I guess you forgot that airplanes that they used to both get here in our back yard and attack us with. In this world 10,000 miles IS our backyard but let them grow and get stronger and fly here at will. I hope the next attack doesnt affect YOUR family.

Let me get this straight:
Mitt Romney supports the indefinite detainment of American citizens. (he's essentially Obama's clone)
Rick Santorum supports bombing Iran into oblivion and continuing the war propaganda.
Rick Perry says we need to go back to Iraq. (and he backed down on the TSA)
Newt Gingrich says terrorist attacks are a good thing!
And they say Ron Paul is the crazy unelectable one????

I'll agree with the person who called Newt an arrogant douche. I can't even stand to look at his face.
By the way, what Newt was saying WASN'T that we SHOULD or WILL let attacks happen, but rather he said this to make a point. Not that he wants it or would make it so. Just saying. I'm not trying to say he's right or a good man or anything, but this statement is being blown out of proportion. Makes me think that people are really starting to grasp at straws to make it look like bad things are happening.

His comment of letting an attack happen was not said in a way that he meant it literally. He was saying that the FBI is doing such a good job (in their own eyes) that we are becoming too comfortable. We need to stay prepared for anything on any given day.
Almost like they need to let one slip just to keep us awake. But not literally saying we should allow it to happen.
