So GWB kept us safe, eh? [View all]
So GWB kept us safe, eh? Listen...do you hear them? Braying like some possessed religious cult.
Excuse me? George W. Bush DID NOT "keep us safe". These people, these propagandists are NOT going to rewrite THIS history. Not for me. Because I REMEMBER that day.
HE. KNEW. That was the first thought that crossed my mind when I saw those planes fly into those buildings and it remains my primary thought about 9/11 - the heartbreak of knowing that it certainly could have been prevented had we elected (rather than having selected for us by a partisan court) a competent and conscience-possessed LEADER.
The man who led the country before Bush was out of office by the time the attacks happened no longer had any control over these events or methods of preventing them.
And George W. Bush ignored that former President's warnings about al Queda and immediately cancelled the daily meetings President Clinton used to have regarding their activity inside our country.
Now, you can call me whatever you want to call me. I've been called every name in the book. You'll have to make up new ones to surprise or hurt me. But I'm telling you that George W. Bush DID NOT keep this country "safe". Quite the contrary.
And I WILL NOT sit silently by while his propagandists try to rewrite history every 9/11.

CIA Documents Confirm that Bush Administration Ignored Repeated Warnings about Osama bin Laden Attack Plans
Bush held up plan to hit Bin Laden
Clinton Told Bush That Bin Laden Top Security Threat, Time Says
The Bush White House Wad Deaf to 9/11 Warnings:
I'm telling you HE. KNEW. And he did NOTHING.
Furthermore, it took BARACK OBAMA 13 years later to finally eliminate what should have been Bush's primary and ONLY target both before and after 9/11.
And it took BARACK OBAMA to finally END the needless and hideously expensive war (in terms of both dollars and lives) that Bush subsequently started in Iraq. This needless killing spree was based purely on pretentious lies and done for nothing but political and profitmaking purposes. And it had NOTHING to do with 9/11 although it was presented to the American people as something that had everything to do with it.
How many of the 9/11 hijackers were from Iraq or Afghanistan?
They were mostly from Saudi Arabia, the remainder were from UAE and Lebanon.
I'm telling you this false narrative and this attempt to rewrite our nation's history will NOT continue with me and I will not allow it to stand. Especially not on days like today.
George W. Bush did NOT keep this nation safe.
He inexplicably (to a sane mind) ignored warnings from our previous President, from his own national security team, from his own FBI and CIA officials, from multiple other nations, and from his own advisors and his own PDB(s).
HE. KNEW. And yet he did NOTHING to keep this nation safe.
Worse, he subsequently dragged us into a needless and very expensive war based purely on lies.
Lie by Lie: A Timeline of How We Got Into Iraq
If Mr. Bush had a conscience, he'd be ashamed for what he's done - and for what he failed to do - deliberately or otherwise.
But as is, it's only the rest of us who REMEMBER and feel the shame of what this man has done in our nation's name - and the pain for all those who lost their lives in these needless and preventable events.
My heart resides with those who died. And my anger remains focused on the one man who could have prevented it -- but inexplicably - didn't - and then worse, went on to make sure others needlessly died in Iraq, too.
That is all.
