    Video posted on YouTube 4 days ago shows footage of the plane hitting the second WTC tower. It’s footage that will be very difficult for some of the dumber conspiratards to explain.

    We usually associate anniversaries with happy occasions: the date of the start of a romance, a wedding, the birth of a company or country. Celebrations abound — parties, dances, company picnics, bands, parades, fireworks, specialty cocktails, and special cakes. Then there are the other events — the death of a loved one, an accident, corporate bankruptcy, natural disasters such as hurricanes. These events are seared in our hearts, annually marked, not with jubilation, but with longing, sadness, even despair. Eclipsing both ends of this emotional spectrum are the catastrophic events that bind not just a family or a company, or...
  • A Facebook documentary rewrites 9/11

    Technically speaking, the documentary is about the National September 11 Museum at the World Trade Center, but its real message is clear. As we approach the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, the effort by much of our cultural elite to rewrite history, which started on September 12, continues ever on. The point is to distract from the attacks carried out by the non-western, non-Judeo-Christian, non-democratic terrorists, and impart the message that nothing has changed: America is still the bad guy, same as it ever was. The latest effort concerns the Facebook documentary The Outsider, by filmmakers Steven Rosenbaum and Pamela Yoder,...

    This piece is co-authored with Mr. Jimmy Greene and Mr. Allen West.Since our founding in 1776, the United States or her territories have been attacked 16 times before September 11, 2001. Unlike military attacks by foreign powers in 1812 (Great Britain) and 1941 (Japan), September 11, 2001 was an attack on the United States by terrorists; not a foreign country but a group of 19 radical individuals from four countries that took exception with America's free, open and inclusive society. WHY THEY ATTACKED USAmerica stood for the promise of inalienable rights for all…for life, liberty, private property and the pursuit...
  • Secret pre-9/11 report:‘widespread’ Al Qaeda sleeper cells in America that CIA, FBI were ill-equipped to counter

    FloridaBulldog.org ^ | 08 Sept 2021 | Robbyn Swan
    A long-secret report, written 18 months before 9/11 by senior members of President Clinton’s national security team, concluded that U.S. intelligence were failing in their attempts to break al Qaeda, and warned that agencies were not structured or adequately funded to meet the threat posed by Osama bin Laden.U.S. counterterrorism policy, the team judged, required “immediate revision,” and laid out a series of recommendations – some “time-critical”– needed to stop future al Qaeda attacks on U.S. interests. By Sept. 11, 2001, though, key recommendations had still not been acted upon.The report, known as the Millennium Alert After Action Review (MAAR),...

    President Joe Biden’s incompetent withdrawal and evacuation of US Armed Forces from Afghanistan has been a dismal failure causing America to be seen as an international embarrassment on the world stage. President Biden conducted his poorly planned withdrawal with little to no consultation and planning with our NATO Allies. Our NATO Allies were there to support America when she was attacked on September 11, 2001, yet they were shortchanged by Biden’s hasty retreat. President Biden also sullies the memories of all of those who died and sacrificed during the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent military actions to overthrow and neutralize...

    A former Osama bin Laden henchman convicted in two deadly 1998 bombings is free and living in the UK this week after being released early — thanks to a Manhattan federal judge who agreed the terrorist was way too obese to survive the coronavirus behind bars.Adel Abdel Bary, 60, had spent 21 years in a New Jersey prison for his role in the 1998 al Qaeda bombings of two US embassies in Africa that killed 224 people, including 12 Americans.“Defendant’s obesity and somewhat advanced age make COVID-19 significantly more risky to him than to the average person,” US District Judge...

    The Clinton, Bush, and Trump families will forever be intertwined in not just American history, but the history of the world. The past several years have certainly seen a major change in what once seemed to be a warm relationship between the Trumps and the Clintons, two elite New York clans inhabiting similar circles that have now become the political equivalent of the Hatfields and McCoys. To a lesser extent, because they never seemed particularly close, the same can be said about the Trump and Bush families as well. We also all remember prior to his being nominated as the...

