U.S. Reaction

NPR's Don Gonyea reports as the American crew returned to U.S. soil in Hawaii, President Bush made a statement from the White House welcoming them home. He pointedly said that the incident had not advanced constructive relations with China. And Mr. Bush stressed that the U.S. had done nothing to cause the accident with a Chinese fighter that led the American plane to make the emergency landing on Hainan Island.
