    The Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | November 11, 2016 | Sam Carchidi
    In the days after Donald Trump's stunning presidential win over Hillary Clinton, Zdenek Gazda has been bombarded by phone calls and texts, telling him he changed the election. He doesn't disagree with them. Gazda is a freelance photographer from New Jersey who filmed the video of Clinton after she became ill and stumbled at a campaign event two months ago. "People say to me that it showed she's not strong," Gazda said on Friday. "If I wasn't there, nobody would have known what happened....People need to know the truth..." Gazda, who had made more than $100,000 for his famous 20-second...

    At a recent stop in Worcester, Massachusetts, this week, Kiss brought its roadie for the day onstage, along with other members of the military past and present, and led the entire arena in the Pledge of Allegiance, something the band has done before. However, this one had a bit of a special message to a particular NFL player -- a not-so-subtle knock to the recent shenanigans by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, lead singer Paul Stanley said: “You should remember, patriotism is always cool. Loving your country is always cool. Standing up, respecting and honoring our military is always...

    Will America have to suffer an even more catastrophic attack: nuclear, chemical or biological before we finally batten down the hatches, pull out all the stops and do whatever it takes to truly keep this nation safe? We know ISIS and the other radical Islamic crazies constantly attempt to insert operatives into America. In spite of this, our president wants to allow thousands of refugees into America, which we have already been told by ISIS will contain terrorists, and he even refuses to properly identify our blood enemy. Have we learned our lesson? Some of us have. But apparently, some...

    Seattle’s full team interlocked arms and stood on the sideline. “Unity,” was their idea. Unity of a team asking for a more unified community. Cornerback Jeremy Lane, who took a knee during Seattle’s game last week, joined the team in locked arms. So the players agreed to act like a team with one voice here. On the Dolphins, four players - Arian Foster, Kenny Stills, Michael Thomas and Jelani Jenkins - stood during a ceremony for the 9-11 victims on Sunday’s 15th anniversary. They then dropped to a knee at the start of the anthem. The rest of the team...

Our intelligence officers and diplomats have risked their lives in service to the country. The problem is not with the sincerity, the courage, the energy or the effort of individual Americans. The problem has been the approach of a bipartisan Washington political elite that has squandered 15 years, thousands of lives, many thousands wounded, and trillions of dollars with no coherent strategy, no honest assessment of the challenge, and no...

Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz paid their respects to the victims of 9/11 on Sunday by wearing the patriotic commemorative cleats as the Giants took on the Cowboys in Dallas — despite NFL warnings that players would be fined for wearing the un-sanctioned footwear. Beckham’s special cleats were red, white and blue and emblazoned with the bust of a bald eagle.

    I lived in the closest residence to the World Trade Center (Gateway Plaza), which was immediately deemed a crime scene after the terrorist attack. An entire wall was blown off my workplace high-rise building. I ran for my life, jumped onto a Coast Guard rescue ferry and made my way to the home of strangers in New Jersey, who were kind enough to take me in. I was homeless for two months. My office was closed and displaced for eight months. It took years to recover from the trauma of 9/11, and yet, I was one of the more fortunate...

    One of the untold stories of 9/11 has been a comprehensive telling of what it was like for the President, his staff, the Secret Service, members of the military, guests and the traveling press corps who were aboard Air Force One that day. Bits and pieces have come out. For example, Chief of Staff Andrew Card talked at some length about being caught in the middle of President Bush's insistence he return to Washington, DC and the Secret Service's insistence that either the sky or the hardened bunkers at U.S. Strategic Command outside Omaha were the safest place for him...

    From the earliest days after the 9/11 attacks, the American establishment have showed an overwhelming reluctance to dwell on those who jumped or fell from the Twin Towers. Unofficial estimates put the number of jumpers at around 200, but it is impossible to say for certain because their bodies were indistinguishable from others after the collapse of the Towers. As part of its research into where the fire was at its most intense, NIST analysed camera footage and still photographs, and counted 104 jumpers, often recording the floor and exact window from which they left. All but three leapt from...

New York Giants receivers Odell Beckham and Victor Cruz are expected to wear similar shoes. Other players, including Atlanta's Julio Jones, already wore similar cleats during warms-ups.

    We all remember September 11th as the day the Twin Towers fell. But you may have noticed the other Islamic terror attacks have been on this same date. The French railway bombing, as well as the Benghazi attack. I think there are more that I can't remember right now. The 11th of September is a very important date to Islam. It was on September 11th of 1683 that the Ottomans were defeated at the Battle of Vienna. (For the second time, first time in 1529.) This was as far as Islam ever reached into Europe, and they are still PO'ed...

