    ...because we did what the government of a totalitarian state asked us to do other people should not be pissed about it?

    Now, I agree that saying we had it coming is probably not really accurate, but that is also not what I heard Wright saying. I heard him saying that there are consequences to the actions of the US in the world, and that 9/11 was one of those consequences. I did not hear him saying that is okay, just that it is reality.

      Bombing Japan in WWII brought on 9/11 along with other thoroughly unrelated actions.  And other people can get pissed all they want - they still don't get to kill thousands of Americans without pissing off waaaay more Americans.

      Do you really think the average independent voter in a swing state is going to sit there and say "well, maybe they have a point and have a right to kill more of us".
