9/11 Anniversary: Are You Safer Now?

Dueling video presentations on this sad 6th anniversary of the "terrorist" attack on the World Trade Center in New York. The final death toll, 2,750, keeps changing.

Osama bin Laden's video team issued a "new" camcorder statement. Thus, he's still alive, ordering his followers to "join a caravan of martyrs."

General Petraeus testified in front of Congress with nothing new to say and many questions about how the military "counts" the death toll on the ground in Iraq. One NYT Blog commenter's says the General "merely informs you in diplomatic language that he does not have a military solution to a political vacuum."

Meanwhile, the day passed without any terror attacks on US soil. Just the quiet nightmare scenario of "ten more years" of our soldiers' on the line in Iraq as one observer close to the deliberations puts it.

Our seventh year after the 9/11 event begins tomorrow.
