Even though Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11, much of the information in the Sept 11 section is helpful in understanding current problems. Many wondered if we were abandoning the search for bin Laden and attacking Iraq because of oil (esp since no weapons of mass destruction have been found). The feelings of many are captured by the I Hate War statement on the FDR memorial.
