  • Josh Morgan's Mother Safe After Navy Yard Shooting (Was in Pentagon on 9/11; He VA Tech Shooting)

    NFL ^ | 9/16
    The country mourned Monday after learning about the mass shooting deaths at the Washington Navy Yard. For a few scary moments, Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan feared for his mother's safety. Morgan told reporters that his mom works on the same floor of the Navy Yard building where the shooting occurred, according to The Washington Post. Morgan, who grew up in the area, said he was unable to reach his mother after he learned of the shooting. Eventually Morgan confirmed through a Redskins spokesperson that his mother was safe. Before that happened, Morgan told reporters that he had a...

    *Caution!  Graphic picture belowSo I woke up the morning of 9/12/2012, to the sad news that one of our ambassadors to the Middle East, Christopher Stevens and his staff had been killed, and our embassy in Cairo had been breached. My first thought was, "What is the administration going to do about this?" My second thought was, "This should be an act of war (in Libya)!" I was sadly disappointed with their tepid response. Secretary of State Clinton had somewhat of an emotional response, but the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, had the most weak-kneed, please...

    National Security: The Sept. 11 commission stated that our biggest failure was one of imagination. Imagine an Iranian nuclear device detonating high over the American heartland. They're working on it. On the same day the 9/11 Commission issued its report, another commission issued a report on a threat that could change our world and way of life in ways we can scarcely imagine. It is a real and credible threat, and it is largely being ignored. The threat is a phenomenon known as electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, and demonstrates why the issue of homeland security extends beyond the need for...

    Late in the morning of the Tuesday that changed everything, Lt. Heather “Lucky” Penney was on a runway at Andrews Air Force Base and ready to fly. She had her hand on the throttle of an F-16 and she had her orders: Bring down United Airlines Flight 93. The day’s fourth hijacked airliner seemed to be hurtling toward Washington. Penney, one of the first two combat pilots in the air that morning, was told to stop it. The one thing she didn’t have as she roared into the crystalline sky was live ammunition. Or missiles. Or anything at all to...

    It is that time, the day we knew was coming, the date we did not need to mark on our calendars. What happened on that terrible Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, was a tragedy that profoundly affected us all. We stood motionless as we witnessed the unthinkable become reality. We gasped as we saw twin towers crumble, and we cried as we watched grown men weep. And then we gathered together, as communities and as a nation, to seek a collective consolation from those around us - our families, our friends, our colleagues. Theodore Roosevelt wrote that “Death is always, and...

    The bone-chilling wail of bagpipe playing "Amazing Grace" echoed through a Queens church yesterday as yet another fallen firefighter from the World Trade Center tragedy was memorialized in death. It was yet another day — of many more to come — for Masses and memorial services for both heroic rescue workers and innocent civilians lost in the flames and collapsing towers. At the memorial Mass for 49th Battalion Chief John Moran, his younger brother, Firefighter Michael Moran of Ladder 3, recalled how he spoke to his brother by cell phone after the second plane crashed into the Trade Center.

    US President Barack Obama on Tuesday played down prospects for a spectacular Al-Qaeda attack 10 years after the September 11th strikes, saying he worried more now about solitary extremists. "The most likely scenario that we have to guard against right now ends up being more of a lone wolf operation than a large, well coordinated terrorist attack," he told CNN television during a campaign-style swing through Iowa. "We still have to stay on top of it, though. We're never letting our guard now, that's part of our job," said Obama, who vowed "heightened" security measures and "extra vigilance" ahead of...

    U.S. President George W. Bush listens as White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card informs him of a second plane hitting the World Trade Center, while Bush was conducting a reading seminar at the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida. There has rarely been starker juxtaposition of evil and innocence than the moment President George W. Bush received the news about 9/11 while reading The Pet Goat with second-graders in Sarasota, Florida. Seven-year-olds can't understand what Islamic terrorism is all about. But they know when an adult's face is telling them something is very wrong — and none...

    The last few days left many of us at a loss of words as we recalled the horrors of September 11th, 2001. But while people share stories of tragic loss and hope, pictures and afterthoughts, we still have the 9/11 “truthers” who like to tell us our fellow Americans died at the hands of our own government. Last night’s Red Eye discussed Charlie Sheen, the latest celebrity truther idiot to shoot off his mouth. He recently released a YouTube video demanding both a meeting with the president and a reinvestigation of 9/11: Sheen’s main message: “We want our country back,...

    History-like hindsight-is supposed to be 20:20, but the deliberate partisan, political divide regarding the invasion of Iraq makes that hard. It's not a new phenomenon. Long ago it was said that the true story of a war can't be told until the last of its veterans has passed away, and only a few months ago did the last World War One veteran go to his great reward. For decades after the Civil War (and some would argue even today) the debate raged on, and the healing of Southern Reconstruction didn't really start culturally until the unity of the Spanish-American War...

Some six years later, with over 60 million dead, a Holocaust conceived as the Final Solution for European Jewry, killing fields that left most of Europe scarred and, finally, the unleashing of atomic weapons over Japan, the carnage ended. Mighty volumes of the war's history have been written. Memoirs, official records and grisly details of unimaginable sufferings of victims have been published.
