  • A year later, hope dissolves into disappointment

    A year ago, on an Inauguration Day like no other, Barack Obama placed his hand upon the Lincoln Bible and then assured a weary nation that, with hope and virtue, we could "brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come." Across the country, in Seattle, Glen Boyd had only just entered his own economic storm. A couple of weeks out of work as a DIRECTV salesman, the Obama supporter nevertheless watched the inauguration on TV with a kind of goose-pimply, things-are-bound-to-get-better anticipation. He really felt it, that thing which the poet Alexander Pope said springs eternal....

    Mark Danner: Blaming America for the Global JihadBy Robert | October 10, 2005 The New York Times marked the fourth anniversary of 9/11 by publishing in the New York Times Magazine a long and lavish cover story by the  Mark Danner, a journalism professor at the University of California at Berkeley, author of  Torture and Truth: America, Abu Ghraib and the War on Terror, and a longtime opponent of America wars against totalitarian enemies. Danner didn’t write anything for the anniversary that would cancel dinner invitations for him in Berkeley. Instead, he repeated the radical line he has adopted for...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 7, 2005 – Four years ago today, America launched its counterattack against terrorism, hammering terrorist targets in Afghanistan and ushering in Operation Enduring Freedom and the global war on terror. That volley, launched Oct. 7, 2001, targeted far more than al Qaeda training camps and facilities and the repressive Taliban regime in Afghanistan, President Bush noted in announcing the attacks during a White House address. It sent an unmistakable message to terrorist organizations worldwide that the United States and its coalition partners refuse to live under a cloud of fear and intimidation, he said. Bush emphasized that the...

    Four years ago, when the first Qantas jet flew into New York after the September 11 terrorist attacks, you could see out the window the huge plume of thick smoke still billowing from the hole where the twin towers of the World Trade Centre had been. The sky was blue, the weather balmy, and the air smelled of death. Last week it was wet and windy when I went again to Ground Zero. The six-hectare site is orderly now, but oddly quiet. The base of the four-storey deep crater is lined with orange safety cones. Around the perimeter fence are...

    BAYONNE (NEW JERSEY), September 16 (Itar-Tass) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin laid a stone into the foundation of a monument to the victims of September 11, 2001 terrorist acts. The ceremony took place on Thursday in the town of Bayonne on the Hudson River. The stone bears a sign reading: “A gift from the Russian people. President Vladimir Putin. A monument will be erected here devoted to the fight against international terrorism. The work by sculptor Zurab Tsereteli”. The 30-meter high monument will be erected in front of lower Manhattan where the World Trade Center twins stood. The broken bronze...

    Earlier this week we discussed the 9/11 Anniversary and one writer mentioned that Google had not placed a logo or identifying symbol on their opening page. I wrote an e-mail and received a reply. I just sent an e-mail in return reminding them that I will not forgot to look next year to see what they have "come up with", and as far as "hurt feelings" of the international commuity, I thought Google was still a U.S. corporation. In addition there were lives from other nations lost in that tragedy. A logo needn't be their "only answer" in opting to...

    Early Sunday morning, I sat down to write my column. As I typed “September,” the computer prompted me with the date. September 11, 2005. My stomach dropped. I hadn't remembered. But all of a sudden, there it was, staring me in the face, hovering over the otherwise blank page. In a flash, it all came back to me. I could barely sleep for the flood of memories. I realized how long it had been since I'd thought of 9/11. Reference to it would pass before me from time to time, but I hadn't remembered it. Shortly after September 11, news...

We took the fight to Afghanistan and then trimmed the Al Qaida monster to nothing in Iraq, establishing a democratic government in both countries and exposing them to the life of the free. There is nothing that terrorists hate more than the free helping others to be free. Well, Mr. Terrorist, nice try but you have failed.

Using photo-editing software, a depiction of a Muslim hijab was drawn crudely around the bareheaded woman's face, noted the weblog Jihad Watch. CAIR removed the doctored photo from its front page after Jihad Watch drew attention to it yesterday. The original image can be seen now among the group's press releases. By comparison, the backs...

