"We fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here"

Hey sexy gang do you remember when the Prez said these words?

"We fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here"

and

There is only one course of action against them: to defeat them abroad before they attack us at home.

Of course you do, it has been a defining aspect of the whole "war on terror". Well I guess all of us who said that line of reasoning was absolute bullshit (like everything else about the war in Iraq) were correct.

Authorities have disrupted planning by foreign terrorists for an attack on New York City tunnels, two law enforcement officials said today.

Now I have a few problems with these recent terrorist plots. First is the first plot was more bullshit. So why was it revealed.

This recent terrorist plot why was it revealed? If you recall running up to the 2004 election it appeared that when ever Bush's approval ratings took a nose dive a new terror alert was issued and his approval ratings would go up. Would the administration use terror alerts for political reasons? You bet they would! Their man Tom Ridge former director of Homeland Security said so.

So why are these new plots coming out in the open now even when there doesn't seem to be much proof that they are a legitimate threat? Could it be Bush's bottoming out approval ratings? And why aren't they using those stupid terror alerts if those terror plots are a real threat? I thought those terror alerts had a purpose other than to scare the beejesus out of the population and make everyone look to their radiant defiant leader?

So what was he saying about we are fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them here?
