And here I hope you’ll all join me in offering condolences to two of the attack’s biggest victims. First Larry Silverstein, devastated by the loss of three of his beloved WTC buildings – a loss admittedly assuaged by a subsequent massive insurance payout.
Dov Zakheim, the second beneficiaries of our condolences, might at first glance appear an unlikely victim. But he is. You see Zak had the misfortune to mislay three thousand billion dollars during his stint overseeing Department of Defense finances. And the team investigating the loss, who Zak was confident would have found him totally blameless, were wiped out by the missile – I mean plane – that hit the Pentagon that day. Together with all the evidence they had accumulated. Imagine how Zak must have felt when he heard that!
Anyway, my commiserations and condolences to both of you guys on this sad occasion.
