    how the terrorists managed to pick the day that the exercise during which a simulated plane was hijaacked into the NRO office was being conducted.  The confusion (we have all heard "real world or exercise" by now) played a part in the delayed response -- how much of one, well, I don't know.

    I think the explanation is probably a simple one.  A new crop of political appointees were at the Pentagon.  Unlike the career military, I'm sure they babbled about the neat things they were doing on the Metro on the way to and from work.

    The Metro is a very diverse place.  

    So the blame can be put at the foot of the Bush administration -- misfeasance, not malfeasance, but blame nontheless.  Otherwise, we have way too much of a coincidence.
