Bush's War Against Evil.

In the gothic splendor of the National Cathedral, that liturgy of trauma, George W. Bush made the most stirring - and ominous - declaration of his presidency. It was Sept. 14, 2001. "Just three days removed from these events," he said, "Americans do not yet have ''the distance of history.'' But our responsibility to history is already clear: to answer these attacks and rid the world of evil.''



"No human being with a minimal self-knowledge could speak of evil as he does, but there is no self-knowledge without a self. Even this short 'distance of history' shows George W. Bush to be, in that sense, the selfless president, which is not a compliment. It's a warning."

No voy a hacer comentarios.
