Never Forget, Never Forgive

The most horrific attack in our country’s history occurred sixteen years ago today, when Islamist terrorists flew three airliners into the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon, respectively.

The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,997 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage.

Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines)—all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California—were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City.

Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, leading to a partial collapse of the building’s western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, initially was steered toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers.

9/11 was the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed respectively.

Sixteen years after the slaughters, American leftists are more concerned with alleged Islamophobia and less concerned with the terrorists who still want us all dead.

  1. I’ve said it a 1,000 times before and I will say it a 1,000 times again. Lefties are mentally ill. Pretty much everything they believe in flies directly into the face of reality.
    Anyone with even a nodding acquaintance of actual history knows full well that Islam is the most violent and intolerant religion in the world And Always Has Been!! Religion of Peace My A$$!!

  2. I was working for RSM McGladrey at the time and we were in the break room looking at the TV when the 2nd plane hit the tower. When I wondered aloud if it was bin Laden, my manager told me I had been watching too much FOX news. I’m sure he is just as clueless today. It’s them OR us but they don’t have any intention of co-existing.

  3. Metoo – No, “COEXIST” is a liberal trait, and to Muslims, it is a sign of weakness.

    Proof – True enough. Our day of service should be remembering what these people are and what their goal is.
