The 9/11 Report – a brief observation

The 9/11 Report is going to be extensively analyzed and discussed by people far more intelligent than me, so there isn’t much for me to comment on. But this passage caught my eye: “Across the government, there were failures of imagination, policy, capabilities and management…”

Okay, I have one question: since when did we start expecting our government to succeed in the realm of ‘imagination’? Anyone who is expecting government to flourish in the use of ‘imagination’ hasn’t spent enough time studying governments and bureaucratic systems.


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
