Look, I’m all for reaming a government official if they screwed up something, and I’m still a bit off when thinking about the WTC attacks, but enough about it already. Right now, I just keep seeing the “who did this” and “why [the other party] should be blamed”. Shut the fuck up, all of you because you’re slowly giving me gout.
Has anyone on this commission thought that there might not be a smoking gun to uncover? Anyone? None that I’ve seen in the news. How quick would the Democrats on the panel be to point out any uncovered flaws – assuming there are any – if they are tracked back to Billy Boy? The Republicans aren’t behaving any better; it’s disgusting. 9-11 should not be about party politics: stop using it like you’re kissing a damned baby!
And I can’t even begin to empathize with the families of the victims… I know they want answers but sometimes… sometimes, there aren’t any to give. There are things that happen without any advanced warning and no steps taken could have prevented. Sometimes you can only fix the problem and not affix the blame on someone: go ask Bin-Laden for answers, if that fuck ever comes out of his hole.
And about the infamous “memo“… unless it drew a bulls eye on the south tower and showed a very large and hijacked jet flying into it, it’s not very helpful. Even with advanced warning of an attack on a skyscraper… how does the US react to that? How can you protect every skyscraper within our borders? Keep jets on the roof and at alert 24/7? Put SAM sites in metropolitan NYC? I don’t think there was a way for our government to stop this, this first time around. [If a terrorist cell tries to nick a plane with Americans on it, they won’t get far: Americans will fight back on planes, if only to save lives on the ground (or so we will think). We were always told to be calm and complacent with hijackers because they weren’t out to hurt their hostages – those days are long since over.] Life sucks sometimes, regardless of who’s in charge – beating a situation like this to a pulp will only make it worse.
Get it done and get the hell off my news screen.
