On September 9, 2001, two days before the events of 9/11, Ahmad Shah Massoud- the “Lion of Panjsher” and leader of the United Islamic Front for the Salvation of Afghanistan (the Northern Alliance)- was assassinated in Takhar Province of Afghanistan by suspected al-Qaeda agents posing as journalists. Afghanistan in the shadow of Ahmad Shah Massoud:… Read more »

George Bush, 2001 And just catch the emotion with which Barack Obama reacts to the death of Steven Sotloff: We’ll “manage” ISIS. Yes
Londonistan’s Anjem Choudary: In an effort to justify the ongoing acts of aggression perpetrated by Jihadi IS militants, the fundamentalist Muslim and self-proclaimed Islamic scholar distinguishes between what he calls “pro-life terrorism” and terrorism which he claims is “against life.” “I think there is terrorism, which is pro-life and there is terrorism, which is against… Read more »
On Sept 12th, 2011, one day after the Benghazi attack that killed 4 Americans including our Ambassador, I wrote a post titled: Libya Attack Caused By Homemade Movie On 9/11? Give Me A Break Check it out but as you can tell from the title I didn’t buy the video excuse. I’m not trying to… Read more »
The Obama regime has made much of the assertion that “Core Al Qaeda” was not part of the Benghazi attacks on September 11, 2012. The State Department confirmed Wednesday that two Libyan groups reportedly set to be designated as terrorists took part in the Benghazi 9-11 anniversary attacks of 2012. But the Obama administration insists… Read more »

In wake of the terrorist attack Saturday that claimed 68 lives at the famous Nairobi shopping mall, and in wake of the 12th anniversary of 9/11, I revisited President Bush’s September 2001 speech to a Joint Session of Congress:
On his Facebook page:
We’re supposed to believe that the perpetrators of 9/11 hated us for our freedom and goodness. In fact, that crime was blowback for decades of US intervention in the Middle East. And the last thing we needed was the government’s response: more wars, a stepped-up police and surveillance state, and drones.
As a proud participant in the 2,996 Project I had written a memorial for one 9/11 victim, Aram Iskendarian, a few years ago. I’ve chosen one more that had not been memorialized yet: Jeffrey M. Palazzo Jeff was 33 the day he died on 9/11 running into the damaged towers rather than out. But this… Read more »
From USA Today:
Nearly 3,000 people killed. A nation’s collective psyche decimated. Two costly, protracted wars. And fallout affecting everything from air travel to privacy.
The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks left deep, lasting scars that will be acknowledged Wednesday in commemorations at Ground Zero in New York, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa., the sites where terrorists crashed four hijacked commercial airliners. But on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, there are signs of a gradual desensitization to the tragedy’s once-piercing wounds.
In 2006 I took part in the 2,996 project. A project to have bloggers remember an individual that died on that horrific day 12 years ago. I was assigned Aram Iskendarian. This is a repost of my tribute: (There are still many tributes to be written of those who died that day. I am choosing… Read more »
