Here's a grab from the recent speech by US Vice President Dick Cheney, on pre-emptive strikes.
If the United States could have preempted 9/11, we would have; no question. Should we be able to prevent another, much more devastating attack, we will; no question. This nation will not live at the mercy of terrorists or terror regimes.

You can get the rest here.

So the question on the table for the anti-war crew is this: would the US have been justified in striking first, had they had warning and excellent proof that a strike against (insert Arab country here) would have prevented the September 11 attacks?
