Thomas Friedman on the nuisance:

“The president has exploited the terrorism issue for political ends – trying to make it into another wedge issue like abortion, guns or gay rights – to rally the Republican base and push his own political agenda. But it is precisely this exploitation of 9/11 that has gotten him and the country off-track, because it has not only created a wedge between Republicans and Democrats, it’s also created a wedge between America and the rest of the world, between America and its own historical identity, and between the president and common sense.”

Concentration is important!
