    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...

    Al-Qaida has a master plan to take over the world and turn it into an Islamic state - by the year 2020. Wishful thinking? Not in the minds of the top terrorist lieutenants interviewed by Jordanian journalist Fouad Hussein for a new book - including Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, mastermind of many atrocities in Iraq. The plan, which is revealed for the first time in the Australian publication The Age, has seven phases: Phase 1: The "awakening" in the consciousness of Muslims around the world following the 9/11 attacks, which were aimed at provoking the U.S. into declaring war on the...

Chaplain James May. Families and friends of those we are here to honor.

    The site itself was cleared of its millions of tons of rubble in an astonishing eight months. This was a triumph of planning, muscle and will. But even before it was cleared, the site was the focus of various forces: real estate and political interests, the wishes of the families of the almost 3,000 dead, the desires of New Yorkers in the immediate neighborhood and beyond. They were not all cynical. Many were idealistic. For some it was sacred ground, never to be touched. Others resisted turning the site into a necropolis, a place inhabited by ghosts. They wanted it...

    The issue: Four years since the terrorist attacks Our view: Part of the 9/11 healing process is bringing bin Laden to justice. Four years ago, our nation was changed forever on this day. This year, for the first time since those horrific terrorist attacks, we feel as if the nation is finally starting to heal - events and activities are scheduled for this day without nearly the anxiety felt in 2002, 2003 and even 2004. But even though it's important to heal - and to focus on a more recent human tragedy in the Gulf - we can't ever forget...

Family members worry the International Freedom Center will take attention away from those who died in the attack. They said the museum should not be allowed to show exhibits about struggles for freedom around the world.

For this reason, Clinton?s role on Sept. 11, and why he must be held accountable for his blood-guiltiness, can never be overemphasized. In fact, Lt. Col. Robert ?Buzz?

    The Eleventh of Never Among the few certain truths of Sept. 11, 2001, is one that applies to every day that dawns. That there is no guarantee of tomorrow, or the next five minutes. This is the central provision of all contracts between people and their lives. No plans, large or small, are exempt. The impact of 9/11 on the world's large plans has been well documented. Its impact on the smaller ones has been chronicled mainly and rightfully in the stories of those who died or witnessed the terror attacks up close, physically and emotionally. But what about the...

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Opposition leader and former defense chief Ahmed Shah Massood was injured and his close aide was killed Sunday in an explosion in northern Afghanistan, said Hajji Kahar, an opposition spokesman. Two men from Algeria posing as journalists apparently hid the explosive device in their camera, Kahar told The Associated Press in a satellite telephone interview from Khodja Bahauddin in northern Takhar province, where the explosion occurred. It's not clear whether the two men with the camera were killed. It's believed they were suicide bombers. "There was a lot of noise and smoke," said Kahar. Massood ...

    How the Left Undermined America's Security After 9/11By David | September 9, 2005 (The following article by David Horowitz first appeared in our March 24, 2004, issue. We are reprinting it to mark the three-year anniversary of 9/11. It has been updated to incorporate recent findings about the “Able Danger” unit. -- The Editors) *“While the nation was having a good laugh at the expense of Florida’s hanging chads and butterfly ballots, Mohammed Atta and Marwan al Shehhi were there, in Florida, learning to drive commercial jetliners [and ram them into the World Trade Center towers].

    "These are the times that try men's souls." --Thomas Paine This Sunday will mark four years since the catastrophic attack on our nation, Tuesday, 11 September, 2001. The events of that day seem far removed amid the images of death, human suffering and catastrophic destruction this past two weeks -- the result of the most devastating natural disaster in our nation's history. Focus, if you will, on the haunting images of four years ago. Through smoke and tears, we beheld that morning's mayhem, its mass murder, moment by moment. Our memories of that soft September day are crisp. ...The New...

    A 9/11-themed art exhibit at Cooper Union has bombed with families of terror attack victims, who say its vitriol against President Bush, seeming mockery of war hero Pat Tillman and other anti-American images denigrate the memory of their loved ones. "What is the matter with these people? Where is their sense of decency?" asked Debra Burlingame, whose brother was a pilot aboard the airliner hijacked and crashed into the Pentagon and who has been among relatives fighting the location of the International Freedom Center at Ground Zero. The artworks bashing Bush and the military are included in a program called...

    As we approach the fourth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the obvious question is: What, if anything, have we learned since then? We have learned a great deal about the threat posed by radical Islam, but not enough about what gives it its vitality. Before September 11, 2001, most Americans had never heard of Osama bin Laden or al Qaeda. While they may have known about the existence of Islamic terrorism, they thought that it was something that happened “over there,” not here at home. Well, that has changed. Americans not only understand...

    >Greetings Supporters! We have received several emails asking if the rally is still on and the answer is YES! We had considered postponing the rally because of the tragic events in the Gulf Cost, but New York Officials have not stopped their efforts to raise funds for the International Freedom Center (IFC) and there is no time for inaction. Yesterday, New York Mayor, Mike Bloomberg, urged American corporations to continue to fund his vision of a 9/11 memorial, one that includes the IFC. Over the course of the last ten days, we have channeled our energies into Katrina relief. Our...

    Al-Qaeda fighters become producers, film directors, video cameras have become their most potent weapon. Stripped of its Afghan haven and chased across the globe, the Al-Qaeda terror network is increasingly resorting to "media jihad" four years after the September 11 attacks on the United States for which it took credit. The Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF), heir to the "Global Front for Fighting Jews and Christians" set up by Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in 1998, presents itself as the hub for Al-Qaeda propaganda on the Internet. Its emergence is testament to the weight now being placed by Islamist militants...

    FOUR YEARS ON All this week on SteynOnline we're marking the anniversary of September 11th with some commentary from those early days. I mentioned this piece in this week's Daily Telegraph column. The contrast between that Tuesday morning four years ago and the events in New Orleans seems very sad to me. Scroll down for my thoughts on the primal, righteous anger of those first hours, the failure of the government bureaucracy, and the reluctance to abandon September 10th tropes. But first some thoughts on Hollywood and 9/11. Re-reading the piece below, I was struck by the sheer perversity of...
