Introduction byRichard Aborn
want to thank you all for coming. And Iwant to start tonight as I start many of these events with a thank you – actuallyanumber of thank yous. I first want to startwith Tom Moran who can’t be with ustonight. As you know Tom Moran is the CEOof Mutual of America. Tom has time andtime and time again – arranged for us to be inthis space. Mutual of America is an incredi- bly generous organization and Tom, himself is an incredibly generous man. So I thanhim on behalf of the Crime Commission.Ialso want to do another thank you. But before I do that I want to start off this eventwith an observation. It’ll come as no shock to anyone that the theme of the talk tonightis about terrorism and counter-terrorism.And when I think about that issue at a very broadlevel, not at an operational level, butatavery broad level, I think it’s really aboutthree things. Three core values if you will.The first corevalue is about courage. It’sthe courage that is spoken about in this townand in London very frequently; but cannot be said enough: The courage of so manypeople that charged into the burning towersonSeptember 11th and charged deep intothe Underground in London during the hor-rible bombings there. These brave individu-als charged into those structures not know-ing what else might be coming, men andwomen in uniform who, without hesitation,risked their own lives to help others. Peoplethey did not know and they did it at a timewhen probably every fiber in their body wasscreaming, “I want to go the other way.” Butthey charged in and they would do it againandagain. We owe an eternal gratitude tothose people, an eternal gratitude.1
