    So when Obama shot Osama, ' the terrorists won'.

    Try selling that on any street corner.

    Straw man argument. Nothing else to do today? Have a particular agenda you'd like to push but don't want to start a thread on it yourself?

    Terrorists Infiltrating US Military...
    :eek:
    Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee sees internal threats to military
    12/7/11 : Rep. Peter King on Wednesday cited “alarming new developments” that showed what he said was a rising and relatively unknown threat to American soldiers – terrorists who are infiltrating the U.S. military and increasingly targeting service members and their families.

    This doesn't surprise me...look what happened at Ft. Hood. I've heard of others trying the same thing. I seem to remember a soldier a few years ago in Iraq that killed several soldiers on their base when they were sleeping. I believe he was also found to be a muslim. NOT saying it happened just because he's a muslim tho (just to get that straight!) :)

    I actually used that phrase yesterday - albeit tongue in cheek. We had a threat against the school that spread like wildfire through facebook. Half the students stayed home from school, and the other half were suffering high anxiety. It seemed to me that the "terrorist had won". I hope they catch that little bastard and send his parents a bill for the bomb dogs, the dozen or so police patrols, and the loss of education of about 1000 students. (Wishful thinking on my part)

    The day the public swallowed the whole war on terror BS, and sat back while the patriot act was passed, was when the "terrorists" won.
    Just think for a minute how many times the gullible public was told "they hate us for our freedoms" then our own government starts stripping away the bill of rights and constitutional amendments, that they said the "terrorists" hated us for...:eusa_liar: :cuckoo:

    I see this as a good thing for the procedure forms two terrorist entities into one organization. It's then a single head to cut off.
