Bush Salutes Ted Stevens

On Monday afternoon, Bush flew to Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska on his way to Asia for the Olympics.

He went out of his way to salute Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska, who was in attendance, even though he’s been charged with seven felony counts dealing with corruption and lack of disclosure of corporate gifts.

“The United States military has had no better supporter and stronger friend than Senator Ted Stevens,” Bush said. “Thank you for coming.”
