167. There was a strong chain of evidence of al Qaeda attacks on US interests going
back to the '90s. Don't believe me - read a book. We were attacked on 9/11 precisely because we never responded to the previous attacks in any meaningful way. With each successive attack, al Qaeda became convinced that they could chip away at American interests with no consequences.

Now your position that the US needed 'hard evidence' to proceed with action against bin Laden is one position, but it is a distinctly minority position. Clinton tried mightily to kill the fucker. Dick Clarke tried vainly to get Bush to kill him prior to 9/11. The American people overwhelmingly supported the invasion of Afghanistan, and the guy you (presumably) voted for for POTUS is determined to kill the man, quite possibly by invading yet another country. All without the FBI's 'hard evidence'. Imagine that.

9/11 was not some junkie knocking over a liquor store. International law has not kept pace with the evolution of international terrorists. If bin Laden's left nut had been found dangling from the landing gear of Flight 11, people like you would claim that it was planted. Anyone fucked-up enough to let religious lunatics pick off their fellow citizens willy-nilly is fucked-up up enough to never be able to acknowledge that the bad man actually did it, regardless of what evidence was available.

You have demonstrated to me that you are determined to ignore any and all evidence that bin Laden is guilty. I have given you plenty of links, and your response was this...

> As for the subsequent tapes, I think they're fake or manipulated.

Wow, that was thought-provoking. You've got cognizant dissonance on your sleeve.

No, Bush will never be able to produce evidence that would satisfy you. And you know what? I don't give a flying fuck. Bush did the right thing - the only right thing - that he ever did, and I'm hopefully optimistic that Obama is smart enough to finish the job.
