    In the months and weeks leading up to the election, I had been thinking about the situation this country is in by likening it to being on a crashing plane. On the one hand, we had the current pilot who wasn’t able to control the plane, and the fact that it was crashing was due in large part to his piloting incompetence. On the other hand, we had a passenger who had a great deal of piloting experience, who was volunteering to take the controls. In his previous piloting experience, this volunteer had saved another plane from crashing. If we...

    Former FBI employee 'saw angels guarding Flight 93 site after deadly crash on 9/11' A former FBI employee sent to the Flight 93 crash site on September 11, 2001 has claimed she saw a legion of angels guarding the scene when she arrived. Lillie Leonardi has made the bizarre claims in a book written after she retired from the FBI due to post-traumatic stress disorder which began after the terror attacks. In the book, she explained she arrived at the still-smouldering scene three hours after terrorists hijacked the passenger jet and it crashed into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

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

    With eyes on New York, it’s easy to overlook the other ground-zero mosque that is presently being built in Shanksville Pennsylvania at the Flight 93 crash site. That 9/11 site is home to what will soon be the world’s largest open-air mosque disguised as a memorial, contends author Alec Rawls. After five years of insignificant media coverage and minimal public awareness, construction of the Flight 93 Memorial centerpiece is already in progress. The giant half-mile wide Islamic-shaped red crescent of maple trees is slated for completion next year on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, when the autumn leaves of the...

Its design insults the memory of 9-11 hijack victim Tom Burnett, Jr. says his father.

And a member of Congress has demanded the National Park Service make changes in its plans. But there's been no substantive response, and now the activists say it's time for the American people to let officials know whether they want to pay for and have installed in the memorial a crescent that points to Mecca to make up a "mihrab," the foundational point for every Islamic mosque, a tower that...

Other than the very beginning United 93 is filmed in a real time manner matching minute-for-minute what is believed to have occured on that fateful flight (buttressed by phone calls and cockpit recordings).

    Universal's new movie, "United 93," is about United Airlines Flight 93, hijacked on 9-11 by Islamic terrorists shortly after leaving Newark, N.J., for San Francisco. The terrorists intended to fly the plane to Washington, D.C., and crash it into the Capitol. Instead, the passengers fought back and forced the plane down in Pennsylvania, thereby saving the lives of any number of people on the ground in Washington and saving America from a devastating blow to its image. Incredibly there is some controversy about this film. Apparently many Americans are not "ready" to see a film about 9-11 "so soon" after...

A panel of 10 people, including victims' relatives, chose the finalists from 1,011 designs submitted by established firms and novices alike. Because only a fraction of the victims' remains were recovered, the designs are all low-key in relation to the reclaimed strip mine and family farms surrounding the site. Flight 93 was the only of four highjacked planes that did not...

    9/11 question
    being currently undecided as to where to spend the upcoming 9/11 'anniversary', i'm wondering if anyone might have heard of plans for a memorial service in Shanksville.
