Foreign and Domestic
Once and for all, the light of truth has finally been shone on
9/11, Iraq and the War on Islamic Terror. And it only took Khalid Sheik
Mohammed confessing to being the Al Qaeda mastermind behind it all, as
opposed to, say, crazy things like the American media actually doing its
job or Democrats supporting the president during wartime. Here is a
partial list of crimes, both committed and planned, to which that evil
The 9/11 attacks
The 1993 World
Trade Center attack
The attempted shoe
bombing of a trans-Atlantic flight by Richard Reid
Bombings in Bali,
Indonesia in 2002
assassination of Pakistani President Musharraf
Bombing the Empire
Bombing the Sears
Crashing a plane
into London Heathrow airport
former President Carter
former President Clinton
Pope John Paul II
The sheer scope of the above list should make clear once and for
all, even to the most ardent Bush-hating liberal, just how complete
would be the destruction Al Qaeda intends to rain down on America and
civilization itself if given the chance. And that list is by no means
complete, given that the Pentagon redacted portions of his testimony
transcript, presumably because they pertain to ongoing Al Qaeda
operations, and to release them would threaten national security. The
simple fact is that we are at war with an enemy unlike we have ever
faced before, an enemy totally committed to our utter annihilation. We
didn't go looking for this. It came to us. But here it is, whether you
like it or not - and victory is the only option.
Furthermore, we now know that the 1993 World Trade Center attack
bomb-maker, Abdul Rahman Yasin, was an Al Qaeda member. Yasin fled to
Iraq after the attack, where he lived for a decade on Saddam Hussein's
payroll and under his protection. It is extremely improbable, if not
flat-out impossible, that Saddam didn't assist, however informally, the
9/11 attacks. If nothing else, he gave Al Qaeda time, money and
sanctuary so as to plot and plan. This directly connects Iraq and Saddam
to both Al Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks. For good measure, add in that
Saddam tried to assassinate former President Bush and the emir of
Kuwait, thus mirroring an Al Qaeda tactic.
The idea that Iraq was unrelated to 9/11 can now be officially
relegated to the trash can where it always belonged. Saddam and Al Qaeda
were regular bosom buddies in hating and attacking America, and both
rightly deserved to be taken down. Thankfully, President Bush saw this
and did what had to be done, whether it was popular or not. His mistake
was to not obtain an official declaration of war, to mobilize the
country behind the effort like during World War II and, in so doing, put
this in a properly serious context. That failure is, in large part, why
support for the Iraq effort is waning today.
By the way, KSM is being held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He would be
one of the terrorists who'd directly benefit from liberals' attempts to
close down Gitmo and get these murderous monsters access to U.S. courts,
if not outright released. Not to mention that if they had their way on
limiting interrogation tactics, he'd likely never have said a word and
we'd still be in the dark on all this. Is this a stark enough
demonstration of just how completely wrong and insanely dangerous the
left in this country is?
That is the true scandal in all of this, which will go totally
unreported by the biased mainstream media – that the Democratic Party
and the left in America has been doing everything in its power to aid,
comfort and assist the enemy. How in the world can the Democrats'
insistence on retreat, defeat and surrender in Iraq not be seen for
anything but the blatant treason it is? Even with the media trying to
bury the Al Qaeda/Iraq connection, the Democratic Party and its
credibility should be all but left for dead after this – and even more
so the presidential candidacy of one who fancies herself a former
co-president, but whose administration did jack-diddly-squat for eight
years in pursuing the 1993 WTC perpetrators or preventing any other
terrorist attacks, culminating in the slaughter of 3,000 innocent souls
The only alternative explanation for playing this perfectly into
the enemy's hands is that they're well-meaning but colossally stupid.
And I don't think anyone can be that dumb. Either way, be they traitors
or morons (or both), they are utterly unfit to be in power.
All this means the enemy is not just Al Qaeda or the likes of
Saddam, but liberals and Democrats in America. You may think that too
strong a statement, but it's what the facts ineluctably show. Al Qaeda
means to visit total and complete destruction upon us, and the left is
energetically enabling them in every way possible. That makes them an
equally grave threat. And when the price of being in error is massive
bloodshed, trusting their loyalty and their brainpower is a chance we
cannot afford to take.
Perhaps we should keep this in mind when we select our next
president, and ensure that he is as committed to protecting this country
as the current one is, from enemies both foreign and domestic.
