Nine years ago, I watched the twin towers blaze from a nearby building. I forced myself to stare at the flames and swore to myself as I did so that I would never forget.
The mainstream media quickly buried the horror in some sort of gentlemen's agreement not to air the video except on extraordinary occasions. Our flaccid president suggests that this was not Islamic mass murder but something more akin to a natural disaster and bleats that the greatest danger is discrimination against the co-religionists of the guilty whose religious vision led them to commit mass murder.
But I made myself watch evil, and I, at least, will never forget.
