‘We can sustain another terrorist attack’

As a patriotic American, I hope the Washington Post über-journalist misquoted
President Obama in his upcoming book discussing the president’s thinking behind
the war on terrorism. Reading advance excerpts earlier today, I came across the
following quotation attributed to the president:


“We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything
we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever … we
absorbed it and we are stronger.”

How dare the president opine that “we can absorb a terrorist attack”? This
isn’t a gravel spill or an overturned apple cart in which no one gets hurt. No,
we’re talking about an act of terror, an act of murder in which innocent people
are killed simply because they woke up one day and decided to drive to work, take
their children to school or otherwise go about their daily lives.

On Sept. 11, 2001, 3,000 innocent Americans were murdered, killed, incinerated
and fell from the sky due to an act of terrorism.

“We can absorb a terrorist attack,” says President Obama. No, sir,
your job is to do everything you can to protect us all regardless of our race,
religion, party or any other affiliation. You are our commander in chief and
you have been presented a sacred trust to protect us from senseless acts of
terrorism.
