All told, more than 3,000 suspected terrorists have been arrested in many countries. Many others have met a different fate. Let’s put it this way — they are no longer a problem to the United States and our friends and allies. (Applause.)
The rough plan, which sounds quite ambitious: Finish the space station. Then junk the shuttles and work on this new CEV: “Crew Exploration Vehicle”. It starts testing in 2007. Back slowly away from the space station, and focus on returning to the Moon, starting in 2013. Establish a permanent Moon base, and then start thinking about sending people to Mars.
I hope this is all going to be backed up with some well thought out rationale when it’s actually announced. But who wouldn’t get excited over a Moon base?!?!?
