    The New York Post ^ | 2 Jun 16 | Post Editorial Board
    That was a “major national-security address”? Hillary Clinton’s folks billed her San Diego speech Thursday as a big deal. And it certainly was a prime opportunity to lay out her views on foreign policy and America’s role in the world. But what she delivered was a 45-minute rant against Donald Trump — with nary a clue about her plans for leading America on the international stage. Worse, her string of dump-on-Trump quips might’ve worked better if she had substituted her name for his, starting with her attack on Trump’s “series of rants” — a perfect description of her own speech....

    Jersey Journal Editorial ^ | November 23, 2015
    Donald Trump must apologize to Muslim Americans and to Jersey City for his untrue, divisive and reprehensible comments perpetuating an old rumor we thought had rightly died. By repeating – and indeed embellishing – this hateful rumor, Trump once again ratchets up the ugliness in the current political climate. Thousands and thousands of people in Jersey City did not cheer the destruction of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Period. End of story. There is no need to continue to "fact check'' his words. The truth is that Trump's statements are factually, ethically and morally wrong. Those of...
  • MSA Rejects Moment of Recognition Resolution for 9/11

    The Minnesota Republic ^ | November 11, 2015 | Kasey Carpenter
    On Tuesday, November 10, the Minnesota Student Association (MSA)-the undergraduate student government at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (UMN)- rejected a resolution for a moment of recognition on future anniversaries of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Theo Menon, the student group representative to MSA for the College Republicans (CRs) at UMN, introduced the resolution; MSA's forum voted against it 36-23 (with three abstentions). The proposed resolution pointed to the university's lack of any sort of commemoration regarding the attacks on 9/11. It then called for a campus-wide moment of recognition on every September 11 from now on. "I wrote...

    Today we traveled from Caen, to Sainte-Mere-Eglise, home to the museum for the United States Airborne troops from WW2. The town was abuzz with dozens and dozens of U.S. Military jeeps and tanks. Every one of them driving the streets, yes, driving. These are all WW2 hardware, which was never returned to the U.S, and have been restored to pristine, war era condition.To add to the realism, dozens and dozens of men were dressed in U.S. military uniform, the same worn during the D Day invasion. Honestly, it was difficult to not believe these men/actors, weren’t the real thing.

The choice they made would cost them their lives. And they knew it. Many passengers called their loved ones to say good-bye. Then...

    Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, speaking for his fellow Republicans ten years after the September 11th attacks, denounced President Barack Obama's handling of national security on Saturday. Giuliani, giving the party's weekly address, notably blasted Obama's decision to withdraw some 33,000 US troops from Afghanistan by September 2012 and bring home all combat forces by 2014. "Perhaps the most dangerous impulse we've developed since September 11 is impatience demonstrated by the calls to put our armed forces on timetables," said the former mayor, hailed for his take-charge response to the attacks. ...And he blasted "the inappropriate decision-making and...

Rick Rescorla, who was head of security for banking firm Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, is credited with saving 2,700 people ten years ago by making sure they left the World Trade Centre's South Tower before it collapsed.

    NEW YORK - A decade after the Sept. 11 attacks enveloped Lower Manhattan in a thick gray dust of pulverized buildings and human remains, the surrounding area has become a trendy neighborhood with a growing population. Although an iconic part of the New York City skyline and a symbol of New York's exuberant commercialism, the World Trade Center's twin towers were never much loved by locals, some of whom saw them as unattractive and out of scale with the surrounding area. Now from the horror and rubble, a new community is growing. "It feels like one of the happiest and...

"We will never forget the devastation of the area that came to be known as ground zero. Never. But the time has come to call those 16 acres what they are: The World Trade Center and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum," Bloomberg said in a speech on the rebuilding of lower Manhattan.

    the White House strategy for the 10th anniversary of 9/11 is to look to the future, think global, avoid mentions of al Qaeda and proclaim the remembrance to be a day of service. Things are more visceral at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History, however.

A former staffer of Vice President Dick Cheney spoke out against the move, saying “I think the fact that you would actually instruct government officials to speak differently about 9/11 simply based on where they’re standing is not just insulting to American audiences and to foreign audiences, but again I think its a little bit of a window into...

    The last time President Obama went to Ground Zero was 2008, and he was with John McCain for what both campaigns described, without irony, as a non-political observance of the anniversary of the 2001 attacks. Any time a politician goes to Ground Zero -- in September or otherwise -- and especially with a retinue of national media in tow, it's deeply political. Which is what makes Obama's planned trip to Ground Zero on Thursday so curious. What's he going to say? How to avoid making a post-kill mission trip to the hallowed ground not appear exploitative and intensely political? "He...

    Nine years ago this week, we began to chant: "We never will forget 9/11." Nine years later, I think too many of us have forgotten, especially those in the White House. Islamic extremists murdered almost 3,000 innocent Americans on 9/11. Who would have believed that within a decade of that tragic event, we'd have a president who believes, according to his own 2009 Cairo confession and creed, that it is part of his "responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear"? Not to mention his mission to fight for the new...

James Conway told reporters on Tuesday. “In some ways, we think right now it’s probably giving our enemy sustenance….In fact, we’ve intercepted communications that say, ‘Hey, you know, we only have to hold out for so long.’”

    Many of the Republicans who have urged their party to tone down its sharp rhetoric against the construction of an Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero or who don't oppose the project share a common trait: service as top advisers to then-President George W.

They have not coordinated with one another, nor the former president, who has said...
