Another perversion in memory of the victims
The nation is waking up to all the darkness, lies and criminality of this administration and their rubberstamp Congress. Nearly all of this can be traced to the use of 9/11 as a political tool to give the President anything he wanted. Yet again, today the ghoul President signed this patently horrible law "in memory of the victims of Sept. 11."
If I were related to a 9/11 victim I would be highly peeved right now. To use the memory of my loved one in order to alter the fundamentals that have made this nation the greatest ever is just unacceptable. It is time to take the 9/11 arrow from the political quiver of this horrible man and let these victims rest in peace.
Actually, despite the fact that I'm not directly related to a 9/11 victim, I'm highly peeved anyway. 9/11 was a horrible day for the entire nation. Building political empire on the rubble of that day is to entwine what was, and should be, a unifying force, and somber memory for all of us, with the crassest of political endeavor.
The President has already involved this nation in a needless war based upon the so called "lessons of 9/11". The dead of that day should be honored in our memories, but this President uses them to justify foreign policy disaster and death on a biblical scale. This simply is a disgusting example of grave robbing for political gain.
This needless war, justified by 9/11, has resulted in the loss of a virtual monolith of opinion both internationally and domestically that stood with us in the war on terror immediately following the attack. I believe that the great irony of the Bush Presidency is that despite repeated promises in the 2000 election to be a uniter not a divider, that we actually see it was Osama Bin Laden that united the entire world with 9/11, and it is President Bush that has proven to be the great divider.
Dividing us in the name of 9/11 truly is a travesty.
