What's even more sobering to me, of the approximately 3,000 people that perished that day, probably 12-15% of them (firefighters, policemen, etc.) - like BCM - went willingly into the WTC and gave their lives to save others. It's incredibly tragic, yet beautiful at the same time.

I hope that last sentence gets my point across without offending anyone. Certainly no offense was intended.

Finally! the mainstream speaks of 9/11 as not just a date to count the number of "hate" crimes committed since that date.

No mention of terrorist Muslims or Islam. Gee, I guess the towers just collapsed.

The transcripts confirms what the free press has said all along, the policemen and firemen knew what they were getting into and everyone of them are heroes beyond my ability to understand.

Where the free press of the Internet and talk radio differs from the mainstream legacy press is we don't believe these men and the men and women in the towers and the Pentagon died because of something we Americans did.

To wit, within hours of the attack the best and brightest of the Sacramento Bee brains were blaming us for not "understanding" the peoples of the world. A few weeks later the publisher of the Bee was actually booed off the stage in public for making the same point and for blasting Bush and Ashcroft for being mean to terrorists suspects.

No offense taken. "Greater Love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for a friend."
