PEARL HARBOR DAY

Today in history: The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Read the editorial in the New York Post, 12/7 and 9/11: America & the world, and then Onkar Ghate's article, Blame Unprincipled Foreign Policy for 9/11. Here is a quote by Dr. Ghate:

"At home, we treated our attackers as if they were isolated criminals rather than soldiers engaged in battle against us. In 1941 we did not attempt to indict the Japanese pilots who bombed Pearl Harbor--we declared war on the source. Yet we spent millions trying to indict specific terrorists--while we ignored their masters."
