Attorney General John Ashcroft Briefing From the Department of Justice

Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan says the economic impact of the September 11th terrorist attack is not as bad as people thought it might be. But he also says the US economy hasn't "snapped back" either. Several major US companies have announced lay-offs and many retail stores report a decline in sales.
