Fighter Jets Deployed On 9/11 Threat!

Filed under: Etc.Sad Sad

American Airlines Fighter jets

The passengers of an American Airlines flight were in for one hell of a ride yesterday!

On the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001, some passengers spent a little too much time in the restroom.

Naturally, what with the psychological stress of 9/11, this caused some disturbance.

The flight was headed to New York

With three men constantly going in and out of the restroom, passengers on board became wary. Different crew members and at least one passenger even swore they saw the men give each other hand signals as they merry-go-rounded the lavatory.

After important communication was made, fighter jets were deployed to accompany the plane on its journey.

But, thankfully, all turned out to be well.

As the plane made it's destination safely, the FBI was ready to interrogate the men on their suspicious behavior.

After questioning, the feebs determined they were innocent of foul play. Phew!

But we wonder… it's easy to let one's imagination get the best of them, and flying on 9/11 is sure to stir all sorts of paranoia, but why did multiple members on board see attest to seeing the same thing with the hand signals?

Hmm, a little psychology homework for ya!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

Every time we watch something about this… Every time we listen to something about this…

SO. SAD.

With just a few days to go before the tenth anniversary of the tragic September 11 attacks, new tapes have been released chronicling the military's reactions to 9/11 as well as air traffic control as they track the hijacked planes.

A bit of the black box audio from one of the planes is heard as well, including an order given by one of the hijackers.

Watch the video (above) to hear the chilling yet historical tapes URself.

9/11 Firefights Have A Higher Risk Of Cancer

Filed under: Sad SadHealthCancer

911 Firefighters Increased Cancer Risk

Ugh, this is so sad.

Firefighters who responded on 9/11 during that horrible, tragic day, have a higher risk of cancer according to a new study:

Male firefighters who were exposed to toxic dust and smoke from the 9/11 attacks on New York's World Trade Center have a 19 percent higher risk of getting cancer of all kinds than colleagues who were not exposed, U.S. researchers said on Thursday.

Luckily though, this is not saying, "You're going to get cancer." This means an increased risk. So there are things that these firefighters can do to try and prevent it, but it's now a tougher prevention:

"For those who were down there and do not have cancer, this is not an epidemic, but it is an increased risk. So the most important thing to do is enroll in an active cancer prevention and screening program."

For firefighters and others who were exposed and have not yet developed cancer, Prezant advised lifestyle changes that can cut cancer risk — quitting smoking, limiting alcohol use, getting regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight.

Unfortunately, cancer is not yet covered under the 9/11 Health and Compassion Act, like asthma and some respiratory diseases are. But this new study is a step in the right direction in getting these deserving heroes the treatment they deserve.

And boy do they deserve it.

We thank each and every one of them for their heroism and sacrifice during that horrible time.

A Look At The Ground Zero Memorial

Filed under: PolitikInspiration

With the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks coming up, the memorial site at ground zero ran a test on one of the reflecting pools.

The two pools, each in the footprint of a tower, are an acre in size and 50 feet deep. They're the largest man made waterfalls in America.

What a beautiful way to honor all those we lost.

The memorial officially opens on September 11th, 2011. See the above video for more details about the site.

Osama Planned On Killing Obama

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

Osama Wanted Obama Dead

It's a good thing Obama gave the go ahead with killing Osama bin Laden!

According to officials, not only did the terrorist leader have plans to celebrate the tenth year anniversary of 9/11, but he was also planning on assassinating the President!

He planned to bomb Obama down during an Air Force One ride.

Silly Osama. That would have been nearly impossible given Obama's high security.

He did have more realistic plans though, including an idea to bomb an American sporting event.

It's terrible to learn about these things, but maybe this will shut up the dum-dums who thought they were on the same team. Or the even dumber ones who thought they were the same person!

Huge Fight On The View With Bill O'Reilly! Whoopi And Joy Walk Off Set!

This is DEFINITELY going to go down as one of the most explosive fights that this show has ever seen!

Check out (above) a video of Bill O'Reilly duking it out with Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg this morning on The View over whether or not it's appropriate for a Mosque to be built near Ground Zero!

We certainly don't blame the ladies for getting as heated as they do!

It's extremely disappointing to us that anyone, especially in this day and age, would not be able to separate the actions of an extremist, TERRORIST group from a religion that has nothing to do with what happened on 9/11.

What do U think?? Was Bill O'Reilly out of line or did the ladies overreact??
