It's been 20 years since 9/11, and it has not ended for so many and perhaps, never will. Some were evacuated and rescued, many lost their lives or loved ones, jumped in to help others, and continue to suffer the after-effects. When I turned the TV on that morning, what I saw left me in utter disbelief and it hit hard, life would not be the same again. The impact continues to linger. What we need to take away from this is the need to be resilient, to be together against all odds. Here's my story...

The astonishing fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban after nearly 20 years of American occupation has had many wondering what went wrong in our nation's longest war, not just in recent days but in the two decades that preceded it.  Award-winning investigative reporter Craig Whitlock offers an authoritative perspective. Whitlock has covered the war in Afghanistan for the Washington Post as a foreign correspondent, Pentagon reporter, and national security specialist.  His new book, The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War, tells the story of an unwinnable campaign that had gone awry almost from the beginning, sparking a military and government conspiracy to keep the failure of the war from the American people. As he explains in this interview, “America was losing a war it thought it had won.”

Charlie takes on the sinister speech by former President Bush, where he shamefully equated 75 million American patriots to the terrorists who took down the World Trade Center towers on 9/11 as "children of the same foul spirt." Dissecting the language games and the diction of the 43rd president, Charlie details how Bush, although a Republican, represents degrees of the same failed trajectory of American politics that has led to the cold Civil War we're living through now. Then Charlie asks a provocative question: Why is it that a failed Navy football offensive coordinators get fired for an 0-2 start to the football season while military generals still have a job after the surrender in Afghanistan? Finally, Tony Blinken gets grilled by Congress, and Charlie gives an update on claims of election fraud in California's recall election.  Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/support See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

“It's not like there was time to ponder your fate…you just thought, we're powerless to get out of the building….This is it.” Producers: Whit MissildineEpisode Summary: A Port Authority employee narrowly escapes from the 68th floor after a plane hits the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001, but the most devastating impact comes from the psychological wounds that haunt her life for decades after. Today's episode featured Kayla Bergeron. In addition to serving as chief of public and government affairs for The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Kayla has also served in senior roles for the New York State Housing Finance Agency and South Florida Water Management District, the lead agency restoring America's Everglades. Kayla currently resides in Suwanne, Georgia and serves as Program Director, and as a Certified Peer Support Specialist -Addictive Disease (C.P.S.- A.D.), for The Connection Forsyth, a 501c3 non profit recovery community organization, based in Cumming, Georgia. Kayla works as a social media consultant for Special Equestrians of Georgia, in Milton, Georgia, also a 501c3 non profit, where she participates in equine-assisted therapy.Kayla recently started a gofundme for Special Equestrians of Georgia, where she receives equine-assisted therapy for PTSD. Last year, Special Equestrians of Georgia (SEG), based in Milton, GA, had to close down its hippotherapy program due to COVID-19 and safety concerns. As a result, many of the horses had to be rehomed. Currently, SEG provides equine-assisted therapy for teens and adults with mental health challenges, including depression, PTSD, anxiety and trauma. With COVID-19 Delta variant hovering, Special Equestrians of Georgia may be forced to shut down its doors -- for good. It costs approximately $3,000 to fund the program, which includes feeding and special dietary needs, farrier, veterinarian, medicine and facility maintenance. Please help by donating to Special Equestrians of Georgia.This episode is part of a special, four-part series called The Long Shadow. Twenty Years after the attacks of September 11th changed the world as we knew it, this month the This Is Actually Happening podcast dives deep into the stories of four survivors whose jobs brought them face to face with the unthinkable. For those called to manage an impossible tragedy up close, the events of September 11th represented a uniquely horrifying challenge.

Dr Pellegrino, who worked at Ground Zero in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, shares his unique knowledge of the strange physics of volcanic 'downblast' and 'collapse column', drawing a direct link from past to present, and providing readers with a poignant glimpse into the last moments of the 'American Vesuvius'.

The tragic events of 9/11 left thousands dead and injured and the impact of that loss is still being felt twenty years later by the families. It was also a day of extraordinary escapes as thousands more fled the twin towers after the planes hit. In this podcast, we both remember those people who died and also hear an extraordinary story of survival. Dan is first joined by Jonathan Egan who lost his father, Michael, and aunt, Christine, during the attacks on 9/11. Whilst Jonathan is a New Yorker his father and aunt were from Hull, England. Michael and Christine were on the 100th floor of the South Tower when the plane struck and as his aunt attempted to escape his father made one last phone call home to say goodbye to his family. Jonathan tells Dan about his memories of that terrible day, how he dealt with his loss and the impact it has had on him and his family.Secondly, in an extract from our sibling podcast, Warfare Joe Dittmar shares with James his story of surviving 9/11. On the morning of 11 September 2001, he was in a meeting on the 105th floor of the South Tower of the World Trade Center when the plane struck. He was one of the only people to escape the tower from above the point of impact after locating the only remaining intact stairwell. Listen to the full interview with Joe here.

