Bush, Presidential Debate, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, October 11, 2000. “We will stay until the mission is done. … Peace will be achieved by helping Afghanistan develop its own stable government. …[We] are working in the best traditions of George Marshall.

Bush, Virginia Military Institute, April 17, 2002. “The United States Congress has stepped in to find nearly $300m in humanitarian and reconstruction funds for Afghanistan after the Bush administration failed to request any money in the latest budget.” BBC World Service, 13 February, 2003.
