    A random act of nature unfolded Tuesday when the most regal of American symbols, a bald eagle, perched atop a fire truck during a Twin Cities Sept. 11 ceremony. The unscripted landing added to the moment on the Main Street overpass above Hwy. 10 in Coon Rapids, where firefighters from various departments were paying their annual tribute to those who died 17 years ago in the coordinated terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and to the emergency responders who rushed into harm’s way. “Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” on-the-scene Andover Fire Chief Jerry Streich said...

    Remember. Forget. Repeat. For 17 years, America has engaged in a collective ritual every Sept. 11: Hang flags, light candles, bow heads and make vows to "Never forget." Then, every Sept. 12, it's back to business as usual: See something, do nothing. Did you remember that five of the 9/11 hijackers -- Mohamed Atta, Marwan al-Shehhi, Hani Hanjour, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Satam al-Suqami -- carried out their killer plot after overstaying their visas, evading detection and avoiding deportation? Did you remember that other radical Muslim members of the Terrorist Visa Overstayers Club? They include 1997 New York subway bomber Lafi...

    Just about everyone remembers where they were when they found out about the attacks on 9/11/01. But too many Americans including too many of the leaders of the Democratic Party have forgotten the collective national pain, the reasons we were attacked, and desire a return to the appeasement that made the terrorists strong. We now have a President who believes that terrorism must be defeated, a welcome change from the previous eight years as under Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry, the U.S. government returned to the pre-9/11 mindset of treating terrorist acts as crimes, and the terrorists as...

    I first put this on Facebook. I figured I would add it here and ask you all what your memories of that day was. Not a 9/11 will ever go by without me shedding a tear over what happened. I was 15 in my history class at NLHS. Although I was in Ohio. I know nobody who was killed or hurt that day. It changed me forever. It got me interested in news and current events. I studied national security issues. I studied the kind of religion they practice in the middle east. It made me politically active. I had...
  • Flashback: The 5th plane to be seized on 9/11, and the terrorists who got away

    09/11/2018 5:02:54 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 70 replies
    Have you heard about the airliner which was ordered back to the gate on 9/11 when the terrorist attacks began, only to have four young Arab passengers jump off the plane, after which box cutters and Al Qaeda documents were found in their abandoned bags? I’ve heard that story before, but since it was never reported by the U.S. government, and not mentioned by the 9/11 Commission in their official report, I thought it might be another of those urban myths. Until now. Yesterday’s Wilmington (Delaware) News-Journal featured a front-page article on the Delaware Air National Guard’s first female general,...

    How progressives saw poetic justice in planes plunging into U.S. buildings packed with innocents. I will never forget how, seventeen years ago on this day, many of the leftists around me in my neighborhood and community had very little trouble expressing their glee about Al Qaeda' strike on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. I had known some of these leftists for years, and after the fall of the Soviet empire in 1989–91 many of them bitterly lamented to me that the “alternative to capitalism” was now gone. A significant number of them retreated into a silent and sullen shell....

    Today’s post is in honor of the nearly 3,000 Americans that were killed by terrorists on this date in 2001 and the four Americans that also lost their lives 11 years later in Benghazi, Libya. John D. Yamnicky Sr. graduated the U.S. Naval Academy in 1952, then flew attack planes during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. The 71-year-old native of Waldorf, Md. had retired as a captain in 1979, and was on a business trip for a defense contractor when American Airlines Flight 77 slammed into the Pentagon, killing all 64 aboard. Lt. Cmdr. Otis V. Tolbert Jr. was the...

    President Donald Trump spoke at the 9/11 memorial service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, recalling the attacks of September 11, 2001. Trump praised the valor of the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 for resisting the terrorists in control of the hijacked plane, which led to the crash in a Pennsylvania field. “At this memorial on this sacred earth in the field beyond this wall and in the skies above our heads, we remember the moment when America fought back,” Trump said, praising the Americans aboard the flight–“changed the course of history” by resisting the terrorists. Trump recognized...

    Not everyone on Twitter decided to mourn the lives lost on September 11, 2001, this year. Some took to the social media platform — which has supposedly dedicated itself to “conversational health” — to blame America for the terrorist attacks that day. Some Twitter users made posts claiming the United States of America “deserved” the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    For many years now, when I’ve looked at my digital clock, I’ve seen one time more than any other–9:11. Now there are a lot of possibilities on the clock. There are twelve hours, and there are sixty minutes. I’m no math guy, but isn’t that 1 in 720? The odds of seeing 9:11 more often than any other time are pretty high, I’d say...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday blasted President Trump for attacking him in a tweet on Sept. 11. Trump quoted Fox Business host Lou Dobbs in a tweet earlier Tuesday, writing, “‘ERIC Holder could be running the Justice Department right now and it would be behaving no differently than it is.’ @LouDobbs.” Holder responded in a tweet that Sept. 11 “is not a day for the usual unhinged Trump politics.” “This is a day to remember the innocent Americans we lost and the brave first responders who gave their lives,” Holder added. “They’re the best of America and we...
