Twentieth Anniversary Of 9/11 Terror Attack, and Reflections By Condoleeza Rice *Weekend Open Thread*

September 11, 2021

Smoke pours from the twin towers of the World Trade Center after they were hit by two hijacked airliners in a terrorist attack September 11, 2001 in New York City.  (Photo by Robert Giroux/Getty Images)It’s hard to believe that Saturday is the twentieth anniversary of that fateful day when our nation was attacked by radical Islamists. How well I remember seeing those planes fly into the World Trade Towers, a shocking sight that still affects me every time I see it. Then the terrorists hit the Pentagon and WANTED to hit another target but were thwarted by unbelievably brave, courageous passengers on that plane.

I will never forget that day and what they did to us. Ever. It amazes me that so many not only seem to have forgotten, but are busy trying to turn it around to depict the terrorists as victims.

No, really, they are – like the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Education preparing a video teaching that on the anniversary of 9/11, a video should be shown (but not mandated – thanks for that, traitors) taking the very position that RACISM is to blame for those poor terrorists killing almost 3,000 Americans. Apparently, they are not smart enough in the state that HOUSES THE PENTAGON to know that being MUSLIM is not about RACE. Whatevs. I wrote abt this in a post on 8/31/21 if you want to refresh your memories on their lunacy. (Photo by Tech. Sgt. Cedric H. Rudisill, USAF, Aerial view of the destruction.)

Since then, our idiot President decided that the TALIBAN (Tall-ey-bahn or something like that) is just hunky dory and they aren’t going to try and kill us anymore, so buh-bye, Afghanistan! Except the Taliban – who are our ENEMIES – are hunting down Americans, hunting down people who helped us, shooting women, like the pregnant police officer, Banu Negar, who they shot in front of her family, and have completely taken over the entire country of Afghanistan. Our President did that. Right before SEPTEMEBER ELEVENTH.

Check out what this refugee had to say about the Taliban, the ones our politicians are acting like can be negotiated with like normal people. From Faithwire:

“They were killing, beating women, beating kids in front of my own eyes,” she said. “I was seeing the same Taliban that was there 20 years ago. They didn’t change. This time they are bold. They are more experienced. They have even more experience to find the people.”

People like her husband, father, and siblings who worked alongside the U.S. government for years are left behind with no way out of the chaos and violence.

“It is really hard, and in the morning, you wake up, you see that you lost everything you achieved in 20 years,” the woman said. “We did not achieve them easy. We paid a lot. We paid by our lives.”

She also regrets not being able to honor her mother’s dying wish.

“She asked me to help two of my sisters. I was not able to help them. They are not only my sisters. There are millions of women. They paid a lot. They lost everything.” […] Click here to read the rest.)

Do I need to mention that Al Qaeda and the Taliban are branches of the same tree? Yeah. They are. And for reasons that boggle the mind, our politicians are acting like they’re gonna, you know, fly the pride flag or something. Good God.

The Democrats in Congress claim that people who were invited into the Capitol by the police, who were unarmed and did little damage to the building, were WORSE THAN THE TERRORISTS WHO ATTACKED US. This is their line of attack, that some people who, misguided though they were, who did next to no damage and KILLED NO ONE, are worse than the radical Islamic terrorists who attacked our country twenty years ago and who CONTINUE to threaten us.

And you better believe the families of those lost that day are none too pleased about this claim by the Left. From FoxNews (h/t JihadWatch):

It’s been nearly 20 years since his son Jimmy was among the 343 New York firefighters to die at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The 9/11 terrorist attacks by Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people, launched wars, and changed the world.

[…]

“It’s a shame,” he said. “Are they kidding me? 3,000 people died, plus we have more people dying from the air that was down there … They’re comparing it to score points politically. The families are really [angry]. When I talk to them, when they compare it to that, they find that outrageous.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

It IS outrageous. It is beyond reprehensible to compare these two events, especially given all of the MANY times Leftists have attacked the Capitol Building, disrupted hearings, took over the building, and tried to BLOW IT UP.

Yes, they did. Remember the Weather Underground? From where Obama’s mentor Bill Ayers came? Yeah. They set off a bomb in the Capitol Building and did a boatload of damage.

Then there was the Communist group in the ’80’s comprised of women only, a terrorist organization, that set off a bomb in the Capitol, too. At least they warned the switchboard that they were going to do it, but still, yeah – Leftist terrorist group bombed the Capitol.

But sure, unarmed Trump supporters with flags and cell phones taking selfies are the REAL terrorists, not the radical Islamists who went after US citizens. No wonder the families are angry. Any decent human being WOULD be angry to have the lives of their loved ones so diminished by this insane comparison.

After I wrote the above, I saw this in an email from Faithwire. It seemed appropos:

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness.”
Isaiah 5:20

Amen to that. And that is what we are seeing now, aren’t we?

But I want to bring this back around to the events of 9/11 itself. That’s what we are remembering this day, those who were lost that day, and how it changed our country (for a time).

Recently, Ben Shapiro had a lengthy conversation with former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice for the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 Islamic Terrorist attack (sadly, it seems important to actually point that out these days). It was a fascinating conversation, I thought. Hope you do, too:

Such a time that was, and how we came together so quickly as a nation. For reasons that evade me, too many have been hellbent on destroying the unity we felt after that day.

Thank God, there are still many of us who do remember, who remember the sacrifices that day, the lives lost, the families and friends affected forever. We remember. Because remember we must.

In closing, this rendition of “Amazing Grace” for all those fallen that day, and the first responders who continue to succumb to illness as a result of running in to save others, is for them all.

And for us as a nation to get some perspective on who is good, and who is evil. The choice in the case of 9/11 is crystal clear.

On this 9/11, twenty years after the attack, I leave you with this:

May we never forget September 11, 2001, and those lost…
