Thirteen Years Later … anger still

It’s the eve before the 13th anniversary of the Islamic terror attacks on America . I’m sure there will be memorial and remembrance ceremonies across the nation, but there seems to be very little mention of them in the media today.  My local paper has nothing – same with local TV websites – I hope this is not part of a nationwide trend.  The visions I saw 13 years ago are as clear today as they were then.

I wrote the following last year.  Please feel free to share.

Twelve Years Later … anger

September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City: V...

“… an anger in knowing that those that attacked us on September 11, 2001 are realizing success in reaching their goals.”

It has been twelve years and as I sit and watch scenes from September 11, 2001, I feel anger.

An anger towards those that attacked my country.    While the media focuses on ceremonies involving wreath laying and speeches at various memorials, the live footage of people jumping to their deaths from the Twin Towers remains fresh in mind.

Anger at those that supported the attacks.   Foreign Islamist  organizations  and, specifically, the groups and mosques in the U.S. that provided logistical support to the Islamic terrorists that hijacked the aircraft and killed the thousands of souls in the name of Islam.

Anger at those that wish to sanitize what happened and whitewash history.  We were attacked that day by Islamic terrorists as part of an Islamic jihad. News coverage of the “remembrance” makes no mention of this or even Al-Qaeda – we were simply attacked by generic terrorists.  The anger builds listening to the politicians giving memorial speeches that never mention those responsible for the heinous attacks that shook this great nation.  Somehow these politicians feel that “looking forward” and rebuilding will make us better Americans.   They are sadly mistaken.

Anger toward those that seek appeasement.    Whether it is the removal of training materials that Muslim’s find offensive or the inclusion of our enemies on government advisory boards, it is an anger in knowing that those that attacked us on September 11, 2001 are realizing success in reaching their goals.

My anger serves a purpose – I will never forget what happened that day.

FBI tap dance on FL Saudi 9/11 connection

Can only hope the conspiracy crowd doesn’t latch
on too tightly and cloud the waters.   Of course there
may be some that would welcome the diversion.
 

FBI’s attempt to water down judicial order denied; 9/11 documents begin to flow to judge

From:  www.browardbulldog.org
By: Dan Christensen and Anthony Summers, April 18, 2014

A Fort Lauderdale federal judge Friday gave the FBI another week to produce tens of thousands of pages from its massive 9/11 investigation for his inspection, but forcefully denied government requests that he water down his own previous order requiring disclosure.

Hours after the order was filed, a government lawyer filed court papers saying the Justice Department had delivered “27 pages of classified material” to the court for the judge’s private, or “in camera,” inspection.

The legal developments are among a flurry of recent activity in the Freedom of Information case that was filed by BrowardBulldog.org in 2012. The suit seeks records from a once secret FBI investigation into apparent pre-9/11 terrorist activity in Sarasota.

“What’s important here is that the Justice Department was seeking wholesale reconsideration of the prior order and the judge instead issued a stern rejection of the idea that he undo what he had previously ordered,” said the Bulldog’s Miami attorney, Thomas Julin.

The investigation focused on a Saudi family with ties to the Royal family and apparent connections to some of the 9/11 hijackers and another terrorist figure who once lived in Broward. The investigation began after Abdulaziz al Hijji and his wife, Anoud, abruptly moved out of their upscale home in a gated community about two weeks before the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, leaving behind cars, furniture, clothing and food in the kitchen.

COMMENT/ANALYSIS: This is a very interesting case centering around the al-Hijji family that lived in a Sarasota, Florida community- just south of Tampa.  In short, the original FOIA request resulted in a reply from the FBI that there really wasn’t any information of interest and what they did have, could not be released because of privacy concerns.   As the legal filings went back and forth, the FBI contradicted itself repeatedly – going from claiming nothing to suddenly having 27 boxes of documents – many claimed to be not releasable because of national security concerns. 

The FBI eventually did release around 30+ documents.  To add to the head-scratching, the FBI stated that there were no connections found between the Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorists – BUT – within the released documents are FBI investigative notes saying there is a connection.   There are also allegations  the FBI kept these Florida ties from a Congressional inquiry into 9/11 – apparently there was a similar situation in California.

Can only hope the conspiracy crowd doesn’t latch on too tightly and cloud the waters.   Of course there may be some that would welcome the diversion.

FLASH: Islam Museum planned for 9/11 site

CAIR, along with other Muslim groups, complain about
a documentary that might
offend visiting Muslims.
Apparently offending 9/11 families is not a concern.

Museum of Islam Planned for Mosque Site Near WTC

By: NBC Los Angeles
On: Wednesday, Apr 30, 2014

The developer who once proposed a mosque and Muslim community center near ground zero now plans a museum devoted to Islam at the same site.

Sharif El-Gamal said in a statement he wants to build a three-story museum “dedicated to exploring the faith of Islam and its arts and culture.”

He said he commissioned French architect Jean Nouvel to design a 5,000-square-foot museum. The building also would include a sanctuary for prayer services and community programs.

It’s unclear how El-Gamal would fund the project.

Spokesman Hank Sheinkopf would only say that El-Gamal would initially finance it himself and hoped to find other benefactors.

No timetable was given.

Buildings at 45 Park Place and 51 Park Place, two blocks from the World Trade Center site, would need to be demolished first.

9/11 museum film draws heat for portrayal of Islam

By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, April 24, 2:06 PM

NEW YORK — A film that will be shown at the National September 11 Memorial Museum when it opens next month unfairly links Islam and terrorism, clergy members said in letters demanding it be changed.

“The Rise of Al Qaeda,” a brief documentary narrated by NBC anchor Brian Williams, shows the growth of international terrorist groups in the years leading up to the 2001 attacks. The film has not been publicly released, but museum officials have screened it for groups including an interfaith clergy advisory panel.

Members of the clergy group sent a letter to museum officials this week asking that the film be re-edited to make it clear that not all Muslims support the terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Center.

“We continue to posit that the video may very well leave viewers with the impression that all Muslims bear some collective guilt or responsibility for the actions of al-Qaida, or even misinterpret its content to justify bigotry or even violence toward Muslims or those perceived to be Muslim (e.g., Sikhs),” the clergy members wrote. The signers included Peter B. Gudaitis, chief executive of New York Disaster Interfaith Services, and the Rev. Chloe Breyer, executive director of the Interfaith Center of New York.

Officials at the Sept. 11 museum, which opens May 21 at the trade center site, said the film doesn’t suggest that all Muslims are terrorists.
