Check this out I still maintain my position that its actually the republicans that have dropped the ball on keeping America safe. It is the right wing who have responded to terrorism exactly the way bin Laden wants and their policies have strengthened our enemies. We did have a republican President a that time, he had a report come across his desk saying bin Laden determined to attack inside US, and he did nothing about it. Then he sat in a classroom doing nothing for 7 minutes when he heard of the attack. Why do all these republicans say it was Bill Clinton's fault that 9/11 slipped through our fingers. Bush was in office for 8 months preceding the attack. Republicans like to say "we were attacked in 2001 and bush started the war on terror, and we haven't been attacked since. so obviously it's working and bush is keeping america safe!" i don't even know where to start on that.
