For God sakes, stop ignoring the points. KB pointed out that he saw finally saw ONE person on TV telling the basic truth which the left has known about for years. You ignored this point and jumped to more of your nonsense. Your simplistic category of "the left" includes Carter and Clinton and Chomsky!?! That is simply ridiculous. When is it going to sink into your head that you can't lump all Americans into two category and claim that these categories are homogenous?
We already had discussed 1979, how the hell can you claim that Carter's actions were "liberal" and lump that together with people on the left that say propping up the Shah was wrong? How can you claim that "the left" and Carter are one in the same when people adhering to leftist principles of justice say Carter's actions with the Shah and Iran was wrong? I had pointed out that the US actions during the last year of the Shah were despicable, you know that was under Carter so why do you write such nonsense?
Clinton also lied about why terrorists attacked us. Much of Clinton's actions conflicted with basic liberal principles. You are in denial if you think Clinton actually represented "the left". The two major political parties in the US actually serve a narrow range of interests and others, including "the left" for the most part, are not represented.
Your comments look particularly foolish in light of what KB pointed to on the Lou Dobbs show. Michael Scheuer is a former senior intelligence analyst with the CIA and oversaw all CIA operations involving Osama bin Laden. On the Lou Dobbs show, Scheuer said : " ... unfortunately the politicians are very comfortable with preaching the idea that this is a very small group of people who are opposing us, and that they hate us for our freedoms and our liberties. The politicians really are at great fault for not squaring with the American people. We're being attacked for what we do in the Islamic world, not for who we are or what we believe in or how we live. And there's a huge burden of guilt to be laid at Mr. Bush, Mr. Clinton, both parties for simply lying to the American people."
If we really want to stop terrorism then we must take away the motives. You should give this serious thought, the fact is US policy makers have inflicted real wrongs upon many people in the Middle East and that is the motive for the 9/11 attacks. The Senior CIA Intelligence Analyst who oversaw all CIA operations involving Osama bin Laden said: We're being attacked for what we do in the Islamic world.
Sharon, stop lying to yourself and people here.
