Revenge of the Repressed

Interesting thoughts on 9/11 from Billmon at Whiskey Bar.

NewMexiKen has been troubled that the nation has responded to that day in a purely reactive manner — orange alerts, taking our shoes off to get through airport security, police cruisers and light artillery guarding the Pentagon from Route 110. Perhaps it is just me, but I fear we are no more prepared for the general or specific act of terrorism in this country than we were 31 months ago. Maybe the 9/11 Commission will provide us with some lessons learned.
