Congressman Snyder Is A Slow Learner

Congressman Vic Snyder (D-AR), commented Thursday that he had his staff get videos of beheadings in Iraq so he could watch them and “see what kind of people” the terrorists are. It is now three years after 9/11, and the congressman is just now finding out who the terrorists are? Give me a break. Has he been under a rock? This is not a September 10th world anymore. The deaths of 3,000 people on our own soil did not tell him this? The daily news reports of terrorist atrocities all over the globe that often involve the deaths of innocent children have not told him this? The terrorists we're fighting now are the same as the ones that attacked us before. He hasn't made the connection. He voted against the Department of Homeland Security. He voted against war in Iraq to remove Saddam. He voted against expanding NATO to include countries that are now part of the coalition in Iraq. He obviously does not understand the War on Terror. Mr. Snyder attempted to reassure us saying, “I will continue to learn as much as I can”. The stark truth is, he should have learned by now. In one of the most crucial periods of our time, who wants to re-elect a congressman who just doesn’t get it.
