Father of Flight 93 Hero Todd Beamer Reflects on Son Storming Cockpit, Shouting ‘Let’s Roll’ The Blaze
We will all remember Todd Beamer — the heroic young man who shouted “let’s roll” as he and fellow passengers stormed the cockpit of hijacked United Airlines flight 93 on September 11, 2001.
Beamer — who left behind two young sons and a pregnant wife — along with fellow passengers, attempted to divert the aircraft, veering it off-course from its target. Tragically, the plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Audio of that chilling moment has recently been released.
Since that mournful day, Beamer’s father, David, has become an outspoken and passionate advocate for his son and in educating the public about Flight 93.
During a segment on Fox News Friday, Beamer said that while the recordings serve as a reminder of 9/11, Americans need to know who the enemy is. He added that the public cannot forget because it is reminded daily of the threats present, and by being on heightened alert at all times.
Beamer, who believes the nation is doing its best to ready itself to combat and prevent another terror event said he doesn’t think the public is doing a good job defending itself against the “tactic of infiltration” being used by our enemy — militant Islamists, and Muslims who sympathize with the perpetrators of the September 11 attacks. “They don’t want us to salute …the stars and stripes…they want us to salute the flag of Islam,” Beamer said.
He also singled out the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) for particular scorn stating the acronym instead stands for, “Constantly Advancing Islamic Regime.”
Beamer believes the American public is “in denial” about what “their tactic of infiltration will do to our republic.”
Beamer also spoke of his son, however, stating, “We’re very proud of Todd and 39 other free people on Flight 93 that day. They had the opportunity to fight back. They did, it was a counter-attack, and it was a victory.”
“There’s a hole in our family just like so many, many other families. Not only that day, but in the days and the years since, where so many brave Americans in carrying on the fight to protect our liberty and freedom and defend our Constitution, have sacrificed their all.”
President Obama's ban on al qaeda and jihad, Bloomberg's ban on clergy and first responders will not stand. Come to the real 911 ceremony of remembrance at Ground Zero on 911 at 3:00pm on Park Place and West Broadway.
It is incumbent upon every American to remember and honor our war dead. Never forget. Join us as we honor the victims and rededicate ourselves to fighting for freedom on September 11 at West Broadway and Park Place at our 911 Freedom Rally. One 9/11 family member remarked: “I am looking forward to the rally. It is a place we can be free to really remember the who, why, when and where of 9/11. The morning ceremony” – that is, the official ceremony, from which clergy and 9/11 first responders – “is devoid of any meaning.”
