Comments: Also, they knew Michael Jackson liked children, but they had no indication that he was some kind of whacked-out nutcase

Right. Like Bush would have said, "Don't worry about it. Airplanes only hold, what, two or three hundred people? No big whoop. Let's talk about tax cuts."

To top it off, the Genoa summit - which Bush attended - had its airspace closed off due to security advisors wishing to avoid someone crashing an airplane into a building of world leaders. So for anyone to say they couldn't imagine planes being used as missiles is a crock of shit. Thomas Harris imagined a frickin' blimp crashing into the Super Bowl!
