First of all, "attacking our own elected government" is a national pastime, so I'm not exactly sure what your point is there. And one of our cherished rights, and in fact an obligation of a citizen, is to highlight wrongdoing by that elected government. So you must be making some other point. And I've certainly seen no attack on the people who fight on our behalf, except for very limited 'attacks' on policy decisions by those at the very top. That's as American as apple pie. If not, then I sure hope we have a enforced policy on here that attacks on the CIC are out of bounds!
Finally, we don't necessarily "believe" "the terrorists." What did a "terrorist" say that we "believe" that we should not? I will say I don't believe (without support) a lot of what the CIA says because they have a history of lying, which is of course a downside to lying. Even when you're telling the truth, your word means little...
I could say they are much more amused by the fact they've kept us in a war on terror for over 13 years costing us billions of dollars while not stopping the ideology that's been spread all over but I can't really speak for our enemies amusement factor as much as you seem to be able to. Oh wait 'my' enemy not 'ours' because they are not yours as well?
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