    Many readers will have watched the recent production on The Discovery Channel of “The Flight that Fought Back,” a dramatization of the events that occurred on September 11, 2001, aboard Flight 93. Using a wide variety of tapes and personal interviews, the producers recreated a harrowing scenario of what happened aboard the hijacked flight as it was speeding towards Washington, DC, at nearly 600 mph, controlled by four of the Middle East’s finest Islamic homicidal lunatics. The presentation was shown without interruption and was gripping from beginning to end. The survivors of those killed that day are to be thanked...

    Four years ago to this day, United Airlines Flight 93 was flying over unremarkable farmland near Somerset, Pennsylvania. Inside the plane there was chaos, as the passengers started to organize their legendary resistance. “Let’s Roll,” said Todd Beamer, as he and his fellows charged into the cockpit of the enormous jet. Here is where they and the other passengers are now resting forever. This is not a political memorial. I see no racism, no attacks on Islam, just a moving tribute to a much-beloved group of people. There has been a great controversy about the idea of a permanent memorial,...

    The architect of the memorial to a plane downed in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001, said Wednesday he would work to satisfy critics who complained that it honors terrorists with its crescent-shaped design. Designer Paul Murdoch said he is "somewhat optimistic" that the spirit of the design could be maintained. "It's a disappointment there is a misinterpretation and a simplistic distortion of this, but if that is a public concern, than that is something we will look to resolve in a way that keeps the essential qualities," Murdoch, 48, of Los Angeles, said in a telephone interview. Murdoch's design, "Crescent...

    The left is massing for their huge anti-war protest in Washington, DC, on September the 24th. This isn't about Cindy Sheehan. Led by the communist supported International A.N.S.W.E.R. group, the left believes this one massive protest will deliver a Vietnam style knockout blow to our president and the war effort. This is their big "Vietnam war" protest of the current generation. Do not allow this group of America-hating hippies and misfits win the day for the terrorists. Do not allow them to destroy public support for the war as they did in the 60's. Do not allow them to demoralize...

    Four years ago, most Americans shed our ignorance and innocence as hijacked passenger planes slammed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a lonely field in rural Pennsylvania. The terrorists struck at our heart, but couldn't touch our spirit. On that day, we saw and felt disbelief, horror, anger, fear and hysteria... but also saw levels of heroism, compassion and resolve that many of us never thought to witness. We saw the lowest humanity had to offer, in the terrorists who deliberately murdered thousands of innocent people. We saw the greatest of humanity as well,...

    Four years after 9/11 the postmortem of that disaster continues to focus on the institutional failures of our intelligence agencies and government bureaucracies. Yet the larger intellectual and cultural corruption that in part made possible many of those misjudgments and mistakes does not receive the public attention it deserves. The politicizing of the academy, for example, that accelerated in the sixties had compromised the study of Islam and the Middle East long before Islamic terrorism appeared on our cultural radar. Because of this ideological distortion, centuries of consensus about the aggressive, intolerant, and expansionist nature of Islam –– an agreement...

     FOUR YEARS LATER, few doubt that 9/11 ushered in a new epoch. What's less obvious is that that day also marked the end of an era. For Sept. 11, 2001, was the last day of the 1990s. Of course that's not literally, chronologically true. But just as the great British historian Eric Hobsbawm wrote a history of the 19th century, which, he decided, started in 1789 and ended in 1914, so we can look back on the 1990s and see that they too were not an exact match with the dates on the calendar.

About a week after, one of my local radio stations held a fund-raiser and this is how their trailer for it opened. Cue the terminal-illness-movie-of-the-week soupy piano. Then: ''After the tragic events of Sept. 11 . . .'' And, by the time I'd heard it half-a-dozen times, I retuned the dial and never listened to the station again.

    FOUR YEARS after terrorists took down the Twin Towers, smashed a hole in the Pentagon and met their match in an airliner over the fields of Pennsylvania, our government has failed to protect us from another disaster that was forseen by the experts. What can be done to break this pattern? The Bush administration’s domestic response to 9/11 — to consolidate federal emergency avoidance and preparedness services into a giant bureaucracy staffed with politically loyal but not necessarily expert hands — has proven a dismal failure. The administration that had preached smaller, more efficient government did not take its own...

