The War on Terror

On September 12, President Bush, while calling the attacks “acts of war,” vowed an all-out war on terror. “There will be a monumental struggle of good verses evil,” he promised. “. . . Good will prevail. . . this battle will take time to resolve.”

NATO strongly supported Bush’s case for military action. NATO Secretary-General Lord Robertson declared in that regard, “An attack on one is an attack on all. The parties will take such action as it deems necessary, including armed force.”

Donald Rumsfield assured U.S. troops worldwide that they would be called to arms “in the days ahead.” Secretary of State Collen Powell stridently promised “full-court press diplomatically, politically, militarily. . . Our spirits will not be broken. The resilience of this society will not be broken. We will find out who is responsible for this and they will pay for it.

“. . . We are, in a sense, seeing the definition of a new battlefield in the world, a 21st century battlefield. And it is a different kind of conflict.”

Attorney General John Ashcroft revealed on the same day that teams of three to six terrorists hijacked the four planes and, using pilots trained in the United States, put the aircraft on their deadly courses. According to Ashcroft, law enforcement officials had developed “credible evidence that the White House and Air Force One had been targets.” Circumstantial evidence of bin Laden’s role in the disaster was also growing.

“We have identified through a number of leads a number of individuals whom we believe may have had something to so with the hijackings, and we are pursuing those leads aggressively,” FBI Director Robert Mueller added.

According to Sen. Kay Hutchinson, five of the men suspected in the hijackings had passports from Arab countries. Other hijackers had ties to Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The fact was most of the hijackers came from supposedly friendly Arab states: Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates. According to a Boston Globe news release on September 14, investigators had evidence that the planning for the act began at least five years prior to the incident.

Fighting back the tears on September 13, as he visited New York, President Bush declared September 14 as a “national day of prayer and remembrance.” He asked Americans to spend their lunch breaks taking part in services at their chosen places of worship.

Then, turning his attention to bin Laden the president continued that the United States was now part of the “first war of the 21st century . . Now that war has been declared, we will lead the world to victory. . . There is a quiet anger in America.”

And there was a promise that this anger would result in strong retaliation. According to the Pentagon, the United States would soon launch sustained military strikes against the terrorists and their support systems. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz said in that regard, “One has to say that it’s not just simply a matter of capturing people and holding them accountable, but removing the sanctuaries, removing the support systems, ending states who sponsor terrorism.”

 

The Heroes of 911

In the mean time, New York firefighters valiantly dug into the ruins in the hopes of finding any survivors. “The firefighters of this city are not going to give up until every effort is made to rescue every firefighter or every civilian who might be in the rubble,” Harold Schaitberger, president of the International Association of Firefighters revealed. Then, referring to the hundreds of firefighters who perished under the weight of the mighty colossus, “This was the darkest day in the history of firefighters of the world. It will change every one of our lives forever.”

On September 14, with U.S. fighter jets roaring overhead, President Bush stepped unto Ground Zero (the site of the New York attack) to give a thumbs up and shake hands with the courageous firefighters who had already removed 10,000 of debris while desperately searching for a any life in the ruins. Up to that point the gallant men and women had only found two people alive since the terrorist assault. They desperately needed a shot in the arm. While grabbing an American flag and a bullhorn to personally thank the rescue workers, the president declared, “The nation sends its love and compassion.”

Suddenly, someone interrupted him, “We can’t hear you.”

“I can hear you, and the rest of the world hears you,” the president responded. “And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear us all soon!”

To that declaration the demoralized workers cheered and chanted, “U-S-A, U-S-A,” and “Go get ‘em George!”

Michael Curley, a retired firefighter, had a chance to talk to President Bush: “You got a warm feeling from the man. I needed that a little bit, so I’m going to go to my car, change my socks and go back in.”

As lawmen made their first arrest of a man suspected of having information, a State Department Official met with 15 Arab representatives and gave them a stark choice: Either they declare their nations members of an international coalition against terrorism or risk being isolated in this growing global conflict.

About the Author

 

Don Wigton is a graduate of the prestigious music department at CSULB where he studied under Frank Pooler, lyricist of Merry Christmas Darling, and sang in Pooler’s world renown University Choir alongside Karen and Richard Carpenter. During this time Don was also the lead composer of the band, Clovis Putney, that won the celebrated Hollywood Battle of the Bands. After giving his life to God, Don began attending Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa to study under some of the most prominent early Maranatha! musicians. Subsequently he toured the Western United States with Jedidiah in association with Myrrh Records.

Eventually Don served as a pastor at Calvary Chapel Bakersfield to witness thousands of salvations through that ministry. As the music/concert director, Don worked for seven years with most major Christian artist of that time while producing evangelical concerts attended by thousands of young people seeking after God. Don’s Calvary Chapel Praise Choir released the album Let All Who Hath Breath Praise the Lord on the Maranatha! label.

The next years of Don’s life were spent as the praise leader of First Baptist Church in Bakersfield during a time of unprecedented church renewal. Don teamed with the leadership to successfully meld the old with the new through a period of tremendous church growth. During this exciting time, Don’s praise team, Selah, produced the CD Stop and Think About It.

Today Don is the leading force behind Wigtune Company. This webbased project located at www.praisesong.net has provided several million downloads of Don’s music and hymn arrangements to tens of thousands of Christian organizations throughout the world.

This second of five books looks into a pivotal moment in American history that corrupted her soul. It was a time when the United States was coming off an era of prosperity created by the sound economic policies, patriotism and faith of Ronald Reagan. However, during the '90s a president without scruples took the reigns of a house united and tore it asunder. As a result we live in a divided America on the brink of judgment.
