Angry Americans



Dear Ed.,

I fell and understand Anita Anderson's pain and anger, but typically, it is misdirected. Personally, I'd be severely pissed at my own government for such a colossal failure of domestic security. Given the well documented facts that Mr Ashcroft stopped flying commercial aircraft four weeks before the 9/11 attack. 24/7 CAP patrols were started over GWB's Texas ranch four weeks prior to 9/11. Five of the suicide pilots received flight training at American military institutions. Be angry Anita, but direct it where it belongs, squarely at the feet of your current administration.


As for terrorists blowing Dublin of the map, I suppose, were the Irish government sending its troops all over the globe propping up dictators and oligarchies, that would be a possibility.
