Ask the Victims of 9/11 if George W. Bush "Kept Us Safe"

Robert Creamer | Posted 09.19.2015 | Politics
Robert Creamer

In the GOP debate, Jeb Bush made the outrageous statement that his brother George W. Bush "Kept us safe." Here is a news flash for Jeb: Bush did not begin his term on September 12, 2001. The worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor occurred on his watch. And it occurred after he had ignored intelligence warnings before 9/11. It is outrageous that the Bush crowd would have the audacity to say they "kept us safe" after presiding over the 9/11 debacle and the inept, ineffective, ideologically driven response that followed. The best ways to keep America safe are never to forget just what George W. Bush did to America and to keep Jeb Bush and the entire Bush gang a "safe" distance away from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and the levers of political power.

The depth of Prince Salman's ties to organizations linked to al Qaeda left little doubt in our minds about his dedication to the jihadist cause, but Prince Salman's extremist connections are not merely a matter of historical record and curiosity.

The demise of Osama bin Laden is obviously welcome, but there is far more to be done. Nowhere is this more pressing than with our nation's refusal to demand that the Saudi government accept culpability for supporting the terrorists who attacked us.
