We're off to a strong start. About to read a — statement that was agreed upon by our distinguished guests. The representatives of the government of the state of Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization, represented respectivuh, by Prime Minister Ehud Olmult, and President Mah — Mahoovad Abbas in his capacity as Chairman of the PLO Executive Committee and President of the Palestinian Authority, have convened in Annapolis, Maryland, under the auspices of President George W. Bush of the United States of America.
Even if getting both right was out of the question for Dubya, you would still hope Dubya could have gotten one or the other ("Ehud Olmert" or "Mahmoud Abbas") right. Annapolis, Maryland, Nov. 27, 2007
REPORTER: Did you look back at any precedence of any other president's trips?
DUBYA: There is no precedent in the war on terror. This is the first war of the 21st century, unique in its nature. But I don't know. I guess you all need to do that. I don't know whether or not — I think Lyndon Johnson went as a Vice President, or as President. I don't know.
REPORTER: He was in Asia and he made an unscheduled trip.
DUBYA: Into Vietnam as President?
REPORTER: Eisenhower went to Korea as a —
DUBYA: Franklin Roosevelt went to North Africa, but the front was in Tunisia. I think, but maybe not.
REPORTER: Abraham Lincoln went to Richmond a couple of days after —
DUBYA: He sure did. I got the picture of the White House of the — Lincoln with his generals and Admiral Porter talking about the peace. I think that's what you're talking about.
REPORTER: But he was mobbed by people when he went to — this was a couple of days after he fell.
DUBYA: Right. And he was on a boat outside of Richmond — unfortunately called the "Peacemakers." It had a wonderful rainbow behind he and his generals. That's where he's talking about making sure the peace was fair and generous so that the United States would stay united. And, interestingly enough, the original is in the — upstairs in the Trinity Room in the White House. And it is in the Pentagon, as well, a copy of it, which I found to be very — so I remember going into the Pentagon and — somebody took — But thanks for honoring it.

REPORTER: Mr. President, we were told you got to see Mr. Chalabi today?
DUBYA: I did see Chalabi. I met with — well, let's see, I had the dinner, you saw that. I wasn't sure how long you were there, you probably timed it, but an hour or so — are these the times? Oh, these are the people there. I shook a lot of hands, saw a lot of kids, took a lot of pictures, served a lot of food and we moved on to see four members of the Governing Council — the names are here. Talibani is the head of it right now, so he was the main spokesman. But Chalabi was there, as was Dr. Khuzaii.
Was it really too much to call him Mr. Chalabi? Air Force One, Nov. 27, 2003
The law I sign today directs new funds and new focus to the task of collecting vital intelligence on terrorist threats and on weapons of mass production.
