...Too bad Cheney didn't "mobilize" the fighter pilots during the long, long period where the Pentagon & FAA tracked the incoming airliners.....instead, action was actually forbidden. This is a documented fact. Some day, we may learn the truth behind 9-11.

I am filled with emotion today - more than in past 9/11 anniversaries. I think it has to do with the hypocrisy, political correctness and double talk about Islam and Sharia. There are no Sharia countries where you would send your daughters. These Islamic regimes deserve no respect or special consideration. They still want to kill Christians and Jews given a chance. Never forgive or forget. No to the ground zero mosque.

Thank you IJ for this story

I remember that morning on the Larkspur ferry
Coming around Angel Island
Not knowing if we would be seeing a similar situation with planes flying into the BofA and Trans America buildings
We just didn't know what to expect
But I knew then that America would never be the same after that day

And it brought back memories of a young student sitting in science class on November 22, 1963 at Davidson, the clock read 11:45 AM precisely when the voice of the principal came on, thru the speaker next to the clock, telling us our President had been murdered

The Islamic extremists are looking forward to wreaking more havoc on our citizens, and our country.

They burn our bibles, flags, and torture our servicemen. The worst fear our servicemen have is being captured by these Allahfreaks.

There really is no possibility of peace with them. Take a look at the Qur'an. It pretty much says that any religion other than Islam is death.

I wish this weren't true.

So, what we do is spend billions of dollars pretending we have a workable solution. Spend more on planes, occupy their country and piss them off, or hire people to spy, train, and make some effort to prepare for their next attack.

Who was it that said, "never take a defensive position?"

Have a nice day :)

The 911 attacks were tragic. Most of the world still does not know the "truth" of the event. Many organizations such as Professors of the 911 Truth and Engeneers and Architects for the Truth beleive 911 was an inside job based on the science of the disaster. Engineering calculations and eye witnesses conclude the Twin Towers and Building 7 were taken down by implosions caused by planted explosives in the buildings. The perpetrators knew the general public would except the plan that 2 planes caused the fall of the structures and would not seek the truth. The planned attack would allow restrictions on citizens rights for the gain of a few.
What is the truth? Does the public really want to know or do they feel secure with the present story?

I predict that this thread will be ransacked by truthers and islamophobes. That's okay, because I enjoy a good laugh. If someone is immature and ignorant to the extent that they post such rubbish on a day of mourning, so be it.

Nothing but the Truth, I think you have some kind of inferiority complex. Nobody believes in your "truth" except for yourself. Stop spamming.

But Bob - who really was behind 911? Maybe Cheney knows. Maybe the CIA knows. Maybe China knows. Maybe the Mafia, big business, or the "Priviledged Society" know. Do the research, see the videos, do the math. Just plain common sense should lead all thinking people to realize there is so much more to the story. Or just believe what is handed to you. It's easy that way and does not disturb your Matrix position. The hatred and blame towards Islam and the location of a Mosque will not erase the tragedy. The truth may help to understand it.

The four comments above this one are people who were dropped on the head as infants. We need more nut-houses for people like yourselves. At least you loonies are the funny kind. Please do continue :)
