SAFER?....President Bush, in remarks at Oak Ridge National Laboratory on July 12:

America is safer....the American people are safer....the American people are safer....the American people are safer....the American people are safer....the American people are safer....the American people are safer....America and the world are safer.

The Pentagon, July 15:

Ever since a hijacked jetliner crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, parents whose children attend day care there have been assured their kids were safe. But last week, Defense Department officials told them the center would close in the fall because they could no longer ensure the children's safety.

...."The threat assessments have determined it would be imprudent to continue," said Glenn Flood, a spokesman for the Defense Department.

I guess the Pentagon forgot to tell the White House speechwriters about this.
