Aids is taking the lives of over 6000 people a day in Africa alone. Terrorism in a way is considered an act of war, many innocents die from war, never going to change. I find alot more tragedy in the knowledge that for the price of a $.10 condom a life could be saved.
If this event happened somewhere other than America it would be all but forgotten by now.
I don't think you could be more wrong, and the political fallout of 9-11 has shaped the rest of the world going forward. There is no more signifigant, single action in our lifetime.
