6,856. 9/26/2006

On September 26, 2006, President Bush said that the “9/11 attacks were the product of terrorists ‘who saw our response to the hostage crisis in Iran, the bombings [of] the Marine barracks in Lebanon, the first World Trade Center attack, the killing of American soldiers in Somalia, the destruction of the two embassies in Africa, and the attack on the USS Cole. The terrorists concluded that we lacked the courage and character to defend ourselves, and so they attacked us.’ ”
