Jakash, You are just showing your ignorance of how the rankings work. I've been commenting on the regular Trib articles for a while, thus have accumulated many likes. So if my ranking is what keeps you away. Says more about you than me

--From a desk top its not hard, but their are inconviences - can't see the article once you start commenting, when you want to go to the next article. you just can't go the Most Recent Ten. Getting used to it, but it isn't as good
The new blog is much better today.

GG, The Catholic church was absolutely wrong it its handling of its pedophile priests. However, the handling of gay choir director has absolutely nothing to do with that issue. The choir director being gay wasn't the cause of his firing. It was the fact that the gay choir director went and became married to another man that led to his firing.
--“But it shows the repeated warnings came before the famous top secret briefing - which has previously been reported - given to Bush on August 6 with the heading 'Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the U.S'.” – When?, Where? How? Names? – In other words – ACTIONABLE INTEL Ms Rice countered that the FBI had been given the task of looking into the report, airport authorities were informed, and that there was not much more the president and his top officials could have done. She blamed the failure to catch the al-Qaida hijackers before the attack on long-term bureaucratic barriers which prevented the sharing of information between the CIA and FBI. "Secretary [Norman] Mineta, the secretary of transportation, had no idea of the threat. The administrator of the FAA [Federal Aviation Administration], responsible for security on our airlines, had no idea. Yes, the attorney general was briefed, but there was no evidence of any activity by him about this," Jamie Gorelick, a Democratic commissioner, told Ms Rice.” - The same Jamie Gorelick that set-up the “Chinese Wall” that prevented the CIA and FBI from sharing information. (Also, the same Jamie Gorelick that was on the Fannie Mae BOD when that fiasco was occurring) The head of DOT, FBI, and CIA – all hold overs from the Clinton administration. "The disclosure that Jamie Gorelick, a member of the September 11 commission, was personally responsible for instituting a key obstacle to cooperation between law enforcement and intelligence operations... In the memo, Ms. Gorelick ordered Mr. Freeh and Ms. White to follow information-sharing procedures that “go beyond what is legally required,” in order to avoid “any risk of creating an unwarranted appearance” that the Justice Department was using Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants, instead of ordinary criminal investigative procedures, in an effort to undermine the civil liberties of terrorism suspects. ....At issue was the oft-noted wall of separation that prevented counterterrorism agents and federal prosecutors from communicating with one another prior to September 11. Read more: “Could the 9/11 attack have been stopped, had the Bush team reacted with urgency to the warnings contained in all of those daily briefs? We can’t ever know. And that may be the most agonizing reality of all.” – From your New York Times OP-ED, the NEW YORK TIMES, they even say that don’t know if 9-11 could have been prevented. What next Kippy, that Bush was in on it? You've gone from Kool-Aid to Tin Foil
And I see you dodged the question on why anyone should believe what you have to say. Here's an article, the math is probably over your head, but just read the narrative.
Because John Kerry was following one of these "scientific" climate change models and it was no where near correct. And neither is one that AlGore was relying on (unless the Noble Prize scientist developed his own) was wrong and Michael Mann's hockey stick is a bunch of horse hockey. Where are the correct models that have predicted all the doom and gloom? Keep chugging the Kool-Aid. Give you a hint - follow the money.
GregJ, You should be able to post comments to that thread if you use that short-cut that Wendy, the web guru :), posted on the Transition Time article.
Good for Scientific American. Thinking Americans consider your position Kool-Aid drinking. Good for the circle jerk of global warming believers that peer review each other's articles so they can keep the mother's milk of gov't money flowing their way. I have a better than average understanding of statistics and I can see the flaws in the models. Have you ever built multi-variable computer models? What are your qualifications that we should believe you?
First of all, the airports were closed down fro a few days and then yes security measures were increased. It generally happens that way after the first time. Be specific, what should they have done with that intel? What increased security measures should have been taken based on the intel? As for pinning something on a Democratic president, I don't think Clinton has ever been blamed for the first WTC bombings in Feb, 1993. Your hatred of Bush just blinds you from facing facts. The IRS did not TARGET liberal groups, they examined them, but they were not TARGETD. Liberal groups paperwork also made it thru the system at a much faster speed than did Conservative groups. Keep chugging the Kool-Aid
Not to pile on, but another flaw is when you want to comment, you can't just scroll up to the article and double-check what EZ has said.

With all of the frustration, now I know why the article before this was entitled "Take a Chill Pill, Folks". Maybe some special brownies are in order. :)

Beth, You missed a big one - continuous deficits over $500 billion.
Scientific consensus is false. Science is not consensus, its facts. Fact is global warming models are wrong. Since we are about 18 months from Al Gore doomsday where the world will not be able to turn back, do you care to put a little cash on this that in Jan, 2016 the world will not cease to exist. "A huge majority of Americans support regulating carbon from power plants. And they’re even willing to pay for it." - Carbon is already regulated and the American people are already paying for it. And then you cite Rush. A guy you would never cite otherwise and if someone else cited Rush on something you would ridicule them, now you think it is correct to cite Rush. Rush is wrong on this. Tying the belief in God to one's belief that global warming is a man-made hoax is irrelevant. Kippy, the models are wrong. The only thing a hockey stick should be used for is playing hockey.
In summation, President Kippy would have done nothing because there wasn't enough intel to act on. The attack was al Qaeda fault. Clinton's blame is that he passed on numerous opportunities to get bin Laden. Who has ever said that the economy went in the tank on January 20, 2009? Nice straw man. It is true that the intel that helped to capture bin Laden came from Bush's waterboarding program. Look it up.

Jara, One of those sites was the Obits. I think I saw COS in there.

Kip, Clinton also turned down a ground attack on bin Laden according Gen Wesley Clark because there was "a lot of logistics". A ground attack would have minimized the killing of innocents.

Graf, I just posted "Thank God for fracking" on an article regarding gasoline prices and I was sent to the moderator's office also. Could get crowded in there.
