A September 11th morning

By Creature

This morning in New York City the sky is cloudless and blue. This morning in New York City the air is clear and crisp. In other words, this morning in New York City is what I like to call a "September 11th Morning."

I'm sure I'm not the only New Yorker who feels this same, odd, anxious deja-vu on days like today. My walk towards the train is the same as it was six years ago. The sky I see is the same sky that held that first plane as it flew way too low, right down the center of Manhattan island. Thankfully this morning there was no plane. Thankfully this morning there was no boom. Thankfully this morning George W. Bush is in charge and we are a safer nation for it.

Oh, wait...

U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded al-Qaida has rebuilt its operating capability to a level not seen since just before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, The Associated Press has learned. The conclusion suggests that the group that launched the most devastating terror attack on the United States has been able to regroup along the Afghan-Pakistani border despite nearly six years of bombings, war and other tactics aimed at crippling it.

If al-Qaida does strike this summer. If they do follow us home. If the feeling in Chertoff's "gut" is more than just hunger. I will hold that smirking bastard, George W. Bush, and all the enablers around him, directly responsible for the consequences of any attack on my country, on my home.

I do not want another September 11th Morning haunting me. There is a real terror threat out there and these criminals in charge have done nothing to make it less likely. On the contrary, they have made it only more likely.

And this time they can't blame it on Bill Clinton.
