Make no mistake about it.
There is evil in the world.
There are men who don’t care how many innocent people they kill in their lust to seize and hold power.
There are men who hate our freedoms, and want to terrify us into surrendering them.
The same men, of course, who are “not that concerned” about capturing Osama bin Laden.
The same men who failed to finish the job in Afghanistan because they wanted the troops for an excellent adventure that would set up a “Mission Accomplished” photo op.
The same men who ignored the experts and failed to plan for the occupation of Iraq.
The same men who failed to secure the weapons stockpiles before the Iraqi insurgents could arm themselves.
The same men who turned the Coalition Provisional Authority into a patronage dump and slush fund for their political friends and corporate sponsors.
The same men who allowed the looting of the Baghdad Museum by one gang of thieves and of the Defense and Intelligence budgets by a more expensively dressed gang of thieves..
The same men who preferred gay-baiting to recruiting Arabic translators.
The same men who neglected the need for the FBI to hire counter-terrorism agents who spoke any of the relevant languages.
The same men who have made the Department of Homeland Security a bad joke.
The masters of terror.
Fear them. Fight them.
