PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Most of the world praised the firefighters, rescue workers and police officers as the courageous ones on Sept. 11.

Brown U. would also be well advised to issue a disclaimer on Turner's idiotic remarks, but they probably don't realize how stupid they are.

We should completely de-fund the United Nations and throw them off our soil.

If terrorists are brave then we've got prisons full of 'brave' men and women. Let's create a holiday that celebrates the 'bravery' of these fine men and women, shall we Ted?

"Speaking at Brown University, the AOL Time Warner vice chairman said the 19 terrorists who hijacked civilian passenger planes and killed 3,000 people were motivated by world poverty and "were brave at the very least."

Major A-hole. The TRUELY Brave were the NYPD, and NYFD personnel who's bodies continue to be pulled from the Wreckage of the Twin Towers. The TRUELY Brave fought back, and brought down a Jet to prevent greater loss of life.

And how would Mr. Turner feel if his loved ones had been on one of the airplanes used as a missile? Oh, silly me, only the lives of people who own and/or fly on PRIVATE airplanes are valuable.

Since you (he) brought it up... flight93crash.com

How Did United Flight 93 Crash?

Maybe it's tin foil hat fodder. Maybe not.

Yeah...poverty is what motivated Money Bags Bin Laden. Did any of the supporters of the attack EVER say anything
about combatting world poverty? If they did, I missed it.
