We were caught unprepared. No one pre 9-11 wanted to do much either. Just like Pearl Harbor changed resolve, so did 9-11.

Another thought...I don't think a lot of people really believed something think that would happen here...to use passenger planes as weapons. We were caught with our pants down so to speak.

There were some attempts. In the early 90's I believe, there was another attack... in the subways I think, below the WTC. The USS Cole...The Beruit Embassy Marine Attacks, the Achilles Lauro, the Pan Am flight over Locherbie...true they weren't in the US but all signs that things were brewing. This wasn't against the US...but I remember the attack too at the Munich Olympics in the 70's. More signs of things to come. Nixon was President then with Kissenger at the helm for the state department and was seen as such a foreign policy genious. I am just thinking out loud now. I don't know if my answers will make any difference.

Once the iron curtain came down, things changed in the world. Communisum kept the door shut on a lot of stuff and activity.

These are just my ideas. I can't give you any concete answers.
