White House Reaction

During a July 30, 2003 White House press conference, President George W. Bush was prompted for his reaction to the July 26, 2003 DHS Advisory concerning the al-Qaeda threat of suicide hijacks during the summer of 2003. President Bush stated,

The threat is a real threat...we obviously don't have specific data... al-Qaeda tends to use the methodologies that worked in the past... we're focusing on the airline industry right now and we've got reason to do so.

Famous quotes containing the words white house, reaction, white and/or house:

    The farmer imagines power and place are fine things. But the President has paid dear for his White House. It has commonly cost him all his peace, and the best of his manly attributes. To preserve for a short time so conspicuous an appearance before the world, he is content to eat dust before the real masters who stand erect behind the throne.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    An actor must communicate his author’s given message—comedy, tragedy, serio- comedy; then comes his unique moment, as he is confronted by the looked-for, yet at times unexpected, reaction of the audience. This split second is his; he is in command of his medium; the effect vanishes into thin air; but that moment has a power all its own and, like power in any form, is stimulating and alluring.
    Eleanor Robson Belmont (1878–1979)

    The chief assertion of religious morality is that white is a colour. Virtue is not the absence of vices or the avoidance of moral dangers; virtue is a vivid and separate thing, like pain or a particular smell.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Whatever house you enter, first say, Peace to this house!’ And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 10:5,6.
