  • Why liberals are wrong about politicizing the memory of 9/11

    ATLANTIC CITY, May 15, 2014 — The opening of the 9/11 museum in New York City has created an everlasting memorial for all of the victims. The story of every one of the nearly 3,000 lives lost on September 11th, 2001, is being told. Children and grandchildren of the fallen will get to know about the final hours of the people they spent far too little time with on this earth. Unfortunately, as more time goes by, it becomes clear that many of the 9/11 victims died in vain. At the risk of offending the half of the country that...

    The Taliban, which harbored al Qaeda in Afghanistan in the lead up to the 9/11 attacks on America in 2001, will have an office in Afghanistan and engage in direct talks with the democratic government there, President Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai affirmed at a joint White House news conference Friday. “Ultimately security gains must be matched by political progress, so we’ve recommitted our nations to a reconciliation process between the Afghan government and the Taliban,” Obama said. “President Karzai updated me on the Afghan government’s road map to peace, and today we agreed that this process should...

    NEW YORK — The New York City medical examiner’s office has identified the remains of another victim of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. The office announced Thursday it had identified Anna A. Laverty, a 52-year-old legal secretary at Fiduciary Trust Co. who lived in Middletown. The identification came after remains recovered in the original efforts at the World Trade Center site were retested. More than 2,750 people are listed as having died at the World Trade Center in the attacks. The number of identifications is now 1,634.
  • Not a single 9/11 retrospective? (vanity)

    vanity | 9/10
    Here it is, the 11th anniversary of 9/11 tomorrow, and there's not a single documentary, retrospective or reminder about that day on TV this evening. I live in NYC so tomorrow we'll have the memorial service and it'll be broadcast locally. Will it be broadcast nationally? Why the silence? Because 10 years of mourning is enough, and now we're in year 11? Or does its absence from the airwaves have something to do with election?
  • Barack Obama's Cruel 9/11 Message [for 2008]

    Canada Free Press ^ | Tuesday, September 9, 2008 | John Lillpop
    Rather than working to unify Americans in remembrance of that awful September morning and of the wars that must still be waged and won in order to preserve American independence and freedom, Democrat Barack Obama has made statements which suggest that he sides with terrorists. As reported by Aaron Klein at wnd.com, "Obama's comments about legitimate causes" of terror groups and "root problems of causes and dangers" seems to echo little-noticed remarks the presidential candidate made eight days after 9/11 in which he said the attacks were carried out because of a lack of "empathy" for others' suffering on the...

    This is simple common sense, since the mosque developers have once again been shown to be operating under false pretenses. But common sense has, of course, been in short supply lately among New York politicians. "Lazio: Let's pull plug on mosque," by Chuck Bennett and Isabel Vincent in the New York Post, August 9: GOP gubernatorial hopeful Rick Lazio yesterday called on the Public Service Commission to zap the Ground Zero mosque because of the revelation that Con Ed owns half the site. "As governor I will appoint commissioners . . . who, like me, oppose this group's plan to...

I don't know if Rosie O'Donnell has formally joined the Deval Patrick campaign team, but given her political delusions, she could certainly be their poster child (assuming one could find a poster large enough to accommodate her). When you go to Deval Patrick's new, updated website--you know, the one that may be violating the state's privacy laws?--you'll find this webpage quoting the same moonbat memos Rosie is reading from: 9/11 was an inside...

"Anyone who helped in this has earned stiff punishment," presiding Judge Carsten Beckmann said after announcing Monday‘s verdict. Defense lawyers said they would appeal.

The family members demanded that construction stop at ground zero until remains of all their loved ones are recovered. They also called for state and federal investigations into the failure to completely remove remains from ground zero. ... Diane Horning said that part of her son's body was located more than...

    No quarter in dealing with terrorists By KARL WEINBERG COMMUNITY VOICE On the subject of how to treat terrorists once caught in our fight against Islamofascists, the mainstream media would have us believe that we are torturing the captives by using sleep deprivation, loud rock'n' roll music, female interrogators and such. Many Americans, including me, do not believe this is torture at all. Instead, we believe that much harsher treatment should be used to get information from these terrorists. While the U.S. Supreme Court, Sens. John McCain and Lindsay Graham have said these terrorists are covered under Common Article three...

    June 27, 2006 | According to Dylan Avery, a 22-year-old filmmaker in upstate New York, no terrorists hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, and no passengers heroically revolted. The plane didn't even crash in that Shanksville, Penn., field, he says, but instead landed safely in Cleveland. And not only that. As Avery sees it, the true 9/11 attackers brought down the World Trade Center in a controlled demolition, most likely to get at $160 billion in gold bars he believes were buried under the towers. As for the attack on the Pentagon, Avery insists...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The parents of Sept. 11, 2001, hero Todd Beamer, gave "United 93," the controversial movie about the doomed flight their blessing. Beamer's parents recently returned home to Jacksonville after watching a special screening of the movie. David Beamer, Todd Beamer's father, lives in Jacksonville. Todd Beamer was the passenger who yelled, "let's roll" as he and other passengers tried to take down the hijackers on United Flight 93. Some theaters around the country have refused to show the trailer for the film, saying it's just too soon, and too painful to watch. However, Beamer's father and other...

    BOMBAY (AFX) - An Indian court has jailed a man for plotting to crash passenger jets into the House of Commons and the Tower Bridge in London on Sept 11, 2001, Agence France-Presse reported. The court here handed down a seven-year prison term to Mohammed Afroze, who had also confessed to plotting with a group of Al-Qaeda operatives to attack Melbourne's Rialto Towers and the Indian parliament in 2001. Afroze told the police in Bombay after fleeing from Britain to India four years ago that he and seven Al-Qaeda terror cell operatives planned to hijack the passenger jets at Heathrow...

    A day late, but... Last night's news carried this item. Some residents in Amherst, MA (Amherst College, Univ. of Massachusetts) are "furious" that the US flag has remained up after Labor Day. They consider the US flag a symbol of racism, imperialism, and evil, and have demanded that it be taken down. The matter has reached the selectmen and town manager for action. In light of today's events, I think this item is particularly relevant, and says volumes about Amherst, MA, and the surrounding area.

    WASHINGTON - The final report of the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks will not conclude definitively that the terrorist strike could have been prevented, but it is clear that U.S. officials missed a series of opportunities to stop some of the hijackers, disrupt the plot and perhaps save lives. The most significant signal appears to have come in April 2000,when Niaz Khan, a Briton of Pakistani heritage, walked into the FBI’s office in Newark, N.J. Khan told agents that he had been trained by al-Qaida, the terrorist network that carried out the Sept. 11 attacks, and that there...

Pentagon sources say Bush communicated the order to Vice President Dick Cheney almost immediately after Flight 77 hit the Pentagon and the Federal Aviation Administration, for the first time ever, ordered all domestic flights grounded.'There are unanswered questions,' said Richard Ben-Veniste, a comission member and former federal prosecutor, as to whether the shoot down order had been rehearsed for, whether it had been prepared for, and what measures were in place to protect the Capitol,'...
