9/11 and the N. Y. Times

Last night I saw the Managing editor of the N.Y. Times being interviewed by Pete Rose about 9/11. He asked her what question she would ask or what was the thing that most surprised her about 9/11. Her response it is a great Mystery why another 9/11 event had not occurred. She said I don’t understand why we haven’t been hit again. Some of these possibilities would never occur to an editor at the N.Y. Times.

Maybe George W. Bush and the brave soldiers sailors airmen police FBI CIA NSA Customs Border Patrol Dept. of Homeland Security etc. working under the policies of this President has kept it from happening despite the desirers and best efforts of the Terrorists.

Maybe the Terrorists are busy in Iraq and Afghanistan or the more primitive “tribal” areas of Pakistan dodging predator drones and otherwise trying to stay alive and undetected.

Maybe the taking out of 75% of Al Queada’s leadership (killed or captured) has something to do with it.

Maybe there is Divine intervention.

It will probably remain a mystery to the N.Y. Times.
