ANALYZING THE WAKE OF 9-11

     Today is the 11th anniversary of the greatest act of war ever perpetrated on American soil from a foreign enemy. Where have we come? What have we accomplished? What is the status of that enemy today? Have there been any winners and losers?

     Sadly, so many of us, including the media, are caught up in minutia and never step back to see the big picture. Sure we’ve engaged two wars and now the 2001 architect of that attack has been killed, but has that changed the direction of the enemy? Have we put a dent into the overall march toward conquest on the part of radical Islamists? Have we won the war?

     I think not.

     This has been a war in which the enemy is far more brilliant than we are. Americans and western societies think small. We think of war in terms of tanks, bombs, planes, ships and guns. We think of an enemy as an army led by a supreme commander – a nation’s leader – and when we destroy that leader, the war is over.

     This has not happened. The death of Osama Bin Laden does not alter the direction of our enemy one iota. While he may have been a top soldier, he is not the Hitler, nor the Mussolini, nor the Emperor of Imperial Japan. He was Tojo. He was Field Marshal Rommel. He carried out a mission.

     So who is the leader of the enemy that attacked us on 9/11? Who is it that we would have to destroy to call this war over?

     And why isn’t this war over?

     The leader is the purveyor of Jihad. It is the omnipotent head of an ideology which has called for Islam to conquer the world by any means possible, whether through violence or through peaceful deceit. They have not lost, we have not won. In truth, radical Islam has made greater gains in the last eleven years than any time since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. The purveyor of Jihad, in the minds of radical Islamists, is Allah. His messenger is the Prophet Muhammed.

     As a career detective, my mentors taught me, and I later taught others, never lose sight of the basic evidence. Sweep away the clouds and mist and always cut to the core evidence. There lies the truth. It never changes.

     A large faction of Islam has been waging Jihad since the death of Muhammed for that very purpose, to eventually establish Islam as the only religion on earth. While technology has changed, the pursuit of those goals have not wavered in 1400 years.

     Terrorists are not our enemy. They are merely the armed soldiers of our enemy.

     We began losing this war the day President G.W. Bush stood side by side with our enemies in the national cathedral just days after the attack and declared Islam “is a religion of peace.” Thus, the birth of political correctness, as it pertained to radical Islam. He stood with Imam, Muzammil H. Siddiqi who, just a year earlier had participated in an anti-American rally outside the White House demanding American alliance with the Palestinians against the Jews or face the wrath of Allah.

     Of course, Bush didn’t own up to the first American blunder just two days after 9/11. While American bodies were still smoldering at ground zero, our government secretly escorted and ushered the departure of 142 Saudi nationals – Islamist men – from American soil back to their homeland, without thorough investigation. This, while all airports were officially closed. Remember, fifteen of the nineteen terrorists were Saudis.

     So instead of calling this a war against radical Islam, the president coined a phrase: “War on Terror” which is designed to divert our attention from naming the real enemy. There is no such thing as a war against a tactic.      

     We are so easily led.

     The president sent our troops off to two wars. More than 6,200 American bodies later, Iraqis are in turmoil with insurgents killing hundreds by the dayand month. Saddam Hussein may be gone, but Iraqi Christians are now being slaughtered without his protection. Afghanistan, meanwhile, is months away from reverting back to Taliban rule since we have stupidly forecast our departure date to the enemy.

     It gets worse.

     Remember the source of the 9/11 attacks. The next president we elected had roots in Islam, technically born a Muslim with two Muslim fathers and five years of Islamic indoctrination in Indonesia as a child. His first college roommates were Islamists and his first overseas vacation as a student was Islamic Pakistan where American visas were not being accepted in 1981. (Certainly cause for inquisition)  Clearly, he was embraced. No sooner than being elected president, his first major speech was an international apology to Islam in Egypt declaring Islam a major part of the American experience.

     Could the Islamist world been any happier?

     While the president is authorizing drone-based pot shots at terrorists, Islam has enjoyed a welcome mat into the White House like never before, with elaborate Ramadan dinners including people from the Muslim Brotherhood. Islamists are now employed in key positions in the U.S. government, including the Homeland Security Department, the State Department and the White House.

     Ironically, our government aided and abetted the removal our strongest Muslim ally in the middle east, (Mubarak) who had maintained a peace treaty with Israel. Now, with our help, the Muslim Brotherhood has assumed power. We engaged in unauthorized military action in Libya to help engineer the killing of Ghadaffi, only to have the Muslim Brotherhood now on the cusp of power in that country. Tunisia, whose uprising we supported, is overrun by the power block of the Muslim Brotherhood.      

