Well, actually they are saying that we are not ready for a catastrophic attack on the country. It didn't say we can't defend ourselves.
"In response, Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, chief of U.S. Northern command, said the Pentagon is putting together a specialized military team that would be designed to respond to such catastrophic events.
'The capability for the Defense Department to respond to a chemical, biological event exists now," Renuart told the AP. "It, today, is not as robust as we would like because of the demand on the forces that we've placed across the country. ... I can do it today. It would be harder on the (military) services, but I could respond.'"
Translation: We could defend ourselves, it's just gonna be messy.
