"I watched my husband murdered live on TV. . . . At any point in time the casualties could have been lessened, and it seems to me there wasn't even an attempt made."

"The Jersey Girls" only disgrace the memory of their husbands.

Television interviewers everywhere scrambled to land these guests--a far cry from the time, last June, when group leader Kristin Breitweiser spoke of her disappointment in the press, complaining to one journalist, "I've been scheduled to go on 'Meet the Press' and 'Hardball' so many times, and I'm always canceled."

I'm finding it harder and harder to feel much sympathy for this group of families.

Indeed. Their loss seems to be their gain.

But the best known and most quoted pronouncement of all had come in the form of a question put by the leader of the Jersey Girls. "We simply wanted to know," Ms. Breitweiser said, by way of explaining the group's position, "why our husbands were killed. Why they went to work one day and didn't come back."

The answer, seared into the nation's heart, is that, like some 3,000 others who perished that day, those husbands didn't come home because a cadre of Islamist fanatics wanted to kill as many of the hated American infidels in their tall towers and places of government as they could, and they did so. Clearly, this must be a truth also known to those widows who asked the question--though in no way one would notice.

Who, listening to them, would not be struck by the fact that all their fury and accusation is aimed not at the killers who snuffed out their husbands' and so many other lives, but at the American president, his administration, and an ever wider assortment of targets including the Air Force, the Port Authority, the City of New York? In the public pronouncements of the Jersey Girls we find, indeed, hardly a jot of accusatory rage at the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks. We have, on the other hand, more than a few declarations like that of Ms. Breitweiser, announcing that "President Bush and his workers . . . were the individuals that failed my husband and the 3,000 people that day."

Chris Matthews has had them on so many times this very week that he just refers to them as "The Wives."

AMEN -- Thank God,Dorothy. Well Said. Jersey girls should shut it and now! We're all sick of them. And they are an embarrassment to their deceased husbands and the country!

They look more and more like bitter witches. They need to take a look at Lisa Beamer, how she handled her loss with such grace and sought comfort in the Lord.

Because OBL had them killed! No one in this administration or the one before it is responsible.

Every time I see these "Jersey Chicks" on TV, I do what most sane and thinking people do. I turn the TV off or watch something on the Travel Channel.

Bravo to the author of this article. She hit the nail on the head, BIG TIME!

Because there is evil in the world. You're fighting the wrong fight, ladies.

I have been sick of them from the beginning. I refuse to watch them any longer. Sometimes it's a good thing to have a little respect for your loved ones and a little grace and appreciation in the fact that so many people tried to save them.
