America Mourns with France

France will no doubt have it's revenge for the attacks.
A Politco article published on Friday was a great read, other than reinforcing the fact that the Bush Administration totally dropped the ball in the months leading up till 9/11/2001 - there was this passage that struck me:
“You can't kill your way out of this,” says Tenet. “It's not sustainable. The message to Islam itself is they have to create vibrant civil societies that work, that create educational opportunities. But this is something they have to do for themselves.” Panetta agrees that the roots of terrorism must be dealt with: “You've got to address what it is that produces this frustration and this anger. It is almost Mission Impossible because, for God’s sake, we're still trying to figure out how the hell the Baltimores of the world happen; how the hell the Detroits of the world happen; why there are people that are attracted to gangs in this country.”

Stay optimistic planet earth, we're in this together:
