Something to be thankful for today… there wasn’t one single terrorist attack during the Bush administration

Former Bush press secretary Dana Perino went on FOX News yesterday to talk about the recent incidents at Fort Hood, and, in the process, took the opportunity to remind America that there were no terrorist attacks under the Bush administration.

That’s right. The 9/11 attacks, and the anthrax attacks which followed them apparently took place during Democratic administrations. Here’s her quote, if you can believe it: “We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term.”

[note: Perino, just a few days before this, was nominated by President Obama to serve on the Broadcasting Board of Governors, the group responsible for overseeing the Voice of America, Radio Free Europe and all other non-military broadcasts made by the U.S. federal government.]

    I bet if you shaved Dana Perino’s hair you would find devil horns, and if she took off her shoes you’d find cloven hoofs. Reliable sources say she smells of sullfur…

    Dana Perino was always known as the Bush/Cheney White House “SPOKES LIAR.”
    Do we expect anything less?

    Wow, that is fucking scary. Thank goodness she was on Fox so that they quickly pointed out her mistake to her.

    If mass shootings count as terrorist attacks, there were plenty under the bush administration.

    It’s weird the extent to which the Republicans are determined to categorize this mass shooting as “terrorism” and use it against Obama. Maybe they’re getting ready for Cheney’s 2012 run against Obama.

    This is how far gone the Republican mind is. They impulsively spin things so hard they eventually go right out into outer space. You can’t trust people this deluded to keep anyone safe from anything. They are too detached from reality to be effective in any way. That was what we saw for the 8 years they controlled everything, absolute failure and ineffectiveness.

    By the way, Mark, by Perino’s standard, the Beltway Sniper shootings were another terrorist attack which occurred during the Bush Administration, which Perino strangely forgets. That event didn’t occur over the period of several minutes, but over a period of three weeks, effectively terrorizing millions of people in the DC-Northern VA area back in 2002.

    All that being said, Dana Perino is hot!..horns, hoofs, and all.

    Perino simply misspoke. And all the (D)s which appeared next to the names of Republican officials caught breaking laws and/or for habitually committing otherwise immoral acts…those were all misprints. And the footage of previous marches inserted into coverage of under-attended Fox backed rallies was an editing error. It’s all a series of accidents. There is no reason to believe it represents a pattern of deliberate deception and an attempt to manipulate simple minds.

    Aw, hell. You go 10 minutes without seeing one of those “never forget” signs on a car window, and look what happens.

    To be fair to Perino, her statement may actually be closer to the truth than the rest of us would ever like to think. Recently released detail from the flight data recorder found at the Pentagon and site of the alleged Flight 77 crash shows the cockpit door was never opened during flight. See the report:

    9/11: PENTAGON AIRCRAFT HIJACK IMPOSSIBLE
    FLIGHT DECK DOOR CLOSED FOR ENTIRE FLIGHT

    (PilotsFor911Truth.org) – Newly decoded data provided by an independent researcher and computer programmer from Australia exposes alarming evidence that the reported hijacking aboard American Airlines Flight 77 was impossible to have existed. A data parameter labeled “FLT DECK DOOR”, cross checks with previously decoded data obtained by Pilots For 9/11 Truth from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) through the Freedom Of Information Act.

    On the morning of September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 77 departed Dulles International Airport bound for Los Angeles at 8:20 am Eastern Time. According to reports and data, a hijacking took place between 08:50:54 and 08:54:11[1] in which the hijackers allegedly crashed the aircraft into the Pentagon at 09:37:45. Reported by CNN, according to Ted Olson, wife Barbara Olson had called him from the reported flight stating, “…all passengers and flight personnel, including the pilots, were herded to the back of the plane by armed hijackers…”[2]. However, according to Flight Data provided by the NTSB, the Flight Deck Door was never opened in flight. How were the hijackers able to gain access to the cockpit, remove the pilots, and navigate the aircraft to the Pentagon if the Flight Deck Door remained closed?[3]

    Founded in August 2006, Pilots For 9/11 Truth is a growing organization of aviation professionals from around the globe. The organization has analyzed Data provided by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) for the Pentagon Attack, the events in Shanksville, PA and the World Trade Center attack. The data does not support the government story. The NTSB/FBI refuse to comment. Pilots For 9/11 Truth do not offer theory or point blame at this point in time. However, there is a growing mountain of conflicting information and data in which government agencies and officials along with Mainstream Media refuse to acknowledge. Pilots For 9/11 Truth Core member list continues to grow.

    I don’t remember Sept 11, 2001 being on anybody elses watch, other than George W. Bush and Dick Cheney’s Adminstration.
    Regardless of what the real story is?

    The first year of a presidency doesn’t count. Plus, he was on vacation when he was warned that it would happen.

    There’s a poll out today that shows a majority of people in Ohio would rather have Bush back as President than Obama. We live in a nation of idiots. Most of them probably think that 911 happened during the Obama administration.
