The pain lives on for many of the victims due to the callousness of republicans in denying benefits to first responders and their families via health care.

That type of pain is more amplified when doled out by one's own government.

Conservatives can not wrap around their heads the fact that President Obama made capturing OBL a priority - and succeeded - where GWB ignored OBL to get us into a fiasco of war for profit in Iraq.

Conservatives can not wrap around their heads anything positive about anything. Have you notice that all they talk about is the negative aspect of everything. These people are downers that only promote "No we can't". President Obama is more uplifting with "Yes we Can", which one would you rather be leading the country? Thank you Mr. President for trying to continue to do positive things! Now lets get industry/corp. to start hiring. I hope this lift the spirit of the whole country. God we needed this! Let us not allow the conserv. to dampen the country's spirit anymore.

Just read this on_twitter and had to laugh.


Obama did OK. But Trump would've used gold bullets, Palin would've had him stuffed and Gingrich would've slept with one of his wives.

Great quote from PZ Myers on the issue, "We killed hundreds of thousands of civilians and threw away trillions of dollars, and our trophy is the bloody corpse of one old man? There's no victory in that."

He was 54 years old, I don't understand that quote.

Nothing will bring back all that Osama Bin Laden took from America, but there is at least a special form of poetic justice that all those virgins who were waiting for him turned out to be hagfishes.

The Cakchiquel Mayan Indians of the Guatemalan highlands are exceptional. I am not.

Go and see for yourself....Well worth the journey :)

The Mayans had their problems, too.

And don't underrate yourself.

So, somehow, our communal mind has accepted that Osama was the guy who did nine 1 one, though we have yet to see one shred of hard evidence to prove it. And NO, his 'taking credit' in those suspect Bush tapes produced long after he denied having a role in it, don't count as evidence.

Yeah, he was a bad guy who did a lot of damage around the world. No, I won't miss him. But what about proof?

i like this train of thought.

Just how many more bodies would have to stack up until you had your "proof"?

I agree, "Yeah he was a bad guy", which I guess give you the understatement of the year award.

right. The accepted truth. Like WMD's?

How many bodies has that stacked up so far?

The pain of personal loss from a tragedy like 9/11 can't really be eased. It stunned me at first, then brought back the feelings of 9/11 all over again. If I felt that way, I really can't even fathom how the people of New York City feel! Peace to all, from an American on the west coast.

He can't help it.... brutality, colonization and revenge is in Americans genetic code :)
02:29 AM on 05/03/2011
Its in the human genetic code. There is no evidence to think Americans that are exceptional in that respect. You only have to read the Quran to notice that.

I think you need to separate the people in power who make those decisions from the people who have nothing to do with them. These sweeping generalizations really don't reflect most people in our country.

It's not so much about conspiracy theories as it is about what the American public will swallow when they're told to obediently follow what their leaders say.

Case in point:

1. How many here know what evidence links Bin Laden to 9/11?
2. If so, what is it?
3. How many here could care less about "evidence" and is satisfied that he's guilty because the United States government said so?

Unable to adequately answer #2, you must therefore advance to #3, thereby realizing that you have blindly accepted the propaganda that was manufactured and fed to you. I would argue that this scenario accounts for the rationale process of 99% of Americans over this particular issue.

I'd also argue that this scenario works because, like this article has shown, American exceptionalism still runs quite strong.

Very True. Bin Laden did not even orchestrate the attack. According to the 911 commission, he helped fund the operation, but they were unable to provide any evidence of a money trial leading to Bin Laden.

“Israel_ will need to take action to prevent Obama from appeasing the _Muslim world at our expense. Bin_Laden was never a direct _threat to _Israel. There is no doubt that Obama is a greater _threat to _Israel than Osama was.” - Knesset

Patriotism is not going to save us.
Patriotism is emotional, uncritical nonsense.
Patriotism to one's country is the way a child looks at his mother. Subservient and uncritical.
People need to be adults when they look at their country.

I concur. Originally dubbed as Nationalism, it was a spark of self righteousness that sparked the worst wars in history. We Never Learn .

The splitting of the American psyche -- "good vs. evil" -- is what has always brought us to war. 9/11 is a perfect example. No shades of grey, just react and b0mb.

19 hijackers that can't fly ...now that is a conspiracy theory.
