Yes, that is exactly what we think.

I read from all sorts of places, not just those. What sources do you prefer?

Fox and CNN. I read the Wash. Post, but I am always skeptical.

From what I understand, Al Qaeda has pretty much left Afganistan, but the Taliban is still there, and they were the ones who let Al Qaeda set up training bases. I guess our leaders are afraid the Taliban would do it again if they returned to power.

To be honest, I am not totally in favor of the war in Afganistan, but I think Bush, and now Obama, know more about it than I do, and I would not try to second guess what they have done and probably will do in the future.

My first priority is to keep America safe. I can't think of a second priority.

Me - CNN, MSNBC, BBC, al-Jazeera, plus some local stuff, but I don't trust FOX. I agree the Taliban is very open to the influence by, and cooperation with Al Qaeda.
My first priority is my family. Then America.

People need to learn history. Muslims have always wanted to take over the world and force everyone to either convert to Islam or face infidel taxes - or be killed. The Koran tells Muslims that they can hide their true intentions by lying to infidels.

We should kindly and compassionately deport ALL Muslims from America and end all Muslim in migration to our country. This should be done without any violence towards them. I don't want them dead, I just want them to live in their own land were they can't blow me up for not stoning my sister to death if she gets raped. If we don't do this our country will fall into rule by Sharia law just like Medieval Spain did.
