The fact is though, that Americans fail to realise that, justified or not, what has happened is that 9/11 signalled the beginning of the USA reaping what it had sowed itself.
I sure as hell wish that, even if the hoi polloi in this country didn't understand this, the government would. Yet it patently does not. We're supposed to have folks with at least half a brain running the show, as the consequences of failing ot do so are too potentially great. Yet here we are with Bush & Co.

Edited to add: that's not to imply that not everyone in the government has half a brain these days. Some, even among the higher-ups in the adminstration, are obviously quite intelligent, at least as would be calculated on conventional tests. But why can't they USE those brains??

If I may, Mensa is a club for only those who have the highest IQ scores. I've known quite a few, and I agree with Hilary - there is a reason why so many brilliant people end up in asylums!
