I don't think Dr. Carlin would have changed his statement one bit because of 911. 911 did not make us more or less safe. It simply scared a bunch of folk who thought they were safe into thinking they were going to make themsevles safe.
I'm not happy about the loss of lfe 911 caused, but I don't think that alone is even a slightly good reasoon to give up our freedom. Heck more lives have been given in Iraq since then - lives that our government intentionally sent into harms way. It's very simple, if our country valued those lives so much they would not have been lost - not to mention the 100's of thousands of Iraqis lives.
