You can't come to grips with mistakes being rewarded on purpose. Not by a slip-up, which is purely unintended. Those happen here or there, but that's all.
9/11 was rewarded for these mistakes repeatedly, which proves the rewards were given for incompetence. For their part in allowing the mass murder to unfold as planned.
That is what makes it all so despicable. They helped allow a mass murder, and were given rewards for it.
They didn't intentionally allow the 911 attacks to take place. The CIA and the FBI blew it, but in no way does that constitute proof of a government 911 conspiracy. Bush and Rice blew it as well, but blunders will continue to plague policy makers because there are those who just don't learn from history and future policy makers who don't learn from that history will continue to make errors as well and some will pay a heavy price while others will get off with a slap on the wrist. Question is: how long will the American public put up with politicians who don't play by the rules?
