Osama Bin Laden Dead

Good.

Bush has issued a statement:

Former President George W. Bush, whose entire presidency was defined by the September 11th attacks, said in a statement tonight that President Obama called him to inform him of the news of bin Laden’s death.

Bush called the operation a “momentous achievement” that “marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.”

“I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude,” the former president said in a statement. “The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.”

It’s just a shame that he had to wait until now to get the result. But a win is a win – and Obama should be congratulated for standing up to his far-left base and making the right call.

Never Forget

From two years ago: We Have Forgotten

Six years ago, I went to bed after a day that was just like any other. I have no idea what I did that day – the 9th of September was a day like any other.

But the following morning, I woke and turned on the radio. I heard the World Trade Centre had been bombed. In my half awake state, I assumed it was the anniversary of the 1993 attacks. In fact, back then I didn’t even remember when that first attack had been.

But then they said the Pentagon was on fire.

That woke me up.

I rushed out and turned on the TV, and the world has never been the same. I remember that day, how Americans at work were clustered around the TV in the break room. I remember how we kept the internet radio and TV news on constantly.

We understood what had happened. A war had started. A terrible war (as all wars are) but even worse, because this war was one where modern technology and freedoms were being used against those civilisations who had built them over so many years. The world changed.

The following Sunday, we attended a memorial church service. Behind us was a young man who was adorned with “No War” slogans. Too late.

Even worse, the war had started years ago, maybe even before 1993 – but we in the west had not taken any notice.We said we would never forget. But we have.

On this page, you can see all firemen who died in the towers. Google search describes this as “all FDNY members murdered on 9 11 01″. But the page itself has been sanitised, the word “murder” is not to be found in the page, or even in the source as a search engine keyword. Just the other day, a interviewee on German TV described the attacks as “accidents”.

Update: NZ Conservative points out another sign.

Eight years ago today I awoke to the news 2993 had been killed in an atrocity without precedent in modern times. It was a “where were you when you heard” moment.

So how does the New Zealand Herald choose to remember this event?

With an AP story titled: The date all US Muslims dread.

The thing is, 9/11 was not even the first attack, it wasn’t even the last one – ask any Londoner.

In fact, the counter on the right sidebar lists 0ver 14,000 deaths since 9/11 due to Islamic terrorism.

Cox & Forkum outlined the problem back in 2006.

9/11 Moonbats – A missile hit WTC-2

Good grief, there are now people who honestly believe that a missile hit WTC-2.

What evidence do they have? Why, camera angles that don’t show a plane! And I thought it was established that Kyle from South Park was responsible for 9/11. Shows how much I know.

But on a lighter note, here’s someone willing to make fun of these idiots.

Consider this your Saturday Night Humour video.

HT, No Minister.

“Hey, We did 9/11″ – al-Zawahri

Heh, had to happen sooner or later. Al-Qaida is claiming that the conspiracy theories about 9/11 being orchestrated by Bush are… a conspiracy theory to make it look like his outfit aren’t to be taken seriously.

“The purpose of this lie is clear — (to suggest) that there are no heroes among the Sunnis whoAlZawahri can hurt America as no else did in history. Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it,” he said.

The Onion has covered this material previously, so there’s video already. Quite funny!

I read somewhere the other day that Ahmadinejad, President of Iran, was supporting these theories. I guess there’s one pretty odvious hole in his story though…

He appeared to cast doubt on the official version of the attacks, saying the names of those killed had never been published and questioning how the planes had hit the towers of the World Trade Centre in New York.

“An event was created in the name of the attack against the twin towers. We were all sad. It was said that 3,000 people were killed,” Ahmadinejad said.

“But the names of the 3,000 people were never published and nobody was able to respond to the main question, which is how is it possible that with the best radar systems and intelligence networks the planes could crash undetected into the towers.”

I suppose we don’t count reading them out on the anniversary at public events?

Did I Just Hear Hillary Say…

Over at Hot Air, they have this add from Rudy, attacking Hillary over the stuff that happened this week. But that’s not what I’m posting this here.

Nope, this clip includes Hillary Clinton saying that Saddam gave assistance to Al Qaeda.

That’s right – forget about Bush “lying”, Hillary Clinton connected Iraq to 9/11 to justify the war. Can we call them liars now?

After 9/11 it was realised that the world could not afford to have rouge states, that people who declared war on the west could no longer be laughed off. Afghanistan was retaken and the legitimate government returned. That country is still in turmoil, but it has a chance after many years of war to become a place worth living in again.

Iraq was the next target due to the unresolved issues from the 1990 war. A vicious dictator was removed and eventually hung for his crimes. Other dictators started to take notice. Libya gave up WMD that we didn’t even know they had.

These actions, so clearly obvious in the time after 9/11, have become so controversial that last year the celebrations were held in silence. Some have become so screwed up that they have charged those protecting us with greater crimes than those attacking. They have been egged on by the media, only interested in their next headline. Bush has become like a small town man, who is daily condemned as a murder and rapist in the local daily’s headlines, but in the end of paragraph 13, we discover that the local louts did it. “Illegal” wiretaps were actually authorised by the Democrats (though they’ve now “forgotten” that). Hillary and Kerry voted for Iraq on the same intelligence as Bush (but now they tell us that although they didn’t, Bush knew the truth). Saddam didn’t have weapons of mass destruction, but he still had missiles that were supposed to have been destroyed 12 years earlier. Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11, but he was still part of the wider problem that 9/11 showed us.

I remember listening to a mentor of mine speaking about the day WWII ended. He said he and his friends would not have believed that day that we would not have a world-wide conflict for the next 50 years. The reason for this is simple: people remembered the lessons form WWII, and did not let dictators get too dangerous. On 9/11, we received a massive wake up call – but not before we ignored many smaller ones.

I no longer turn to the news fearing that the next attack will be announced. One day New Zealand will be attacked and it will be our turn to mourn the dead and come to terms with mass murder and hatred from those we have only helped. After 6 years, we are still lucky this has not happened.

But it will.
Because we have forgotten.

Stop the ACLU has more remembering.

We are Screwed

Exhibit A.

Sandy Berger – Still Covering for Clinton I

Sandy Berger stole and destroyed documents which are assumed to have implicated Clinton in failing to prepare for 9/11.

He’s now so desperate to avoid testifying that he’s surrendered his law license.

And they want back in the White House…

Steel Melted By Fire for the Second Time!

LGF has a post on the recent fire on the SF highway.

See, it melted the steel roadway above it, causing it to collapse.

“So what?” I hear you saying.

Well, according to 9/11 conspiracy theorists, it can’t. Oops.
