Never Forget to Remember



On the 4th Anniversary of September 11th, I have only to say:

"NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER"

Four years ago I was, like a lot of people, just sitting down to my desk at work. As it’s part of my job I checked the headlines on on the internet, and saw initial reports that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center.

My first thought like a lot of people was ‘probably’ a small aircraft.



It was about 8:55am, As we know, it wasn't a small aircraft

That day lives in my memory like so many others in my life, like the assassination of President Kennedy, Martin Luther King (on my birthday), Robert F. Kennedy and the Challenger disaster.

Yet September 11th, 2001, was more “personal” than the others, it was more close to the heart.

As the day unfolded I, - especially having been a career soldier, remember the swelling of immediate rage. I wanted to join back up – if only I could with what was left of my back – and get those bastards – whoever they were.

As the days, weeks unfolded I was never more proud to be an American as I drove to work everyday and noticed the flags on cars – the patriotism so thick, so sweet in the air.

Then as the weeks turned into months things changed. The flags came down. The psychologists told the TV networks, “Stop showing the pictures,…it will adversely affect people.” As time when on...

People forgot – to remember.

We should never forget the horror, the pictures, the pain, the suffering, the shock, the suprise, the anger and the resolve never to let it happen again.





For all the maligning of President Bush, it was he who stood on a heap of rubble four years ago and told the world that this act would not go unpunished. It didn't.

Yet many would have us "give up" our vigilance and have us "forget to remember". Damn them. Not I, not for a minute.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
