ZEITGIEST - THE MOVIE
YOU DON'T KNOW TRUTH IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THIS FILM

 

[Actual final death total is 2645]
[Estimated total of deaths and injured is 3400]
[This is based on body parts - some people have not been identified]
The official death toll has fluctuated frequently since two hijacked passenger planes were flown into the 110-storey twin towers of the World Trade Centre at a time when tens of thousands were normally in the vicinity of the lower Manhattan complex.
Some of the 40 taken off the list were originally reported missing by people living overseas.
"Two or three are still being investigated, so those could still be removed in the future.
"Some people were duplication, some were alive and didn't even know they had been reported missing; There are Other people who claimed people were missing who didn't even exist," she said.
Since the tragedy, it has been discovered some people invented the names of people to fraudulently claim compensation from the city.
New York police have arrested 40 people falsely claiming they lost loved ones. Other names removed yesterday included people whose relatives said they were near the towers at the tim*e but can give little more information. 

KEY WITNESS COMMITS SUICIDE

Bombs in the basement
The Daily News reported yesterday that Kenny Johannemann - a key witness in the WTC 9/11 bombings - recently committed suicide.

I call him a key witness because in spite of aggressive prodding from reporters about "the planes," he clearly called what happened on the upper floors of the World Trade Center "explosions."

More important, Johannemann reported a massive explosion in the basement of one of the Twin Towers and rescuing someone who received full body burns from an explosion that took place at the base - not the top - of the building.

(The Daily News obscured this part of the story in their report today.)

The suicide note purportedly left by Johannemann stated that he had "lost friends and family" over "his drinking" which the letter attributes to his depression since 9/11.

Here is the entire text of the note as reported in the Daily News:

"The reason I killed myself was 'cause I was getting evicted and can't handle homelessness. I was also very depressed since 9/11. I've been drinking way too much and it's ruined my life. I've lost friends and family over drinking and I'm very lonely. There is nothing left for me to be happy about other than my cat. Sounds weird, but it's true. I just wanted to say I'm sorry 2 any people I ever hurt in my life. I really was a good person when I wasn't drinking. I hope people remember that.

Goodbye!!!

Kenny Johannemann"

I wonder if the person who wrote this suicide note bothered to spend any time listening to Johannemann speak.

Johannemann had a large extended family and large social network which, according to his cousin Gerald Maya, universally held him in high regard. Maya had offered him a place to live.

You have to ask yourself two things:

1. Would a man shoot himself in the head because he faced eviction when he had a family and social safety net like that?

2. Would someone as well spoken as Johannemann demonstrated himself to be on live TV, write a suicide note that sounds more like a teen aged boy's text message than a grown man's final testament?

Keep in mind that there are other people, more visible than Johannemann, who are actively telling the same story he did in public venues. You can bet that Johannemann's "suicide" has sent them a message loud and clear about their safety or lack of it.

In case you were concerned about them, these eye witnesses are alive and well:
 

I saw the planes, the fire melted the buildings and (long term CIA asset) Osama bin Laden did it!

Nearly Half of NY Sept. 11 Dead Cannot Be Identified

Wed Feb 23, 2005 
By Timothy Gardner
NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York authorities have ended efforts to identify victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, leaving the remains of nearly half the 2,749 people killed in the World Trade Center unidentified, the city's medical examiner said on Wednesday.

Some 9,720 unidentified bone and tissue fragments have been sealed and stored in case developments in technology allow for identification in the future, said Ellen Borakove, spokeswoman for the medical examiner's office.

Of those killed, 42 percent remain unidentified due to difficulties in getting DNA samples from the remains.

"The remains have become deteriorated. Some have no DNA, and some have only partial DNA," Borakove said.

The medical examiner's office has identified 1,585 victims, but progress has slowed to a halt on 1,161 victims. Only eight remains have been identified since September.

Three people injured in the attacks died later of their wounds.

For family members of those who died, the identification process can be comforting, said Anne Mulderry, whose son Stephen's remains were identified.

"At first it was a great blow, but afterwards it was a great comfort when his remains were found," she said. "I do pray for people who have not been allowed that."


The unidentified remains will be placed in a memorial when the World Trade Center complex is rebuilt, Borakove said.

"They will be part of the memorial, but will always remain accessible to us," she said. "When technology changes, which we fully expect it will, we will be able to retrieve the remains."

Family members of all those killed in the World Trade Center attacks will be notified by New York officials about plans for the remains in the yet-to-be-built memorial.

Artists Rendering of the USS New York
May, 2006

 

With a year to go before it even touches the water, the Navy's amphibious assault ship USS New York has already made history. It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center.

It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, La., to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept. 9, 2003, "those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence," recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. "It was a spiritual moment for everybody there."

Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the "hair on my neck stood up."

