Violence is down in the Middle East for the first time in 3 days, and President Bush is crediting his tax cuts, and asking Congress to ensure that the tax cuts are renewed and made permanent as soon as possible.

“It is vital to the War on Terror,” he announced at a press conference, “as the difficulties, and the different crises in the Middle East demonstrate. If we had not enacted the first set of tax cuts in 2000, we would have been hit a lot harder on September the 11th, and the Israeli-Lebanese conflict would be far more volatile than it is today.”
“I do not know, yes?” said Lebanese President Emile Lahoud when asked to respond to Bush’s statement. “Can you rephrase the question in Lebanese? I really don’t understand what he is saying.”

He did not take questions from reporters, but referred them to a briefing paper distributed by aids, “Why tax cuts are a very, very good thing, and Bill Clinton is a very, very bad thing,” soon to be also be made available on the White House web portal.
