Two years later, United States really not safer than it was

Posted: Thursday, September 11, 2003

As we mark the second anniversary of the Sept. 11th tragedy, we need to be reminded that, in the immediate aftermath, the public thought that the massive appropriations made by Congress would somehow make our 2001Thanksgiving travel safer.

Recent news has shown what knowledgeable insiders already knew: that government normally moves at a glacial pace and certain programs funded to make us "safer" are even now not ready to be put in place.

In short, we are really no more "safer" two years later, but we still have to pay for it.
