    We have a person who in my district said "some people did something" well next Nov. I know something I will be doing, voting that person out of a job. Too many who are supposed to protect us have blood on their hands, hope they can live with themselves.

    Some people of Michigan & Minnesota come to mind.

    There was a mosque in the next town over from me that was celebrating. A lynch mob was heading for them when the police surrounded the mosque to protect them.

    Only thing I could think of that day was my old man worked at the big post office building in downtown Chicago & I wanted him to get the fawk out of there & called him up to tell him.
    I felt anger of the entire event then and still to this day. This country learned nothing and still embraces these animals that carry out crap like this in the name of religion. It disgusts me.

    I wasn't even referring to that level of denial, it just seems with some of the coments even on this board people have forgot why we took the fight off our shores. I'm not a fan of isolationism; history has shown it fails every time. I understand a war weary nation grows tired of endless conflict but we need to remember what happened here and why we go there to prevent it from happening again.

    God bless the thousands of able bodied men and women that flocked to the recruiting stations following the attack. Their generation takes a lot of heat but the Millennials stepped in ready willing and able to serve when war was all but certain.
