Andrews Air Force Base, United States of America
US PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH AND FIRST LADY LAURA LEAVE FOR THEIR AFRICAN
TRIP FROM WASHINGTON.
U.S. President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush climb the steps
to Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington July 7,
2003, as they depart for their trip to Africa. The issue of whether to
send U.S. troops to Liberia hangs over Bush's visit to five countries
where he will discuss democracy, economic development and AIDS.
