Another 9/11
Posted by Shadi Hamid

Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but is Stu Bykofsky really hoping for another terrorist attack on U.S. soil? Unlike most things, this is actually, all at once, shocking, genuinely offensive, and internally incoherent. And I thought the Corner was bad. Well, I won't say much more, since you already probably saw it on Drudge. In any case, fast forward to the end of Stu Byofsky's piece, and you get to the worst part, which most people probably won't have the patience to get to:

America's fabric is pulling apart like a cheap sweater. What would sew us back together? Another 9/11 attack.The Golden Gate Bridge. Mount Rushmore. Chicago's Wrigley Field. The Philadelphia subway system. The U.S. is a target-rich environment for al Qaeda. Is there any doubt they are planning to hit us again? If it is to be, then let it be. It will take another attack on the homeland to quell the chattering of chipmunks and to restore America's righteous rage and singular purpose to prevail. The unity brought by such an attack sadly won't last forever. The first 9/11 proved that.

Good of him to make the argument so explicitly.

Some neo-con thinking seems to desire unity and aggressive foreign policy for its own sake. If unity was solely a way to defeat Al Qaeda, then why call for a more effective Al Qaeda?
