Thoughts on 9/11

September 11, 2013:

So there was supposed to be a “Million Muslim March Against Fear” on Washington today. NBC Washington reported that the event was “sparsely attended” – the understatement of the year. The actual count was about twenty-five people – and that’s twenty-five too many! Anyone who thinks that the anniversary of 9/11 is an appropriate day for such a “march” may be considered an enemy of the United States, or, at the very least, such a person should be considered as one who chooses to give support to the jihadists who want to kill us. (Kudos to all of those patriotic bikers who descended on Washington to counter the Million Muslim March!)

An organized Muslim march on September 11th in Washington is the immoral equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan marching on Washington on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Good, decent, peace-loving people do not pretend that such things are OK. Nor do decent people think it’s OK to build a mosque a block away from Ground Zero.

When I rustled out of bed this morning, I had forgotten what day it was – I don’t mark my calendar in anticipation of the anniversary of 9/11, but as I unfolded my laptop and started prowling around the news, it was there – live from Ground Zero, the surviving relatives choking out the names of their loved ones who were murdered at Shanksville, lower Manhattan and Arlington twelve years ago. I clicked the TV on and began watching uninterrupted news footage as it was recorded twelve years ago. This awakened in me feelings I experienced that horrible day.

Some say “Move on! – That’s all in the past…” They are mistaken. Some even say 9/11 was payback.

One of the most important things we need to remind ourselves is that the jihadists are still at war with western civilization and Americans are still their number one target. Just ask Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan or the families of his victims, or Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, or the survivors and families of his victims. Even though the Obama Administration refuses to acknowledge a “war on terror,” the jihadists are plotting and planning and waiting for every opportunity to kill Americans. Our weakness or lack of resolve becomes their opportunity. They will strike again.

The American people are still waiting for the Obama administration to come clean about events leading up to the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, just one year ago – the 11th anniversary of 9/11 – no coincidence. And today, one day after 9/11, those same nihilists detonated a bomb at the Foreign Ministry in Benghazi – again no coincidence, for jihadists love to commemorate anniversaries with more death and destruction.

They will never admit it, but the truth is that senior officials in the Obama administration covered up their negligence and incompetence in handling the events that led to the attack at Benghazi that resulted in four Americans deaths. The victims were Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith and embassy security personnel, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who hopes to win our favor and become the first female President in 2016, was noticeably absent from the public eye in the aftermath of Benghazi.  In her place, then Ambassador Susan Rice was sent out by the Obama administration to lie to the American people in large part to prevent the Benghazi tragedy from damaging President Obama’s re-election prospects. President Obama has since rewarded Rice for her “loyalty” by making her our nation’s top national security advisor. This type of behavior simply shows that personal ambition and political power are the priority of this administration, rather than the truth, and the protection of the interests of the American people. The memories of those four Americans killed at Benghazi have been dishonored by this administration’s crafty lies.

The past cannot be changed; therefore I offer this wish for the future: May the American people soon find the collective wisdom to elect moral leaders, people who put the welfare of this country and its people ahead of their personal ambitions, unlike the rot occupying our present leadership in Washington.  That goes for Democrats and Republicans.

The present administration’s cover up of Benghazi was as much about Barack Obama’s re-election as it was about Hillary Clinton’s ambition to become the next president of the United States.

If you prefer lies and deception to the ideals and principles that have made America great, then in 2016, Hillary is your man.

Warning: Mark my words –  If you are a male person and you are thinking of voting for someone other than Hillary in 2016, you will be accused of being the worst kind of neanderthal, subhuman, sexist soldier continuing the “war on women.”
