Hey, look at this news clip on youtube.com .



It's Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld going on tv telling the nation that the Pentagon had "lost" TWO TRILLION DOLLARS, ONE DAY BEFORE 9/11.

How's that?

They say the trillions stolen were never accounted for and given that kind of timing, who could blame them? ;)

Geez...

FACTS DONT MATTER TO THE IDEOLOGUES---

"Yes.

Put him under oath and grill him about 9/11.

Then send him to the Hague."

"Hmmmm... using this "logic," then, if there were no white male Americans, there would have been no Oklahoma City bombing where little children lost their lives."

GREAT ANALOGIES--JUST KIDDING OF COURSE

BECAUSE THE RADICALS FEEL EMPOWERED---WATCH THE VITRIOL---BECAUSE THE FACTS EVADE THEM---

WE WERE AND ARE AT WAR AND MISTAKES MAY AND WILL BE MADE--MISTAKES ARE ALWAYS MADE IN WAR---

THE FACTS ARE STILL NOT IN---MANY REVIEWS HAVE BEEN DONE ON GUANTANAMO---NOTHING FOUND OF CONSEQUENCE OTHER THAN HOLDING AND INTERROGATION--

LETS LET THEM ALL OUT ON KAILUA BEACH IN LATE DECEMBER DURING OBAMA'S VISIT AND SEE HOW INNOCENT THEY ARE----JUST KIDDING OF COURSE... BUT THAT MATCHES THE MENTALITY OF THE LEFT

Doesn't "Al Quaeda" mean "The Toilet" or "Going to the toilet" in Arabic?
What kind of fundamentalists name their group, "The Toilet"?
darn those pesky facts!

It doesn't mean that at all. You must be referring to it's meaning the "sitdown" or "the base" which may translate to toilet in some circles, but that's not the meaning. It means the "base of life." It's always a mistake to mock your enemies, because it blinds you to reallity. Remember when Japanese soldiers were believed to be near-sighted, and Italians were all thought to be cowards? Cost many American lives to prove that wrong. Like the Viet Cong said, "We will teach them to respect us."
