LOL, what?? You must realize that teenagers are being recruited at a rapid rate, even younger than that. And women? You have noted the number of suicide bombers that have been women, yes? As far as old men, how old is old? You can be any age to be a terrorist, remember that man who shot up the Holocaust Museum? He was 89, he just died.

I am glad to see hes finally realized he cant keep blaming others.
Hahaha no doubt. But why such praise for him? He said exactly what he should be saying. Let's not get all giddy and act like schoolgirls because he, for once, is accepting the heat.

I know teenagers are being recruited. I'm not talking about terrorist activities in the Middle East. I'm talking about them HERE. I don't recall any female suicide bomber that made it on to U.S. soil.

He almost got 300 people killed. If he truly accepted responsibility he'd resign.

Well of course you are right. Had Obama simply sat at his desk and reviewed the passenger list of all incoming flights, compared those names with those in the NCTC data base, then once discovering Abdulmatallab had boarded a flight in Nigeria, gotten into Air Force One, stripped the weapon off of one of his security detail and marched into the airport placing Mr. Abdulmatallab in custody none of this would have happened.

If you think that about Obama .... what do you feel about Bush?

Bush received a Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB) from CIA Director George Tenet on August 6, 2001 - just 4 weeks before 9/11.

Read it for yourself:

August 6 PDB Page 1

August 6 PDB Page 2

More than 3,000 people WERE killed on 9/11.

Should Bush have resigned?

Perhaps it was because they caught wind of of the mean spirited right-wing drivel you spout on the internet and decided to have a bit of fun.

Nice status by the way, wishing death on another human being. How very "Christian" of you.

Does it really matter? It can only happen w/time. Why be so lax about it? Do you want that type of terrorism here?

Seemed convincing, although i am sure he knows what he is doing. Funny that he now accepts the blame.

Because he keeps saying it was a system problem from the last administration. So .."I inherited" this is still out there....AGAIN!


Because he says we're at war, but does not treat captured foes as warriors. He treats them as American citizens.


Need I go on??
