Philadelphia mayor (sharp guy) re Kensington Strangler

"I urge all citizens to be smart & safe."

Oh, good. Thanks, Mr. Mayor.

White House Press Secretary (not in 2002, but this week) -

"We're in Afghanistan to disrupt & dismantle al-Qaeda & make sure they can't freely plan attacks like 9/11."

Gee, that sounds familiar. But in the context of an Afghan official carrying $52 Million in suitcases into Dubai, and the Afghan President talking about joining the Taliban, that sounds a little less than reassuring.
