**Posted by Phineas Several items fall under this category, today, but let’s start with the best, first: a previously unknown al Qaeda cell in Los Angeles, just before 9-11. The FBI has launched a manhunt for a previously unknown team of men suspected to be part of the 9/11 attacks, the Daily Telegraph can disclose. […]

The glaring headline at Maddow’s blog reads (via): Republicans vs. 9-11 heroes About the 9/11 health responders bill, former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani and MSDNC’s Joe Scarborough were quoted as saying: With just hours left in the 111th Congress, Republican lawmakers find themselves the target of ire and scorn from the most unlikely of adversaries: […]

Well, isn’t that interesting? The Imam who wants to build a mosque community center rabat at Ground Zero in order to build bridges of understanding and religious tolerance is closely associated with an Islamic 9-11 Truther: In his interview with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien on Wednesday, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf defended his plans to build a […]

I missed this quote from President Obama yesterday regarding the Islamofascist thugs who murdered 3,000 innocents on 9-11: President Obama stressed that America was not at war with Islam as he decried the “sorry band of men” who attacked the nation nine years ago in memorial ceremonies at the Pentagon on Saturday. “The perpetrators of […]

9-11: George W. Bush and his bullhorn

Longtime readers of this blog will recognize this post, as I have published it here every 9-11 since 2006 in honor of Mr. Mardikian, and all victims of the 9-11 terror attacks, as part of DC Roe’s 9-11 remembrance project.

In an interview this morning that aired on ABC’s Good Morning America, President Obama weighed in on the controversy surrounding the Florida church that plans to burn the Koran on 9/11: WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is exhorting a Florida minister to “listen to those better angels” and call off his plan to engage […]
