One difference between Bush and Obama is Obama's need for publicity.

Really? Can you provide some examples of this "difference"...?

The Patriot Act and Department of Homeland Defense thwarted the attack.

Indeed. How many were stopped under Bush? Hundreds, but that was called partisan BS by the left each time one was announced. :eusa_whistle:

I can think of ONE very BIG ONE that Bush didn't thwart - even though he was WARNED by the Clinton Administration - specifically Richard Clarke.

Charming. The guys who do the hard shit... let's ignore them and credit some assclown in the White House.

Thousands of unsung heroes who work tirelessly day and night to protect us... and this twit says 'thank you' to Obama.

I would like, for the record, to thank those who really thwarted this plot - and hundreds of others - many of which we never hear about - unless the President needs a poll bounce.

Can you also remember the multiple times Clinton had UBL in the crosshairs and was too chicken shit to pull the trigger?

I have suspicions about the whole story....a bit too convenient....
but if it is legit, and based on the spike Obama got, albeit shortlived,
from the OBL episode,
this could be his best chance to be reelected.
He bombs Iran a year from October.

Hope not.

And literally 'in the crosshairs'. They had him surrounded, in their fucking gun sights.... and no 'kill' order.

If one wants to assign blame for 9/11 to any American - and I fundamentally believe we should not.... Billy Boy Clinton owns it. Planned under Clinton and he's the one who could have stopped it.
