Averting 9/11: How close we came

I took a little trip to Ohio yesterday, and with nothing else on the radio I listened to alot of these hearings on NPR. Fascinating stuff really: the inner workings of the national security establishment exposed. But Sandy Berger, Clinton's National Security Advisor, came up with the quote of the day:

History is written looking in a rear view mirror, but unfolds across a foggy windshield.

A nifty ways of saying that hindsight is always 20/20.

Terror commission hearings show the changed context since 9/11, and the difficulties in curbing Al Qaeda.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
