    The surviving Boston bomber has been charged with using a “weapon of mass destruction,” in this case, an Improvised Explosive Device, AKA IED. If I remember correctly, there were no weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq, but there were daily reports of US troops being killed by IEDs. As Orwell so correctly pointed out, whoever controls the language controls the thinking.

    Remember who pick up seats in both houses of congress and won the presidency?it wasn’t the man with the magic underwear.
    Your party is yesterdays news.They have splintered into sever minor parties of radical nuts.

  • Chriscee

    I know who was president at the time of 9/11. And I also know that Billy (THE BJ KING..allowed Bin Laden to get away..not once..but twice.) And I can get the quotes of democrats…who thought Saddam had WMD’s in Iraq as well.

    I can get them for you in a snap..if you’d like…just let me know.

    If Clinton the BJ king had done his job..instead of being an adulterer….maybe he himself would have captured bin laden and 9/11 might not of happened.

    Once again..LIBERALS FAILED.

  • Chriscee

    “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.”
    –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.”
    –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

    “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.”
    –Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

    “He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983.”
    –Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

    “[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
    — Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

    “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
    -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    “Hussein has … chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies.”
    — Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

    “There is no doubt that … Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
    — Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

    “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them.”
    — Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

    “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
    — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”
    — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
    — Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
    — Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

    “I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
    — Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

    “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years … We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”
    — Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

    “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do”
    — Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

    “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members … It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
    — Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction.”
    — Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    “Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real…”
    — Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

    Both parties thought Saddam had WMD’s.

  • RedbarSoup

    I guess you forgot how Saddam even came into power huh? Yeah be an idiot and just blame EVERYTHING on liberals and not conservatives/Republicans too. I wonder why Democrats thought they had WMDS…hmmmm because the President (R) and Vice President (R) was telling him he did. Saddam came into power Before Bush son from ANOTHER Republican. So keep going on ahead and being an idiot and just blame the United States problems ALL on Liberals….and you talk about liberals not holding themselves accountable….

  • Chriscee

    Just like the liberals to DIS someone’s religion..but GOD forbid if we call people like the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad or Nidal Malik Hasan — Islamic Jihadists who want to kill Americans all in the name of Allah.

  • Chriscee

    President (D) and Vice President (D) knew long before republicans were president that WMD’s existed in Iraq…and the (D) president and vice president did nothing….Clinton continued to IGNORE the intel..and continued his adultery with Monica.

    Once again..LIBERALS FAILED.

    Seniors Get Hung Up In Health Care Scams

    Law enforcement agencies are reporting a spike in health insurance scams across the country, many of which are preying on the public’s confusion over the massive changes taking place in the nation’s health care system.

    Thanks to Obamacare!!

  • Zeus

    Just for anyone who is unaware, Redbarsoup has been caught posting HOAX Internet stories more than once. Nothing he says should be taken seriously.

  • usa8888

    The extremely uneducated right wing old woman living in Colorado (Chriscee) just said the suspects were motivated by religion–certainly not the Muslim religioun because it does not teach this. In fact, al qaeda, the taliban, etc are thugs and terrorists who are very gullible and believe anything. In a slighly different way, the gullibilty aspect is similar to the gullible people who are motivated by Rush Slimebaugh and Glen Beck..

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–face it–you lost big time in the elections and your prevarications won’t change this…..

  • Chriscee

    I don’t give 2 craps at who won and who lost….but I am going to concentrate on the next elections and I’m going to watch the democrats FALL FLAT ON THEIR FACES!!

  • Zeus

    Chriscee:

    You realize you are just playing into that teenage moron 8888’s hands when you keep responding to him. He’s just a rash that will never go away if you keep scratching it. Ratboy is one of the few who is smart enough to just ignore him.

  • Ratboy

    Ratboy, SMART? What you talk in about Willis??? :shock:

  • Zeus

    Mr. Nielson Ratings:

    Dude, keep it classy. Don’t sink to their level. It’s unbecoming of a conservative.

  • Zeus

    Ratboy:

    I didn’t say you were smart, just “smart enough”. :)

    Russian officials had asked about older bombing suspect
    A senior congressional aide privy to the Boston Marathon terror investigation confirmed Saturday that the FBI had been warned about alleged bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev as far back as 2011, when his apparently suspicious activities prompted Russian authorities keeping close surveillance on militant Islamic groups in the Caucuses region of the former Soviet Union to contact US counter-terrorism officials about him.

    The 26-year-old suspected terrorist, who was killed in a firefight with police in Watertown early Friday morning, traveled to Russia from Boston several times in recent years, according to multiple US officials who have reviewed his passport file – including an extended stay in 2012.

    The alleged bomber’s uncle, Alvi Tsarnaev, said in an interview with the Globe that the nephew visited his father in the restive Russian province of Dagestan, which neighbors war-torn Chechnya.

    But Alvi Tsarnaev said he did not know who else his nephew may have been involved with while he was overseas.

    The apparent alarms sounded about the older of the two suspected bombers two years ago are raising new questions about whether the Marathon attack could have been prevented.

    “If the FBI lost track of him, why wasn’t he more scrutinized?” asked the congressional aide, who said oversight committees are seeking answer from counter-terrorism officials. “Who was the guy talking to when he went over to Russia? Was he getting training over there?

    A senior congressional aide privy to the Boston Marathon terror investigation confirmed Saturday that the FBI had been warned about alleged bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev as far back as 2011, when his apparently suspicious activities prompted Russian authorities keeping close surveillance on militant Islamic groups in the Caucuses region of the former Soviet Union to contact US counter-terrorism officials about him.

    The 26-year-old suspected terrorist, who was killed in a firefight with police in Watertown early Friday morning, traveled to Russia from Boston several times in recent years, according to multiple US officials who have reviewed his passport file – including an extended stay in 2012.

    The alleged bomber’s uncle, Alvi Tsarnaev, said in an interview with the Globe that the nephew visited his father in the restive Russian province of Dagestan, which neighbors war-torn Chechnya.

    But Alvi Tsarnaev said he did not know who else his nephew may have been involved with while he was overseas.

    The apparent alarms sounded about the older of the two suspected bombers two years ago are raising new questions about whether the Marathon attack could have been prevented.

    “If the FBI lost track of him, why wasn’t he more scrutinized?” asked the congressional aide, who said oversight committees are seeking answer from counter-terrorism officials. “Who was the guy talking to when he went over to Russia? Was he getting training over there?

    “The FBI had this guy on the radar and somehow he fell off” the official added, who like the others were not authorized to speak publicly. “We heard for several days leading up to this there was no intelligence. Now we know there could have been intelligence.”

    The FBI acknowledged Friday night that a foreign government had asked the US for information about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, based on information that he was a follower of “radical Islam.” In response, the FBI investigated and interviewed Tamerlan and family members. “The FBI did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign,” the bureau said. On Saturday, the FBI said it would have no further comment.

    Tsarnaev’s brother and alleged co-conspirator in the bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was captured by police Friday night in Watertown. He is hospitalized “serious but stable” condition and not yet able to communicate, Governor Deval Patrick told reporters today.
