9/11, five years later

Filed under: General Homeland Security — by Christian Beckner on September 11, 2006

I returned to DC yesterday from vacation, tanned and recharged for work and blogging. I was in a news void for most of the trip, so I’m catching up today on the news of the past two weeks. Expect a number of catch-up posts in the next few days. And thanks to Kate for her posts in my absence.

Of course, at the top of my mind today is the five year anniversary of 9/11. The memories of that day still seem raw and fresh. Watching snippets of the TV coverage this morning brought back the horrors and stunned emotions of that day. It’s a day for mourning and sober reflection, and it’s also a day for courage and resolve in the face of the very real threats that we still face, and a reminder that much remains undone in our efforts to improve the security of the homeland.

Rest in peace.

You should read a book called THE TERROR TIMELINE by Paul Thompson(from HarperCollins). The book uses only mainstream media sources to chronicle the events leading to 9/11. It shows that the Bush Adm. was fore warned about the attacks by Putin, Mubarak, King Abdullah, and many other less prominent people, like Robert Baer the CIA agent. The case for the Bushies allowing the attacks to occur is simply overwhelming.
Dont run from the evidence. The book deserves a review from thoughtful people like yourself.
