Default 9/11 Twelve Years Later



This is my yearly tribute. I love this because it's shot down in the heart of Ground Zero.

May we never forget. Glad I missed Ovomit's speech it was probably as plastic and fake as he is!

The Flight 93 victims were not the only passengers who tried to stop evil that day

I was not aware until today of how one passenger on AA Flight 11 tried to fight the hijackers

Flight 11 was the first of four planes to be hijacked the day of the attacks, killing everyone on board and hundreds more when it caused the collapse of the North Tower. But before any of the horror unfolded that day, a little-known act of heroism is likely to have taken place on Flight 11 when Lewin—an Israeli-American who served in one of the most elite counterterrorism units of the Israel Defense Force (IDF)—rose from his seat and engaged in a struggle with one of the terrorists to try to thwart the hijacking. During the struggle Lewin was killed, making him the very first victim of the 9/11 attacks.

Until now, Lewin’s story has remained untold—mainly out of respect for friends and family who closely guarded their memories of the brilliant commando-turned computer scientist. In addition, the official reports of what happened on Flight 11 were, for some time, conflicting and confusing. A memo mistakenly released by the Federal Aviation Administration stated that terrorist Satam al-Suqami shot and killed Lewin with a single bullet around 9:20 a.m. (obviously inaccurate, as the plane crashed at 8:46 a.m.). But almost as soon as the memo was leaked, FAA officials claimed it was written in error and that Lewin had been stabbed, not shot. The 9/11 Commission concurred in its final report, issued four years later, offering a more detailed summary: Based on dozens of interviews with those who spoke with two of the plane’s flight attendants during the hijacking, the commission determined that al-Suqami most likely killed Lewin by slashing his throat from behind as he attempted, single-handedly, to try to stop the hijacking. The time of his death was reported to be somewhere between 8:15 and 8:20 a.m.

We all remember in our own way. Nothing quite honors those memories like free food



FYI - AA flight 11 hit the North Tower at 8:46 a.m. EDT

I guess there was not enough money in the food budget to serve free coffee and muffins from 8:45 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. (North Tower collapsed at 10:28 a.m.)

One thing I'm proud of up here is we pay our respects too. Moment(s) of silence, top news story, respectful posters, etc. are everywhere for this week honestly.

Respectful posters huh? Wish we could say the same down her.

Its amazing how's the OP could ruin her very own thread with the vile and disgusting commentary talking about vomit in a thread that is supposed to be about remembering 3000 people who were tragically murdered.smh

I can't remember the last time I witnessed something so tacky and classless.

Probably the last time you looked in a mirror.


But seriously, you make a really good point. There's no place for that in a thread about remembering the victims of 9/11.




On a more lighthearted note:

Thank you. I thought the exact same thing when I read that comment. It's getting old and there's no place for it today of all days.

I typically spend the entire evening watching all the documentary s on discovery and the history channels. It lookslike three of the most detailed and comprehensive ones aren't showing this evening.

120 minutes replays the news coverage in its entirety as it happened from the first strike on the tower until the final collapse. It is litter ally like re living that day.

The best most bone chilling footage from you inside the towers and that day was from the two french brother s who happened to be staying with ladder co nine I believe and filming an hour unrelated documentary of their daily lives.The sound of the tower collapse as they were underground and susubsequent life alert beepers of all the fallen firemen chirping is almost enough to make you cry.

There's another one that compiles all the amateur footage and the accounts of those who shot it. Breath taking. Anatomy of a collapse is also highly recommended. All of these are on YouTube. Tonight they are showing the 2011 interview with gee dubya and he recounts what he was feeling on that day. The door is wide open to offer commentary but I stood by my president that day and the days that followed. God bless those who brought that sick piece of shit bin laden to the swift justice he deserved.

With the passage of time it unfortunately becomes something that recedes into the background unless it is a big anniversary.

My guess is the 50th anniversary of JFK getting killed this November is going to get 5 star coverage. I was a young kid when that happened and it is the only event in my lifetime that for me compares to the shock of 9-11.
