I believe it was one warning to the FBI, one to the CIA. I'm positive that there will be a new government agency created to oversee government communication. Yeehaw, job creation!

I read Karl. You have a point?

Mine was that terrorism has been around for centuries. Always has been, always will be. Catholics have used it, Native Americans have used it, Muslims have used it, and on, and on, and on.

It would seem that Duke sees those of an opposing opinion as the White Devil.
It would seem that you have the cognitive skills of a fly.

I saw that last night on the Hannity. Eric Holder is out of control (i.e., refusal to prosecute the New Black Panther's; Fast & Furious collaboration with Mexican Drug Cartels, Boston Bombing fiasco). Its time to take America back before its too late.

Tamerlane was 26 (not 23), but reading comprehension was never your strong suit Rufus. You are so clueless that you do not realize that the very Muslims you defend would behead your for your lifestyle.

Do you mean "rufous" as in red?

Hardly an insult, even from you.

Enjoy your wallow.

"muslim" is not an ethnicity, yet you claim it is:

Perhaps if the people who were here a long time ago had better immigration policies a whole lot of things would be different, but that's not where we are, huh?
Its a classic red herring for you to claim that in a nation built by immigrants, the root cause of terrorism on American soil is unchecked immigration of people of certain "ethnicity".
woof
Not to mention, those "immigrants" who came here from Europe eradicated the native population by spreading disease or killing those who refused to be subjugated. Then those that remained, the "immigrants" tried to force their religion on them as well as their clothing and culture. Sound familiar?

B.S. Until these certain ethnic groups were allowed into this country unchecked, we never heard of terrorism on our shores.

Are you retarded?

Do you know the definition of terrorism? Let me get it for you just in case you don't.

terrorism: the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion

What do you call the bombing of the 16th Avenue Baptist Church in 1963 which killed four little girls? The bomb was planted by the KKK - TERRORISTS. Might I add that that bombing killed ALL children and one more person than the bombing in Boston.

The list goes on and on, but terrorism was very much alive and well here in the United States before any Muslim stepped foot here.

During the 1790's after we became a nation we had problems with the Barbary Pirates (North African Muslims) A treaty arose from that, The Treaty Of Tripoli. You might want to read up on it.
I know plenty of Muslims and have had some business with many. Never had a problem, they were the most humble, honest people I dealt with back in the day.
The G.W. Bush crowd who wanted war in Iraq was about the same percentage of overall Christians Americans as Muslims who carried out 9/11. A few, well placed idiots is all it takes.
your G W Bush crowd was the ENTIRE CONGRESS !!!!!!!!

Congress voted to go to war.

John Kerry and Hillary Clinton both Senators at the time voted YES to go to war with Iraq.

it is public record........look.

your rhetoric is comical to those who can sift the BS from fact.

background checks on pots and pans would have prevented Boston bombings?

limiting the capacity of pots and pans to 1 pint , and criminal charges for owning a pot with capacity exceeding 1 pint.

you don't need anything larger than a 1 pint pan to cook with.

those 3 gallon pots are a very dangerous object in society and require confiscation.

Immigrants came, in large part, in fulfillment of the Commandment of Jesus to take the gospel to the entire world, North America, Africa, etc. White Europeans have fulfilled this commandment of Jesus more than any other demographic on earth. You were a member of a Christian organization before you denied the faith, heretic, so even you should know this.

Your idiocy and lack of comprehension misses the point that as a matter that became law established we were'nt as war war with the Islam. Stretch it anyway you'd like, the Treaty Of Tripoli spelled that out;
If you hate Islamists, go to war with them, our government won't back you so have at it...

Yawn. Only the most uninformed, agenda-driven leftists reference the obscure Treaty of Tripoli which served a narrowly-defined purpose, as follows:

"The American negotiators of this treaty did not want the religious differences between the United States and Tripoli to hinder attempts at reaching a trade agreement. Claiming that the United States was not 'founded upon the Christian religion' probably made negotiations proceed more smoothly. But today this brief religious reference in a rather obscure treaty in the history of American diplomacy has played a prominent role in the debate over whether the United States was founded as a Christian nation. It has become one of the most deadly arrows in the quiver of those who oppose the idea that the country was founded on Christian principles.

If the Treaty of Tripoli is correct, and the United States was not 'founded on the Christian religion,' then someone forgot to tell the American people. Most Americans who followed events in the Mediterranean viewed the struggle between the United States and the Barbary nations -- a struggle that would last well into the nineteenth century -- as a kind of holy war. Americans published poems and books describing Muslims as 'children of Ishmael' who posed a threat to Christian civilization. Captivity narratives describing Christians who were forced to convert to Islam only heightened these popular beliefs. In fact, the sentiment expressed in the Treaty of Tripoli -- that the United States was not 'founded on the Christian religion'-- can hardly be reconciled with the way that politicians, historians, clergy, educators, and other writers perceived the United States in the first one hundred years of its existence. The idea that the United States was a 'Christian nation' was central to American identity in the years between the Revolution and the Civil War.

Nineteenth-century Americans who believed that the United States was a Christian nation made their case in at least three different ways. First, they appealed to divine providence. The United States had a special place in Godís plan for the world. The success of the American Revolution confirmed it. Second, they argued that the founders were Christians and thus set out to create a nation that reflected their personal beliefs. Third, they made the case that the U.S. government and the documents upon which it was founded were rooted in Christian ideas. Todayís Christian nationalists have a good portion of American history on their side....

When ministers, politicians, and writers during these years described the United States as a 'Christian nation,' they were usually referring to the beliefs and character of the majority of its citizens. The United States was populated by Christians. This meant that it was not a 'Muslim nation' or a 'Buddhist nation' or a 'Hindu nation.' Indeed, the people of most Western European nations in the nineteenth century would have used the phrase 'Christian nation' to describe the countries to which they belonged. But in America the phrase 'Christian nation' could also carry a deeper meaning. It was often used as a way of describing the uniqueness of the American experiment. It was freighted with the idea that the United States had a special role to play in the plan of God, thus making it a special or privileged Christian nation. Moreover, when nineteenth-century Americans talked about living in a 'Christian nation' they rarely used the term in a polemical way. In other words, they were not trying to defend the label against those who did not believe the United States was a Christian nation. Instead, they used the phrase as if it were a well-known, generally accepted fact."

You lost me at Jesus. Eyeroll. Sounds like you're just like those militant Islamists who think everyone should believe just as you do.

And as for being a heretic, I was never a Catholic.
