Bush gives a new reason for the 9/11 attacks.

"With this new era have come new threats to freedom. In dark and repressive corners of the world, whole generations grew up with no voice in their government and no hope in their future. This life of oppression bred deep resentment. And for many, resentment boiled over into radicalism and extremism and violence. The world saw the result on September the 11th, 2001, when terrorists based in Afghanistan sent 19 suicidal men to murder nearly 3,000 innocent people in the United States."

Based on this statement, shouldn't the resentment have been against the "dark and repressive" governments in which the 19 suicidal men had "no voice?"

He goes on to justify "expanding freedom" because of the 9/11 attacks.

As a friend told me, Orwell is rolling in his grave.
