Al-Qaeda today An article from Time Magazine: it's incredible to see the changes in the US media two years after the 9/11 attacks in the US. Immediately after 9/11, and then with the Bush administration's "war on terror," the media didn't question, didn't raise doubts, didn't argue ... nothing ... now, after two years, the questions are being asked. But what if the media had been objective in the beginning - would Bush had been successful in mounting a campaign in Iraq? A campaign that's bogged down US forces, and lend support to terrorists and anti-Americans? Had the media questioned - had American's questioned - Bush's motives were hardly for the good of anyone other than himself. He stated it clearly that he was after the man who tried to kill his Dad. Like that's an excuse for the thousands of Iraqis dead, or the daily deaths of US soldiers in a war that really wasn't just.
