'We Have Some Planes'

That is the unfortunate title of Chapter 1 of a lenghty 13 chapter report put out yesterday by the 9/11 Commission. It’s sending chills through my body as I read it, I tell you. The report, which I have yet to read in its entirety, has an amazing amount of information that I’m sure will be priceless in the years to come.

I’ve only started to read Chapters 1, 12 & 13. Why only those chapters?

Well, Chapter 1 is filled w/ all the juicy parts about the unknown. Yes, that is a very horrible thing to say, but it’s my honest reaction when I read it. It is the unknown because I was not up in the airplane and our government has the tendency to conceal all audio & flight data from the public for sake of national security. It’s a subconscious reaction that I’m sure everyone experiences. Right?

Chapter 12 & Chapter 13 are quite possibly the most important chapters in the entire report. Everyone should at least skim through them because it’s the future! They are titled “What To Do?” & “How To Do It?,” respectively. Since terrorism is here to stay for the foreseeable future, it’s very important to read what the most powerful country in the world–the country with the largest army, largest stockpile of nuclear weapons & only God knows what else—is thinking about in terms of fighting terrorism.