"It had a big meaning to it for all of us," he said. "They knocked us down. They can't keep us down. We're going to be back."

The ship's motto? - 'Never Forget'

 

  The South Tower begins to collapse, after United Airlines Flight 175 hits the building just after 9 a.m. on September 11, 2001

Officials raise estimate of death toll on lower WTC floors

Believe more people died below impact site

Wednesday, July 21, 2004

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal investigators analyzing evacuation patterns at the World Trade Center estimate more people than previously thought died below the areas hit by the hijacked planes.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is conducting an extensive review of the collapse of the towers. Between 567 and 610 people died below the impact floors, "somewhat higher than previously thought," lead investigator Shyam Sunder said Tuesday.

The NIST has tried to determine where people died to better understand evacuation responses and craft recommendations that would make skyscrapers safer.

The agency's interim figures estimate 1,466 building occupants died in World Trade Center Tower 1, the vast majority, 1,356 people, at or above the impact site. In Tower 2, the second to be struck, 624 office workers were killed, and only six of those were below the impact site. More than 400 emergency responders were killed in the twin towers below the impact floors.

NIST also has determined 30 other people were killed in the towers below the impact sites, without being able to say which building they were in.

Sunder said between 1,974 and 2,017 people died at or above the areas of impact, a figure slightly below previous estimates. He said the shift may be explained by the lowering death toll since the first calculations were made in 2002. NIST said it still had no information on where 17 people died.

Tallying information

The main source of information for the analysis came from 300 in-person interviews conducted by the NIST and about 800 phone interviews.

In many cases, the agency was able to use employees' building identification information to determine on which floors they worked. That information was cross-checked against survivor accounts of their evacuations.

The investigators also tallied information gleaned from press accounts and a Web site dedicated to victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks.

The agency had previously estimated that between 16,200 and 18,600 people were in the buildings.

It also determined 18 bystanders or occupants of nearby buildings were killed.

The institute's investigation began two years ago in an effort to determine why the towers collapsed and use those lessons to recommend improvements in building codes, evacuation procedures and other standards. Its final report is due in December.

  9/11 Commission Hears Flight Attendant's Phone Call

'I Don't Know, but I Think We're Getting Hijacked'

By HOPE YEN, AP

WASHINGTON (Jan. 28, 2004) - The calm voice calling from American Airlines Flight 11 belied the mayhem unfolding on the jetliner: a hijacking was under way, three people were stabbed, the cockpit was silent.

''The cockpit is not answering their phone,'' flight attendant Betty Ong told the American Airlines operations center shortly before the plane slammed into the World Trade Center. ''There's somebody stabbed in business class, and we can't breathe in business. Um, I think there is some Mace or something. We can't breathe.

''I don't know, but I think we're getting hijacked.''

Ong, 45, known as ''Bee,'' of Andover, Mass., was working coach class on the American Airlines Boeing 767 flying from Boston to Los Angeles on Sept. 11, 2001, before suspected 9-11 ringleader Mohammed Atta and four others took over the plane and crashed it into the North Tower of the Trade Center.

Nydia Gonzalez, on duty at the operations center that morning, told the panel how she received Ong's call at about 8:20 a.m.

Several media accounts of what occurred on Flight 11 claimed that Betty was 'hysterical with fear,' 'shrieking' and 'gasping for air,''' Gonzalez said. ''Those accounts were wrong.''

''In a very calm, professional and poised demeanor, Betty Ong relayed to us detailed information of the events unfolding on Flight 11,'' Gonzalez added.

The Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States heard portions of Ong's 23-minute conversation with the operations center on the second of a two-day hearing Tuesday.

In it, Ong tells the operations center her flight and seat number and describes the scene on board.

''I'm sitting in the back. Somebody's coming back from business. If you can hold on for one second here, they're coming back.

''Our No. 1 (flight attendant) got stabbed. Our purser is stabbed. Nobody knows who stabbed who. We can't even get up to business class right now, because nobody can breathe. Uh, our No. 1 is stabbed right now.

''Our No. 5, our first class passenger, er, our first class galley flight attendant and our purser have been stabbed. And we can't get into the cockpit. The door won't open.''

''We can't even get into the cockpit. We don't know who's there,'' Ong says, before the call ends in a dial tone.

The Boeing 767 rammed into the World Trade Center's north tower at 8:46 a.m.

Hijackers conducted surveillance flights ahead of 9/11

Friday, September 27, 2002

FBI Director Robert Mueller

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The hijackers who took over four airplanes on September 11, 2001, and carried out the worst-ever terror attacks on U.S. soil conducted several surveillance flights prior to that day, according to newly-declassified information released Thursday.

One of those flights was on the same route as the plane that was crashed into the Pentagon.

