With a battle looming in Congress over
the future of the four-year-old war,

the President's surprise trip was an
attempt to head off increasing pressure

for a withdrawal by highlighting the
war's successes.



(nats)

A year ago, Anbar province was
dominated by al Qaeda. But local sunni
leaders

turned against the terror group and
teamed up with U-S forces. Now the
remote

region is the White House model for all
Iraq.



(SOT Bush): "In Anbar you're seeing


first-hand the dramatic differences
that


can come when the Iraqis are more
secure. In other words, you're seeing

success."



The visit came just as Congress returns
from a monthlong vaction, with

Democrats intent on forcing the
administration to change tactics.



(nats)

But the President tried to beat them to
the punch BY DOING what he has refused

to do for months - leave the door open
to a drawdown of U-S forces.



(SOT Bush): "If the kind of success we


are now seeing continues, it will be

possible to maintain the same level of
security with fewer American forces."



But he STRESSED that any change in
force levels will be determined by
military

strategy, not political convenience.



(SOT Bush): "Those decisions will be


based on a calm assessment by our

military commanders on the ground - not
a nervous reaction by Washington


politicians."



Those commanders will deliver to
Congress next week a pivotal report
assessing

the effects of the troop surge...that
the White House hopes will match the

enthusiasm of the Presidential pitstop.



(oncam)

The President's willingness to even
consider modest troop reductions could

prevent further Republican defections.

Sterne was shot in the leg and
had tied an electrical cord around it

Sterne's mother - Suzanne Grimes
said in her e-mail to News 7 - the
Virginia Tech review panel's report did
not inclue information from ALL
survivors.

Including Kevin, seen on campus in a
story we aired last winer.

His mother says after graduation
- it was widely published that Kevin
was returning home to the Pittsburgh
area for recovery - but said Tech never
made a phone call that would have
allowed him to participate in the
panel's fact finding report.


Grimes also focused on the errors
on April 16th.

She said quote "it is not
unreasonable on Virginia Tech's part to
acknowledge their errors; however they
still defend their actions that day."

She wrote about Seung Hei Cho
Sung He Jo - "He may have been the gun
man, but the errors on the part of so
many contributed to this horrific
massacre."

And Grimes called for the
resignation of administration and other
officials saying it would only be fair
to the Virginia Tech community. >>

children.



LIVE=BOB FULL AT BAM LIVE FULL

*CG standup Bob Grebe
bgrebe@wdbj7.com Kimberly, it's so important for
drivers to be aware of their
surroundings, especially in school
zones and neighborhoods where children
walk to school or wait for the bus to
pick them up.




ENG#=1 VO NAT

VO NAT


*CG locator Roanoke

With many kids returning to the
classroom, now's a good time for
drivers to brush up on Virginia law...

Passing a bus that is loading or
unloading is considered reckless
driving.

Yellow flashing lights mean the
bus is getting ready to stop and so
should you.

If convicted of passing a bus
that has its red lights on... and is
stopped to load or unload... you will
receive a six-point violation that will
stay on your driving record for
11-years.



LIVE=BOB FULL AT BAM LIVE FULL



It's also important to note, in
the case of a bus that has
non-functioning signal device, you must
stop if the bus is loading or
unloading.

Triple-A Mid-Atlantic offers the
ABC's of traffic safety for kids.



TAKE FS GFX TAKE FS GFX - ((((CG2 11255))))
CG2-11255 The group urges parents and
caregivers to explain to children...
"A"... they need to always obey school
crossing guards and school safety
patrols.


TAKE FS GFX TAKE FS GFX

"B"... Kids need to look both
ways every time they cross the street.


TAKE FS GFX TAKE FS GFX

And "C"... Use crosswalks and
corners to cross the road even when
cars are not around.

(END GFX) (END GFX)







LIVE=BOB FULL AT BAM LIVE FULL



Triple-A advises, children need
to take their time and not rush to the
bus or across the street.

Kids need to remember that
drivers can not always see them.



DOUBLE BOXES=Bob and Kim (DOUBLE BOXES)



And if children need to cross the
road to enter the bus, the need to walk

in front of the bus, never behind it.

