Chertoff: "We Have to Be Realistic"

From the Washington Times:
There can never be full and absolute security for potential terror targets in the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff says.

Speaking to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Chertoff said there had to be realistic expectations and people had to remember al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden's strategy .... "We have to be realistic about what we expect and what we do. We do have limits and we do have choices to make."
Not only that. If the federal government could ensure "full and absolute security" against terrorist attacks in the U.S., wouldn't that remove the Bush administration's favorite election-season trump card?
