AMERICANS ARE FACTING "THE TEST OF OUR TIMES --- AMERICA UNDER SIEGE...AND HOW WE CAN BE SAFE AGAIN"!!!
"But the passengers aboard United 93 knew, it appeared that a suicde bomber was aboard. Of the four men seated in the first-class section ---Saeed al-Ghamdi, Ahmed al-Nami, Ahmad al-Haznawi, and Ziad Jarrah --- who conspired to take over the cockpit by using their box cutters and knives, one also had a device strapped to his his body. From the cockpit, Jarrah, the native of Lebanon who sat in the pilot's seat after the attack on the cockpit crew, told the thirty-seven passengers over the intercom,
'Ladies and gentleman, ladies and gentleman. Hear the captain. Please sit down, keep remaining seating. We have bomb on board, so sit.'
The other three hijackers on United 93 --- as were most of the nineteen involved that morning --- were Saudi Arabians. But to the passengers flying over Pennsylvania, such distinctions were pointless.
As the flight progressed --- as Jarrah turned the plane south and then southeast over Pennsylvania and toward the nation's capital--- many aboard made emergency calls to relatives and friends using cell phones...
Armed with information after calling their loved ones, discovering what had transpired, and knowing their fate was all be certain, they decided their deaths wouldn't be in vain. In spite of the absolute whore and fear --- what a monstrous emotional hurdle to overcome --- they harnessed the energy, the committment, and the will to fight back."
"I stood there stone-faced, but my insides were churning. I thought of my own kids, and thousands of other children, who had by then viewed those whore's images from the Twin Towers over and over. Many thoughts and images came to mind. I knew that, on the one hand, I had to acknowledge what had happened and how vulnerable we all felt, but on the other it was important to offer some sense of comfort, to affirm that in time we'd recover from this, and JUSTICE WOULD BE DONE. I stood silently in front of the cameras for about fifteen seconds---which in television terms is almost a lifetime. (Later aides told me that they thought they saw me tear up for the first time.) I responded, finally, more in terms of a dad than a governor:
'It's pretty difficult to explain to your kids that there are people in the world who would kill innocent men, women, and children and subject them to the enormous terror associated with these events to advance a cause. There's nobody that's claimed, as I understand to date, responsibility for these acts. Whether they do or not, WE WILL FIND THEM.'"
Valerie Jarrett's daughter, a federal U.S. district clerk, and Michelle Obama's law firm, Sidley Austin and Brown, proceeded to obstruct justice in a federal civil lawsuit and terminate American women's parental rights at a local Cook County Courthouse with Mideastern Terrorists while proceeding to internationally traffic American women and their children and continued to plot and commit more acts of terror, including the bombing of Mumbai.
A great book, everyone should read!!!
