Then-Vice President Dick Cheney wrote: “In April 2001, when Nick Lemann of the New Yorker magazine asked me about the nature of the threat facing the United States, I said, ‘I think we have to be more concerned than we ever have about so-called homeland defense, the vulnerability of our system to different kinds of attacks. Some of it homegrown, like Oklahoma City. Some inspired by terrorists external to the United States–the World Trade Towers bombing, in New York. The threat of a terrorist attack against the U.S., eventually, potentially, with weapons of mass destruction–bugs or gas, biological, or chemical agents, potentially even, someday, nuclear weapons.’ “ [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
