"In the months after the attacks, commentators lamented our tendency to blithely ignore the anger and desperation of the outside world until it exploded at our doorstep. Never again, they said, would we be so complacent. Four years later, the cable news channels are endlessly fascinated with an attractive young blond who went missing months ago in Aruba. Of far less interest is the crushing poverty and drought-induced starvation in Africa, the disturbing anti-U.S. rhetoric of South American politicians and the slow bleeding away of our troops in Afghanistan as the threat of a return to extremism there looms."
