Pelosi touts progress on 9/11 bill

By ERICA WERNER, Associated Press Writer 24 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi used the Democrats' weekly radio address Saturday to tout her party's passage of legislation to implement major recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.


The House passed the bill Friday on a 371-40 vote, a day after the Senate passed it 85-8. The White House said the president would sign it.

The legislation would shift money to high-risk states and cities, expand screening of air and sea cargo and put money into a new program to ensure that security officials at every level can communicate with each other.

Its passage ranks among the top accomplishments of the 6-month-old Democratic Congress. Republicans would say it's one of the few.

"We will have done in six months what previous Congresses failed to do for almost six years," said Pelosi, D-Calif.

1. gee, NOthing about Bush radio address in this Article. Did he make one today?

I do not see it on yahoo, but i could have missed it.



..........The 9/11 bill would require screening of all cargo on passenger planes within three years. It also sets a five-year goal for scanning all container ships for nuclear devices before they leave foreign ports.

"The threat of terrorist violence against the United States is growing. Al-Qaida is gaining strength, and Osama bin Laden continues to elude capture," Pelosi said. "There is not a moment to spare to take the steps necessary to keep the American people safe."

4. Well, that's just great Nancy.
Meanwhile, in Washington, we have crooks occupying top positions in government. They have/are lying to us, they have/are spying on us, they have/are violating the terms of their oath of office, they are illegally politicizing parts of government that must be neutral.

And you, Nancy, have decided to do NOTHING ABOUT IT!

Hop down off your high horse and put a few things in perspective, OK, Nancy? Without the Constitution your government - our government - means NOTHING. And you are doing NOTHING to protect it, which I believe you also promised to do when you took your oath of office.

Put impeachment on the table, Nancy. It MUST be done.
