Exceptional revisionism there.

If I remember correctly we did catch and convict the folks that attacked the WTC prior. We also did keep OBL from doing much of anything else for a good bit of time but considering he was not an Enemy of the State until after 9/11 your hindsight is a bit optimistic. Who should we be going after now that MIGHT pose a major threat in a few years? Would that even be legal? Would it be ethical? Would it be the American way?
