Today marks the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, when thousands lost their lives, and it is also the first anniversary of the Benghazi attack, where four Americans lost their lives.

On 9/11/01, I was working at a TV station — a CBS affiliate — and like all of you, remember the rest of that day vividly. This was how it started:

When the first reports came in that a “small plane” hit the tower, I remember my boss at the time, who had been to the WTC many times (our corporate HQ was about a mile away), said “that was NO ‘small plane.’” No, it wasn’t.

One of our employees at corporate HQ in New York had a brother who worked in one of the towers, and though it wasn’t known at the time, he had called in and left a message that he wouldn’t be in the office until the afternoon because he wasn’t feeling well. Our employee didn’t know that at the time, so naturally it was a very tense few hours until he heard from his brother and found out he wasn’t in the tower when it went down.

There was one American in orbit that day. This is what it looked like:

Here’s another amazing picture:

Today also marks the one year anniversary of Benghazi, and Secretary of State John Kerry is eager to expose the truth as to what happened that day keep survivors from being interviewed by Congress.

9/11/01 and 9/11/12 — Never Forget!

Update: This is what happens when an editor doesn’t pay close enough attention when matching up thumbnail pictures to the correct headlines.

    No, not at all, Iwinski said. Having said that, if they were delivery on Oct 8 and they would declare it before us, then we would look, I don't know, for Nov or something. Because there are so few RPGs that it's really a very ridiculous concept to provide them simultaneously.
