So now it is the 6th Anniversary of 9/11. Here are my thoughts from last year.
Are we safer?
More to the point, if this is indeed a conflict the likes of the Second Wold War, why have we not taken more steps to defeat the enemy.
Osama bin Laden is still at large. And it seems using Just for Men to color his beard.
Do we have an energy policy? Our addiction to oil is a national security issue that on one seems interested in addressing.
Are our ports safer?
Is cargo sent by plane screened?
Have the American people been ask to sacrifice anything (other than those in uniform)?
The answer is no.
And that means we really aren't any safer than we were six years ago.
Will next year be any different?
