71. When you know of a threat, there's a big difference between looking for it & NOT looking for it.
This isn't saying that all Democrats are Supermen. It's just saying that, in this case, Gore would have done everything he could to protect America from these threats. We know that Bush didn't.

Gore would have done his job, and would have been looking for it. Bush intentionally was not.

9/11 happened not because of the awesome, unstoppable power of al Qaeda. And it did not happen because of the inadequacies of American intelligence & law enforcement services. (As I said above, they had stopped several plots before; there's no reason to believe they wouldn't have continued t be as effective in the future.)

9/11 happened because of pure partisan Republican politics, and a change of the people at the top of the fed govt. Their attitude was "If Clinton did it, then we won't do it."
