|Article Overview: Washington
D.C. is on a Witch Hunt to find votes out of the dead bodies of the
victims of Nine Eleven. This infuriates the Sentinels of
Vigilance. Find out why.

Ground Zero Horrors Key To Washington Witch Hunt
GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Mar. 29, 2004 -- Ground Zero
survivors try their best to put the horror of the second Tuesday of
September, 2001 into some sort of livable perspective so they
don't dwell on the killing and maiming of thousands of innocent
comrades that bright, warm September day that ultimately turned the
veins and arties of a nation into icy Terror.

But that's not the goal of
politicians. They want the blood of the dead to boil.
They seek to lay the flames of blame
on someone, hopefully the President of the United States, or, at least
to smear his image with the blood of thousands of Americans for his,
or, his staff's incompetence in dealing with the Al Qaeda threat.
Despite the desire to look away or to cover
my eyes when I see headlines about the "National Commission On
Terrorist Attacks Upon The United States," I am drawn to them like the
moth is sucked into the blue-white core of the flame.

Holocaust victims become
obsessed with insuring no one ever forgets the holocaust, when, at the
same time, they wish they or their relatives had not been part of the
bloodbath that ended up killing so many and leaving them around as a
legacy of Terrorism. Leaving them as eye-witnesses to the Beast
of Terror's ravenous appetite to consume small children, pregnant
women, mothers, grandmothers by gnashing their writhing bodies between
the Beast's jaws while forcing all who stand nearby to watch while the
Beast tells them he will soon be back to feast on them, and their
children, and their Children's Children's Children.
There is such a sickness in
performing an autopsy on the bodies of nearly 3,000 victims of 9-11,
2,726 some of whom I witnessed either leaping from windows in the Twin
Towers or being crushed in millions of pounds of rubble as the
buildings fell nearly a quarter mile to punch a giant hole now called

All over the news, the grave
robbers are sucking the last ounces of blood from the victims.
A book by Richard Clarke, a former counter-terrorism advisor who was
passed over for the top job as head of Homeland Security, claims in a
new book that President Bush ignored the threat of Al Qaeda in a quest
to find a reason to go to war with Iraq.
But Clark is only one of many political
adversaries who wish to toss buckets of blood on the image of the
President and current Administration. This is an election
year and the importance of fault-finding exceeds the national priority
I was there on September 11, 2001. I
saw the madness, heard the screaming, watched the flaming bodies
leaping from the windows, felt the ground heave as the buildings
buckled and gasped what I thought were my last breaths of air as I was
nearly consumed by a blanket of dark death, the pulverized remains of
hundreds and hundreds human bodies smashed in the debris.
I am less concerned about who was at fault
three years ago than I am about who is steering the ship in what
direction today to insure we are doing our best to starve the Beast of
Terror of opportunities to rape, ravage and plunder our land again.
This is the real horror of the Washington
Witch Hunt. It is diverting attention away from the real
issue of blocking Terrorism by creating it within. The
more criticism we heap on our leaders, the less faith we have in them
to protect us, and the more Fear, Intimidation and Complacency is
bred, creating fodder for Terrorism.
Terrorism loves us to finger point at one
another as to the "blame" for the death and mismanagement of American
property and lives. The more divided we are within,
the more vitriolic we curse one another, the easier for the Beast to
slip into the backyards of the innocent and slither into the closets
and under the beds of children who wonder why the President would
abandon the safety of his people, or be so selfish as to turn his head
to the dangers of someone with a finger on the trigger of a bomb.
pointing scalds the image of our leadership
Ultimately, the finger pointing
comes down to scalding the image of our leadership in hopes that by
scarring the image a fresh new leadership will take control of the
helm and do a better job.
This Terrorism of witch hunting only
reminds us how primitive we are to use the deaths of others to advance
our own agendas. It is sickening.
People who blame others waste the asset of
Vigilance. Vigilance is a proactive use of today's energy to
strengthen the borders against the onslaught of the Beast of Terror.
And, it begins between people's ears. It begins with how we
think, for how we think dictates how we act, for we act upon what we
think about most of the time.
If we follow the news, we will be thinking
about all the mistakes we made in protecting ourselves, and seeking
someone to crucify for causing it. We will return to the
past mistakes and try to assuage the current situation by spilling
more blood, our own, through accusation and prosecution of what we
Our focus is
shifted from the slithering Beast of Terror
All this time we will shift our
focus from the horizon, where the Beast of Terror is approaching,
slithering like a viper in the underbrush of our filial fighting.
This is sad.
The dead at Ground Zero shout for us to stop
arguing over their bodies. They demand we stand up and
look at the horizon. They chant for us to become Sentinels of
Vigilance rather than Fomenters of Terrorism.
They want us to stop pointing fingers and pick up
the Sword and Shield of Vigilance. They want us to take
the Pledge of Vigilance and be more concerned with what's right for
the security of the Children's Children's Children than to try and lay
blame on the past that has been buried in rivers of tears.
Stop pointing fingers. Act.
Take the Pledge of Vigilance today.
