  5. I'm really sick of the fake patriotism and hypocrisy most Americans display in regards to this event. The majority of all the ignorant Americans who say "never forget" are the same ones who refuse to know what really happened. It's a population of programmable flesh robots who claim to have morality who are actually the furthest from morality. Never forget yet reject everything that goes against what the government and your tell-a-vision programmed you to think. None of you are actually for the victims that you claim you'll never forget but instead continue to believe and support the very groups of people who planned this event for literally decades while also supporting the naive boys who go around the world to kill more innocent people they don't know in the name of freedom that which does not even exist in the United States.

  6. I was born in 2002 in England, so I cannot imagine what any of you could have been thinking at the time of this appalling attack. Just 4 weeks ago, I visited the 9/11 memorial, and realised the real impact that the attack had on all of those New Yorkers who lost their loved ones and for those less fortunate who lost everything. You all truly have my deepest sympathies and may God bless you all.

  7. Maybe next time try not to fucking fake another attack you’re people are in sadness you did it in the 60s to frame the Cubans now in the 2000,s for oil makes me sick

  8. To all the innocent people that were murdered by their own government, I feel so sorry for you. To all the innocent people mind fucked by their own government into believing a few dudes with beards and knives did the murdering, I feel so sorry for you.

  9. How did they think and plan everything, filmed dozens of videos from different angles and started editing with airplanes on air (at that time the computers of the snenarists were what they needed, which allowed them to create the installation and graphics in a matter of minutes, when it took an ordinary man in the street whole days, and even more so when preparation was carried out before September 11, possibly several years long) I recall the TV broadcast then was broadcast in very low resolution, a maximum of 480p (like fake source videos of the same quality) everyone ate and accepted does this fake.

  10. Crazy to think if 9/11 was a person they’d be allowed to have sex now. Like this comment if you would have sex with 9/11 out of respect

  11. Rip to all those who died but never forget it was the American Government who killed their own people, not terrorists,
    2.3 trillion dollars reported missing from the pentagon 2 days before the attack, no footage of a plane hitting the pentagon which is the most secured facilty in america, plus the hole in the pentagon from the apparent plane doesnt even equate to the size of what a plane would leave along with enough jet fuel to burn for days, along with it hit a section that was under refurbishment, but the damage done amounted to that of a cruise missile, wake up america

  12. What happened the day before!

    Patrick Critton

    Patrick Dolan Critton is a former teacher from Mount Vernon, New York and the first successful aircraft hijacker in Canada.[1]
    On December 26, 1971, Critton boarded Air Canada Flight 932, a DC-9, in Thunder Bay, Ontario bound for Toronto. Armed with a handgun and a grenade, he demanded the plane to fly to Havana, Cuba.[2][3] At the time of the incident, Critton mistakenly thought he was a fugitive in New York City for a series of crimes, including bank robbery. He had fled to Canada, where he continued a life of crime.
    He released all passengers in Toronto on his way to Havana and after he deplaned in Havana, the plane returned to Toronto safely with the crew members onboard. No injuries or casualties were caused during the hijacking.
    Canada did not have an extradition agreement with Cuba regarding hijacking at the time.[4] After arriving in Cuba, Critton served an 8-month prison sentence. Following his sentence, he first worked in the sugar cane industry in Cuba. Two years later, he moved to Tanzania, where he became a teacher. He later married and had two children before returning to the United States in 1994, feeling safe from the time passed since the hijacking.
    Critton remained a fugitive until 2001, when he was found by a Canadian detective through a Google search, which at that time produced a single hit with his name that revealed the location where he was teaching. The one hit was a March 2001 article describing his mentoring of black youth in New York City.
    Critton was arrested on September 10, 2001.[5] Fingerprints on a ginger ale can found on the plane linked Critton to the hijacking. Canadian prosecutors, in order to avoid prejudicing the jury, based on the views of the recent September 11 attacks, which had happened the day after Critton was arrested, portrayed Critton to jurors not as a terrorist, but as a kidnapper and robber whose motivation was to gain the flight to Cuba.
    Critton received a five-year prison sentence for the crimes. He was released in June 2003 after 1 year and 10 months and deported to the United States.[6]

  13. May they R.I.P BUT Whilst we are at it we might want to name all the dead in the wars that followed as a result of Sept 11th in Iraq and Afghanistan which is in the millions, the American military lost more solders than actual 9/11. Two wrongs don't make a right but this does not add up why are the lives of Americans better than the lives of innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan? Also the names in Slavery and the dead Indians could do with a mention also.

  14. No one except a dumb thief plays with the security of others and then makes himself believe he will be secure. Whereas thinking people, when disaster strikes, make it their priority to look for its causes, in order to prevent it happening again.

  15. As a Canadian, I weep for my American family and love ones, and wonder why your government hasn’t declared September 11th, an official national holiday, so that this day will never be forgotten, so it will always be remembered as a day of triumph over tragedy, A day to remember and honour all those lives lost on that terrible day?

  16. Oh my god this makes me cry I want to know who is the victim can’t they understand so many people died because of them why would they do this if they don’t like America

  17. Why the Frick my birthday on on september 11 . I couldn't celebrate on 11 September cuz people will think that I am CELEBRATING 9/11
