I always call a friend a friend, not a Muslim or Jewish or any other type of friend, simply friend. Maybe I shouldn`t be so trusting, just my nature I guess, getting too old to worry about if I should change or not now. And by the way 9-11-2001 was during G.W. Bushs watch in case you forgot but as I said I don`t believe it would have been too much different even if he had heeded the warnings, if not then & there some other time & place. All we can do is be aware of whats going on around us & make a phone call if we see anything or anyone that just doesn`t seem right, better safe than sorry.
The point is you don't know if there are a lot of radicals in your area or not. You may have a few friends who are Muslims but you don't know what's actually being said in the Mosques or on street corners. That lack of information and the blind trust you are professing will get someone killed. As an infidel they're not going to let you in on the things that go on amongst them. No, it all goes back to "you are know by the company you keep." I will be polite to everyone I meet but I will not trust my back to anyone belonging to a group swearing to kill Americans.
I didn't say anything about 9/11, I said that there hadn't been another terrorist attack getting to the point of almost actual detonation for the period of time he was President after 9/11. The many which were discovered were broken up well before that point. The current administration can't say the same thing. They have been lucky. Lisa
