Remember that on this day 63 years ago, the worst attack on U.S. soil was perpetrated by the Japanese Empire. Think about those we lost in that war today. Also, 9/11 cannot be equivocated with Pearl Harbor any more, not since we went into Iraq. Where Pearl Harbor was a wakeup call for Americans, alerting them to the tyranny that was spreading across the world, 9/11 has become nothing more than an excuse for Empire.
The War on Terror could have been a noble cause, the way the fight against the Nazis and Japanese was. But Shrub and his minions have diminshed the sacrifice of my fellow New Yorkers, New Jerseyans, and Connecticites. They have used 9/11 to justify any atrocity, veiled as their attempt to make America safer. I'd be willing to bet that the guy aboard Flight 93 who said 'let's roll' is spinning in his grave along with the 3000 others who died that day.
