Something like: "Although we can't bring their loved ones back, we owe it to these families to be sure that our government is doing everything to bring to justice those who want to harm Americans..."

Imanutjob supposedly made a veiled threat to Bush today, according to Drudge:

"The official Islamic Republic News Agency said Ahmadinejad had warned in a speech that anyone who refused to accept an invitation would suffer a bad fate. It said the statement was a reference to Bush's rejection of an invitation by Ahmadinejad for a televised debate."

But that has nothing to do with 9/11 families.

It's got to be real, but it's also got to help.

He's breaking into soaps, so he's going after the security moms. I'm betting on national security information. He'll mention the Democrat's letter, and the hook will be his response to it. He'll have Rummie by his side, and he'll pledge total support and more progress.

Blind guess.

Well said, and I would agree.

Then predictably he will be accused by the left of using Sept 11th for political gain. ungghh.

On the news they said there might be more in store than Gitmo since Tony Snow said more than one time that there would be an 'enormous' amount of news today. I'm intrigued.

I find it strange that he would speak at 1:45 rather than prime time. Were it a national emergency, why not go on immediately. If it's of major import, why not wait until tonight.

That was my thought as well.

The White House is asking networks to break into soaps for the president later today.

And I'm asking for a pony.

They're sure doing a good job of keeping it under wraps if nobody on FR has any inside info as to what's going on.

Where is the Press Conference...has the President snuck off to Iraq again, LOL?

Maybe they're planning something special for the 5 year anniversary of 9/11, but why break into soaps for that announcement.

We've actually stopped a major terrorist strike on American soil scheduled to take place in Washington DC, LA, NY, Chicago, Dallas, and Orlando...?

With all the lead up of major captures in foreign lands lately, I am wondering when we would announce a few of our own...

Again, why would a routine policy announcement (yes, I know, it is big) be broadcast on the networks?

I just don't think that is it.

Wow, I am surprised they are breaking into the networks just for that.

I guess it is the Gitmo trials they are going to talk about.

How odd.

A sudden request to break in to regular programming.

Tony Snow suggest there'll be an enormous amount of new today.

9-11 families present.

It's a national security topic...big one.

According to a later post, it only is him talking about the trial procedures.

BORING.

Why interrupt tv for that? He never interrupts tv, even for major announcements.

Somebody over at the WH is smoking weed this morning to request time for THIS trivial announcement.

Hopefully he will call it World War Three today.

It has to be said. I am waiting for it.

We are in World War 3. or world war 4. whatever he wants to say. The serious tone needs to be jacked up a lot.

When is Bush going to give a primetime speech telling the American people what would happen if we left Iraq, giving a perspective of how serious the global war on terror really is.. and then call it World War Three.

we need more fire out of this president.
