Are Sept. 11 attackers simply misunderstood freedom lovers?

I read with interest Ms Stuart’s remarks about 9/11 anniversary. Apparently the people who planned and executed this attack are mislabeled ? Are they just poor misunderstood freedom loving people who decided to massacre 3,000 innocent women children, and, oh yes, us war mongering men in the U.S.

I don’t know what country Ms Stewart hails from, but it must be the Land of Oz if she really believes that these people are not anything but religious fanatics who will gladly kill and take their own lives to kill anyone who does not believe as they do.

Yes, even I would agree that we have made our point in the wars which followed this tragedy, but as long as these people are on the defensive, they have much less ability to plan finance and execute more innocent lives. We all wish we lived in a beautiful, peaceful, “Let’s all get along,” world. Unfortunately, that has not happened in the last 5,000 years, and it is unlikely that it will anytime soon.

Thank God for the the men and women who voluntarily risk and lose their lives to keep this from happening again. That, Ms. Stewart is why we honor them on 9/11 and will continue to do so.
