    In a Senate floor speech today, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham announced that they are offering an amendment to strip a key element of the recently passed Justice Against Sponsors of Terror Act (JASTA) that clarifies U.S. law for civil claims against foreign governments for funding terrorism. JASTA was passed in the Senate in May with no objections, and passed the House of Representatives unanimously in September. President Obama promptly vetoed the bill. The Senate and House successfully voted to override the veto and the bill became law. McCain and Graham specifically said they want to strip the "discretionary...

    The Saudis have Obama in their corner. And Obama has the Saudis in their corner. And this dirty alliance of terror and hate has teamed up against 9/11 families. The Saudis are now spending more than $250,000 a month fighting the bill, retaining powerhouses Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, Glover Park Group, Sphere Consulting and Squire Patton Boggs. Besides working with companies invested in Saudi Arabia, the lobbyists are directly contacting lawmakers, placing opinion articles and seeking support from think tank scholars. GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bob Corker of Tennessee are trying to hammer out a compromise...

    The city is still holding on to more than 3,500 personal items found in the World Trade Center wreckage, stirring anger and anguish in relatives who have tried for 15 years to claim anything their slain loved ones left behind. The families of those killed are begging the NYPD to let next-of-kin see the remaining jewelry and other sentimental objects sitting in storage, saying the city has needlessly shrouded them in secrecy for too long.

    The Hill ^ | Jordain Carney
    The Senate on Tuesday approved legislation that would allow victims of the 9/11 terror attacks to sue Saudi Arabia, defying vocal opposition from the White House. The upper chamber approved the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act by unanimous consent. "This bill is very near and dear to my heart as a New Yorker because it would allow the victims of 9/11 to pursue some small measure of justice," Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said. "[This is] another example of the [John] Cornyn-Schumer collaboration, which works pretty well around here." President Obama has threatened to veto the bill. Schumer said he...

    The 120-nation Nonaligned Movement headed by Iran accused the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday of violating international law by ruling that nearly $2 billion in frozen Iranian assets can be paid to victims of attacks linked to the country. A communiqué issued by the NAM’s Coordinating Bureau follows an Iranian appeal to the United Nations last week to intervene with the U.S. government to prevent the loss of their funds. Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called the ruling an “outrageous robbery, disguised under a court order.” The NAM, comprising mainly developing countries, called the U.S. waiver of “the sovereign...

    The principal of Concord Carlisle High School is apologizing to parents about the school’s opening ceremony on Wednesday - the 12th anniversary of 9/11 - in which a Muslim poem was recited over the intercom but the Pledge of Allegiance was not. Principal Peter Badalament said in a statement to parents that the poem was meant to promote "cross-cultural understanding," and that the Pledge of Allegiance was not read because of a mixup with the student reader. The combination of the two has "outraged a small number of members of our community," Badalament said in an email to the Globe,...

    Oh my heavens--Debra Burlingame who lost her brother on 9-11 and met with Obama today at Ground Zero is on Hannity's show and she says he was being trailed by a videographer with a still and video camera while meeting and hugging the 9-11 victims families today. No press cameras were allowed, but Obama had his own cameras there. This whole thing was nothing but the filming of a campaign commercial for Obama. That's why he did this, to tape a campaign spot.

    Thousands of chanting, jeering protesters with dueling agendas converged on lower Manhattan yesterday in a bitter and sometimes violent clash over the planned Ground Zero mosque. Rival demonstrations over the Islamic center were kept apart by a phalanx of cops -- though there were flare-ups between the groups even as relatives of 9/11 victims mourned just a few blocks away. "I don't care if they build a mosque, but I don't want to hear their Islamic prayers wafting over the [Ground Zero] grave site . . . I saw the carnage of 9/11," fumed a retired firefighter who waved his...

    When was the last time you heard a politician talking like Carl Paladino? Carl Paladino, a Republican candidate for Governor of New York, has come out against the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero. "As Governor," Paladino said Wednesday in a radio ad, "I will use the power of eminent domain to stop this mosque and make the site a war memorial instead of a monument to those who attacked our country." I like this guy. I really like this guy. If the Supreme Court could rule, in the notorious 2005 decision Kelo v. City of New London, that the...

    A spate of recent deaths of New York police and fire officers who took part in the emergency operation at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks has heightened fears that it could be the start of a delayed epidemic of cancer-related illness. Five firefighters and police officers, all of whom were involved in the rescue and clear-up at the site of the collapsed Twin Towers, have died of cancer in the past three months, the oldest being 44. Three died last month within a four-day period. Those three were Robert Grossman, a Harlem-based police officer who spent several weeks at...

    A Harvard law grad surrendered to cops yesterday after allegedly setting fire to an East Side chapel that houses remains of 9/11 victims as part of a drunken dare, sources said. Brian Schroeder, 26, originally from Texas, walked into the 13th Precinct station house at about 7 p.m. in connection with the blaze at Memorial Park, on East 30th Street. Charges were pending, police said. None of the remains, which are destined for a memorial at the World Trade Center, were damaged but "mementos and candles left by family members in honor of 9/11 victims were destroyed or possibly stolen,"...

    Leon Bernard Heyward did not die until last October, at the age of 45. But his name was added Friday to the official list of people who died as a result of the attack on Sept. 11, 2001. That brings the death toll to 2,752. The accounting is kept by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, which said that Mr. Heyward was counted as a casualty “due to exposure to World Trade Center dust following collapse of the World Trade Center.” The issue of how to treat and compensate those who were exposed to the dust — particularly rescue...

