Errr, what about the Boston Marathon bombing and Ft. Hood massacre?

From “60 Minutes” last night:
Lesley Stahl: But when you have so many phone records being held, emails, heads of state’s phone conversations being listened in to, has it been worth our allies being upset? Has it been worth all the tech companies being upset? Has it been worth Americans feeling that their privacy has been invaded?
Susan Rice: Lesley, it’s been worth what we’ve done to protect the United States. And the fact that we have not had a successful attack on our homeland since 9/11 should not be diminished. But that does not mean that everything we’re doing as of the present ought to be done the same way in the future.

A scandal that spans three presidencies and more is coming to light. In a non-defined conflict against terrorism, we have lost over 6,750 U.S. service members who have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. American blood spilled in wars that do not attack those who attacked us on 9-11. To put this in perspective, fewer died in Pearl Harbor and we nuked the Japanese. We were told after 9-11, that it was al Qaeda, with no other state sponsors. If the allegations prove accurate, 9-11 was nothing less than an act of war by Saudi Arabia.
“It’s classified because if it were released, the people would demand war against Saudi Arabia, and the entire US policy of having the Sunni Arabs price their oil in US dollars in exchange for supporting their dictatorships would fall apart.” – Comment left at Hot Air (Hat Tip: The Radio Patriot)
According to the New York Post, Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch and Republican Rep. Walter Jones have come forward with solid accusations claiming that 28 pages from the 2002 report on 9-11, were not only redacted, they were blank except for an on-going ellipsis. The 28 pages were purportedly removed by President Bush when the report was released, but are now leaking out 12 years later:
If you have ever questioned the official narrative for the September 11th attacks then you have, without a doubt, been dubbed a conspiracy nut by the establishment media and those who hang on their every word.
Like the Warren Commission report on the JFK assassination, the 9/11 Report assembled by a Congressional investigation is unraveling and being revealed for what it really is – nothing more than a cover story.
This is no longer a conspiracy theory… it’s conspiracy fact.

Except for the slaughter of 3,000 Americans.

Alex Wagner questioned why the United States is holding inmates at Guantanamo Bay who have committed “no crimes” Wednesday on MSNBC:
ALEX WAGNER: I just think there’s some other part of reality, which is we cannot and should not as Americans be jailing people indefinitely who have committed no crimes. That is not what this country stands for.
Wagner’s contention is perplexing, considering most liberals believe terrorism should be treated as a crime as opposed to an act of war.
As we look back on the events of September 11, 2001, it is important to consider some simple truths. These truths eluded our government and the nation in the early days after September 11th, 2001, because partisan politicians in Washington, DC, erected walls that kept our law enforcement and intelligence communities from honestly informing each other about the threats to our nation and her citizens. Even more disturbingly, today, little has changed. Twelve years after the initial attacks by al Qaeda on our country, most of the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations are left unaddressed and an administration has been elected to office that refuses to identify the enemy for their common bond.
A horrifying internal memo obtained by WTSP-TV reportedly details an incident which some pilots believe may have been a “dry-run” for terrorists plotting another 9/11-style attack.
Delta Airlines pilot Wolf Koch told the news station that it is “very foolish” to believe that an attack similar to the one that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, could never happen again. In that attack, the deadliest on American soil, more than 3,000 people were killed.
In fact, Koch and other flight crews are worried that terrorists are already planning future attacks.
Via Roll Call:
Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, told reporters Thursday that House leaders expect the Senate to vote on the Syria resolution on Sept. 11.
Reading an email off his phone from his chief of staff, Culberson indicated that Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., thinks the Senate will vote on the Syria resolution next Wednesday.
While the House may not always have the best idea of what is going on in the Senate, “Cantor expects the Senate to vote on 9/11,” Culberson said, parroting the guidance email.
While the Sept. 11 anniversary might seem like a curious day to hold the vote, Culberson thought it was fitting.
“How could it be any clearer? That’s the perfect day to do it,” Culberson said. “They need to defeat it to honor the victims of 9/11 and we will not give aid and comfort to al-Qaida and the psychopaths that carried out the 9/11 attacks.”
That theory, however, may be complicated Senate rules.
If Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., moves to put the resolution on the floor Sept. 9, a test vote on the resolution would likely occur on Sept. 11. Sixty votes would be needed to bypass any blockade to bringing the measure up. If the measure gets past that Wednesday vote, a vote on final passage could occur on Sept. 12, if all senators agreed. However, any senator could attempt to filibuster, which would push a final passage vote to Sept. 14 — one hour after midnight — unless a time agreement could be reached.
The best way to counter bad speech is to oppose it with good speech. Sometimes “speech” can be expressed simply by the number of people who are willing to show up to support a principle. That’s the view that hundreds of bikers (so far) across America have as they prepare to join a “2 MILLION BIKER RIDE TO DC” to counter the planned September 11 “Million Muslim March” on DC.
Did you think nothing could possibly grind America’s self-imposed decline in the faces of patriots in the years following 9/11 more intolerably than the election of excessively Islamophilic Barack Hussein Obama, the opening of the Ground Zero Victory Mosque, and the lighting of the Empire State Building in green to celebrate Islamic holidays? Try this:
We at AMPAC (American [Muslim] Political Action Committee) are planning an historic event for 9.11.13 where one million Muslims will march to Washington D.C. and demand that our civil rights be protected by our government.
The date, obviously, was not chosen randomly.
You may want to protect your eardrums with cotton batting. Here comes some of the ear-splitting whining, at once piteous and menacing, that has characterized Islamic groups since the 9/11 atrocities. Apparently their treatment in the media has not been sufficiently obsequious:
On 9.11.01 our country was forever changed by the horrific events in New York. The entire country was victimized by the acts done on that day. Muslim and Non Muslim alike were traumatized but we as Muslims continue 12 years later to be victimized by being made the villains. To this day every media outlet and anti Islamic organization has committed slanderous and libel statements against us as Muslims and our religion of Islam.
No matter how far you move when they push you, it will never be far enough to prevent them from pushing you further.
These lies told to the American population has [sic] made it impossible for us to do true Dawa. Why do we have to defend our religion while doing Dawa?
Dawa means proselytizing.
Stand with us help us fight the injustices being committed against us.
No word on whether the White House will be lit up green for the occasion.
How’s this for Dawa?
Family Security Matters
Not a day goes by when I venture out to any local shopping or recreational area when I am not confronted by many Muslim women in their traditional hijabs or on occasion full burkas. Sometimes they are alone, but more often than not they are in groups and totally oblivious to the non-Muslims within their midst. Deliberately, they avoid eye contact as they gaze past us.
A dozen years after 19 Muslims murdered 3000 of our American mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters in the name of Islam, we find our American landscape transformed with the practioners of the very ideology responsible for 9/11 and the nearly 22,000 murders committed worldwide by Islamists since that infamous day. Reason dictates that the welcome mat should have been removed, but instead their numbers have greatly increased and as their numbers rise so does the threat from a civilizational jihad as outlined in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.
