The larger tragedy of 9/11--and this is not to minimize the events of that dark day--is that the neo-cons were able to use it as a pretext for launching a policy permanent warfare that began with the invasion of Iraq and has continued to this day. That policy has killed orders of magnitude more people than died in the Twin Towers, and yet there's no organized movement in the US to protest the lies and wanton killing which was unleashed by Dick Cheney and continued by Barak Obama, and to bring those responsible to justice. Only Trump has challenged that policy but he's been thwarted by a bureaucratic inertia of immense power. Perhaps Trump's firing of John Bolton, who has been one of the loudest liars of the past 18 years, will allow the beginning of a process by which America will recover its lost soul.

Yep. Agree with the incompetence of Bush II and assistants. Set the whole place on fire and it's still burning.
I guess they aren't looking for Iraq's WMD's anymore, at least. What a legacy.
