I know I've pointed out how the anthrax attacks have been scrubbed from our basic historical narrative, but increasingly it seems as if the entire period between Rudy Giuliani Day and Let's Bomb Iraq Day has gone down the memory hole. It's as if there's this unbroken temporal link between September 11th and the Iraq war and none of the intervening events actually happened.
I actually had to think for a second to remember who Mullah Omar was. And, yes, he's still there. And being offered a spot in the government, or something.
