that after WTC I, the US was not attacked again until 9/11? Who was keeping us safe then? And did they really expect to be hit every other day from these people? I just can't believe how gullible the public is and how they fall for such horseshit!

edit to post a really good comment about this from a fellow DUer:

1. Interesting
If we had done nothing... nothing after Beirut, after the Cole, after the embassy bombings, after the WTC bombing... if we took proactive collective security measures that increased the security of all humans, we would be much safer, perhaps 3000 times safer then we currently are.

2. Ah but they argue the old dead horse argument
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 01:42 PM by DearAbby
9/11 WAS CLINTONS FAULT!


and Clinton caused the stock market to crash in '29

Clinton was the scout for Gen. Armstrong at the Little Big Horn.

Clinton advised Pilate, during the trial of Jesus Christ.

on and on they beat that dead horse.

3. The media continually play us for fools at their own
peril. I have been emailing CNN and MSNBC constantly when someone there tells us lies. And they can stop telling me who to vote for.

4. U.S. embassies are U.S. sovereign soil.
So we actually were attacked in the time frame you gave. These media fools are forgetting the Anthrax attacks and the several attacks on our close allies. Also, what about the D.C. sniper attacks?

6. and the DC sniper, and the various "terra" alerts, which represent
threats, real or imagined, which indicate we're not safe, just lucky (allegedly)

7. They ( the media pundits) are experts only on
navel lint. Punditry, as profession, should be ridiculed out of existence.

8. "Kept us safe"! (spit) Huh! Like keeping Grandma safe from getting
mugged, while simultaneously poisoning her food!
