Scott Butterworth / Washington Post: White House: Failed plane attack an attempted act of terrorism
A Nigerian national, claiming to be acting on behalf of al-Qaeda, is in custody in Detroit after allegedly attempting to light an incendiary device aboard a Northwest Airlines flight after it landed Friday, federal officials said. [...]
U.S. Rep. John Murtha told reporters Tuesday that he isn’t convinced al-Qaida is still a threat to national security.
Murtha said he visited Kuwait and Afghanistan during Thanksgiving and approves of the military’s strategy, but expressed a need to measure progress in Afghanistan.
“I don’t agree there is a threat to national security,” Murtha said, while not ruling out the possibility that he could be wrong about al-Qaida’s influence. “They keep saying they’ve defeated al-Qaida.”
NOTE: Murtha is a Marine hating moron. Also, who is the "they" and the "them" this moron is yakking about?
ABC News says that the terrorist attck in Detroit isn't al Qaeda: Man Attempts to Set Off Explosives on Detroit-Bound Airplane (BUT) Suspect Claims al Qaeda Terrorism Link, but FBI, Investigators Are Suspicious.
Tell that to Murtha. Moron. Isn't he do to be booted out?

"We who live in free market societies believe that growth, prosperity and ultimately human fulfillment, are created from the bottom up, not the government down. Only when the human spirit is allowed to invent and create, only when individuals are given a personal stake in deciding economic policies and benefiting from their success -- only then can societies remain economically alive, dynamic, progressive, and free. Trust the people. This is the one irrefutable lesson of the entire postwar period contradicting the notion that rigid government controls are essential to economic development." -- Ronald Reagan, Sept. 29, 1981
Trust The People. Think about that.
