Nine years ago today, 19 radical Islamic terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners and crashed two of them into the 110 story World Trade Center in New York City. Both buildings caught fire and collapsed within hours. The attacks on the World Trade Center resulting in 2,752 deaths.
The Islamic hooligans crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon complex in Arlington, VA and a fourth plane crashed into a rural field near Shanksville, PA after some of its passengers and flight crew attempted to retake control of the plane. The airliner was suspected to be headed to Washington DC.
All told, the attacks killed a staggering 2,996, including the flight crews on the four commercial airliners, and the 19 Islamic hijackers. While the vast majority of casualties were Americans, nationals of over 70 countries died that awful day.
Despite efforts by revisionist historians to the contrary, we will never forget who is responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001.
