WASHINGTON (AP) -- Correcting an inaccurate report, the State Department announced Tuesday that acts of terror worldwide increased slightly last year and the number of people wounded rose dramatically.
The department also reported a decline in the number of people killed -- to 625 from 725 during 2002. But in April, the department reported 307 people had been killed last year -- a much bigger decline.
Clearly this is still more proof of President Bush's bankrupt policies on terrorism. Facts aren't partisan, and these facts speak for themselves: President Bush's handling has been incompetent.
