I regret to inform you that the terrorists have, and I just can't stress this enough, won.

This is not a joke, and it's certainly not hyperbole. The perpetrators of 9/11 wanted to end this country as we knew it. They may not have predicted we'd do almost all of it to ourselves, but here we are
We've destroyed our own civil liberties, forgotten the meaning of the word "privacy," set up a Muslim registry (NSEERS, 2002-2011; still technically law), watched as proto-fascism took root, politicized our immigration system, & chosen the worst among us out of fear.

Now, this.
Central America is a perfect example of Colin Powell's "Pottery Barn Doctrine" : you break it, you bought it.

We broke it. And we've just stuck them with what's left on the bill, maybe forever.
