Six Years On

  1
From Agnus Dei at YouTube set to Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings

Osama Bin Laden admitted he ordered the 9/11 attacks  by nineteen Islamic terrorists who commandeered four commercial jet airliners, deliberately crashing two into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon, and one intended for the US Capitol building, United Airlines Flight 93, after a revolt by the passengers,  crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Pennsylvania.

Each year on the anniversary, another video of one of the suicide bombers is released by Al Queda.  This year Bin Laden called for a caravan of martyrs.

Yet a recent Zogby poll reveals that 42% of Democrats think Bush either caused the 9/11 attacks or let them happen.

Men stumble over the truth from time to time, but most pick themselves up and
hurry off as if nothing happened." 
Winston Churchill
