Opinion in Brief

Safe, but not yet safe

The rhetoric coming from the Bush administration during the time of the fivth anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, was this: though safer, we are not yet safe.

It’s an interesting balancing act to play in an election year – pretending to be steadfast guardian of the country while acknowleding that something could still go wrong. Bush, for all his misstatements, got it right when he said, “The terrorists have to be right once; we have to be right 100 percent of the time.”

The truth is that no administration, Republican, Democrat or otherwise, could protect the American people with absolute certainty. So why politicize our nation’s security?
