“Since the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, America has been the front line of the fight against terror. The USS Cole, our army barracks abroad, New York and Washington, DC–our enemies were bring the fight to us.
After the attack on 9/11, I decided we were going to take the fight to the terrorists. Now the terrorists are dying in Afghanistan and Iraq, while our citizens go to work and school in safety. If the Democrats want to go back to the 1990s, where we’re fighting the terrorists on our own airplanes in the skies over America, they’ll have to get past me first.”
