‘We Are Totally Unprepared’ – Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal
Every government report of the past eight years points to a terrorist attack on U.S. soil as not only likely but virtually certain. But almost nine years after 9/11, a report just released from the Inspector General of the Justice Department shows how ill-prepared and out of touch our government agencies are in dealing with a WMD incident. There is not an entity or individual with clear responsibility for managing a response. Resources have not been catalogued, and there are no written plans or checklists in case of an attack. In light of the apathetic response in the first 30 days and the ongoing finger pointing by this administration to the catastrophic oil mess in the Gulf, what can we citizens expect should we face an attack of greater proportions than those of 9/11?
