Did Anyone Else Catch This?

Blumenthal today, in Salon (by subscription), talks about W's disdain for law and order with his preference for war preznittin'. Nothing new there but the thought just hit me: if the "son of a bitch in the White House" had actually paid attention to law and order, along with national security, as he was warned by the outgoing Clinton administration a few months earlier, he may have prevented 9/11 in the first place. In other words, they're saying that pursuit of terrorists before they strike is a waste of time and only for pansies. But, if they had paid attention to these pursuits in the first place, we may not have had a catastrophe like we had on 9/11. Of course, Bush wouldn't have had his beloved war and he would most certainly have been a one-termer since his popularity was in the toilet before people buried their heads in the flag.

Just sayin'. Of course, if I fucked up something so egregiously I might claim that it was a useless activity to begin with as well, if I felt like not taking responsibility for my actions.
