A timeline to tragedy.

Here is a fascinating compilation that contains some remarkable "color" with respect to this most tragic date and anniversary. I was struck in particular by the item listed under 6 a.m., "Bush Interview or Assassination Attempt?" Don't ask me why, but I'd never heard anything about this before...and I find it chilling, especially because the circumstances do indeed parallel the (successful) plot against Afghan Northern Alliance leader Ahmad Massoud just two days earlier.... And wouldn't that have been the coup-de-grace!

I guess there's little left to say on a day like this, nine years later, except perhaps to quote the memorable caveat from the watch commander on Hill Street Blues: "Let's be careful out there."
