On Sept. 11, New York will transit from its anchorage in the Hudson River to a location within sight of the World Trade Center. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Randall A. Clinton)
TEN years after the September 11 attacks we can say we're winning the war on Islamist terrorism.
"Absent the sponsorship of al-Qaida's material sponsors and supporters, including the defendants named herein, al-Qaida would not have possessed the capacity to conceive, plan and execute the September 11th attacks."
Paul Kelly, Editor-at-large EVEN here, September 11 has left a lasting legacy, including deeper ties with the US.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
