The Taliban was the government of Afghanistan. The government of Afghanistan created the environment for Al Qaeda to establish its headquarters there. The Taliban protected Al Qaeda.
The government of Afghanistan was a critical part of the plan to attack the United States. Without the cooperation of the government of Afghanistan, the attack on the United States could not have been executed.
Today, as was the case in September, 2001, Al Qaeda and the Taliban are indistinguishable.
Afghanistan attacked the United States.
And, they got an American boot up their ass for it.
Go away dirtbag__the average education level of the Taliban's leaders washes out at about 7th grade just behind the Iranian ayatollahs 9th grade average.

The AQ leaders and indeed the 9/11 terrorists had twice the level of education.

You're really lost on this subject aren't you?

The birther and Beck threads are still in business__maybe you should go back to where you can compete eh?

Tell me again about Napolitano rallying 50,000 Mexicans with 9mm handguns to overthrow the Republic.

I realize that righties all have problems thinking or understanding ...So allow me, They took flying lessons that could be easily tracked, bush did absolutly nothing there sre numerous other precautions that could have been taken...And ignoring was not one of them. now get your head out of the sand snd smell the roses.
By whom? Who did the tracking? Which agency oversaw the coordination of information? There was no such super agency established in eight years under Clinton, yet you think one should have been operational in seven and a half months under Bush.

It was not illegal to take even questionable flying lessons. Who would have locked up the students for taking flying lessons? For how long? Once they were out would you prohib them from ever flying again? On what legal basis would you have done that? What would have stopped other students from taking normal flying lessons then utilizing just half the lessons, then carrying out the plot.

Even after our establishment of a Homeland Security office, janet Napolitano declared "the system worked" when passengers disarmed the panty bomber. The red flags were ignored.

In Boston, the Feds neglected to advise the locals of alerts from the Russians; they allowed a reason here under an amnesty grant to travel, and remain for a lengthy time in a terrorist friendly country, and return here without scrutiny.

As I said before, drivel. I will add, simplistic thinking.

Dear Concerned Citizen:

Every week, Americans across the nation rely on their cars, trucks, and SUVs to get to work, take their kids to school, and run their businesses. Almost every week, hard-working Americans need to stop at their local gas station to fuel up.

The last thing we need to worry about is what “blend” of fuel the EPA thinks we should put in our gas tanks.

But that’s not what Congress was considering when they passed the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The standard mandated that gradually increasing amounts of biofuels be blended into gasoline and diesel. However, when they set this arbitrary amount, they didn’t realize that the amount of gasoline and diesel we are using is steadily decreasing. In short, there is not enough gasoline and diesel to absorb the biofuel.

We need to tell Congress that the Renewable Fuel Standard is not the right answer for American’s energy strategy.

Failure to repeal the Renewable Fuel Standard this year will create big problems for American consumers:

• Ethanol blends above 10% could damage millions of vehicles on the road today and void engine warranties;
• Higher ethanol blends could harm gas station infrastructure;
• The economic damage will impact everyone.

The answer is clear: The RFS is an unworkable federal mandate that must be repealed. Take action today!

Sincerely,

Energy Citizens

What is happening to our country? Gays, who represent less than 3% of our population, are trying to dominate our culture and society. Love whom you want. Love the one youre with. People dont really care. This is the message most people want to say but are afraid to because the LBGT (lesbian, bi-sexual, gay and transgender) community will verbally flog anyone who doesnt agree with them. Between gay marriage, gay adoptions, forcing the Boy Scouts to admit gay scouts and scout masters, and lauding a rich NBA player for announcing hes gay, the message is clear from gay America to the 97% of the rest of us. You will accept our lifestyle as mainstream. My response:'No I wont.'"

This was all put in motion long before Obama became president.

Obama and the Democrats have hijacked and perverted words such as 'community' and 'compassion' for your neighbor, redefining them to claim moral authority for their desired government redistribution extorting the earnings of one group to give to another. Under Obama, government dependency is honorable. Obama's vision of a perfect society is destructive to the human spirit. It is evil and wrong."

Nope, Iraq war was a deliberate fraud created by Bush/Cheney. They are war criminals for lying America into an unnecessary and unprovoked war.
So the indisputable fact that Saddam not only had WMDs but used them on innocents and had the determination and capability to use them again when the world wasn't watching doesn't concern you?

How about the indisputable fact that he paid the families of suicide bombers to kill our soldiers?

Did you think Saddam was going to change just because the UN gave him a hard time?

If we had not taken down Saddam, whose problem would he be now?
