Sen. Joe Lieberman warns the United States will likely face a terrorist attack in 2009 and feels Republican presidential nominee John McCain will be better prepared to handle the imminent attack than Democratic rival Barack Obama.
"Our enemies will test the new president early,” Lieberman says during on interview Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“Remember the truck bombing of the World Trade Center happened in the first year of the Clinton administration, and 9/11 happened in the first year of the Bush administration," he notes.
Now wait a cotton-pickin' mintute! All this time, we've been assured that Bush's invasion and occupation of Iraq was launched to PREVENT terrorists from attacking the US. Yes, the hows of this process were a little hazy -- I recall something about Iraq being "flypaper" that would somehow lull all who hated Americans into directing their fire at National Guard volunteers instead of flying more jets into New York.
And now Lieberman says it was all for nothing?