The information was made public during a hearing conducted by the House and Senate intelligence committees. It came from a statement by FBI Director Robert Mueller -- made at a closed-door hearing in June -- about how the hijackers entered the United States and prepared their attack without arousing any suspicion.

"Meetings and communications between the hijackers were done without detection, apparent surveillance flights were taken, and nothing illegal was detected through airport security screening," Mueller's statement said.

"In short, the terrorists had managed very effectively to exploit loopholes and vulnerabilities in our systems. To this day, we have found no one in the United States except the actual hijackers who knew of the plot and we have found nothing they did while in the United States that triggered a specific response about them," he added.

Mueller said his remarks could not include a discussion of Zacarias Moussaoui because of the case pending against him. Moussaoui faces six conspiracy charges and a possible death penalty for his involvement with al Qaeda, the Islamic terrorist group behind the attacks.

Each of the return flights taken on the preparatory missions included a one-to-two day layover in Las Vegas, but Mueller said the purpose of the stops in that city is not known.

The FBI chief also disclosed for the first time that hijackers including Nawaf al Hazmi and ringleader Mohammed Atta had monthly, face-to-face meetings to discuss their deadly plan. More than 3,000 people were killed in the September 11 attacks.

Mueller: Terrorists 'were not supermen'

Mostly, the hijackers blended in to American society, Mueller said.

"They dressed and acted like Americans, shopping and eating at places like Wal-Mart and Pizza Hut," he said.

Aside from minor traffic violations, they committed no crimes, and al Hazmi even reported an attempted street robbery on May 1, 2001, to Fairfax, Virginia, police, although he later declined to press charges.

Mueller said the September 11 attack plan was conceived and carried out using simple means.

"Clearly, these 19 terrorists were not supermen using extraordinarily sophisticated techniques. They came armed with simple box cutters," he said.

"But they also came armed with sophisticated knowledge about how to plan these attacks abroad without discovery, how to finance their activities from overseas without alarm, how to communicate both here and abroad without detection, and how to exploit the vulnerabilities inherent in our free society.

"There were no slip-ups. Discipline never broke down. They gave no hint to those around them what they were about," Mueller's statement continued. "They came lawfully. They lived lawfully. They trained lawfully. They boarded the aircraft lawfully. They simply relied upon everything from the vastness of the Internet to the openness of our society to do what they wanted to do without detection."

His remarks were released as top counter-terrorism officials defended their various agencies to lawmakers. Both CIA and FBI officials said they did the best job they could given the resources they had to work with.

Responding to criticism that the FBI missed clues about the use of aircraft by terrorists, the FBI's counter-terrorism chief said those clues came amid a torrent of other intelligence information.

"We had threats to malls, threats to power plants, threats to assassinations, across the board we had threats coming in every day," said Dale Watson, executive assistant director of the FBI.

In his statement, Mueller praised the work of his agency, especially after September 11, but admitted "there were clearly things we should have done better or differently."

And he warned that the threat from terrorists has not subsided.

"Those who masterminded and financed these attacks are still capable of doing so. Capturing a number of important operatives has been a huge victory but there are others, still loosely connected and still a potent threat," Mueller said.

"Nor should we forget that thousands of 'foot soldiers' -- those who trained in the camps -- remain disbursed. And there are those who, without direction or control, are compelled for ideological reasons to pursue jihad and kill Americans."

Mueller said the FBI needs new structures, new training and new technologies, which are now being put in to place.

"Nothing can be paramount to preventing the next attack," he said.

CNN Justice Department Correspondent Kelli Arena contributed to this report.

This is how it used to look

• The World Trade Center had two 110-story buildings, known as the "Twin Towers" and five smaller buildings.

• Tower One was 1,368 feet (414 meters) tall

• Tower Two was 1,362 feet (412 meters) tall

• The Twin Towers were the tallest until the Sears Tower surpassed them.

• Architects: Minoru Yamaski & Associates and Emery, Roth & Sons.

• Built of aluminum and steel.

• The foundation of each tower extended more than 70 feet below ground, resting on solid bedrock.

• Constructed on six acres of landfill.

• The towers were the best known examples of "tube buildings," which are strenghtened by closely spaced columns and beams in the outer walls.

• Each tower consisted of 104 passenger elevators and 21,800 windows.

• About 50,000 people worked in the complex, which housed the offices of more than 430 businesses from 26 countries.

• Completed in 1970.

• Automatic window-washing machines cleaned 600,000 square feet of glass.

Survivors may be still in Trade Center rubble

September 11, 2001 Posted: 11:51 PM EDT (0351 GMT)

NEW YORK (CNN) -- FBI agents targeted homes and post office boxes in south Florida for searches late Tuesday with warrants based on passenger lists from the hijacked planes used in the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington earlier in the day.

In New York, rescue crews continued to search for survivors in buildings near the destroyed towers of the World Trade Center.

