I have had little to say about the 9/11 commission’s road show in New York. The idea of investigating what we could have done better in the past to know what we must do better in the future is a good one in theory, but I don’t see it happening here.
Giuliani puts it well:
NEW YORK (AP) –
Giuliani said the briefings he received from federal officials indicated that New York’s bridges, tunnels and subways were more likely targets.
“I do think the interpretation would have been more in the direction of suicide bombings than aerial attacks,” Giuliani said one day after his top commissioners were grilled over their Sept. 11 response.
“Our enemy is not each other, but the terrorists who attacked us,” Giuliani said. The mayor acknowledged there were “terrible mistakes” made on Sept. 11, but attributed that to the unprecedented circumstances.
“The blame should clearly be directed at one source and one source alone, the terrorists who killed our loved ones,” Giuliani said as family members broke into applause.
