We Must Never, Ever Forget September 11, 2001

Fifteen years ago today, Islamic jihadists executed the single deadliest attack on U.S. soil by a geopolitical foe since the War of 1812.

The jihadists were largely trained and funded by nefarious Wahhabist/Salafist Sunni zealots in Saudi Arabia, with no small degree of aid from Shi’ite sharia supremacist radicals in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The civilizational clash between barbaric jihad and free West, which Israelis had dealt with first-hand for decades but for America had previously largely been confined to Marine barracks attacks in the Levant, African embassy bombings, and the USS Cole tragedy, had finally struck a deathly blow to the American mainland.
