Are we at war with terrorism, or aren't we? From the way Congress and the Transportation Department are acting, it seems that we are simply saddled with more of the usual when it comes to bureaucratic and political maneuvers. Shamefully, Senators and Congressmen left The Capitol earlier this month for vacation without even appointing a commander of the Transportation Security Administration! Who ever heard of heading into battle without a general in charge.
Airline flight attendants are the country's unsung heroes in our current "War on Terrorism." Immediately after the World Trade Center and Pentagon terrorism events, the media was filled with stories about "real heroes" - rescuers, police and firefighters who risked their lives to save workers in those buildings.
