It's Also A Failure Of Common Sense and Courage

Lack Of Imagination Clouds Sept. 10 Minds
By Jonathan Gurwitz

Travel back six years in time. It's the summer of 2001. Lance Armstrong has just won his third consecutive Tour de France. President Bush signed an extension of the Iran and Libya Sanctions Act, reiterating that cooperation with other nations "is essential to pursuing the most effective approaches to solving the problems of proliferation and terrorism."

Anchorman Dan Rather is in hot water with the NAACP for saying on the Don Imus show that CBS news executives "got the Buckwheats" and were frightened into reporting on the smoldering scandal involving Rep. Gary Condit and missing intern Chandra Levy. The scandal itself is the most important story coming out of Washington as the Capitol empties for August recess.

Now imagine an alternate history that goes along with these events.
