Family members were worried about 9/11 when the Taliban’s deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan increased the threat level.
“This anniversary has been devastating. Debra Burlingame, whose brother was killed in the 9/11 attacks, said that she can’t help but cry about what happened in Afghanistan. “We face more danger now than September 10, 2001.”
As the 20th anniversary of Saturday’s attack on the Twin Towers approaches, New York City has elevated terror observation to a “high threat environment”. The Department of Homeland Security issued an “Environment With Increasing Threats” across the country.
Brian Sullivan (retired Federal Aviation Administration agent) told the Herald Wednesday that he sympathized and understood Burlingame.
“Everyone should be aware. “The traveling public are our last line of defence,” Sullivan stated, warning of a security breach in Logan International Airport’s security system during the months leading to the September 11, 2001 hijacking. . “It’s no longer what it sees, what it says—it’s doing something.”
Burlingame claimed that the anniversary would be “one of most horrible.” She cited Kabul’s deadly evacuation, which saw 13 soldiers die, including U.S. Marine Corps Sergeants. Johanny Rosario 25, Lawrence City. This puts the Taliban back at power.
“I’m worried. She stated that terrorists have become more sophisticated. “This has always been an attack on intelligence. It is now gone. Which country will now trust us?”
As she has been doing for the past 20 years, she will be at Arlington National Cemetery September 11th to remember her brother and all the soldiers who died in the war against terrorism.
She choked, “It’s almost unbearable” “That’s how it feels.”
Burlingame’s brother Charles “Chic” Burlingame III was the pilot of American Airlines Flight 77, which was hijacked at Washington Dulles International Airport in Dulles, Virginia, and flew to the Pentagon on September 11.
It crashed shortly after American Airlines Flight 11/United Airlines Flight 175 (both departing Logan) struck the North Tower and South Towers at the World Trade Center in Manhattan at 8.45 AM.
Burlingame is a former Navy fighter-pilot who flew F-14s away from aircraft carriers. Debra Burlingame last year stated that “people used to say he appeared in high aspirations movie because he was so beautiful.”
FAA’s Sullivan said that Afghanistan must focus on safety and not complacency. He stated that Afghanistan has “returned back to the base for planning terror.”
