One rather disturbing sidenote though: [i]Foreign countries have offered help during previous domestic emergencies in the United States, such as the Sept. 11 terror attacks. But never in recent history has there been such an outpouring as this week, said U.S. State Department spokesman Tom Casey. The Bush administration has offered mixed signals on whether it would accept such aid. In an interview with ABC on Thursday, President Bush said the United States was not seeking foreign assistance. “This country is going to rise up and take care of it,” he said. But on Friday, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice expressed “the heartfelt thanks of the president, the United States government and all Americans” to those who had offered support.[/i] (By Hector Tobar / Los Angeles Times)
