24. Yeah it's mindless....
The notion that the terrorists are somehow preoccupied with the "global war" therefore they have given up on attacking us in "911 style" here at home is the most mindless set of BS I've heard....

But Limbaugh et al have succeeded in spreading this lie and its worked to a large extent.

To some extent the logic could be inconspicuously morphed from what happened in kicked them around there....and accomplished a number of perhaps the same scenario would work in Iraq. That's about as far as any logic could possibly go in this....

But then you find that as much as we've kicked them around, it hasn't really stopped any of the possibility of 911 style attacks. Those can be accomplished with low tech and a dozen people.

If anything, what was broken up and kicked around in Iraq was a potential threat against Israel.
