    Look he also went to a university which is tax payer supported as well, used public transport, all kinds of things. If he had been caught before hand he wouldnt have been receiving these benefits but to damn the whole system because it gave support to an unknown terrorist is silly.

    You didn't really answer my question, you could have said yes or no.

    I don't see how there is any correlation between the receiving of welfare benefits, and the perpetrators becoming terrorists. If they meet requirements then they rightfully received those benefits. The article itself only mention that they received welfare in the beginning of the article then goes on to list the past of the brothers and offers no perspective as to how welfare inspired or caused them to become terrorists. Could you perhaps explain it to me?

    Also saying that progressives support terrorism simply because a terrorist received welfare at a few points in his life is an incredibly ignorant statement.

    Rich people tend to have reasons not to do crap like this, Bin Laden being the exception

    So suddenly a backround check for Welfare will stop terrorism...

    But a back round check for firearms won't stop mass killers...

    Ah **** it.
    The background check is to ensure that they meet the income requirements right?

    I'm pretty sure welfare has existed through both conservative and liberal administrations.

    So was 9/11 a reflection of conservative terrorism?

    The crap some of you people come up with is astounding.

    That seems to be the subject of debate.

It would not provide a legal basis for removing someone or their family from these benefits, in fact it may even hinder an investigation if the suspect were told by the state you'd no longer be receiving benefits because they were added to the TIDE list.

    That's pretty stupid, that's like saying conservatives support guns that killed the MIT cop therefore conservatives support terrorism. Gimme a break.
