Thanks for playing 'Wingnut Non-Sequiturs!'

I don't care how many times you lie about it - 9/11 had exactly fuck-all to do with Iraq.

As for "fighting over there", well I haven't heard of any attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11, no thanks to Democrats. So the strategy seems to be working OK for now.

I'm sure 'ol Johnny boy, just like Komander Kerry and the Klintons would love to haul these and other terrorists into court, like some drunk driver or shoplifter.

That kind of thinking unfortunately lead to 9/11.


Psst! Ned! The folks behind 9/11 (none of whom were Iraqi, by the way), were already in the US prior to the attack. So, like it or not, domestic law enforcement and intelligence is always gonna be, you know, important to thwarting such plots. Yeah, it would've been a real shame had a couple of those guys been hauled off to jail prior to hijacking those planes, douche.

Perhaps if the administration had given them the resources they needed, instead of ignoring intelligence that state OBL was looking to launch a major strike stateside, things might have turned out differently. It was THAT kind of willful ignorance that lead to 9/11, which, sad as it is to point out yet again, happened on your boy's watch.

Tell that to Ike, who ordered in the paratroopers from the U.S. Army 101st, after ordering the Arkansas National Guard to stand down, all during the desegregation of Little Rock Center High.

Exactly. More "Balkan blowback" courtesy of Bubba. Remember, this is the second round of Muslim terror courtesy of "immigrants" from this part of the world now living in the U.S. Don't forget the Salt Lake City mall shooter.

Good job, Ned, but if I may make some constructive criticism:

Just yesterday on this same thread, you claimed you "haven't heard of any attacks on U.S. soil since 9/11" - and now you're claiming the Salt Lake City mall shooter to be a "Muslim terror" attack.

Remember always to work from the current revision of the script, and you'll do fine.

Hot fun in the summer time in Londonistan!

LONDON - Police closed a major road in central London on Friday because of a suspicious vehicle, hours after defusing a car laden with explosives.

A police spokesman said there was no immediate information about the vehicle on Park Lane, on the eastern edge of Hyde Park. He said there was nothing immediately to suggest it was linked to the earlier incident.

Earlier Friday, police said they thwarted an apparent terror attack near Piccadilly Circus, after finding a car loaded with gas cylinders, nails and a detonator after an ambulance crew reported seeing smoke coming from the vehicle

Good job. They're actually working to thwart real, live attacks on their own soil.

How do you feel about us focusing on the same concept?

Besides securing the borders, I think we are. We have a pretty good track record since 9/11, right?

True, and now that I think about it, there hasn't been a single alien invasion since Bush took office, either, so I guess he's secured our outer solar system, as well.

He should be crowned Emperor of Safety!

I prefer Security Grand Poobah.

He seems more like a poobah to me. Can't put my finger on it.

Lisa: That's specious reasoning, Dad.
Homer: Thank you, dear.
Lisa: By your logic I could claim that this rock keeps tigers away.
Homer: Oh, how does it work?
Lisa: It doesn't work.
Homer: Uh-huh.
Lisa: It's just a stupid rock.
Homer: Uh-huh.
Lisa: But I don't see any tigers around, do you?
Homer: Lisa, I want to buy your rock.
