What were Achcroft's exact words, when he threatened...
that a vote for Kerry is a vote for Osama? It was at the very beginning, and it was after he "confirmed" Spain's election was influenced by them and they'll do it here too.

How can these guys get away with saying such shit without the press challenging them?

"After the March 1st attack in Madrid, Spain, an Al Qaeda spokesman announced that 90 percent of the arrangements for an attack in the United States were complete.

The Madrid railway bombings were perceived by Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda to have advanced their cause. Al Qaeda may perceive that a large-scale attack in the United States this summer or fall would lead to similar consequences.

Several upcoming events over the next few months may suggest especially attractive targets for such an al Qaeda attack. These events include the G-8 summit, hosted by the United States in Georgia; the Democratic Party convention in Boston this summer; or the Republican Party convention in New York City."
