If Only Some Could Have Seen This Coming

So, Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer for one of the accused terrorists behind 9/11, has announced that the men would not deny their role in the 2001 attacks but "would explain what happened and why they did it."

So basically, it's not going to be a trial, but an "Inside the Actor's Studio" for terrorists. Just yards from where thousands of innocent Americans perished, we'll all get to understand the motivations that drove these men to do what they did. I mean, since we know they're not going to deny their guilt– it's no longer about justice. It's just about "why, why, why." We'll learn exciting things about their childhood, their dreams of martyrdom, and how evil America is. It will be a show trial, without the "trial" part.

God, if only someone could have seen this coming.

Oh, wait...we all saw this coming. The only people who didn't? Those who let it happen.

There are three reasons for that:

-One, those people are stupid.

-Two. There's a belief shared by the "why do they hate us" faction of America that we are equally responsible for the terror attack. If we were just better people - nicer, less successful and less "American" - no one would try to kill us! Replacing Bush with Obama was supposed to help with all that. It didn't.

-Three, we've elected people consumed by the idea of root causes – a pseudo-intellectual exercise that prevents a real understanding of evil actions. Every culprit can tell a story, but by listening to that story, you insult each and every one of his victims. But to abort any argument based on root causes, simply say, "there are plenty of unhappy people who don't fly planes into buildings." Of course that's just too sensible for the best and the brightest.

I agree with your every word. Reality is not something liberals are familiar with, even in their dreams.

Good post TC.

The left always has to have a reason for why we were attacked because they are loathe to admit personal responsibility.

Get yourself (or another person, for the boys) pregnant? No problem, have an abortion. Obama himself said he didn't want his daughter "punished" by pregnancy.

Commit crime, it's your parents fault or maybe the police for "entrapping" you into buying cocaine.

Unemployed, even when the economy is good, it's because all bosses are mean spirited not because you could not get out of bed and to work on time.

Unable to get a college degree, it's because the entrance exams and class work is "race biased" not because you could not make it to class everyday and study.

On and on.

It is a dog and pony show for no other reason than to give the progressive left control over an issue that most sane people would rather have the military deal with. And the military is always more closely aligned with conservatives than... marxists. Progressives are not stupid though. They are just evil.
