"Inauguration to Get Unprecedented Security"
WASHINGTON (AP) - Security for President Bush's inauguration - the first swearing-in since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks - will be unprecedented with some 6,000 law enforcement personnel, canine bomb teams and close monitoring of transportation.

In describing the plans for the Jan. 20 event, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge said that while the decibel level was down on terrorism chatter, the 55th quadrennial presidential inauguration was such a high-profile event that security would be at its highest level.

"This is the most visible manifestation of our democracy," Ridge said at a news conference near the Capitol, where Bush will take the oath on the West Front.

Ridge detailed some of the security plans, including patrols of harbors, mobile command vehicles, round-the-clock surveillance of the key facilities and thousands of security personnel. He likened the resources to those used during the political conventions last year.

4. Thanks for the welcome Green :)
Hopefully I can break the stereo-type that NOT all Christians are Right Wing fanatical-Pat Robertson loving-Neo Cons. Some of us are sane and rational and are truly guided by love.

7. No, it's not
The parties and ceremonies are privately funded, but things like security come out of public coffers. In this case, much of it is coming out of DC's homeland security funds. So, Bush will have more storm troopers to keep away protesters, but a firefighter a mile from the White House won't have gear in case of a chemical attack.

They don't want the committed to see what they are missing.
