Were over 3 thousand people kept safe on 9/11?
Your brother was proud of his close relationship to the Saudi royal family. Was he unaware of their funding of Osama bin Ladin? Did he confront the Saudi royal family when it became known that the majority of the perpetrators of the attack were Saudi citizens.
Did your brother pay attention to the PDB suggesting an attack on the US by Osama bin Ladin was imminent. What actions did he take to protect us?
Your brother only had an inane response in the elementary school classroom when informed of the terrorist attack--his vacant stare suggesting he no idea what to do, no knowledge of a protocol to be used, no anticipation of such an attack.
No! He did not keep us safe and his unwarranted attack of Iraq proves to this day his gross failure. His bellicose call for revenge does not require great courage or intellect or demonstrate great contemplative leadership but a mere visceral reaction.
I think it is SAFE to say that your brother DID NOT KEEP US SAFE!
