Bush visits Atlanta, Savannah

September 7, 2006

President Bush is in Georgia today.

He met an audience at Cobb Galleria center in suburban Atlanta, where he gave a speech on the global war on terror.

During the president's visit to Atlanta, he was met with protestors. About 70 people lined the sidewalk before President Bush's arrival.

They waved signs saying, "From New Orleans to Iraq, stop the war on the poor."

During his speech, President Bush defended his actions since the 9/11 attacks.

"Many Americans look at these events and ask the same question: five years after 9/11, are we safer?" he said. "The answer is yes. America is safer."

Before getting on Air Force One to leave, President Bush met the Little League World Series champions from Columbus.

Later in the day, he attended a reception for 12th Congressional District candidate Max Burns near Savannah.
