On September 11, 2001, the United States was attacked by Islamist terrorists. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives.
Today we remember them, and those they left behind. We also apologize.
We apologize for a president who is so disengaged, bumbling, and unserious that he realistically speaks, for more than a week, of aiding on the battlefield the very organization that attacked us.
We apologize for an electorate who, thanks largely to minuscule attention spans and a ceaselessly sycophantic mainstream press, actually debates this as a legitimate option rather than universally requiring a sensible course from their president.
We apologize for nearly totally forgotten lessons in the space of a mere dozen years.
