In Memoriam

September 11th, 2001

NYC, VA, PA

On September 11th, 2001 approximately 3,000 people died and it took over 9 years to find the individual most responsible – why?

In the intervening years we have spent hundreds of billions of dollars, trampled on peoples rights, created huge new government bureaucracies, and can’t respond as well as the third world to a natural disaster.

Richard Clarke: “Your government failed you. Those entrusted with protecting you failed you. And I failed you. We tried hard. But that doesn’t matter, because we failed. And for that failure, I would ask, once all the facts are out, for your understanding and for your forgiveness.
