The lessons of 9/11

Lorie Byrd has written a thoughtful article about the lessons we’ve learned from 9/11 and, more importantly, the lessons we keep ignoring.  She was kind enough to link to one of my posts on the subject, which I really appreciate.  She sees, as I do, an overwhelming tension between those who think 9/11 was a harbinger of a new world order, one that sees us becoming eternally vigilant to protect our internal peace and liberty, and those who think it was an anomaly that can safely be ignored.
