close Video State Department briefing: 9/11/18 On the roster: The lesson of 9/11 we didn’t really want to learn - Dubya hits the trail in Florida - New Hampshire Dems face bumper crop of candidates - Romney breaks ranks, calls out republicans on debt - Hambezzlement THE LESSON OF 9/11 WE DIDN’T REALLY WANT TO LEARNWe are now about as far from the events of Sept. 11, 2001 as the Americans who elected Bill Clinton president in 1992 were from the end of the Vietnam War.
