    and erosion of rights and a trillion dollars on Homeland Security did exactly what to prevent the latest terrorist attacks?

    Nothing.

    We're creating more enemies and more terrorists with these policies.  We're not getting safer. We're becoming less safe with these wars. And we're sacrificing two hundred years of essential rights and we're draining the resources that are needed to have a decent quality of life.

    •  We cannot count how many terrorist (0+ / 0-)

      attacks were not done by people we have killed and operations we have disrupted. Obviously, if a drone attack prevents 3 future attacks, no one will ever be able to verify that. You know this (or certainly should). We do know that we've killed a lot of people who joined up with violent jihadist groups, and we know that those types of people eventually commit acts of mass murder. Do you think that the mentality that produced 9/11 no longer exists in the Middle East? You think that there are not people there who would like to kill you?
