From the BBC: [Stability and prosperity
The president said progress in Africa was crucial because the interests of the developed world were directly at stake.
"The whole world will benefit from prosperity and stability on the African continent," he said. He said the events of 11 September 2001 showed the United States was threatened by instability abroad.
"We fight the war on terror with power, we will win the war on terror with freedom and justice and hope," he said.
Mr Bush also said there was a deep need across the continent to provide women with greater empowerment and improve the opportunities for primary education.]
