Ten Years After September 11, 2001

From the mid-1970’s through the mid-1990’s, Fulano was with an international firm of public accountants based out of Los Angeles. Over the years, there were many, many staff accountants who worked for the firm, and directly for Fulano. One of those accountants was a sweet young lady named Nasima H. Simjee. She was in her mid-20’s back then and Fulano remembers she had beautiful dark eyes and a radiant smile. Nasima came from a large family, and had three older sisters and three younger brothers. She immigrated to the United States in 1982, when she was 19-years old.

Nasima left our firm in 1991 and moved back to New York to pursue her MBA degree at Columbia University, and earned it in 1993. After graduation she remained in New York, holding a series of jobs with the Bank of New York, Sanford Bernstein and, ultimately, Nasima was a vice president for global research with Fiduciary Trust Co. She was working at her office in World Trade Center Two on September 11, 2001, and perished. Nasima was 38.

Osama Is Dead

Watercolor by Fulano.

He was not living in a cave when he died, but in a million-dollar mansion with seven-foot walls just 40 miles from the Pakistani capital, where U.S. forces killed him Sunday.

According to U.S. officials, two U.S. helicopters swept into the compound at 1:30 and 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning. Twenty to 25 U.S. Navy Seals under the command of the Joint Special Operations Command in cooperation with the CIA stormed the compound and engaged Bin Laden and his men in a firefight, killed Bin Laden and all those with him.

Two Bin Laden couriers were killed, as was one of Osama Bin Laden’s sons.

This picture is already on the networks. It sure looks like him, but experts are saying it is a fake.

9 Years Ago Today…

Nine years ago today, the US was attacked in a series of coordinated suicide attacks by al-Qaeda. On that morning, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the buildings. Both buildings collapsed within two hours, destroying nearby buildings and damaging others. The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Pennsylvania after some of its passengers and flight crew attempted to retake control of the plane, which the hijackers had redirected toward Washington, D.C. There were no survivors from any of the flights.

The death toll of the attacks was 2,996, including the 19 hijackers. Over 200 people jumped or fell to their deaths from the Twin Towers. This video shows some of those people in the last seconds of their lives.

There are more than a half-dozen long-time posters on BajaNomads who actually believe that 911 was a conspiracy of the United States government to attack its own people. These very same people offer up their “advice” on all things about Mexico.
