Discussion With A Liberal
Liberal reaction to my critique of the drug war:
we're on the same page here- Gore Vidal wrote a crazy book after 9// claiming that the drug war has resulted in our terrorism problem- you got to read the whole book to understand the logic- our theories(yours and mine) about why we haven't had another 9/11 may be tested- according to the lead piece on last nites CBS news, law enforcement sources expect a terrorist attack in this country by the end of the year- truthful? or just trying to scare the voter for their Nov elections?- you just don't know anymore
We know there has been none for 5 years. Just an accident I guess.
you know it was on the Bushman's watch that 9/11 occurred-- in both Afghanistan and Iraq mayhem continues- our military has its own 9/11 in Iraq -2,500 dead 17,000 wounded- Osama and his boys are still running free- everything the Bushman touches goes to (Pot) excuse the pun-my theory is he's created more terrorists with his Rambo approach- I only hope that the lull here at home continues, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Bush should have connected the dots.
But then you would have argued upon what basis he could suspect such a conspiracy or it was profiling innocents or the information was improper to use because it breached the Chinese wall between the FBI and local law enforcement. Only after the attack should it have been stopped by any means necessary. Then 5 years later we hear he has breached (of course legally acceptable per Presidential war powers granted by Congress and the FISA act) certain rights in monitoring phone records generally or specific calls to and from the Middle East.
But he has created terrorists?
I guess they are not people with brains and will. They cannot decide what is the proper course on their own. Just like Israel created Palestinian terrorists. Inaction for over a decade while terrorist acts escalated had nothing to do with prompting Bin Laden. By the way, I see his videos every 9 months. Quite a happy life he leads holed out in a cave for 5 years. I wouldn't choose to hide for 5 years.
