    Outside of Kurdish controlled areas, it wasn't operating in Iraq until 2004. In fact, Saddam was hostile to the group:

    well, he's no "liberal" but I imagine you are right.....

    However the case they make kind of suggests Obama is one of the fat kids at the back of the room voting "present" until hew knows where his bread is buttered.

    Now which is more realistic considering his voting record?

    What did you want the FBI to do on a hunch? Round up all of his acquaintances and throw them in prison?


    Isn't the Obama administration's policy on illegal immigrants is "amnesty"?

    Wow, now they're suggesting Bush was a failure because he didn't do what they themselves have fought, kicked and screamed about not to do......

    How the **** to people get that confused without substances?

    There was one of those political bias studies done a few years ago, the kind that tries to show the real differences between the "liberal" and "conservative" minds. I found this one interesting because it stated that "liberals" have the ability to maintain two contradictory beliefs at the same time. While the discussion boards I frequented then had liberals trumpeting the findings as proof of the complexity of liberal thought I couldn't help but see the hilarious irony of them trumpeting a study that essentially called liberals hypocrites.

    But yeah, iguanaman essentially demands that the Bush administration act contrary to the liberal line on immigration, and contrary to the liberal line of FISA courts in order to stop the 9/11 attack based on the hunch of an FBI agent. It's like in iguanaman's mind the show 24 is a documentary.

    You have been hoodwinked.

    There are NO liberals in the US. Maybe six.

    Liberal has been hijacked by socialists to disguise what it is they really are. It started in the 20's, there is a post somewhere in here of Ronald Reagan making that case....

    What you have in the US are convenient socialist-populists [Hollywood stars still want their SUV's] with the rest of the country divided into varying degrees of conservative.

    If you change the word "liberal" to "socialist" it is actually a quote from Winston Churchill.

    It is classic, by the way, for the socialist/communist to argue cyclically causing a great deal of Irony. But, but stretching and actually reversing the very meanings of words, yes, any socialist can demand of their opponents that which they say they oppose.

    The truth is, there is no progress in progressive. We have had these ideas in Canada, exactly as prescribed by the wonders of Obamaland around sine the 1910's, wqhen the first official socialist-communist party was formed - the "Cooperative Commonwealth Federation", who stood for higher minimum wage ....and, not really mentioned, the nationalization of all non-farm land!

    There is no Affordable in the ACA, there is no Progress in progressive and no "liberal" as in tolerant, accepting and willing to compromise anywhere in the US

    Bush signed the agreement that got us out of Iraq. Obama tried to get it extended but Maliki would not.

    Hunch?
    On August 16, 2001, Moussaoui was arrested in Minnesota by the FBI and charged with an immigration violation. He aroused suspicion over his flight training courses that he took in Eagan, Minnesota.

    They were a terrorist organization whose goal was the overthrow of Saddam. What they became as a result of our going into Iraq is a much, much stronger terrorist organization that is a threat to us. So yeah, it makes a difference.
