It means that all the spying, the searches of our homes and computers, the constant TV cameras, the fondling of our wives and daughters at the airports, the wiretaps, the reading of our emails, the torture ... HAVE ALL FAILED.
None of it works. All that time and money has been a total waste. For all the suffering and inconvenience inflicted on the American people, Homeland Security failed.
This will be all the more true if there is a new terror attack. It will mean that all those government officials who promised us safety if would but lay our entire lives bare before them lied to us. It will mean that there really isn't anything to be gained by going along with the repression any more, indeed to even listen to them will be totally pointless. It means that all the fondling of our wives and daughters at the airport was just that; a bunch of perverts waving a badge to get their jollies with their machines that look at you without your clothes on.
There is one and only one way to end terrorism, and that is to stop screwing around with other peoples' countries. When you stop screwing around with other peoples countries, the terrorists will go home. and when you start finding and hanging the spies for foreign government pretending to be terrorists to trick you into war on that foreign government's enemies, we will have peace and freedom.
Which brings to mind "Let sleeping dogs lie" because we have gone in and created a breeding ground for more little Al Qaedas- thanks to the good decisions of the "Decision Maker"

I think the real issue is the fact that Pakistan has PROMISED the US that they have this region under control. And by region I am referring to the mountains on the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. We have know from the beginning of the war on terror that this region was a hot spot of activity.
I remember a few months back Pakistan's president was in the US on a media blitz to assure the US that they were on it. HE WAS EVEN ON THE DAILY SHOW!!
I can't help but feel that this is more proof that the war on terror is nothing but a front to perpetrate the war over oil.
I appreciate the fact the this particular area is very rugged and difficult, but come on. If we can land a robot on Mars can't we figure out how to flush out this area?