    The FBI agent who led the post 9/11 investigation of Saudis who moved out of their Sarasota-area home under suspicious circumstances two weeks before the 2001 al Qaeda attacks urged the FBI to seek information from the CIA about whether they assisted the terrorist hijackers. That’s among the final disclosures the FBI made recently to conclude a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit brought by Florida Bulldog in 2012 seeking records of a bureau investigation that was once so secret its existence was withheld from both Congress and the 9/11 Commission. News that the FBI agent who led the probe...

    Maybe it is because I feel as if I owe my life to the brave passengers on United Flight 93 — if indeed that plane-turned-weapon was directed towards the U.S. Capitol. Or maybe it is because for my friends from Sudan/South Sudan, both Christian and Muslim, “9/11 was 24/7…and 365.” After all, I was at the Rayburn House Office Building that morning, waiting to begin a press conference on why there should be capital market sanctions against companies that did business with the Islamic Republic of Sudan because of Sudan’s connections to terrorism. Terrorism! Hah! We didn’t have a CLUE...

    A military judge on Friday set Jan. 11, 2021, as the start of the joint death-penalty trial at Guantánamo Bay of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and four men charged with plotting the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that killed 2,976 people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. The date .... is the first time that a trial judge in the case actually set a start-of-trial date, despite requests by prosecutors since 2012... If the 2021 timeline holds, jury selection would start eight months before the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. One major issue the judge has yet to resolve is...

    A 2021 date has been established for the death-penalty trial of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and four other men charged as the masterminds behind the September 11 attack in New York City. Colonel W. Shane Cohen of the Air Force announced on Friday that the trial is set for January 11, 2021. The case will take place at Camp Justice at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. Cohen set the date so that a military jury could be selected, the New York Times reports.

    A sculpture celebrating Saudi Arabia’s place in the G20 Summit was erected on the World Trade Center grounds last week, a stone’s throw away from the 9/11 memorial. Shaped to resemble a piece of candy, the nine-foot-tall statue bears the Kingdom’s emerald flag emblazoned with the Arabic inscription, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet.” It was created by French sculptor Laurence Jenkell in 2011 as part of the larger installation “Candy Nation” which depicts G20 countries as sugary delights, and has since been featured in over 25 countries. All 20 sculptures are currently on display...

    Independent Sentinel ^ | 01/10/2019 | S.Noble
    A nine foot sculpture has risen on the site of the World Trade Center terror attack of 9/11 in New York. It’s a Saudi Arabian candy monument inscribed with the words, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet.” Those are the same words used by the 9/11 terrorists who blew up the Twin Towers at that site. Most of the terrorists were Saudis and the government itself has been implicated at high levels. The Saudi monument is one of the statues representing the 20 nations — the G20 — that artist Laurence Jenkell thought appropriate for...

    A New York City subway station has reopened for the first time since it was destroyed 17 years ago in the 11 September 2001 terrorist attack. Cortlandt Street on the 1 line was buried under debris when the two World Trade Center towers collapsed after hijackers crashed planes into them. On Saturday, people were welcomed into the newly renamed WTC Cortlandt station as the first train rolled in at midday.

    A New York City firefighter, who heroically aided in the evacuation of hundreds of people in Lower Manhattan on Sept. 11, 2001 as the deadliest terror attack in U.S. history unfolded, has died. Thomas Phelan, 45, of Brooklyn, died on Friday, according to the Uniformed Firefighters Association of Greater New York. Phelan, family and friends told the New York Daily News, died from cancer linked to the toxic fumes at Ground Zero. He is one of more than 170 firefighters who have died as a result of an illness related to the attacks at the World Trade Center in 2001,...

    A former inspector for the federal government now diagnosed with a terminal 9/11 illness is battling with the Labor Department for his workers’ compensation benefit.  Dale Henderson, 59, was a compliance inspector with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration on 9/11.  He’s been diagnosed by government doctors with interstitial lung disease — one of several illnesses linked to exposure to hazardous materials on 9/11 or at Ground Zero.  Henderson’s 9/11 illness was acknowledged by the World Trade Center Victims Compensation Fund — which awarded him a $300,000 payout when he first got sick.9/11 asbestos debris lawsuits cleared by N.Y....