     Get the picture yet?

     Meanwhile, Iran’s nuclear build-up continues. But despite his support of all the other uprisings, our president remained mute when Iranian demonstrators engaged in uprisings in their country, hoping for support from America. Didn’t happen. No drones there. No military action there.

     It was no surprise when our president openly called for Israel to return its borders to 1967 positions, music to the ears of the Muslim Brotherhood. He, and everyone, knows that would be tantamount to national suicide for that tiny country we call our ally. Yet, we hear no condemnation from this president about the constant barrage of rockets into Israel by Hamas.

    Between the president and the state department, we’re back at it again, kissing the ass of our enemies. Just five months ago, our president authorized $1.5 billion of our tax dollars to the new government of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. Never mind, that Christian coptics and their churches – once protected by Mubarak – fleeing the country or being murdered. The last synagogue of Egypt was recently shut down. Things are really looking up for democracy and freedom all right.

     The Muslim Brotherhood must be laughing their guts out behind closed doors, while massaging American politicians in front of the cameras.

     So, are we better off in this war today?

     As an electorate we are not only gullible, we are dumb as dirt. We believe all the baloney they espouse before the cameras to get elected, the charisma, the promises, the images, and then they go about with a stealth agenda behind closed doors.

     When we began sending troops to the Mideast, the enemy started invading our country through the back doors, under the radar. They still are.

     They have poured multi-billions of petro-dollars into our banks, universities, prisons and political coffers. All that is not to improve America, it is to empower Islamic influence.

     Students from Islamic countries are overstaying visas, remaining in the country illegally while riding the wave of liberalized alien protections now being enforced by the current Justice Department. I have no doubt, they are also greasing the palms of corrupt politicians who will continue to advance their agenda. No, of course we can’t prove that…that’s the idea.

     The war plans and manifestos of the Muslim Brotherhood – which were twice discovered by law enforcement authorities, hidden and unintended for our eyes, said clearly: We will destroy their miserable house (America) from within.

     So, who do you believe? Our last two presidents? Or, our enemies?

     I believe the enemy.

*****

     Here is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood – since 1928:

     “Allah is our objective; The Prophet is our leader; Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

    .Thank you Marshall for your insights. I especially appreciate your comments on the downfall of Egypt. As you know I used to work for President Mubarak. Yes, he had some problems and yes his sons were not the shining examples of intelligence and integrity. However, under President Mubarak Egypt enjoyed relative peace and security to include religious freedoms. Secretary Of state Clinton undermined and facilitated the downfall of President Mubarak and we now observe the transition to what was once a relatively peace loving country transition into a radical Muslim dictatorship.

    The US has a great free and Constitutionally protected society. Unfortunately some countries cannot endear our value system and must remain under different social mores and guidance. Thanks to Secretary Clinton we now have another country that will be lost in turmoil for the next few generations.

    Snake Hunter Sez,

    Jack A. Milavic and JKR know the truth; It’s a joy to see them here.

    I saw the ‘Pentagon Ceremonial of 9/11’ this morning on television, and got a huge
    scramp in my gut when Barry H. Obama said: the biggest Whopper Lie in his four years of playing chicago politics…via Tele-Prompter… in the People’s White House:

    “OUR FIGHT… IS WITH AL QUEDA… NOT ISLAM”!!!

    It’s Not Necessary… to be a middle-east scholar to know that we’ve been fighting and
    dying against ISLAM since November 04, 1979…that’s almost 33 yrs when the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s thug students grabbed our U.S. Embassy in Tehran.

    Hey Obama, that’s an ‘Act of War’ under International Law. You say you have an Elite Legal Education.. from Harvard Law School? — Whewee!

    It’s Not Necessary to be a student of Sharia Law, to know that ‘al Queda’ is a minor
    part of the Sunni/Salafist radical group…and, that we’ve captured or killed most of their upper-echelon leadership with high-tech weapons and special forces teams in the last few months.

    Our Pentagon Professionals Are Ignored, and military strategms become potitical
    footballs, discussed by progressive intellectuals, and pundits, and visiting power-
    brokers… and our returning troopers get Obama pep-talks at Ft. Cambell, Kentucky.

    When I reflect on those days and weeks after 9-11, it was clear that our leaders were absolutely clueless regarding the World of Islam towards Western Values.

    Not only Was President GW Bush caught up in the false analogy fed to him by Siddiqi that Islam was a “religion of Peace”, but so was another brilliant analyst on Russian affairs in his cabinet, Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice who also bought the religion of peace analogy hook line and sinker. Secretary Rice went onto proclaim it for several years along with other administration officials as well as congressmen seemingly accepting its false premise on face value. Clearly the teachings and the actions of Muslims across the Middle east defied this perception to the point of outrageous incredulity every day.

