Zakaria: Why America Overreacted to 9/11 - Newsweek
Nine years after 9/11, can anyone doubt that Al Qaeda is simply not that deadly a threat?
No shit. More 20/20 hindsight from well-respected Washington intellect. There WERE people (ahem...Ron Paul) who suggested this beforehand, you know. Shouldn't we be giving the ideas of those people a tad more consideration? Having genius insight 7 years later doesn't do us any good. Let's consider an ideology that helps us avoid these mistakes BEFOREHAND. BEFORE we spend the money. BEFORE we get our boys and girls killed. BEFORE we risk our country's integrity and goodwill.
