The Bush administration claimed progress in undermining global terrorism Tuesday but said the enemy has adjusted to US defenses and that "America is safer but we are not yet safe." Releasing an updated counterterrorism strategy in advance of a speech that President George W. Bush was set to give later in the day, the White House said: "The United States and our partners continue to pursue a significantly degraded but still dangerous al-Qaida network." "Yet the enemy we face today in the war on terror is not the same enemy we faced on Sept. 11," said the 23-page terrorism strategy update, referring to the attacks on the Pentagon and New York's World Trade Center five years ago. "Our effective counterterrorist efforts in part have forced the terrorists to evolve and modify their ways of doing business." The updated strategy came in the wake of the release of a new al-Qaida video over the weekend that raised concerns about the possibility of another attack as the fifth anniversary of Sept. 11 approaches.
