9/11/2021--With the departure from Afghanistan, 9/11 has finally ended. During these twenty years we have lost a great deal. America is divided and diminished. But the immediate crisis of radical Islamic terrorism is diminished as well. Attacks continue, but, as David Brooks has written, that path is not the future. And that is clear to most.
What is the future for Islam? What is has always been--a growing secularism. Growing unbelief. The example of the Taliban just brings that future closer.
