    more than 3/4 have been brought to JUSTICE?

    I haven't even seen anyone CHARGED with anything since 9/11, let ALONE brought to justice.

    JUSTICE is being formally charged, given access to an attorney, and given a fair trial.

    I'm sorry if I don't just blindly accept that everyone the government "captures" is truely a terrorist that imminently threatened the US.

    Call me a terrorist sympathizer, i don't care.

    You say "terrorist"?

    Prove it.

    When was this intelligence gathered?

    If this info was available before the invasion, wouldnt that be grounds for impeachment?

    Why invade Iraq if our intel tells us that al Qaeda is not in Iraq, or run by Iraqi's?

    Read---out intel says they ARE in Iraq. Sooner or later your going to learn that al Quaeda is not representative of ANY nationality.

    Yep, al quaeda was there before US. How large? No one has made links between them and 9/11, other than 'leadership', and that may well be a stretch, depending on OBL's death date.

    This is what I dont understand.

    President Bush:
    Intel says they arent from Iraq, they never were.

    We originally tracked and attacked them in Afghanistan.

    Then out of nowhere we overthrew Saddam because he was a Dictator threatening the US with WMD's.

    Now its all about a problem the US exacerbated.

    A problem we were defeating.

    A problem that is now just as much of a threat as it ever was.

    We didn't invade North Africa in WWII because the Libyans, Morrocans or Algerians. You really need to educate yourself about who it is we are up against. If you want to eradicate a den of vipers, your going to get bit once in awhile.

    Bullshit argument. Who exactly are you going to charge after they blow themselves and a countless number of bystanders to dust?

    Your logic, or lack thereof, sucks.
