Alternative history

Alternative history is pretty much the only kind of science fiction that I like.  It is a bit unusual for an engineer, but that's the way it is.  I like history, and I like analyzing "what if?" scenarios.  One of authors specializing in alternative history is former Speaker Newt Gingrich.  On September 10, 2007, he gave a speech at the American Enterprise Institute on an alternative scenario of what might have happened had we took overall Islamist threat more seriously and confronted it more aggressively after September 11, 2001.  Read it here.  Or listen to it by clicking this image:

There is nothing to excerpt.  Just read it or listen to it.  It is very important in order to understand the fight we are in.
