"And furthermore, does it really matter what country the terrorists are from?"

Yes it does. A great deal. If you don't understand WHY it matters a great deal, then you aren't paying very close attention.

"Show me a batch of politicians that ISN'T a bunch of liars."

It isn't just about the lying. It is also about who is to blame for this unholy mess in Iraq. It is about who is to blame for absolutely no oversight of the military (that is Congress' job, BTW) since 9/11. It is about who ordered that military intelligence, et al directly violate the Geneva Conventions in order to torture the confessions the Bush administration wanted from Iraqis to "prove" this US sponsored and sanctioned state terrorism is "morally" right, when it is clear it is ethically very, very wrong.

Right wing morals be damned, I say, be they the morality of right wing Republicans in the US, or the morality of the right wing Islamic terrorists in the Middle East.

End the carnage. Now.
