Put a bit more simply, you're being a raging, flaming, hypocrite in this post by quoting Henry. You only care ab out Liberty when it applies to things you care about, otherwise you'll happily lose liberty or see other people lose liberty without even thinking of death. Which in and of itself isn't a BAD thing...if you didn't just throw PH in his face.
Do you consider terrorist attacks only those that actually take place in the United States when you're saying this? Because if you do, we went 8 years after the 1993 World Trade Center Bombings before we had another terrorist attack within our borders. Was THAT because of increased security? Or just coincidence then, but absolute truth that it is now?
Wait, are you going to bring up the Khobar Towers, or the U.S.S. Cole, or the Embassies? You can do that, but that opens up terrorist attacks outside the United States in which we HAVE suffered those in the past 7 years.
So....which is it MrVicchio? Attacks within our borders, in which case the 8 years during Clinton's term must've just been "Coincidence" but during Bush's has to have been "Security"? Or is it all terrorist attacks, in which case we have had numerous attacks?
