That the media is largely ignoring the fact that the Vice President was almost murdered today?
No, he wasn't. If you had actually paid any attention to the news reports, you would have known that he was well inside the base and well out of harm's way. Or are you just trolling?
Should the fact that he was inside the base change the fact that the Taliban targeted him?
And how is anyone supposed to pay attention to the news reports that havent been given? Thats the whole point of the thread. There is hardly any mention of it at all anywhere. If it hadn't been mentioned in the blogs or on other message boards, Id have no idea anything actually happened.
If it WAS an assassination attempt, the terrorists had even worse aim than Cheney does.
I heard all about it... from more than one source, not sure why you think it was ignored... where do you usually go for news?
To give it perspective for some of our more, how should I say it, liberal friends, here on USMB. What if an attack had been made on the same base while John Kerry was visiting, not that he would, but just for the sake of conversation?
Hell people, they would of formed a Senate investigative panel, and SECURITY would of been the "password" for the MSM for weeks.
THATS the point of the post, get it?
