White House Remodeling 'Situation Room'

WASHINGTON -- The Situation Room at the White House isn't one room at all but a sprawling 5,000-square-foot complex. And it's nothing like the state-of-the-art Counter-Terrorist Unit on TV's "24."
When a remodeling project is completed _ after eight months and a classified number of taxpayer dollars _ White House officials expect their 'Sit Room' to function at a higher level and look a lot better than the place Henry Kissinger once described as "uncomfortable, unaesthetic and essentially oppressive."
