9 / 11 Panel Member: U.S Could Be Safer

Now there's an understatement!

Nothing will get done that costs business any money, even if it means millions of deaths.

Junior and Vice do nothing that big business doesn't like.

9 / 11 Panel Member: U.S Could Be Safer - New York Times:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Al-Qaida is gaining strength and the United States is still not as safe as it should be, former Indiana congressman Tim Roemer said Saturday.

Speaking about a week after failed bombing attacks in Britain, the 9/11 commission member chided Congress and the White House for not taking enough action to secure the country from another attack. Roemer urged lawmakers to move forward on adopting safety measures the commission suggested and asked President Bush not to threaten to veto the proposed legislation.

''Only half of these bipartisan recommendations have been passed,'' Roemer said during the weekly Democratic radio address. ''The White House's execution and funding of them has received failing grades.''
