WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush said today the United States is "in hot pursuit" of terrorists behind the Sept. 11 attacks, but he gave no details. A top Bush administration official said U.S. forces have conducted scouting missions in Afghanistan, where suspected terrorists are hiding.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the work of U.S. and British forces is a prelude to potential military action. The official denied reports that the forces, deployed in the past few days, are actively seeking prime suspect Osama bin Laden.
