I had friends in Tower 2 who were killed.
A buddy of mine who then worked for the New York Police Department received the Medal of Valor for pulling people out of Tower 2 and nearly lost his life.
And I remember the television footage of Muslims cheering worldwide.
On 9/12/2001, NOBODY in America would have thought that 9 years later a Super Mosque would be approved by the City of New York two blocks from the site of the (still ruined) World Trade Center.
On 9/12/2001, NOBODY in America could have imagined that a utopian socialist/closet Muslim named barack hussein obama would be President of the United States.
On 9/12/2001, NOBODY would have thought that the events of the day before (9/11) would have been reduced to a day, when according to barack hussein obama, we would honor community organizers. (his statements last year) -- Not a day of remembering the events of September 11th, but a watered down version of that remembrance -- because as obama put it in his book,

On 8/7/2010, we are winding down a war that turned out to be a war against ISLAMIC Extremists in Iraq. (though it started out as a war to topple the Baathist regime of Hussein - not the US President, the other Hussein).
On 8/7/2010, we have over 100,000 soldiers under arms fighting a war against RADICAL ISLAM in Afghanistan. Whether or not you agree with the war itself, you can't dispute the fact.
Some of you do not remember.
Some of you don't care that Americans die nearly every day in a war we are fighting against RADICAL ISLAM.
