MESSAGE BOARD
How well is the fight against Al Qaeda progressing?

A year after the Sept. 11 attacks, questions persist as to why US intelligence and military operations haven't been able to capture Osama bin Laden and dissolve Al Qaeda terror cells. How well do you believe the US is doing in its effort to eradicate Al Qaeda? Have sufficient measures been taken to stomp out the possibility of future terror attacks?

It's pretty pointless to ask this question. The average idiot can only guess what the government is actually doing and how effective it is. One thing is pretty obvious, Tom Ridge is the wrong man for his job. We need someone who can get this job done, not an impotent bureaucrat. John McCaine comes to mind as a good replacement.

I think we are lucky to have Georgie in there as our president. If Al Gore was there he would have wanted to do the happy dance around the peace tree after September 11. I say we just put Afghanistan out of thier misery and blow the whole damn country up. As for Osama Bin Laden, he thinks he is Mr. Tough Guy he's just a wuss. He blows stuff up and then hides for months. If he had real balls he would come face the music, I know I have something to say to him. How are we doing with our war on Terrorism, not too good, but does anyone have any feasible ideas besides blowing up the Middle East and that is not too reasonable? Clinton should have taken care of Osama after the Cole but no he sat around wasting his time with Monica instead of doing some good, at least Bush is taking some action. and that is my $.02

I can't believe how ignorant and stupid so many of you sound, the whole die hard take on things is sickening and you just sound IGNORANT, are there any educated people out there??

We haven't done enough. We should be bombing everyone that even remotely supports terrorism.

I think we're terrorizing ourselves. Every sporting event is preceded by a security report. Every concert, a security report. I'm surprised not to see a security report before the news comes on. I think the US media is doing a great job of terrorizing the US, we barely need terrorist to keep the fear rolling.

I think the "war" is going according to plan (Bush did say that it could take years) but the plan needs to change. It needs to be expanded to address the disease and not just the symptoms. There will always be a threat as long as Middle Eastern nations are governed by dictators. History shows that dictators aren't overthrown without profound bloodshed. The media unfortunately doesn't slant its stories toward this truth. It's a joke and a waste of front page space to constantly read things like another possible terrorist was indicted, or a few more assets were frozen. Oh I feel so much safer now. And I agree with Angelica, that for those not directly affected, it is embarrassing that 9/11 remembrance is just another media extravaganza rather than a solemn occasion. On a positive note, our servicemen and women our doing a tremendous job!

Has war,or fighting ever solved anything?? we need to sit back and think how we all felt after 9-11 and see if we need to cause more pain to ourselves and the rest of the world!!

We ought NOT to be threatening Iraq with war. War is terror no matter which side starts it or continue it. I am fairly certain that what GHW Bush could not do (destroy Saddam) is driving the present Bush into a blind rush into terrorism with a US label.

Gary , Clinton


I don't know. We seem to receive conflicting reports from the media. I think that a lot of information should stay under a tight lid until after the fact: because it gives these evil people the edge when there is too much information exposed to the public.
