They already knew about the damned plot on 9/11, there were people in the FBI raising warnings and they were ignored by their higher ups, the same people who ignored those warnings saw no consequences for doing so post 9/11....
Heck, they STILL cannot connect the dots today, as the Russians drew a line to the Boston Bombers to help them on their way and they still couldn't find their a** with their hands.
Why didn’t it stop the Boston Bombing?
Total and complete BS...
Peter King and the IRA . . . still supporting them and their “one struggle” with the PLO?
King needs to take the blinders off. This tunnel vision is going to land us all in a police state.
Somebody should ask him about those Boston Bombers...
so let’s all live like 1984 because of an unproveable “might have”
Didn't prevent Boston.
You know what would have absolutely have stopped the 9/11 attacks? 100% guarantee. No invasion of privacy.
Ground all airlines. All of them. No airplanes in the air, none to hit the WTC, Pennsylvanai or Pentagon.
It has never been about stopping terrorist acts. It is about the cost of doing so.
Ya know what would have prevented the attacks on 9/11? Immigration control & enforcement.
Yeah, and had that butterfly not been killed 1.2 billion years ago, that traffic accident in downtown New York would not have occurred.
As if anyone with room temp IQ or above believes anything coming out of the DC clown show.
Our gubmit...when you absolutely, positively cannot earn a living doing anything useful.
The problem is that most people don’t want to live in a police state with Big Brother watching and listening to everything and everybody. We don’t want a government we have to fear and that distrusts everybody.
I think a lot of people who weren’t terribly upset when the Patriot Act was originally passed are having second thoughts now that we have a “man” in the White House who has proven he will use the power of government against those who disagree with him politically.
Donald Rumsfeld would have referred to that as an Unknown Unknowable.
I'm only aware of some rather vague statements made during an overall security briefing. Do you have proof of something more substantial?
Sure. Yep, it MIGHT have prevented 9-11....maybe. But it DIDN’T prevent Boston, of that I am certain.
I agree. I have been supportive of King’s public anti-terroism stance in the past but not this. The government had all the info it needed to stop the attack(s)on 9/11(s). Government screws up and bad things happen. So what does the government do, punish the innocents. Gun control comes to mind also.
