Unanswered questions of September 11

Unanswered questions of September 11

By Rowan Scarborough and Jerry Seper

"Five years after the deadliest enemy attack ever on the United States, questions linger about the terror plot that toppled New York's World Trade Center, damaged the Pentagon and ignited the ongoing war on terrorism.

The killing of nearly 3,000 people on September 11, 2001, is not a 'cold case.'
But it also is not a closed case, and despite the huge body of evidence collected, unanswered questions remain."
Full article.

One of the unanswered questions, at least according to Lee Hamilton, vice chairman of the national September 11 commission, "We were never able to answer why the 19 were willing to kill themselves. What was the motivation? I am talking in a very personal way."

"What was the motivation for each one of these hijackers? I think the question of motivation was opaque to us. We just could not nail it."
He said investigators guessed at a religious motive or a political grievance against the West, or more specifically the United States.
"Why do they hate us? It's one of the fundamental questions raised again and again. We couldn't pin it down for the 19."

So there you have it. The left gets lost in it's introspection. "Why do they hate us?" Translation: "How can we get them to like us? What have we done wrong?"
