9/11 Truth Movement making big comeback this year, says media watchdog

by Jim Kouri on Sunday, August 24th, 2014

This is article 8 of 8 in the topic Conspiracy Theories

As the United States government ponders its response to the global jihad, especially with the likes of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) now tearing through Iraq, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) squeezing the life out of Yemen, Al Shabaab terrorizing both Somalia and Kenya, Boko Haram is Nigeria, Al Nusra Front leading the charge in Syria and other Islamist groups, the news media are focusing attention on what’s commonly referred to as the 9/11 Truth Movement.

During the days following the devastating destruction and death that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, there were a number of Americans who questioned the media’s coverage of what actually happened to the World Trade Center and the U.S. Pentagon.

While in the midst the President George W. Bush administration there were several media outlets that gave credence to the voices from the 9/11 Truth Movement — of Truthers, for short — but when President Barack Obama took office, those same news media voices were no longer interested in pursuing the story and theories put forward by the so-called Truthers.

However, on April 3, 2014 the well-respected and relatively unbiased C-Span cable television show “Washington Journal” invited the usually bombastic Democratic congressman, Representative Jim McDermott who appeared to have opened up the 9/11 controversy once again.

McDermott (D-WA), while a guest on “Washington Journal” took a question via telephone from a member of the television audience about the destruction of New York City’s World Trade Center’s Building 7 on 9/11. The caller addressed the evidence by several architects and structural engineers who believe that explosives of some kind brought it down. The Congressman McDermott surprised many when he said that after seeing videos covering the issue and “the questions surrounding it are legitimate, meriting further investigation.”

“…one day we will have further examination of that issue…I think the sooner the better, but that’s just my personal view.” said McDermott during his C-Span interview.

With that, a few months later, the host of “Washington Journal,” Peter Slen invited the leader of a group of engineers, architects and building construction experts onto his show to discuss the allegations that, in essence, the 9/11 tragedy that destroyed an entire Manhattan building complex and killed close to 3,000 innocent people, was in fact an inside job.

Slen’s guest, Richard Gage, explained that his group of experts, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, believes that the World Trade Center was brought down by explosive demolition on September 11, 2001 and not because of aircraft flying into the Twin Towers. Gage founded his group of highly credentialed experts in 2006 and said its mission was to “expose the official lies and cover-up surrounding the events of September 11, 2001 in a way that inspires the people to overcome denial and understand the truth.” Mr. Gage spoke via video link from San Francisco, California.

According to Gage, AE911Truth has studied the available information regarding the destruction of World Trade Center’s Buildings 1, 2, and 7. He stated that the evidence gathered includes video and audio recordings, photographs, eyewitness accounts, and physical evidence.

‘Ground Zero’ mosque’s imam accused of embezzling donations

by Jim Kouri on Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

This is article 30 of 30 in the topic Ground Zero

The alleged radical Islamic imam who headed the controversial Ground Zero mosque campaign in New York City is being accused of siphoning-off charitable donations to his non-profit organizations — originally created to combat opposition to his religious projects — in order to live a lavish lifestyle with his wife and mistress, according to a report released Monday by a nonpartisan, public-interest group that investigates and exposes government and political corruption.

The imam, Feisel Abdul Rauf, became a well-known fixture in New York and even gained the support of the city’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg when he faced widespread opposition to the building of a mosque so close to the location of the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history, which had been perpetrated by radical Islamists.

According to Judicial Watch, as the head of the American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative, Rauf is accused of embezzling and misappropriating donation funds intended for the Ground Zero mosque.

Rauf, his wife, Daisy Khan, and his alleged mistress, Evelyn Adorno, live in the same neighborhood as the Law Enforcement Examiner and are said by neighbors to be low-key people who avoid flaunting their wealth at least locally.

According the non-profit group’s Corruption Chronicles, Rauf used donated cash “to enjoy an extravagant lifestyle with a New Jersey gal pal and his wife.”

“Some of the cash was spent on a luxury sports car, lavish vacations, personal real estate and entertainment. Rauf fleeced the Malaysian government for $3 million and a Westchester County couple for $167,000,” according to a lawsuit cited in the article.

In 2010, Judicial Watch obtained records from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office that revealed Bloomberg helped Rauf obtain the approval for the project despite overwhelming opposition.

