  • A year later, hope dissolves into disappointment

    A year ago, on an Inauguration Day like no other, Barack Obama placed his hand upon the Lincoln Bible and then assured a weary nation that, with hope and virtue, we could "brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come." Across the country, in Seattle, Glen Boyd had only just entered his own economic storm. A couple of weeks out of work as a DIRECTV salesman, the Obama supporter nevertheless watched the inauguration on TV with a kind of goose-pimply, things-are-bound-to-get-better anticipation. He really felt it, that thing which the poet Alexander Pope said springs eternal....

    Mark Danner: Blaming America for the Global JihadBy Robert | October 10, 2005 The New York Times marked the fourth anniversary of 9/11 by publishing in the New York Times Magazine a long and lavish cover story by the  Mark Danner, a journalism professor at the University of California at Berkeley, author of  Torture and Truth: America, Abu Ghraib and the War on Terror, and a longtime opponent of America wars against totalitarian enemies. Danner didn’t write anything for the anniversary that would cancel dinner invitations for him in Berkeley. Instead, he repeated the radical line he has adopted for...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 7, 2005 – Four years ago today, America launched its counterattack against terrorism, hammering terrorist targets in Afghanistan and ushering in Operation Enduring Freedom and the global war on terror. That volley, launched Oct. 7, 2001, targeted far more than al Qaeda training camps and facilities and the repressive Taliban regime in Afghanistan, President Bush noted in announcing the attacks during a White House address. It sent an unmistakable message to terrorist organizations worldwide that the United States and its coalition partners refuse to live under a cloud of fear and intimidation, he said. Bush emphasized that the...

    Four years ago, when the first Qantas jet flew into New York after the September 11 terrorist attacks, you could see out the window the huge plume of thick smoke still billowing from the hole where the twin towers of the World Trade Centre had been. The sky was blue, the weather balmy, and the air smelled of death. Last week it was wet and windy when I went again to Ground Zero. The six-hectare site is orderly now, but oddly quiet. The base of the four-storey deep crater is lined with orange safety cones. Around the perimeter fence are...

    BAYONNE (NEW JERSEY), September 16 (Itar-Tass) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin laid a stone into the foundation of a monument to the victims of September 11, 2001 terrorist acts. The ceremony took place on Thursday in the town of Bayonne on the Hudson River. The stone bears a sign reading: “A gift from the Russian people. President Vladimir Putin. A monument will be erected here devoted to the fight against international terrorism. The work by sculptor Zurab Tsereteli”. The 30-meter high monument will be erected in front of lower Manhattan where the World Trade Center twins stood. The broken bronze...

    Earlier this week we discussed the 9/11 Anniversary and one writer mentioned that Google had not placed a logo or identifying symbol on their opening page. I wrote an e-mail and received a reply. I just sent an e-mail in return reminding them that I will not forgot to look next year to see what they have "come up with", and as far as "hurt feelings" of the international commuity, I thought Google was still a U.S. corporation. In addition there were lives from other nations lost in that tragedy. A logo needn't be their "only answer" in opting to...

    Early Sunday morning, I sat down to write my column. As I typed “September,” the computer prompted me with the date. September 11, 2005. My stomach dropped. I hadn't remembered. But all of a sudden, there it was, staring me in the face, hovering over the otherwise blank page. In a flash, it all came back to me. I could barely sleep for the flood of memories. I realized how long it had been since I'd thought of 9/11. Reference to it would pass before me from time to time, but I hadn't remembered it. Shortly after September 11, news...

    Lest we forget the meaning of 9-11 14.SEP.05 Have you forgotten? As our great country was attacked, America came together as a true united states. We took the fight to Afghanistan and then trimmed the Al Qaida monster to nothing in Iraq, establishing a democratic government in both countries and exposing them to the life of the free. There is nothing that terrorists hate more than the free helping others to be free. Well, Mr. Terrorist, nice try but you have failed. How does it feel to meet the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and the hardened American citizen...

    Photo doctored for Islamic correctness CAIR 'covers' bareheaded woman with Muslim hijab Posted: September 16, 20051:00 a.m. Eastern © 2005 The controversial Muslim lobby group Council on American-Islamic Relations doctored a photograph on its website to ensure a woman was shown wearing a customary Islamic headcovering. Using photo-editing software, a depiction of a Muslim hijab was drawn crudely around the bareheaded woman's face, noted the weblog Jihad Watch. CAIR removed the doctored photo from its front page after Jihad Watch drew attention to it yesterday. The original image can be seen now among the group's press releases. By comparison, the backs...

    Many readers will have watched the recent production on The Discovery Channel of “The Flight that Fought Back,” a dramatization of the events that occurred on September 11, 2001, aboard Flight 93. Using a wide variety of tapes and personal interviews, the producers recreated a harrowing scenario of what happened aboard the hijacked flight as it was speeding towards Washington, DC, at nearly 600 mph, controlled by four of the Middle East’s finest Islamic homicidal lunatics. The presentation was shown without interruption and was gripping from beginning to end. The survivors of those killed that day are to be thanked...

    Four years ago to this day, United Airlines Flight 93 was flying over unremarkable farmland near Somerset, Pennsylvania. Inside the plane there was chaos, as the passengers started to organize their legendary resistance. “Let’s Roll,” said Todd Beamer, as he and his fellows charged into the cockpit of the enormous jet. Here is where they and the other passengers are now resting forever. This is not a political memorial. I see no racism, no attacks on Islam, just a moving tribute to a much-beloved group of people. There has been a great controversy about the idea of a permanent memorial,...

    The architect of the memorial to a plane downed in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001, said Wednesday he would work to satisfy critics who complained that it honors terrorists with its crescent-shaped design. Designer Paul Murdoch said he is "somewhat optimistic" that the spirit of the design could be maintained. "It's a disappointment there is a misinterpretation and a simplistic distortion of this, but if that is a public concern, than that is something we will look to resolve in a way that keeps the essential qualities," Murdoch, 48, of Los Angeles, said in a telephone interview. Murdoch's design, "Crescent...

    The left is massing for their huge anti-war protest in Washington, DC, on September the 24th. This isn't about Cindy Sheehan. Led by the communist supported International A.N.S.W.E.R. group, the left believes this one massive protest will deliver a Vietnam style knockout blow to our president and the war effort. This is their big "Vietnam war" protest of the current generation. Do not allow this group of America-hating hippies and misfits win the day for the terrorists. Do not allow them to destroy public support for the war as they did in the 60's. Do not allow them to demoralize...

    Please forgive any errors. Rush is about to discuss her remarks in the next segment. Wanted to add the ping. [The following is just my 2 Cents] Yesterday was no ordinary day. It was the fourth anniversary of 9-11-01. A day for reverence. A day to ponder infamy. A day to remember the victims families. And a day to honor America's heroes. Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu made an outrageous remark on the fourth anniversary date of 9-11-01. I AX this question: did she insult 9-11-01 heroes on the fourth anniversary of 9-11-01? Yesterday, Sunday, she said, "Mayor Nagin and most...

    It is thus not surprising to see former Marxists join the ranks of Islamic radicals This is a deviation from Islam proper. Radicals see Islam as a force to lead "enslaved" nations against "ruling" ones. The Koran, however, presents Islam as a way to lead all humans to God's path.
