“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.”

That’s exactly what they want you to believe.

The Boston bombing “conveniently” supports Hillary’s “spontaneous” lie with Benghazi.

The terrorist, without any advanced notice and planning, “spontaneously” carried out the attack.

With the Boston bombing we are told the terrorist’s original plan was to carry out an attack on July 4 but just a couple of days before the bombing changed their plans and without any planning decided to bomb the marathon and then “spontaneously” planned to attack NYC.

They knew about the Boston bombing and didn’t stop it to support their lie and cover up Obama and Hillary’s planning the attack in Libya.

While we're playing "might have", a fully armed complement of passengers on those flights might have stopped the hijackings. I don't see anyone in Congress saying that we should have gun shops on airport concourses because of that "might have".

I have no problem with the surveillance, I have a problem with this twice unconstitutionally elected admitted foreign born communist in the WH trying to “fundamentally transform” the USA into a totalitarian state which potentially makes the NSA and every other dept. under him extremely dangerous for every citizen who is against statism. And we have seen that danger, it’s happening as we have seen with the IRS and Obamacommiecare forced upon the people.

NY’s Pete King is part of that two coast GOP squeeze bunch who believe that any assult on what the NSA is doing will eliminate the Patriot Act. Even the guy who wrote most of it, Sensenbrenner, doesn’t share that stupid opinion.

I disagree. No conspiracy is needed when institutional stupidity works.

I believe the NSA in 1999 through the ECHELON program intercepted chatter between al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi but the bureaucracy was too bloated to do anything about the threat (And the individuals despite their success at getting their visa applications approved).

Guess what King and the rest of the Statist worshipers, the bureaucracy is just as tangled and bloated before. A large bureaucracy by default is inefficient, especially when accountability is hidden and nonexistent.

Instead of spying on citizens, target those with business, amusement, and student visas. Clean out the State Department and change the rules where incompetence will get whole sections fired on the spot and benefits forfeited.

They already knew about the damned plot on 9/11

I’m only aware of some rather vague statements made during an overall security briefing. Do you have proof of something more substantial?

It is called “Able Danger” and it detected 9/11 before it happened but was covered up top cover up top level incompetence and I found out about it on free republic by the way...

I first became suspicious there was a terrorist attack in the works about a month before the Boston bombing.

Didn’t know any of the details, just the first hint there was a terrorist attack in the works.

Got a second hint about 2-3 weeks before the attack.

Got a 3rd hint from Eric Holder about a week before the attack.

If I can do it, they can do it.

They did it under Bush, they can do it now.

Yup, I have always maintained that after 9/11 there should have been a proctology exam at the FBI and CIA followed by mass firings and pensionectomies....

But the entrenched beuracrapcy just used it as an excuse to expand itself and now we have an expanded FBI/CIA and two new departmwents that routinely violate our civil rights ie. the TSA and the DHS....

I don't care how many bombings the NSA prevents if it ignores the Constitution.
Laws have no authority to take away my Constitutional rights no matter how they're worded.

I know, I'm evil for allowing terrorism so says the Left as they subvert freedoms
for bigger Government. They act as if this is the golden idol that will save us all.

Let me guess.

You believe all the terrorist attacks reported as stopped under Bush are completely fabricated and never happened.

Uh, no. I asked for a clarification on your comment, nothing more complicated than that.

NSA was listening in on AQ HQ phone calls for three years before 9/11. They tracked two hijackers to the U.S.

Their failure wasn’t due to not having enough police state tools.

Peter King is a perennial Fox News RINO guest, that’s one thing I know.

Couple things that never made the phony 9/11 report.Of course having Gorelic on the commission was a farce,but other than that no mention of political correctness which hindered investigation of Arabs learning to fly and not wanting to learn how to land.
What section of the 9\11 report deals with “Able Danger”?
I didn’t think so
