Bush set to name Kerik to homeland post
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- President Bush today is set to name a second-term homeland security secretary who knows all to well the cost of terrorism.

Officials say his choice is Bernard Kerik, who was New York�s police commissioner on the day hijackers flew airplanes into the World Trade Center. Twenty-three of Kerik�s officers perished when the twin towers fell.

Since leaving the force, Kerik has served on the Nine-Elevencommission, helped train police in Iraq and campaigned for Bush�s re-election.

The announcement is coming a day after Bush tapped Nebraska Governor Mike Johanns to be his new agriculture secretary and U-N ambassador John Danforth tendered his resignation.

Danforth has only been U-N envoy since June. But he was passed over when Bush named Condoleezza Rice to succeed Colin Powell as secretary of state. Officials say the 68-year-old former senator has decided to retire.
