Steve’s post below is a must read. A must. The video is supplemental. Never forget. Never
This video is amature video shot from street level
This last video is not for the faint of heart. It is a heartbreaking 9-11 call from a workers in the World Trade Center, Kevin Cosgrove. He is on the phone as the building collapses around him. They were real people, with real families who died that day. God Bless them and keep them close.
Update: Then there is this … from our friend and frequent guest Col. Ralph Peters
Eight years ago today, our homeland was attacked by fanatical Muslims inspired by Saudi Arabian bigotry. Three thousand American citizens and residents died.
We resolved that we, the People, would never forget. Then we forgot.
We’ve learned nothing.
Instead of cracking down on Islamist extremism, we’ve excused it.
Instead of killing terrorists, we free them.
Instead of relentlessly hunting Islamist madmen, we seek to appease them.
Instead of acknowledging that radical Islam is the problem, we elected a president who blames America, whose idea of freedom is the right for women to suffer in silence behind a veil — and who counts among his mentors and friends those who damn our country or believe that our own government staged the tragedy of September 11, 2001.
It’s worth reading.
