Quotes of the Morning: Safe and Secure

“Would the United States and other free nations be more safe or less safe with Zarqawi and bin Laden in control of Iraq, its people and its resources?”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, October 28, 2005

“Yes.. Would we be safer if we hadn’t invaded Iraq?”

“A top Justice Department official said Wednesday the government would strive to work better with cities to stem crime on the streets.
Deputy Attorney General Paul J. McNulty told a gathering of mayors and police chiefs from 50 cities that he was concerned about reports of growing violent crime _ including homicides, robberies and aggravated assault _ in cities nationwide. He acknowledged difficulties due to demands with fighting terror and wars abroad.
He said the Justice Department was seeking more funds for its Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives division to stem gun trafficking. But reclaiming money that was diverted from crime-fighting to anti-terror efforts may be difficult, he said.
‘I wish I could stand here and say all that will be restored in the next year or two,’ McNulty said. ‘We are facing some big challenges. I see the challenges in fighting the war on terror. I see it is very expensive to fund soldiers overseas. At the same time, we have to find ways to get resources to win here at home.’"
-Associated Press, August 30, 2006

“Hey, it is tough to support local crime-fighting efforts when all of your funding is going overseas. We need to fight gun violence over in Iraq so we don’t have to fight it here… Hey, wait, that doesn’t make any sense…”

“I'm not the expert on how the Iraqi people think, because I live in America, where it's nice and safe and secure.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, September 23, 2004
