  • Prominent 9/11 Family Leader Passes Away

    05/22/2017 10:13:03 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | May 22, 2017 | Josh Goldstein
    On May 20, 9/11 Family leader Bill Doyle passed away. In the 16 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, there was no more influential advocate among the many family members of the victims. Bill leaves an enduring legacy, having done more in the 16 years after September 11 than most did in their whole lifetimes. Bill and his late wife Camille were the Staten Island parents of Joey Doyle who was killed in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Joey was only 25 years old. Almost immediately after the attacks, Bill started working with other 9/11 family members...

    Personal letters seized in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden reveal the al Qaeda leader's son to be a young man who adores his father and wants to carry on his murderous ideology. That son today is poised to lead a stronger, larger al Qaeda and is bent on avenging his dad's death, says an ex-FBI agent familiar with those documents. Holly Williams interviews Ali Soufan, the former FBI agent who was the bureau's lead investigator of al Qaeda after the 9/11 attacks, on the next edition of 60 Minutes Sunday, May 14 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

    It will be very easy for you to say, "Well, I will do something, some day. When I can afford it, I am going to." But would you let an old "grad" tell you one thing now? Giving is a habit. Get into the habit now, because you will never be able to afford to give and contribute, thus to repay the obligation you owe to those people who made this college possible, if you wait until you think you can afford it. Start now regardless of how small, and in the days to come when you are confronted with ...

Although not normally bothered by what people generally can&acute;t see, this time she took the few minutes required to clean them. Her reasoning: She wanted no one to think, after her death, that she was unconcerned about personal hygiene. Before leaving her house each morning, Yaffa Hazut makes sure that it is in perfect order. Everything is dusted, all the washing folded and the dishes put away. Her reason: ...

    CLEVELAND - A Cleveland police dispatcher has received a 6 days suspension for sleeping on duty, and the FOX 8 I-TEAM has obtained police radio tapes showing her snoring after taking a call. The discipline has been issued to Jasmin Thomas. In March, the I-TEAM revealed the internal investigation. Now that the punishment has been handed out, we’re learning more, and the city has released dispatch tapes after a public records request.

    Parishioners at a New York City chapel that sheltered 9/11 first responders are praying for a miracle to save it from falling victim itself to the prosperity of its resurgent neighborhood. St. Joseph’s Chapel is living on archdiocese subsidies after the rent for the relatively small space tripled in 2014 to $264,000 a year. “If it should disappear and become a Gap or something — nothing against Gap, but it’s really not OK,” said Justine Cuccia, 55, a leader of the effort to save the tiny Roman Catholic chapel, part of the oldest Catholic parish in the state. St. Joseph’s...

    A rogue nation targeted a multinational corporation and won.  North Korea has almost certainly ordered the massive cyber-attack on Sony Pictures, stealing and publicly dumping enough data to make a dent in the company’s stock price. North Korea cannot challenge the United States militarily, despite what movies have portrayed.  Regardless of their saber-rattling, and America’s reduced presence on the Korean peninsula, a real attack of any substance against our ally South Korea (or Japan for that matter) would bring a suicidal level of retribution on the North, and they know it.  But they’ve found a vein where they can draw...

    A military judge on Friday dismissed two relatively minor charges against the five prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay detention center who have been accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Army Col. James Pohl accepted a defense argument that the five-year statute of limitations had run out on two non-capital charges: attacking civilian objects and destruction of property.

    A convicted jihadist serving a life sentence in federal prison as the “20th hijacker” in the September 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S. homeland has reportedly offered to testify during the 9/11 trial to “expose the Saudi Royal double game with” the late al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. His offer comes as hundreds of families have filed a lawsuit that, unlike others, contains a detailed account of Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attacks. “I am willing to fully testify on the 9/11 case, even if I was charge on the death penalty case as it incriminate me,” Zacarias Moussaoui,...

In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe what happened,” stated the assignment, a copy of which was obtained by The College Fix.

    Tom Friedman’s frothing hyperventilation on CNN this morning epitomizes the Dem/MSM hysteria over the Sessions/Russians flap. Friedman claimed: “A lot of evidence” that Jeff Sessions “perjured himself.” The failure of more Republicans to be up in arms about the matter “one of the most shameful things I have seen in almost 30 years being in Washington, DC.” In a nifty bit of saying something by claiming not to say it, in describing the seriousness of the matter, Friedman mentions 9/11 and Pearl Harbor while claiming not to compare them, at least in terms of “lives lost.” View the video here.

    Three veterans who were flown to Washington as part of a Saudi-sponsored campaign to lobby for changes to the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) say organizers of the event concealed the Saudi role in the initiative. Enacted in September 2016 over President Obama’s veto, JASTA altered the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act in a way that cleared the path for 9/11 families and survivors to sue the kingdom for its alleged support of the hijackers... ...“The guy didn’t tell us what we were doing or what side we should take,” says Tim Cord “He just said, ‘Hey you’re going...

    The man who says he was the mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack seeks to justify the plot as a “natural reaction” to US foreign policy in a blistering letter sent to then President Barack Obama from the Guantanamo prison. Khalid Shaikh Mohammad, one of five Guantanamo prisoners facing trial by military commission for their alleged roles in the hijacking plot, also writes in the letter released Wednesday that it does not matter to him if he receives a life sentence or the death penalty from the tribunal. “If your court sentences me to life in prison, I will...
