A response to support Debra Burlingame’s May 27 WSJ article


Debra Burlingame is the sister of American Airlines pilot Charles “Chic” Burlingame. Charles was murdered on September 11, 2001, serving as the pilot of Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon Building. His plane was hijacked shortly after take-off and after a 6 minute 30-second struggle with the terrorists, he was killed, and the terrorists then took control of the plane.

Before I go any further, I feel readers should watch (time permitting) a video re-enacting Flight 77 on that fateful day at the following link-

In my opinion, Debra did an excellent job laying out her case to prove that to compare the events of 9/11 with those that took place in the US Capitol Building on January 6 of this year “tells a false story to the generation of Americans who are too young to remember that day nearly 20 years ago” as she puts it.

Therefore, I want to add a few observations of my own which I feel further strengthens Debra’s article. After watching the abovementioned video, one of the most important facts arising from the film is when the terrorists went through a security check before boarding the plane, security personnel saw that their luggage contained knives.

Instead of taking them aside and demanding to know why they were carrying knives and doing a further body check for any other weapons, they were all allowed to board the plane. According to what I remember from the video, the security agents had not been warned of any threat to passengers and crew up until that time. And the coordinated terrorist attacks which took place on 9/11 by many individuals collaborating together were not something that security personal had dealt with before.

But once those terrorists were allowed to board the plane carrying those knives, the passengers and crew were no match for the terrorists.

It is unclear what really took place in the aircraft after the terrorists took over because they cut off all communication with the control tower. The video says that the black boxes gave no indication of what took place in the cockpit.

But based on phone calls from passengers on board the other planes that were hijacked that day, it was clear the terrorists murdered passengers and crew like a butcher slaughters animals. Any human being committing such a crime should be classified also as an animal.

And up until 9/11, on most cases, planes that were hijacked usually would be taken to some other destination where government authorities would have to negotiate with the hijackers. But in the case of 9/11, the animal mentality of all the hijackers resulted in reaching their goal of destroying buildings and lives of innocent men, women and children.

As the years passed, more terrorist groups sprang up in the Middle East such as ISIS. And now they became bold enough to advertise how they execute their prisoners via videos broadcast throughout the world.

Terrorism, Terrorists And Their Supporters Must Be Eliminated

Al Qaeda, and its leader, which was responsible for 9/11 has been reduced to rubble itself. It is obvious Debra Burlingame is correct and proves there is no relationship between the January 6 events at the Capitol Building and 9/11.

Instead, the Democrats should now concentrate their efforts to investigate and bring to justice all those responsible for the looting, rioting, killings, and arson that took place following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The “Many Things Some People Said And Did” In Congress And Were Never Punished

Speaking of Minneapolis, which lies in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, Rep. Ilhan Omar has never been investigated since she took office despite all the evidence that exists against her.

She admitted to watching terrorist videos while at University and was seen smiling every time Al Qaeda’s name was mentioned.

Al Qaeda is the group responsible for killing 3000 people during 9/11, including Debra’s brother.

If Congress continues to refuse to investigate lawmakers such as Omar and the Squad, perhaps Debra Burlingame should seriously start a movement to eliminate terrorist supporters from Congress.

This should help reduce Anti-Semitism and other hate crimes in America.
