Lamont tells Wallace:
Here you are talking about the failed terrorist plot today. It originated in Pakistan, goes through London, and here we have 132,000 of our bravest troops stuck in the middle of a civil war in Iraq.Well at least he didn't refer to the foiled airliner plot as "alleged" as Muslim groups and loony Lamont supporters in the U.S. continue to do.
what we ought to be doing is fighting the War on Terror in a serious way. I think we've gotten a little bit complacent, to tell you the truth. Maybe we've had a wake-up call in the last couple of days.
But, Liberals like Lamont have been insisting for a while now that the Iraq war is a distraction from the real danger which they claim is present in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
I have yet to hear one of them suggest that our troops in Iraq should have been sent to Pakistan instead. Nor have they offered one positive suggestion on how the problem in those Muslim nations should be addressed.
Nothing new there!
Lamont goes on:
We ought to be focused on homeland security. We ought to be focused on our ports, on our airports and public transportation, a lot of which you were talking about here today.Hello, hello, hello!!! If nothing else, the foiled plot which many Islamists and Lamont supporters claim is "alleged" demonstrates a victory for the cooperation among our allies in Britain and Pakistan and the intelligence methods like NSA monitoring and SWIFT financial monitoring that has caused so much opposition among Demcorats that support Lamont.
We also are much stronger when we work in concert with our allies, when we have shared intelligence. And I think that we've taken our eye off the ball there a little bit, and I think it's time to focus.
Less than 90 days to go before the November 7th Congressional elections. If you're planning to take a trip to London in the next year, who would you prefer to be in charge: Lamont and the Democrats or President Bush?
