Intelligent consumers

The September 11 Commission is a festering boil being lanced slowly. It is leaking stories designed to make it appear that the WTC tragedy was W's fault for not acting sooner, for not connecting the dots.

The only way to have stopped it was to initiate a war on terror during the Summer of 2001 - if not open warfare, then certainly the mindset and defensive position of war.