The documents, which JW had to sue City Hall to obtain, show that Bloomberg’s office was working hand in glove with the Muslim activists driving the unpopular Ground Zero mosque project.

Rauf is considered by many, including experts with the well-known and widely respected Investigative Project on Terrorism, to be a radical Islamist who blames America for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The imam has made a number of controversial statements regarding Islamic extremism, particularly the 2001 attacks.

For example, during a 60 Minutes segment about 9/11, Rauf said: “I wouldn’t say that the United States deserved what happened. But the United States’ policies were an accessory to the crime that happened…we have been an accessory to a lot of innocent lives dying in the world. In fact, in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the USA.”

According to officials at Judicial Watch, Rauf also compared the Declaration of Independence to Sharia law, the authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists and their jihadism, and he claims that Islamophobia in the U.S. is driven by racism.

“There are individuals who are working very hard to promote fear and antagonism towards Islam and Muslims in this country,” Rauf said just a few months ago. “It’s fueled, in part, by the first African-American president that we have. Obama’s father was a Muslim and people have used this to arouse hostility against him.”

The mainstream media insists, however, that Rauf is a leading moderate Muslim leader in the U.S.

From Arab Spring to the coming nuclear winter

by Douglas J. Hagmann on Thursday, July 26th, 2012

This is article 686 of 1015 in the topic Obama

As politically incorrect as this might sound before one gives it careful and thoughtful consideration, I’ve often stated the following during my many hours of talk radio. Imagine yourself standing among the rubble of what once were the World Trade Center towers, still smoldering and riddled with the carnage of nearly three thousand people in the wake of the 9/11 attacks just a few days earlier. Smell the sickening and acrid smoky haze of death as it invades your nostrils and clings to your clothes. Regardless of where you look, all 360 degrees of your vision is filled with nauseating devastation. Visualize the recovery efforts that surround you and listen to the sobbing as loved ones of the missing place photos on bulletin boards near ground zero, hoping and praying for a miracle that would never come. Watch as others bring flowers, small stuffed animals and votive candles to the edge of makeshift fencing hastily erected to separate the crime scene from what still strives to be normalcy.  Like the rest of mainstream Americans, you are still stunned by the worst attacks on America since Pearl Harbor, ostensibly at the hands of some obscure Muslim group known as al Qaeda.

Now imagine that I walked up to you and told you that ten years from that date, a man named Barack Hussein Obama II, who as a youngster in Indonesia studied the Qur’an and as a man, publicly admitted that the Muslim call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset,”  would occupy the White House. Then I proceeded to tell you that the construction of Islamic mosques would be at an all-time high across the United States, including the push for a new Islamic center less than a hundred yards of the very site on which we stood. I then added that a Muslim advocacy group known as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (the ideological predecessor of Qaeda and Hamas), would be heavily involved in shaping U.S. policies ranging from domestic security to the implementation of Sharia (Islamic law) inside the United States.

Still standing amid the smoking ruins, I proceed to tell you that this man in the Oval Office, after years of legal stonewalling against providing authenticated, historical documentation of his personal and professional life, including his own Certification of Live Birth, was pressured into providing a copy of his Certificate of Live Birth that a commissioned law enforcement body in Arizona deemed a forgery. Not only is the man in the Oval Office Constitutionally ineligible to hold that position under the Natural Born Citizen Clause of the U.S. Constitution, but veteran investigators of that law enforcement body deemed the document that he ultimately provided to be a forgery!

As you continue to gaze at the destruction, you see not only the sadness of the people nearby, but hear comments from others that indicate an anger unlike this generation has ever seen. On trucks, recovery vehicles and elsewhere, you see the American flag gently flapping in the breeze, and tell me that I’m crazy and that you’ve heard enough.

Obama’s Spectacular Failure

by Donald Douglas on Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

This is article 310 of 804 in the topic Terrorism

From Caroline Glick:

9/11 North Face Twin Towers

Two weeks ago, in an unofficial inauguration ceremony at Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Mursi took off his mask of moderation. Before a crowd of scores of thousands, Mursi pledged to work for the release from US federal prison of Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman.

According to The New York Times’ account of his speech, Mursi said, “I see signs [being held by members of the crowd] for Omar Abdel-Rahman and detainees’ pictures. It is my duty and I will make all efforts to have them free, including Omar Abdel-Rahman.”

