    Must be off. Thanks for the exchange.
    Be careful out there, its a dangerous world.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    This posting is so full of ****, it could fertilizer an acre of crops.

    I remember Bill Clinton being very defensive right after 9/11 about this issue-and heres a clue as to why.

    Liberals telling us what they "really" think is always fascinating, isn't it?

    This is why they are best as repeating scripts from others and attacking conservatives. You dont want to hear what they come up with.

    Whats funny is in the context of this thread topic-the criticism of Clinton was always that he could have done something but did not.
    Clinton loudly argued against this-not wanting his legacy tarnished-but now we find out (in his own words!) that the criticism was dead on correct.

    I seriously doubt it.

    Because of the over down sizing of our military during the Clinton administration, there weren't enough aircraft to protect the CONUS air space.

    It's the Air National Guard who's respobsiable for the CONUS air defense not the Air Force.

    And when Air Force aircraft were scrambbled to intercept one of the hijacked aircraft, it was unarmed.

    On 9-11-01 the state of California had one F-16 ANG squdron to defend the entire state of California and that squdron is based in northern California. The ANG couldn't even put up a CAP (combat air patrol) over Los Angeles or San Diego or over any place over SoCal.

    The rest of the country had the same problems.

    So how did the Bush administration respond with Clinton's military ?

    In California, President Bush ordered the 3rd MAW based at MCAS Marimar (near San Diego) to provide a CAP over SoCal. Now that's not the job of the Marine Corps, Marine combat aircraft main mission is supporting the Marine rifleman, not doing Air Force or ANG stuff. But they were able to put a CAP over SoCal.

    Now there was an aircraft carrier tied up to the North Island NAS in San Diego which Bush ordered to put to sea. The carrier was able to get underway and was at sea by sun down. (Could you see any of our carriers tied up in port today being able to put to sea under Obama's PC Navy ? ) But the carriers Air Wing isn't based with in 500 miles of San Diego, they are based in northern Nevada and northern California. So they had to fly 600 miles to the carrier that was off the SoCal coast.

    But with in 48 hours after the second plane hit the WTC, the Navy had it's FA-18's in the air providing a CAP over California.

    What about all of those Air Force (not ANG) F-15's and F-16's we use to see flying over California before the Clinton administration ? Well most of those squdrons were deactivated, remember the liberals wanted a "peace devedend" after the Cold War. And all of those Air Force bases that had fighters were deactived, closed under BRAC during the Clinton administration. The same was true all over America including in the north east.

    President Bush and his administration gets an "A" for it's response to 9-11.

    I'm most amazed at how they cling to the idiotic idea that shooting down the high-jacked aircraft was an option. Worse than that, they actually believe it was a solution.

    And then without batting an eye they will tell you 9/11 was Bush's fault. Implying he knew exactly what was going to happen and how-and his ineptitude allowed it to happen. Clinton good. Bush bad.

    Its an intellectually lazy solution that allows them to continue living the lie. Its not about the truth or reality, its about what feels good.
