Remembering 9/11

On the anniversary of the attack on our nation by Islamomaniacs, let us remember who our enemies are.

Al-Qaeda has issued a new video featuring Waleed al-Shehri, a Saudi terrorist whose job was to threaten passengers aboard Flight 11 while Mohammad Atta was flying it into the first of the Twin Towers.

"We shall come at you from your front and back, your right and left,” al-Shehri says in the tape.

“As for our own fortune, it is not in this world,” he rants.

“And we are not competing with you for this world, because it does not equal in Allah’s eyes the wing of a mosquito.”

This are the words of our crazed enemy outside the gates of freedom. Now let us review some other words.

Senator Dick Durbin accused General David Petraeus of “carefully manipulating the statistics” to convince people “that violence in Iraq is decreasing and thus the surge is working.” Majority Leader Harry Reid said Petraeus has “made a number of statements over the years that have not proven to be factual.”

Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Tom Lantos told Petraeus and Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker, "We and the American people already know that the situation in Iraq is grim and the growing majority of this Congress and of the American people want our troops out." And he made clear nothing Petraeus could say would change his mind.

Last week House Speaker Nancy Pelosi referred to the Petraeus-Crocker report as "The Bush Report."

Those, friends, are the words of the equally dangerous and crazed enemy within the confines.

Today, as we remember the senseless murders of many of our fellow citizens, let us resolve to continue to hunt down and deliver justice to our enemies, both foreign and domestic.
