    Mohammed Zammar, the al Qaeda operative responsible for recruiting the suicide-hijack pilots for the 9/11 attacks, has reportedly been freed inside Syria. Zammar's freedom was reported by Zaid Benjamin, the Washington correspondent for Radio Sawa, on his Twitter feed on Mar. 2. Writing for Al-Monitor, John Rosenthal cited multiple sources confirming Zammar's freedom in an account published on Mar. 10. Zammar was captured in Morocco in late 2001. Unlike most of the 9/11 co-conspirators who were captured, however, Zammar was not transferred to US custody. Instead, he was sent to Syria, where he was imprisoned by Bashar al Assad's regime....

    Donald Trump‘s tweetstorm against Ted Cruz today culminated in him posting a photo of the rubble after the 9/11 attack: Is this the New York that Ted Cruz is talking about & demeaning?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 16, 2016 And boy, did a lot of people have a problem with that: I didn't like @tedcruz's "New York values" trope. But this vulgar exploitation of 9/11 by @realDonaldTrump is worse.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) January 16, 2016 No, this is the New York of a heroism & sacrifice that @realDonaldTrump has never demonstrated or even appreciated.— Bill Kristol...
  • Fiorina had that job-killing touch

    That Carly Fiorina was a one-woman wrecking crew during her tenure as CEO of Hewlett-Packard was never in doubt. But what follows is a tale that is now being picked up and distributed as the Republican Party seeks a nominee who combines business savvy and executive know-how. Sadly, the former executive who most closely fits this particular bill also has exhibited the kind of corporate arrogance and blind certitude that came close to sinking what had been considered among the worlds best technology companies: Hewlett-Packard. At HP beginning in the mid-1990s, Fiorina was responsible for the ill-fated merger with Compaq,...

    AFTER several unsuccessful attempts, the US has finally succeeded in establishing direct contacts with the Afghan Taliban. Both sides are inching closer to the formal inauguration of peace talks in Qatar for settling the Afghan conflict. The Afghan government and Pakistan, who claim stakes in any development related to the conflict, appear to have been sidelined by the US and the Taliban in a process Washington calls exploratory. To shun this impression, President Hamid Karzai told the Wall Street Journal recently that there have been contacts between the US government and the Taliban, there have been contacts between the Afghan...

In particular were the services and rescue squads of the New York City firefighters, first responders, port authority and police, United States Armed Forces, Mayor Rudy Giulliani, President George Bush and countless numbers of citizens who pulled survivors and the dead from the rubble of the collapsed Twin Towers and the Pentagon.

    (NEW ROCHELLE, NY) -- The ongoing debate over the controversial Islamic community center and mosque planned for the site of what was to have been a Burlington Coat Factory retail outlet in lower Manhattan, has left Peter Parente frustrated. Parente, 42, a U.S. Marine honorably discharged in 1993, was part of the small team of construction workers assigned to clear plane wreckage from the building located at 4547 Park Place in the days after 9/11. Sitting at the kitchen table in his modest three-bedroom home in the Halcyon Park section of New Rochelle, Parente is uncomfortable talking about the proposed...

    enlarge Magnetic resonance imaging of the brains of healthy adults more than three years after Sept. 11, 2001, shows areas that have less gray matter volume in those who were near ground zero on 9/11, compared with those who were much farther away. This is three views of the brain areas that have lower gray matter volume in the 9/11-exposed group. Notably, all of these areas (which show up brighter in this image) are associated with the processing of emotion.

  • Accused Al Qaeda Accomplice Denies Role in 9/11 Attacks

    WASHINGTON, April 12, 2007 An accused terrorist accomplice held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, denied any involvement with al Qaeda, as well as possessing knowledge that money he had wired from overseas to the United States was used to finance the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, according to a transcript from his March 30 tribunal hearing. Ammar al Baluchi is the nephew of confessed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, who is also being detained at Guantanamo. Baluchi denied under questioning during the hour-and-a-half tribunal that his uncle had introduced him to al Qaeda operatives prior to the Sept. 11,...

    Andrea LeBlanc's thoughts after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, didn't exactly mirror those of the status quo, especially the flag-waving, chest-thumping Americans who were calling to "Kill them all!" From Sept. 12 on, her words have focused on forgiveness, on opposition to war and on understanding a people who were not inherently violent, as politicians and media implied, but rather were pushed to the brink by decades of skewed U.S. foreign policy. Most would have dismissed LeBlanc's ideas; that is, until they learned that her husband of 29 years, Robert LeBlanc, a cultural geography professor, was aboard United...

    he last of the big fires erupted at 3:30 a.m., a rushing orange-and-red wall that swiftly overwhelmed the ruined Marriott Hotel. Dozens of firefighters sat in office chairs in the open air at the corner of Liberty and West Streets. Their faces were brightened by flames. Some slept, slumped backward in fire- retardant coats. This was a command post, the night after the attacks on the World Trade Center. It was also a triage center, although there were no wounded to treat. Mixed in were doctors and nurses and an actor from "The Sopranos" who helped drag out the ...

    Iran gave free passage to up to 10 of the September 11 hijackers just months before the 2001 attacks and offered to co-operate with al-Qa'eda against the US, an American report will say this week. The all-party report by the 9/11 Commission, set up by Congress in 2002, will state that Iran, not Iraq, fostered relations with the al-Qa'eda network in the years leading up to the world's most devastating terrorist attack. The bipartisan commission has established that between eight and 10 of the September 11 hijackers, who had been based in Afghanistan, travelled through Iran between October 2000 and...

    Why did the Bush administration immediately suspect that Iraq was behind the 9/11 attacks when there was no evidence of any connection, as Richard Clarke and other Bush critics maintain? Maybe it was because there was indeed evidence, very dramatic evidence, in fact - in the form of warnings in the state-run Iraqi press that such an attack was coming, along with praise for Osama bin Laden and his kamikaze hijackers in the days after the World Trade Center was destroyed. Less than two months before 9/11, the state-controlled Iraqi newspaper "Al-Nasiriya" carried a column headlined, "America, An Obsession Called...
