20 Years Later, 2 More September 11th Victims Have Been Identified
Isn’t hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since the terrorist enemy attacked America on September 11, 2001?
It was a seminal moment in American history. No doubt, you know exactly where you were and what you were doing at the time when word broke that American planes had crashed into:
- The World Trade Center Towers
- The Pentagon
- A field in Western Pennsylvania; which American heroes helped to crash the plane into the ground when they bravely fought back against the terrorist enemy.
We’ll never know for sure how many lives these brave Americans saved. But, I’m willing to say that many more Americans would have been killed.
It has always been my belief that the plane that was forced down in Western Pennsylvania was going to crash into either The White House or The United States Capitol Building.
Can you even imagine the sight of The White House or United States Capitol Building in flames?
Here is another amazing American accomplishment.
20 years after the attacks, two more World Trade Center victims have been formally identified.
These are the first identifications since October 2019.
“20 years ago, we made a promise to the families of World Trade Center victims to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to identify their loved ones, and with these two new identifications, we continue to fulfill that sacred obligation,“ said Barbara Sampson, Chief Medical Center in a statement.
”No matter how much time passes since September 11, 2001, we will never forget, and we pledge to use all the tools at our disposal to make sure all those who are lost can be reunited with their families,“ said Sampson.
New identification techniques are now available because of advances in DNA science that did not exist previously.
America now has the capability of doing advanced testing to match DNA fragments from victims with samples provided by their relatives.
The medical examiner's office announced that its recent adoption of next-generation DNA sequencing technology means that further identifications are likely in the future.
This almost sounds like science fiction, but, it is happening for real.
The 1,646th victim has been identified as Dorothy Morgan, of Hempstead, Long Island, New York.
Morgan was positively identified by remains that were found in 2001.
The identity of the 1,647th victim is being withheld at the request of his family.
His identification was confirmed through DNA testing of remains recovered in 2001, 2002, and 2006, according to the public statement released.
There are still 1,106 victims who died on September 11, 2001, who remain unidentified.
This represents a full 40 percent. These families have not received proper closure.
NOTE: Every September 11th, or, on the Friday before September 11th … we replay our actual 9:00 a.m. hour from September 11, 2001 … when the terrorist enemy hit America in real-time.
This Friday, September 10, 2021, for the 9:00 a.m. hour we will once again replay this as the events continued to unfold.
This special remembrance can be heard on: WPG Talk Radio 95.5, 1450 AM and the WPG Talk Radio smartphone app.
It is always such a profound moment of our broadcast year made, even more, special this year with it being 20 years since the terrorist attacks.
Simultaneously, it is heartbreaking and deeply disturbing to witness the events of the past few weeks, whereby The Taliban has taken control of Afghanistan and The Biden Administration has actually heavily armed The Taliban and left Americans, other allies, and media members behind to fend for themselves in Afghanistan.
No doubt, The American people will have to endure that The Taliban will be celebrating their “victory” with despicable propaganda on September 11, 2021.
