Bush Speech September 11, 2006

Posted by fajita in 9/11, General.

The word “barbarity” was used.

Recalls heroic acts, lost lives, and sacrifices.

Bush taps his right hand a lot.

Very serious tone.

Bush framed the enemy as someone who hates freedom, women are not free and men are beaten for missing prayer metings.

Compared to Cold War threat.

“The war is not over.”

“The Middle East will be overrun with  extremists.”

Stuttered on “intelligence.”

Gitmo is to hold people accountable for their actions.

Answers presence in Iraq. “They were a threat.” “The world is safer becuase Saddam Hussein is no longer in power.”

Bush said, “foment.”

Iraq’s unity government. Hmmm.

The safety of America depends upon what happens in the streets of Baghdad.

Osama calls this “the third world war.”

Left hand holding down the right hand.

War death toll nearly 3000 American soldiers. Almost as mnay killed on 9/11.

“Tore down the wall between agencies.” Clinton poke?

“Passager planes?”

“They fear our freedom.”

There goes those hands again.

Bush frames it as a clash between tyranny and freedom.

We changed our policies because what were were doing wasn’t working (paraphrased).

Invoked WWII without saying WWII.

“Evil” count = 5

Leave the desert of despotism for the fertile grounds of freedom.

Best resource is not oil, but creativity. (That was actually a pretty good line).

Personal interest story about fallen firefighter. Sons went to military and firefighting. Proud mother. Hard to criticize.

The attacks were meant to bring us to our knees, and they did – in prayer.

Faith in a loving God.

18 minutes and out.

Tim Russert and Brian Williams talk. russert predicts that Democrats will criticize the speech. Geez, I need to be in news reporting. I tihnk i could have come out for that one.
