    To err is human, to really screw up, requires a bunch of politial appointees ignoring the advice, and information from professionals.


    Yes, we SHOULD remember, THAT!

    You really shouldn’t blame Bill Clinton for everything. Yes he should’ve taken out OBL when he had the chance and he should’ve seen the sleeper cells preparing for years right here in the US.
    But Bill Clinton was a little busy “debriefing” his interns.

    Very poignant. Thank you, Mr. Stantis.

    You must have a very narrow and simplistic view of the world to think policy is either liberal or conservative, and merit is judged accordingly.

    Bush, jr knew that an attack had been threatened. And he took every precaution in the book. Under the primitive US law in effect in ‘01, every potential hijacker could not be shipped off to Guantánamo without any evidence against them except for a rumour, and Bush, jr had most of them stopped and manually searched to see if they had any weapons. Since they had absolutely no weapons (except what they found on the planes), the best experts said they couldn’t possibly hijack a plane.


    Bush, jr expected the most likely attack would be an embassy in the MENA, and all were secretly on high alert (I was almost shot when someone asked me to meet him at the embassy and I tried to go in to look for him).


    Bush, jr took every reasonable precaution that the experts said he should have taken. The left-wing-nutcases think he should have been prescient, announced the suspension of the Constitution on 10 Sept ‘01, and packed the 19 Muslim shebabs off to Guantánamo BEFORE the attacks too place.


    Of course, some might criticise Bush, jr’s response to the attack: punishing Iraq when no Iraqis were involved. Lying to say he had ‘proof’ Iraq was behind the attack. And a few other things like that.

    Spitting on their graves

    Across the nation, public officials will strike somber poses and shed television-friendly tears and bow their blow-dried heads in memory of the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

    They’ll hold hands, light candles, and pass around a plateful of platitudes: “Never forget,” they’ll intone. “Let’s roll,” they’ll thunder. “God bless America,” they’ll warble in perfect harmony.

    They’ll assure us that they are committed to fighting terror and securing our borders and doing whatever it takes to protect the homeland from another horrific mass murder at the hands of freedom-hating fanatics. And then?

    And then, from Washington state to Washington, D.C., they’ll go back to work, roll up their sleeves, and spit on the graves of the 9/11 dead.

    Your pious city councilwoman will return to the office to draft a resolution condemning the common-sense detention and deportation of Middle Eastern illegal aliens suspected of terrorism.

    Your politically correct police chief will refuse to cooperate with federal authorities in criminal investigations of illegal visa overstayers and border-crossers and ship-jumpers.

    Your pandering mayor will stealthily renew his policy of preventing city employees from reporting illegal aliens.

    Your indignant local librarian will promote fear-mongering and misinformation about the Patriot Act.

    Your regional Chamber of Commerce president will join forces with Canadian and Mexican government representatives to put business interests ahead of border enforcement.

    Your tuition-thirsty university president will lobby behind closed doors against federal efforts to track foreign students and ensure that they go home when required. Your vote-hungry governor will encourage document fraud through his support of insecure foreign-issued identification cards and driver’s licenses for “undocumented workers.”

    Your race card-fearing congressman will court Arab and Muslim special interest groups and donors who have coddled Islamists on college campuses, in prisons, and in the U.S. military in the name of “diversity.”

    Your grandstanding senator will block funding for long-delayed homeland defense measures — such as a national entry-exit system to monitor temporary foreign visitors — even as he whines about the need for more money to ensure our safety.

    Your incompetent Transportation Security Administration will stonewall pilots who want training to be armed, squander tens of millions of taxpayer dollars on lucrative contracts for weapons-detection equipment that doesn’t work or get used, and continue to ban racial profiling.

    Your indifferent Interior Department will look the other way as underequipped and understaffed park rangers along the southwestern border remain vulnerable to drug smugglers and terrorists.

    Your bloated Homeland Security Department will keep Clinton-era holdovers in pivotal positions, reduce routine inspections at seaports in the name of efficiency, and continue to shortchange interior enforcement against deportation fugitives and asylum con artists in favor of duct tape tipsheets and cosmetic color-coded alerts.

    Your corrupted State Department will appease Saudi terror-backers, reward butt-covering managers, assuage European travel industry tycoons, and continue to defend lax visa screening policies.

    Your Democratic presidential candidates will unanimously endorse the very kind of amnesty policies that allowed several al Qaeda operatives to infiltrate this country and hatch terrorist plots.

    And your Republican Party elites will continue to spurn immigration enforcement reformers within their own ranks for fear of alienating ethnic constituencies that will never vote for them anyway.

    To those who lost their lives on Sept. 11 because their government failed to enforce its borders, laws, and sovereignty, the politicians and bureaucrats and civic leaders will ostentatiously offer one measly day a year of dedication in rhetoric — and 364 days of desecration in deed.

    Some challenge, you want 58 to respond in consecutive sentences and write coherent paragraphs using facts of record. This will be interesting.

    I still remember the nation getting snookered by the criminally incompetent nincompoop in the Oval Office to allow him to keep his position and lead us into two wars, financial disaster and endless corruption.
