Do you think the report by the 9-11 commission will have a positive impact on the nation’s readiness for terrorist attacks?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 24, 2004
“No, because no matter what comes out it will be manipulated for a political purpose. It’s all grist for the mill.”
“No, because they’re going to ignore the findings. It would get in the way of politics as usual to make any changes.”
“I think it’s going to be like what we saw in ‘Fahrenheit 9/11,’ where the legislators hadn’t read the Patriot Act.”
“I don’t think so. If you could predict terrorism it wouldn’t be terrorism. It’s an illusion. They’re saying they can do something about it, but they really can’t.”
