Biden does not rule out possibility of 'lone wolf' attack

(CNN) – Vice President Joe Biden says the country is safer today than it was 10 years ago but does not rule out the possibility of a “lone wolf” attack.

“There’s always a possibility of an incident occurring,” Biden told CNN’s John King in an exclusive interview Saturday. “But I do not believe there is anyone right now capable of putting together the kind of extremely complicated, planned operation that took place on 9/11.”

Some Republicans signal openness to Obama's jobs plan

Washington (CNN) – As it considers President Barack Obama's $447 billion jobs plan, many members of a divided Congress appeared Friday to be in a compromising mood, seemingly eager to placate voters sick of infighting and inaction when it comes to jumpstarting the economy.

Top House Republicans - who have butted heads with Obama and his fellow Democrats on most every major policy effort since taking over the chamber early this year - went into the speech reserving judgment, and struck a collaborative tone after listening to the president's laundry list of proposals.

Obama, Giuliani discuss American safety in weekly addresses

Washington (CNN) – With heightened terror alerts raised on the 10th anniversary weekend of 9/11, President Barack Obama and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called on America to remember its unity in the days after the attacks.

“They wanted to terrorize us, but, as Americans, we refuse to live in fear,” said Obama in his weekly address Saturday. “Yes we face a determined foe, and make no mistake-they will keep trying to hit us again. But as we are showing again this weekend, we remain vigilant. We’re doing everything in our power to protect our people. And no matter what comes our way, as a resilient nation, we will carry on.”
