Letter from the Polish on 9/11

Here is a letter we received on 9/11 from the Polish command here on Bagram:

Bagram All,

On 11 Sept. when terrorist affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four jet

airliners and then intentionally crashed them into the Twin Towers,

Pentagon and Shanksville, we saw that all of America was touched by this

huge tragedy. "Enemies of freedom" committed an act of war against your

country. We saw the United States of America had to face a new

challenge, but the attack on your freedom was also the attack on other

democratic countries, so we understood that this terror cannot go


Today we are together with you in the common operation in Afghanistan,

because we remember the morning of 11 Sept. and wounds to your country

inflicted by terrorists from a criminal organization. We are not able

to accept such a senseless attack, killing thousands of innocent people,

because we will never accept terrorism in the World.

We will remember 11 Sept. It changed our generations and our history.

We have realized since that tragedy we are in danger, and we have every

reason to be fearful. Because we want things to go back to normal we

have to be together against people who try to destroy it.