    When Heather Penney entered the cockpit of her F-16 fighter jet on Sept. 11, 2001, she knew it was unlikely she would ever survive. Her task? Take down the United Airlines Flight 93 that was unaccounted for after two planes struck the Twin Towers. She would have to do so in an unarmed fighter jet because equipping the plane with missiles would require too much time. Her plane would be the weapon; it was essentially a suicide mission. Penney never completed the job, though, because Flight 93 crashed as brave passengers wrestled control from the hijackers while it flew over...

    The National Football League is bracing for possible widespread player demonstrations during the national anthem at Sunday’s opening games, in what would mark a high-profile escalation of a protest movement over concerns of racial injustice in America. The games fall on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, which the NFL plans to commemorate with appearances by military personnel, first responders and two U.S. presidents. That backdrop could further animate a fierce national debate set off last month by quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the anthem. Officials with the NFL Players Association, who have been...

    The anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks weighs heavily on the minds of Minnesota Muslims as they prepare to celebrate one of the most important holy days of the year. For weeks they had worried that Monday’s Eid al-Adha, which marks the end of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, might fall on the 9/11 anniversary. Though the sighting of the moon placed this year’s Eid on Sept. 12, the proximity of a major holiday and a painful anniversary has fueled anxiety and led community leaders and local law enforcement to tighten security measures for Eid celebrations. “There has been...

More than 3,000 people died in coordinated attacks by Islamist terrorists who hijacked airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and would have crashed into the Capitol or some other iconic edifice but for the heroes who forced the terrorists to crash United Flight 93 into a field in Pennsylvania.

    From a psychological standpoint, it is necessary and important to “forget” grief with the passage of time. Anyone who has ever lost a loved one would not wish to bear the fresh agony day after day, year after year, without the merciful blunting of anguish that comes with distance. But unlike the pain of losing a loved one, where eventually the agony of loss is replaced with loving memories of his or her virtues, America is forgetting the pain of 9/11 and replacing it with something far worse. We are inviting a repeat of the trauma. You see, the world...

    Two-thousand nine-hundred and seventy-seven people were murdered 15 years ago today on September 11, 2001. In succession, two planes attacked the Twin Towers. A third plane smashed into the Pentagon. A fourth plane which was supposedly headed for the Capitol Building or the White House was intercepted by heroic passengers. Fifteen years later, America's response to the attacks is still lacking and in many cases amateurish to say the least. In each case below - immigration, intelligence, and militarily - successive administrations, and particularly Obama's, have exactly reversed the policies required to win the war against and eradicate "radical Islam."...

    Fifteen years after the carnage of 9/11, American foreign policy is still mired in its fossilized dogmas and dangerous delusions. The consequences are obvious. Iran, the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism and long an avowed enemy of the United States, has filled the vacuum of our ignominious retreat from the Middle East, even as the mullahs move ever closer to possessing nuclear weapons. Russia, Iran’s improbable ally, bombs civilians in Syria, kills the Syrian fighters we have trained, bullies its neighbor Ukraine, consolidates its take-over of the Crimea, and relentlessly pursues its interests with disregard for international law and...

    President Obama and Hillary Clinton aren’t the only ones having trouble identifying the religion of certain Middle Eastern descended terrorists. At least one Muslim group wants the words “Islamic terrorists” entirely scrubbed from a new Owego, NY 9-11 memorial created to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the attack. The Islamic Organization of Southern Tier, a New York state based Muslim activist group, told KTRK-TV that the words unfairly paint all Muslims with the same brush. Believing the “inflammatory” language could lead to anti-Muslim violence, the group would like the word “Islamic” scrubbed entirely, or even replaced with the words “Al...

A Wal-Mart store in Panama City Beach, Florida, was called out on social media for a tacky display that included stacks of soft drinks built to resemble the Twin Towers with a message that read: “We Will Never Forget.” The soda was on sale for $3.33.

    As an FBI agent who specialized in counter-terrorism, John P. O’Neill investigated the bombing of the American embassies in Africa, the USS Cole in Yemen, the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, and the first attack on the World Trade Center. O’Neill came to believe America should kill Osama bin Laden before Al Qaeda launched a devastating attack, but his was often a lonely voice. A controversial figure inside the buttoned-down world of the FBI, he was forced out of the job he loved and entered the private sector – as director of security for the World Trade Center.