"We do know that there are people in the building that are alive, and we are making every effort to get to them," New York Police Commissioner Bernard B. Kerik said late Tuesday night.

The FBI used information from the planes' passenger lists to obtain search warrants for more than one location in south Florida, including homes and post office boxes, a law enforcement source told CNN.

"We're looking at south Florida ties to some of the people we're looking at," the source said. One search will made at a location in Daytona, the source said.

16.37PM GMT Thousands of people are feared dead following suicide plane-crash attacks on the World Trade Center, in New York today.

Twenty-five thousand people were thought to be working in the twin towers of World Trade Center in New York at the time of the kamikaze assaults. Both of the 110-storey towers collapsed within two hours of the onslaught.

Up to eight airplanes are said to have been hijacked,

US air authorities say that three planes are unaccounted for.

Yasser Arafat has condemned the attacks, but current speculation still puts the blame on Palestianian separatists. All Israeli embassies in the US have been evacuated as has the UK stock exchange.

Among those presumed dead are the New York Fire Department's deputy chief and first deputy commissioner. Also presumed dead is Ray Downey, who led the NYFD team that helped out after the bombing in Oklahoma City.

President Bush suggested Tuesday how high the death toll may rise when he said "thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror."

He also issued a warning to any nation that may be giving refuge to those responsible for the terrorist attacks on the United States.

"We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them," the president said from the Oval Office of the White House as he promised retaliation.

Two planes hit World Trade Center

September 11, 2001 Posted: 9:32 AM EDT (1332 GMT)

NEW YORK (CNN) -- In what President Bush called a terrorist attack, two planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers on Tuesday, leaving them both in flames from explosions in a terrifying scene as black clouds of smoke billowed over Manhattan.

About 18 minutes after the first plane hit the northern tower, a second plane slammed into the southern tower, erupting into a huge fireball. The harrowing images were caught in live video.

Live pictures showed a gaping hole on the side of the northern building, several stories down from the top. Black smoke was billowing from at least two sides.

The second crash hit the second tower several stories lower than the first in a huge burst of flame.

Sean Murtagh, a CNN vice president, was in an office near the World Trade Center towers at the time of the first crash. He witnessed the crash.

"It was a jet, looked like a two-engine jet," Murtagh said. "It looked like maybe a 737."

Murtagh said he saw the plane "teetering back and forth, wingtip to wingtip" before the plane smashed into the side of the building.

Jeanne Yurman witnessed the explosion that followed the crash.

"At first it was like leaflets," she said, describing the debris that fell to the ground. "There was tons of debris and it continues to fall out."

Yurman said she did not see the plane.

Planes Crash Into World Trade Center

The Associated Press

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001; 9:33 a.m. EDT

NEW YORK –– Planes crashed into the upper floors of both World Trade Center towers minutes apart Tuesday in a horrific scene of explosions and fires that left gaping holes in the 110-story building.

There was no immediate word on injuries or fatalities in the twin disasters, which happened shortly before 9 a.m. and then right around 9 a.m.

President Bush has called the World Trade Center crashes an apparent terrorist attack

The FBI is investigating reports that two plane crashes at the World Trade Center are the result of foul play, The Associated Press has learned.

A senior government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the agency is pursuing reports that one or both of the planes were hijacked and that the crashes may have been the result of a suicide mission.

The source stressed that the reports are preliminary and officials do not know the cause of the crashes.

"It certainly doesn't look like an accident," said a second government official, also speaking on condition of anonymity.

The towers were struck by bombers in February 1993.

"The plane was coming in low and ... it looked like it hit at a slight angle," said Sean Murtagh, a CNN vice president, the network reported.

Large holes were visible in sides of the 110-story buildings, landmark twin towers.

"I was watching TV. and heard a sonic boom ...," witness Jeanne Yurman told CNN. "The side of the world trade center exploded. Debris is falling like leaflets. I hear ambulances. The northern tower seems to be on fire."

The tops of the twin towers were obscured by the smoke.

Thousands of pieces of what appeared to be office paper came drifting over Brooklyn, about three miles from the tower, one witness said.

The center bombing on Feb. 26, 1993, killing six people and injured more than 1,000 others.

In 1945, an Army Air Corps B-25, a twin-engine bomber, crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building in dense fog.

Terror Attack Destroys Trade Center

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001; 12:32 p.m. EDT

NEW YORK –– In one of the most audacious attacks ever against the United States, terrorists hijacked two airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center in a coordinated series of blows Tuesday that brought down the twin 110-story towers. A plane also slammed into the Pentagon, bringing the seat of government itself under attack.

Thousands could be dead or injured, a high-ranking city police official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"I have a sense it's a horrendous number of lives lost," Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said. "Right now we have to focus on saving as many lives as possible."

