one obvious rational approach to figuring out how to prevent future
attacks would be to analyze how it was that we failed to prevent the
9/11 events. and yet the administration has done nothing but resist the
commission that is studying this very question.
and this behavior seems to follow couple of larger themes of this
administration, both of which strike me as being completely ass-backwards:
--this leadership has such faith that it already knows the truth that it
only wants to hear about science and intelligence (the CIA type) that
support what we believe.
--a belief policy should be crafted to support desired political ideals.
when i believe the converse of these to be true:
--that the truth will never be fully known, but our best way of
discovering it is an unbiased review of what science and intelligence
are showing us.
--politics should crafted to support desired policy ideals
and the whole time they are perpetrating this pudding headed logic on
our government they seek to sell us this approach as "having integrity
and vision". it's fundamentalism pure and simple and it has just as
corrosive an effect on governance here in the U.S. as it does in any
