Bush admits al-Qaeda still biggest threat to U.S
http://feeds.bignewsnetwork.com/?sid=41d1edb902b82c2c

Al Qaeda is still the biggest short-term threat facing the United States, President Bush said Friday, adding that North Korea and Iran pose equal security threats to the U.S.

"They would like to attack us again," Bush said of al Qaeda at the National Newspaper Association's Government Affairs Conference in Washington. "I think about al Qaeda and their potential to attack all the time."

The president also recalled his "axis of evil" remark in his 2002 State of the Union Address, in which he said North Korea, Iraq and Iran were threats to the United States. "I did that because I'm concerned about totalitarian governments that are not transparent, that have stated their intentions to develop nuclear weapons," he said of the speech.

"They would like to attack us again" well if Bushy would have caught Osama after 5 years maybe we could rest easy... but alas MaBus still is out there!!! He beats Iran ...

Juan Cole for example. Bush lies reflexively. We have always been at war with EastAsia.

9. Nope. The biggest threat to US (in)security
is our own fear and loathing.

Period.
