The Anniversary

I should probably say something about September 11 while that date can still go on this post. Have we advanced since last year? I'm not so sure. Osama bin Laden is still at large. John McCain claims to have a secret plan to capture Bin Laden, but he's keeping it close to the chest, apparently, until he enters the Oval Office. The Taliban is more and more resurgent in Afghanistan. Pakistan is becoming more unstable, too. George Bush has approved U.S. soldiers raiding across the border from Afghanistan into Pakistan to go after terrorist suspects, and there are reports that Pakistani forces are preparing to defend that border if necessary. It turns out that we're not particularly going to draw down troops from Iraq while Bush remains in office, after all. And last week we saw images of the planes hitting the World Trade Center being used to promote the McCain/Palin candidacy.

So what does it all mean on this seventh anniversary? You got me.
