July 4, 2008: Thinking about the way we used to be before the Forever War began


Looking in through the lace curtains of one window, and out the other, letting memory drift through the tunnel of time to a more innocent era -- before 9/11, before extraordinary rendition and Guantanamo became household words, before civil liberties became disposable in the war on terror, and before the start of this endless, unjust and increasingly unpopular Forever War. Back when Americans knew what we were talking about when we talked about freedom.
