Forget about Zell Miller, what about George Pataki?

Did you catch this part of Pataki's speech on Thursday at the RNC (just before the video and Bush speech): (emp add)
The president took strong action to protect our country. That sounds like something any president would do. How I wish that were so.

You know the history. Osama bin Laden declared war on America -- and then came the attacks -- the first World Trade Center, the embassies, the USS Cole, hundreds dead, thousands injured.

How I wish the administration at that time, in those years, had done something.

How I wished they had moved to protect us. But they didn't do it.
Clinton didn't do anything to protect the country?   Not true.

One thing we know for sure is that Bush didn't do squat his first eight months in office.


Actually, Osama bin Laden didn't "declare war" on us until 1997. The Towers were bombed in 1993, months after Poppy was dethroned. Four years before. Until the embassy bombings, interest in bin Laden was growing and strong, but not desperate. He hadn't actually committed a crime against the United States. In January 2000, Condoleeza Rice wrote a nice piece in Foreign Affairs about American foreign policy. Mentioned al-Qaida, bin Laden, or the Taliban not at all.

Pataki is a tool. Clearly, these people don't believe in Hell.

It seems to me that in politics is is possible to create a 'fact' where the was none. Get enough people nodding and it's true for purposes of utility. I am not about to trot of the phrase 'Big Lie' in your news comments section, but I could.

I guess this was all just a dream...

Actually the CIA brought down the World Trade Center.

But you Americaans are too stupid to see the truth.

Now your Empire is crumbling.
