Well, another anniversary of the 9/11 attacks against the United States is just about over. With all that is happening in the world, I was fortunately wrong in predicting that this was the year that another anniversary terror attack would happen today. We made it through another one.
But how? Are we just lucky that no one pulled off an attack today? I think not.
We have law enforcement officers on local, state and federal levels, as well as our international partners, who have surely prevented attacks planned for this day. We will never know about it, since all of this stuff is done under the radar. But luck isn’t what happened. International cooperation with all levels of law enforcement, the intelligence community, and the hard work of a multitude of dedicated individuals is what kept us safe today.
Thank you to those faceless, nameless heroes. We may not say it enough, but we appreciate it.
