    "The View" co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar stormed off the set Thursday during a contentious interview with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly. As the cast debated whether there should be a community center and mosque built in Lower Manhattan, O'Reilly declared that "Muslims killed us on 9/11" to back up his position that it's "inappropriate." "Oh my God!" Goldberg responded, before uttering a few words bleeped out.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - American taxpayers will pay the imam behind plans for a mosque near the Manhattan site of the Sept. 11 attacks $3,000 in fees for a three-nation outreach trip to the Middle East that will cost roughly $16,000, the State Department said Wednesday. The department said Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf will get a daily $200 honorarium for the 15-day tour to Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, which is intended to promote religious tolerance. Airfare is included, as well as the standard federal government per diem for expenses and lodging in each of the cities he will...

    MASSIVE WTC COST OVERRUNS LOOK 'GRIM'FREDRIC U. DICKER State Editor June 28, 2008 Last updated: 5:00 am ALBANY - New Yorkers will be told the "grim truth" Monday about new delays and cost overruns at the World Trade Center redevelopment site by Port Authority executive director Christopher Ward, state officials and real-estate industry sources said yesterday. Ward, in what one source called "the coming grim truth," is expected to outline for Gov. Paterson and the PA more than 20 major problem areas facing the $16 billion redevelopment efforts, including massive cost overruns and unrealistic construction timetables. At least one project,...

    Star Newspapers - Chicago ^ | Sunday, May 7, 2006 | Michael Bowers, Star columnist
    Last weekend in Chicago Ridge I saw "United 93." It's outstanding. The violence is not gratuitous. "Let's roll" is more an offhand comment than a battle cheer. Considering the subject, the movie is extremely restrained. This makes it more powerful, not less. The events of the day speak for themselves. They don't need added theatrics. My strongest emotion was dread, knowing what was going to happen to these passengers before they ever had a clue. Once they found out, the dread dissipated and all that was left was to watch a desperate death match. I almost wanted it to hurry...

    A compilation of memories and photos of that day previously shown, worth re-reading and remembering It’s 4:46am September 6. Its a little more than 100 hours from the Second Anniversary of the start the World Trade Center Attack and the subsequent Strike on the Pentagon and the Crash in Pennsylvania. 100 hours seems to be a long time; however, it is barely enough to reflect and remember all those who perished on the ground and in the air. Each one of the victims has a story, a life, that if retold would take more than 100 hours to appreciate the...

    America awakened September 11 to appalling scenes on TV of passenger planes deliberately crashing into the towers of the World Trade Center and into the Pentagon. Stunned disbelief gave way to the question, who could so carefully plan and efficiently execute such incredibly inhumane destruction and slaughter? What cause could so powerfully motivate educated and trained individuals to sacrifice their own lives and the lives of so many total strangers in this manner? In the minds of civilized people these men were unbelievable fanatics. But were they? Could one call the spiritual leader of an entire major country a "fanatic," ...

    A TIME FOR TRUTH -- 9/11 AND ISLAM By Don Feder People keep asking me what we learned from September 11, 2001 and the deaths of 3,000 of our fellow citizens. I'm tempted to say: Absolutely nothing. (Who was it who remarked that the lessons of history are the last things we ever learn?) Among the many unlearned lessons of Day-Which-Will-Live-In-Infamy-II-- the necessity to control our borders, the need for a patriotic renewal and the importance of combatting multiculturalism -- the most significant is the nature of Islam. You will note that I do not say militant Islam, or radical...
