/And it was announced today that another

/fifteen thousand National Guard troops

/would be called to active duty

/and deployed to Iraq within the month.

/President George Bush

/is urging all Americans

/to stand united on the war in Iraq.

/And the Bush administration is facing

/some difficult decisions

/on troop levels for the war in Iraq.

/No, you are not bothering us.

/I'm glad you called.

/- How is it going?

- Not good.

/Oh I do wish we were

/there to help you out, hon.

/I saw on the news last night

/that they are extending

/all the National Guard people over there.

/- Will Noah be extended?

- October.

/Oh, I can't believe it.

/What are you going to do?

Well, we can't afford day care.

But if I don't go back to work

in the next six weeks,

we're going to lose

the kids' health insurance.

All right you guys, cut it out now. Stop it.

/I would offer to come out there and help.

/But with Ed's condition I...

- No, I know.

- Mommy.

/- Maybe your parents.

- No.

/- Well, what about Salman?

- Salman?

- What about him?

/- Maybe Salman could come out

/and help you for a while. I'm sure the boys

/would love to meet their uncle.

I don't know. I mean, where is he now?

/He is in Nevada.

What is he doing?

Help! Help!

Is he working?

/No. He was fired again.

/I just heard from him on Mother's Day.

- Yeah. What was he fired for?

/- Oh...

Okay. When you see the red light

that means it is hot enough to laminate.

You just slide everything through here.

And you have to pull it through

on the other side.

Jesus Christ, can I just get one color copy?

Here, I'll be right back.

- I didn't want this laminated.

- Why not?

This is my resume.

- I don't know.

/- I'll call him right now.

/I have a number.

/I think he is living with some friends.

/Now, Les, I don't want you to worry.

/Everything is going to work out.

/Noah will be home in one piece

/before you know it, God willing.

/I'll call Salman and leave him a message.

/It will all work itself out.

/And it will all be okay. Okay?

/The Bush administration sends its top guns

/from the Pentagon to Capitol Hill

/in an effort to reassure all Americans.

/A more emotional debate yesterday in the

/House of Representatives on the war in Iraq.

/It ended, as expected,

/with passage of

/a Republican draft resolution that...

/President Bush got a briefing

/at the Pentagon today. And afterwards...

- Oh, hi.

- Hi.

- Come in.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Don't you have luggage?

- Oh yeah.

- I have this.

- Yeah, that is luggage.

All my other stuff is in storage.

In Vermont and Dubuque.

- Okay. Whatever.

- Okay.

- That is an interesting belt.

- Oh, thanks.

Yeah, I made it myself. At work.

You know, it is basically a cardboard belt.

But it is made with plastic.

So it is a plastic belt.

- It is cool.

- Thanks.

- So, that is one of them? That is Cameron?

- That is Lincoln.

Oh. Okay.

Hi, Cam. Hi, Lincoln. Hi. Hi, Lincoln.

Hi, Lincoln.

No!

Well, yeah. They are kind of shy.

Dinner!

/Many questions today for

/Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld...

Cameron, take a bite.

No, I don't want to. I won't eat anything!

This is good, water.

So I guess we haven't seen you

since the wedding.

Oh. Yeah.

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

- You ever talk to Noah about that?

- No.

I didn't want to. He was so mad.

I just didn't know if...

The fire department and all.

We didn't talk about it.

Oh.

Yeah.

So I have to go back to work tomorrow.

Oh, tomorrow? Okay. All right.

I thought it was next week.

And I will be gone from 8:00 to 5:00.

But sometimes until 6:00.
