Most Believe Americans Have Forgotten 9/11

Ridgew0od NJ, Saturday will mark the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans, and voters believe many of their fellow citizens have forgotten the horrors of that day. Most now fear domestic terrorism more than a foreign attack.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that many Americans have forgotten the impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That’s slightly up from five years ago. Forty-two percent (42%) disagree that most Americans have forgotten the attacks by the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.

  1. It would be wise for all Americans who were living in 2001 to remember the deadly events (and for our young to learn) of how Islamic extremist terrorists forever changed our way of life on 9/11/2001.
    We must elect politicians who support local law enforcement and ICE working in conjunction to root out exported terrorists before they can carry out further harm to our country.
    It has been reported that there were four, not five, Islamic terrorists aboard Flight 93 on 9/11/2001 because an alert US Immigration and Customs official in Florida became suspicious of an individual with an overstayed visa and detained him. That detained individual was indeed slated to be the fifth terrorist on Flight 93.
    Sadly, the four Islamic extremist terrorists who did make it aboard Flight 93 still carried out their evil but the acute awareness of the US Immigration and Customs official in Florida
    shows the necessity that our elected politicians must fully embrace the important work of law enforcement and immigration officials and not idealistically restrict them from doing their jobs to protect us.
    We cannot trust in politicians who promote “progressive” attitudes claiming that law enforcement is “the problem” and that law enforcement should be “reimagined”.
    We know full well that without strong support for law enforcement the safety of our country will be severely diminished.
    May God be with all the brave men and women who lost their lives on 9/11/2001 and may we keep their families in our thoughts and prayers.

    God bless America.

  2. Some of our politicians are too soft
