Massachusetts Democrats: 15 Years Older, 0% Wiser

Our friend Andy McCarthy from the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies has the "must-read" article of the day. It's about this date, February 26, a date that should live in infamy. The fact that it means nothing to most Americans speaks volumes about American culture and politics today.

It was on this day 15 years ago that the Islamist War Against Modernity first came to our shores. The truck bomb attack on the World Trade Centers should have been a wake up call. Instead, we all but ignored it. President Clinton treated it the same way he treated the repeated attacks against America on his watch: No bid deal.

That mentality should have ended on 9/11/01. The fact that Democrats in the House of Representatives have stopped our foreign surveillance program over the issue of trial lawyers hounding US telecom companies shows that, for some people, the past 15 years never happened.
