Forgotten Anniversary

We confess - this one even slipped our minds (via Michelle Malkin):
  • Lawhawk reminds us that today is the 14th anniversary of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. We always hear "Never forget." But how many still remember anymore?

    And how many have really learned?

Yesterday was the anniversary. And we saw just about zero coverage anywhere. What should have been a wake up call was just another blip that went unrecognized for years and years.

Michelle also has a very haunting video some tourists took of an elevator ride to the observation deck of one of the towers. The video shows the floor counter moving up to 107 and the doors opening to a long hallway that leads to a number of windows through which you can see New York City. Then the camera pans downward and we couldn't help thinking that 8 years later, that was the last view that hundreds of people had prior to jumping. Haunting.

Yea but Clinton, Gore & crew charged and imprisioned several people for this attack. We sure showed those terrorists that we ain't going to take this sh*t!(yea right)
Bush is actually doing a good job, at least he took the fight to THEM.U'd think the lesbo-femanazis and the other women's groups would at least give GW a thumbs up for freeing millions of Afgan women from the rule of the Taliban.
I remember alot of talk under Clinton/Gore..........

1993 was the proof in the pudding that when alQueda picks a target they don't stop until they've completed their mission. It took another 8 years to make those towers fall but they were/are steadfast in their convictions. Are we?

9/11 took 6 years to plan at a whopping cost of $500,000. We are in the window for another devistating attack and the only thing we can do is wait. "If" is no longer on the table. It's simply a matter of when and where: their choice.

Remember? The American public prides itself on its ability to forget. Democrat? Repubulican? Who cares? alQueda sure Doesn't.

Be safe my brothers and sisters in arms-both here and abroad. Our enemy fears not the wrath of this sleeping giant. So kick the shit out of them in our streets and give them what they want and understand...violence.

Forgotten? So be it but never forgiven.

I agree with some of what you say; but I dont think Clinton had the mandate after the 93 attack to go in Afganistan like GW did after 2001.
As far as honoring GW (and the troops), your right. Even the artsy folks were bitch'n how something has to be done about the Taliban after they blew up those ancient Buddist statues carved into the mountains. Then liberals were on the talk shows throughout the 90s about the oppressed women under the Taliban,and how WE must do something.
You would think that those feminists and the liberal Hollywood types would have at least honored the troops for freeing those women.
Its all about getting back at the right for what was done to Bill and his blowjob incident.
And all of this to belittle the significancy of Bush's presidency.

It's a shame how everyone really does forget. For my family though, we don't. My cousin, Michael was in the building at the time of the 1993 bombing. He was very lucky to make it out alive.

He didn't stick around much longer after that. He and his wife packed up and moved to Florida.

The allied terrorist groups are highly trained and are very dedicated to their misguided beliefs,which is fueled by their hatred.The only way to prevent or stop them is to identify,locate,and destroy them.America will probably be attacked within the the next year.Over a period of 5 years,several hundred Al Qaeda members were infiltrated into the USA.These terrorists were never identified or located by any law enforcement or intelligence agencies.This activity took place from 1993 until 1998.It is unknown how many more were infiltrated after 1998.
