WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Warning that al Qaeda operatives were "still lurking around" and could try to attack next with biological weapons, President Bush ( news - web sites) signed a law on Wednesday expanding U.S. stockpiles of drugs to protect Americans from smallpox, anthrax and other deadly germ agents.

"These people are the kind of people that ... try to find a soft spot around the world and burrow in and plot and plan. And we're just going to have to enforce the doctrine, either you're with us or against us. You join the coalition of freedom or you're on the other side of the fence," Bush told a newly created Homeland Security Advisory Council, which held its first meeting on Wednesday.
