President George W. Bush said Wednesday he would order military action inside Pakistan if intelligence indicated Osama bin Laden or other top terror leaders were hiding there. Bush was asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer whether he would give the order for American troops to kill or capture bin Laden or other terror leaders if good intelligence pointed to their whereabouts, even if it were inside Pakistan's borders. "Absolutely," said Bush. "We would take the action necessary to bring them to justice."
