Eleven commercial jets have reportedly been stolen in recent weeks in Libya, and Western intelligence agencies have begun warning they could be used in terror attacks on 9/11, the anniversary of the devastating Osama bin Laden-orchestrated attacks on New York and Washington that left nearly 3,000 dead.

The thing to do, of course, is scramble our fighter jets and keep them patrolling the American skies, especially near big cities, nuclear reactors, and other high-value targets, at least until the 12th of this month. What do you want to be that Obama will do just that? (And if you believe that, have I got a bridge for you*! A real steal at just $150,000, suitable as a conversation piece or for your child's playground. Of course, you have to go to Brooklyn to pick it up, but . . .)

Something terrible here will have to happen before Obama acts in a decisive way (more than these bombings) or the American people demand action. I just hope it is not too horrid, but I don't feel good about this at all. Most of my friends don't talk about this, they have their heads in the sand. My roommate here, one of my new ones, watched BBC news with me the other day and deliberately kept her eyes closed like she was sleeping through the part about ISIS. She opened them after that. How apt!

Your friend's reaction is horrifying -- but not unexpected. Yes, I also believe that we're in for something awful, and soon, involving those jetliners (thought some of them might be used in Europe). It likely won't wake up people like your friend -- they'll claim it's all a hoax perpetrated by the US government, or by George Dubya Bush, and refuse to acknowlede or even look at evidence of it. Meanwhile, countless other people will mourn our dead and cry out against the disaster(s) -- but won't fault our current presidential administration's non-responses to terrorism for letting it happen. Both types of behavior are evidence of denial of the most thoroughgoing, pathological sort. I fear for our country and her people.
