Good reminder. What did it take, the prelude to another POTUS campaign, to lose any sense of Unity?

At least two nukes should've been dropped. In AFG and PAK. Ideally 75% of the moslem population of the world should've been slain by now. And those in other western countries put in camps and the i-slam beaten out of them. The moslemic look should've become a 'shoot me' sign and people, not governments, but people themselves should've hunted them down, culled them. America should've invaded the arabics, taken all their oil and slaved them to a governorate policed by the likes of Ricardo Sanchez. The WOT was the bare goddamn minimum the west could do.
But instead the whole world had already fagged out by then. Afraid of their own fucking shadow, enticed by ideas of being 'better than them', self-righteous shit taught by vicars and ignorant masochist assholes. Because of lack of sound doctrine humanity chooses again and again to not avenge the innocent. It should absolutely murder their assailants, with all their fucking families. Instead we have ideas like Collateral, ROEs, the Geneva motherfucking conventions...! Nonsense!!
The last heroic deed done by mankind was finishing the Axis. And look what it took. Hell, if it takes Gawd a bloody flood, deaths of firstborns, plagues and massacres to get somewhere with wayward humanity, we think we can achieve something with a stupid UN resolution? A few ultra surgical hits that took decades and trillions to achieve? There's no reason to celebrate. Shit!

It would appear that have all of the operational facts and most are now in the public domain.
Although the fact that we have NOT conducted a TRIAL of KSM and his henchman with the Military Commissions framework makes me wonder what remains.
KSM issued what is in effect an Ops Order for the attack. Centralized planning and decentralized execution was the rule. The planning covered in detail the tactics, operational control/comms, the "looming tower" order of execution, the funding, all the way to shaping of the strategic and political implications and messaging post attack.
The attack on the US was just one part of the overall operation. The execution of Ahmad Shah Massoud initiated the op, the strike on the US centers of political, military, and economic centers of gravity followed. There were indicators that an assassination attempt against Saddam Hussein was planned as well, but was disrupted by Hussein's security.
Interestingly enough to N2N1's point, the most highly classified information regarding all of this was the classification of political information immediately after the attack. Much of it is still classified. Obama declassified the meat of it a few years ago. But, what lingers behind the wall?
What I remember from that day.
I am on a Teleconference call with my VP of sales and VP of Enterprise practices. We are discussing the IT Security presentation I had present back in Feb. of that year to the NY/NJ Port Authority. Where I warned the Port Authority they needed to better secure and disbuse their computer center operations. Given there had already been one attack on the WTC some years before (the parking garage bomber) and I was immediately cut off by a high ranking client and my Sales person was told to end my presentation.
On 9-11, we were then discussing how to resubmit the needed IT SEC and disbursal purposal, when my screen lit-up telling me that the 1st plane had hit, by some NOC Team members.
I then mention the that WTC was hit to the VP's and maybe a hacker had played with the Rabbit (USAF gargone for Runway IFR landing beacon). Then the 2nd hit. A VP then said "It looks like we aren't going to get anything done today..." and hung up.
The next day I got a call and told to deleted the Feb. IT Sec presentation and related materials.
There were indicators that an assassination attempt against Saddam Hussein was planned as well,
After all the training Al Qaeda cadres got at Salman Pak? Was this to be payback to Iran for sheltering the non-Quetta Shura and a bunch of wives and children, because otherwise I can’t understand it, Tennessee.
Roughly OBL's plan was to eliminate his competition in AF by assassinating Massoud, strike the US to elevate his stature, and assassinate Saddam and emplace an AQ influenced proxy in order to control the largest Arab land Army in ME. OBL already had proxies emplaced in Africa, Yemen, and had SA paying tithes to him to be left alone. OBL's end desire was to be more of a modern Saladin than a Caliph. OBL believed that an attempt to establish a modern Caliphate was premature.
Regarding Saddam, OBL and Saddam were not allies...they were competitors for the whole Saladin visage...and all it takes to change the government of a dictatorship is one bullet. OBL was willing to to invest in that change for the opportunity to emplace a proxy that he could control.

The excuses for why there isn't a Quetta sized hole in the world. Why after 9/11 instead of a purging of Islam from the free world, there was an incoherent, slapdash response to the civilizational challenge. Why it took a guy in 2016 to talk about barring more moslems from entering America. Why hundreds of billions were just given away to islamics all over the damn world. One of your Langley chaps said, 'why, we're paying them more money not to kill us than we're spending on killing them!' There's no excuse for letting Islam survive in America after they danced. They danced! With streamers and music. To the carnage. There were jokes in their movies and media back in Pakistain, about 'the idiot Americans giving us money to hide their killers'. There were no Urdu speakers, nor did any cake eater bother to learn Urdu or dari or Farsi to understand the chatter, the pamphlets, the subtle giveaways. Nope. They instead relied on ... local assets! Inter-fucking-preters! We offered them our services, quid pro nothing. But they preferred 'slamabad! Oh the ISI would supply the talent as always. Shit!!

