The War On Terror's Most Important Frontline

Written the very night of 9/11, I’ve thought from literally the first time I read it to this day that Charles Paul Freund’s “Apocalypse By Deed” was one of the most perceptive essays on that nightmarish day’s events. As Freund wrote, the events of 9/11 were planned to be a spectacular television horrorshow as much as they were coordinated to actually cause death and destruction.

In a long, detailed, and absolutely related essay, Steve Green has written that essay’s bookend: he looks at the most important front in America’s astonishingly postmodern War On Terror.
