WATERBURY, Connecticut (AP) -- Sen. Joe Lieberman set out on his go-it-alone re-election campaign Thursday and seized on the terror arrests in Britain to argue that his Democratic opponent, Ned Lamont, does not fully understand the danger facing the nation.
Lieberman's stop in Waterbury was his first public event since losing Tuesday's Democratic primary, dismissing his campaign staff and launching his independent bid.
He seized on the terror plot in Britain to criticize Lamont's opposition to the war in Iraq.
"I'm worried that too many people, both in politics and out, don't appreciate the seriousness of the threat to American security and the evil of the enemy that faces us -- more evil or as evil as Nazism and probably more dangerous than the Soviet communists we fought during the long Cold War," Lieberman said.
"If we just pick up like Ned Lamont wants us to do, get out by a date certain, it will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England. It will strengthen them and they will strike again."

What happened to the world where I am now rooting for a liberal?
Lamont, you big dummy!
Can't help but root for him....he's an honorable guy.
A liberal, but at least a patriotic liberal. Which are few and far between in today's Rat Party.
Aunt Esther's campaigning for Lamont. She's gonna wrap up the ugly vote for him.
It's not a threat, it's just a nuisance.
John Kerry told me so.
I hope the states republicans really rally behind him
Rasmussen Reports has just released Lieberman Lamont poll... and you can read it, if you're a premium member.
No, Joe, he understands. But the DNC leadership believes that regaining a majority is more important than American security.
Hey, Joe L.,
The time for EXTREME UNDERSTATEMENT has passed.
PLEASE! TELL IT LIKE IT IS! Call a spade a spade and a traitor a traitor!
(Go Israel, Go! Slap 'Em Down Hezbullies.)
I'm not a premium member...so can you give me a hint?
"Can't help but root for him....he's an honorable guy."
Same here. I support anyone who truly supports the safety of my country. Joe is a good guy.
I can`t believe Conn. voters voted for this a-wipe Lamont. I was listening to him on the radio the other day and he`s screeching like the male version of Cindy Sheehan.
Seems to me, MOST of Reid's words have been idiotic at best; insanely traitorous at worst and chronically stupid most of the time.
imho, of course.
Now, if someone who is... wink wink! ;)
"I can`t believe Conn. voters voted for this a-wipe Lamont. I was listening to him on the radio the other day and he`s screeching like the male version of Cindy Sheehan."
I thought the same thing when I have heard him.
I have not heard one positive thing come from this guy. It's almost as if he has a dark cloud over his head. Doesn't he see even 1 positive?
