    Rudy Giuliani attack current Mayor Bill de Blasio for the way he responded to the bomb attack in New York City over the weekend. Rudy Giuliani, who earned the title of America's mayor for his handling of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, on Monday excoriated current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for looking like he was "kind of on Mars" during the early reaction to a weekend bomb attack. "He looked like he didn't know what he was doing," Giuliani told Circa in an interview when asked about de Blasio's initial response to an attack that wounded 29...
  • Visa security loophole exploited by 9/11 attackers still open 15 years later

    At least five of the Sept. 11 hijackers exploited a glaring hole in visa security to stay in the U.S. beyond their time — allowing them to board the planes and conduct their murderous attack. Fifteen years later, and despite a clear consensus on the need for improvement, that gaping hole remains. “In too many cases that’s still happening — they come in legally, but we don’t know if they’ve left, and if they haven’t left, we don’t know where they are,” said Tom Kean, former governor of New Jersey and chairman of the 9/11 Commission that looked into the...
  • Trump Should Blame Clinton, Not Bush, for 9/11

    American Thinker ^ | October 21, 2015 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Repeating the Democratic mantra that President George W. Bush, barely eight months into his presidency on September 11, 2001, was responsible for the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centers, Donald Trump says his immigration stance would have prevented the atrocity. On Monday, the mouth that roars told “Fox and Friends that his policies would have made it more difficult for the 9/11 hijackers to obtain visas and challenged presidential rival Jeb. Bush’s assertion that his brother, President George W. Bush “kept us safe”:

    On this September 11, 2015 our Senate has joined our enemies in making our enemies in Iran the most powerful terrorists on earth. Fourteen years ago, on September 11, 2001 we sustained the most devastating terrorist’s attacks in our history. We were caught completely by surprise and to the delight of our Muslim enemies, thousands of innocent American men women and children were murdered. They enjoyed every minute of it. In our national bewilderment some people thought the seventh century savages attacked us because the numeric value of September 11, is 9 -1-1 the national number to call our police....

    Amherst town meeting ^ | 09/10/2001 | RaceBannon
    This town hall meeting took place Sep 10, 2001 in Amherst Mass 12 hours before the first plane struck the towers in New York City, before the Pentagon was hit, and before Flight 93 was taken down in a suicide dive by the terrorists who were being overrun by brave Americans. This video is significant because of the statements made at the 40 minute to 50 minute mark and again at the 1 hour 10 minute mark which were in response to comments made at the 45 minute mark. Keep in mind this was made 12 hours before the World...

    The proposed adoption of $300,000 worth of reading materials for Cody, Wyoming students stalled this week amid criticisms about the curriculum’s “very liberal, very slanted view of the world.” School board and community members spoke out against a slate of proposed materials for K-12 students that cover topics like global warming, evolution and race. The materials are published by education giant Pearson and Boston publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt ... that aligns with the national Common Core standards. But many in the community are concerned about how the texts address issues like global warming, which is treated as settled science ......

    Four Maywood firefighters have been relieved of duty, and more could be suspended Wednesday, for refusing to remove American flag decals from their helmets and lockers. The four refused to comply with an order issued last week by Chief Craig Bronaugh to remove all stickers from their helmets and lockers. The four drew the line when it came to the flag decals. ... Adam Rosen said he is “shocked” that an agency of first responders would enforce such an order the week of Sept. 11. The four suspended firefighters said they were told that the order was issued because of...

    Critics say a Muslim group picked the wrong day – Sept. 11 - to march on Washington to complain about religious profiling and President Obama’s handling of an investigation into the terror attacks that rocked America 12 years ago. The mass demonstration, called the "Million Muslim March," was changed to a more mainstream-sounding event, "Million American March Against Fear," but the name did not seem to gain much traction and has apparently reverted back to its original title.

    U.S. officials are increasingly suspicious that the murder Tuesday of the U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other American officials was a "coordinated" strike timed for the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks -- and not the result of a protest against an anti-Islam film

    SIERRA VISTA— Most of the students who gathered in remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks during a ceremony at Village Meadows Elementary School on Tuesday were not born when the World Trade Center came crashing down 11 years ago. “For her, it’s history,” Peggie Johnson said, referring to her 9-year-old daughter Willow Johnson. Yet, even as Willow’s sister sang "God Bless the USA" with her classmates, Peggie Johnson could still remember images of the planes hitting the World Trade Center in New York City and it did not feel like any time had passed at all. “It’s hard,”...

    The Telegraph (UK) ^ | 10 Sept 2011 | Janet Daley
    The tragic events of 9/11 were immediately followed by a grotesque and shameful fusillade of anti-Americanism, which still resonates today. I had already written my column that day. I still recall, although almost everything else from that morning is wiped from my memory, that the subject of it – this column that no one would ever see – was Tony Blair's upcoming appearance at the TUC conference. Because I had been engrossed in producing my copy for the next day, September 12, 2001, I had not heard any news. In the early afternoon, I filed my piece and turned on...

    National Security: The Sept. 11 commission stated that our biggest failure was one of imagination. Imagine an Iranian nuclear device detonating high over the American heartland. They're working on it. On the same day the 9/11 Commission issued its report, another commission issued a report on a threat that could change our world and way of life in ways we can scarcely imagine. It is a real and credible threat, and it is largely being ignored. The threat is a phenomenon known as electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, and demonstrates why the issue of homeland security extends beyond the need for...

While in many ways we deserve credit for having accomplished an enormous amount under incredibly difficult circumstances (specifically in the military realm), in a couple of ways we have failed to rise to the challenges that the attacks presented.Before 9/11, I was despondent about the state...

    It is that time, the day we knew was coming, the date we did not need to mark on our calendars. What happened on that terrible Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, was a tragedy that profoundly affected us all. We stood motionless as we witnessed the unthinkable become reality. We gasped as we saw twin towers crumble, and we cried as we watched grown men weep. And then we gathered together, as communities and as a nation, to seek a collective consolation from those around us - our families, our friends, our colleagues. Theodore Roosevelt wrote that “Death is always, and...
