9-11 Plus Seventeen

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 11, 2018

         IT’S BEEN SEVENTEEN YEARS SINCE THE WORST TERRORIST ATTACK ON AMERICA, KILLING 3,000 AND TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF LOVED ONES

         THERE IS ONLY ONE LESSON. IT IS ROOTED IN AN OLD SAYING: “ETERNAL VIGILENCE IS THE PRICE OF LIBERTY.”

         WE WERE NOT VIGILANT ABOUT EVENTS LEADING UP TO THAT DAY. WE LACKED VIGILANCE WHEN IT CAME TO THE TERRORISTS WHO HAD INFILTRATED THIS COUNTRY UNDER FALSE PRETENSES, LEARNED TO TAKE-OFF, BUT NOT LAND PLANES AND WHOSE ASSOCIATION WITH MOSQUES KNOWN FOR ANTI-AMERICAN HATE SPEECH WAS OBVIOUS TO ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION.

         WE STILL LACK THE KIND OF VIGILANCE THAT WILL PREVENT SOMETHING LIKLE 9-11 AS IT IS NOW KNOWN FROM HAPPENING AGAIN, OR WORSE. THE WORSE IS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN EUROPE – AN INVASION BY LARGELY NORTH AFRICAN MUSLIMS WHOSE GOAL IS TO DOMINATE THE CONTINENT AND SUBDUE ALL WITH A DIFFERENT FAITH OR NO FAITH. THEY ARE COMING HERE AND IN FACT ARE ALREADY HERE, BUT MANY REFUSE TO BELIEVE IT BECAUSE THEY HATE BEING CALLED RACISTS. 

         WE’D BETTER WAKE-UP TO THE THREAT AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT BECAUSE IF WE DON’T THERE WON’T BE A SECOND CHANCE. I’M CAL THOMAS.