(END SOT)



With a battle looming in Congress over
the future of the four-year-old war,

the President's surprise trip was an
attempt to head off increasing pressure

for a withdrawal by highlighting the
war's successes.



(nats)

A year ago, Anbar province was
dominated by al Qaeda. But local sunni
leaders

turned against the terror group and
teamed up with U-S forces. Now the
remote

region is the White House model for all
Iraq.



(SOT Bush): "In Anbar you're seeing



first-hand the dramatic differences
that

can come when the Iraqis are more
secure. In other words, you're seeing

success."



The visit came just as Congress returns
from a monthlong vaction, with

Democrats intent on forcing the
administration to change tactics.



(nats)

But the President tried to beat them to
the punch BY DOING what he has refused

to do for months - leave the door open
to a drawdown of U-S forces.



(SOT Bush): "If the kind of success we


are now seeing continues, it will be

possible to maintain the same level of
security with fewer American forces."



But he STRESSED that any change in
force levels will be determined by
military

strategy, not political convenience.



(SOT Bush): "Those decisions will be


based on a calm assessment by our


military commanders on the ground - not
a nervous reaction by Washington

politicians."



Those commanders will deliver to
Congress next week a pivotal report
assessing

the effects of the troop surge...that
the White House hopes will match the

enthusiasm of the Presidential pitstop.



(oncam)

The President's willingness to even
consider modest troop reductions could

prevent further Republican defections.

not inclue information from ALL

Including Kevin, seen on campus in a

His mother says after graduation
- it was widely published that Kevin
was returning home to the Pittsburgh
area for recovery - but said Tech never
made a phone call that would have

allowed him to participate in the
panel's fact finding report.

Grimes also focused on the errors
on April 16th.

She said quote "it is not
unreasonable on Virginia Tech's part to
acknowledge their errors; however they
still defend their actions that day."

She wrote about Seung Hei Cho
Sung He Jo - "He may have been the gun
man, but the errors on the part of so

massacre."

And Grimes called for the
resignation of administration and other
officials saying it would only be fair

Bob Grebe joins us now with
safety tips for drivers and school
children.

*CG standup Bob Grebe
bgrebe@wdbj7.com Kimberly, it's so important for
drivers to be aware of their
surroundings, especially in school
zones and neighborhoods where children

walk to school or wait for the bus to
pick them up.

With many kids returning to the
classroom, now's a good time for
drivers to brush up on Virginia law...

Passing a bus that is loading or
unloading is considered reckless
driving.

Yellow flashing lights mean the
bus is getting ready to stop and so
should you.

If convicted of passing a bus
that has its red lights on... and is
stopped to load or unload... you will
receive a six-point violation that will
stay on your driving record for
11-years.



LIVE=BOB FULL AT BAM LIVE FULL



It's also important to note, in
the case of a bus that has
non-functioning signal device, you must
stop if the bus is loading or
unloading.


Triple-A Mid-Atlantic offers the
ABC's of traffic safety for kids.


TAKE FS GFX TAKE FS GFX - ((((CG2 11255))))
CG2-11255 The group urges parents and
caregivers to explain to children...
"A"... they need to always obey school
crossing guards and school safety
patrols.


TAKE FS GFX TAKE FS GFX

"B"... Kids need to look both
ways every time they cross the street.


TAKE FS GFX TAKE FS GFX

And "C"... Use crosswalks and
corners to cross the road even when
cars are not around.

(END GFX) (END GFX)







LIVE=BOB FULL AT BAM LIVE FULL



Triple-A advises, children need
to take their time and not rush to the
bus or across the street.

Kids need to remember that
drivers can not always see them.


Bob toss to birthdays toss to birthdays


And if children need to cross the
road to enter the bus, the need to walk
in front of the bus, never behind it.

in an accident in Cana on Sunday.

They were riding in a pickup when
it veered off the road, flipped and
caught fire.

State police say speed was a
factor -- and the 15 year old driver
was too young to legally be behind the
wheel.
