  •  9-11 was no threat to us (5+ / 0-)

    It killed a lot of innocent people and it wasn't a very nice thing to do, but it was no realistic threat to the US--militarily, existentially or otherwise.

    Car accidents kill more people in a month than 9-11 killed. Heck, the revenge war we waged in response to it killed more Americans than the terrorist attack did.

    As a society, we over-reacted, lost our minds, and did far more damage to our own country (perhaps irrevocably) than Bin Laden could ever have hoped to do.
