    Reflections on 9/11: Keep America Safe, Free, and Prosperous

    In each century since our nation’s founding, foreign enemies have tested the strength of the American republic, our national security, and our political principles.

    Reflections on 9/11: Anniversary Inspires Reflection, Resolve

    Having spent the past decade working in law enforcement, I hold a special reflection on the upcoming 10th anniversary of the attacks of September 11. On that day, of the more than 400 rescue workers who perished, 343 firefighters and 60 police officers from New York City and the Port … More

    Morning Bell: Never Quit

    Next month, America will honor the anniversary of September 11, 2001, when terrorists  killed nearly 3,000 of our fellow citizens.

    Whom Are We at War With?

    On the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans, a new documentary accuses the Obama administration of not facing reality when it comes to terrorism. “America at Risk: The War With No Name,” presented by Citizens United and hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich, … More

    Obama Tells Woodward: "We Can Absorb Another Terrorist Attack"

    Washington is reveling this week in one of its oldest traditions – dissecting a Bob Woodward book that analyzes the sitting president. While much focus will be given to what one senior official said about another senior official, there is real news that deserves the bulk of the attention. Specifically, … More

    Remembering 9/11

    A mangled piece of the 360-foot TV and radio antenna that once topped the World Trade Tower North now stands in Washington D.C.’s Newseum, surrounded by 127 front pages of newspapers from around the world that reported on that fateful day, nine years ago. As one might expect, visitors to … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX) on Strategic Communication
