Reading about the deadly attacks in Libya by religious extremists armed and empowered by the United States in the recent regime change operation there, I was reminded of something from a piece I wrote long ago, the day after 9/11: 

“Murder is fertile: it breeds more death, like a spider laden with a thousand eggs.”

One thing for certain: no matter which of the candidates now exploiting the latest incident for partisan gain wins in November (and oh what bitter comedy there is in watching the progressosphere sternly denounce Mitt Romney for “politicizing national security” by attacking President “I Killed Bin Laden So Vote for Me” Obama), this hideous dynamic — continually refueled by Washington’s Terror War system — will keep breeding its horrors.