Otherwise known as the blind sheikh, Abdel Rahman was the mastermind of the jihadist cell in New Jersey that perpetrated the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His cell also murdered Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York in 1990. They plotted the assassination of then-president Hosni Mubarak. They intended to bomb New York landmarks including the Lincoln and Holland tunnels and the UN headquarters.

Rahman was the leader of Gama’a al-Islamia – the Islamic Group, responsible, among other things for the assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981. A renowned Sunni religious authority, Rahman wrote the fatwa, or Islamic ruling, permitting Sadat’s murder in retribution for his signing the peace treaty with Israel. The Islamic group is listed by the State Department as a specially designated terrorist organization.

After his conviction in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Abdel-Rahman issued another fatwa calling for jihad against the US. After the September 11, 2001, attacks, Osama bin Laden cited Abdel-Rahman’s fatwa as the religious justification for them.

By calling for Abdel-Rahman’s release, Mursi has aligned himself and his government with the US’s worst enemies. By calling for Abdel-Rahman’s release during his unofficial inauguration ceremony, Mursi signaled that he cares more about winning the acclaim of the most violent, America-hating jihadists in the world than with cultivating good relations with America.

And in response to Mursi’s supreme act of unfriendliness, US President Barack Obama invited Mursi to visit him at the White House.

Lan astaslem: I will not surrender

by Michelle Malkin on Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Taken this morning at the Sept. 11 memorial event in America the Beautiful park, Colorado Springs, CO


At 8:46am this morning, ten years ago, murderous jihadists crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

At 9:03am this morning, ten years ago, murderous jihadists crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

At 9:37am this morning, ten years ago, murderous jihadists crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon.

At 10:15am this morning, ten years ago, the official notification of the downing of United Airlines Flight 93 into a field at Shanksville, Pa. by murderous jihadists was received by the feds.

This is a day to honor the 2,977 innocent men, women, and children slaughtered by evil Islamic jihadists — and to vow that “Never again” remains America’s operational stance, not an empty slogan.

Let nothing overshadow their memories today.

Remember: “Let’s roll!”

Remember: The heroes.

Remember: The angels on loan from God.

Remember: The 9/11 babies.

Remember: Falling Man.

Remember: Barbara Olson.

Remember: Father Mychal Judge.


Remember: Rick Rescorla.

Remember John O’Neill.

Remember: Kevin Cosgrove.

My family and I attended a moving 9/11 tribute this morning. Various politicians spoke, but U.S. Northcom commander Gen. Charles H. Jacoby, Jr. gave the most trenchant remarks. He recounted his experience 10 years ago, when he was evacuated from the Pentagon that fateful morning. He, too, called it the Pearl Harbor of his generation — and reminded the large crowd of the service and sacrifices of America’s men and women in uniform.

Over and again, the word “resolve” has been and will be invoked today.

Remembrance is worthless without resolve.

Resolve is useless without action.

But what is it exactly that you resolve?

This has been my resolution for the past several years:


Lan astaslem: Arabic for “I will not submit/surrender”

As I said on the 5th anniversary of the jihadi attacks on America, and which I underscore and repeat today:

Remembrance. Resolve. Recognition. Those have been major themes of this blog over the past several years in covering everything from the battle over the Ground Zero memorial to the fight over the Flight 93 memorial to the terror-coddling by CAIR to our persistently stupid open-door policies to jihadis to the Mohammed Cartoon rage to the plight of Abdul Rahman to the blogger whistle-blowing on “Fauxtography.”

…None of us can know exactly how we would act in Todd Beamer’s or Barbara Olson’s or Robert Stethem’s or Fabrizio Quattrocchi’s shoes. But we can gain strength in their memory, in the reinforcing presence of each other’s company, in making our refusal to submit public, and in working to honor this anniversary vow in small ways and large–long after the memorial candles have been blown out.

May God bless America.

Blessed Americans, may we all resolve to keep and protect it.


Not everyone is feeling love of country today. In case you need to be reminded of the poisonous loathing some on the Left continue to harbor, read this piece of crap from New York Times columnist and self-proclaimed conscience of liberalism, Paul Krugman.

