Thomas Friedman worries we've become the "United States of Fighting Terrorism." 

... He's not that we shouldn't fight terrorism -- but he thinks we've let 9-11 define us:
Before 9/11, the world thought America’s slogan was: “Where anything is possible for anybody.” But that is not our global brand anymore. Our government has been exporting fear, not hope: “Give me your tired, your poor and your fingerprints.”

... Al Qaeda is about 9/11. We are about 9/12, we are about the Fourth of July — which is why I hope that anyone who runs on the 9/11 platform gets trounced.

Thoughts?
