The 9/11 Commission has went too far. It needs to be de-commissioned and is a waste of taxpayer money. In case you are not following, the commission was put together to find out what happened on 9/11 (I thought evil terrorists flew planes into buildings). In USA political speak, it was put together to point fingers. The 9/11 commission came to New York yesterday.
The 9/11 commission hearing yesterday in Manhattan turned into a series of angry finger-pointing exchanges — and one panel member ripped the city's response to the World Trade Center attack as "not worthy of the Boy Scouts."
I have never been so angry in my life. The emergency response team of the City of New York are absolute heroes. Every last one of them. I personally worked at the September 11th Fund for almost a year working on a database that distributed donations to the widows and orphans of the over 350 deceased cops and firemen. The money came from average Americans. They seem to agree with me.
To suggest that the emergency service people did not do a good job or even to suggest that they were unprepared is simply wrong and proof that the 9/11 commission has taken itself too seriously. Before 9/11 the largest disaster the city had to deal with was maybe a bad hurricane, not terrorists flying 767s into buildings. The fire department usually loses 3 or 4 firemen a year in bad fires. That day over 350 firemen died while responding to fires on the top floors of the world’s 3rd and 4th tallest buildings. Then those buildings collapsed and it took over 3 months to put the fires out and almost a year to clean up the debris.
So 9/11 Commission, why not do the right thing and resign and go home. Oh the report you are going to deliver in the summer? I can sum it up for you here and save the taxpayers money:
