We previously looked at some of the details of the 911 attacks on the Twin Towers (New York) and the Pentagon (Virginia). Today we move on to consider a bit more about those who participated in those attacks. While they were under the al-Qaeda organization, they utilized intelligence from a variety of sources and by logic should have been detected and prevented from boarding their flights.
We have had nine years in which to study these tactics, but no one really feels like we have put into place the safeguards that would keep our country safe from more such attacks. The main response seems to have been to strip personal freedoms from the general population. When will government get things right?
Let us learn to be diligent and alert to those who would attack this great land of ours. But let us NOT lose sight of the liberties that brave men and women patriots have fought hard for over the years.
Long may our flag wave over the land of the free and the home of the brave. GLB
