    You criticized others for bringing politics into this, and then you brought politics into this!

    I didn't realize that you were so concerned about borders which were covered by water.

    Which terrorists are you expecting to arrive by boat?

    Fill us and the U.S. Government in.
    It doesn't matter how I think they could have prevented it or how I think they failed, what matters most, as you clearly know, is that they did fail. The most important thing now is to get a complete and accurate accounting of the events in which we can glean a full understanding of them. And in order to get that, we need transparency. It best serves so we don't have episodes like this again.

    There is no evidence of failure. The bad guys won a round. That is going to happen every now and then even if the good guys do everything right. Bobby Bowden once observed that among the most valuable things he learned as a young football coach was that "the other team has players on scholarship too."

    I'm not trying to be critical in a negative or Alex Jones kind of way. I feel horrible about what happened yesterday in Boston. There's no excuse for something like that. But when the "bad guys win a round", that is failure on the part of our government. There are still barbarians at the gate, there is evidence of that in the news everyday and yesterday, it was brought to our homeland, and we failed to protect ourselves from it. I'm not going to sit here and beat the government over the head for it, though. I hate to say it, but it's not as big a failure as 9/11 or Pearl Harbor. But it was a failure, nonetheless. Anytime the government does not protect us civilians from things like that, it is failure on their part because it is their function to protect us from things like that. The men running around carrying guns, bomb-dogs, etc - agents of the law - they failed. There's simply no getting around that.

    It sucks. But it is reality. And it is the truth.

    No. It is not the truth. There is loss in all wars, even on the winning side.
