news.bbc.co.uk

Republican presidential hopeful John McCain has distanced himself from an aide's comments that a terror attack on the US would help his campaign.

Charlie Black, who later said he regretted his remarks, told Forbes magazine that an attack on US soil would be a "big advantage"...

Can political analysis go any lower? Maybe we should give this guy credit for being open with his opinions?

With advisors like this, who needs opponents?..

Lots of things would help McCain.
Frontal lobotomy
Jaw wired shut
Not saying inflammatory comments
Staying offstage with w
Aides who make outrageous statements such as these.

Be afraid people. Be very afraid. McCain will stomp them bad terrorists while Obama tries to 'talk' to them.

This people are so arrogant and so confident that they do no need to hide the already looking a fact by this type of comments that a 9/11 will secure the white house of McCain like it did for Bush.

Well there goes the 9/11 conspiracy again, slapping Americans right in their faces.

It appears this kind of behaviour is now so mainstream it doesn't even draw many comments!

As a Brit I still find this man's comments outrageous. Surely no-one in their right mind should associate anything positive with acts of terror, even in terms of indirect consequences.

Which is too bad.

The implication being that terror attacks in the United States...the murder of Americans...are a bonus to Republicans seeking office. The idea being that when Americans are in fear Republicans come across as heroes and the only alternative to preventing future attacks. I think he may have said exactly what most Republican politicians know. It certainly isn't a foreign concept, unless you are incredibly naive. Here is a man who looks not at the senseless death of Americans as tragic, but as a political bonus. An opportunity to grab power.

Could such ideas lead to some people staging attacks for that specific purpose alone?
How could he not realize the implications of such a statement?

The Bush administration has been using fear to get support for their endeavors for quite some time. If this doesn't get the gears in some sleeping peoples heads spinning I don't know what will.

If they're sharp enough...it may have them questioning 9-11 all together.
