    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...

    Hello all, basically I want to give an update. A few months ago I asked the members of Free Republic to help me create a video project for my history class. I gave all sources credit, but at times it was impossible to give the exact source as many of the photos came from a database. The video is meant to be free for viewing and for no commercial purpose. Basically, the project was a success and here is how you can view the movie: OK, Update folks. Sorry to those who tried to help out getting this online, my...

    <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>

    The Washington Dispatch ^ | October 30th, 2003 | Frank Salvato
    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...

    President Bush, joined by First Lady Laura, and Vice President and Mrs. Cheney, observed a moment of silence on the White House lawn this morning to honor the victims of the September 11th, 2001 tragedies. The First Couple began the day with a memorial service at St. John's Episcopal Church, and later in the afternoon visited wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army hospital.

May we never forget exactly how we felt, where we were and how much we all meant to each other on that horrible day. Maybe it is the old firefighter/paramedic coming out in me but every time I see a picture of the World Trade Center I get very anxious.

    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 --...

    BERLIN, July 23 (Reuters) - Almost one in three Germans below the age of 30 believes the U.S. government may have sponsored the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, according to a poll published on Wednesday. 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...

    ALBANY - Activist and comedian Dick Gregory said yesterday he suspects CIA and FBI "thugs" had prior knowledge of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Gregory told the New York State Black and Puerto Rican Legislators annual conference that bits of evidence overlooked by most of the mainstream media show some people in power had knowledge of the attacks beforehand. "You all sit around and really believe that some little snot-nosed punky Arabs could pull off something ... the Russians in their heyday ... didn't have the intelligence to come into the country and blow up a building like these...
