What about the first attack on the Twin Towers under Clinton's watch and the five years of killing Americans overseas in terrorist attacks that virtually were not retaliated and emboldening the enemy to plot 9/11 under Clinton's watch?
You don't think Clinton was receiving threats all those years up until he left office? Why didn't he prevent 9/11 if Bush was receiving the same threats?
Selective memory can make people look foolish.
What about the first attacks on the WTC Carol? Did Clinton receive a PDB warning him of an imminent attack like Bush did? No. Clinton responded by attacking the perpetrators Al Qaeda instead of invading countries that had nothing to do with the attacks. The outgoing Clinton administration warned Bush of the danger that Al Qaeda posed and were ignored until we were attacked on 9/11/01.
It was Reagan's abrupt retreat from Lebanon that emboldened terrorists into believing that they could attack this country and its interests without consequence.

BILL TITLE: Establishing a Program to Support a Transition to Democracy in Iraq
October 5, 1998
Democrats voted 157 to 29 to pass the bill.
Republicans voted 202 to 9 to pass the bill.

You keep trying that argument but it doesn't work Carol. In the past changes occurred over long periods of time due to factors like continental drift that changed the patterns of ocean currents. To be sure, there were some sudden changes but they were caused by catastrophic events like asteroid hits or volcanic mega eruptions. The changes we're seeing now are too fast to be naturally occurring and are due to increased carbon dioxide being pumped into the atmosphere from our use of fossil fuels.
Messing with the atmospheric environment doesn't help matters either. But that's what duh wondrous grubbermint of ours do best sometimes..screw everything up.

“Rosalie Bertell, president of the International Institute of Concern for Public Health, says HAARP operates as ‘a gigantic heater that can cause major disruptions in the ionosphere, creating not just holes, but long incisions in the protective layer that keeps deadly radiation from bombarding the planet’.

Physicist Dr Bernard Eastlund called it ‘the largest ionospheric heater ever built’. HAARP is presented by the US Air Force as a research programme, but military documents confirm its main objective is to ‘induce ionospheric modifications’ with a view to altering weather patterns and disrupting communications and radar.

According to a report by the Russian State Duma:‘The US plans to carry out large-scale experiments under the HAARP programme [and] create weapons capable of breaking radio communication lines and equipment installed on spaceships and rockets, provoke serious accidents in electricity networks and in oil and gas pipelines, and have a negative impact on the mental health of entire regions.’

Weather manipulation is the pre-emptive weapon par excellence. It can be directed against enemy countries or ‘friendly nations’ without their knowledge, used to destabilise economies, ecosystems and agriculture. It can also trigger havoc in financial and commodity markets. The disruption in agriculture creates a greater dependency on food aid and imported grain staples from the US and other Western countries.”(Michel Chossudovsky, Weather Warfare: Beware the US military’s experiments with climatic warfare, The Ecologist, December 2007)

In Losing bin Laden you’ll learn:

The never-before-told story of the Saudi government’s attempt to assassinate
bin Laden.
Why Clinton refused to meet with his first CIA Director.
Drawn from secret Sudanese intelligence files, the never-before-told story of bin Laden’s role in shooting down America’s Black Hawk helicopters in Mogadishu, Somalia—and how Clinton manipulated the news media to keep the worst off America’s TV screens.
How Clinton ignored intelligence and offers of cooperation against bin Laden from several Muslim countries.
The 1993 World Trade Center attack—why Clinton refused to believe it had been bombed; why the CIA was kept out of the investigation; and how one of the FBI’s most trusted informants was actually a double agent working for bin Laden.
Why the CIA never funded bin Laden—despite the media myths.
The untold story of a respected congressman who repeatedly warned Clinton
officials about bin Laden in 1993—and why he was ignored.
Revealed for the first time: how Clinton and a Democratic senator stopped the CIA from hiring Arabic translators—while phone intercepts from bin Laden remained untranslated.
How the Predator spy plane—which spotted bin Laden three times—was grounded by bureaucratic infighting.
The inside story of how Clinton defeated bin Laden’s plots to murder thousands more during the Millennium celebrations.
Plus much more, including appendices of secret documents and photos, as well as the established links between bin Laden and Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

Really DUHPont..stop with blaming the dumped bowl of sour milk all on duh cat, when duh dog was the one slurping it first.

The average age of an Army captain is about 28. Some college graduates with advanced degrees can start at the O-3 rank, with no prior military experience. If you haven't reached O-5 by 40 or so, they show you the door.

don' forget "the troubles' in Ireland...what a great euphamism for religious freaks killing other religious freaks...the troubles.. man when they name a drink after your activities, like the Irish Car Bomb...you know you have made it into the hall of fame of religious murderers...
Graduation was fine. The commencement speaker was San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. He's kind of innocuous but got picked because he's a devoted Catholic and CUA is after all a Catholic college.
While there were religious overtones to the Irish situation it was mainly nationalistic with the Catholics objecting to what they felt was an occupation of their country by the English who were Protestants.

How ironic a true Democrats goes to a Christian College.

"Democrats use their surrogates in the ACLU to attack religion (except Islam, which they are too frightened of to go after) in general and Christianity in particular.

It was Democrats who passed Obamacare, and it is Democrats who are using it to bludgeon Christians into changing our principles to suit Democrat principles. No other political Party has ever assaulted religious freedom as Democrats are doing today."

If your primary goal is to achieve the highest rank possible there are lots of things a soldier can do to increase his or her rank. First you can start with your MOS, physical fitness, advance courses, kiss azz, and play cut throat. There was a critical shortage for line commanders in Vietnam and I was R A all the way, rank was not my primary motive for being in the Army. Love of country, along with the feeling of patriotism and devotion to duty all things that you have belittled, yet now you are pretending to love and be concerned about those you condemned previously. You are a natural born loser Galt and you prove it daily. By the way loser what was the name of your truck..."Loser 1"...or maybe " Under Achiever". Maybe "Clueless'?/

A lieutenant colonel is a good rank for anyone in a long time. I assume you never made it past Captain or Sergeant, or lower. That's OK though because we need people like you too. Somebody has to do the menial role.

No one blames him for the attack on the embassy. We want answers. We got lies and no one held accountable.
We have a disengaged president who seems more annoyed than outraged whenever confronted with incompetency or wrongdoing in his administration and never gets to the bottom of anything.
Just like he knew there were problems within the VA in 2008 and promised to make it a priority. But didn't know what was going on until he saw it on CNN.
And now he'll disappear again until it's safe to come out. It's a disturbing pattern.
Having those "brain farts" again Carol? It wasn't our embassy that was attacked it was a consulate.
There were no lies or cover-ups except to hate warped right wingers like you .
How do you know that he knew there were problems with the VA in 2008? You don't. You keep ignoring the fact that the backlogs were at least partially the result of the number of injured from Iraq and Afghanistan plus the decision to make it easier for those veterans who had previously been unfairly denied to receive benefits. The backlog is going down. If administrators at particular medical centers were gaming the system to keep from looking bad then they should be fired.
