      The key to minimizing the possibility of 9/11 happening was within our own borders, and no one realized it.

        the FBI realized it. We just didn't have legal grounds to do anything.

          IMO, the real threat is still within our borders.

            I think pretty much everyone underestimated the threat before 9/11. We all know that.

            We need to focus on what to do going forward. Worrying about who deserves the most blame in the past is pointless except for the history books.

                Exact-a-mundo.

                The problem I am more interested in is: have we done everything possible SINCE 9/11? That's the part of the Clarke interview that most interested me.

                    Those that ignore the mistakes of history are bound to repeat them.

                    The purpose, I would hope, is not to dwell on past mistakes-- or to assess blame-- but rather to fully understand and learn from them!
                    Norman Chad, syndicated columnist: “Sports radio, reflecting our sinking culture, spends entire days advising managers and coaches, berating managers and coaches, firing managers and coaches and searching the countryside for better middle relievers. If they just redirected their energy toward, say, crosswalk-signal maintenance, America would be 2 percent more livable.”

                    "The best argument against democracy," someone (Churchill?) said, "is a five minute conversation with the average voter."

                        Wolfowitz went a bit after Clarkie today for his use of analogy....

                          When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

                            He refuted Clarke's claims that he told them 'not too worry aboot a-Q' and Clakre used his analogy of Hitler's use of Mein Kampf, which Wolfowitz used as he always looks into any claims for precisely that reason....

                            (I doubt that makes sense, so wait for the update's on the evening news!!)

                            BTW, the committee just praised Rumsfeld for the numerous amount of time he's devoted to this issue for the committee, fwiw...
