Of course, it's true that the further away from the battlefield you are the more desensitized you become. So...
    So...............stop supporting militant Islamic groups, only to choose to fight them latter. The drone strikes are killing "alleged" enemies, and huge numbers of civilians by comparison, they are unethical by most standards and illegal by many!

    Your support of the misguided adventure in Iraq has clouded your judgement. Just as Bush's lust for war with Iraq clouded his judgement when viewing the tell tale warnings of AQ's imminent attack prior to 9/11.

    A link to hearsay posted on one of the most vile Progressive Websites on the internet? Dang, talk about misrepresentation of facts. Ridiculous.
    Mickey Herskowitz TAPED this interview. Why does it matter who it is that posted the story.

    That's hilarious!!!! Your back must be aching bending into a pretzel to defend Bush's criminal activity. Puts you squarely into blame with him. You should try to find the press conference and listen to your right wing buddy's do a hatchet job on that criminal/Cheney program. Take a Valium first.

    Yes, in that link, he discusses the need to be Commander in Chief, not just president. One way or another, come hell or high water, either one, the Bush administration would have its war with Iraq, had 9/11 attacks never happened.

    Thats kinda the hypocrisy thing.
    Oh, we are going that route. Then Bush murdered well over 100,000 Iraqi civilians in his pointless invasion that actually made us less safe. You can't win, only change the subject.

    He sure lied about it in the campaign though. He said he would avoid "foreign entanglements" many many times while on the stump.

    They were dead by their own hands, many shot themselves before the fire. You can't fix stupid.

    Yes, so is treating the brave sacrifice that they made to protect our nation as nothing more than being thrown to their deaths by the President is offensive. You (inc the Democrats) use their deaths for political gain, and that, is truly sickening.
    Whose freedom were they defending? Certainly not ours. They died for nothing and that is truly sickening and 100% the fault of the Commander in Chief.
