George Bush was elected in 2000 and took office in 2001. During his first year the World Trade Center was destroyed, and the arc of his presidency and of the country took a totally different direction.

Yes, it did. It gave him the excuse to attack a country that never attacked us. It ruined the US economy, the US dollar and our budget deficit. 5 years after the war started, Bush has still refused to say how he expects his war to be paid for. As of right now, it is financed via credit card. No taxes has been raised to pay for it. I know I'm not going out on a limb when I say that it will be our kids and grandkids that will be forced to deal with the mounting Bush Iraq bill.

In the mean time, Al Queda, the people that actually attacked us, seem to be doing just fine.
