U.S. Can’t Protect All Targets, Chertoff Says

Congress and the American public must accept that the government cannot protect every possible target against attack if it wants to avoid fulfilling Al Qaeda’s goal of bankrupting the nation, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told a Senate committee Tuesday.

Osama bin Laden, Mr. Chertoff said, has made it clear that scaring the United States into an unsustainable spending spree is one of his aims. In a 2004 video, Mr. bin Laden, the Qaeda leader, spoke of “bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy.

(Kinda like what the Republican party is doing? Hmmmmm.....Al Qaeda is a terrorist organization. Al Qaeda seeks to bankrupt the United States. Republicans ARE bankrupting the United States. Therefore, Republicans are terrorists.)
