Did anybody quit or lose his job because of 9/11? I do remember that former CIA director George Tenet won a Medal of Freedom.
In India, they do things a little differently:
MUMBAI, India — With an anguished Indian public angrily questioning government leaders in the wake of the deadly terror attacks on Mumbai, the leader of the state government offered to step down on Monday.
The chief minister of Maharashtra State, Vilasrao Deshmukh, a member of the governing Congress party, said at a press conference that he was accepting “moral responsibility” for the attacks. Party leaders were considering his offer to resign. Mumbai is the capital of Maharashtra State.
Earlier in the day, his deputy, R.R. Patil, officially stepped down. Mr. Patil’s departure and Mr. Deshmukh’s offer came a day after the country’s top domestic security official, Home Minister Shivraj Patil, resigned in disgrace over the failure to thwart or quickly contain the horrific attacks that left at least 188 dead.
