They know of a lot of terrorist, many of them right here in the U.S. in the recruitment and training grounds you can find in any major city. Political correctness and fear of being left hanging by this administration keeps them from acting.

Why is a no fly listed person getting on planes bound for the US. Talk about lazy security.

Bush knows Bin Laden from his teenage years. Their parents conducted oil related dealings for years, that alone was enough to make sure he wasn't fit for Presidency.

The skull and bones society both Bushes joined at Yale has a Nazi Swaztica and "War" enscribed on the walls of their basement cave.

Bush also knew of the attacks on the twin towers before it happened. They knew the US was going to be targetted. Bush sat there for 45 minutes after being notified that the towers were attacked. He didn't DO anything to answer the call to duty.

A film director from Austria had more courage to take down the guy trying to detonate a bomb on the plane and ripped the suspects clothes off to check for any more explosives after dragging that attacker to the front of the plane. All those arm chair phoney war mongers don't have an ounce of this man's courageous actions.

Bill Clinton and his national security team ignored several opportunities to capture Osama bin Laden and his terrorist associates, while Bill was playing with Monica at the White House...

Bill Clinton has admitted he was offered bin Laden, which illustrates an enormous opportunity the Clinton administration had to kill or capture bin Laden Slip Away and Metastasize...



In August 1998, President Clinton ordered missile strikes against targets in Afghanistan in an effort to hit Osama bin Laden... and in December 1998 attacks against Iraq...

Which explores Bill Clinton's culpability and complicity for the 9/11 terrorist attack...

Bill Clinton's War Mongering Failures unleashed Global Muslim Terror upon the World.

Ron Paul blasts Bill Clinton's Iraq Bombing Campaign (12-16-1998)

In a press conference aired by C-Span, Representative Ron Paul criticizes Bill Clinton's bombing campaign killing scores of people in Iraq and "PREDICTED" the potential for terrorist attacks against the United States as retaliation.

The TSA's goal is to let "incidents" keep happening so they can keep imposing new rules and restrictions.

They're hoping for the day when everyone will have to fly naked and shakled to their seats.

There are no honorable people in congress. Bernie Madof is more honest, ethical and honorable than anyone in congress or the whitehouse.

And Billy Clinton runs off to Russia, at the height of the Cold War, while a Rhodes Scholar in England. What do those guys COLLEGE DAYS have to do with anything? This is a completely different world/war. And they say history repeats itself. Bush/Cheney were crucified for wire tapping potential terrorists. If I have nothing to hide, I could give two $hits who taps my "whatever". Boom, get ready folks. They are ALREADY in the good 'ole "politically correct" USA. Planning for YEARS and YEARS; just a matter of time. What does this one dumb a$$ed SUPPOSED terrorist in Detroit have to do with security (diversionary tactic???). Many of you are so afraid of losing your rights, which are being taken away more and more away everyday, correct? When you're
F __ Kin' dead from one of these terrorist attacks, won't matter much, eh! Give me a break; take names (already have hundreds of thousands of them) and KICK ASS...never happen. Why don't we just bring the terrorists from Guantanamo to USA soil...hee...hee! Now that' a novel idea.
You reap what you sow...Happy New Year to one and all.

The last few times that I flew, the incompetence of the security staff was amazing. This event does not surprise me at all. Hire more intelligent people and maybe the terrorism will stop.

Soldiers died because of Bush, Rumsfield, Cheney (shoot them in the butte "sharp shooter") and draft dogers all send the US chasing oil in IRAQ while Bin Laden got away to Afghanistan maybe IRAN where his family is turning up. Based on lies.
Nazi's also started their world domination war in pursuit of oil and resources. Bush was an alcoholic and womanizer, and Barbara Bush killed someone in a car accident. Please they are not on any higher ground. Ronald Reagan's wife was heavy into witchcraft and astrology (which is crazy). Those are not conservative people. Ronald Regean too orders from corporate people feeding him speeches (even at his acceptance speech those people were still whispering his speech lines and time cutoff reminders). Senator Craig was a married republican soliciting sex in bathrooms of airports. Republicans are just as secular, promiscuous and liberal. Rudy Guilliani was a cross dresser and having affairs. John McCain was a drunken womanizer and wife abuser with his vocanic unstable temper. He had his wife buy his way into politics much like using his wife's family fortunes to try and weasle into office (like a local insurance guy is trying to do- just buy their seats! Fat chance)

You are absolutely correct - The poster got the old bitch confused with Laura.
Barbara was the one who went golfing the day after her daughter died.
"The day after Robin Bush died of leukemia at the age of three, George H. W. Bush and Barbara Bush played a round of golf. There was no funeral for Robin Bush...Then seven-year-old George W. Bush didn't even know that his sister was sick until after she had died. George W. was not allowed to grieve for his sister. Those who cannot grieve cannot feel compassion.

I didnt vote for Obama,but I know hes not Muslim.
It shouldnt matter if hes black,white democrat
or anything else.My concern is,that he is a puppet.
The President of the United States has few powers.
Its the Senate that you need to look out for,amongst
others.Obama is told what he can and cannot do,and how hes going to do it.You want to pick a bone?Look
at Nancy.I truly believe,that if Obama had his way,
he could be a great man.The truth is,women,are in
control of our Government,not men.Im not bashing
females,I am one,Im bashing a woman that has caused
dissent between the two parties,and torn our Government in half.Men can usually agree to disagree,but women are vindictive and manipulative
creatures.As long as Nancy is in charge,the fracture,will broaden into a very large crag.

Yes, but look how successful Nappy the bulldog and DHS have been at keeping elderly norwegian grandmothers from committing acts of terrorism. Don't you just love political correctness to DEATH!
