Google Ignores 9/11, Yet Again; Interview w/ Pentagon Survivor; UPDATE: Bing Remembers, Dogpile, Too
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATES ****
Every day, on this site, we recognize the ongoing threat of Islam from without and within this country’s borders. So 9/11 is not an unusual day where we suddenly remember again that, “Oh, yeah! Muslims attacked us. Now, let’s get back to Oprah’s favorite things and Brangelina.”
On google, today, is also like every other day on that site. And, as we’ve noted in past years (and so has our friend, Preston Taylor Holmes of Six Meat Buffet), this isn’t the first time. Reader Eric:
I think it’s worthy to note that Google, who changes their logo for every marginal holiday, has done nothing to note 9/11. This bothers me at some very deep level. While others in the blogosphere have commented, I think something like this deserves the level of exposure which you can bring to bear. Other search engines have managed to take note of the occasion, why not the 800 lb gorilla?
Because Google goes out of its way to ignore a lot of important, patriotic American holidays and somber occasions of note–that’s why. And that should tell us all something. Google loves being in its swanky offices America, and its execs and two creators love living in their swanky American homes with all the accoutrements one can dream of. But when it comes to actually loving America and respecting it, well . . . not so much.
Meanwhile, someone who does respect America, Jim Bennett, has a good interview with Lt. Col. Brian Birdwell, a 9/11 Pentagon survivor and his wife, Mel, who are devout Christians. Read it.

And, last but not least, reader Doda McCheesle made this great 9/11 sign that is the real 9/11 Truth!
**** UPDATE: Reader Shawn points out that, unlike Google, the Bing search engine does in fact remember the 9/11 attacks today and sends this image:
**** UPDATE #2: Many readers have noted that Dogpile remembered 9/11, too. UNLIKE Google.