    NEW YORK -- The tourists from California peered through the slats of a metal fence surrounding the World Trade Center site, looking down into the nearly empty 16 acres for a sign of what happened here on September 11, 2001. Four years after terrorists hijacked jetliners that destroyed the twin towers, Steve and Marta Pilling thought they would find a memorial, something more than the names of the 2,749 victims on panels attached to the fence. "This reminds me more of a construction site," said Mr. Pilling of Murrieta, Calif. Because the downtown Manhattan site is both a valuable piece...

More than 600 family members who lost brothers or sisters will read the victims' names at the site, while Gov. George E.

    Progress depends on how this new war is defined. It is a campaign to destroy al-Qaeda's terrorist enterprise. It has become inextricably intertwined with the struggle to suppress an insurgency in Iraq. It is a selective effort to defeat other terrorist organizations that threaten the United States and its allies. It is a decades-old effort to combat terrorism as a mode of conflict that will continue for decades. And it is conflated with efforts to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction on the presumption that their development by states will lead inevitably to their acquisition by terrorists –...

    - Today marks the fourth anniversary of Nine-Eleven, the attack on America by terrorist hijackers. People are remembering in a variety of ways. President Bush attends services in Washington. New Yorkers pause this morning at the moments two jetliners hit the World Trade Center towers, 8:46 and 9:03, and again at 9:59 and 10:29 a-m, when the towers collapsed. More than 600 family members who lost brothers or sisters will read the victims' names. Last year the names were read by parents and grandparents. In Washington there's a walk of remembrance. The Freedom Walk, as its called, goes near the...

    September 10, 2005 Ho Hum; Four Years After 9/11 Vincent Fiore While the flood waters are pumped out of the condemned city of New Orleans, lost to the disaster caused by Hurricane Katrina is the upcoming anniversary of an event which was wholly man-made, and of singular importance: September 11, 2001. As the forth anniversary of that brutal and horrific day approaches, the politicians--mostly Democrats--and the old media, are preoccupied once again with the hunting of George W. Bush. Not that I didn’t expect it, mind you, for let’s face it: “If a tree were to fall in the forest,...

    It's now four years since 9-11. Four years since we watched, horrified, as the second airliner hit the World Trade Center tower, since a pal called me to say he was standing out on his balcony watching the Pentagon burn. You can forgive yourself if those images, though etched permanently in your mind, also seem faded into the mists of time. This week end, everyone who loves the freedoms they enjoy should take time to remember 9-11, because we dare not forget. When we remember 9-11, we need to remember it in the context of who we are, and who...

    Government teacher Nareg Keshishian never expected a parent to complain when he advised his Advanced Placement class he planned to show a documentary on media bias in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But a parent did, telling the principal of Glendale's Hoover High School that the documentary "Outfoxed," which alleges right-wing bias at Fox News, was one-sided and that Keshishian wasn't presenting the "facts" about the attacks in a fair and balanced way. "When they come up with a documentary showing the bias in CNN, I will happily air it. I want to bring to the students'...

    The History channel is regirgitating a slanted viewpoint of the 9-11 terrorist attack on America. A coverage that the DNC would be proud to endorse. I wrote them an email just before this posting: Your programming of the events of 9-11 is dispicably slanted to the extreme left. It's as if the Democratic National Committee made this footage in preparing for the upcoming national elections by denigrating the President of the United States, placing in your interviews known extreme leftest, liberal wackos on this disgusting program. I will let the whitehouse, and news stations of this dispicable anti-Bush slanted coverage...

    I just got done yelling at my father in law. He didn't really deserve it… he was telling me again how there is a conspiracy to keep a low consumption conventional gasoline engine from the public...'200 miles to the gallon' he said in his heavy Hungarian accent. It's a silly argument that we've had before and I don't usually get upset at him for it, but today I melted down. I apologized of course and everyone seemed to understand. They know I'm only upset because it's September 11th. That day 4 years ago, I was home. I had interviewed on...
