Another terrorist plot, this time at John F. Kennedy International airport, has been prevented. Once again we see that John Kerry was right and George Bush was wrong on fighting terrorism. This plot was stopped by law enforcement, which George Bush didn’t have a favorable view of back in 2004:
“Kerry said, and I quote, ‘The war on terror is far less of a military operation and far more of an intelligence-gathering law enforcement operation.’ (Audience boos.) I disagree. I disagree….. After the chaos and carnage of September the 11th, it is not enough to serve our enemies with legal papers. With those attacks, the terrorists and supporters declared war on the United States of America — and war is what they got. (Audience applauds.)
If only there was some basic police work after George Bush read those warnings that bin Laden planned an attack in the United States involving the use of planes. Many of the 9/11 terrorists were already on a State Department/INS watch list. Once the terrorists on the watch list were identified, others could have been easily identified as they were using the same address or frequent flier numbers as those on the list. Unfortunately George Bush didn’t become a believer in police action against terrorism until after the 2004 election.
