Fun fact from the speech last night: when Bush mentioned " the name of a totalitarian ideology that hates freedom, rejects tolerance and despises all dissent" he wasn't, in fact, referring to his own administration. Who knew!

I actually watched this one for a change (for my own sanity, I usually just read transcripts in the morning.) After all, a couple sources said there would be new info in the speech. I sure didn't hear anything I haven't heard ten times before.

* Complete transcript.
* Post analysis sure heard 9/11 a whole bunch. BBC analysis found it a 'subdued appeal.' And the NYTimes analysis found the President being more direct, but with a familiar theme.
* LiveOnline transcript from right after the speech.
* reports mixed reactions. found the same worldwide. And the reports the reactions among soldiers and their families.
* Also, NYTimes editorial.
