12. My 9-11 Story, by BKL
I printed out, and read, the original position papers of the PNAC about a month before 9/11. That list included Rebuilding America's Defenses, which includes this gem:
Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is
likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event like a new Pearl Harbor.
(Rebuilding Americas Defenses, p. 51)
And then, I woke up on 9/11 to watch the second airliner crash.

I tried real hard to give Team Bush the benefit of the doubt and I waited to see if Bush would "rise to the occasion" like Rudy Giuliani did. No such luck. After his cowardly cross-country jet-hopping and his dumb-ass photo op four days later, I realized that one of the cornerstones of the PNAC plan had been laid -- on the crushed and burned bodies of the victims of 9/11.
