Arkansas GOP head: We need more ‘attacks on American soil’ so people appreciate Bush


In his first interview as the chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party, Dennis Milligan told a reporter that America needs to be attacked by terrorists so that people will appreciate the work that President Bush has done to protect the country.

“At the end of the day, I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001],” Milligan said to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, “and the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this country.”

Milligan, who was elected as the new chair of the Arkansas Republican Party just two weeks ago, also told the newspaper that he is “150 percent” behind Bush in the war in Iraq.

In his acceptance speech on May 19th, Milligan told his fellow Republicans that it was “time for a rediscovery of our values and our common sense.”

The owner of a water treatment company, Milligan was a relative unknown in Arkansas politics until being elected the party chairman. He had previously served as the party’s treasurer and the Saline County Republican chair.


Editor’s Note:Does this even need an ‘editor’s comment,’ really?

The “Arkansas Democrat Gazette” published an article quoting the new chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party as stating that it is “time for a rediscovery of our values and our common sense.” In an apparent effort to demonstrate the values and common sense that got him unanimously elected, he goes on to suggest, “all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001], and the naysayers will come around” to supporting Bush.

So does that mean if I want to be appreciated at work I should just use common sense and, say, blow up the copy machine and blame it on the mail-room guys? And then maybe I could hike our customers’ rates to pay my cousin’s start-up office machine repair company to fix the damage caused by those dreaded mail-room terrorists.

(By the way, this guy also states, “I am a pro-life individual” who is “‘150 percent’ behind Bush on the war in Iraq.” A-hem…)

Since 2004, 911Truth.Org has educated the public about the suppressed realities of the September 11 attacks.

We worked with the 9/11 Families to pressure the Bush administration to convene an investigation into the deadliest attacks on US soil since Pearl Harbor. We attended many of the commission hearings and questioned commissioners and bird-dogged elected officials to get answers to the Unanswered Questions that remain so to this day.

We reported the contradictions, lies and omissions on the public record. 911Truth.Org staff have given hundreds of interviews on radio and mainstream network TV.

We cover a wide range of 9/11-related issues in publishing academic papers, original research, and opinion pieces.
