White House Says “Party on Garth”

Bush’s Homeland Security Advisor Frances Townsend encouraged Americans to celebrate the New Year without worry of a terrorists attack on ABC’s Good Morning America.

"People ought to come, have a good time, they ought to feel confident"

The White House has heard no plot or plan that should cause alarm as the nation celebrates New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. What about the big pot of terrorist stew President Bush cited just months ago? Of the threatening hordes, Frances only mentioned al-Qaeda in reassuring the country.

"We hear statements all the time" from the al-Qaeda terrorist network, among others, “rarely are they attached to actions."

What about Hamas, Hezbollah, & the Mahdi Army as the Pentagon says radical Cleric al-Sadr is now a larger threat than Osama bin Laden?

Did Frances talk about anything else on the program? Did she mention the White House Lessons Learned report post Hurricane Katrina? Did Robin Roberts ask the following ?

"Why does the Hurricane Katrina Lessons Learned report omit any mention of the hospital with the largest number of patient deaths? Carlyle Group affiliate LifeCare Hospitals received not one mention in the White House post mortem on its handling of the crisis. Care to comment Frances?"

Had Mrs. Roberts asked the question, might she have received a profanity laced tirade for which Mrs. Townsend is famous (according to Time magazine)? Come to think of it, I haven’t heard the media interview her for that poor performance
