View Diary: Is America Comfortable With 50 Terror Attacks Per Decade? (192 comments)

  •  Ha. Two points. (13+ / 0-)

    First, it was made eminently clear to you that messenger-shooting has nothing to do with the issue at hand, yet you continuously reprise the theme.  Relentlessly one might say.

    Second, I'm not comfortable with terror attascks. Ever hear of the Tsarnaev brothers, who carried out a highly successful terrorist attack (that they would have gotten away with if it weren't for the security cams at Lord & Taylor) despite the full deployment of the ham-handed national security state apparatus that you adore?  But you keep "hacking" this peo-police state shit up.  Somehow I doubt that would be your posture under a Republican administration.  Does the letter after a politician's name really change so much?

    •  Indeed, the Tsarnaevs, who were watched by (5+ / 0-)

      the FBI after being tipped by the Russkis, and who apparently have  [tinfoil optional] ties to the CIA:</strong>

      One of the many unexplained (at least not officially) anomalies of the persons claimed to have carried out the Boston Marathon bombings is the presence of  key CIA figure in the direct family of the accused brothers.

      Ruslan Tsarnaev, the outspoken uncle of the brothers was married to Samantha A. Fuller until 2004. Samantha’s father is Graham Fuller, the senior CIA person who was the architect the Afghan Islamic fundamentalist Mujahideen war against the Soviets. He is also involved in creating a global jihad network, presumably acting on behalf of CIA interests.

      Ruslan Tsarnaev, who changed his name to Ruslan Tsarni, lives in a posh Washington DC suburb of Bethesda Maryland. He has worked in the past for companies tied to Dick Cheney’s Halliburton as well as a “consultant” in Kazakhstan with the State Department’s USAID which has been identified as a CIA front. [1] Take it all in: The two brothers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, accused though never proven in a court of law to have been responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings, had an uncle, the same uncle who agreed to bury the remains of the one dead brother. This uncle was married to the daughter of Graham Fuller, one of the most important CIA architects of using Islamic Jihadists/terrorists against the USSR during the Cold War and after, throughout Central Asia, including Chechnya and Kazakhstan...

      I missed that part, perceived this diary to be simply another pov in contrast with others that have been posted. So who is shooting the messenger?

      This is why we can't have rational discussions on this site.

        about "the Traitor Snowden".

        That's the messenger-shooting being referred to.

            Read the fucking first line of the diary:  It's not about the fourth amendment, it's about Snowden.

            It is not possible to have a conversation, let alone a meaningful conversation, with people who drag red herrings all over the place to distract from the real issue.

            Our snoops are not legally authorized to snoop without legal authorization. Of course, if they were legally authorized to snoop without legal authorization, that would constitute legal authorization. Do you feel better yet?

                  and the diarist has every bit as much right to express his views as you or anyone else on this site.

            dating back months or years, particularly in unrelated diaries.

            I doubt he'd have a problem with mentioning a related diary, from the same diarist, posted yesterday.

            When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill...
