At the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Sydney, Australia, President Bush used a photo opportunity with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to react publicly to a new video featuring Osama bin Laden.

The tape is "a reminder about the dangerous world in which we live," Bush said.

"It's important that we show resolve and determination to protect ourselves, deny al-Qaida safe haven and support young democracies," Bush said.
