Leadership: If the foiled airline bomb plot sounded familiar, it should. In 1995, al-Qaida planned the same thing as the Clinton administration slept. Democrats hope to press the snooze button again in November.
The 1995 plot was uncovered when Ramzi Yousef, subsequently convicted for the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, hastily fled a burning Manila apartment, leaving behind bomb materials and a laptop with disks containing plans for something called Project Bojinka the Arabic word for "loud explosion."
The plot was to blow up 11 American jetliners over the Pacific Ocean, then crash a plane into CIA headquarters a mission to be carried out by a Pakistani pilot who had trained at flight schools in North Carolina, Texas and New York. Sound familiar?
One would have thought that after al-Qaida had tried to blow up the WTC in 1993 and was discovered to be plotting to blow up airliners and fly them into buildings, the Clinton administration would have connected the dots and taken action. But it didn't...

And continue to fail us.
Let see, Kobar Towers. 1st WTC attack, The 2 Embassy Bombings, Black Hawk down, the USS Cole.
In the years prior to 09-11.
Hmm kind of conducevily proves which party is willing to protect us and which one wants us to Surrender Now.
Conclusively, too, I bet. ;)
I wouldn't trust the 'Rats to "defend" my backyard, let alone the country.

"It is a party that has appeased terrorists and dictators for decades, which has opposed every terror-fighting tool...and whose entire strategy in the war on terror is: "Bush sucks."
That says it all.
What I should have said is: "Democrats will fail us again if given the chance."
It is time to push them out of the way. Dems are going to get us killed! Iran is just waiting for them to come to power, Dems put the mullahs in power. Carter is the original idiot!
Not only did their past policies help create this mess, their current approach is to not go after terrorists because it will only create more of them.
The astonishing thing is that a fair percentage of the American people agree with that utterly ridiculous approach.
Thanks for posting this excellent editorial.
If you are antigun, you are anti everything I stand for. That pretty much sums up the direction of the dem party.
Whew - that is about the most hard-hitting editorial you'll ever see from a mainstream publication.
Awesome article! Thanks! I will be printing this for the next three months and distributing it to as many people as I am able. It has to be about the most concise synopsis of the history leading up to this war as any I've seen.
It's becoming pretty clear to even the dim witted among
us that liberals just won't fight.
This leads to perceptions that liberals are pacifists,
appeasers, cowards, or even traitors.
The history of the past 100 (1000) years shows that
if you are not prepared to fight, prepare to die.
Our enemy boasts that "we love death more than you love life".
They understand that the most important strategic weapon in their arsenal is not bombs but western liberalism.
The Jihadis won't be changing anytime soon.
Will liberals change before it's too late?
And why? Precisely because this nation was founded upon the Godly principles of fundamental morality as taught by Jesus Christ and as found in the traditional Judaeo-Christian faith...which teaches tolerance, doing good to others, treating others as you would be treated, and spreading those values through reasoned discussion and a winning of the heart and mind.
All of which is what the modern democratic party decries and opposes in principle.
Oh well...I have gone on enough I suppose.
Now, they're working on a new plan, called Project Bohica.
Wake up all you blind jewish liberal democrats....
the leftist Ehud Olmert has bungled the IDF initiatives.
Ed Koch is right...your Democrat party leadership is too vacuous for these tumultuous times. Weak gutless leadership is not the answer to fighting the WOT in the face of these radical death Islamo cultists.
Ummm yeah! What She said! :-)