The Lessons of 9/11

by Alan Caruba on Friday, September 9th, 2011

This is article 202 of 804 in the topic Terrorism

October 29, 1929 is the day the stock market crashed and is generally regarded as the day the Great Depression began.

In the earliest days of that decade-long economic disaster, excavation for the building of the Empire State Building was begun on January 21, 1930. The building’s drawings and blueprint has been produced in two weeks by architect William F. Lamb who used earlier designs for another tower. On May 1, 1931, the iconic skyscraper was opened for occupancy.

On September 11, 2001, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were destroyed by Islamic terrorists sent by al Qaeda, almost all of whom were Saudis. A third plane crashed into the Pentagon and a fourth was brought down in Pennsylvania when passengers fought the hijackers. Presumably it was headed for either the White House or the Capitol Building.

Not counting the hijackers, there were 2,977 victims.

In an exhaustive article by Andrew Rice, “The Saving of Ground Zero”, the story of the long, anguished struggle to build a new skyscraper to replace the Twin Towers was told in the August 8-14 edition of Business Week. Unlike the Empire State Building, the Freedom Tower is still under construction a decade passed the destruction that killed three thousand innocent Americans who did not know Islam was at war with America in particular and the West in general.

The triumphalism of Islam was expressed in the intent of some Muslims to build a mosque within steps of Ground Zero. It evoked a national uproar, but both President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg said that freedom of religion meant that it could be built. Islam is not about freedom of religion.

Islam is not a religion of peace and not a religion of tolerance. The strangest outcome of 9/11 is the way too many Americans have steadfastly resisted the fact that Islam poses both an existential and actual threat to the nation and to Western civilization.

Since 9/11/2001, there have been 23,000 terror attacks worldwide and, once again, New York and Washington, D.C. are on alert for possible car bomb terrorist attacks.

Attacks on Americans have not ceased since 9/11, from Fort Hood to Times Square.

The 16 acres of the destroyed Twin Towers was hallowed by the murder of Americans who weren’t at war with anyone, but it was also extremely valuable real estate. As Rice wrote, “To the degree that it’s possible for a 102-story building to take a city by surprise, One World Trade Center snuck up on the New York skyline.”

“For years the project, conceived in the throes of tragedy, has been debated, negotiated, renamed, redrawn, hailed as a beacon, and maligned as a boondoggle. It wasn’t until recently, though, that it presented itself as an immutable fact, beginning to replace the void above Ground Zero with steel and reflective glass.”

Consider the contrast between 1930 New York City and 2011. It took just over a year to build the Empire State Building, employing 3,400 workers. It has taken a decade for the replacement of the Twin Towers that were owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Meanwhile, the original developer, Larry Silverstein, has independently built three other office buildings to replace those destroyed on 9/11.

Prayer Slowed Hurricane Irene—Bloomberg Stops 9/11 Memorial Prayers

by Rev. Austin Miles on Thursday, September 8th, 2011

This is article 46 of 246 in the topic Religion

New York began shutting down and people evacuated the city for the first time. The total destruction expected would cripple NY and our economy to the extent that the USA could come to an end. After the storm passed over New York with minimal effect, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other leaders in New York and New Jersey were criticized and accused of ‘overreacting’ to a possible emergency.

The world’s leading climate experts determined that Hurricane Irene would slam New York City and surrounding areas with a devastating force not seen there in history.

It was a proper action. The storm trackers were correct in their assessment. However, America once again took to effectual fervent prayer and with some minor exceptions, New York City was saved. This was a factual display of the power of prayer.

There were other examples this past couple of weeks. As the Indianapolis State Fair was about to open, the headline attraction, Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles, known as Sugarland Duo, was about to go on stage when the stage manager, Hellen Rollens noticed the threatening skies and called them back as they were about to go on stage, along with their musicians, for a quick circle of prayer.

A split second later, a 70-mph wind gust slammed the stage and steel over-hang causing it to collapse, killing five people and injuring dozens more. TV viewers from around the world saw it happen.

That split second decision to stop and pray before going on the stage saved Sugarland, the musicians and crew from certain death. Another example of the power of prayer.

In the history of America, prayer was a vital force. With God as the focus of the new country, America quickly prospered and became the most powerful force in the world.

