Shortly after September 11, the phrase "9/11 changed everything" got popular. I thought it a useful overstatement. More than anything we needed unity, and that helped. Almost five years later, it looks like an understatement. Politics in America, the law, the conduct of war, the West and Islam, U.S. allies past and present--all changed.
But there's a difference. Normally when something changes in the physical world we can see what replaced the old. In the post-September 11 world, about all we can see is that the old templates for understanding these things are under pressure and may be broken. But in nearly each instance, the new template for how we think about them isn't clear. Should prisoners from the terror wars be moved here from Guantanamo and put under established U.S. law, or is something less than that more appropriate?

The article ends, "Yes, September 11 changed everything, and it's time to start talking about whether the changes are helping us, or them."
I would have to say with the left's/Democrats shameless actions the answer is most definitely "them".
"It didn't change everything. For the Left, it changed nothing."
Made em even more traitorous in many ways.
