America marks 18th anniversary of 9/11  

Exactly 18 years ago, 19 Islamist terrorists crashed four hijacked jetliners into New York’s landmark World Trade Center, the Pentagon building in Washington DC and a field in Pennsylvania. This year, on Tuesday, thousands will gather at the four sites to remember the 2,977 people they murdered, including 265 aboard the planes, in the worst terrorist outrage the world has ever seen. A commemoration ceremony takes place at the 9/11 Memorial plaza at the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan, for family members of the victims of the 2001 and 1993 World Trade Center attacks. Their names are to be read out at the site where the Twin Towers once stood. President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are headed to the two other places where hijacked planes crashed on Sept. 11, 2001: a Pennsylvania field and the Pentagon. Mr. Trump said the field in Shanksville is now a “monument to American defiance.”

The US-led Afghanistan war was declared in the wake of the horrendous attacks. Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who claimed responsibility, was hunted down and killed ten years later in a surprise US special forces raid on his Pakistan hideout.

    God bless America for ever and ever, and keep it safe from the cancer of terrorism and excess liberalism!

    Another brain-dead article highlighting Debka’s uncritical obeisance of that pox on all humanity, the government of the United States.

    Anyone who seriously believes that jet fuel, rather than controlled demolition of thermite, brought down all 3 towers, please go back to your tech-zombie fake reality of device, drug and entertainment addiction. The mark of the beast will be ready for you to plug in soon.

      Quokaka, Morons like you say the 19 9/11 hijackers are STILL ALIVE.

      Where are they? Have they done TV in Fascist Iran or Moscow?

      No. Because they are as Dead as your Brain.

      Stick some Thermite up your Azz.
