It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since 9/11. For me, this day was especially painful because my fiancé had just been murdered two days prior (on my birthday).
I remember hearing the news of the World Trade Center attacks and rushing to the tv to see the actual towers crumble right before my eyes. The feeling of grief & terror is still memorable all these years later.
Thousands of innocent everyday people died and the world ultimately changed overnight. Tensions rose to an all time high and shortly after the US waged war on the Middle East sending the US economy into economic decline and recession.
There are tons of conspiracy theories surrounding this infamous day. Where were you on September 11, 2001? Do you think the “war on terror” has been won? Why or why not?
Islamic State Twitter accounts are once again under attack, following the horrific Orlando terrorist attack last weekend. More than 250 Twitter accounts allegedly associated with ISIS, or ISIL, have been hacked by a team of hackers led by a person who goes by the handle “WauchulaGhost.” While many of those accounts had been hacked before…
If there is one thing that’s for sure, you can’t just tell the FBI— no. What the FBI wants, the FBI gets, and they will go to any length to get it, especially information.
While Apple’s unwillingness to jeopardize their brand and customers’ privacy rights, (by not unlocking the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone at the Feds’ request) is commendable, the FBI found a way around it and unlocked the phone anyway. No word on what they have found yet.
In this case, they were investigating sensitive information in relation to terrorist activities of the two SanBernardino office shooters. Does that make it ok? Take the poll.

Federal officials have unlocked the cell phone belonging to one of the San Bernardino shooters, the Los Angeles Times reported.
A “third party” had come forward to help federal investigators unlock the iPhone without the help of Apple, the Times reported.
It remains unclear what the FBI found on the phone.
Prosecutors said in a statement obtained by the Times:
“We sought an order compelling Apple to help unlock the phone to fulfill a solemn commitment to the victims of the San Bernardino shooting – that we will not rest until we have fully pursued every investigative lead related to the vicious attack,” the statement said. “Although this step in the investigation is now complete, we will continue to explore every lead, and seek any appropriate legal process, to ensure our investigation collects all of the evidence related to this terrorist attack. The San Bernardino victims deserve nothing less.”

Police on Saturday charged a 17-year-old male with four counts of first-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder in a mass shooting at a school and home in a remote aboriginal community in northern Saskatchewan.
The alleged suspect can’t be named under Canada’s Youth Criminal Justice Act.
La Loche RCMP said nine people were shot in the school, including 21-year-old, Marie Janvier, a teacher’s aide who died at the scene and a male teacher identified as 35-year-old Adam Wood, who died in a hospital. The seven people wounded in Friday’s shooting at the school are hospitalized.
Police said two brothers, 17-year-old Dayne Fountaine and 13-year-old Drayden, were shot dead in a home before the gunman headed to the grade 7-12 La Loche Community School. Police responded to a call of shots fired at the school shortly after…
