Some questions are hard to answer, but not this
one. For anyone with a child's understanding
of the Law of Cause and Effect, America hasn't
been attacked since 9/11 because Slate was
created by Michael Kinsley in 1996 and Timothy
Noah has been investigating this question ever
since he repudiated a Slate column he wrote in
2003, advocating the invasion of Iraq, in a Slate
column he wrote a year later, in 2004, admitting he
had been played the fool by Colin Powell and the
Bush Administration. Timothy is now producing
the fruit of his lengthy investigation--eight Slate
essays--which, hopefully, he will be able to
complete before Osama bin Laden emerges
from his cave and attacks America again.
