REGARDLESS of who is responsible, clearly
1) Airline security measures are flawed;
2) The process for releasing prisoners from Gitmo appears flawed.
Those who are in a position NOW to correct these flaws should take prompt and appropriate action to correct the flaws.
It seems like homeland security "reacts" to each new approach to terrorism. Should they not be "anticipating" instead?
All the $ for health care insurance could not have helped over 3000 victims of 9-11, and the govt made provision for those who had residual effects. Global warming did not take those lives either.
