The Republican-controlled Congress deserves some of the credit (though their fiscal discipline started to wane as early as 1998). But while Clinton was president, congressional Republicans were trying to cut spending and balance the budget. When Bush took over, they voted for deficits and government growth."

    Gun violence ???

    But organized criminal gangs that cause citizens to live in fear in their own neighborhoods is terrorism.

    I have a problem when federal government gets involved with state or local issues.

    Since 50 % of all gang bangers in America are illegal aliens, that does make it a federal issue. Just think if the federal government would actually enforce the immigration laws that are already on the books, gang violence would be cut in half. Then all you have left to deal with is Chicago and the Crips and Bloods.

    The most violent gang in America is an illegal alien gang MS, there weapon of choice is the machete. The largest illegal alien gang in America is "18th Street" gang. Both MS and 18th Street were born on the streets of Los Angeles and are now found coast to coast.

    Interesting that Obama's comprehensive immigration would award all illegal alien gang bangers amnesty unless they have been convicted of murder. If the gang banger committed burglaries, robberies, GTA, human smuggling, dog rape, drug dealing, etc. they are scott free.

    Latino gangs fight over a zip code while black gangs are out to make money from drug dealing and robberies.
    Most Latino gang bangers hold down jobs, usually in construction, gardening, and in restaurants.

    The right constantly tries to move the goalposts as far as terrorist attacks are concerned. As far as they care, all terrorism is carried out by Al Qaeda or its alleged operatives. By their normal standards, Timothy McVeigh wouldn't count as a terrorist.

    Show me where he said this.

    Regarding "international terminals" ports of entry is where you will find those who have no passport or visa. Like Snowden was basically trapped in Moscow's international terminal. There's actually foreigners who are living in international terminals all over the world who have no country to go too. When your in limbo, that where you end up.

    Remember the Tom Hanks movie "The Terminal" ?

    >" The Terminal is a 2004 American comedy-drama film directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It is about a man who becomes trapped in a New York City airport terminal when he is denied entry into the United States and at the same time cannot return to his native country due to a revolution. The film is partially inspired by the 17-year-stay of Mehran Karimi Nasseri in the Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Terminal I, Paris, France from 1988 to 2006..."<

    With this:

    Is the Obama administration doing a good job in protecting us from terrorism?-546450-edward-snowden-sheremetyevo-airport-jpg

    You just showed you are either grasping for straws or you didn't bother to read what I wrote. Citing the international arrival location and arguing it's the same as the ticket counter that anyone can go up to have the same legal jurisdiction is insane.

    Both Snowden and Nasseri were in the transit areas of the arrival sections. Not the ticket counters.

    LOL.....Bin Laden attacked the US while your boy was sleeping on the job trying to figure out what he was supposed to be doing. You just simply cannot stomach the idea that the worst attack on US soil in the history of this country occurred on his watch and he left it to the next guy to get the job done that he couldn't accomplish. Face the facts.

    Also, the story that Sudan offered bin Laden to Clinton is a bald-faced lie: Hannity repeated lie that Sudan offered bin Laden to Clinton; Lanny Davis to Hannity: "That's a lie" | Research | Media Matters for America

    Reagan created bin Laden by selling arms to the men who became al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

    Bush Sr. did nothing about it.

    Clinton tried to get him, and failed, but he did try. And while he was trying, the right-wingers accused him of trying to distract people from the investigation of his personal life. The right-wingers didn't care about protecting this nation from bin Laden then.

    Bush Jr. was warned about him in August 2001. He ignored the memo because he was on vacation. Then he promised he would get bin Laden, "dead or alive," and had him surrounded in December 2001, and let him get away, because he was focused on his insane vendetta against Saddam Hussein.

    Obama promised to get bin Laden. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. He even approved the plan while... wait for it... he was on vacation.

    Democratic Presidents go on vacation and attack al-Qaeda. Republican Presidents go on vacation and ignore them.

    Ticket counter, arrival area ? What about the departure area ?
    What does this have to do with the "international terminal" ? They all are with in the boundaries of the terminal.
    An "international terminal" is a sovereign country's official port of entry.
    El Al is located at the LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal. It's one building that serves most international flights. It's where customs, immigration, agriculture, foreign exchange, and TSA feel your junk are located.
    It's known as the "Gate Way to the Capital of the Third World." aka Los Angeles.

    Now the photos you posted don't look like LAX. The floors are shiny, no graffiti, no trash or Harikrishna people wearing orange dresses are visible. Defiantly so not L.A.

    Re: 2002 attack at the El Al ticket counter located with in the LAX international terminal, there was some controversy if it was a terrorist attack or not. The State Department, Defense Department, Dept. of Justice all have different definitions for a terrorist attack. Local law enforcement called it a hate crime. Only the FBI under the DOJ called it a terrorist attack even though there were found no connections between Hesham Mohamed Hadayet and any known terrorist organizations. But the FBI said the motive was political so it meets the DOJ definition of being a terrorist attack. But what if Hesham Mohamed Hadayet just didn't like Jews or Israel ? Then it's just a hate crime.

    Navy, if these are the kind of Fun With Semantics games you feel the need to play in order to whitewash other attacks from the Bush era, you've already lost the argument. Badly.

    I voted no because I can't say he's doing a good job. Just the flagrant BS of classifying the Ft. Hood shooting as "workplace violence" on it's own would prompt me for a "no".
    “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.
