The Mark Weber Report: Firebombing Hamburg, Pearl Harbor and 9/11

September 14, 2011

Hamburg raid, 1943

Putting 9/11 in historical perspective, Weber takes a look at terrorism in history. He compares and contrasts the 9/11 horror with the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and the British-American fire-bombing of Hamburg in July 1943, which took the lives of 40,000 civilians. Weber compares how Americans marked the tenth anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack with the tenth anniversary remembrance of 9/11, and explains why the national commemorations have been so different.
