Passenger charged in Spirit Airlines incident at DTW on 9/11 anniversary
#Islamophobia #September11th #HateCrime…
The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which represented Toure, had sought ethnic intimidation charges.
"We are pleased that the prosecutor took this seriously," said Amy Doukoure, staff attorney at CAIR-MI. "We’ve seen, especially with what’s going on overseas currently and the heightened emotions around 9/11, an uptick in crimes against Muslims based on their religious identity."

Post-9/11 surveillance has left a generation of Muslim Americans in a shadow of distrust and fear
#Islamophobia #September11th…
“It was so invasive it covered everyday life … undercover informants or undercover officers, their job was to live the life of a fake Muslim inside these communities,” said Ahmed Mohamed, of the New York chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY).
“Think about what you do in your daily life and someone undercover doing it with you … it's very hard, not only did it create a lot of distrust between the community and law enforcement, but also among the community itself, you're not crazy or unreasonable to think

20 Years After #September11th thankful for opportunity @USArmy @FBI @CTCWP to work with amazing Americans & allies tracking down terrorists behind 9/11 & their spawn. I learned so much serving alongside the best people I've ever met in pursuit of the worst people on the planet.
#September11 attacks changed course of my life like many other Americans, I’ve learned a lot, but in my work and travels in the 'War on Terror', online and in the real world, I’ve arrived at no hot takes, no definitive conclusions, no exact theories or absolutes.
There will always be terrorists & America will always need to counter them. Some will hide in Afghanistan, some will be in your neighborhood. Thanks to all who continue to serve and protect all Americans against future terrorists attacks.

USA gedenken heute des 20 Jahrestages von #NineEleven .
Vor genau 20 Jahren, am #September11 2001, flogen zwei entführte Passagierflugzeuge ins #WorldTradeCenter .
Fast 3000 Menschen starben damals.
Noch immer sind zahlreiche Seiten der internen US-Untersuchung dazu geheim.
Die vielen geschwärzten Stellen sind zugleich einer der Gründe dafür, weshalb die offizielle Version von #September11th immer wieder angezweifelt wird.
Um dem zu begegnen, versprach #Biden die baldige Offenlegung zahlreicher Seiten.
Insbesondere der Angriff auf das #Pentagon , der ebenfalls am #September11 erfolgte, wird oft vorgehalten, um die Zweifel an der offiziellen Version zu stützen.
Die Trefferstelle am Gebäude sei zu klein, um von einem Passagierflugzeug zu stammen, so bsp. die Argumentation.

You said you would never forget. But judging by your actions, you forgot. These men and women will recklessly abandon any version of self-preservation for the protection of their community. They are still the same men and women that stand in front of you today.
They are not perfect but I know they care. I know they’ll do anything to include giving their own lives to protect you. They will die excruciating deaths from the most torturous forms of cancer from running into chemical dust clouds of falling buildings.
They’ll run into a burning building only to have it collapse on top of their heads in an effort to save your life. They haven’t changed.... You have. They still love you and are at the other end of the phone anytime you are in need.

I woke up in Motel 6, Sioux Falls, SD. on Sep. 11, 2001.
Heading back from visiting family in MN. Flipped on the news and thought it was a movie. When I looked out, I saw people in the parking lot talking quietly together with a sense of disbelief on their faces. Image
After showering, I went out and commiserated for a time. It was good to talk with other Americans and share the grief. This was when I began to listen to Rush Limbaugh on a regular basis. He was on the radio every day, as I drove across America.
@BoSnerdley Image
His commentary was reassuring and insightful and I'll always be grateful for that voice along the way. Thank you, Rush, for making that pill a little easier to swallow.

