Citizens #RememberTheCole on 12th anniversary of suicide bombing


Today is the 12th anniversary of the terrorist suicide bombing of the USS Cole by al-Qaida, which took the lives of 17 U.S. sailors in Yemen. While Twitter has been lit up for weeks as citizens attempt to untangle the truth about the Sept. 11 terrorist attack which killed four Americans in Libya, several paused to remember those who died in 2000.

Help #RememberTheCole to trend! Clinton was too busy to take action, letting bin Laden know it was ok to attack. #RememberTheCole

In June 2001, an al-Qaeda recruitment video featuring Bin Laden boasted about the attack and encouraged similar attacks #RememberTheCole

In her syndicated column, Michelle Malkin chronicles the game of political football which has delayed justice for the families of the fallen.

Justice delayed is justice denied. Read about O’s foot-dragging on Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri prosecution… #RemembertheCole

The current Democratic White House has not only delayed and denied justice to the victims and their families. President Obama’s foot-dragging administration, crawling with pro-terrorist lawyers, effectively undermines our nation’s ability to detain, contain and destroy jihad threats from within and without.

Suspected Cole bombing suspect and former Persian Gulf Operations Chief for al-Qaida Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri has been in U.S. custody since 2002 and at Gitmo since 2006. In February 2009, Obama met with Cole families and promised them justice. Then, he stabbed them in the back by ordering the (Social) Justice Department to abandon the death penalty case assembled against the al-Qaida mastermind under the Bush administration.

Feb’09 @barackobama promisd USS #REMEMBERTHECOLE Fam’s justice…then he stabbed thm in the back by ordering @thejusticedept 2abandon the case