But when Prayer was declared illegal in the public schools in 1963, chaos replaced it. The crime rate climbed 100% within the first year America said essentially, “God, we don’t want you or your hand upon us.”

Then in 1972, God was grieved when Roe vs. Wade, the legalization of abortion for any reason, including inconvenience, was passed by The U.S. Surpreme Court.

As the Democrat Socialists declared all out war against God, and has deliberately insulted God, weather patterns have gone crazy and there is even chaos in the Cosmos that has never been seen before and the once robust American economy has collapsed.

By kicking God out of our lives, America was attacked by a foreign nation on our soil for this first time in our history on 9/11/01. And the attack took place in New York City and Washington, D.C.

It was prayer that soothed the nation and New York City and it was welcomed. Now, N.Y. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose politics should be obvious, has blocked Christian clergy from taking part in the upcoming 10th Anniversary 9-11 Observance as well as forbidding prayers to be said at the Memorial.

With so much effort to remove all references of God and Jesus Christ from our society, when that day happened, some people asked angrily, “Where was God on 9/11?”

Interesting. America said, “we want nothing to do with you God, so leave us alone…get out of our lives.

9/11 on Tea Party Express V National Bus Tour

by Lloyd Marcus on Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

This is article 43 of 75 in the topic Tea Party

I awoke and became annoyed when I discovered Mary forgot to pay the water bill. That was the extent of my problems September 11, 2001. Meanwhile, many of my fellow Americans in the twin towers were faced with the unimaginable horror of deciding whether to leap to their deaths or be consumed by fire. Dear Lord.

Ten years after 9/11 Mayor Bloomberg banned prayer from the New York 9/11 Memorial Ceremony. And yet, Bloomberg supports the building of a mosque at Ground Zero.

The left supports Sharia Law while President Obama canceled the traditional National Day of Prayer at the White House for fear of offending Muslims.

Remarkably, thanks to the grace of God and the efforts of George W. Bush, America has not suffered another terrorist attack. And yet, the Obama administration is still seeking to prosecute CIA heroes who helped to protect us.

Terrorists caught on the battle field detained at Guantanamo Bay are treated with kid gloves; special concessions made out of respect for their religion, Islam, which includes meal choices from five menus, served at a specific temperature or thrown out and prepared again.

Muslim detainees are given prayer beads, a prayer mat and a Quran which can not be touched by non-Muslims because we are considered infidels. Thus, a Muslim interpretor gives the detainees their sacred items. At Guantanamo, arrows painted on the floor pointing east informs detainees in which direction to pray.

Meanwhile, three U.S. Navy Seals are facing court marital for allegedly giving a terrorist a fat lip.

Clearly, ten years after the horrific 9/11 attacks, America has two enemies seeking her destruction; Al-Qaeda and the American left who reside mostly in the Democratic Party lead by Barack Husein Obama. To save America, BOTH must be defeated.

The Bible documents on numerous occasions how God raised up a remnant. The modern equivalent of God raising up a remnant is the Tea Party movement; no leader, no figure head and no single governing organization. The Tea Party is simple We The People; individuals following their gifts and passions to turn our country around back to the principles and values which have made her GREAT!

The left is in panic mode to counter the Tea Party. Because their philosophy is so flawed, they can not win on it’s merit. Thus, the left must resort to lies and ginning up class envy and racial hatred. Totally despicable.

I will spend 9/11 on Tea Party Express V national bus tour at our rally in Deltona, FL.

With forces on both sides of the political aisle fighting to maintain the status quo; crony-ism, bigger government and even increasing out of control spending, the tea party is the last hope for America; God’s remnant to save America and restore her to her former glory.

Dumbest Statements in D.C. History—NYCs Bloomberg Axes Christian Prayer from 9/11 Memorial

by Rev. Austin Miles on Monday, September 5th, 2011

This is article 42 of 1015 in the topic Obama

Commentary Feature: The occupant of The White House in his State of The Union Address regarding the economy famously said, “We will reduce The National Debt by raising the debt ceiling.” (?) Yep, the way to reduce debt is to borrow some more. And The One utters this kind of stupidity with a straight face. Then there is this regarding the high price of gasoline:

The tax on gasoline is set to expire and Obama has said that he will extend the tax on gas and raise it. He has made it clear that he WANTS gas prices to be even higher. Then, according to Fox News, He saith, “Gas will soon go up to seven dollars a gallon which will be good since people will drive less because of the cost of gasoline which will be good for the economy and energy problem.”  How’s that again??

