But on that day, they became part of the fight......but then again, when they did, so many went off in the wrong direction, only seeing one thing, only seeing one kind of people........and being so blind to anything else.

Mike tosses in the Red Bull Crap Flag!

Yes, that changed that day, too.

I use to greet my boss, others with "Who are we at war with?"......I stopped used that phrase on that day.

It really is a bummer when one's intended victims don't know what you are talking about.

At work. The nature of my job then depended upon air cargo and once there was a ground stop I left work, went to the bank and grabbed a thousand bucks. Then joined my wife at her job and watched in disbelief for the rest of the day.

At the dentist in the parking lot. Saw Air Force One fly over minutes later. Bush was visiting school children.

US had been terrorizing countries for decades and are still doing it today. Pres Eisenhower Warner is of the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. Is there anyone who can disagree with that?

I was at home, close to 6 AM in Phoenix, mom knowing that I am an aviation enthusiast, called me and asked me if I was watching the news on TV, I told her no the TV was off, she mentioned that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. I turned the TV on and they had a live shot of the north tower with heavy smoke billowing out of the impact zone, I watched for a couple of minutes and I went back into the kitchen to make coffee and I heard this loud commotion on TV, so I walked back into the living room and it was just after the second aircraft (United Flight 175) hit the south tower and I saw this fireball that engulfed a big part of middle section of the tower. I can also remember hearing one of the announcers saying ".. this was not an accident folks." and I certainly had the feeling that there was something sinister going on. I kept watching TV as I heard the report that "a plane has just crashed into the Pentagon." (American Airlines Flight 77), and later about the one that crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania (United Flight 93). I went to work a little late and I heard about the collapse of the WTC twin towers.

Saw the first tower on fire and saw the people on the streets being interviewed saying the plane intentionally flew into the tower. While the camera was on the burning tower, it caught the second plane striking the second tower. Wish I hadnít turned on the radio to hear his announcement. I could have gone to bed that morning and gotten enough sleep. Instead I couldnít hardly sleep at all. Was downing cups of strong coffee all night at work just to stay awake. Though itís been 18 years, it still feels like yesterday.

I was living in my previous apartment on a bright Tuesday morning. Woke up at 7:30, and turned on a sports talk show. The next hour, one of the sportscasters had pointed out that a plane has hit the World Trade Center. After hearing several minutes of commentary by the radio guys, I had decided to turn on the TV and watch the events unfold. It was like a horror movie. We all wondered what was going to happen next by the time a third airplane crashed, and then the fourth. I sat there wondering, "Who's going to be next? And where? How many more hijacked airplanes would there be today?"

Sure wasn't easy going into work (at noon) on that day. But the experiences sure changed everything.

That day for me was surreal. I think it was for many of us. I think it's the closest my generation came to understanding how we as a nation felt on Dec 7, 1941. The difference is we got to watch it live.

What amazes me, is an elected rep saying Somebody did Something, to describe what happened on 9/11, and how many support her for it or try to deflect.

We know who the somebodies were. Obama spent 8 years trying to make it a bad thing to call an event muslim terrorism or to describe Muslim extremists as terrorists. He lied about Benghazi and what caused it in an effort to minimize Muslim extremist involvement. He went so far as to blame it on an unknown video on Youtube.

Now we have Omar saying "somebody did Something."

No, it wasn't somebody. It was Muslim terrorists who did it. The event was celebrated in many muslim countries, including Pakistan who has received billions in aid from the USA.

The lesson to learned here is that we have been overly generous with our alleged allies in the ME.
