Victor Davis Hanson comprehensively surveys

Victor Davis Hanson comprehensively surveys the changes already wrought by 9/11 as well as those to be wrought by American power over the next few months: “Iraqi aftershocks.” It is quite a ride, with a stirring conclusion that will get no quarrel from us: “[P]erhaps the queerest phenomenon of all was where real wisdom was to be found in our hour of greatest need…[Not from those who should have been able to provide it.] Instead, a president who supposedly slurred his words and forgot dictator’s names sensed the extent and threat of a rare evil, as well as the remedy for its demise that had escaped his supposed betters. And so far that has made all the difference in this strange war.”
