Inside 9/11

Apologies for the lack of posts, it's been a busy week. Fortunately, I did at least have the opportunity to watch the two-part documentary Inside 9/11 on the National Geographic Channel. The first two hours were an excellent overview of how the jihadist threat was allowed to metastasize over the course of the 1990's. Watching it should make clear that this will be a long war and that eliminating bin Laden, as desirable as that is, will not end it.

It is the second two hours, however, that are the most powerful. It is almost impossible to describe the emotions I felt as I witnessed the sights and sounds of 9/11. The events of that day are something every American should remember, and yet all too many of us have already forgotten.

National Geographic Channel is hosting an encore presentation of Inside 9/11 on Friday, August 26. The program will be shown in its entirety from 7-11 PM EDT, and 8 PM-12 AM PDT. I cannot recommend watching it strongly enough.
