    Nope, but I think the best way to protect us from the terrorists is to stop pissing the terrorists off and he's not done that. So long as we keep sticking our nose into the affairs of the Middle East, we'll be a target for terrorists.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You can see the No True Scotsman coming a mile away, but what the hell, I'll take the bait.

    The anthrax attacks happened two days later. After 9/11. Wanna try again?

    Actually 52 % of the voters were either uninformed or just misinformed. Some just believe what they are told on MSNBC or get their news from the Comedy Channel. Some after four years of being lied to by Obama and his White House continued to believe the lies.

    While the other 48 % didn't buy Janet (Big Siss) Napolitano's explanation for the Obama administration that "everything worked out as planned." Even though an Al Qaeda terrorist who was on the watch list was allowed to board the plane. Was able to light the fuse but the only reason the plane didn't blow up was because the kicker charge failed to set off the main charge.

    48 % of us didn't buy that the Fort Hood terrorist attack was just "violence in the work place" when the shooter is yelling "Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar!" and was also exchanging e-mails with Al Qaeda in Yemen.

    48 % of us didn't buy Obama's lies that Al Qaeda was "on the run and is being decimated" and then blames the Al Qaeda attack on the consulate in Benghazi on a You Tube video because we are smarter and know that demonstrators don't bring heavy anti aircraft machine guns and mortars to a demonstration that over a You Tube video.

    Zero, except for the attacks that did happen. Hint: zero is wrong.

    We should not let fear of terrorists affect our foreign policy.

The actual nuts and bolts of detection and prevention is mostly handled by career civil servants who do better than we give them credit for. Much like 9/11, where when looking back at it the evidence of the attack is clear, but when looking forward before 9/11, not so clear, detecting and preventing attacks is an incredibly difficult job. If there is one area we should not be playing petty partisan politics, it is something like this.

    President G.W. Bush looked at it the same way. Bush didn't spend eight years blaming Clinton's failed terrorist policies for 9/11.

    Any Bill, Dick or Janet could have made the mistake of declaring that Al Qaeda wasn't a national security issue but a law enforcement issue.

    Janet Reno's "wall" sure didn't help matters either.
