We Failed You 

Richard Clarke opened up his testimony before the 9-11 Commission by addressing the families of the victims of the attacks. Here's what he said:

Your government failed you. Those entrusted with protecting you failed you. I failed you. We tried hard, but we failed you...I ask for your understanding, and your forgiveness.

I don't know what to say. And that's pretty rare (I'm often to lazy to say anything, but rarely have nothing to say at all).

UPDATE: Consider this in contrast with Condie Rice's statements:

It's all your fault this happened. I hate you all.


(note: she never said that)
