Bush glimpses Vietnam War's unfinished business

Breaking News

For all the talk of laying to rest the ghosts of a wartime past, President George W. Bush had a grim reminder on Saturday of some of America's unfinished business from the Vietnam war.

Taking a break from diplomacy on the second day of his trip to Vietnam, Bush visited the joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, where U.S. experts are working to find and identify the remains of American war dead.

It was only a brief stop for Bush, the second post-war U.S. president to visit Vietnam. Bush has made clear that rather than dwelling on old animosities, he wants to focus on Vietnam as an emerging trade partner and economic success story.
