Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) contrasted American unity following the Islamic terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, with contemporary disunity, offering his remarks on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
Marlow said, “After 9/11, we were all unified. We were all together. We were all standing as one — now, not so much. Could you compare/contrast that, and is there anything that we can learn from 9/11 and maybe start drafting off of today?”
Cotton replied, “It is a notable contrast — that for the days and months after 9/11, we were fairly unified as a nation. Even our political leaders — who have severe differences of opinion when it came to the direction of the country — were relatively unified. You could look at public opinion polls, even though we had just lost 3,000 Americans in the first attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor
