Paging Liberal Moonbats . . .

Maybe you should be reading this. After all, it was broadcast on the libtard Mother Ship:

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Supreme Court refused to block the pending transfer of an accused terrorist held by the U.S. military, despite his fears of being tortured if he is sent back to his home country of Algeria.

Ahmed Belbacha has been incarcerated at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for five years. He has tried to keep himself detained because he said he fears being tortured by the Algerian government if he goes home.

The justices, in a one-sentence order, denied his emergency request for a stay to any pending release. (H/T - RT)

But, wait a minute. I thought we were torturing the detainees at Guantanamo? I thought we were violating their civil rights on a daily basis? I thought we were sending them to bed without their supper? So, why would any detainee volunteer to stay there under these barbaric conditions? Mr. Reid, Ms. Pelosi, would you care to enlighten us?

I guess Rush was right: Club Gitmo is the terrorists' break from the stress of jihad.

Holocaust Denier to Host 9/11 Accountability Conference

Yes, my headline is correct, as wacky as it seems. Pat over at Screw Loose Change has details. The Phoenix New Times is also on the story.

On Universities and 9/11

This is an excellent editorial by Harvey Mansfield (in the Boston Globe!), entitled "At universities, little learned from 9/11." An excerpt:

Sept. 11 was a stunning blow to multiculturalism. The attacks showed that we have enemies who hate us because they hate both our principles and our practices. They despise the way we live not because we do not live up to our principles of freedom, democracy, and toleration, but because we do. They do not think we are multicultural; they believe we have one culture, and they mean to do away with it.

The feminists at Harvard seek to remove every vestige of patriarchy in America, but they have said almost nothing about the complete dismissal of women's rights by radical Islam. To do so would be to attack Islamic culture, and according to multiculturalism, every culture is equal and none is evil. They forsake women in societies that repudiate women's rights and direct their complaints to societies that believe in women's rights. Of course it's easier to complain to someone who listens to you and doesn't immediately proceed to slit your throat. No sign of any rethinking of feminism has appeared in the universities where it flourishes.

Read the whole thing.

9/11 Tribute Post: Louis Steven Inghilterra

This post is a part of the 2,996 Project, organized by Dale Roe. Click here to read memorial posts dedicated to other victims. *This post will stay at the top of the page for the entire day...scroll down for new entries.*

On the morning of September 11, 2001, Louis Steven Inghilterra arrived at his office on the 95th floor of Tower 2 of the World Trade Center. He was the senior vice president and treasurer of the Fiduciary Trust Company, and made the 20-mile commute from New Castle, NY to lower Manhattan daily. He was not to know that within hours he and nearly 3,000 others would lose their lives in an attack that would change the course of history.

Inghilterra left behind his wife Diane, his son (now 7) Louis Sam, as well as his mother, sister and niece.

According to this online memorial by his wife Diane, Louis was born in Brooklyn and raised in Queens. At the age of 12, he lost his father to cancer. Despite this early tragedy Louis had a zest for life, showing a love for books and music. In fact, he and some friends organized a band (in which Louis played guitar), and performed in nightclubs and at weddings during their college years.

As an adult, Louis's cherished pastimes became a special connection with his son, Louis Sam, who never tired of listening to music and reading with his father.

Co-workers say Louis was also a man dedicated to excellence at his chosen profession. He was a teacher who shared his knowledge willingly. He was a friend, interested not only in the workplace successes of those who worked for him, but in their personal lives as well.

Louis Steven Inghilterra: son, brother, husband, father, co-worker, friend, died senselessly five years ago today. See his face...remember his name. Honor his memory and those of the others who died that day. We surely owe them that much.

Never Forget

This was an act of war:







There are some who say it is insensitive to show these images. That it's too early for movies like United 93 and World Trade Center. I was not in New York or Pennsylvania that day, so I was not an eyewitness. But the tragedy was, and is, shared by all Americans. The rest of the world paid us lip service, giving platitudes like, "We are all Americans now." Shortly thereafter, however, it was back to business as usual, blaming us for all the world's ills. So much for solidarity.

As George Santayana said, "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." We begin by remembering.

Others remembering today: Mrs. Media Matters, Moonbattery, Mein Blogovault, Lifelike Pundits, Brainster, Geosciblog, In The Right Place, Tinkerty Tonk, And You Thought You Were Cranky?

Michelle Malkin has several excellent posts in remembrance of the day.

ABC's The Path to 9/11

I just finished watching the first installment of the ABC miniseries The Path to 9/11.

First off, kudos to ABC for not giving in to the bullying of Bill Clinton and the Democrats. Yes, some of the "offending" scenes were cut, such as Sandy "Papers Down My Pants" Berger saying he could not give authorization for US agents to capture Osama bin Laden when they had him in their clutches...but what was left certainly looked damning enough. Good...let him squirm some more.

I think the documentary is extremely well done. I had knots in my stomach for much of it...especially when an informant who didn't agree with killing innocent people in the name of jihad was working with Americans to take down Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

The knots gave way to chills in the last few minutes, when the film turned to terrorists on one of the 9/11 flights prepare to take the plane down.

Yes, the movie is just that: a movie. It's a dramatazation, not a documentary. We cannot take it at face value if we want all the hard, cold facts. However, I feel it gives a definite flavor for the years leading up to 9/11: intelligence agencies hamstrung by bureaucratic red tape; officials afraid to make a decision for fear of being politically finished; a general failure by many involved to see the big picture.

Some of the most powerful scenes were those of Muslims (presumably in Afghanistan) hanging and burning then-President Clinton in effigy, shooting at a movie screen upon one of his speeches was being shown, calling Clinton "Satan." It shows the burning hatred these people had toward America before President George W. Bush took office. It doesn't matter who was or is sitting in the Oval Office. While the rest of the world was fawning over Bill Clinton, Islamic fascists hated him simply because he was then the president of the United States, a country they have designated as evil and deserving of conquest...or annhialation.

The best line in the film was just after the mission to capture bin Laden in Afghanistan was aborted. Ahmad Shah Massoud, the Afghan anti-Taliban opposition leader, said to the American operative, "Are there any men left in Washington? Or are they all cowards?"

I will definitely be watching the second installment tomorrow.

Michelle Malkin, Ed Driscoll and Glenn Reynolds have more.

As 9/11 5th Remembrance Approaches...

In the days leading up to the fifth remembrance of 9/11, we are reminded of how much we are hated by many in the world. Islamic fascists hate us simply because we exist; others despise us because they envy us our wealth, power and freedom.

Yet all is not lost. The following three essays are examples of people who don't hate us and are not afraid to say why. The first is a radio address by Canadian Gordon Sinclair back in 1973, the second is a 2001 Romanian editorial by Cornel Nicorestu, and the third is a British editorial by journalist Tony Parsons in 2002.

They may be minority views, but they sure make me feel good. Be sure to pass them on!

2,996 Project

For those of you who are not aware, the 2,996 Project is a special blogburst planned for the upcoming fifth anniversary of 9/11. Literally thousands of bloggers have signed up (including yours truly) to commemorate the lives of those who died at the hands of Islamic fascists on that terrible day. (I wrote my post several days ago, and will activate it first thing next Monday.)

Michelle Malkin points out the difference between those of us who are taking part in this worthy blog event, and what the folks over at the Democratic Underground have planned.

Go now to see. Prepare to be disgusted.

Muslim Views of 9/11 Attacks

This graph shows gives us a better idea of what Muslims think of the 9/11 attacks and who was responsible for them:

No big surprises there...

Interestingly enough, however, the poll has a majority of Muslims polled saying Westerners are respectful of women. Click on the link above for these and other findings.
