Few Americans old enough to have witnessed the events on September 11, 2001 could ever forget the day that changed America and showed us how vulnerable the country really is.
The damage and loss of life was horrendous when both of the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York collapsed and the Pentagon was attacked.
The swift response to the attacks, from, then president, George W Bush came within days afterward and we learned what the meaning of “shock and awe” was as we watched the bombardment of Iraqi installations, in Baghdad, on television.
The mastermind of the world Trade Center attacks, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, was captured and later questioned by the CIA about his plans for other terrorist operations in America and he revealed some interesting details.
From the Independent Journal Review:
In interviews with the CIA, he bragged about beheading Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl and “preened” as he reenacted the savage act so officials could confirm his claim, according to author James E. Mitchell’s new memoir.
But some of Mohammed’s most compelling remarks concern former President George W. Bush’s response to the devastating Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that left nearly 3,000 people dead.
Bush has been harshly criticized over the years — by both the left and right — for his heavy-handed military response. But according to Mitchell’s memoir, “Enhanced Interrogation: Inside the Minds and Motives of the Islamic Terrorists Trying To Destroy America,” Mohammed said the swift action left al-Qaeda stunned and unable to carry out secondary attacks as planned.
From the [book], Washington Post journalist, Marc A. Thiessen, outlines the account:
“Then he looked at me and said, ‘How was I supposed to know that cowboy George Bush would announce he wanted us ‘dead or alive’ and then invade Afghanistan to hunt us down?’”
Mitchell writes. “KSM explained that if the United States had treated 9/11 like a law enforcement matter, he would have had time to launch a second wave of attacks.”
He was not able to do so because al-Qaeda was stunned “by the ferocity and swiftness of George W. Bush’s response.”
But KSM said something else that was prophetic. In the end, he told Mitchell, “We will win because Americans don’t realize … we do not need to defeat you militarily; we only need to fight long enough for you to defeat yourself by quitting.”
Mohammad made a chilling prediction:
Mohammed also predicted “jihadi-minded brothers would immigrate to the United States” and take advantage of the country’s rights and laws until they were ready to attack.
“He said the brothers would relentlessly continue their attacks and the American people would eventually become so tired, so frightened, and so weary of war that they would just want it to end,” Mitchell writes.
“Eventually, America will expose her neck for us to slaughter,” Mohammed said.
This is what Obama’s “peaceful” Muslims have in store for America and they are rubbing shoulders with him in Washington right now. Having the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR advising our president and helping him make domestic policy is the height of foolishness. They believe we will eventually give up and quit resisting them and they will win by default.
We need to hold Trump to his word and make sure Islamic immigration to America is halted and reviewed.
