A Failure of Imagination

A Failure of Imagination

Bill C. Davis

9/11 was said to be more a failure of imagination than intelligence - the implication being that no one could imagine planes being intentionally flown into buildings. (As it turns out there were several people who not only imagined it, but also knew it was a weapon of choice for some.) As we listen to Bush and his handlers do their infomercial for war in Iraq, the challenge again seems to be more to our imagination than to our intelligence.
