9/11 coverage

Before the time that the first plane hit, in the coverage of the fifth anniversary of 9/11, ABC has already taken a dig at the Iraq War (a reporter in Iraq talking about the mission there and saying that some of our troops don't support the war, I missed getting the exact quote) and Tom Brokaw on NBC has questioned whether "we are fighting the last war."

It would make no sense to compare Iraq 2 to Afghanistan or to Iraq 1, so I can only think that he meant Vietnam. I had to turn the TV off.

It's probably better that the TV's off now. This would probably be too much for the kids. They are still to young for the emotional weight of this.

However, in my opinion they are more mature than many reporters.
