    attack, but Bush 2's administration ignored it.

    But you're right. since 9/11, there has been no significant terrorist to the US. The War on Terror that Obama continues to pursue with his drones is pointless. The military now has armed drones, and it uses them simply because it can.

    American exceptionalism is America's road to perdition.

    •  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.
