As evidenced by the flags in the front yards up and down my street, most people are commemorating 9/11 in some way. I wonder, though, if any Islamics around town are celebrating their big moment of 5 years prior with clandestine parties in their basements? I'm sure if you went to the local Islamic center and perused the corkboard, amongst the catchy signs and slogans ministrating against pork products, and next to the posted talking points from CAIR, is a notice of this evening's 9/11 Qahwah social. Hey, it was a big day for them. Last one in 5 years.
If the Homeland Security people were wise, they'd be checking the records of Party City for sales of Mylar balloons and such to anyone named Habib or Mohammed. Then, armed with such information, knock on the doors of those people and interrogate them for hours until they could prove it was for something completely innocent, like a daughter's arranged marriage to a previously conjugated male.
Now that the Clintons are done writing threatening letters to TV stations, they should write notes of thanks to the Manning family, NBC, and CBS for taking people away from "The Path to 9/11" film that really puts the screws to them. Audience levels for 9/11 fare was even with football, but CBS split the 9/11 crowd in half with their competing drivel. As if it matters. As if Americans now don't know how blinded they were through the 80s and 90s, evidenced by the flags in the front yards up and down my street.
