Osama Bin Laden...
I just thought everyone would like to be reminded of one of the men behind the 9-11 terror attacks. The Bush administration seems to have forgotten about him.
The man who has supposedly been in charge of capturing or killing Osama Bin Laden is, of course, the former business partner of Osama's older brother. You remembered that, right?
Salim Bin Laden's former business partner has yet to catch Osama. Instead, he has gotten us into a stupid war with no end in sight, that has nothing to do with making America safer. Quite the contrary, in fact.
The resources diverted from the National Guard and FEMA will prove to be directly responsible for the government inability to peform its primary duties...I think this is important, folks, and I am outting it in front of you repeatedly.
...The purpose of Federal government is Not...to protect rich people!
This is why we have a governement:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
George W. Bush has failed America!
Juan Cole says it best:
Four years after September 11, al-Qaeda's leadership should have been behind bars or dead.
Four years after September 11, Afghanistan should have been stabilized.
Four years after September 11, the government should have been ready to save lives in an urban disaster
...In four years, Roosevelt and allies defeated Nazi Germany and imperial Japan.
In four years, Bush hasn't managed even to corner Bin Laden and a few hundred scruffy terrorists; or to extract himself from the deserts of Iraq; or to put the government's finances in good order so that it can deal with crises like Katrina.
Juan Cole is very very smart and thorough. This is a long read. It is also very very accurate:
Kevin Drum points out a few discrepancies from Conservative blogger, Instapundit, concerning FEMA.
With all the stuff Instahack gets wrong or cleverly leaves out, I have to wonder how he has time to do his job at the University of Tennessee? Instpundit is a State employee, you know.
