One of the topics on my talk show this morning was whether the “chaos” on 9/11 was a failure of our goverment and military, as the media described it; or the inevitable result of a massive, successful terrorist attack. It was amazing how many people want to believe that the America of pre-9/11 could have stopped the unforseen 9/11 attack.
Here’s one media take:
“Kristen Breitweiser of Middletown Township, N.J., whose husband, Ronald, died in the World Trade Center, said a lack of foresight on the part of those agencies was compounded by mistakes on the morning of Sept. 11.
’I think we were ill-prepared, and I think people showed poor judgment,’ Breitweiser said. The airliner that crashed into the Pentagon, in particular, could have been stopped, she contends.
