    FOUND beneath tens-of-thousands of tonnes of rubble and twisted steel, this soiled and crumpled flag is a solemn reminder that September 11, 2001, was more than an American tragedy. Now, almost three years since 2749 people perished in New York, the Australian flag is going home to be preserved and mounted by the Federal Government. The Government intends to consult relatives of the 11 Australians killed by terrorists on September 11 on how best to display the flag. Ten Australians died in New York and one in Washington DC. The flag, measuring about 1m x 1.5m, was excavated from the...
  • Sept. 11 Report To Fill In Details Of Missed Chances

    WASHINGTON - The final report of the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks will not conclude definitively that the terrorist strike could have been prevented, but it is clear that U.S. officials missed a series of opportunities to stop some of the hijackers, disrupt the plot and perhaps save lives. The most significant signal appears to have come in April 2000,when Niaz Khan, a Briton of Pakistani heritage, walked into the FBI’s office in Newark, N.J. Khan told agents that he had been trained by al-Qaida, the terrorist network that carried out the Sept. 11 attacks, and that there...

    <p>FBI has new 9/11 hijacking suspect By Toni Locy, USA TODAY WASHINGTON — The FBI has identified an al-Qaeda operative who agents believe tried as late as August 2001 to join the 9/11 terrorist plot as the "20th hijacker," a top federal law enforcement official said Tuesday. "We are fairly confident we know who No. 20 is," said the official, who is involved in the 9/11 probe and asked not to be identified. The official said the unidentified al-Qaeda operative got into the USA but "had to leave" the country shortly before 19 hijackers carried out the attacks that killed more than 3,000 people. The official would not say why the operative left, whether he is alive or whether he is in U.S. custody.</p>

    Now comes the incredibly asinine assertion by Democratic presidential hopeful Wesley Clark (he is a lifelong Democrat, right? – that was never really spelled out clearly) that President George W. Bush and his administration were somehow responsible for the attacks of September 11th, 2001. To listen to Clark pontificate, and we have to pay attention because his viewpoint could shift at any minute, one would believe the intelligence community never existed before Bush took office and that he alone created the intelligence problem that existed then and still exists today. Nothing could be further from the truth. I am constantly...

    Saudi officials, furious over a congressional report issued last week alleging possible links between Saudi individuals in the government and some of the Sept. 11 hijackers, have requested and been granted a meeting today between Foreign Minister Saud Faisal and President Bush. The hastily scheduled White House visit, which will take place shortly after Bush meets with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, demonstrates the level of Saudi anger and the kingdom's clout with the Bush administration. A key issue in the dispute is that 28 pages of the 900-page report dealing with allegations about Saudi Arabia was entirely classified --...

And about 20 percent of Germans in all age groups hold this view, a survey of 1,000 people conducted for the weekly Die Zeit said. It also said 68 percent of all Germans felt the media had not reported the full truth behind the attacks, in which some 3,000 people were killed when hijacked planes were crashed into the World Trade...

    Many things changed on 9/11/01, especially here in the United States, but the greatest effect the bombings had on American society seems to have gone unnoticed: the death of the American Left. The great political, cultural, economic, and social movement that has shaped American and world society since the 1960s died in the rubble of the World Trade Center and nobody seemed to notice or care. The surest way to kill off an ideology and its subsidiary political or cultural movements is to expose the beliefs upon which it is based as false or flawed. That's exactly what the 9/11...

    DOES AMERICA DESERVE ANOTHER SEPTEMBER 11TH ? When I read a newspaper or a weekly newsmagazine, listen to the network newscasters, or hear the captured sound bites of the politicians they promote (mostly those opposed to Bush and his administration), I find it impossible to comprehend that September 11th was only a year ago. Listening to some of the politicians and the liberal media, one might get the idea that it is history from a long time past and that our country is no longer threatened. The horror of that day and what it meant for the future of our...

    For years, most people have tried to ignore the worrying fact that Anthony Blair has an extremist wife.

Cherie Booth, who is the Prime Minister's closest adviser, is political correctness made flesh. I believe she and her socialworker views are hugely influential in many areas of Government policy.
