    created a national, even international, climate of fear and hysteria in the time immediately follow late 2001. And they and their minions, including many in the DC press corps, used it to full advantage to brainwash the population into thinking, knowing that the only way to deal with the situation was to throw lots of military hardware at it.

    Had the government been in more thoughtful, compassionate hands, it's possible that the 2001 attacks could have been treated as what they were, a matter for international policing, not war.

    Life is extremely cheap to the right-wing until a decision about it is either in the hands of a pregnant women or a Democratic president. -- Lia Matera
