Response to TNNurse (Original post)

25. It should be a day of starting the national embarrassment for this country.

The Bush administration had a priority report on their desk that Bin Laden was planning an attack using airplanes. They ignored it. Then our reaction of Iraq when Randi Rhodes and others were yelling there were no weapons and it was a war ploy. Then Afghanistan, so many dead.

Then the stupid security theater at air ports. Followed by draconian laws. And a 20 year profit campaign by the military idustrial complex.

Instead of using the trillions to make our infrastructure the best on earth, instead of improving our intelligence capabilities, we reacted like a country of rabid fools.

Those who had loved ones lost that day should grieve like anyone who lost any loved one does on the day their loved one passed. But the rest of the country should see it as the start of our national humiliation.