As a Senator for New York on September 11th, 2001, Hillary witnessed the devastation at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Afterwards, she was deeply involved in the response and recovery efforts.     For her, every anniversary of 9/11 is an opportunity to commemorate the victims, survivors, first responders, and their families. So on this special episode of You and Me Both, she is joined by three people directly impacted by 9/11—to listen to their stories, and talk with them about how they've worked to rebuild their own lives and the lives of others. Debbie St. John was walking to work on 9/11 when she was severely injured by falling debris from the second plane hitting the World Trade Center. She was one of the first survivors to be hospitalized, and one of the last to leave the hospital. While she continues to live with the trauma and pain from injuries sustained on that day, she now dedicates much of her time to writing a book on her story and how she was able to overcome opioid dependency. Regina Wilson is a 22-year veteran with the Fire Department of the City of New York. She's one of the few Black female firefighters among the ranks, and was on the scene and at Ground Zero in the aftermath, alongside her fellow first responders. Regina is a longtime advocate for the women first responders who served that day, and a past president of the Vulcan Society representing African American firefighters, EMTs, fire inspectors, fire marshals, and civilian employees of the FDNY.  Jay Winuk is a co-founder and executive vice president of the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. After losing his brother Glenn on 9/11, Jay turned his grief into a remarkable effort to do good, and transform a day of tragedy into one service. 9/11 Day continues to be one of the biggest charitable events every year, organizing upwards of 30 million people around the world.

Just south of the World Trade Center district sits the location of a forgotten Manhattan immigrant community. Curious outsiders called it "Little Syria" although the residents themselves would have known it as the Syrian Colony. Starting in the 1880s people from the Middle East began arriving at New York's immigrant processing station -- immigrants from Greater Syria which at that time was a part of the Ottoman Empire.  The Syrians of Old New York were mostly Christians who brought their trades, culture and cuisine to the streets of lower Manhattan. And many headed over to Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn as well, creating another district for Middle Eastern American culture which would outlast the older Manhattan area. Who were these Syrian immigrants who made their home here in New York? Why did they arrive? What were their lives like? And although Little Syria truly is long gone, what buildings remain of this extraordinary district? PLUS: A visit to Sahadi's, a fine food shop that anchors today's remaining Middle Eastern scene in Brooklyn. Greg and Tom head to their warehouse in Sunset Park to get some insight on the shop's historic connections to the first Syrian immigrants.  Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/boweryboys See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

