9/11 was a crime

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, August 03, 2004

9/11 wasn't an act of war, because it wasn't done to us by a nation. It was a crime perpetrated by a criminal and his followers. A crime deserving a thorough investigation (which the Bush administration stonewalled for two and a half years and which has yet to provide results). Osama and Al Qaeda were initially funded by Osama's father, a business partner of Bush Sr. To prevent a recurrence, we must fully investigate who was involved and how they pulled it off. Remember the words of James Madison, folks: "No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."
