New World Trade Center Images Released Today: Just In Case You Like to Forget

Deadly: A total of seven World Trade Centre buildings were destroyed that day, killing 2,752 people.

[Click to enlarge]

SO WHY ARE WE SEEING THEM NOW? After 9/11 the U.S.'s National Institute of Standards and Technology collected images from amateur, professional and freelance photographers as part of its investigation into the collapse of the World Trade Centre. It completed its research in 2005. In the summer of last year, ABC saw that NIST was asking the photographers' permission to release the images and filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act to get access to them. The images seen here are ones taken by NYPD helicopters and come from the 2,779 pictures supplied on nine CDs to the news organisation. -- More chilling images at New World Trade Center 9/11 aerial images from ABC News | Mail Online
I was standing on the Brooklyn Heights Promanade, less than a mile away, when this happened. At times I think I'll get over it, get beyond it, move on.... but I never do. And I pray I never will.

Anyone - public official or private citizen - who tries to convince you this sort of thing is over, is trying to get you and your loved ones killed. You need to get in their face and back them down.

No. Real Americans will never get over this.

The others play the odds that their Dhimmi ideas won't kill them.

Get over it? No. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not in this lifetime. Not ever. Anyone who has gotten over it isn't worth the paper they wipe their asses with. Andrew Sullivan is over it. Charles Johnson is over it. I'll be over it on the day when mecca is a sheet of radioactive glass. Maybe.

About a year ago national NPR reporter, Brooke Gladstone, visited Seattle and stopped by the local feed (KUOW) for an interview; during the interview she commented about another NPR reporter and listing his positive points said"...and he's gotten over 9/11..." I couldn't believe what I was hearing. The bottomless vanity and heartlessness of the NPR gang is unfathomable.

A lot of people have "moved on"...in fact, they've moved on so far that I bet a devout Muslim could go on a military base, shoot 43 people, killing 13 of them and the Moved-On would actually get mad if you even suggested that it might be an act of terrorism.

Nah, too outlandish. That would never happen.

And never forget that 9/11 was the quintessential act of islamic warfare: commit the filthiest, cruelest, and most vile crimes imaginable against innocents. Far from being an act of disgrace, 9/11 was, and is a source of honor and pride in the eyes of the ummah. I will not forget the footage of the palestinians dancing in the streets as the towers crumbled. Nor will I lose the desire to see them nuked off the planet.

JW still mad as hell M

Oh, I forgot...the guy could be screaming Alluah Ackbar during the shooting and they'd still dismiss it.

Oh, but what if the guy stood up in front of a professional organization and gave a presentation explaining the virtues of Sharia Law and describing what he'd like to do to persecute infidels.

Even then, I bet the Move-Ons would still look the other way and fight the real threats to the world like Childhood obesity and Global Warming...after they dig themselves out of 4 foot deep snowbanks.

Reading the comments at the Mail online just made my head want to explode. I can't move on. Look at the picture of what has risen from the ashes thus far...a pathetic gesture, but I am sure they are trying. It really pisses me off when the truthers come out and blame everyone in the government and ignore the Islamofascistis what done the deed. The truth was incinerated in those attacks, and I will never sing kumbaya. Ever.

I'm with you but I don't think you go far enough. I hope you are right in your implication - that the war will be over when there is a 200-foot-deep hole in Saudi Arabia and the Kaaba is dust, smoke and ash blowing on the wind - but unfortunately I think you are wrong.

I think that the war will be over when every mosque, madrasa, Islamic cemetery and Islamic so-called university is rubble; when every copy bar one or two of the Koran is ash; when to Mecca are added Medina, Qom, Tehran, Cairo, Istanbul, Dacca, Damascus, Jeddah, Riyadh, Aden, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur...

That's when the 1350-year war will be over.

Obviously enough people were "over it" to the point of electing a manchurian who seems to want to put a bulls-eye back on NYC. These photos bring home the cluelessness, the absence of grey matter, of the dangerous megalomaniac-in-chief in wanting to move the terror trials on our soil.

"I will not forget the footage of the palestinians dancing in the streets"

They celebrated in New York, too.

If anyone else had the misfortune to see "2012", all I could see in it was porno for the enemies of Western civilization. How anyone could have made it and called it 'entertainment'? It was 9/11 writ large, with every edifice of the West falling into dust. Horror after horror. The makers clearly thought the world was "over it", to the point where the death of millions of human beings is background to the insipid storyline. It wouldn't surprise me to know it's "must see" in the madrassas.
But the dishonest director knew that at least one segment of the world wasn't "over it", because he admitted he would have been crazy to show the destruction of Mecca. He didn't want to die! At least he had the choice: the people in those planes, in those towers, and at the Pentagon had none.

However, in the words of an acquaintance, she just wants to have her happy life, so lets put all this unpleasantness in the past. It seems as though a lot of the West agrees.

"Democracy is finished in England. It may be here," stated Ambassador Joseph Kennedy in the Boston Globe of November 10, 1940. He was with Hitler before he was against him.

Remember folks, you are too stupid to take care of yourselves. That's why the Statists, Nazi's, Progressives, Liberals, Democrats, Republicans, Socialists, Communists, or whatever the Party du jour, will get as many voters sucking off their teat as possible,

They are over it.

I have it on my side bar - a slide show - I see it every day. Including the Palestinians cheering. They want a show down? I see no reason not to give them one - on my terms.

You know where I stand: We should drop arabic leaflets send emails,broadcast tv signals etc etc all over the arabic world as follows:

You got us good. It was an act of war. We reserve the right to preemptively defend ourselves from this point forward.

We reserve the right to overreact in a way you will not like. We will reduce the area these type of attacks are being planned from to smoking craters.

So,if you know any of your muslim brothers who are planning to do anything like this, you'd better stop them, turn them in, or run away. Fair warning.

P.S. We have no problem with the rest of you.

The People of the U.S.A

I've rarely found a better blog on the Internet. Thanks Gerard for all you do.

Do you really believe 500 gallons of jet fuel (kerosene) could cause this much destruction? 19 amateur pilots could hijack planes using razor blades? Que bono?

Posted by: Russ Hallberg at March 23, 2011 12:57 AM

You don't actually know the amount of jet fuel carried by jetliners, do you?

Only a complete and total pathological follower would ever buy the official bullshit story of 9/11. What part of FREE FALL SPEED dont you understand? Falling concrete does not turn itself into dust. What the fuc# school did you learn physics at? Wake up America. You are asleep and your country is dying.

[And now I shall take my remaining time here to go fuck myself now that my brain has turned to dust.]
