Patrick fends off critics of 9/11 speech

From the Boston Globe:
Governor Deval Patrick tried yesterday to fend off criticism he has received over his Sept. 11 memorial service speech, when he said the terrorist attacks six years ago resulted in part from "a failure of human understanding."

"Frankly, I was taught in my church that all violent attack is a failure of human understanding," he said during an appearance on WTKK-FM radio yesterday. "The families, in the time I spent with them that day after the ceremony, were just absolutely lovely and appreciative."
What church do you belong to? We really need to know as a public service warning. You sir are an idiot, a failure of human understanding... I understand them just fine, they hate the U.S. and western culture you pip squeak!
Presiding over the state's memorial ceremonies for the first time, Patrick on Tuesday morning called the events of Sept. 11, 2001, "a mean and nasty and bitter attack on the United States.

"But it was also about the failure of human beings to understand each other and to learn to love each other," he said. "It seems to me that lesson [of] that morning is something that we must carry with us every day."
No, what we must carry with us is that these people will stop at nothing to bring us down; nothing. And there is nothing short of wiping them out that will suffice.
