At Nineleven, a list was done up in a heartbeat - what happened, what could have prevented it, and what needs doing so that response and prevention will work better if it happens again! Not much is done yet - so we need to engage and email our leaders and help to GET IT DONE.
Just to name a few - no special details:
Better intelligence - we should have known and intercepted.
Better protection of major terrorist targets - I still pray for the response pilot whose health collapsed after tearing up from Washington to intercept , and there was not time. There was supposed to be someone nearby, but recession cutbacks meant that Manhattan was an easy hit.
Response tech with synced channels for crises across the entire response world. “The left hand did not know what the right hand was doing” at Ground Zero. Our superhero responders were lost, calling in data and reinforcements - without communications - lost and added to the casualties.
Better health and fitness, diet and equipment and ARMOR and non-deadly weapons to apprehend without killing bystanders…for all responders
MOST OF ALL: as a girl I saw the pods and other plans for rapid escape from planes and tall buildings: too much for 1956, but should have been DONE by 1976 and so in 2001, with no strong sure hi-tech escape and support till rescue might arrive, all those people died. There is a special place in the Devil’s home for those who suppressed that project….and continue to suppress it, when today, it’s easy and do-able by a dozen pathways and affordable. Details on request.
We won’t be forgiven, now that we know better, we must confront and win and inform the public and team with the world on these goals, and stop playing a defensive old-fashioned game - yesterday’s tools will not fix today’s works.
My wish and prayer is for EMPOWERMENT for all the people and powers needed to achieve in the Third Millennium. Please.
Thomas Paine said it in his famous “Peace in our Time” to the man who said he loved his children but would not act to protect, create and uphold a safe world for them. Love is an action word.