National Post    The greatest significance of the dramatic and evil assault on New York's World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington 20 years ago was that it initiated a new form of quasi-military violence against the Western democratic powers that had emerged at the end of the Cold War as overwhelmingly the most influential political, economic and cultural force in the world. The national security policy of the leader of the Western alliance, the United States, was enunciated in two speeches to the United States Congress by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941. In his State of the Union address in January of that year he said that America “must always be wary of those who with ‘sounding brass and tinkling cymbal' would preach the ‘ism of appeasement'.” In his war message of December 8, 1941, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and many other sites in the Pacific, Roosevelt said, “we will make very certain that this form of treachery never again endangers us.” The burden of these assertions was that the United States would not be an appeasement power and that it would thereafter retain sufficient deterrent strength that no country would attack it again as Japan had.     Between Roosevelt and George W. Bush, 10 presidents, five of each party, had essentially upheld that double formula successfully. The United States did not appease competing or adversarial states, although it attempted to compromise with them; and no other country has dared to risk the retaliatory response of American military might. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, were the fruit of the imagination of the most militant enemies of America and the West: an attack by people who deliberately committed suicide in conducting the attack—not only were unafraid of dying but were eager to die—by forces that could not be directly linked in any command structure to any sovereign state. It was, after 50 years, the double evasion of the Roosevelt formula: forces so shadowy it was not clear how they could be appeased if anyone wished to do so, and so fanatical that they could not be deterred from even the most heinous acts because of their ardent desire to die for their cause. Clearly, and in the most dramatic possible way, a new threat had emerged.  The spectacle on television of the attacks on the World Trade Center towers is rivaled only by the film of the assassination of Pres. Kennedy as the most vividly and widely remembered incident in the lifetime of anyone now living.    It must be said that the American and allied response was impressive. For the first time, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) invoked the war clause and the North Atlantic Council, NATO's governing authority, unanimously stated that an Alliance member had been attacked in an act of war and every country in the alliance responded as if it were an act of war against themselves: “An attack upon one is an attack upon all.” Forces from a large number of NATO countries were dispatched to Afghanistan, [which w]as the training and staging area for the 9/11 outrages. They quickly overthrew the Afghan government, destroyed the training facilities of the terrorist groups and drove them out of Afghanistan; and virtually every country in the world other than a few militantly Islamist or very primitive states united in a vast system of information exchange and paramilitary cooperation.     Those who remember 9/11 well will remember the widespread speculation and the noisy threats of terrorist spokespeople to the effect that this was merely the introduction of an endless series of massive terrorist assaults upon the West. Of course, there have been some such assaults, although very few recently and some of them were very deadly—though none as horrible or spectacular as the 9/11 attacks 20 years ago. We must not be so depressed and scandalized by the shameful end of the NATO presence in Afghanistan, at the instigation of the current U.S. president, that we fail to recognize the very thorough and almost leak-proof protection that the antiterrorist forces of the Western Alliance and its affiliates, such as Israel and Japan, have given the civil population of the West and its allies these 20 years.                     The disorderly withdrawal from Afghanistan has been an appalling fiasco but the West was certainly not militarily defeated. The American government decided, as the Soviet Union decided in the 1980's and the British Empire decided in the middle of the 19th century, that Afghanistan had few resources, was primitive, landlocked, and terribly inhospitable, had practically no strategic value and was accordingly not worth the military effort to maintain control of the urban areas as NATO was doing with only about 10,000 members of its Armed Forces until a month ago. There is room to dispute this judgment, and I don't agree with it myself, but it was a public relations and not a military defeat. The effect of this withdrawal will be to test whether the Islamist terrorist forces wish to use Afghanistan again as the launching place for their criminal violence or not. If they do, obviously, Afghanistan will be attacked again and probably with much greater violence than it was 20 years ago. Afghanistan has been regarded as rich only in heroin, but the theory has recently arisen that it is rich in rare earths as well.  It sounds like Marxist Herbert Marcuse's theory that the U.S. was in Vietnam because of the oil (which still has not been discovered). In any case, if China wants to plunge into mineral exploration in Afghanistan and add it to its famous Belt and Road, it is welcome to it.     Terrorism isn't really war: it isn't an effort of one sovereign authority to try to overcome and defeat another. It is an attempt by people who possess no sovereign authority, no legitimacy whatever, to strike at innocent people with such violence that it produces sketchily outlined concessions from legitimate sovereign countries. It has been successful only when it has been the advance activity of ultimately successful revolutionary movements within certain countries. It is conceivable that it could undermine and heavily influence, as it has in the last 20 years, some countries highly susceptible to militant Islam. But even those countries will not explicitly adopt terrorist techniques because the retaliation from the states they attacked would be so overwhelming, it would completely over-power the small number of fanatics and programmed idiots who want to die for their cause.     The terrible events of 20 years ago and their sequels have not threatened our civilization as Nazism and Soviet communism did: Great Powers armed to the teeth and led by satanic dictators. Terrorism horrifies all decent people and kills a comparatively small number, but as an instrument of advancement of the cause in which it is inflicted, terrorism is a failure. The West's error, and it was the mistake of George W. Bush, was to try to eradicate terrorism and war by promoting democracy. This required nation-building so profound that there were not the time or the resources to complete it effectively in the barren soil of primitive and undemocratic societies. And it failed to provide for the democratic selection of anti-democratic political movements: Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and the Iraqi electorate may prefer dictatorship to democracy.     Humiliating debacle though it was, the departure from Afghanistan does represent a withdrawal by the West from an overextended position, and an opportunity for the principal Muslim terrorist organizations to try more conventional and less sociopathic methods of advancing their cause. It is obvious that there will be no toleration, anywhere in the West, or by China and Russia (pending Russia taking its rightful place as a western country) for terrorism or any of its espoused objectives. The terrorist attacks in New York and Washington 20 years ago were permanently shocking, but as the dramatic beginning of a campaign to shatter Western civilization, they and their sequels have been almost as conspicuous a failure as were Nazi Germany's recourse to aggressive war in 1939 and Imperialist Japan's assault on Pearl Harbor and across the Pacific in 1941.    ..
