    Now UNC Chapel Hill has hit a new low with a 9/11 literature class in which students will read the poems of Al Qaeda terrorists rather than 9/11 survivors and the children of 9/11 victims. An English class offered at UNC Chapel Hill this fall called “Literature of 9/11” explores the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks from the perspective of radical Islamists and those who view America as an imperialist nation. The readings mostly focus on justifying the actions of terrorists – painting them as fighting against an American regime, or mistaken idealists, or good people just trying to do what they deem...

    It's the last place any patriotic American should be on 9/11. This is like spending Victory in Europe Day dressing up in Nazi uniforms or Pearl Harbor Day playing kamikaze. But it's business as usual for the Democratic Party, which does treason like it's going out of style.First up is a very special 9/11 party with ISNA over in Lansing as the Islamic Society of Greater Lansing throws its 9th Annual Mayor’s Ramadan Unity Dinner hosted by two Dems, Mayor Virg Bernero and Nathan Triplett, as Creeping Sharia reports.

She survived that day, getting out before both towers of the trade center crumbled and killed 2,753 people in the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. But the woman in the photos, known to most as the "Dust Lady," died Tuesday, her family said. Marcy Borders was 42.

The original scene, where Chandler makes a joke about bombs at airport security, was actually going to air on October 11, 2001 but was removed after 9/11 “due to material that could be considered insensitive” according to a note that plays before the deleted scene. The clip was initially uploaded in 2007, but has reemerged this week online and is being widely...

As it happens, the reactions of the two presidents were surprisingly similar within their contemporaneous context. Vlad Tepes has ferreted out some rare footage from old newsreel archives that shows the longer version of FDR’s address to Congress on the day after the surprise attack by Japan. The first part of the president’s speech will be familiar to most readers, but the rest of his address is not as well known:...

    When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others. While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I'm talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600, which included the Ottoman Empire and the courts of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo, and enlightened rulers like Suleiman the Magnificent.

Christie was confirmed and began work as New Jersey's top prosecutor in January 2002.

Sandy Berger, who gained notoriety when he stole classified documents from the National Archives prior to testimony before the 9/11 Commission, had Hillary Clinton's personal email address and emailed her about Israel, Pakistan and terrorism in 2009.

The prosecutor's office said only that the 22-year-old man is a Muslim of Moroccan ancestry, but did not release his name. He recorded a farewell message to his family on an audio cassette and was "presumably recruited and prepared to be sent out to die in international 'jihad,' or armed struggle against 'enemies of Islam,'" according to a statement by prosecutors. A second man was detained but later released, it said. The two were picked up in the southern city...

Yemeni national Ramzi Binalshibh, who is now in prison in the United States, met with the director of a Dutch flying school, who advised him to take lessons in the US because it was less expensive there. The pilot of the second plane to crash into the World Trade Centre also spent some time in the Netherlands. He is believed to have participated in Islamic seminars in Eindhoven.

The book, “The Next Wave,” by Fox News national security reporter, Catherine Herridge, reveals new documents that find Mr. Awlaki was nearly arrested after the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon for providing false information on his passport application. Today Mr. Awlaki is one of the leaders of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Mr. Awlaki is also the only known American citizen on a...

    Americans ‘overreacted’ to the 9/11 attacks, according to the newly appointed first female vice-chancellor of Oxford University. Terrorism expert Professor Louise Richardson said the 2001 atrocity provoked such a response because violent extremism was a ‘new experience’ in the US. Widespread panic ensued in America after al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger airliners and flew them into buildings, causing almost 3,000 deaths. In contrast, British citizens have shown themselves to be more ‘resilient’ in the face of terror when dealing with violence during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, she said.

