    At the awards ceremony after a hard-fought women's final on Saturday, runner-up Leylah Fernandez took a moment to address the resilience of New York on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. "I know on this day it's especially hard for New York and everyone around the US," Fernandez said. "I just want to say that I hope I can be as strong and resilient as New York has been the last 20 years." Editor's Picks Both the teenagers in the 2021 US Open women's singles finals were born after 9/11; Fernandez on September 6, 2002, and Emma Raducanu on November 13,...
  • Jacksonian America: The Sleeping Giant Awakened By 9/11

    19FortyFive ^ | 9/10/2021 | James Holmes (US Naval War College
    Jacksonians hew to bareknuckles realism. They hold that “international life is and will remain both anarchic and violent,” and thus that “the United States must be vigilant and strongly armed. Our diplomacy must be cunning, forceful and no more scrupulous than anybody else’s. At times, we must fight preemptive wars.” And Jacksonian sentiment perseveres over time when the community is convinced vital national interests are at stake, as in World War II, the Cold War, and Desert Storm. As a corollary, though, Jacksonians evince little interest in foreign enterprises undertaken for reasons not directly related to defending the national interest....

    Biden’s withdrawal of U.S. troops in August, months after a deadline set by his Republican predecessor, Donald Trump, and the resulting rapid fall of the country to the Taliban has drawn criticism from members of both political parties. Biden is not scheduled to deliver remarks at any of the sites...

  • America’s $8 Trillion Dollar 9/11 Response: A Historic Disaster

    19FortyFive ^ | 9/10/2021 | Ted Galen Carpenter
    Washington’s war on terror has cost some $8 trillion dollars and some 7,000 American lives, as well as thousands more maimed mentally or physically. The only significant beneficiaries appear to be U.S. defense contractors and Washington’s global rivals, especially China, who likely watched in disbelief as America wasted vast amounts of blood and treasure.

    19FortyFive ^ | 9/9/2021 | Salvatore Babones
    September 11, 2001 was a preventable tragedy in a long line of preventable tragedies. So was the disorganized withdrawal from Kabul, which could have been prevented if the Biden administration hadn’t put too much faith its evaluation of the durability of the Afghan government, and instead held onto Bagram as an insurance policy. Seven decades of preventable tragedies have taken a heavy toll on American lives, American treasure, and the American psyche. They have done little to change the structure of American power. There is no denying that 9/11 changed the lives of millions of people, mostly for the worse....

    President Joe Biden is doing the unthinkable. On the 20th anniversary of the dark day that terrorists struck New York City and Washington, D.C., he — more than any other world leader — is preparing the way for the next 9/11. Sept. 11, 2021, ought above all to be a day of remembrance, a reflection on loss, a homage to bravery, and a recommitment to our steely resolve to never let this happen again. And without question, the president will invoke that message at ceremonies in New York, Washington and Shanksville, Penn. What most of the world will pay attention...

    A man whose mother is a 9/11 victim ripped Rep. Ilhan Omar for describing the terror attacks as “some people did something” during the annual anniversary ceremony at Ground Zero on Wednesday. Nicholas Haros Jr., wearing a black T-shirt with the words “Some people did something?,” singled out the congresswoman and the other members of “the Squad” after reading the names of the dead, including his mother’s, Frances Haros, at the ceremony. “’Some people did something,’ said a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota,” said Haros in reference to Omar. Amid some applause, Haros continued, “Today I am here to respond to...

    Did We Learn Anything From 9/11? Or are we still sleeping? Wed Sep 11, 2019 Daniel Greenfield 114 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Two things happened in 2001. Islamic terrorists carried out their most successful attack on America with the murder of 2,977 people. And the number of immigrants obtaining permanent residency passed a million for the first time in a decade. Before 2001, a million plus was a streak that might linger for a few years before falling back. These...

    The Trump administration is planning to provide the identity of a Saudi official who allegedly helped the 9/11 hijackers to family members of victims of the terror attacks that occurred 18 years ago. The news was first reported by The Wall Street Journal on Thursday. The victims' family members have been pressuring the Trump administration to release the information. In a recent letter to President Trump, they called on him to "instruct Attorney General Barr not to invoke privileges and to give us the FBI documents so that we can finally learn the full truth and obtain justice from Saudi...

    The White House fired back after social media users criticized first lady Melania Trump over a coat she wore in a photo tweeted by President Trump on Wednesday to mark the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham, who previously worked with the first lady, told USA Today it was "ridiculous" that some Twitter users called the coat insensitive. Some Twitter users noted that the trim on the back of the first lady's coat appeared to resemble a skyscraper with a smaller object hovering nearby, which some said resembled the images of the World Trade...

    It's now been nearly a full generation since Sept. 11, 2001. There are people currently serving in the U.S. military who weren't born when that act of evil took place -- and the military still has thousands of troops in Afghanistan, the home base of the Taliban-supported al Qaida attack on the United States that took nearly 3,000 American lives. With time comes forgetfulness. The same period of time has now elapsed since Sept. 11 that elapsed between the end of World War I (1918) and the German re-occupation of the Rhineland in contravention of the Treaty of Versailles (1936)....

    It's been 18 years since 9/11. Children born on that tragic day are old enough to serve and fight in America's longest war. In New York City, there are 13 members of next graduating class from the Fire Academy who lost their fathers in the destruction of the World Trade Center, according to the New York Post. For many Americans there is an absence of memory about 9/11 -- but for others it persists because of the memory of absence.

    Newsbusters ^ | September 11, 2019 | Leah Barkoukis
    In an article published on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, The New York Times decided to blame airplanes for taking down the World Trade Center, completely ignoring that it was terrorists who hijacked those planes. “Eighteen years have passed since airplanes took aim at the World Trade Center and brought them down,” reads the second paragraph in the piece titled “Remembering Those Lost 18 Years Ago on 9/11.” In fact, terrorism isn’t even mentioned in the article, except for in the subheading. To make matters worse, this is the section the NYT tweeted to promote the...
