    And now GM is facing federal investigations and Al Qaeda remains strong.

    But it served its purpose. 'You can fool some of the people all of the time', and that's often all that's necessary to gain power.

    That we've done the things we condemn others for.

    Can you be more specific?

    Answering your question is not backing off. Read the thread and your question will be answered. You can start with the post of mine you originally quoted.

    Re: Polls-Americans are sick of the war on terror

    After the September 11 attacks, commercial airline pilots were allowed to carry guns if they completed a federal-safety program. No longer would unarmed pilots be defenseless as remorseless hijackers seized control of aircraft and rammed them into buildings.

    Now President Obama is quietly ending the federal firearms program, risking public safety on airlines in the name of an anti-gun ideology.
    The Obama administration this past week diverted some $2 million from the pilot training program to hire more supervisory staff, who will engage in field inspections of pilots.

    This looks like completely unnecessary harassment of the pilots. The 12,000 Federal Flight Deck Officers, the pilots who have been approved to carry guns, are reported to have the best behavior of any federal law enforcement agency. There are no cases where any of them has improperly brandished or used a gun. There are just a few cases where officers have improperly used their IDs.
