Nearly 5 Years After 9-11 Al Qaeda Is Still A Threat?
10s of thousands of U.S. military casualties, hundreds of billions of dollars spent, and Osama bin Laden is still alive and still able to threaten the lives of people around the world?

Somebody please tell my why the GOP believes the failure in the White House is the indispensable man in the so-called "War On Terror."

2. Not really. there's more of a risk just driving a car.
Last year in the USA there were 43,134 transportation deaths. I fear other drivers, not the terrorists. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=990CEEDE...

3. Remember when we weren't going to stop looking for Osama until we'd
"smoked him out"?

Well, how is that going, anyway?

4. THis is one thing that is not acceptable or understandable.
This is why it's so easy to wear a foil hat at times. It's easier to believe they don't want to capture OBL until just before the 08 elections than no combined force on Earth can catch him.

6. WW2
We start and finished WW2 quicker than this bogus hunt for Osama. MAybe we could ask some wealthy country that has lots of technology and a big defense budget to find him for us. We seem pretty impotent in this case.

7. AlQaeda is a Boogie Man...a stock boogieman they keep on the shelf
and drag out whenever they nned to pull us back in line. OBL is long dead. He had a terminal kidney disease. Doesn't matter, though, because the purpose is to bring them out of the closet and use them to scare you.

They are the Goldstein in '1984'.

8. I think OBL is still around and dangerous; it's the incompetence and
unjustifable piorities of our Dear Leader and the rest of the Insane Clown Posse that we can thank for this. If we had an actual congress, I'd say they could face impeachment on the strength of this fact alone.

9. Not only Al-qada...
But Hezbollah as well, not to mention the rest of the world hating our guts as well.

Who should we thank to ??
