The moment of silence was originally slotted to take place at 9:37 AM — the time at which the Pentagon was attacked on September 11 — but ended up taking place a few minutes early.

America deserves the truth about the Saudis and 9/11

The New York Post Editorial Board

It’s time for President Obama to declassify the 28 sealed pages of the 9/11 Commission Report — the section that details the Saudi role in the attacks. There’s no good reason to continue keeping the American people in the dark about the report, which dates to 2002.

Donald Trump Took $150,000 After 9/11 Because He Was A “Small Business” Owner

streiff, RedState

This simply goes to Trump’s sense of entitlement. Money for small businesses affected by 9/11? Entitled. He took this grant money, and I’m sure he’d tell you that $150K is chump change, because he could. His business wasn’t harmed. He didn’t need it. But he wanted it.

Ground Zero Cross Must Stand

J. Randy Forbes, National Review

The “9/11 Cross” should remain, as should the other crosses that memorialize our war dead. And too bad if it offends atheists.

Obama’s Treasonous Squandering of American Power

It took sixty-nine years to build America into the world's only superpower; it has taken Obama less than six to flippantly throwaway America’s national influence and unilaterally disarm America through a conscious and treasonous hollowing-out of America’s military capability. Sign and share the petition to impeach Barack Obama.

The Administration’s Bad Case for a Bad War in Syria

War is not just another policy option.  The American people and their representatives need to insist that Washington’s chief responsibility is to defend America.  Whatever the state of the Assad regime’s chemical weapons, the U.S. should stay out of Syria’s tragic civil war.

Lessons of 9/11 Lost in Political Correctness

America is full of men and women who have broad shoulders and stout hearts, but they are not in ascendancy today. Our nation is run by the kind of people who will search an octogenarian from Minnesota before she boards a plane, but will allow the likes of Major Nidal Hassan to shield his evil with a whisper-thin patina of faith.

Tea Party and James Madison Defeat Obama on Syria

It says a lot about the political potency of the alliance of conservative and libertarian-minded voters that Obama would rather give the credit for stopping a war of choice in Syria to the Russians, than admit that he, and his neo con Republican allies were defeated by the everyday citizens of the Tea Party and the wisdom of James Madison.

Bombing Muslims Won't Stop al-Qaeda

Patrick Buchanan, American Conservative

Bush's war resulted in what war opponents had predicted: an al-Qaeda that has grown and is now “on steroids.”
