Jejudo, South Korea
Uh, who's Condit?
The airplane guy? I haven't been paying much attention to that. I suppose my lack of access to the television (only one channel, the military channel) is sometimes a blessing in disguise.
As far as the search for terrorists, would you include the money spent on Special Ops in the military? How about the money spent on intelligence agencies?
I don't quite know how you would calculate it.
Honestly, though, I'd just rather keep the two issues separate. I don't see the paradox, I see two different issues: one was distant, one was close.
I also don't think anyone really considered the possibility of 911. Do you remember the reports on terrorist threats before? Didn't they all have an air of 'this could happen someday but it won't happen tomorrow'?
They felt unreal to me anyway.
