As one of my favorite NY bloggers says... They want to turn ‘Never Forget’ into ‘Fogedaboutit”.
War was abolished after Vietnam
There can be no more war
Therefore, 9/11 was not war
This administration never understood the meaning of Western Civilization.
I wouldn’t mind minimizing references to Al Qaeda, so long as most of them were replaced with denunciations of Salafist Islam (the sect or tendency within Sunni Islam of which Al Qaeda is representative) and attacks on the ideas of Saayed Qutb, whose importation of the existentialist idea of “absolute commitment” into Islam is the foundation for suicide attack tactics as an “acceptable” form of jihad. (Before Qutb, Islamic martyrdom differed from Christian martyrdom in counting death in battle at the hands of non-believers — though we Orthodox regard St. Lazar and those who died with him on the Field of Kosovo as martyrs, so even that distinction isn’t quite as sharp as it might be — and, of course, in understanding of God for which one was dying, but suicide attacks weren’t martyrdom.)
What about Nanny Bloomberg and his censorship of prayer? Investments before speech?
“George Pataki: This Administration Has Never Understood the Meaning of 9/11”
Mr. Pataki, you are clueless.
This administration understands “the meaning” of 9/11 all too well.
The problem is that they are sympathetic and supportive of those who attacked us on that date. They are NOT “on the American side”.
As we remember the dead and devastation on the coming anniversary I hope FR visitors new and old remember Freepers “BCM” (Battalion Chief John Moran, FDNY) and “BKO” (Barbara K. Olson) killed in the attacks.
