I know it isn't politically correct to say such things, but I am not a fan of all the public hand-wringing.
Agreed. We're unquestionably a worse country 10 years later. The hand wringing is political theater and media propaganda to keep people scared and off balance so the gubmint can go have it's way with your rights and taxpayer money. Bin Laden knew exactly what he was doing. Throw some chin music at the Yankees and watch them stupidly swing themselves into the canvas and spend themselves into financial ruin chasing the "evil doers".
