  • New Orleans: The Party's Over (Joseph Farah: Don't Keep Tossing Good Money Down NO Rathole Alert))

    At least part of the city has been destroyed. And it should never be rebuilt, again. You know who is calling for it to be rebuilt at any cost? The same idiots who didn't lift a finger to evacuate the city – people like Mayor Ray Nagin, whose legacy will always be that photograph of an armada of school buses submerged in the big muddy. Joining him are Sen. Barack Obama, former Sen. John Edwards and Sen. Hillary Clinton – all of whom don't see any reason to limit the spending on rebuilding the underwater city. Good thing these folks...

    (AP) SIMI VALLEY, Calif. Two years after Ronald Reagan's death, former first lady Nancy Reagan visited the hilltop gravesite of the nation's 40th president and gently tapped his tombstone. Mrs. Reagan and daughter Patti Davis made a private, five-minute visit to the gravesite Monday at the Reagan Presidential Library. Mrs. Reagan placed a bouquet of white roses at the granite memorial, paused and then gently placed her hand on the headstone. "It was a poignant moment. You could feel the loss and feel the love," said library Director Duke Blackwood, who escorted the former first lady. Library visitors were kept...

    Dirty bomb test 'caught US police napping' US police officers failed to spot what could have been a dirty bomb planted in the heart of Washington, a report by government investigators has alleged. A suspicious package was positioned at the base of the Washington Monument, near the White House, on the second anniversary of September 11. The test was conducted at a time when the US was supposed to be on high alert against the threat of a terrorist attack. But the report alleges that police were busy chatting rather than patrolling the area and one officer positioned in an...

I found myself last month transfixed in front of my televsion, staring again at the images that we all remember but rarely see any more.

    TWO years after the Sept 11 terrorist attacks, American pundits and policymakers are still grappling with the question: Why do they hate us? But what was an area of almost total darkness has since been illuminated by a torrent of in-depth studies, opinion polls and, of late, bad news from Iraq. Perhaps Americans should beseech God, as the old school prayer advises, to grant them the serenity to accept the things they cannot change. True, this would be too fatalistic an attitude for most United States foreign-policy analysts. But do their own diagnoses and panaceas stand up to scrutiny? In...

    Military vessels routinely render honors to military ships of other countries when they pass at sea by dipping their flag, as a sign of respect. The German frigate FGS Niedersachsen went above and beyond this normal gesture of respect when it asked to come alongside the USS Doyle on September 11, 2003, the second anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the US. On this day, as the two ships approached and passed, the entire crew of the German vessel stood top-side in full dress uniforms, holding their hats over their hearts. And as the ultimate gesture of respect, the FGS...

    Last week, on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Lawrence F. Kaplan published an extraordinary article in the Wall Street Journal. Titled, “Are you a September 10th American?”, Kaplan detailed polls which indicate that America is essentially split into two, mostly partisan, groups - those who consider their lives and the world changed by the events of September 11th and those who consider the attacks as “an event whose significance is emotional…and historical” not “the opening salvo of a years-long struggle”. According to Kaplan, September Eleventhers are comprised of “evangelical Christians, whites, rural dwellers, southerners and self-described conservatives”. September...

    When foreign policy becomes a local concern It has been two years since the Sept. 11 tragedy struck in New York and here in Arlington, killing scores of citizens and terrifying the rest. Having experienced this tragedy first-hand, Arlingtonians have a special stake in doing what's necessary to be sure that this kind of tragedy never revisits here - or anywhere else. We have an especially strong interest in focusing attention on what truly makes us more secure today. Most of us supported the Bush administration's initial focus after the tragedy. The administration presented compelling evidence of al- Qaida's guilt...

    The second anniversary of 9/11 slipped by with the anticipated moments of grief and solemnity. But what is most pronounced and alarming is how our mourning and resolve have degenerated into hysteria, particularly in the media and exemplified by the nine Democrats running for president. In the weeks after the terrorist attacks, the nation found its resolve and resoluteness. Partisanship dissolved, though we knew that would be temporary. What's so shocking is the rabidness of the new partisanship. This anniversary passed with the nation distressed by the media's out-of-perspective fixation on body counts and bogus Vietnam analogies. The Democrats have...

Being a country boy, I've never been fond of any big city, but on that day and in the days following, I would have been proud to be called a New Yorker. The way the people of that city opened their hearts, their arms and their pocketbooks to each other should stand forever as a rebuke to cynics.

    Two years after the September 11 U.S. attacks, immigrants here complain that since then they have been living in a state of fear, subjected to hate crimes and their concerns largely ignored. At a meeting in the Elmhurst-Jackson Heights Senior Centre in Queens, 17 people from the Hispanic, Chinese, Muslim and South Asian communities voiced their concerns. These ranged from increasing crime in Queens to hate crimes against Muslims to instances of racial attacks on Sikhs in cases of mistaken identity.

