3:32 pm
well -- it was certainly someone needs to take responsibility. for the complete guide negligence and underer a responsibilityty of and to act n multiple warnings. of these attacks whether that should be the people in the police the army intelligence agencies or more likely the politicians. that remains to be seen but i'm what almost never happens we lock our politicians actually themselves accepting responsibility in resigning. were that to happen it might make some difference. and in terms of keeping show like a safe. from another attack. it sounds like from what you're saying the correct steps are being taken yet. well i will havee to let you see exactly what the steps are in anand who is who is being you signed it was being fired exactly. i don't have the details. but i think there's going to be a lot of skepticism -- as long as those in. and the top remain and refused to take any real responsibility
