  • Fighter Pilot Was Tasked With Taking Out United 93 By Crashing Into It

    09/12/2014 5:52:45 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 58 replies ^ | September 12, 2014 | Matt Vespa
    On September 11, 2001, Lt. Heather “Lucky” Penney had one harrowing mission: bring down United 93. She took off from Andrews Air Force Base, but without weapons. No missiles, machine guns, etc.; she would have to ram into the commercial airliner to save American lives. “I would essentially be a kamikaze pilot,” she said. The 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks has come and gone; we will always remember those who have died. But this story of a fighter pilot who was willing to sacrifice herself to save others is surely worth the read. For years, she never gave...

    Presidential contender, and current front-runner, Senator John McCain addressed a crowd gathered in Shanksville, PA today to commemorate the 7th year anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9/11. The passengers of United 93 took fate into their hands on that fateful date and fought back against their aggressors, diverting the plane from reaching its destination of the United States Capitol. John McCain spoke giving thanks to the fallen hero's: "Its believed that the terrorists on United Flight 93 might have intended to crash the airplane into the United States Capitol..." "Hundreds if not thousands of people who worked in that...

    Reuters ^ | 10/26/06
    PARIS, Oct 26 (Reuters) - A French court on Thursday gave a nine year prison sentence to a Moroccan man accused of associating with hijackers involved in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, an official at the Paris prosecutors office said. Karim Mehdi was accused of "associating with wrongdoers in connection with a terrorist undertaking" -- a generic charge that in France covers a wide variety of criminal activity. The prosecution suspected that at the time of his arrest he was planning an attack on a tourist complex in France's Indian Ocean territory, La Reunion. Police believed Mehdi knew Ramzi bin...

    From patriotic poetry to equestrian monuments, most of the instruments that once elevated war and national tragedy into the realm of collective experience have lost their power to stir us. There is no contemporary counterpart to the Civil Wars Battle Hymn of the Republic or Norman Rockwells mass-produced prints of the Four Freedoms from World War II. A song like Over There, to which America marched briskly in 1917, is as remote to contemporary sensibilities as the Bayeux Tapestry. The only artistic medium that now seems capable of informing the national mind about the shape and meaning of events is...
  • Remembering 9/11 (Stephen Miller Discusses How Duke U's 9/11 Memorial Resistance Was Broken Alert)

    A September 11th memorial poses peculiar problems for the modern American university. In the typical college of today, the intellectual vogues are anti-Americanism and sympathy for Americas enemies. By contrast, patriotism and support for our national defense are embraced about as strongly on college campuses as are capitalism and Dick Cheney. Anything that portrays America as under attack by Islamic terrorists, as even the most purely apolitical 9/11 memorial inevitably will, challenges the university dogma. And so it is often left to students properly to mourn and remember that tragic day when its anniversary arrives. But what if students wanted...

    While searching for her birth parents two years ago, Mariah Mills found more than she bargained for: A hero of Sept. 11, 2001. Mills' biological father, who had given Mills up for adoption when he and his then-girlfriend were in college, was Tom Burnett, a leader of a group that fought back on United Flight 93 before it crashed in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001. Mills, 21, learned about her birth father in 2004 after she turned 19, the legal age in Minnesota for requesting a birth certificate with names of birth parents and subsequent DNA tests confirmed...

    As we all know tomorrow is the fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. While there are many choices of what to view, including real time 9/11 rebroadcasts on certain networks, I would humbly suggest another choice. 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). Here's the plan: Since most video stores are not open at 8 in the morning rent United 93 tonight. Pop the movie into your dvd player around 8:15am and be...

    While there isnt a person in this country that doesnt know what happened on September 11, 2001, most of the somber spotlight tends to fall on the collapse and tragedy in the twin towers of the World Trade Center. The other two incidents, the crashing of a plane into the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania crash, often seem to be overlooked. Today many films are being made about the events of that day and what happened in New York, but Paul Greengrass decided to push the focus to Flight 93, which was intended to hit Washington D.C. but crashed in Shanksville,...

    This e-mail is riveting as it relates the perspectives of a seasoned, commercial pilot. / jpm Susie and I just got back from seeing "UAL Flight 93", it was absolutely gripping, and as a former airline pilot who was flying a trip that morning on a Boeing 767 from Cincinnati to Orlando it was almost too horrific to was very disturbing! For you pilot types, the attention to detail, the cockpit, the preflight, the crew, pilots and flight attendants boarding the aircraft and making small talk was OH, so real and routine...just another day in the office! Likewise the...

    The American Enterprise ^ | June 2006 | Josh Larsen
    Media spin doctors have done their best to turn patriotism into a dirty word, yet even movie critics--some of the most agile redefiners of culture around--have been humbled by the true patriotism on display in United 93. Praise has been nearly unanimous for this painstaking recreation of United Flight 93, the one hijacked plane on 9/11 that didn't reach its target. And if the movie has been appreciated more for what it isn't--exploitative, inaccurate, sensational--those reviews still carry an unspoken acceptance of what it is: a testament to a group of ordinary Americans who became, in effect, the first foot...

The film was attended by families of some of the 40 passengers and crew who were killed when their plane crashed on September 11, 2001. First lady Laura Bush was also at the screening. Directed by the British film-maker Paul Greengrass, United 93 is a real-time drama based on the events surrounding the fourth plane to be hijacked, which was believed to have been brought down after members of the crew decided to storm the cabin. The film has been a surprise box office...