    The day before the second anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, a federal judge in New York ruled against dismissing a lawsuit brought against Boeing and the Port Authority by victims of the attack. His actions remind us how far we've gone in becoming a nation ruled by lawyers and judges, and not by the people and their elected representatives. Federal judge Alvin Hellerstein began his opinion by saying that "the injured, and the representatives of the thousands who died from the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of September 11, 2001, are entitled to seek compensation."

    THE 9/11 attack is a wound that healed too quickly. The skin has knit over the gash; only a scar remains visible. Yet, underneath, infection still roils and an abscess oozes. Terror has not gone away, but fear of it has subsided. Terrorists are still at large, but the determination to catch them has ebbed. Osama and Saddam still excite our attention, but we read of the almost weekly arrests in America of potential terrorists with the same calcified apathy with which we react to drug busts. Reports that North Korea, the most insane of criminal regimes since Hitler's, has...

Instead, Stephen Harper, the opposition leader, organized a ceremony. Though he made a quickie phone call to Pres. Bush, Jean Chretien didn't bother to show up. Two days later, a woman writing a puff piece in the Ottawa Citizen made the comment that "seeing Canadians flying American flags in a misplaced show of solidarity" sends her into a "huff."

    Al-Muhajiroun, the extremist Muslim group that used the second anniversary of the September 11 atrocities last week to praise the "Magnificent 19" hijackers, is facing eviction from its London offices. The landlord of the business centre in Tottenham, north London, where al-Muhajiroun has rented premises since December 2001, said yesterday it had begun legal action to evict the organisation. The Workplace Group, which owns business property across London, acted after al-Muhajiroun praised the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington as "a good deed". The company said the offices had been rented by Anjem Choudary, a chief spokesman for al-Muhajiroun,...

    Cheney: Sept. 11 Changed Everything By K.L. VantranAmerican Forces Press Service WASHINGTON, Sept. 14, 2003 -- Emphasizing that any loss of life or injury is "regrettable," Vice President Richard B. Cheney said here today that the cost of doing nothing or being unsuccessful in the global war on terror would be far higher than getting the job done right. Sept. 11 changed everything, continued Cheney during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." "It changed the way we think of threats to the United States. It changed our recognition of our vulnerabilities. It changed in terms of the security...

    "How are you all doing? The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do something to pay tribute to our fallen comrades. So since we are part of the only Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could think of doing that is by taking a picture of Baker Company saying the way we feel. It would be awesome if you could find a way to share this with our fellow countrymen. I was wondering if there was any way to get this into your papers to let the world know that "WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN"...

    Two years ago, in the days before Sept. 11 2001, we were living in a different state of mind. A state of mind which placed us in a false sense of security. This state of false security was amplified by, among other things, our great oceans, military strength, and sheer size. It was also due to the inaction by the US government, specifically in the years of the Clinton Administration, who, even though saw the increase in Islamic terrorism, chose to sit tight and hope for the best, while continuing its trend of appeasement and inaction when faced by terrorist...

    SLAMABAD, Pakistan -- The scene was clearly intended to vex Americans. On the eve of the second anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, Osama bin Laden flickered across the world's television screens casually strolling down a boulder-strewn hillside. He looked calm, peaceful and, worst of all, safe.While it is unclear when the tape was made, the place where Mr. bin Laden is probably hiding today is somewhere along the rugged 1,500-mile Pakistan-Afghanistan border, American and Pakistani officials say. Autonomous tribal areas on the Pakistani side, are generally thought to be safer for him.A midlevel Pakistani intelligence official involved in the...

    Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush says the war against terrorism launched by his son, President George W. Bush, must go continue. In a BBC interview Sunday, the former president said the United States and its allies are in for "the long haul." Two years after the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and Washington, the ex-president said his country is in better shape to avoid and withstand terrorism. But, he admitted the war on terror will never be ended, and said this is now being seen inside Iraq. The continuing impact of Sept. 11, 2001, on every U.S. citizen...

    After the remembrances of the World Trade Center disaster last week, it is proper to ask whether you're safer than you were two years ago. Any sensible response would say that, despite the much publicized war on terrorism, you're not much safer and maybe a little less safe. A major improvement is that there is now a bulletproof metal door protecting each cockpit on American planes. That protection was first suggested by the Gore Commission in 1996. The airline industry, fearful of the extra expense, persuaded Congress to reject the recommendation. If the four planes taken over by the terrorists...

    In the midst of the deluge of lamentations, recriminations and explanations that attended upon the second anniversary of the 9-11 assault last week, there appeared — in Edmonton of all places — a theory I hadn't heard before. This whole current conflict, we were told, is the fault of the Jews. Of the Christians, too, of course, but it was the Jews who talked them into it. I've heard the Jews blamed for many things, but the accusations always appeared somewhat subversively — in tracts handed out by shady people in raincoats outside political meetings, or with the junk mail,...
