He did exactly what bin Laden had wanted, indeed he did more than bin Laden could have ever dreamed. The response to 9/11, of unjustified war, of torture and hatred, had destroyed America’s soul. And once the soul was gone, the body followed, rotting slowly from within, a slow decline visible in every sphere of public life, from economic decline based on untrammeled greed, celebrated as a virtue rather than the weakness and sin it is, to the complete destruction of any pretense of a viable press, capable of telling truth from lies.
