It's beyond sad when our president has to use terrorism to deflect attention away from Kerry's campaign. It's just more proof, or nails in the preverbial coffin, that team Bush knows its time is coming to an end.

July 29, Faisal Saleh Hayyat, Pakistan's interior minister, announced the arrest of a high-ranking Al Qaeda figure on local television. After a tense standoff in Gujrat, a city some 100 miles southeast of Islamabad, Pakistani security forces had captured the Tanzanian jihadist Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, the FBI's twenty-second "Most Wanted" terrorist and a suspected conspirator in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. A proud Hayyat dubbed the arrest "another crowning success of Pakistan's security apparatus in the fight against terrorism." But it is doubtful Hayyat was really addressing his fellow Pakistanis: He made the announcement at midnight. More likely, his intended audience was half a world away - in the United States, where, in the middle of the afternoon, John Kerry was preparing to deliver his nomination speech to the Democratic National Convention.
There have been more acts of terror this year than any year previous. Why? Because the Bush administration and the Sharon government have been working overtime to stir up every hornets nest imaginable in the hopes of creating more and more enemies to fight.
M2, that guy speaks outta both sides of his mouth on everything! Basically in Bushworld night is day, black is white and lies are truth. He's winning the war on terra, but we are in danger! I'd like for the pResident to tell us just how that can be? We're winning, but we're in DANGER! It's ridiculous. He can't have that both ways.
is b/c of the cauldron of chaos BushCo
It was not a breeding ground for terrorists the way BushCo. tried to paint it. He actually made it so.

...I read your posts on ATS all the time ECK, and most if not all of them are backed up by unreliable links bashing Bush with no proof that are very short sighted. Anyone that disagrees with you is flamed and burned on the stake. But to say the war on terror is an imagination is absurb and a slap in the face to every soldier out there risking their lives. When you take your _ass to Iraq and Afghan and actually fight these people for yourselves, maybe you'll see this all a little differently. I have.
What are you looking for in proof?
Are you looking for CNN, NBC or CBS to tell you?
Get f'ing real bud!
This is what this discussion board is all about. At least I thought it was, but now I find it to be sadly overcome by zombies who take it in the rear from the man and do and think as they are told.
ECK and others (including myself) have it bang on as to what is really happening out there. Those who allow themselves to be easily distracted, persuaded and otherwise manipulated by the mainstream, corporately owned media are nothing more than sheep being ever so cleverly led through the pasture.
You try to bring truth and wisdom to the less fortunate and all you get in return is abuse and harsh words
Wake up man - the 'war on terror', the war against this fictitious enemy is nothing more than a replacement for the evil empire gone by - the Soviet Union. Al queda is an enemy of convenience created out of the smoke and fire of 911 to push forward relentlessly, at the expense of anyone and anything, with the globalist agenda, otherwise known as the New World Order. People are getting killed all over this god damn planet at the hands of the biggest terror outfit going - the US administration. You just don't see it because your definition of 'proof' is not allowed within the borders of your big brother police state.
As for acts of terrorism otherwise - sure they happen but what we are saying is that the claims by the government and the corporate media goons are nothing more than outright lies. Truths are twisted, situations created, all propaganda to control the masses.
The US cannot exist without fighting wars. The nation is all about guns and killing, plain and simple. Support the troops, join the army, play in a marching band, save private ryan, rah rah USA. Now sign here, grab your boots and off you go. The name of the game is cannon fodder! Look for your draft card in the mail!
The brainwashing within the american culture knows no bounds and it is sickening!

Instead of going after terrorists in an assenine, never-ending "war," we should pursue them doggedly and prosecute them in the courts of law. They are criminals and should be treated as such.
