#Journalism #September11 #TerrorAttacks


  1. I suggest if you’re feeling bad tonight that you watch Seal Team 6 Raid On bin laden. It’s a good feeling when she says, it’s him. Not as good as hearing a Seal say We Got Geronimo.

    1. Americans were relieved that day, though I wished he would have been taken alive and tried in the US, that’s real justice. We should have pulled out of the middle east after that raid…….

    2. @Psilocybe Cubensis that’s for sure in a normal case. We killed him so there was no uprising turned into a hostage situation overseas.
      They would have stopped at nothing to make us release him.
      I’ve watched it like 10Xs and still get chills when the Seals say,We Got Geronimo.

    3. @Psilocybe Cubensis
      If I had a white feather I would hand it to you.
      “We should have tried Bin Laden…”

      You are a disgrace to the uniform and don’t even know the first rule of war: compel your enemy to fulfill your will.

  2. Americans are requesting that Biden and his voters abstain from 9/11 ceremonies, due to their disrespect of the fallen by surrendering to the Taliban. .

    1. Texas for sure and I’m sure more to come. Republicans are out of control and are basically the American taliban

    2. @I am jacks complete lack of surprise This fake is Impersonating someone else who’s legit and you can go to his channel and report him an an Impersonator. A lots of right winger are stealing IDs and posting the same comments. PS don’t feed them but report them.

    3. Yeah, what Americans??? Speak for yourself, NOT the 75% of the population who AGREE with Biden and the evacuation from Afghan.

    4. @I am jacks complete lack of surprise lol. You’re on here calling anybody and everybody a nazi and talking about feces and you’re saying the REPUBLICANS are out of control? Dude, you gotta get back on your meds if you think the entire state of Texas is controlled by Q and Russia

    1. @L Mak Trump influenced others to allow covid to spread out of control. During that time hundreds of thousands died. So ok, let’s not blame the full 600 on him. But are you really going to argue he isn’t responsible for a good percentage of those deaths?? 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    2. @L Mak The conversation seemed quite unequivocal and I replied accordingly. If you didn’t like what I said, say so. But to accuse me of not being consistent with it, kinda dumb.

  3. “Coulda-shoulda-woulda” today so many Republicans are arm-chair quarterbacks and they forget the landing on the carrier back in 2003 George Walker Bush saying “The job is done.” This outcome from those Republicans was so predictable as the sunrise. A colossal waste of time, lives and resources.

    1. @Thyalwaysseek Today so many Trump supporters forget their beloved can-do-no-wrong god-like president not only continued to sell weapons to Saudi, the country you’re referring to, but also broke records in this.

      Giving Saudi the largest arms deal in American imperialist history _($108 billion tax dollars),_ and at a time when Saudi was violently occupying Yemen and Libya, using American weapons and vehicles……..

      Ever president since 2001 has been doing this, why single out Biden?

    2. Your criticism of the war emboldened our enemy.

      If you were one of those people who would stomach fighting the war, showing the terrorists their own beating heart, and moving on (with no sympathy) they would have lost.

    3. I am so sad for people who cannot just take one day to pay respect to all those lives lost. One day just to honor them and the hero’s of that day, no politics, no arguing.. just one day. Don’t they deserve that?

  4. Shout out to George Floyd on sixteen months of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals🖕🖕

    1. @Shana Hager I think I can help. He’s pointing out what a mockery it was to praise a crackhead and pay his family $60million for fighting with police when we have serious issues in America.

    1. @Psilocybe Cubensis
      You must be a lackey for General Milley…having your office way behind the enemy line in a nice air conditioned office, while your terrible decisions cost lives.

      Trump did not expand or start any wars, which means less soldier lives lost.

    2. @Aisha bint Abu Bakr that’s right, he released 5000 Taliban prisoners, excluded the Afghanistan leaders in “his deal” with the Taliban!

  5. “Mommy, can I be a liberal when I grow up?” asked Billy.
    Mother replied, “Unfortunately you can’t do both sweetie.”
    Mother was very wise… True story

    1. Thanks for demonstrating Projection! It’s one of the few things cons do well.
      I love how fake patriot cons dis libs for not being “grown up,” as they climb into their oversized [overcompensating] Tonka truck with the “We support the Blue,” law and order bumper sticker, then peel out and go 90 in a 65 mph zone. Their toxic mix of juvenile commentary and hypocrisy is stunning!

    2. Did you tell you mom you wanted to be a partisan when you grew up? Because that’s what you are tight now, the founding fathers would be disappointed in you my fellow American.

  6. Hey Biden,
    Check out the report Fox19 just put out about the drone & Afghanistan.
    True ? Not true ?
    If true, who informed you about the terrorist with the bottles ?

    1. Biden and his corrupt handlers are letting terrorists pour into America, flying them in directly from Middle East. Dems and media love anything that destroys America or kills Americans. We need to deal with these libtrds once and for all America!

  7. The second 9/11, when Donald Trump declared himself the winner of an election in which his opponent received more votes, was a much bigger catastrophe for America than the first – and yet the man has STILL not been prosecuted for any of his many obvious crimes – which amounts to an open invitation for the 9/11-related attacks to continue.

  8. Okay. Yup. 20 years ago. It’s a sad story! Thank you for this reporting job. It’s just heartbreaking otherwise! Yup!

  9. Why don’t journalists report how presidents of both political brands have continued to sell weapons for the last 20 years to the country who perpetrated this attack on Americans.
