9/11 is Nothing to be Proud of

Every year around this time, the images I posted HERE receive (greatly) increased web traffic.

The most popular one this year is the photo of the Pentagon. There are several conspiracy theories circulating the web, claiming it was really a missile or a fighter jet that hit the Pentagon. I don't know if this happens to be why that particular page is seeing so much traffic. See HERE for the famous flash video. More posted here and here.

Been 3 years now. The good news is that we've had no more such attacks. For which our government deserves kudos. The bad news is that the administration, in their recent convention (held in New York City), seems to be celebrating the attacks of 9/11 .. making them the centerpiece of their re-election campaign .. instead of seeing them for what they really represent: the biggest Intelligence screw-up in our nation's history. 9/11 is nothing to be proud of ...

... which is probably why the Administration fought so hard against the forming of the 9/11 commission, because it didn't want all its screw-ups exposed. If you were them, you'd probably do the same thing. The families of victims had to fight long and hard for the commission to be formed. The White House fought them every step of the way.

Remember how the world felt about us in the days following the attacks? Well, they don't feel that way any more.

Beyond all this, the question that's really been bugging me is: Why haven't we (most powerful nation on the face of the earth) been able to find little ol' Osama bin Laden, the person responsible for 9/11?

Saddam may've been a bad guy, but he didn't do this. Those were Saudis, not Iraqis. $200 billion dollars, over 1,000 dead soldiers and 3 years later, and we *still* don't have the guy who took down the World Trade Center towers and killed 3,000 innocent New Yorkers? Something about that doesn't seem right. Maybe they're just not looking very hard.

Long as American troops continue to die in Iraq, no member of Congress (including John Kerry) should be allowed to take vacation. Instead, they should spend all their free time visiting and consoling the families of *every* soldier who has died in Iraq. It's the least they can do for getting us into this mess.

If it were *their* kids dying in Iraq and showing up on the 6 o'clock new every night, you could be damn-skippy sure this war would be over right quick. Tell me I'm wrong. I dare ya.
