  • Why there should be any finger-pointing is beyond me; reminder: we’re all on the same team in this case! I would say it’s reasonable to determine culpability, but to do so without facts just seems like a rush to judgement. Let’s wait to see where the investigation goes before we start the witch-hunt. If Tamerlan truly slipped through the cracks and it’s determined as a result of lazy investigations, then fire the individual(s) responsible.

    Well it would appear to me that up until recently he hadn’t done anything illegal so why should the FBI have done something earlier? I’m glad he won’t be tried as an enemy combatant, I’ve never been comfortable with any designation that allows habeas corpus to get tossed out. And as far as the finger pointing, going to need some more evidence that the FBI even had a reason to do something earlier, from what this story says there is no information about that.

    I wonder how many investigations have been conducted and how many attacks have been avoided. A few people who plan an attack are going to be successful. They can’t reduce the risk to zero.

    If we’d had these sort of politicians back in December of 1941, they’d have spent all of 1942 arguing over who really attacked Pearl Harbor.

  • DD, agree with Gen Hayden’s statement.

    CJ, well, wasn’t it FDR who was working in concert with the League of Nations to bring the US into the war? A cousin of a cousin of an uncle of a grandparent of mine reportedly saw a peeling Japanese sun sticker on a Kamikazee plane, underneath which was an American flag. No, there’s no photographic evidence… *sarcasm*
