9/11, the Pentagon, and our borders
Sitting on my home office desk is one of my most treasured possessions. It's a silver medallion inscribed "United in Memory: September 11,
2001" with a proud American eagle on one side. On the other side, the memento depicts workers at the Pentagon saluting as they unfurl a large
U.S. flag from the Pentagon rooftop.
The medal was given to me by Debra Burlingame, sister of Charles F. "Chic" Burlingame III, the pilot of American Airlines Flight 77. Jihadi
hijackers who exploited our joke of an immigration system crashed the plane into the Pentagon on 9/11 while screaming "Allahu Akbar!" I look
at the keepsake every day before I write to be reminded of this nation's strength, courage, and perseverance.
On Tuesday, the Pentagon released video images of American Airlines Flight 77 crashing into the military headquarters building. The Defense
Department released the images, recorded by a Pentagon security camera, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by
Washington, D.C.-based Judicial Watch.
I know the White House didn't intend it, but the Pentagon 9/11 video release underscores why President Bush's push for a massive "guest
worker"/enforcement-later approach to border security is such a betrayal of the memory of those who died in the attacks.
When September 11 hijackers Hani Hanjour and Khalid Almihdhar needed help getting fraudulent government-issued photo IDs before
embarking on their suicide mission, they hopped into a van and headed to the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store in Falls Church, Va. That's where
scores of illegal alien day laborers ply bogus identity documents to other llegal aliens from around the world.

As I've noted many times, I visited this 7-Eleven while reporting on the national security-immigration nexus. It is a stone's throw from the
Pentagon, where Hanjour and Almihdhar deliberately drove Flight 77 into the ground. The parking lot is still to this day often filled with
"undocumented" day laborers whom President Bush never fails to extol for doing the jobs Americans won't do (or "aren't doing," as he now
hedges.) Local cops I have interviewed suspect that most of these men are here illegally and that they continue to facilitate trade in fake
identification documents. But nobody arrests them. We are, as the Million Illegal Alien Marches have demonstrated, a de facto sanctuary
On of the illegal aliens at that 7-11 was Luis Alonso Martinez-Flores is a 28-year-old Salvadoran, who had been in the U.S. illegally since 1994.
He got in the van and directed the jihadis to a DMV Express office nearby; they obtained photo IDs using bogus residential info supplied by
Martinez-Flores. That info was also used on ID forms for two other hijackers.
The illegal alien earned $100. 184 people paid with their lives.
Three other hijackers showed up at a different Arlington DMV the same day Hanjour and Almihdhar stopped by the 7-11 illegal alien magnet.
As with many DMVs across the country, illegal aliens congregated out in the open. Victor M. Lopez-Flores, who had been previously deported
after a felony conviction but returned illegally, was one of them. He and another illegal immigrant led the hijackers to an open-borders
attorney's office, where they helped the terrorists fraudulently obtain Virginia ID cards.
While some states have tightened ID requirements, many others still allow illegal aliens to obtain driver's licenses. The Bush Treasury
Department approves the use of foreign consular ID cards exclusively for illegal aliens from Mexico. Peru, the Philippines, and Guatemala are
clamoring for the U.S. to recognize their phony ID as well.
Nearly five years later, illegal alien day laborers like the ones who unwittingly assisted the 9/11 hijackers have virtually no fear of being
arrested. Instead, they await their new "temporary" guest worker cards and eventual American citizenship in a land that has lost its memory.
And its mind.

In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild
adj : affected with madness or insanity; [syn: brainsick, crazy, demented, distracted, disturbed, mad, sick, unbalanced]
The American Heritage Dictionary
*** Warning: Unhinged liberals are hazardous to the nation's health.
They're slashing your tires. Burning your lawns. Heaving pies at Republican pundits. Hurling racist epithets at minority conservatives. Nursing nutty conspiracy theories. And pining publicly for the murder of President Bush.
And they call us crazy?
In In Unhinged: Liberals Gone Wild, Michelle Malkin plays conservative Margaret Mead to the alien political creatures of the American Left. With uproarious detail and rollicking reportage, Malkin chronicles the bizarre world of leftists gone mad in their natural habitats: the mainstream media, academia, Hollywood, and Washington.
Unhinged unmasks liberals who've completely abandoned rationality and reality. They're taking chainsaws and bayonets to campaign signs. Running down political opponents with their cars. Setting fire to political opponents in effigy. Defacing war memorials. Swiping yellow ribbons off cars. And supporting the fragging of American troops.
In Unhinged, you'll meet:
- The Top 10 Unhinged Leftists, Celebrities, Media Liberals, and Politicians. - The Pennsylvania Democrat who repeatedly screamed "faggot" at his Republican opponents on the Senate floor. - The Florida Democrat who tried to run down former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris with his Cadillac. - The Democrat congressman who claimed the capture of Saddam Hussein was staged by GOP operatives to help the Bush re-election campaign. - The veteran newsman who claimed that Bush advisor Karl Rove and Osama bin Laden are working hand-in-hand to help the Republican Party. - And hundreds more unhinged liberals gone wild!
With wit, wisdom, and a bullet-proof vest, Michelle Malkin ruthlessly and raucously skewers the myths of liberal tolerance, peace, and civility. Unhinged shows how conservatives are driving their opponents mad. The good news for liberals? Self-help starts here.
