Panetta Channels Bush/Cheney

Official portrait of Leon Panetta as United States Secretary of DefenseThe reason you guys are here is because on 9/11 the United States got attacked. And 3,000 Americans - 3,000 not just Americans, 3,000 human beings, innocent human beings - got killed because of Al Qaeda. And we've been fighting as a result of that.
