More pictures of Dear Leader looking at things

The Guardian (UK) 2003 Apr 3 (John Gorenfeld):
Shin Sang-ok...
is a film director of legendary stature in his native country - the Orson Welles of South Korea.... He and his wife, the well-known actress Choi Eun-hee, were among Seoul's celebrity set.... Shin and his wife were kidnapped by North Korea's despot-in-training, Kim Jong-il, who sought to create a film industry that would allow him to sway a world audience to the righteousness of the Korea Workers' Party. Shin would be his propagandist, Choi his star…

And in the center circle under the big tent:
Once upon a time, there were colorful creatures known as Hippies. They were not dirty, they wore colorful clothes, and did absurdist street theater for fun. They lasted about two months and I think there were six of them, all together. Many unfortunate imitators followed. Today, the Occupiers have taken on the squalor and color of those unfortunate imitators, but apparently the mantle of absurdist street theater has been passed to the conservative bloggers crowd.

The 10th Anniversary, part 2

A few more links recalling the events, and the consequences, of September 11, 2001.

F-16 pilot was ready to give her life on Sept. 11

“We wouldn’t be shooting it down. We’d be ramming the aircraft,” Penney recalls of her charge that day. “I would essentially be a kamikaze pilot.” ... “Lucky, you’re coming with me,” barked Col. Marc Sasseville.

They were gearing up in the pre-flight life-support area when Sasseville, struggling into his flight suit, met her eye.

“I’m going to go for the cockpit,” Sasseville said.

She replied without hesitating.

“I’ll take the tail.”

It was a plan. And a pact.

'This girl lost her mom in the World Trade Center on 9-11'

"This girl lost her mom in the World Trade Center on 9-11."

Bush stopped and turned back.

"He changed from being the leader of the free world to being a father, a husband and a man," Faulkner said. "He looked right at her and said, 'How are you doing?' He reached out with his hand and pulled her into his chest."

(h/t Kathleen Gee at HillBuzz, who speaks for so many when she writes, "Thank you, Mr. President, for your concern, compassion and human decency.")

Recently in Washington, the president said he is grateful for the prayers of the people. His remarks came in a December 13 meeting with representatives from several state-based think tanks. In that meeting I observed firsthand why presidents, especially wartime presidents, need prayer.

The 10th Anniversary Passes With a Whisper

The Good News: Nothing Much Happened. Again. The Bad News: It happened.

This is a day to honor the 2,977 innocent men, women, and children slaughtered by evil Islamic jihadists — and to vow that “Never again” remains America’s operational stance, not an empty slogan.

Let nothing overshadow their memories today.

Falling Man

His identity has not been confirmed, though many have speculated over the last 4 1/2 years. Tom Junod wrote an extraordinary piece for Eqsuire in September 2003 on “The Falling Man,” offering several possibilities.

The shock of Sept. 11 has melted, but not the sorrow. It is difficult to look in on my own blissfully sleeping toddler without thinking of the empty cribs and broken hearts of children whose lives were stolen or shattered by evil terrorists. Eight children were murdered on hijacked airliners that crashed on Sept. 11.

Towers burning

One decade after 9/11, an unsettling number of images from Ground Zero and environs remain seared in our collective memory -- unsurprising, perhaps, given the scope and scale of the destruction. ...25 most stirring, visceral photographs from that day….

President Obama, Van Jones, militant leftist Lennox Yearwood, and a coalition of left-wing groups including ACORN, various labor organizations, Color of Change, Apollo Alliance, and Jesse Jackson's RainbowPUSH Coalition plotted to use the memory of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, for their own ideological ends.

Apologetic self-abnegation... is the hallmark of America’s approach today.

Attacked on our own soil and across the globe, we have refused to accept that the cause of the slaughter is the openly stated commitment of clerics, pundits, and political leaders to a barbaric ideology of religious war. Schools in Pakistan train Taliban jihadists who kill Americans while we negotiate with so-called “moderates” among them. University academics scream about American sins, praise bloody tyrannies as “liberation movements,” and call Israel “occupied territory.” Newspaper columns predict the ascendance of political Islam, while the maniacal theocracy of Iran makes the prophecy real. Clerics issue fatwas sanctioning the murder of blasphemous writers and artists. Young people are indoctrinated into jihad as the path to paradise. Killers who enjoy the ambrosia of American life murder American soldiers at American military bases.
