9/11 – 12 years later

Once again, it is the anniversary of the attacks on the US at the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. This is also the first anniversary of the death in Benghazi of our ambassador and several other people abandoned by the Obama administration. There were at least two further attacks in Benghazi today.

I don’t know what to say at this point that hasn’t been covered already (and better) by others. Our response to 9/11/2001 started as an example of Category Error. Rather than going after the nation and/or culture which produced the attackers, we declared war on their chosen tactic.

And now, we’re providing weapons to the enemies who attacked us. What is it the Constitution says?

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

Are the Syrian rebels really our enemy? Well, they’re associated with Al Qaeda, and Al Qaeda are our enemies, so I don’t see how providing them with weaponry and assistance can be considered anything other than treason.

Then again, as a well-known “American patriot” once asked, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” I know what difference it makes to me. It’s confirmation that the administration was lying about Benghazi from the start. What difference does it make to you?
