THE 9-11 ERA IS OVER:

9/11 panel says US security still lax: Recommended actions not taken, report warns (Hope Yen, December 5, 2005, Associated Press)

The United States is at great risk for more terrorist attacks because Congress and the White House have failed to enact several strong security measures, members of the former Sept. 11 commission said yesterday.

''It's not a priority for the government right now," said the former chairman, Thomas Kean, in advance of the group's release of a report today assessing how well its recommendations have been followed.

''More than four years after 9/11 . . . people are not paying attention," the former Republican governor of New Jersey said.


The notion that Americans were going to spend the money or tolerate the inconvenience that the security such folk envision would require was always a non-starter. The Commission existed for political reasons, not national security ones.

These commission members think that we are in 3 separate and distinct wars: Iraq, Afghanistan and Terror.

This is much like the 3 wars we fought between 1941-1945: Japan, Germany and Italy.

Stupid hacks.

Just today's jab at Bush. There'll be at least one a day until next November.

Eventually, the media and the Democrats will stop jumping when the Jersey Girls snap their fingers. Then the screaming will start.

Well, they were crying in the newspapers this morning (because the government's grades, according to the Commission, were so poor).
