Your Vote Is Invaluable: Use It Wisely!
Remember when you vote today that, despite their flaws (And brother, I've got some doozies that I want addressed!), who will protect this country best.
Excerpted from the Washington Times:
LONDON -- One of the top al Qaeda operatives known to have been captured in Britain appeared in court amid heavy security yesterday for sentencing in a plot to bomb the New York Stock Exchange, the International Monetary Fund headquarters in Washington and to use a dirty bomb in London.
Dhiren Barot, 34, started plotting six years ago for a "memorable black day for the enemies of Islam," prosecutor Edmund Lawson said at the hearing, which was punctuated by a dramatic moment when prosecutors showed a March 2001 video shot while Barot was in New York. The camera zooms in to the World Trade Center and a man is then heard mimicking the sound of an explosion.
The criminal plot was to carry out massive explosions in Britain and in the United States, and was meant to kill "hundreds if not thousands of innocent people without warning," Mr. Lawson said.
Do we really want America to look like this?
