Feingold Still Oblivious

Is there nothing this man won't stoop to? Taking stock of our national security
After 9-11, our top priority must be defeating the terrorists who attacked us and their allies. Unfortunately, the vast majority of our brave troops aren't fighting al-Qaida or other terrorist networks. They are in Iraq, a country that had no connection to the 9-11 attacks.
I guess Zarqawi wasn't really in Iraq, and we've all been hoodwinked by the media.
Meanwhile, the U.S. presence in Iraq is being used as a recruiting tool for terrorists from around the world.
It doesn't matter what we do, they're going to be "recruiting" sick, twisted individuals to kill us.
To get the fight against terrorism back on track, I have called for a timetable to redeploy our troops out of Iraq. Redeploying our large troop presence will allow Iraqis to take ownership of their own country, and allow the U.S. to refocus its resources on the threat posed by al-Qaida and other global terrorist networks.
He means "cut and run" and let the Iraqis fend for themselves against the animals. For good or ill, there are still terrorists streaming into Iraq, killing innocent civilians, fellow Muslims. Better there than here! I notice he didn't mention the securing the border, that we are told is leaking like a sieve with more than just "those looking for a better life".
For instance, the government can and should wiretap suspected terrorists in the U.S. and overseas, but we should do so without breaking the law, which requires court-approved warrants for domestic wiretaps in most cases.
Is he kidding? If I'm not mistaken, the wiretaps were on calls coming from outside the U.S. I honestly don't believe the NSA was listening to Granny's recipe for Irish Stew.
Five years after the tragic events of 9-11, the fight against terrorism has gotten off track, but Americans are still united in their resolve to protect our country and our freedoms.
Sadly, I do not see the unity he's talking about. I see some serious divisions across, not only the country, but the political spectrum.