Authorities had been trying to evacuate those who work in the twin towers, but many were thought to have been trapped. About 50,000 people work at the Trade Center. American Airlines said its two aircraft were carrying a total of 156 people.

"This is perhaps the most audacious terrorist attack that's ever taken place in the world," said Chris Yates, an aviation expert at Jane's Transport in London. "It takes a logistics operation from the terror group involved that is second to none. Only a very small handful of terror groups is on that list. ... I would name at the top of the list Osama bin Laden."

President Bush ordered a full-scale investigation to "hunt down the folks who committed this act."

Within the hour, an aircraft crashed on a helicopter landing pad near the Pentagon, and the White House, the Pentagon and the Capitol were evacuated.

One of the planes that crashed into the Trade Center was American Airlines Flight 11, hijacked after takeoff from Boston en route to Los Angeles, the airline said. American Airlines issued a statement saying it had "lost" two aircraft – Flight 11, with 92 people aboard, and Flight 77 from Washington to Los Angeles, carrying 64 people.

In Pennsylvania, United Airlines Flight 93, a Boeing 757 en route from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco, crashed about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The fate of those aboard was not immediately known and it was not clear if the crash was related to the disasters elsewhere. In a statement, the airline also said it was deeply concerned about another plane, Flight 175, a Boeing 767 bound from Boston to Los Angeles.

Authorities went on alert from coast to coast, halting all air traffic, evacuating high-profile buildings and tightening security at strategic installations. The Situation Room at the White House was in full operation.

At the World Trade Center, "everyone was screaming, crying, running, cops, people, firefighters, everyone," said Mike Smith, a fire marshal. "It's like a war zone."

"I just saw the building I work in come down," said businessman Gabriel Ioan, shaking in shock outside City Hall, a cloud of smoke and ash from the World Trade Center behind him. "I just saw the top of Trade Two come down."

Nearby a crowd mobbed a man on a pay phone, screaming at him to get off the phone so that they could call relatives. Dust and dirt flew everywhere. Ash was 2 to 3 inches deep in places. People wandered dazed and terrified.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Terrorists struck the United States Tuesday morning in harrowing, widespread attacks that included at least three commercial jet crashes into significant buildings.

• In the first attack, a plane smashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in Manhattan shortly before 9 a.m., followed by another plane into the second tower about 20 minutes later. Both towers later collapsed. Sources told CNN that one of the planes was an American Airlines Boeing 767 that had been hijacked after take-off from Boston.

• About an hour later, a plane crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, part of which later collapsed.

• Sources say a second plane was heading toward the Pentagon; F-16 jets were in the air monitoring it.

• The Pentagon, the White House, the State Department, the Justice Department, the Capitol and all other government buildings in Washington evacuated.

• In the first ever national ground stop of aircraft, all flights nationwide have been stopped at their departure airports.

• All international flights were diverted to Canada.

• Israel has evacuated all its missions around the world.

• President Bush cancelled an appearance in Florida to return to Washington, calling the crashes "apparent terrorist attacks" and "a national tragedy."

• In Chicago, the Sears Tower was evacuated; United Nations in New York evacuated.

• The New York Port Authority said it had closed all bridges and tunnels into the city.

• New York's Bellevue Hospital was designated command central for handling the catastrophe. Several hospitals have already reported receiving victims with burns and head injuries.

• Large plane crashed 80 miles south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but it was unknown if this crash was connected to terrorist attacks. (This was flight 93 which was supposed to go to Washington D.C. in another terrorist attack. The pilot of this plane is a HERO!!!! He had to have fought off the terrorists.)

• U.S. stock markets were closed after the New York attacks.

US apparently hit by terrorist attack

Tuesday, 11 September 2001 10:34 (ET)

By MARTIN WALKER

WASHINGTON, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- The stark prospect of a coordinated terrorist assault on the United States suddenly exploded into apparent reality Tuesday as explosions that followed two plane crashes at the World Trade Center in New York collapsing both towers, and eyewitnesses saw another plane crash into the Pentagon near Washington.

In Washington, government buildings including the White House, Pentagon and State Department were evacuated.

"Terrorism against our nation will not stand," said President George W. Bush in Sarasota, Fla., as he prepared to fly back to Washington.

"We will hunt down those responsible."

For the first time in history, all commercial flights across America were suspended by the Federal Aviation Administration, and airports were closed as the FBI began putting emergency anti-terrorist plans into motion.

The skylines of Washington and New York looked as if they were under military assault, and as the south tower of the Trade Center began to crumble, the billowing smoke shrouded the whole of southern Manhattan, drifting across to shroud in sudden darkness the Statue of Liberty.

"The whole building is crumbling, it's going down," came a New York City Police Department radio call.

There was no immediate word on casualties. There also were no immediate claims of responsibility for the apparent attacks.

