The next four or five weeks are going to be a--keep focus on the counter-terrorism aspect of this Department. Why, because it is the reason this Department was started and there's a lot of work to be done in that area. One of the first things I will be doing is leaving on a week-long trip Saturday to Europe and to Kuwait where I'll be working on Homeland Security issues in a variety of ways."
