President Bush, choking on his words, offered condolences today to the families and friends of 47 sailors who died in the explosion aboard the battleship Iowa. "We cannot--as long as we live--know why God has called them home," he said to 6,000 mourners, among them most of the ship's crew. "May God bless them all," he added, choking up and dropping the last portion of his prepared text. Bush, a Navy fighter pilot whose two crew mates died when his plane was shot down by the Japanese in Pacific combat in 1944, vowed to uncover the causes of last Wednesday's blast that killed men trapped inside the turret of one of the 58,000-ton ship's massive 16-inch guns.
