Administration cuts and runs on NYC KSM trial.
(H/T: @andylevy) Amazing what one Senatorial election can do. Like, say, make a Presidential administration pay attention to local political concerns for a change. The Obama administration has abandoned its plan to put Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, on trial in Lower Manhattan, according to administration officials. The reversal marks the latest setback for an administration that has | Read More »
A bit… petulant to cut 9/11 health funding, no?
I mean, I get the central message: “Fine. You want me to cut spending? I’ll cut spending! I’ll show you! I’LL SHOW YOU ALL!” The Obama administration stunned New York’s delegation Thursday, dropping the bombshell news that it does not support funding the 9/11 health bill. The state’s two senators and 14 House members met with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just hours | Read More »
Charlie Sheen interviews for Green Jobs Czar position.
Fortunately, the White House is going to avoid hiring 9/11 Troofers overtly for a while – bad news for members of the Democratic party’s base who haven’t scored executive branch jobs yet, but good news for the rest of the country. And they aren’t going to give 9/11 Troofers exclusive interviews with the President… probably. Maybe. One hopes. Well, they will almost certainly not let | Read More »
On the 9/11 National Day of Service issue.
Background here, with commentary here and here – the short version is that the administration is in the process of rebranding 9/11 as a National Day of Service. Like one of Hot Air’s commenters, I note that 9/12 makes a good deal more thematic sense, but then everything that you really need to know about the actual intent can be seen, as usual, by some | Read More »
Senator Gillibrand gives the 9/11 Troofers some agitprop.
This only encourages them. On the other hand, her party does have a problem with this sort of thing, and I guess that she may need the campaign contributions for next year after all – so now would be a good time to reach out to the base. But really, madam: Infowars? Moe Lane PS: The New York Observer: “The video is already in wide | Read More »
Greg Gutfield has exposed the 9/11 Conspiracy once and for all!
And – of course! – it’s in the last place you’d look: Here’s how my very simple theory works: the common 9/11 truthers are – as a rule – unemployed, living at home, and nutritionally deficient due to a vigorously vegan diet. This gave them the free time, as well the depressed hostility (due to lack of animal protein) needed to plan the attacks. After | Read More »
My two observations on 9/11.
First: our prayers for the dead and their families and loved ones. May the latter, especially, have the strength to get through this day, and the days the follow. Second: I’M STILL HERE, you miserable, misogynistic, homophobic, anti-Semitic, hate-filled, cowardly fantasy ideologist son-of-a-bitch. I just went out to feel the wind and the sun on my face. When’s the last time you got to do | Read More »
