What America Has Lost. It’s clear we overreacted to 9/11.

• NewsWeek
Nine years after 9/11, can anyone doubt that Al Qaeda is simply not that deadly a threat? Since that gruesome day in 2001, once governments everywhere began serious countermeasures, Osama bin Laden’s terror network has been unable to launch a single major attack on high-value targets in the United States and Europe. While it has inspired a few much smaller attacks by local jihadis, it has been unable to execute a single one itself. Today, Al Qaeda’s best hope is to find a troubled young man who has been radicalized over the Internet, and teach him to stuff his underwear with explosives.

Flash!!
Calling all Americans across the nation ... and all the ships at sea ... Flash!!


After reading Bakadude's recent comments on Phoenix Freedom's website,
Al "CIA"aeda operatives have announced, in the special style of Bakadude himself,

 "Americans ARE mentally retarded like how, er, the likes of Osma bin Laden and
Zakaria think they are!  It is NOT so stupid for them to think that way!"

Ah Fareed. He's not an Al CIA-duh shill, he's an establishment tool. Newsweek, Time, NYT (the toilet paper of record) are all the same. Fareed is supposed to the the "voice of reason" but he's more like the squeak of moderation. Or the pip-squeak of moderation.

This author’s name Fareed Zakaria that sounds Muslim who writes as a Muslim is Al Qaeda’s mouthpiece. He writes: "Al Qaeda’s best hope is to find a troubled young man who has been radicalized over the Internet, and teach him to stuff his underwear with explosives." Islam has already found one – Barack Obama, with Zakaria as one of his thousands of backups all over the United States.

In this chameleon article written by a disguised Jihadist for Al Qaeda, Zakaria admits terror was unable to launch a major attack because of what we have done under the leadership of former president Bush that cost us billions of dollars and thousands of lives of men and women in uniform, but at the same time his covert mudslinging was directed against this effective but expensive counter-terrorist measure calling it "overacting". Who does he think he can fool? Americans are not mentally retarded like how the likes of Osma bin Laden and Zakaria think they are! It is so stupid for them to think that way!

 Am I to conclude the writer of this article believes that Al Qaeda (the creation of the CIA ) was able to suppress testimony of NYC firemen about explosions within THREE WTC towers, to destroy WTC 7 without even hitting it with an airplane, to be able to obtain nano-thermite (a military explosive) as found as residue from the explosions, to have a jet engine from a different type plane than alleged to have hit the tower be found on the street of NYC suppressed, to have all structural steel sequestered and shipped to China to prevent analysis of thermite use, to have USAF aircraft moved to inland bases for military drills, to suppress the production of any aircraft recorders from the four aircraft, to produce a hole in the Pentagon smaller than the fuselage of the alleged aircraft (to say nothing of the wing and tail structure), but why go on.......

 Over reacted in a diffeent way as well. When it was shown that the U.S. government couldn't protect the country against a dozen or so determined men, the government began to view EVERYBODY as potential terrorists, and the resultant crack-down on freedom has done more damage to this country  than anybody could possibly have imagined.

Bin Laden just pushed over the first domino, and the rest are falling even better than he could have hoped for.
