We've Always Been At War With Eastasia...

Welcome to the "Global War On Terror, Cyber Crime, Illegal Immigration, and Drugs, and In Favor of the Ballistic Missile Shield Military-Defense Contractor-Law Enforcement Complex."

Bruce Schneier reminds us that the Global War On Terror™ is too big to fail.  It's not so much a war as a cash cow upon which civil government administrators are more than happy to remain dependent on for funding.  Never mind that Al Qaeda has never been weaker, if you paint it olive drab or tactical black your community can civilianize the Global War On Terror™.

I'd love to see 9/11 come and go without a mention (except for selfless bravery of the passengers of Flight 93) but it's already way too late for that. Osama bin Laden is dead and buried but he's still reaping windfall profits from his $500,000 investment.  Two trillion dollars and counting, an economy in shambles, and an American people treating 9/11 like a national holiday...
