Al Qaeda Connection (video): Al Qaeda in Yemen declared war on US days

Stupid Reactionary Rules from American Authorities
New rules for passengers…don’t stop terrorists: After passenger saves a plane from terrorist bombing– new rules require heroic passengers to stay seated during last hour of flight
12/27/09 Obama’s Homeland Security Sec. Janet Napolitano says the “system worked” (video) [update 12/28/09: Napolitano Now Says Terror Prevention System ‘Failed Miserably’]
12/27/09 Another attempt on a Sunday’s Detroit-bound flight by another Nigerian?:
The same Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines flight that was attacked on Christmas Day saw another security scare Sunday after a confrontation with a Nigerian who spent about an hour locked in the bathroom.
12/28/09 Al-Qaeda Takes Responsibility For Detroit Terror Attempt
12/28/09 Al-Qaeda says plane attack was a response to U.S. attack on group in Yemen (H/t: Drudge)
12/28/09 Finally: After 3 days, Obama gives his flaccid comment on Detroit terrorism: His speech is perfunctory:
Obama doesn’t bother to wear a tie. He hastily reads a belated statement describing the incident like a small-town sheriff’s deputy rather than the leader of the free world…not looking at the camera and directing his statements at our enemies.
Liberals believe most of their fellow citizens are benighted troglodytes [who would respond with] xenophobic hate-crimes…It wasn’t the threat of al Qaeda-trained bombers blowing up Detroit-bound planes that concerned them. Rather, liberals feared that Americans might blame the Obama administration for failing to protect them from terrorists or — perhaps even worse — demand action against the violent extremists who want to kill us all.
Time to grow a pair
These terrorists must be treated as terrorists and must be killed before they kill us. Here is a list of Islamic attacks since 9/11.
Coward, silly rules are not going to keep us free and alive. These Islamic terrorists hate us because they want to hate us. The Crusades? Ah, yes, the Crusades were started by the Muslims with their prophet Muhammad in 630 A.D. The European Crusades started in 1096 A.D. to stop the Islamic Imperialism. United States did not exist then. (Another thing your teacher hid from you.)
Political correctness and utopian rationalization are blinding us, and will take us down.
