-- welcome back to the five.
So on the tenth anniversary of 9/11 York times columnist Paul -- Delivered the most odious piece of drivel ever on the attack well at -- since the last time you wrote about it.
The headline is quote the years of shame and quote Andy no it's not directed at radical Islam.
It's steady target America and it's quote -- heroes.
Krugman claims that the atrocity has been hijacked the sick were given that he's not actually talking about the real hijackers who killed some 3000 Americans.
-- -- people like George Bush and Rudy Giuliani who He thinks capitalized.
On the horrible crimes.
But the worst part at the end of this column.
The creep writes I'm not going to allow comments on this post for obvious reasons.
That obvious reason he's it outward.
I mean why else would you ban responses.
He's like a ten year old boy crank calling all of us only to hang up before -- here's a response.
You hearing is -- -- for his own wickedness.
That watch the memorial services -- -- sorrow for the families whose grief never really ends but since I'm lousy at emotional reflection usually I avoid it.
But at least I can summarize what many feel today in nine words go to help Paul Krugman you bearded bitter buffoon He -- data.
There is something wrong with them can we pretty much agree.
Yet a week after week it gets a little bit mark crazy and mean that when He did that thing about that for a stimulus bill we should have alien invasion if you remember yeah I really think that the former Enron advisor.
Who is not pregnant was actually making any cries of -- cry for help.
And He was stuffed in a locker for too long when He was in high school and -- -- malware MMI trying to make light of what -- wrote it was despicable I actually don't know.
Anybody who's defended it plus -- -- really poorly written.
But they've really done -- -- wonder about the New York Times -- Is anybody reading this -- yeah there they -- that's not get past the editors what I did wasn't allows right I'm.
What was just it's on his blocks and maybe they don't bother to read it but it seemed to me like something I would write right before I went to bed on Ambien can you.
Second convoluted and weird mess outside so they yeah they're cool with whatever He says on his blog I mean can you imagine that this and I can't imagine that there or by the way government if you're right he's crying out for attention again and we -- It's a mother was not a good thing I thought about it was a personal I wish I could cut off all comments strictly -- But I can't Wear that out yet -- -- in the finale that I mean usually read email -- already they doubled me -- -- Paul the other guys to step up through a get out of the way.
I'm also this -- all now saying that there was a terror ridden -- of the horrible message but.
The one point He did make and I'll repeat distance -- and not directed my friend Dana but.
The fact is that this did lead to -- getting into Warner -- it was a mistake.
It made -- -- a regional power that should not have been we never should better warn Iraq we -- for the wrong reasons but that is the only negative consequences not allowed as far as latency what.
Well it could write about how you make your commentary on on 9/11 or -- -- peace -- -- and I -- let -- -- good shape what He said in his piece it that we went to war in Iraq.
As a result colliding with him I'm saying that we the war in Iraq was wrong.
It remains strong and it cost this country enormously OK I wanna move on because at a -- That makes somebody a fake hero and I don't know how I did not know and I don't make that connection at all I did not make a connection on the same thing -- -- -- The war was wrong I do -- I disassociate.
You with what He -- -- relative but absolutely absolutely you guys like they did Eisenhower it isn't let people make comments on it Rumsfeld and -- he's canceling his subscription when -- the last three people that's -- -- -- Rumsfeld was on another prominent.
And that's I'm gonna practice the only thing it was a present a brutal do yourself it was a dumb Shiites thing to do.
Don't take comments not -- to thank you have to turn on active lead -- -- -- commentary by saint and I'm not gonna take any company with just so stupid because.
If they didn't have -- a promise and -- to respond to a yet it also He gets paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to take the heat for his own commentary -- the fact that He crawls under bed after writes I think.
It's kind of -- I think He got as bad but those little Internet so that He could see other things are being written about it.
-- want -- touch -- these airline scares him yesterday were two flights.
One in which that fighter planes are scrambled to assist this plane to land in JFK turns out it was a guy.
Who went to the bathroom a couple of times the other flight was which was Frontier Airlines from Denver Detroit.
That didn't passengers were getting nervous because are people going back and forth again to the bathroom turns out they were making out.
Listed -- you're not supposed to talk about your own panelists on that they had I was I wasn't it was a fairly simple.
She and I were having a good time -- that sought to -- But -- -- what you're saying is what happened in the good old days Bob when we're.

Yeah expired it does not yet another way to -- or not they -- -- uncle.
I'd get my younger days it replaces our discussion a good -- Saddam.
Call it BS on this right there's no way you and she could fit when -- -- -- All right I've given the bad yeah.
I don't believe that I've always trying to keep this from going too far.

People walking back and forth to the bathroom create a lot of suspicion in my house my website have you seen how many times they -- I had better say something -- -- from my own experience -- drug addicts.
They're -- -- a job as an athlete at first class all the time.
Carried out of -- -- owners got.
Seeing guys get something when they can mount the mother knows a lot to go back into my -- -- don't you watch Kimberly we have over are we over sensitive to this stuff.
No I don't think we should be over sensitive the whole point is we've been able to thwart terror attacks when we've had citizens be responsible they see something they say something so.
You wanna be the one person and add blow it off and something happens and you know not -- evidence.
It's a that was a good day to be vigilant.
