Another September 11th

Today marks the anniversary of the terrorist's successful attack on the World Trade Center buildings, the Pentagon and the unsuccessful attempt at using Flight 93 for further violence. Approximately 3,000 people died that day and it was truly a tragedy. Unfortunately, another tragedy has emerged which has tarnished and belittled the loss of life that day. During the years since 9/11 the government that failed to protect us from what happened that day has used the event to waste hundreds of billions of dollars warring against the people of Iraq who were innocent of any participation in the 9/11 attacks, used the fear of 9/11 and further terrorism to trample on the American people's rights and spent vast sums of money creating huge new government bureaucracies to further the trampling of our rights in the name of fear. The terrorism of September 11, 2001 was bad enough but the real tragedy of that day is and was its aftermath.
