The 9/11 attacks originated in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia. President George W. Bush invaded Iraq. Just under 3,000 people were killed on 9/11. Some 3,000 Americans have been killed in Iraq.

The president has accomplished what the “terrorists” couldn’t – another disaster. I hope, but do not trust, that the president’s requested troop buildup in Iraq is not destined to invade Iran.