The problem with the Usurper in The White House is NOT due to affirmative action or a job training program gone haywire, nor incompetence. Obama is not dumb or incompetent. He knows exactly what he is doing and precisely what his Communist Party USA (CPUSA) handlers and Czars are ordering him to do.  And he is carrying out his assignment well, as Americans sit numbly and just watch instead of bombarding every office in D.C. demanding that he be immediately removed from the office he illegally occupies before it is too late to save America.

Ancient Rome kept the citizens in line by what became known as The Bread and Circus Doctrine. Roman authoritties made sure there was food for the masses (welfare-Socialism) and…the circus….entertainment to distract the citizens so they would not really know what their leaders were doing.

The circuses consisted of the brutal games in The Coliseum where gladiators fought to the death while others were torn apart by wild beasts bringing cheers from the audiences. They loved the spectacles and suffering.

Being a democracy, at the top of the Coliseum was a level, without seats, but where the poor people could come in free and stand to enjoy the horrific displays of cruelty. The reasoning?  The poor cannot be deprived of attending such events like everybody else. This is a classic Socialism tactic and attitude. That is the system that led to the fall of The Roman Empire. Yet Obama and his Marxists are trying again to make that flawed system work in America.

The Bread and Circus Doctrine is alive and well in America. Obama’s agenda, in his own words on television to Joe the Plumber, is to re-distribute the wealth.  Non-workers will receive welfare and food stamps to keep them fed, housing allowance,education (indocrination)  along with non-stop entertainment and information overload that goes on 24 hours a day. Hundreds of television channels offer a steady diet of constant programs to satisfy every taste, lust. and cruelty along with every perversion and fetish known, with violent video games which desensitizes Americans who can be programmed to attack others when it is useful to the Communist agenda. This is part of the weakening of America by causing unrest and encouraging pornography use and drinking. They are also dumbing down the beautiful English language to street slang with streams of vulgarity including the “F” word in private and public conversations.

Obama’s talking points: Play down role of al-Qaeda on 9-11 attacks

by Jim Kouri on Monday, September 5th, 2011

This is article 2 of 804 in the topic Terrorism

President Obama is advocating an alternate reality for memorializing the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans. Credit: Some Americans are suggesting President Obama should read the reports regarding the al-Qaeda attack on the United States on September 11, 2001.

A firestorm appears to be brewing as more and more Americans — especially cops, firefighters and military personnel — learn that the U.S. Commander in Chief is dictating what U.S. officials should and should not say during the 10th anniversary observance of the 9-11 terrorist attacks.

The main memorial is scheduled to be held at the site of where the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers once stood in lower Manhattan. There also will be memorials at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where United Flight 93 went down after passengers attacked the Islamic terrorist hijackers.

In order for all Obama  administration officials to be “on the same page,” the White House issued “guidance,” — a/k/a talking points — to all US officials on how to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

The President Barack Obama is calling for officials to use “positive” and “forward-looking” language and to avoid repeated references to al-Qaeda, the terrorist group responsible for the death and destruction on 9-11.

In addition, rather than commemorating the attack as one perpetrated against the United States and the American people, Obama wishes to concentrate on describing the 9-11 victims as “victims of global terrorism” and acknowledging that victims were citizens from almost 100 countries including Islamic nations.

“The Obama White House is the most controlling administration since the Nixon years. It’s also the most radically ‘politically correct’ in U.S. history,” said a former police officer in New York who was on duty during the 9-11 attacks.

“Obama appears more interested in ‘globalism’ than he is in celebrating American exceptionalism,” said Police Officer Edie Aquino (NYPD-Ret.).

The guidelines are the result of lengthy discussions at the White House, according to a federal law enforcement official. They are designed to highlight the steps taken to thwart terrorist plots against the US since 9-11 and praise foreign allies in the fight against terror.

The commemoration of the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001 will be broadcast globally and will be viewed by many millions of viewers.

During his weekly radio address over the weekend, Obama stated that the 9/11 anniversary would be a day of “service and remembrance.”
