The U.S. is more secure after the war against Iraq

2004-10-25 by kathy@truthisbetter.org

A Huge Cache of Explosives was never secured after the U.S. invaded Iraq and has disappeared into the hands of terrorists. President Bush pulled the Special Forces troops that were chasing Bin Ladin in Afghanistan, and moved them to Iraq, allowing Osama Bin Ladin to escape.

Former chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix says the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq has stimulated terrorism. The Iraqi war inspires new terrorist threats against the United States and its soldiers. The occupation of Iraq has become "a potent global recruitment pretext" for al-Qa'ida according to a pro-war institute.

GW Bush is strong on fighting terrorism

2004-08-29 by kathy@turhisbetter.org

yet, The Bush administration has rejected military plans for attacking al-Qaida masterminds, costing hundreds of lives in Iraq, and has not funded first responders or port and border security critical to U.S. security. Prior to 9/11 the GW Bush administration, according to its own chieft anti-terrorism czar, did little to fight terrorists or Al Qaeda, ignored CIA briefings regarding Al Qaeda's plan to use planes as bombs, and ignored the Warren Rudman report on terrorism. Richard Clark, registered Republican who worked as terrorism expert under 3 Republican Presidents, says that the Bush administration after 9-11 allowed Bin Ladin to escape.

Bush has failed to stop nuclear spread.

The 9/11 attack against the U.S. could not have been prevented or predicted

2004-05-30 by kathy@truthisbetter.org

The chairman of the independent commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks says it should have been prevented. The Bi-partison Hart-Rudman Report was given to the White House in Jan. 2001 and its members personally warned President Bush five days prior to 9/11. CIA reports warned in August of Al-Qaeda plans to hi-jack airplanes. An FBI translator, Siebel Edmond said that many FBI documents revealed as early as February 2001, that persons inside the US were plotting suicide bombing missions of major US cities, yet no actions were taken. The Ashcroft Justice department has retroactively classified as secret even her public testimony to prevent it from being known. One of the 9/11 widows is suing the Bush administration for deliberately allowing 9/11 to happen.

GW Bush supports Fire Fighters and other First Responders.

2004-05-11 by kathy@truthisbetter.org

Harold Schaitberger, President of the International Firefighters Association said Mar 3, 2004, "The fact is Bush's actions have resulted in fire stations closing in communities around the country. Two-thirds of America's fire departments remain under-staffed because Bush is failing to enforce a new law that was passed with bipartisan support in Congress that would put more fire fighters in our communities. President Bush's budget proposes to cut Homeland Security Department funding for first responders by $700 million for next year and cuts funding for the FIRE Act, a grant program that helps fire departments fund equipment needs, 33 percent by $250 million. In addition, state and local programs for homeland security purposes were reduced $200 million."
