Terrorist Watch: 23 Plots Foiled Since 9/11

With Fort Hood and the panty bomber, that makes 25.

Obama is going to come out and explain how delusional the intel was. I have a feeling it's going to "shock" them or at least that's the word of what the report is suppose to espouse.

We were not a country at war before 9/11, its really that simple.

We should have been. They declared war on us way before that.

My goodness.

Does anyone on this thread remember Kkhobar Towers?

The terrorist attack on US soldiers at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia was the precursor to 9/11. Bill Clinton and Al Gore prevented CIA and FBI officers from doing anything that would harm our relationship with the Saudis. As a result, we were shut out of the very region where we needed to be heavily involved in intelligence gathering.

This is not partisan hackery. This is the truth. So true, in fact, that the FBI director appealed to George W. Bush Sr. (no longer in office) to appeal to the Clinton Administration to let our folks in to do the intelligence gathering that was obviously needed. When the FBI Director has to look outside to a previous President to do what the current President should be doing, there are massive problems.

Look it up. It's real, and it's there for all to see.

It happened under GWB, but the groundwork was laid by Bill Clinton and Al Gore.

ROFL, he is going to hold everyone accountable for the failed terrorist attack, EXCEPT HIMSELF. He is busy looking for someone to blame, and it won't be Louis Caldera, because 0bama already fired him.

They are not terrorist attacks any more, and they are not being thwarted so much any more either. That Christmas jet bombing was only a hair's breath from murdering 300-400 people.

On Jan 2, 2010:

Mr. Obama said he was well aware that our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred.
