President George W. Bush has received a summons to report Monday for jury duty in Crawford, Texas.
I can hear it now.
“Umm, Juror # 286, what is your verdict?”
“Thank you very much. We must never forget the most vivid events of recent history. On September the 11th, 2001, America felt its vulnerability — even to threats that gather on the other side of the earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat, from any source, that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America. Many Americans have raised legitimate questions: about the nature of the threat; about the urgency of action — why be concerned now; about the link between the development of weapons of terror, and the wider war on terror. These are all issues we’ve discussed broadly and fully within my administration. So now, as the Commander-in-Chief of the armed services in this great nation, and the undisputed leader of the free world, I firmly believe and feel a strong obligation to say what I’m about say.”

“Thank you all, and may God Bless the United States of America.”
