In the aftermath of 9/11, the Bush/Cheney administration turned the nation’s focus to dangers of terrorism and created an impetus which could only be maintained by finding another war to keep people believing Republicans were the saviors of America. CIA Chief Leon Panetta in an article appearing in the New Yorker claims former vice president Dick Cheney thinks “he smells blood in the water on the national security issue” and “it’s almost a little bit gallows politics. when you read behind it, it’s almost as if he’s wishing that this country would be attacked again in order to make his point. I think that’s dangerous politics.” Unfortunately, the chain man is not the only one with that thought in mind. Tune into Fox News or Rush Limbaugh to hear the latest drum beat of fear and war.
There are American who go to sleep every night praying to God their nation was safe from harm. There are others who pray to God that America suffers another terrorist attack in order to prove their point that Barack Obama is a soft hearted liberal who appeases forces of terrorism. These are the sick people who have transformed the Republican party into a center of hate and fear.
