Isn't This Where We Came In?
I woke up this morning and witnessed almost exactly the same scene I saw six years ago. MSNBC was rebroadcasting the Today Show from September 11, 2001 in "real time," with only a small-print explanation of what was depicted at the bottom of the screen. I'm convinced that I tuned in nearly at the same point as six years ago -- with only the first tower hit and the hosts having no idea as to the origin of the plane or the reasons for the collision. That could be a trick of memory, however.
So much has changed in the past six years.
The same incompetent president is still in the White House.
Osama bin Laden is living his life as before.
The Administration and its necrophiliac cheerleaders are planning a glorious campaign to attack a Middle Eastern country based on fraudulent intelligence. Again.
Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Powell and Rice remain unindicted.
Norman Podhoretz is still batshit crazy ("the battle of Iraq"! Again!)
Telegenic white women of all ages are in peril, 24/7.
And thousands of Americans have become casualties of senseless violence, because that's what God wants.
