Hezbollah plays a central role in international terrorism, President Bush said. “The enemies of liberty come from different parts of the world, and they take inspiration from different sources,” Bush said Thursday in a speech to the American Legion in Salt Lake City. “Some are radicalized followers of the Sunni tradition who swear allegiance to terrorist organizations like Al-Qaida.