Gradually the world grew to worrying about cow farts and carbon taxes. Sheltering a single sunni moslem in a country should have incurred sanctions. Entire communities should've been quarantined, 9066ed like the Japs after pearl harbour. The arabics be damned, any sunni should've been allowed to be hunted on sight. Militias encouraged to go after the islamics, mosques shuttered, razed, prayers banned. But no. The Black panthers and the Farrakhan types were already in.
Instead the politicians promised the people that revenge would be taken, yessir! And plunged thousands of good men into a thankless meat grinder. And what do you know? Somewhere along the way, it transformed from a mission for justice into propping up some shitty democratic government in Afghanistan!
And paying Pakistain billions to seriously I don't know do what. Maybe throw info on Taliban from time to time. While they bathed in US taxpayer money in 'slamabad and Karachi. It was the ISI who gave Intel on Dr. Z in the end, but only because they wanted to hurt Kabul this time. Aaargh... I'll go on until someone punches my lights out. I'm out of alcohol too tonight.
Aah yes, that stoopid bastard Bush Jr. Gawd, whatta schmuck! For decades it's been like this. The GOP has had only these hubristic assholes to champion the cause of hegemony. No one cared for America itself. Until DJT, who then everyone had to gang up on. Because he would say the salamwaleikums and rather sided with the Christian world.
Taliban ...Arabic for students... members reportedly mutilated a traffic enforcer’s ear in Aybak city, the quiet provincial capital of Samangan province in central Afghanistan, after the traffic officer stopped their car to avoid traffic congestion.
A video that has also been made public and is making the rounds on social media shows the traffic officer wearing a blood-stained uniform. The Taliban reportedly cut off the traffic officer’s ear after he stopped the vehicle transporting their troops to ease a traffic bottleneck.
At the same time, it is also reported that Taliban forces have shot a woman in Takhar province in northern Afghanistan.
According to the reports, the Taliban forces shot a 43-year-old woman, who is said to be a mother of 4 children in Takhar province’s Dasht Qala district.
Qandigul, a mother 4, is reported to have been shot by the Taliban forces in Abi Naw Abad village in the Dasht Qala district of Takhar.
The Taliban authorities have not yet responded to the situation by making a statement or a comment, despite the fact that the cause or reason for the Taliban’s shootings of the woman in Takhar has not yet been disclosed.

two explosions hit Dasht-e-Barchi, a Hazara ...a grouping of Dari-speaking people of Sino-Tibetan descent inhabiting Afghanistan and Pakistain. They are predominantly Shia Moslems and not particularly warlike, which makes them favored targets... neighborhood in the west of Kabul on Saturday evening.
The first explosion reportedly occurred at 06:45 in front of a crowded commercial market and later another bomb went kaboom! in Pul-e-Khushk bus stop.
Local sources confirmed injuries to civilians who were transported to the closes hospital in the area.
Taliban ...Arabic for students... ’s Ministry of Interior announced that the earth-shattering kaboom was as a result of sticky bombs placed on bicycles and as a result 3 civilians have been injured.
This comes as the Shiet suburb area in the West of Kabul has been repeatedly target of attacks in the past years. Hundreds of Hazara non-combatants were killed in the multiple attacks which were claimed to be undertaken by ISIS.

According to reports, a Taliban ...Arabic for students... Blackhawk chopper crashed inside a military training base in the capital Kabul on Saturday afternoon.
Taliban’s Ministry of Defense has confirmed the incident and has said it was due to a technical error with the chopper. Insh'allah!
A blurb published by the Ministry of Defense confirms the death of 3 people including 2 pilots and injury of another 2 individuals.
This comes as as several Afghanistan National Security Defense Forces (ANSDF) choppers remained in the hands of Taliban while most of them were flown to the neighboring countries like Tajikistan and Uzbekistan last year as the country fell into the hands of the Taliban.

