Swimming Upstream

Tonight instead of marking the anniversary of 9/11 with a speech that looks forward to an optimistic future, Bush offered the most specious of arguments: a justification of the invasion of Iraq. My hope for optimism is reduced as the speech progresses; I change the channel unsettled that this speech is a relic from a previous campaign stop.

In three years we'll finally have a new President to help mark this day. Will we still be discussing the case for war in Iraq? Or Iran? Is this really the best way we can honor the fallen?
