NO! It was foiled by the same type of investigative and "police" actions that Dems support and Bushco says doesn't work.

'nuff said.

2. EXACTLY!! SAME way as tracking down the PanAm103 bombers,
the Munich murderers (well, it wasn't an army, anyway!), and good old TMcV.

3. Most Democrats support he "War on Terror" concept unfortunately
Much like Clinton's "War on Crime/Drugs"; anything to get people's minds away from things that actually do hurt them.

Minor changes in law enforcement probably would've been all we needed after 9/11. But no, we are embarking on all these crusades that our leaders know makes terrorism worse. Which makes more crusades necessary. Which makes terrorism worse...

4. Yup, this hysteria and world war is insane
These guys are not rocket scientists. It's not that hard to figure out where they are going to strike next, and keep your eyes open. Bombing the shit out of countries does nothing for terrorists who can move anywhere at will. It's like going after a mosquito with a sledgehammer. Your house will fall down before you get one.

5. Unfortunately, the British are using the same kind of "Patriot Act"
law that has allowed our govt to snoop on phone calls, emails, and search suspected terrorists without probable cause.
