Killing An Arab
CRAWFORD, Texas (Reuters) - President George W. Bush faced major security challenges on three fronts on Sunday as he prepared to return to Washington after a 10-day working vacation at his ranch.
The fighting in southern Lebanon, concerns about whether there are still suspects at large in the British terror plot and the ongoing war in
Iraq represented formidable issues facing the president.
White House officials were under no illusions that a
U.N. Security Council resolution reached on Friday night would bring a swift end to the month-old Israeli-Hizbollah conflict, as Israeli forces pushed deeper into Lebanon.
On the British terror plot, two dozen suspects were under arrest, but Bush was concerned that more people involved in the plot remained at large and could represent a threat.
"We believe that this week's arrests have significantly disrupted the threat. Yet we cannot be sure that the threat has been eliminated," he said in his weekly radio address.
Bush puts down his summer reading -- including Albert Camus' "The Stranger," and two books on Civil War President Abraham Lincoln -- in favor of presidential briefing books.
And he is back in his limousine after days of riding ranch trails on his mountain bike, once running over an armadillo and another time crashing while trying to negotiate a steep hill...
WAIT! WAIT! WAIT!!! Hold up!
President Bush is reading "The Stranger?"
What the f**k is up with that???
