There is of course lots of commentary available today on 9/11 and all that came about as a result. Here are a few of the most noteworthy pieces I’ve found this morning…I’ll add any more that I come across:
Victor Davis Hanson analyzes our national schizophrenia.
Fouad Ajami on the false dichotomy of the “good” (Afghanistan) and “bad” (Iraq) wars that followed 9/11.
RedState re-posts Dan McLaughlin’s account of his experience of 9/11, written two days afterward…the first half is what I found most worthwhile.
The New York Times describes the “fortress city that didn’t come to be” with a series of short interviews with New Yorkers. Amazingly, but perhaps not surprisingly, the only quote that comes close to a big-picture explanation of why the city has been able to go back to normal is a strange comment about…capitalism?
