9/11 widow: no surprises in commission's dismal report card


MIDDLETOWN, N.J. (AP) - A 9/11 widow says she's disappointed by today's report from the commission, but not surprised.

Kristen Breitweiser says, "We saw how our nation handled Katrina." And she asks, "If we can't handle the aftermath of a hurricane, how could anyone conceivably believe that we could handle a terrorist attack?"

She said the report's conclusions and collection of failing grades represent, in her words, "nothing we haven't known for the last four years."

Breitweiser, who lost her husband Ronald in the World Trade Center attack, served on the family steering committee for the 9/11 commission.
