A Burning Question

“If you believe Bush, as the commander and chief, is responsible for preventing a terrorist attack, then who should be held responsible for not preventing 9/11?” (A Liberal Questioner)

WE (the American people) ARE.
In 1993, in the wake of the first WTC bombing, America’s MSM reported what James Fox (then head of the FBI’s NY Office) said, “America’s criminal justice system is inadequate to the task of dealing with state sponsored international terrorism.”

That was the official END of terrorism being treated as a “criminal justice” problem as James Fox (at the time, America’s leading domestic terror expert) effectively declared an UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER on the part of America’s criminal justice system. Yet, the American people not only didn’t clamor for “an all-out war against the jihadists,” we virtually INSISTED that they be ignored as so many of us were into the dot-com boom at the time. Not me, I wanted to re-enter Iraq right after the first WTC attacks in 1993!

Still, after that first WTC attack, TWO American embassies in Africa were bomber, the USS Cole was attacked, the Kobalt Towers in Saudi Arabia were bombed...each and every one of those were SINGULAR acts of war against the United States.

That’s what terrorism IS, “Unconventional warfare carried out by de facto “soldiers” without uniforms, directed against civilian populations.”

It wasn’t that the government WANTED to ignore this growing war against America and American interests, in fact, Bill Clinton bombed Iraq in 1998. Both he and Hillary Clinton rightly supported the invasion of Iraq in 2003. They understood, as most people who read anything on the subject that (1) Saddam’s Iraq apparently had little if anything to do with 9/11, (2) Saddam Hussein was a rogue state terror supporter, and (3) Saddam’s Iraq had al Qaeda camps within its borders PRE-9/11 and cooperated WITH al Qaeda AGAINST a common enemy – the Kurds.

The fact is that 9/11/01 is NOT the basis for the War on Terror (WoT), if it were then the current WoT SHOULD’VE BEEN a criminal justice one and the Patriot Act COULD BE considered superfluous overkill...and the Liberal view would have some merit.

Of course, I’m aware of absolutely no valid opinions (that is, opinions from people who have any actual expertise in the matter – law enforcement, First Responders, military or Intelligence sources) that see 9/11/01 as the focus of the WoT. It was a mere “triggering event,” an incident so large that the American people took notice and the view that “the American criminal justice can not deal with state sponsored, international terrorism, making that terrorism a military matter going forward,” became overwhelmingly accepted by the folks.

The military WoT abroad was rightfully consigned to the U.S. military, while the domestic WoT was given over to law enforcement and the DHS. Dozens of domestic attacks have been stifled and most of the jihadists have been focused on fighting either in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Regardless, America has NOT been attacked since 9/11/01 and the credit for that must go to the DHS, the Patriot Act and the many other things the current administration has done.

While We thank you for your service fighting fire your willingness to fall prey to right wing propaganda and therby spread it makes you the only thing on Terra worse than an idiot,-- an idiot with a sheaf of partisan talking points.

Hey! It's a "Truther."

Ironically enough EVERY last 9/11 Conspiracy has been thoroughly debunked.

Folks who insist on entertaining such idiotic views shouldn't be wasting their time typing into a computer....they should be READING.

A good place to start would be "Debunking 9/11 Myths: Why Conspiracy Theories Can't Stand Up to the Facts can find it at;

Liberalism is emotionalism and that is always opposed to logic, which is why "Big Government Liberalism" and other forms of socialsim have never worked - they CANNOT work.
