It's 9/11 again, and yet ...

... we still don't have all the answers from that day.

Forget about all the ridiculous conspiracy theories about what happened that day. Stuff like bombs being placed in the World Trade Center and missiles being fired into the Pentagon and ever crazier weirder things!

What you should think about is the how? As in, how could this have happened with all the warnings about that day, which came for years and years and years and were very very very specific?

This was NOT a failure of imagination, as posited by the 9/11 Commission. We imagined this attack. We even prepared for it. For years.

We just did not prevent it. And the question is why?

I've written about it.

So where is the news about that on this sacred and tragic day? Even all this time, and no one in the mainstream press is talking about it.

To their credit, the New York Times editorializes about this today in "The Deafness Before the Storm." Read it. This is not a political attack on sitting president, it is an indictment of a president who failed to protect us 11 years ago today.

If you are not outraged, you're not paying attention.
