“[T]he largest effect of 9/11 upon America is that it became distracted,” writes Professor Paul Kennedy, director of International Security Studies, in an op-ed in Today online titled “An America adrift.”

“In the first place,” he avers, “it was distracted from many other things that are going on in the world. Secondly, it has been distracted from the erosion of its financial strength and international competitiveness.”
