Regardless, if that list is the worst of it I am even more impressed. At the risk of sounding callous, those events and the potential damage are fairly minor in the grand scheme of things.
I agree. That said, I don't think that we should give the government credit for doing what they should have been doing all along. 9/11 could have been avoided much like this event. It wasn't. While I applaud them for doing their jobs, I can't help but think that they should have been doing their jobs on 9/11. I say this believing that Michael Moore is quite possibly the biggest tool on the planet so that no one comes here and plays the Moore card.
As for my original statement, a Chris Rock routine asking if someone wants a cookie comes to mind.
The problem before 9/11 was the fact that terrorists were considered criminals and not enemies of the state. The military had their reservations about getting involved. At least that was part of the problem. I'm sure it's more than that.
