A Simple Question

Since 9/11, how many federal employees have been fired for the security and intelligence lapses that allowed the attacks to proceed? I seem to recall that perhaps one or more people at Logan Airport were dismissed or otherwise punished, but at the federal level, I can't think of anyone. I don't remember hearing about any FBI, CIA, or NSA employees being fired, and certainly no Presidential appointees have lost their jobs.

America is the most fault-finding, most blame-assigning nation on Earth. If ever there was a case where fault should be found and blame assigned -- to help prevent its repetition -- this is it.
