A lot has been written with the passing of the 10th annivesary of 9/11/2001.
However, the best on 9/11 I’ve read to date in terms of matching my feelings about what’s happened was this post on SlashDot (warning, lots of righteous use of profanity)
My version of things is based on that, with some reflection and a different perspective.
9/11 CAN’T HAPPEN AGAIN… it couldn’t have happened on 9/12/2001 even with no changes other that the knowledge now carried by every passenger as to the real threat posed by hijackers.
The only really good money spent since 9/11 was on better cockpit doors.
We should have responded to the Crimes of 9/11 using the International Police, and the Intelligence agencies of the world.
ALL of the warfare in response to 9/11 was wasted and wrong.
We faced down the USSR, and didn’t give up our rights, why did we let 19 guys do to us what decades of cold war couldn’t?
