John Howard reflects on 9/11 a decade after the terror attacks

John Howard was in Washington DC when terrorism struck the United States. His message with George & Paul for Australians on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is that "the terrorists have not succeeded".

The former PM, who took Australia into wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to fight terrorism, says there have been no attacks on our mainland, because of the efforts of our intelligence and security apparatus, and the inherent strength of the Australian way of life.

  • A fasciast pretending to be a real right winger, talking about freedom. Once a politician always a politician. If he ever starts trying to make amends for how he really sold us out then he'll be worth 2ue dusting him off. Him aside restore that important right he took away.

  • because of the efforts of our intelligence and security apparatus

    That's half right, because he neglects to say "the continued efforts". Sure wasn't little Johnny efforts that kept everyone safe. He did get a free kick at elections because of it. Good to see John still putting the 'ass' in class.

    Now with decreasing freedoms (including his recorded efforts in office) why does it sound like the 'terrorists' have won?
    A lot of fun telling Republicans exactly what Howard did in office and seeing their faces drop.
    Keep walking John. That hippy should have belted you a little harder that day.
