for the Middle Eastern regimes the terrorists despise and have also increased Western tolerance for, and collaboration with, these regimes’ long-standing practices of severe repression of dissent and of Islamic dissent in particular. To be sure, the terrorists of September11 would have welcomed the demise of Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq, which their attacks facilitated; but they would not have welcomed the way he fell, the occupation of Iraq by Western troops, or the emerging successor regime. Their attacks predictably endangered the Taliban regime in

resource cuts were swiftly followed up with changes to the law limiting what parts
of the Australian Parliament were subject to FOI. Japan in 2014 passed secrecy legislation that cut into its FOI, while the relaunched Danish FOI Act in 2013 added

as Uncle Sam with a severed Osama Bin Laden head set up across from the
park to counter protest our sharing of vegetable soup. While Uncle Sam’s
papier-mâché work was fantastic, his message was downright frightening:

interviewed from San Francisco Food Not Bombs argued that the group’s actions
following the earthquake were a reason that Art Agnos backed off arresting
Food Not Bombs activists during the second half of his term as mayor. Food
Not Bombs activists have also been at the forefront in relief after the September11 terrorist attacks in New York City and after the devastation of
