Every fast day on the Jewish calendar has its set of selichot that are said. The one exception to this is Tisha B'Av. This seems counter-intuitive to me because Tisha B'Av is the day when we mourn the destruction of the first and second Temples, which were destroyed because of our sins. It seems like Tisha B'Av should have selichot even more so than other fast days. So why do we not say them?
