President Bush Prepares Contingency Plans for Obamas Early Days in Office

December 17, 2008

Washington D.C. (ChattahBox) – It looks like everyone is nervous about the transition of power this January. With this being the first shift in the White House since 9/11, President Bush and his administration are trying to be as helpful as they can to ease the shift of Obama’s Presidency, a surprisingly cooperative move that seems to show how afraid everyone really is of an impending international crisis.

More then a dozen contingency plans have been put in place to help President-Elect Barack Obama deal with an emergency when he enters the White House for his first term, which has come during a time of economic crisis, two wars, and increased hostilities and tensions with countries like Pakistan and Iran.

Each plan deals with specific, and increasingly likely, scenarios that could very well occur in what is sure to be an already turbulent term, such as an attack on American computers, increased instability in Iraq and Afghanistan, or further terrorist strikes on the American, Canadian, and British citizens abroad, such as the recent attacks in Mumbai that left 250 Westerners dead.

These contingency plans are only one step in the briefings Obama will be put through between now and his inauguration, and I am sure I am not the only one who is relieved to know that during a time when so much could go wrong, it’s Mr Obama who will be sitting in the oval office.
