USS New York (h/t Kevin)

Never forget. Got a story from my cousin Kevin via e-mail today. First thing I always do is Snopes anything that sounds too good to be true. Well, it is true. From the AP article on the USS New York (LPD-21):

NEW YORK - With a year to go before it even touches the water, the Navy's amphibious assault ship USS New York has already made history - twice. It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center, and it survived Hurricane Katrina...

The New York is about 45 percent complete and should be ready for launch in mid 2007. Katrina disrupted construction when it pounded the Gulf Coast, but the 684-foot vessel escaped serious damage and workers were back at the yard near New Orleans two weeks after the storm...

The USS New York is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, La., to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept. 9, 2003, "those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence," recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. "It was a spiritual moment for everybody there."

I would have named it the USS George W. Bush since it is clear according to Charlie Sheen that George W. Bush was either directly behind 9-11 or was aware of the conspiracy.

Actor Charlie Sheen has joined a growing army of other highly credible public figures in questioning the official story of 9/11 and calling for a new independent investigation of the attack and the circumstances surrounding it.

"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."

But 9-11 Conspiracy Nuts aside, here is a picture of the ship dedicated to those close to 3,000 souls that perished that day. May we all hope that the New York and the 700 Marines that it carries to the front lines of the War on Terror have the opportunity to add as many Jihadi martyrs to the 19 from 9-11 that are keeping the fires of hell warm.

Charlie is not alone. Take a look at the Senior Military, Intelligence, Law Enforcement, Government Officials, Professors, Architects, Engineers, 9-11 Survivors and Family Members who have expressed significant criticism of the 9-11 Commission Report and/or allege government complicity in 9-11:

I assume that you are simply trolling through blogs that mention 9-11 and posting your link to try to get folks to come to your site to learn "the truth about 9-11".

Thanks for stopping by and good luck. I hope the tin-foil hat protects you from the CIA stealing your thoughts.

Hey! Those tin foil hats work. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it.

On a more serious note: Justin, don't you have a JOB? Who blogs so much during the middle of the day. You lucky SOB.
