The notion that any one person or group of individuals could successfully carry out an attack resulting in the consequences surrounding the events of September 11, 2001, was inconceivable to most Americans. It was a time when nobody found it suspicious a flight student would want to learn how to fly a plane but had no interest in learning how to land one. With only a half-million-dollar investment and 20 recruits, al-Qaeda promoted an ideology that changed the world, ultimately costing trillions of dollars and countless lives. The fateful events on that day left no doubt threats to the air transportation system need to be taken seriously and a failure of imagination isn’t something we should suffer from ever again.
