The craft of war: Boingboing links to a site selling Afghan rugs, including several that depict airplanes crashing into the Twin Towers. To be clear, the depictions seem to be both a historical record and a celebration of the American "liberation" of Afghanistan, not a commemoration of the attacks (a point some fail to grasp).

And: In the age of the Patriot Act and the MATRIX data surveillance program, isn't the "Uncle Sam Window Peeper" craft item a bit ominously titled?