In Washington, security services began evacuating the U.S. Capitol and all the buildings that comprise the nerve center of American government. An emergency team of the national security council was meeting in the White House situation room as the order came to evacuate the building.

America's day of drama began at 8:48 a.m., when what eyewitnesses said was a World War II-era DC-3 aircraft flew, apparently deliberately, into one of the two towers of the World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan.

Then shortly before 9 a.m., a plane, which CNN reported as a hijacked American Airlines Boeing 767 passenger jet en route from Boston to Los Angeles, flew into the second tower from the ocean.

Then came the report of a fire at the Pentagon near Washington, and smoke began to billow over Washington, after witnesses reported a large explosion, and at least one account of "something" - an aircraft or a missile -- flying into the vast building that runs the U.S. military.

An eyewitness told CNN she saw what looked like a commercial airplane crash into the Pentagon.

Almost immediately, an emergency was declared at the White House by the Secret Service, who began evacuating the building and the neighboring U.S. Treasury Department, and reports from Chicago said that the Sears Tower was also being evacuated, possibly as a precaution.

The World Trade Center was the target of a terrorist attack on Feb. 26, 1993, when a bomb exploded in a basement garage of the structure. Six people were killed and more than 1,000 others were injured. Six Arab men were convicted for the bombing. They claimed to be retaliating against U.S. support for the Israeli government.

Terrorists Attack Pentagon,  188 DEAD

Trade Centers

Tuesday, September 11, 2001

NEW YORK - In a horrific sequence of destruction, terrorists hijacked two airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center in a coordinated series of attacks Tuesday morning that brought down the twin 110-story towers. An aircraft also crashed at the Pentagon, raising fears that the seat of government itself was under attack.

''I have a sense it's a horrendous number of lives lost,'' Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said. ''Right now we have to focus on saving as many lives as possible.''

Authorities had been trying to evacuate those who work in the twin towers, but many were thought to have been trapped. About 50,000 people work at the Trade Center. American Airlines said its two aircraft were carrying a total of 156 people.

''This is perhaps the most audacious terrorist attack that's ever taken place in the world,'' said Chris Yates, an aviation expert at Jane's Transport in London. ''It takes a logistics operation from the terror group involved that is second to none. Only a very small handful of terror groups is on that list. ... I would name at the top of the list Osama bin Laden.''

President Bush ordered a full-scale investigation to ''hunt down the folks who committed this act.''

Within the hour, an aircraft crashed on a helicopter landing pad near the Pentagon, and the White House, the Pentagon and the Capitol were evacuated.

One of the planes that crashed into the Trade Center was American Airlines Flight 11, hijacked after takeoff from Boston en route to Los Angeles, the airline said. American Airlines issued a statement saying it had ''lost'' two aircraft - Flight 11, with 92 people aboard, and Flight 77 from Washington to Los Angeles, carrying 64 people.

In Pennsylvania, United Airlines Flight 93, a Boeing 757 en route from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco, crashed about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The fate of those aboard was not immediately known and it was not clear if the crash was related to the disasters elsewhere. In a statement, the airline also said it was deeply concerned about another plane, Flight 175, a Boeing 767 bound from Boston to Los Angeles.

''I just saw the building I work in come down,'' said businessman Gabriel Ioan, shaking in shock outside City Hall, a cloud of smoke and ash from the World Trade Center behind him. ''I just saw the top of Trade Two come down.''

Nearby a crowd mobbed a man on a pay phone, screaming at him to get off the phone so that they could call relatives. Dust and dirt flew everywhere. Ash was 2 to 3 inches deep in places.

People wandered dazed and terrified.

The twin disaster at the World Trade Center happened shortly before 9 a.m. and then right around 9 a.m.

Heavy black smoke billowed into the sky above the gaping holes in the side of the twin towers, one of New York City's most famous landmarks, and debris rained down upon the street, one of the city's busiest work areas. When the second plane hit, a fireball of flame and smoke erupted, leaving a huge hole in the glass and steel tower. John Axisa, who was getting off a PATH train to the World Trade Center, said he saw ''bodies falling out'' of the building. He said he ran outside, and watched people jump out of the first building, and then there was a second explosion, and he felt heat on the back of neck.

WCBS-TV, citing an FBI agent, said five or six people jumped out of the windows. People screamed every time another person leaped.

David Reck was handing out literature for a candidate for public advocate a few blocks away when he saw a jet come in ''very low, and then it made a slight twist and dove into the building.'' People ran down the stairs in panic and fled the building. Thousands of pieces of what appeared to be office paper came drifting over Brooklyn, about three miles away.

Within the hour, an aircraft crashed on a helicopter landing pad near the Pentagon, a car bomb exploded outside the State Department, and the West Wing of the White House was evacuated amid threats of terrorism. And another explosion rocked New York about an hour after the crash. ''Today we've had a national tragedy,'' Bush said in Sarasota, Fla. ''Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country.'' He said he would be returning immediately to Washington.

