I seriously doubt partisan politics will have any effects on the safety of the American public. Whoever wins in '08, they still have to upheld the well beings of this country.

On the contrary, I feel less secure with the current Administrations. Even the State Department announced terror attacks shot up 25% world wide.

How's this for terror plots ??

NATIONAL SECURITY -- WITH BIN LADEN 'STRONGER THAN EVER,' U.S. OFFICIALS CONCEDE OVERESTIMATING DAMAGE DONE TO AL QAEDA: In the months after Sept. 11, President Bush declared victory over the man he once pledged to capture "dead or alive" and began turning his focus to Iraq. "I am deeply concerned about Iraq. ... I truly am not that concerned about [bin Laden]. ... He has no place to train his al Qaeda killers anymore," Bush said in 2002. The results have been predictable: as the U.S. has been mired in an Iraqi civil war, bin Laden has slipped away and is using his freedom to help al Qaeda resurge all over the Middle East. U.S. News reports this week that "bin Laden already has a safe haven in Pakistan -- and may be stronger than ever" as al Qaeda "retains the ability to organize complex, mass-casualty attacks and inspire others. ... Bin Laden and Zawahiri have been able to fill in the gaps between their megaplots with a rising stream of smaller-scale, homegrown attacks." Now well over five years after 9/11, some administration officials are conceding they may have been too hasty in declaring victory over bin Laden: "Privately, U.S. officials concede that they had overestimated the damage they had inflicted on al Qaeda's network. The captures of successive operational commanders, including 9/11 planner Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, amounted only to temporary setbacks; they were replaced with disturbing ease. 'We understand better how al Qaeda is withstanding the offensive that was launched against it in 2001 and later,' says a senior U.S. government official." Bush is using the rise of al Qaeda as fodder to promote his misguided escalation plan in Iraq. He now claims that al Qaeda has made Iraq a central front in the war on terror, but terrorists view Bush's Iraq strategy as more opportunity to launch attacks against U.S. troops. "Iraq has, of course, been an undeniable boon for al Qaeda, both as a battleground and a rallying cause," U.S. News adds.

Just saying "Republican" and "national security" in the same sentence is irony. More like a contradiction in terms.

The only people who 'foiled' anything were the moronic terrorist wannabes themselves. Their lack of operational security speaks for itself. Any kudos should go to the citizen for recognizing the material for what it was. Any attempt to assign credit beyond that individual is simple policheering spin. Naive at best, but certainly without merit.

Say what you will and i'm sure you will with all kinds of copying and pasting of regurgitated pro left hand ringing tissue paper to fit into your agenda or just your typical insults BUT...... NOT a single attack in 5+ years speaks volumes for itself. That fact is all one needs to point to. As citizens we are now more aware, more diligent and smarter, thanks in part to the patriot act, and ultimately we are safer just by definition. Any unwinding of what this administration has put into place will make us vulnerable again and i only hope that if the Dems get elected they will build upon our security not re-invent the wheel and tear it apart only to expose us in the process. But based on their history... no such luck. It will be committee after committee looking into what new committee is needed to create a new security committee .... an so on

Let me guess, you haven't heard the summary of the NIE this year or last? The absence of a "single attack" here only speaks to partisans; statistically it's meaningless. You do know the time gap between successive attacks on the WTC, right? And what about terrorist attacks on US and allied interests elsewhere since this reckless exercise in Iraq?

Try this experiment: Put earplugs in your ears. Monitor the number of tigers you see stalking you. Conclusion: Earplugs keep tigers away.
