Especially in light of the "racial profiling" news that was all the rage back then. I remember that very morning, a local radio show was reporting about two black women arrested at an airport (LAX, I think), because they had identical green suitcases, one of which authorities had a tip contained a lot of drugs. The one who was wrongly detained was raising a racial profiling ruckus.

In the middle of that news report, they cut away to coverage of the trade center.

Just great! It's amazing how the brilliant people on the left can support pre-emptive war in hindsight.

If they thought about their positions then they would become more conservative or their brains would explode.
Therefore they do not think.

If the same standards suggested in this article had applied in 1941, Prime Minister Churchill and President Roosevelt would both have been removed from office for their "folly and criminality" in opposing the Nazi government of Hitler's Germany.

Not Churchill. Lest we forget, England fought Hitler from September of 1939, going alone against him from May of 1940 through late June of 1941, and we only joined the fight at the very end of 1941.
