GOP State Chairman Under Fire for Terrorism Statement

John Soltz, chairman and founder of the anti-Iraq War, wants Arkansas' GOP Chairman to step down.

Party Chairman Dennis Milligan said the US needs another terrorist attack like 9/11 to make people appreciate President Bush's policies.

“I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001 ], 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.” -- Dennis Milligan, quoted in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Mr Soltz says an apology would usually be enough -- but says the idea of wishing for a terrorist attack to extract some kind of political gain goes over the line. (NW Arkansas Times)
