Twelve years ago today, Muslim terrorists linked to al-Qaeda hijacked four jetliners and flew them into the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. That the fourth did not hit its target is a lasting testimony to the courage of a few Americans on board Flight 93.
Still, the attacks killed thousands of people who had done nothing to deserve being burned alive, hurled to their deaths or crushed into dust.
It was one of the most horrific mass murders in history, and the Bush Administration rightly dedicated itself to hunting down and killing as many members of al-Qaeda as it could lay its hands on.
Whatever else you think of the Iraq war or President Bush, the War on Terror was about seeking justice.
The definition of treason, according to the Legal Dictionary, is “the betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.”
Al-Qaeda is our enemy. It has always considered itself such, and on 9-11, we finally realized it too.
Why then is President Obama siding with the al-Qaeda-led “rebels” in Syria?
Why did Obama in June approve open military aid to the rebels that included rifles, ammunition, grenades and rockets?
Why was the Obama Administration just a year ago smuggling arms and personnel into Syria through Turkey, by way of Benghazi, Libya?
Why would an American Administration have anything to do with an organization whose members have been reported to commit atrocities such as killing Christians, engaging in cannibalism, even dismembering a little girl with a saw while she was still alive?
Obama has forgotten, or possibly never cared, about the victims of 9-11. In May of this year he declared the War on Terror was over and al-Qaeda was “on a path” to defeat.
Yet, here we are, providing aid and comfort to our sworn enemies and standing on the verge of doing their dirty work by getting rid of Syria’s current government.
It’s a betrayal of the memories of those murdered on 9-11, and it meets the definition of treason by aiding our enemies. Yet Obama remains in office. His flunkies, too, remain in office.
The War on Terror was about seeking justice. Where’s the justice now?