    Betrayal: Another Obama amnesty program is well underway — at Guantanamo, where three dangerous al-Qaida operatives have quietly been OK´d for release in three months. And now a close aide to the 9/11 mastermind is also on tap for release. After already freeing an al-Qaida bomb maker last month — over the objections of U.S. intelligence, which warned, "He would be capable of re-engaging as an explosives expert or trainer" — the parole board that Obama set up to clear out Gitmo is now poised to rubber-stamp for release a close associate of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Gitmo´s so-called Periodic Review

    Terror group ISIS has released an 11-minute long video where it warns the United States of another 9/11-style attack. The militants said that America's geographical location won't bring it the safety it perceives to have, and warned that an "army of Jihad" is coming. The Independent noted that the video, titled "We Will Burn America," is not the first of its kind – in January, the group warned to beheaded President Barack Obama and turn America into a Muslim province. ISIS has captured significant territory in Iraq and Syria and has looked to expand its Islamic caliphate across the region....

    The episode could have been a chapter from the thriller written by former Senator Bob Graham of Florida about a shadowy Saudi role in the Sept. 11 attacks. A top F.B.I. official unexpectedly arranges a meeting at Dulles International Airport outside Washington with Mr. Graham, the former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, after he has pressed for information on a bureau terrorism inquiry. Mr. Graham, a Democrat, is then hustled off to a clandestine location, where he hopes for a breakthrough in his long pursuit of ties between leading Saudis and the Sept. 11 hijackers. This real-life encounter happened...

    Senator: At Least One Foreign Country Assisted the 9/11 Terrorists Senator Graham knows where the bodies are buried>>> On 11 December 2002, the Senate and House Intelligence Committees released portions of their joint report on intelligence failures regarding the September 11 terrorist attacks. The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, on PBS, reported on the release that day. After asking her guests a bunch of predictable questions, and receiving predictable answers, guest host Gwen Ifill asked Senator Bob Graham, Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, a good question and got an amazing answer. GWEN IFILL: Senator Graham, are there elements...

    September 6, 2004 -- WASHINGTON — The long knives are out for Democrat John Kerry's campaign manager, Mary Beth Cahill, as infighting rages while his slumping campaign struggles to come back against President Bush. "You'd think they could find a man to throw overboard one of these days," zinged Republican strategist Mary Matalin, a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney on NBC's "Meet the Press." She said Democrats blamed 1988 loser Michael Dukakis' stumbles on campaign manager Susan Estrich and Al Gore's 2000 fumbles on campaign chief Donna Brazile, and "now they're trying to blame poor Mary Beth Cahill"...

    PITTSBURGH, Sept. 5 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Sen. John Kerry released the following statement today on allegations made in Sen. Bob Graham's (D-Fla.) new book: "Sen. Graham is a respected member of the United States Senate and a former chairman of the Intelligence Committee. These are serious allegations being made by a well respected and informed leader. If the White House and the FBI did in fact block an investigation into the ties between the Saudi government and the 9- 11 hijackers, then this would be a massive abuse of power. We need an independent investigation into these allegations immediately to...

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Christine Iverson202-863-8614Washington, DC—RNC Communications Director Jim Dyke released the following statement regarding Senator Bob Graham’s conference call today for the Kerry Campaign. “Senator Graham is right. Intelligence does matter. That's why it's so troubling that John Kerry did not bother to show up for 76 percent of his Senate Intelligence Committee hearings. The Kerry campaign says the percentage would change if non-public committee hearings were included but refuses to release the records” “However, we know Senator Graham keeps notebooks which are obsessive in their attention to detail.

    Just 15 days before the 9/11 attacks, a well-connected Saudi family suddenly abandoned their luxury home in Sarasota, Fla., leaving behind jewelry, clothes, opulent furniture, a driveway full of cars — including a brand new Chrysler PT Cruiser — and even a refrigerator full of food. About the only thing not left behind was a forwarding address. The occupants simply vanished without notifying their neighbors, realtor or even mail carrier. The 3,300-square-foot home on Escondito Circle belonged to Esam Ghazzawi, a Saudi adviser to the nephew of then-King Fahd. But at the time, it was occupied by his daughter and...