Terrorist bombers struck the World Trade Center in February 1993, killing six people and injuring more than 1,000 others.

''A second occurrence is just beyond belief,'' said Ira Furber, former National Transportation Safety Board spokesman.

Several subway lines were immediately shut down Tuesday. Trading on Wall Street was suspended.

''We heard a large boom and then we saw all this debris just falling,'' said Harriet Grimm, who was inside a bookstore on the World Trade Center's first floor when the first explosion rocked the building.

''The plane was coming in low and ... it looked like it hit at a slight angle,'' said Sean Murtagh, a CNN vice president, the network reported.

In 1945, an Army Air Corps B-25, a twin-engine bomber, crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building in dense fog.

In Florida, Bush was reading to children in a classroom at 9:05 a.m. when his chief of staff, Andrew Card, whispered into his ear. The president briefly turned somber before he resumed reading. He addressed the tragedy about a half-hour later.

Cockpit drama of doomed planes

Air traffic control would have watched the disaster unfold

By BBC News Online's Sheila Barter and Jenny Matthews

The pilots of the doomed American airliners could have been dead by the time their planes hit their targets, say airline experts.

Ex-pilots believe that even a man with a gun to his head would not fly into a building housing thousands of people - and faced with certain death, would crash the plane elsewhere.

And a terrorist with no previous flying experience would have found it relatively easy to steer a plane through the final moments of its journey and into its target, David Learmount, Operations and Safety Editor of Flight International, told BBC News Online.

"It would be dead easy to aim an aircraft at a target that big," he said.

"They may have shot the pilots, or taken out at least one of them, and taken over the controls.

"As a former pilot, I would just aim for the ground, even if it would mean the death of everyone on board.

"I doubt the pilots were at the controls."

Other pilots also believe the crews were dead.

"I'm sure they would never have got an airline pilot to have done their dirty work. I hope it was mercifully quick," said one contributor to the pilots' internet site, the Professional Pilots' Rumour Network.

Nightmare scenario

Another pilot writes: "The thoughts that one must face when ordered to fly into a building are beyond my comprehension. One hopes/presumes the terrorists flew the last few minutes."

Before the mass hijacking, no-one had anticipated a scenario where extremists would turn not just themselves, but whole planes, into suicide bombs.

Not even Hollywood scriptwriters had dreamt up such a horrific chain of events.

Certainly no-one on the plane could possibly have realised at the start of the drama that the whole flight was doomed whatever anyone did.

As the planes were taken over, one by one, each pilot would almost certainly have expected a "normal" hijacking - where terrorists demand to be flown to a place of their choice, and negotiations begin.

Air traffic control personnel "would have known immediately" of a crisis when the planes veered away from their normal route, according to Chris Yates, aviation security editor of Jane's Defence Weekly.

"They are monitoring the flight paths all the time on screens in front of them," he said.

All conversations with the air traffic controllers will have been automatically recorded.

But the only record of all cockpit conversations - the planes' voice recorders - may not have survived, said Mr Learmount.

The boxes can withstand intense heat for only relatively short periods, and could have been destroyed in the infernos which followed the crashes.

As the drama began, the cockpit doors on all planes would have been locked - standard practice in the US, although not in the UK and Europe.

But the doors are not reinforced, and even without explosives, experts say it would be relatively easy to gain access - either by force or by forcing a cabin crew member to lead the way.

Once the hijackers were in place - and in control - Mr Yates said there would have been little anyone could do. If a plane, for whatever reason, is bound for destruction, controllers would have had to watch helplessly as tragedy unfolded on their screens.

"They will have been frantically trying to contact the planes that have gone off their trajectory," said Mr Yates.

Military option

"But if that doesn't work their only option would be possibly to scramble military jets."

But the military choices would have been limited by the circumstances anyway - with hundreds of passengers on board, and city centres underneath.

BBC diplomatic editor

Brian Hanrahan says virtually nothing could have stopped such an extraordinary attack.

"This is sophisticated, suicidal and there's a degree of ruthlessness which we haven't ever seen in the use of terrorism anywhere in the world before," he said.

"This is quite unprecedented, it's on a different scale and it does require detailed knowledge and organisation, and a degree or sophistication which we would be surprised at, I think."

Investigators must now plough through tonnes of rubble to try finding the so-called "black boxes", along with hundreds of bodies.

The task may prove fruitless.

"We may never know what happened," said Mr Learmount.

Bush Vows U.S. Will Hunt  Down Attackers

Tuesday, September 11, 2001

SARASOTA, Fla. -

President Bush Tuesday condemned what he called an ''apparent terrorist attack'' on the World Trade Center and pledged the U.S.  government will ''hunt down'' those responsible.

