In case you just woke up from a fifteen-year, Abu Nidal, for one.
In case this information wasn't in your indoctrination sessions, Saddam Hussein was giving money to mothers of suicide bombers.
In case you were still abducted by aliens at that time, Afghanistan attacked us on September 11, 2001.
When did the aliens return you to Earth?

You know, there is a distinct possibility that Obama really doesn't know what's going on around him. The 'puppet' theory might be closer to the truth than previously thought. Instead of the media being in his back pocket, the reverse may be the case - but I doubt it.
Is that like Bill Clinton’s “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is”?

So why was Afghanistan the center of this planning & finance as you said???
Ummmmmm. Let me think.
Do ya think it was because BIN LADEN WAS THERE?
Will just one of you right whiners admit we invaded Afghanistan to get on Laden??
Is there one??? Carol?? Jimmy? No Surprize/TSM?? Dumbwaiter? Galt?
So far we have Flack & Eman saying we would have invaded Afghanistan if Bin Laden was somewhere else.
We could have gone after obl without invading. There was more to it than obl being there.

Bush did invade another country harboring international terrorists: Iraq.
The reason we had a military presence in Afghanistan is because Afghanistan attacked us and started a war. If it were some other country other than Afghanistan that started a war with us, we would have dealt with that country. But, it was Afghanistan that attacked us, not some other country.
In reality, it was the Arab Wahhabist jihad that attacked us. Afghanistan was the country that allowed itself to be where the attack came from. To fight the war they started, you have to fight them, and they come from every Arab country in the world. Pick the country best suited for success.
Mission accomplished.
Al Qaeda was not in Iraq prior to our invasion. I thought we went in to dethrone Sadam. Will you Right whiners make up your minds!

Now Afghanistan attacked us?

Okay, I guess I'm going to have to just post what was in this article.

"Shortly after the gruesome discovery of aborted babies in a dumpster behind Dr. Alberto Hodari's Womancare abortion facility in early March, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society discovered the mutilated bodies of aborted babies in another dumpster at Women's Advisory Clinic in Livonia, Michigan, owned by Dr. Reginald Sharpe."

This was in 2006 and in just one state.

I cringe at how prevelant this is in 2013 in all states.

One common theme emerges from the hearings over the Benghazi disaster: The Obama administration is intent on downplaying the Islamic roots of terrorists who harbor an existential hatred of the West.

The killing of Osama bin Laden was supposed to have cut the hideous head off a mutant snake. His death officially destroyed the “core” of the aberrant al-Qaeda.

The removal from power of the outlier Qaddafi was likewise to have put an end to the artificial obstacle to the natural evolution toward democracy in Libya. In those regards, an al-Qaeda–inspired, pre-planned hit on the American consulate, resulting perhaps in a full-fledged Mogadishu-like shootout, just was not in the administration’s pre-election cards.

No one was disposed either to beef up security in the face of escalating threats, or to send in teams in extremis to save the besieged Americans, or to give an honest appraisal afterward of what had transpired.

Meanwhile, the opportunity to blame the entire mess on an easily caricatured right-wing Christian Islamophobe crackpot was too tempting — as Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, and the president himself found as they serially damned the suddenly-to-be-imprisoned Mr. Nakoula. He was a con artist, but not the provocateur of the Benghazi violence — and yet he proved a perfect vehicle for showcasing the administration’s multicultural bona fides.

In terms of explaining away the lapses in Benghazi, the challenge arose of how many ways top officials could damn the unfortunate Mr. Nakoula — as if each denunciation made it unnecessary to utter the word “terrorism” or “al-Qaeda.”

The fantasy that prior American policy was insensitive to Muslims and did not differentiate sufficiently between Islam and al-Qaeda has been an article of faith of this administration.

Go back and review the initial Obama interview with al-Arabiya or the loud professions of CIA director John Brennan, who was Obama’s chief counterterrorism adviser at the time of the Benghazi attack.

The corollary of this fantasy was also natural:

The greater worry is anti-Islamic bigotry and prejudice, not heightened awareness of the propensity for certain people to commit terrorism in the supposed service to Islam.

This odd mindset explains both the Orwellian euphemisms (overseas contingency operations, man-caused disasters, workplace violence, violent extremism, etc.) and the collective madness of some career-minded bureaucrats competing with one another in the public arena with their politically correct nonsense (cf. the Muslim Brotherhood as “secular,” NASA’s “foremost” mission as Muslim outreach, or jihad as a “holy struggle”).

That groupthink was based on the flawed idea that the more we deny an Islamic catalyst to terrorism, the more there will be none.

The problem was not just that elites seeking to ingratiate themselves with the Obama administration routinely indulged in such willful blindness, but that these absurdities filtered down to the day-by-day protocols of our intelligence and law-enforcement bureaus.

In almost every major recent terrorist incident in which Americans have been attacked, the question is not whether, but on how many occasions, American intelligence agencies knew of, and had good cause to detain, the eventual perpetrators, whether Anwar al-Awlaki, Nidal Malik Hasan, or Carlos Bledsoe.

Those on the ground in Benghazi had warned their State Department superiors that American facilities were in danger from attacks by Islamic radicals.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was visited by the FBI and known to the CIA for his overt jihadist sloganeering.

In each instance, the warning signs were ignored. These omissions raise the question: Why?

um....political correctness is more important the using common sense?

The anti-Bush narrative from 2003 to 2008 (spawned by the unexpected luxury of no further 9/11-like terrorism) was largely that reactionaries and bigots had cooked up a war on terror against nonexistent enemies.

Or maybe these paranoid sorts had even goaded otherwise moderate Muslims into terrorism by their counterproductive anti-terrorism protocols: Take away the Guantanamo Bay “recruiting tool” or Iraq as a “provocation,” and, presto, Islamic-inspired terrorism itself wanes.

In near religious fashion, almost every time Barack Obama traveled abroad in his first three years as president, he evoked Guantanamo. It became a sort of verbal tic, intended to denigrate his predecessor and showcase his own multicultural brand.

Alas, for all the obsequiousness and cash, U.S. popularity in the Middle East is as low as it was under Bush.

Yet privately, Obama and his supporters hedged somewhat, in fear that the odious Bush might have been onto something about radical Islam.

Thus, rather quietly, President Obama immediately embraced almost all the Bush-Cheney anti-terrorsim policies and even expanded some of them, with the full knowledge that his own base would prove quite flexible now that he was president.

Let's kill all infants a mother doesn't want, then let's go half way around the world to adopt one.
How about this:
Everyone knows where babies come from.
Everyone has access to birth control.
Everyone should be responsible for their own choices. If you choose to f**k some worthless dirtbag who doesn't give a sh*t about you, you have to live with the consequences derived directly from your own choices.
You say you need availability of abortion. What you really need is to use birth control and make better choices in the people you drop your drawers for.
Everyone does not have access to birth control. The best most effective methods are expensive. They require a doctor's appointments, prescriptions & follow ups.

As for better availability of these more reliable options, talk top the Pope & Republicans.

Abu Nidal was murdered in Iraq most likely upon the orders of Saddam. Saddam also hated OBL and stated that he'd kill him with his own hands. Saddam, the paper tiger, did not need the aggravation of international terrorists at the same time that he was suffering under punishing UN sanctions.

Saddam had "reportedly" paid some families of suicide bombers "as much as" $35,000. The number and total of payments remains in dispute.

You are a fkn lying birther, conspiracy loon and topix troll, nothing you post is true or even plausible. Go away and take all your hats along witcha.
