In a press briefing today regarding the newest National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Al-Qaeda Fran Townsend said that it's been 6 years since we have been attacked again by terrorists yet a reporter finally asked my question!!! He asked if the anthrax attacks were terrorist attacks and Townsend said that in her mind they were.
THEY FINALLY ADMITTED THE OBVIOUS!!!! I'm SHOCKED that they'd admit this important fact that undermines their argument that supposedly there hasn't been any terrorist attacks since 9/11. These people are clearly losing their tight grip on the message and discussion. I bet Townsend will be flogged in Cheney's underground dungeon bunker for that slip-up.
In addition, Townsend was unable to admit that a growing Al-Qaeda hints at an administration who can not get a handle on terrorism.
Their logic of "we have to fight Al-Qaeda there so we don't have to fight them here" is absurd because if that is the case then we must invade Pakistan, Lebanon, Iran, and Saudi Arabia amongst others.
Obviously we do not have the troops to hold down Iraq let alone go after all these other Al-Qaeda hot spots. This is just more wind bag rhetoric.
