'We don"t have concrete evidence, but we have good reason to suspect' Mr. bin
Laden, said a U.S. official familiar with the briefing given to President Bush.
With the investigation continuing, President Bush wasn"t expected to announce
military action during his prime-time address, officials said.
Afghanistan"s hardline Taliban rulers, who are sheltering bin Laden, rejected
the suggestion that he was responsible.
