1) When you think of 9/11, think of muslims.
2) When you think of muslims, think of 9/11.
3) When you think of president Hussein Obama, think of 1 & 2.

Liberals support Hussein Obama at every step.
They are no better.

It will go the same way as Pearl Harbor.
In fifty years it will be ancient history to most folks.

Just as there has always been speculation as to
how the Japanese could have pulled off the attack
on Pearl Harbor without detection, there will always be suspicion that the Bush Administration was complicit in the attack on 9/11 and why after repeated warnings about terrorists flying airliners into tall buildings the Bush people paid no attention.

There were NO warnings of an attack by terroists flying airliners into tall buidlings. FBI, CIA and 9/11 commision reported only concerns by the Clinton administration especially Gore that there could be an attack on American soil, method unknown.

Your still a lying fabricating left wing socialist. Don't forget the Air Force Barracks, US Embassies, The Cole and other attacks while slick was chasing interns, brainless.

No they were warned numerous times,especially that an airliner may be used.DUH Anyone with half a brain could have surmised that a commercial airliner could be used as a weapon.

Prove it, FBI? CIA? 9/11 Commission?

You don't have a thing except more fabricated leftist allegations.

So in your thinking, since the terroists were already here training in Florida in 98 and 99, Clinton and Gore knew about it and Gore stayed quiet due to his loss of the election. SOB should be in Gitmo!!!

Federal authorities have been aware for years that suspected terrorists with ties to Osama bin Laden were receiving flight training at schools in the United States and abroad, according to interviews and court testimony.

Three days after the attack on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III described reports that several of the hijackers had received flight training in the United States as "news, quite obviously," adding, "If we had understood that to be the case, we would have -- perhaps one could have averted this."

A senior government official yesterday acknowledged law enforcement officials were aware that fewer than a dozen people with links to bin Laden had attended U.S. flight schools. However, the official said there was no information to indicate the flight students had been planning suicide hijacking attacks.

"We were unable to marry any information from investigations or the intelligence community that talked to their use of this expertise in the events that we saw unfold on the 11th," the official said.

Connections between terrorists and flight training include the following:

In 1996, two flight school operators said last week, FBI agents visited them to obtain information about several Arab pilots connected to a Pakistani terrorist eventually convicted of plotting to bomb U.S. airliners.

1996 Bush wasn't President, he was governor of Texas and had not decied to run. Hang it up, your battery is dead.

WASHINGTON The White House acknowledged Wednesday night that U.S. intelligence agents warned President Bush a month before Sept. 11 that Usama bin Laden's terror network might hijack American planes, but officials said the president had no way of knowing that they would use the planes as missiles for suicide attacks on American landmarks.

"There has been long-standing speculation, shared with the president, about the potential of hijackings in the traditional sense," White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said. "We had general threats involving Usama bin Laden around the world and including in the United States."

The CIA would not confirm what it told Bush, but the agency said the issue of bin Laden's attempting an airline hijacking was among a number of terrorist methods raised to U.S. government officials at the time.

But there was no information that suggested hijackers would crash planes into American landmarks and there was no mention of a date, a CIA official said.

TOO BAD THE HISTORY BOOKS IN THE UNITED STATES OMIT THE FACT THAT 9/11 WAS A DOMESTIC FALSE-FLAG OPERATION DESIGNED TO CONTINUE THE STRICT MILITARISM THERE THAT AROSE AFTER WW2 WITH THE FAKE COMMUNIST THREAT AND CONTINUED UNTIL THE FAILURE OF THE SOVIET MODEL.

WITHOUT THE SOVIET MODEL THREAT THE MILITARY IN THE UNITED STATES WAS AN EXTRANEOUS INSTITUTION AND THE 9/11 FALSE-FLAG OPERATION, TOTALLY PLANNED IN THE UNITED STATES BY CONSERVATIVE ZEALOTS, WAS DESIGNED TO CORRECT THIS BY MAKING ISLAM THE NEW WORLD-WIDE THREAT.

??? What are you talking about? You idiots blindly follow anyone with an R after their name no matter who it is or what they say. Take Palin or Bachmann for examples.

On the other hand, I don't support Clinton, Pelosi, Reid nor Obama. They might as well change their political affiliation to republican. Have you forgotten when Pelosi told the world it didn't matter what laws bush had broken, or would break, congress would never do its duty to provide oversight? Have you forgotten how Obama keeps almost all of the bush policies in place?

You get real and pay attention. Just because Obama is now in office, I won't support bush's policies no matter who pushes them. You are only opposed to Obama because he is not a republican. You love his policies to keep the middle class falling apart.

I don't believe you oppose big government. If you did, you would not be supporting people like bush who favor much much larger government. Look at how much it grew during his time in office. You want it to grow, just differently than I do. You want a gigantic military, The one we have which is 17 times larger than every one else, is not near large enough. I prefer a government that invests in its people and enables the pursuit of happiness. You prefer war, death destruction. I prefer growth, peace, happiness. You prefer guns, I prefer butter.

Tell that to our enemmies, until then "speak softly and carry a big stick."

You don't know what I support, you're just an assuming socialist because I'm a conservative. In other words, a bigot.

THE USA IS A CONSERVATIVE NATION WITH NO SOCIALISM IN SIGHT BUT A FORM OF CONSERVATIVE NATIONAL SOCIALISM THAT'S TRYING IN VAIN TO SOLVE THE NEWLY RISING SOCIAL CONTRADICTIONS USING THE OLD THINKING FROM THE PAST.

ALL THE SOLUTIONS APPLIED IN AMERICA FOR THE LAST 40 YEARS ARE A GROSS FAILURE
