It's hard to believe that is has been six years since we were the victims of an unprovoked and dastardly attack. Far too many have forgotten, if you ask me.
On the left, we have people who want to go back to treating terrorism as a law enforcement problem, as we did in the 1990s. Of course, that was a big part of the reason we had 9/11 in the first place, but you just can't say that nowadays, or you are some neocon chickenhawk warmonger.
On the right, we have people who seem far more interested in ideological purity on a bunch of side issues than they are in winning the global war on terror. Not only is this a bad sense of priorities, but it has also led to leadership in Congress that is incompetent at best (at worst, they are determined to inflict a defeat on America in the global war on terror).
The country deserves a hell of a lot better than what it is getting.
