A lot of people who oppose the Iraq War say the Afghanistan War was justified, but I'm not so sure: it wasn't Afghanistan who attacked us, and even if they were hiding Osama, the thing to do would have been to have him extradited.
Or maybe 9-11 wasn't the beginning after all. We know the Iraq War was being planned before 9-11, and probably the concurrent crackdown on constitutional liberties as well. The Bush cabal was just waiting for a Pearl Harbor-type incident to implement its plans.
I wonder how they are going to explain away the newest reports - the British found explosives. See here. The video announcing the finds is here.
"However, we must be realistic. The threat from terrorism is real, it is here, it is deadly and it is enduring."
