A few of you have asked where is our commentary on the anniversary of September 11. Eight years later what is there to say other than what a national disgrace 9/11 was and continues to be to this very day. Should we say that a president who was in office for the better part of a year did nothing to stop the attacks, even though he received briefings that stated Osama Bin Laden was determined to fly planes into buildings? That after eight years that same president failed to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden? Or that same president not only failed in nearly every single regard in relation to 9/11, but also lied to lead this country into the unnecessary and disgraceful war in Iraq? You remember that war, don’t you? The one that would be over in a matter of months if not weeks? The one in which we would be welcomed as liberators? The one that Iraqi oil would pay for? No, not that one that was sold to us by liars – the one that has resulted in the murder of thousands, near total destruction, despair and virtually nothing else. That war – the very same one that used 9/11 as a backdrop to start what has proven to be one of the low points in American history,
9/11? Rome burned and the Chimp sat there like a dummy reading My Pet Goat. In retrospect, how perfectly fitting that is now.
So sure, we remember 9/11, the unnecessary death and all that has happened as a result, and we hang our heads in sadness and shame.