"Huh huh! Really nice of those dumb Americans to leave us these neat helicopters!"
No fewer than 45 civilians have been killed and houses burnt by jihadists affiliated with the Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... group in an attack on a community in northern Mali.
According to AFP, a local elected official and leader of an gang confirmed the attack.
The raid was followed by intense fighting between them and other gangs in the region, including rival jihadists who have pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda, the sources said.
"More than 45 non-combatants were killed when the Islamic State took over (on Tuesday) — they burned down houses, the market and other places," the official said.
"What really worries us is the humanitarian situation — the people are on their own."
The attack occurred at Talataye, about 150 kilometers (90 miles) from the city of Gao.
An agglomeration of hamlets, it has been battered by fighting in Mali’s decade-long security crisis, lying at the heart of competing areas of influence.
An official from the Movement for the Salvation of Azawad (MSA),
…Movement for the Salvation of Azawad in full, a secular Tuareg ethnic independence movement that suddenly appeared in Mali’s Azawad in 2016…
one of the gangs involved in the festivities, put the civilian corpse count at 30 and said many people had been displaced.
"The fighting between the various jihadist groups resulted in the deaths of several dozen civilians," said an international humanitarian worker in the region, also speaking on condition of anonymity ... for fear of being murdered... "Some maimed who could not be helped died afterwards."
One of the poorest countries in the world, landlocked Mali has been battling separatist and jihadist insurgencies since 2012.
Jihadist-fuelled violence began in the north and then spread to the centre of the country before reaching into neighbouring Niger and Burkina Faso ...The country in west Africa that they put where Upper Volta used to be. Its capital is Oogadooga, or something like that. Its president is currently Blaise Compaoré, who took office in 1987 and will leave office feet first, one way or the other... Across the three countries, thousands of civilians, police and soldiers have died and millions have fled their homes.
… and selling them on to s3xual slavery throughout the Muslim world and beyond. Remember, the children of the conquered are a cash crop to be managed for the profit of Allah’s favourites as well as their personal pleasure.
I don’t care how fucked over you might be by your government, nothing justifies that level of evil.
who stood accused of terrorism has suddenly returned to the Saudi-led coalition-held Hadhramaut province in eastern Yemen ...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of... Salah Batis, one of the leaders of the Islah Party, said in a statement that "The time of dependence, surrender and submission is gone forever," referring to the fact that Hadhramaut will not be affiliated with the UAE-funded Southern Transitional Council (STC).
"Soon the world will hear Hadhramaut’s voice of truth, pride and dignity," added Batis, who is also considered the head of the Yemeni community in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund... and often resides in Istanbul, after his visit to the headquarters of the First Military Region in Wadi Hadhramaut.
According to sources familiar with the matter, Batis, after arriving at Seiyun Airport, discussed with the leadership of the first military region the need to confront the STC militia, which seeks to control the region for their separatist agenda.
Batis’ return came in defiance of the STC, with military tensions between the forces of Evil of the Islah Party and the STC militias reaching a boiling point.

[Gateway] Animal Rebellion, a group of animal and climate activists, has been causing major disruption to a number of dairy distribution facilities across the UK. This has included blocking and occupying sites as well as damaging milk trucks.
The activists had written to the office of the prime minister in August, threatening disruptive action in September if no progress was made, according to the Guardian.
The organization is advocating for a switch to plant-based alternatives to milk and dairy products as a means of combating climate change.
Twitter user Ian Miles Cheong posted a video of protesters drilling a tire of semi-trucks.

[KavkazUzel] A total of 12 Azerbaijani citizens have been repatriated from Syria, including two children left without parents, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said today.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on May 28, two adults and nine children, including two sisters who had lost their parents, were returned to their homeland from a refugee camp in the Syrian city of Jerablus .
12 citizens of the country, who were kept in the Amerna camp in the Syrian city of Jerablus, have been repatriated to Azerbaijan. Among them are two children - a brother and sister aged 7 and 10, who lost both parents, the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said today.
According to the ministry, first of all, the location, identity and belonging of the repatriated to the citizenship of Azerbaijan were determined. Then they were sent to Turkey, where Azerbaijani specialists conducted a preliminary medical and psychological examination and provided them with the necessary assistance. After that, the Azerbaijani embassy in Turkey issued certificates of return and air tickets to the repatriates .
All those who returned to their homeland upon completion of the paperwork will be transferred to their families or guardians. The Azerbaijani government intends to take all necessary measures for the reintegration and rehabilitation of repatriates, the ministry said.
Tofig Turkel, an observer for the Turan agency on the Middle East, explained earlier to the "Caucasian Knot" that in recent years the Azerbaijani authorities have been repatriating from Iraq and Syriachildren and women from the families of people who at one time went to fight in these countries as part of various armed formations. "Some created families there, and children were already born in these countries. After the liquidation of these terrorist groups, the death, arrest or flight of militants, women and children of foreigners, including Azerbaijanis, were placed in special camps, shelters or they were kept in places of detention
"As Azerbaijani citizenship is established, these people are returned back. It often happens that children have lost both parents, and the establishment of their citizenship takes some time. After the return of children without parents, they are usually given to close relatives - on the paternal or maternal side. Usually such children are taken by uncles , aunts or grandparents. If there are none, then the children are sent to orphanages",
The "Caucasian Knot" also wrote that from 2018 to the end of 2020, 248 children were returned from Iraq. In 2021, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry reported on the return of children from Iraq, Syria and Turkey. On November 24, 2021, the Azerbaijani authorities returned to their homeland 12 natives of the country who were kept in the Amerna camp in the city of Jerablus in Syria.
On March 31, seven Azerbaijani citizens were repatriated from the same camp. On May 25, two children who were kept in a correctional facility in Iraq arrived from Baghdad, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was told in the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry. The total number of Azerbaijani citizens repatriated from Iraq has reached 290.