If so, what explains the more than 3,000 "victims" of 9/11 who are trying to snag a piece of the taxpayers' $1 billion insurance fund despite having no more than nominal injuries? About 10,800 people have signed onto a lawsuit claiming they were hurt when the Twin Towers in New York City fell. Half of the claimants are city workers, including police and firefighters. But the law firm hired by the city to separate the valid claims from the fraudulent ones has told U.S....

    Federal officials on Thursday opened a path to temporary legal status for illegal immigrants whose spouses or parents died on 9/11, a step the families’ supporters called a breakthrough in the effort to allow them to remain permanently in the United States. Lawyers for the immigrants said a concession by Homeland Security officials would help to bring the family members out of the shadows. They also said the measure should help clear a political logjam that has stalled bills in Congress that would grant the immigrants permanent legal status. “For the first time there is a program for these widows...

    Larry A. Silverstein, who has won nearly $4.6 billion in insurance payments to cover his losses and help him rebuild at the World Trade Center site, is seeking $12.3 billion in damages from airlines and airport security companies for the 9/11 attack. Mr. Silverstein, the developer of ground zero, sought the damages, whose amount was not previously known, in a claim filed in 2004, that says the airlines and airport security companies failed to prevent terrorists from hijacking the planes used to destroy the buildings. His case was consolidated last week with similar, earlier lawsuits brought by families of some...

It is believed Burlingame helped divert the plane from its original destination -- the White House -- by literally fighting off the terrorists in the cockpit. In an FBI report released after the crash, it was revealed that the pilot died of injuries sustained before the plane hit the ground. Burlingame's family has requested that he be buried in Arlington Cemetery in Virginia, an honor bestowed only on soldiers and their families. ...

Betty Ong, 45, who grew up in Chinatown and North Beach, was a flight attendant on American Airlines Flight 11, the first plane hijacked by the terrorists. Just minutes before the plane smashed into the World Trade Center, she quietly contacted authorities and gave a detailed description of the hijackers.

    Much of what is known about the health problems of ground zero workers comes from a small clinic in Manhattan that at the time of the trade center collapse had only six full-time doctors and a tiny budget. Yet in the weeks after 9/11, its doctors stepped into the fray in the absence of any meaningful effort by the city, state or federal government to survey, interview or offer treatment to potentially sickened recovery and cleanup workers. Since then, the clinic, the Irving J. Selikoff Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine, based at Mount Sinai Medical Center, has examined more...

At the time, Burnett didn’t know what the message was, but he told his wife, “I know it will impact a great number of people, and it has something to do with the White House.” On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Burnett’s words proved prophetic as the hijacked airplane he was on, presumably targeting the White House, crashed in a rural Pennsylvania field. Voice recordings recovered...

    netWMD is proud to participate in the 2,996: A Tribute to the Victims of 9/11 project. Stuck to the top until Sept. 12. Sareve Dukat kept her composure, even though the United States was under attack by Islamo-fascists, drunk on religion, hatred, and a lust for power. The date was September 11, 2001. An airliner full of civilians was just cynically rammed into tower #1 of the World Trade Center in New York City. Ms. Dukat would not survive the day that has become the defining moment for a generation of Americans, myself included. Dukat, who was working on the...

    Rescue 1, which was the first rescue company established in the entire United States, fights fires underground, pries people from high-rise elevators and pulls them from burning buildings. Their response area extends more than 100 Manhattan blocks. The men of FDNY’s elite Rescue 1 unit are specialists, called in to fight the unusual fires, free trapped firefighters, and save lives. One minute, they’re inside a high-rent high rise that’s spewing scalding steam onto Wall Street. The next, they’re racing uptown to a help a homeless man living under a bridge who has been hit by a train. They were heroes...

    A few months ago, I signed up at to pay tribute to one of the innocent people killed 9/11. The goal was to bring together 2,996 bloggers, assign them an individual killed on that fateful day, and then write a tribute to their lives. The name I was given was Ted Hennessy. "We will honor them by remembering their lives, and not by remembering their murderers. I hope I do him justice. Image from

    Tonight on ABC's "Primetime," Diane Sawyer reunites a group of children born to women widowed on Sept. 11. It's the first time the entire group (children and moms), has been together since Sawyer first featured them in June 2002 - and it's easy to see how the kids, who were all born after Sept. 11, have grown since then. In tonight's special, Sawyer chats with the Sept. 11 widows, and their kids, about how their lives have changed in the intervening five years. She also asks the moms how they've explained Sept. 11 to their children, who are now old...

    Yesterday I was listening to Limbaugh's radio show and he mentioned that illegal aliens were killed in the 9/11 World Trade Center towers. He said that their families were compensated $3-5 million. That's $3-5 million per family. He also said that they could not qualify for leagal status but were compensated anyway. Can anyone confirm this ? Are there articles written to confirm this?

    The Blood of 9/11 Demands It by Mychal Massie In the not so distant past, Americans were as committed to their security as they were a work ethic. Today there exists an element in America that is committed to abortion, homosexuality, removing God from the public square and the deprivation of what it takes to secure the aforementioned. Just five years removed from the worst act of barbarism perpetrated upon Americans in our history, we have 535 elected so-called representatives that are committed to preserving their seats in Congress and their pensions. In days past we had leaders like George...

    New DNA technology is reportedly to be used in a bid to identify remains of New York's September 11 victims which are still unclaimed, giving hope to more than 1,000 families who never had any part of their loved ones' bodies to bury. The city's Medical Examiner's Office is set to pay $1.5m (€900,000) to a firm that will use a powerful, computer-based system to match damaged or partial DNA samples with those provided by relatives, according to the New York Post. Identifiable remains of some 42% of those killed when the World Trade Centre was attacked - 1,151 out...
