We must never forget or allow ourselves to be duped by leftists with an agenda
The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, were the deadliest attacks on U.S. soil since the December 7, 1941 Japanese stealth “kamikaze” bombing attack of our Pacific fleet in Pearl Harbor that launched the United States into World War II.
Twenty years ago today, on a clear autumn morning at 8:46 a.m. (ET) 2,973 people were murdered by 19 Muslim fundamentalist Al-Qaeda terrorists (photos) who commandeered two commercial airliners and, like their kamikaze predecessors, flew them into the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City and a third into the Pentagon, incinerating traveling passengers and themselves as they massacred innocent workers. The death toll includes 40 passengers and crew members aboard the fourth hijacked plane, United 93, which crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, as courageous passengers stormed the cockpit which had been taken over by the terrorists. Many of them, here on over-stayed student visas, had taken flight training in Arizona to prepare them for their deadly mission.
This is the live 9/11/01 footage from ‘The Today Show’ on NBC as the massacre initially unfolded on air in the early morning hours. (Timeline is available here via Wikipedia.) The show begins with a perfunctory interview about Howard Hughes (which can be scrolled past) when harsh realities eclipsed the chatter. (The clip contains commercials, which can also be bypassed.)
In 2009, just a few short years after the murderous attacks, The American Spectator wrote “Obama’s plan to desecrate 9/11,” by re-branding and sanitizing it into a “National Day of Volunteerism,” obliterating any connection to Muslim murderous hijackers.
Barack Obama’s then-Vice President Joe Biden, is now sitting in the White House and has capitulated to the very terrorist organization that was instrumental in the vicious September 11, 2001 attacks, as he recently launched what can only be called a chaotic and ill-conceived full-scale retreat, while abandoning hundreds of Americans and allies stranded in Afghanistan. Yet Biden has declared victory. He has done so while leaving the Taliban armed with sophisticated U.S. military equipment and what has been described as more Blackhawk helicopters than the nation of Australia has in its arsenal.
Despite the leftist administration’s desire for contrasting optics — that resulted in the deaths of 13 American service members — as incompetent Biden’s handlers coordinated a hasty withdrawal — Americans should never forget or obscure what this day commemorates.
