Assigning Blame

Ed Morrissey addresses the blame game that continues to take place between many Republicans and Democrats about who should take responsibility for the lead up to 9/11:

All of this is prologue to 9/11, and none of the debate changes the fact that two decades of leadership dropped the ball on the rise of Islamist terrorism. Blaming one without blaming them all has solved nothing and teaches nothing. More to the point, it divides the nation for no purpose, and five years after 9/11, it's time we stopped allowing it.

The entire post merits reading. The only point of looking back should be to figure out how to move forward. The fingerpointing on both sides is counterproductive.
