    Having an open mind allows one to chose what they read. I lived Bush's presidency so I really don't need his opinion of how he handled it.

    What if Clinton pressed hard for Saddam to disarm... instead of letting the UN run the show and create a monumental ode de corruption known as The Oil For Food Program. The UN has blood on its hands.

    Bush did the right thing under the circumstances, as all our allies and even the Democrats sang the song of Saddam having WMD. He used them after all, and he had a hatred for America that is known to all except the deaf, dumb and blind.

    .
    Saddam was disarmed when we invaded. All his WMDs had been destroyed. Looks like Clinton really did the job after all. Bush just didn't get the memo.

The knowledge is not common but is widely available to people who know where to look. Ultimately this is a question of wherewithal and execution, both of which Al Qaeda has demonstrably shown throughout this period. These are not new threats.

    What is new in this article, then? The State Department cables released by WikiLeaks document the efforts by our diplomats to coordinate ongoing efforts to identify and foil these plots. Without WikiLeaks there is no story.

    Again, together, now, thank you, WikiLeaks.
    Didn't wikileaks release the emails from East Anglia University and Penn State University that discredited Global Warming?

    Thank you wikileaks.

    No matter how mistakenly, it is good to see you showing some appreciation for the WikiLeaks organization.

    I'm glad people like you who promote such barbaric solutions do not have the support to packpeddle our country away from the human rights we worked so hard to implement.


    Even if we executed every illegal immigrant, it would not deter a determined foe like that of Al-Queda from penetrating our borders.

    Who's wanting to execute every illegal immigrant? And Al Qaeda crossing the border is called "target practice".
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Since al qaeda is just a list of names (Arab definition), all I can picture is a piece of paper with spindly legs and arms pole vaulting over the fence.

    You're welcome. You shouldn't worry about Al Qaeda. You shouldn't worry about illegal aliens. You should worry about American citizens who see you as a mortal threat.

    I don't anymore than I worry about thieves stealing my money from the bank. There are people whose job is protect the money in the bank and people whose job is to protect our country from terrorists like AQ. I let them do the worrying.

    I live in arizona and I don't worry. Most illegals are fine people looking for jobs and don't want any trouble. Its the drug runners and coyotes you have to avoid if you live near the border.

    Like who? There are crackpots in every society. Luckily there are few extremists in the US willing to kill other americans who don't share their ideals.
