Last year I dedicated a page to some of the heroes of that fateful day nine years ago. In a chilling interview taped over 3 years prior to the attacks that took his life, Rick Rescorla talks about the future he sees for the country and the challenges it faces….chilling. He also offers some views that are quite shocking on other topics (such as the US involvement in Vietnam, but hey he got his hands both dirty and bloody in that conflict so the right is his to do so) but all in all, he pretty much predicts the nature of the attacks on 9/11.
“..hunting down terrorists, this will be the nature of war in the future.”
~Rick Rescorla, July 28th, 1998
God bless all of the victims of 9/11, the service members and other American and Foreign allies that have served, fought and died fighting terrorism since 9/11 and my he protect all those that continue to do so.
"Today is a day to be proud to be an American, Tomorrow the world will be looking at you, and the world is still looking as us.”
~Rick Rescorla, to members of Morgan Stanley on the morning of 9/11/2001
