How unexpected!...Bush’s fault no doubt
I was told that he acted alone!
Which muttonhead are you referring to?
I wonder how much lower Obama's approval rating would be had either, or both of those men been successful.
Since the person in control of the State Island ferry was a Pakistani I am wondering if the SI ferry was on the list of potential targets.
Initial reports were that the ferry was on his list.
Well, Obama worshiped, supported and stayed for 17 years under Jeremiah Wright who said America deserved 9/11, so this would fall in line with his “theology”.
New York was the first target on 9/11. How is this attack different (in jihadist spirit) today than 9/11/2001?
(thank God this idiot failed - this time ...)
Who could believe this idiot country would vote in somebody like that?
No one would have believed it the morning of 9/11/2001, yet here we are.
In WWII the US tried eight German agents (two were American citizens-Burger, Haupt) and found them all guilty in a military tribunal.
These were the guys who came to the beach from U boats, to wreak havok on dams, trains, bridges and factories.
All sentenced to death by the court.
“Roosevelt commuted Burger’s sentence to life and Dasch’s to 30 years, because they had turned themselves in and provided information about the others. The others were executed on August 8, 1942.”
ie. The other American, Haupt, was executed under order of a military trial, confirmed by the Sureme Court.
The length of time from the landings on the beaches in NY and Florida, to the executions was less than 60 days.
For ancient history buffs: This happened a long, long time ago when America still had enough sense left to attempt fighting back, for survival.
America, by contrast, has been wringing its hands for over 8 years about how to handle similar matters, concerning islamic terrorists-illegal enemy combatants (who could be shot on the spot).
To date, nobody has been executed for acts of war against the US on US soil, in this phony war on terror. First the Bush administration, now the Obama administration have proved inept in this area.
