Quotes of the Day NEWSMAKER QUOTE OF THE DAYFormer NYC Police Commissioner, former interim minister of the Interior and senior policy advisor to the U.S. Presidential Envoy in Iraq, Bernard Kerik talks to Imus about the situation in Iraq:“The feel in this city, the feel in the country is the everyday crime is coming down. The resistance is still there. The resistance is going to be there for some while until you take out all the primary heads of the resistance and that takes time and it takes intelligence. The answer is not more troops. You know I’ve watched over the past week or so all these presidential candidates get up on television and say we need more troops and that there’s not a plan. Well, there is a plan. And the plan is to keep pushing forward to collect intelligence, to create an intelligence service. The answer is not more troops. You put more U.S. troops, you make more U.S. targets. We have to make sure that we know what’s going on within the country and that’s intelligence, so they have to create an Iraqi intelligence service to do that. And that’s all being done, it just takes time.” SHOW QUOTE OF THE DAYImus comments on Richard Grasso:“It just seems outrageous. The fact is the guy was worth the money. He wasn’t just some pencil pushing regulator. He was almost like Wall Street’s version of Elvis.”You can get on our e-mailing list today by clicking right here: SUBSCRIBE(Or just read our online edition below.)
