Victim’s Son Explains the Attack to Ilhan Omar: ‘There Is No Uncertainty’

Nick Haros from Ocean County New Jersey who lost his mother Francis Haros in World Trade Center reading 911 victims' names makes comments

Nicholas Haros, Jr. was wearing a black shirt with "Some people did something" as he read out the names of victims.

NY honored on Wednesday the nearly 3,000 people killed on September 11, 2001 in a solemn ceremony at Ground Zero where hijacked al-Qaida planes brought down the Twin Towers.

In commemoration of the 18th anniversary, the victims and survivors, as well as the first responders and volunteers who risked their lives to save others, will be honored Wednesday at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, which was built where the twin towers once stood.

People who were too young on 9/11 to even remember their lost loved ones, and others for whom the grief is still raw, paid tribute with wreath layings and the solemn roll call of the dead Wednesday as America marked the 18th anniversary of the worst terror attack on U.S. soil. There is no uncertainty about that.

Eighteen people were freed alive from the rubble of the towers, one of them as late as 12.30pm on September 12, but thousands more were trapped.

"But as to whom?" I was attacked, your relatives and friends were attacked.

"Our constitutional freedoms were attacked and our nation's founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked", Haros said.

During a 9/11 memorial service on Tuesday, the son of a woman who died in the World Trade Center castigated Representative Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) for the dismissive way she recently characterized the attacks that claimed the lives of almost 3,000 Americans.

Numerous reports of electoral fraud were posted on social media, although RFE/RL could not independently verify their veracity. As well as, 13 candidates received who have been nominally impartial however have been reportedly supported by United Russia .

The Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the USA are being commemorated today with mournful ceremonies, volunteering, appeals to "never forget", and by raising attention to the extended toll the co-ordinated attacks have taken on responders.

"As we remember all of the lives lost from that horrific attack 18 years ago today, let us keep in mind to not allow this type of violence to divide us, but to stand united".

Honor Guards from the city's Police and Fire Departments honored the first responders who died in the attacks with a service at the fallen police and fire memorial at Phoenix Park. "CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognize that some people did something, and then all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties".

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley - the other three members of the Democrat quartet dubbed "The Squad", sprang to Omar's defense, with Tlaib telling MSNBC that Omar's words were taken out of context.

"We have to remember that they gave everything for this job, for their communities, for their families", said Lexington firefighter Michael Hurt.

Near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the third site where planes crashed on September 11, 2001, Vice President Mike Pence credited the crew and passengers who fought back against the hijackers with protecting him and others in the US Capitol that day.

"The traders used to treat her like an office mother", he told the newspaper at the time, noting she chose to continue working that year instead of retiring."Until she couldn't physically walk or crawl, she was going to work".
