Excerpt: One hundred seventy years ago Clausewitz wrote that war is a political act that should be directed by the political leaders of a nation. After extensive investigation and hearings focusing on September 11, 2001, the Congressional Joint Inquiry Report concludes that “...neither President Clinton nor President Bush nor their National Security Councils put the government or the Intelligence Community on a war footing before September 11th.” This unilaterally declared war culminated on September 11, 2001, and, like Pearl Harbor sixty years before it, finally pushed the United States into war. Thirty-one months after that Day of Infamy, exhaustive study by the Joint Intelligence Committee “uncovered no intelligence information in the possession of the Intelligence Community prior to the attacks of September 11 that, if fully considered, would have provided specific, advance warning of the details of those attacks.” al-Qaeda and its political leadership openly declared war against America. Bin Laden’s 1998 “Fatwah” declared that Americans anywhere would be killed. In August, 1998, al-Qaeda committed an act of war against America by attacking our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. In December, 1999, one of al-Qaeda’s soldiers, Ahmed Ressam, into America to bomb LAX, as he told FBI Agents after being convicted. In October, 2000, al-Qaeda successfully attacked a powerful United States warship in the Port of Aden.