Like all of you, I'll never forget that day. #September11th

Operation Yellow Ribbon was commenced by Canada to handle the diversion of civilian airline flights in response to the September 11 attacks in 2001 on the United States. Canada's goal was to ensure that potentially destructive air traffic be removed from US airspace(cont)
quickly as possible, and away from potential U.S. targets, and instead place these aircraft on the ground in Canada. Here are photos of Gander, Newfoundland. Gander, with a population of 10,000 took in over 6,000 passengers on 38 airliners destined for the US.(cont)
Vancouver airport took in over 8,500 passengers and dozens of other Canadian airports received thousands more. In the end Canada took in over 33,000 passengers in 224-239 airliners over the few hours. #september11th

"Never Forget"
That's a phrase we see everywhere on the eve of 9/11. It's a phrase used to make us think of a few specific things. They include the 1 patrolman from the New York Fire Patrol, the 8 EMTs, the 60 Police Officers, 1/8
the 343 Brothers from the FDNY and the 2,753 civilians killed in the attacks. Sadly 9/11 and "Never Forget" is used as a moment of national solidarity and a moment of nationalist style unity. 2/8
Far too often though the United States forgets the countless other innocent civilians and people to die due to 9/11. The 31,000 Afghani civilians killed due to the war, the roughly 208,000 Iraqi civilians killed as a direct result of the war in Iraq. 3/8

The anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, is both a solemn day of remembrance and a time to reflect on the threat that all forms of extremism pose to public safety. #Remember911
It was a clear and bright morning when jihadists hijacked four commercial jetliners and crashed two of the planes full of innocent passengers into the World Trade Center in New York City. #September11th
Another hijacked commercial jet slammed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. And a fourth hijacked jetliner crashed into an empty field in Pennsylvania after the passengers valiantly fought back and overpowered the terrorists. #September11th

I re-read this story every year this time of year. You should too. #September11th #WeRemember #NeverForget…
"They began jumping not long after the first plane hit the North Tower, not long after the fire started. They kept jumping until the tower fell. They jumped through windows already broken and then, later, through windows they broke themselves."
"They jumped to escape the smoke and the fire; they jumped when the ceilings fell and the floors collapsed; they jumped just to breathe once more before they died."

As we reach another anniversary of 9/11, I'm proud to present you here with a war story that is both old and new. Let me explain. 1/…
In 2010, I was a 29-year-old journalist in my third year of covering the military. I’d been at @MarineTimes since January 2008, and I hadn’t yet seen U.S. troops in combat.

That would change, abruptly and violently. 2/
@Marinetimes That spring, I set out to visit Marja, Afghanistan, which was then one of the major efforts for the U.S. military.

I traveled with Tom Brown, a veteran war photographer who also happens to be married to the great @cbudoffbrown. 3/

for #September11th 10th anniversary, @voiceofwitness asked me to edit oral history book of folks targeted by both state & private actors in the virulent backlash that followed attacks.Equally important to #NeverForget this shameful phase of the aftermath…
I'm grateful that Karen @korematsu penned the foreword. It's painful how little we learn from history

1. I’ve composed many memorials to the victims of the terror attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001. #NeverForget #September11th

However ...
2. One remains my favorite because the post's main topic is not about my reaction to the attack, nor is it about death, not really.
3. Minoru Yamasaki (1912-1986) was the chief architect of the World Trade Center.

😢Today, I'm remembering Ace Bailey. Well, Garnet "Ace" Bailey, professional hockey player from 1967-1981.

🏆🏆He was a member of the Boston Bruins Stanley Cup winning teams in 1969-70 and 1971-72.

🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆In 1981, he became a Scout, working for the Edmonton Oilers. 5 cups.
🏒Todd Bailey, Ace's son, put 6 Stanley Cup rings on the Memorial in 2016.

💍The 7th ring was on Ace's finger when his plane, United Airlines Flight 175, was hijacked and deliberately crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001.
🍀I was lucky enough to meet him, sit with him and ask questions about the 1969-70 Boston Bruins for a project I was working on, before, during and after a 1999 Los Angeles Kings game while he was working for the team as a scout.

On September 15, 2001, the @latimes printed this.

"We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this." 1/4 #September11th #PatriotDay
"But in a larger sense, we can not dedicate-we can not consecrate-we can not hallow-this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract." 2/4
"It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion..." 3/4