    Islam is and always has been the “religion of the sword” for nearly 1,400 years. Mohamed’s little band of followers numbered around 150 during his 13 years in Mecca. Most Arabs considered him more of a nuisance then anything else until he and his followers made a pilgrimage to Medina and began a campaign of terror and savage murders against caravans and others in an effort to force conversions to his religion. From there Mohamed’s Islam grew like a cancer over the next 1,400 years across the Middle East until it was pushed back in France.

    Jihad is prescribed for all Muslims against the infidel and 80 percent of what is defined as jihad is war against the non Muslim.

    If we continue to appease them and pay the jizya tax which we are doing we only end up strengthening their resolve against us.

    Our political correctness is our Achilles Heal in dealing with this aggressive totalitarian ideology that is more political then religious,and they know it..

    Snake Hunter Sez,

    Mr. Mackie knows Islam.

    At The Pentagon 9/11 Rememberance Ceremony… Leon Panetta introduced our President, B.H. Obama. Prez Obama was quick to drop this absurd remark:

    “OUR FIGHT…IS WITH AL QUEDA…,NOT ISLAM”!!!

    I agree with every word that you are sayng. The Obama foreign policy leaves a lot to be desired. The problem as I see it is that Romney has not articulated the problem as clearly as you have in this short article. Instead he is advocating no tax increase for the very rich, he is critisizing Obamacare when he clearly had the same policy when he was governor of Mass. and it proved successful and of course the unemployment situation. Obama’s reply is that he inherited this mess and had not enough time to fix it. We are clearly in a lot of trouble no matter who wins the election. Unfortunately things will have to get a lot worse before we reverse course. We will have to start fro0m scratch.

    Snake Hunter Opines,

    Deception so often seems a part of the subtle word-games when our high-level politicians speak of friends in the middle east At the Pentagon on 9/11 Obama said:

    “Our fight is with al Queda…. Not Islam” and…

    Commenting on the muirder of Ambassador Chris Stephens. When speaking about the four fatalities in Bengazi, Hillary Clinton said. “It was a small band of savages.”
    .
    Well, I suppose it will comfort the progressive-thinking folks back in the U.S. to know…
    that the U.S. President and Secretary of State felt sure that the attacks In Egypt and Libya will not interfere with our warm friendships of these “trusted friends…. of Islam”.

    Hey Marshall,
    FYI, The man responsible for “ushering” the 142 Saudis back to their home country
    was none other than Richard Clark. He explained this once on CSpan years ago
    as being a “gesture of goodwill” that he could use for future intelligence gathering.
    In other words a good deed for info down the road. Also I remember there was a
    guy from the ACLU in the audience who almost fainted when Clark told him it
    was he that ordered the plane back to SA. Micheal Moore that sorry piece of commie
    scum made much about this incident in his movie F911, blaming Bush for it. When it
    was Clark that wanted it to happen.

  9. reality September 15, 2012 at 7:05 pm #

    Where were all of you ON 9/11? No one went to the Pentagon and asked “where’s the plane?” A plane big enough to carry 280 people, with a titanium alloy engine on each side, can hit a building without breaking 2 double hung glass windows or touching the grass? DNA from the passengers survives, but only 2 pieces of wreckage from that size a plane-the rest was vaporized? And the debris trail to Shanksville is 8 MILES long-so how did it plunge headfirst into the ground? Again-“Inside Job” by Jim Marrs, has the STILL unanswered questions and research of the widows, family and friends who died. “Triple Cross” by Peter Lance has al-qaeda here in 1990. You all just woke up on Jan. 24, 2009? TWO years it took to get Congress to investigate because Bush & Cheney stonewalled. What WAS Rummy doing for FIFTY minutes inside the Pentagon while Americans burned? Where were your questions THEN?

    Dear William Stringer: And Richard Clarke would have the authority to do all that on his own, without Bush or Cheney’s consent? President Reagan appointed Richard Clarke, as I recall. And warned Bush, and Cheney, who was supposed to meet with Clarke and all the agencies working to stop Terrorism, way, way ahead of 9/11. Cheney was instead meeting with the Energy CEO’s, and Bush was cutting brush in TX. Bush had said to “lay off the Saudis” , and stopped the drones that Clinton had had follow Osama. “The buck stops here”, I keep reading on this blog. Bush and Cheney both did all they could to wash their hands of 9/11, and stop ANY investigation. Jeb saying “Bush kept us safe” is really really totally false.l
