    You've already demonstrated why that's a bad idea.

    So Ahmed Hikmat Shakir (if it's the same guy, all that's on the roster is a name) is the guy they've been trying to pin something on for months. Funny thing is, there was supposedly all this information on him and reported involvement in 9/11, but was arrested and released twice, once after an arrest in Qatar and once after being interrogated by the CIA in Jordan.



    It makes you wonder why he doesn't have a personalized cell at guantanamo

Imagine if, instead of moving our soldiers to Iraq, we're used them to build libraries and filled them with all the literature of Western culture? What if we'd paid people to come in from the sticks to get an education?





    Obviously this doesn't even work in inner-cities in the United States, why would it work abroad?



    I suppose since you can "imagine" it, it must be right.



    Imagine that we built these schools and the tribes only sent the boys by using fear tactics at night to provoke families into keeping their girls at home.



    Imagine the girls did go and the western literature told them the actually have rights. When confronting others about their lack of rights they are stoned to death.



    Imagine that local tribesman declare that just like western troops, western schools, western thought and western literature is just another form of imperialism and blow the school up.



    I can imagine lots of things as well.

    The thing I think is important, is that a line must be drawn in the sand somewhere. If you are looking for gray you will find it. If I were a guy that was on a remote island and read the stuff here, it would be hard to tell who is the bad guys. The lines have been blurred so badly by infinite reasoning and excuse making that it is ridiculous.

    Using soldiers solely to build libraries would be wasteful to the extreme. Besides that they are doing that in Iraq as we speak. I don't think SH would let soldiers in to build libraries. Do you think that the leaders of SA, Iran, Pakastan would be more willing? How many libraries do we have here in the united states? How many schools do we have here? What is the total bill for education and related programs here? I will suggest that we already do what you are suggesting.



    Besides, this terrorism thing is religious based. Can you see a bill being passed that promotes religion in this country?! It will never happen. believing that 40 virgins await you in heaven as a reward for killing the infidel (you and me) is a faith based teaching to these terrorists. In turn they are being taught that killing (you and I) is a requirement for divine blessings.

    I'll put this really simply: You cannot destroy ideas with force. All you can do is offer more appealing alternatives.




    Sell that to Tojo. Tell that to Hitler. Ask Stalin if his ideas were crushed with force. The communist ideas of the soviet union were crushed by the mere threat of force, I would beg to differ on this one.

    giant's idea of debate is to declare everyone, all their sources and ideas that disagree with his to be ignorant.



    There is already plenty of proof if this. Don't argue with him. giant has his blinders on and everything you post is just ignorant nonsense to him. He will you tell you so repeatedly. He will also insult your intelligence, question everything about your background, make repeated claims about you with regard to ignorance, racism, hatefulness, etc.



    Just take this post and make it a sticky. Whenever you see giant demonstrating one or all of these above, just ignore him. You can't discuss with someone who is wearing blinders. It isn't debate, it is attempting to argue someone through their own ignorance.

    Saddam was bad.

    911 perps were bad.

    Therefore Saddam = 911 perps.



    We'll supply the evidence later. Waydown the list after WMD.



    As someone said earlier: thugs always tend to end up together. And they don't ever oppose each other, no thug anywhere is ever a thug to another thug....no sir....






    Actually I think you're a perfect example of the converse of that. In the face of some interesting information you dumb down the discussion with your bogus analysis of people you don't agree with.



    People like you think you have all the answers so when something new pops up you dismiss it out of hand. You're incapable of dealing with new information because group think has locked you in.

    Gotta love those fake conservatives.



    Do any of you have anything of substance to add to the discussion? You know, something actually related to the thread topic and not your feelings of inadequacy?



    Didn't think so.



    Don't worry. I'm sure Limbaugh or Coulter will give you something to regurgitate soon enough.

These three have been know to put Fox News to shame in the realm of creative misleading sentences go. This newsmax (incredible source) is a secondhand rehash of a WSJ editorial?, article? Who knows because Newsmax didn't source it.



    Thanks I needed a




    NewsMax is no worse than the NYT.

    I read the article. There's no direct link there. It's mostly speculation on the writer's part.



    Another feeble attempt to justify the unjustifiable. Bush's stupid war in Iraq.





    Besides if this was true it would be big news and everywhere.

    Is this going to be one of those threads where I have to run down the information to you because you're not able to do it yourself?

    i still say we need to attack and make regime change in florida...



    florida had AQ operatives living there, florida allowed those operatives to be trained to fly planes, most likely at a school certified by the state of florida...heck, florida even rigged the 2000 elections



    why haven't we yet, as a country, dealt with the evil empire that is florida??



    i mean, if an AQ bad man being in baghdad is reason to link AQ to sadam, then many AQ bad men living and training in florida should also link AQ to jeb bush

    Gosh, WSJ makes it so easy to find them getting creative with information:

    Quote:

    As others have reported, at the time of the summit Shakir was working at the Kuala Lumpur airport, having obtained the job through an Iraqi intelligence agent at the Iraqi embassy.



    But what is really known about the embassy employee?

    Quote:

    ...a job he claimed to have obtained through an Iraqi embassy employee.



    From the Feith memo.



    Of course, without the embellishment (in this case, stating as fact something that is not fact) it just doesn't look as sinister as the WSJ would like.
