  • “Obama, Obama, there are still a billion Osamas!” (Shouted in Cairo today- Andrew McCarthy)

    The Corner at NRO ^ | September 11, 2012 | Andrew McCarthy
    Nina is exactly right that the appalling statement issued by the Obama State Department, apparently prior to the storming of the U.S. embassy in Cairo today, betrays the president’s agenda to impose on Americans sharia speech suppression standards in blatant violation of the First Amendment. That, however, is far from the most egregious part of today’s episode in Egypt. To attack another country’s embassy is an act of war. Now, some will be quick to point out that our embassy was not attacked by the Egyptian regime. That is no defense. Everybody was on notice that there might be rioting...

    On this solemn day, most of the nation mourns the loss of life that occurred on this day eleven years ago and contemplates the changes that have occurred since then. Most, but not all. Kurt Eichenwald, contributing editor for Vanity Fair and writer for the New York Times, published an inflammatory op-ed accusing former President Bush of not preventing the attacks: “While those documents are still not public, I have read excerpts from many of them, along with other recently declassified records, and come to an inescapable conclusion: the administration’s reaction to what Mr. Bush was told in the weeks...

    BENGHAZI, Libya, Sept 12 (Reuters) - An American staff member of the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has died following fierce clashes at the compound, Libyan security sources said on Wednesday. "One American staff member has died and a number have been injured in the clashes," Abdel-Monem Al-Hurr, spokesman for Libya's Supreme Security Committee, said, adding that he did not know the exact number of injured and could not say what the cause of death was. Armed gunmen attacked the compound on Tuesday evening, clashing with Libyan security forces before the latter withdrew as they came...

    We had arrived in Venezuela from Bonaire a few days previously for a quick visit.During much of 2001, we lived on our sailboat in Bonaire, enjoying the scuba diving once or sometimes twice daily. Every ninety days, we generally left Bonaire because tourist visas were valid for only ninety days and were cumbersome to extend. Puerto Cabello, Venezuela is roughly one hundred miles to the South of Bonaire and getting there and back usually involved pleasant overnight sails. The winds tend to be consistently from the East at about fifteen to twenty knots, ideal for such trips in both directions....

    Eleven years ago today, terrorists killed over three thousand civilians in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Nineteen Muslims carried out the attacks. The religion of the terrorists is relevant because religion (Islam) motivated the terrorists to commit mass murder. Also of importance is the nationality of the terrorists. Fifteen of the nineteen hijackers were nationals of Saudi Arabia. The late leader of al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, was Saudi. These are not coincidences. The financial aid of the Saudi elite, determination of its citizens to participate in jihad, and promotion by the Saudi government of their puritanical version of Islam known...

    CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy on Tuesday, tore down the American flag and burned it during a protest over what they said was a film being produced in the United States that insulted Prophet Mohammad. In place of the U.S. flag, the protesters tried to raise a black flag with the words "There is no God but God, and Mohammad is his messenger", a Reuters witness said. Once the U.S. flag was hauled down, some protesters tore it up and showed off pieces to television cameras. Others burned the remains outside the fortress-like...

    There is little remaining controversy over the measures necessary to thwart terrorism. After the radical Islamist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and the foiled effort to ram a fourth jet into the Capitol in Washington, no one envisioned that there would follow eleven years without another major attack. Since September 11, 2001, over 45 terrorist plots have been uncovered and foiled in the United States; al-Qaeda, as a terrorist threat, seems regionalized and without the ability to inflict mayhem on a similarly large scale on the Western world; bin Laden is no more; and the Arab...

    Not only is Barack Obama violating his pledge not to campaign on 9/11, but he is also using the day to issue greetings to the Arab Forum on Asset Recovery, seemingly oblivious to the importance and solemnity of the day, as well as the context of his message. Obama offers thanks to the Emir of Qatar--showboating some rather halting Arabic skills in addressing "His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani"--and praising the inspiring democratic example of the Arab Spring, which happened to leave the absolute monarchy of Qatar untouched.

    What if the attacks of 9/11 had not happened? The point of departure, as it is termed in alternate history, is the death of Khalid Sheik Mohammed sometime in the late 1990s, before he developed the plan to hijack airliners and fly them into buildings. The history, thus far, of the 21st century would have been vastly different. Besides the World Trade Center still gracing the skyline of New York City, the invasion of Afghanistan would not have occurred. Iraq likely would not have been invaded either. Almost 10,000 Americans, dead on 9/11 and the subsequent War on Terror, would...

    Those who forget their past, will inevitably repeat the same mistakes over and over again. Democrats have short memories, because they continually forget what happens when they run the country, and thus they try to do the same thing every time they are in power. So if we do not ever want to see another day like December 7, 1941 or September 11, 2001, then we must remove Obama and his cohorts in the Senate from power, just as we removed their fellow Democrats from power in the House in 2010.

    These 11 years of delusion, which have culminated in the Obama administration’s empowering a jihadist regime in the strategically important and most populous Arab state in the Middle East, are the consequence of our continuing failure to understand accurately the motivating religious ideology of the jihadists. We have perpetuated the empirically dubious claim that Muslims like the Ayatollah Khomeini or Osama bin Laden, revered as heroes across the Muslim world, had “highjacked” the noble “religion of peace.” Once again Thomas Friedman provides the best example of this sort of thinking: “Muslims have got to understand that a death cult has...

    Conspiracy theories about 9/11 are in abundance. Some even believe that it was an “inside job”. We reject this notion completely. However, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the Bush administration made a conscious and very ill-advised decision not to go after the real perpetrators of the attacks – Saudi Government officials, Princes, and wealthy financiers. The accounts of the deaths of three Saudi Princes in particular don’t just border on absurd; they cross the line into absurdity. Foul play is the only logical conclusion. On the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Americans should come to grips with the...

Its gruel is thin when it comes to actually assembling a case of any real Bush-administration negligence.

Many on the Left have tried to turn 9/11 into a "day of national service" or a celebration of tolerance, instead of remembering that radical jihad attacked this nation because of our western values. Obama means to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11,...
