Seventeen Years Later

The worst terrorist attack on American soil occurred seventeen years ago today, on Tuesday, September 11, fifteen minutes from now.

The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others, and caused at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage. Additional people died of 9/11-related cancer and respiratory diseases in the months and years following the attacks.

Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers all of which departed from airports in the northeastern part of the 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 Lower Manhattan. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia, which led to a partial collapse of the building’s west side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was initially flown toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers thwarted the hijackers.

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

Seventeen years later, far too many Americans have become apologists for Islamists, and football players kneel during the national anthem on 9-11. Seventeen years later, police officers like those who rushed into those buildings, lauded at the time, are now vilified as racists. Ironically, the September 11 attacks were a victory for Islam, because the culture has forever changed; and not for the better.

  1. An unholy alliance between the leftists and islamists has existed long before the attacks. The leftists are feeding the alligator in hopes it eats them last. Anyone who thinks islamic countries are peaceful need to spend a few years in one or two of them. It could prove enlightening for them.

  2. And now that I have cried thanks to “Geezer”, I can move on with my day. I sincerely hope this is being taught in schools but my fear is that it is not in many “progressive”schools. And, after Obama calling Benghazi an “republican conspiracy theory” I truly worry for this country. Obama needs to take his millions he made by dividing this country and just shut up and go away!

  3. TXNick – Ironically the leftists will be the first ones slaughtered. Seems Islamists aren’t too fomd of the gays and their supporters.

    RG – Powerful.

    Ronni – Obama said that about Benghazi for a reason. The anniversary was approaching and it was an opportunity to continue his bullshit narrative.

    I do, however, highly recommend the movie about the attacks; 13 Hours. In my opinion, it’s a brilliant film.

    1. I also enjoyed 13 Hours, but it could have shown the fact that the rescue of the personnel was vetoed by someone high up in the food chain in D.C. I’ve heard in some places it was the Farsi Ferret, in other places the Hildabeast. Someone made the call to abandon our people in Benghazi…. and were never punished.

      1. I heard it was a conscious decision to not make it political; both from the director and the men involved. Besides, what studio would green light it if it criticized Half-Black Jesus?
