The Years of Shame
Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued?
Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd.
What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. The atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons.
A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity?
The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it.
I’m not going to allow comments on this post, for obvious reasons.

After the attacks on 9/11, America became a far more security conscious nation. There were real enemies we had to fear, who could [...]
THE FIRST TIME I SAW ISRAELI PLANES WAS IN THE NEGEV IN 1950 AND MY KID BROTHER JUMPED UP AND DOWN SAYING “JEWISH PLANES, JEWISH PLANES” THAT WAS QUITE A FEELING SO CLOSE ON THE HELLS OF THE SHOAH….ENJOY THESE PICTURES OF “JEWISH SUBMARINES”…..RSK
The day the Twin Towers collapsed in Manhattan, September 11, 2001, IDF submarine “Leviathan” of the advanced Dolphin model was on a training sail somewhere at sea – the exact location of Israel’s submarines will always remain classified, even dozens of years after the fact.
At one point, the submarine rose to the surface to take a break. The sub’s commander, then-Lt. Colonel Oded, looked through the periscope and saw a calm, blue sea. However, one crew member soon informed him that he just saw the New York towers collapsing on television. Oded’s first reaction was laughter: What kind of movie are you watching there? How could the Twin Towers collapse? Yet soon after, the official announcement arrived from Israel.

As with other earth-shattering events, the moment and place of learning the dread news of September 11, 2001 is etched into everyone’s memory. Equally well etched into [...]
