We as American citizens are aware that we do face a threat from terrorism. Actually we are aware that this has been a threat we have faced for decades and will face for decades to come.
Considering this grave threat to our nation and the recently foiled terror plot in the U.K., in which our country was targeted, we call upon you to ask some tough questions right now.
It has come to light that the President has known about this plan for days and yet he chose to stay on vacation. Should our commander in chief remain on vacation at a time of war when there is what's now considered a "imminent threat" against our nation? Shouldn't our President be in his office, coordinating and communicating to make sure out nation is best protected from this threat?
We are also hearing news of Governors activating their National Guard to assist with airport security. This has currently happened in California and Massachusetts. Is our President keeping our nation safe? I can't help but wonder about the National Guard troops being sent to the border to protect us from the dangers of illegal immigration, but isn't terrorism a greater threat? Should we be using our valued National Guard to protect our borders or fight in a civil war in another country?
Congress- we live in very serious times and these are very serious questions. Perhaps you should all leave your campaign trails to get back in session and start asking these questions. This year we have a terror threat, last year we had Katrina. We need Congress to make sure that our President is actually doing his job. If you do not ask these questions then the next attack on this country will also be at the fault of you and America will not forget that.