''Terrorism against our nation will not stand,'' Bush said as he cut short a visit to Florida to return to Washington after two airplanes crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York.

Air Force One took off for Washington even as the Federal Aviation Authority grounded all other aircraft in response to the national crisis.

Awaiting Bush was a scene of bedlam in Washington, smoke coming from the Pentagon from another apparent attack by a plane shortly after Bush spoke.

In response to the new attack, the White House was evacuated.

Bush called it a ''difficult moment for America.''

''Today we've had a national tragedy. Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country,'' he said, speaking before schoolchildren, teachers and parents at Emma E. Booker Elementary School, where he had planned to talk about education.

''I have spoken to the vice president, to the governor of New York, to the director of the FBI, and have ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and the families and to conduct a full scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act,'' said Bush.

He called for a moment of silence. ''May God bless the victims, their families and America,'' he said, his voice breaking with emotion.

Bush was immediately returning to Washington and was expected to convene a national security meeting on his return to the White House.

White House officials said Bush learned about the incident while in his limousine driving from his hotel to the Sarasota school.

While visiting with schoolchildren at the school, White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card whispered an update into the president's ear. The president's face turned somber at what Card told him.

PENTAGON HIT BY PLANE CRASH

PENTAGON HIT BY HIGHJACKED AIRLINER

Explosion rocks Pentagon, terrifies Washington

Posted: September 11, 2001

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A portion of the Pentagon collapsed Tuesday after it was struck by an aircraft as an apparent coordinated attack spread fear throughout the U.S. capital.

The symbols of U.S. power came under attack as all federal government buildings, including the White House, the Capitol building and the Supreme Court, were evacuated.

The explosions and evacuations came shortly after two planes flew into the World Trade Center tower buildings in New York City.

Fighters jets scrambled to intercept what was reported to be second aircraft headed toward the area around the Pentagon, but the second aircraft never appeared.

The FBI suspects the events in New York and Washington were part of an organized terrorist campaign, a senior government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press.

Among the developments in Washington were reports of:  an explosion at the Pentagon. and a car-bomb explosion outside the State Department. A loud explosion was reported in the vicinity of the Capitol.

In a remarkable scene, security guards brandishing automatic weapons patrolled outside the White House.

The Federal Aviation Administration ordered the entire nationwide air traffic system shut down and diverted to Canada all international flights inbound to New York.

Explosion, smoke

At the Pentagon, a huge plume of smoke rose from the grounds of the building, headquarters for the U.S. military.

"A plane hit the building," David Cook, director of administration and management at the Pentagon, the world's biggest office building.

Eyewitnesses told local television stations that a commercial airliner appeared to have smashed into the side of the building, which is near the Potomac River running through Washington and close to Washington National Airport.

"I saw the tail of a large airliner. ... It plowed right into the Pentagon," said an Associated Press Radio reporter. "There is billowing black smoke."

Gray smoke billowed from the five-sided building. The more than 20,000 civilians and military men and women who work in the building streamed into the surrounding car parks, driven by blue-and-white strobe lights and wailing signs.

It was not immediately clear whether Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was in the building at the time of the crash, which occurred on the southwestern side of the complex.

Lisa Burgess, a reporter for the Army newspaper Stars and Stripes, said she was walking in a corridor near the blast site and was thrown to the ground by the force of the blast. Sirens wailed as the whole building was evacuated.

CNN Military Affairs Correspondent Jamie McIntyre reported that the Pentagon had gone to "threat condition Delta," which is implemented when "a terrorist attack has occurred or intelligence has been received that action against a specific location is likely," McIntyre said.

White House employees evacuated

There were also reports of a fire on the National Mall, a stretch of open, green space between the Capitol and the Washington Monument. That report was not immediately confirmed.

At the White House, employees ran out of the executive mansion as police cleared it. Aides said a "credible threat" against the White House had come in.

At first, the evacuation was orderly but, under orders from the Secret Service, employees were soon ordered to run out of the gates.

Officers, some with automatic rifles, were lined outside the White House.

From Pennsylvania Avenue, CNN Correspondent Kate Snow reported that members of Congress were evacuating the Capitol grounds.

Incidents connected

At the State Department, a senior government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the incident at State appeared connected with the events in New York and at the Pentagon.

"Something has happened at the State Department," the source said. "We don't know what yet."

A voice on the building loud-speaker system said there was a fire in the building, but reports on that were sketchy as sirens blared throughout the building.

One official said there may have only been a fire alarm pulled. People were allowed into the building only to retrieve secure information.

Following the World Trade Center incident, a State Department official told CNN they will be involved in determining who carried out these attacks.

State Department officials sent cables U.S. embassies worldwide, advising representatives at each that they could decide their security posture and determine whether to remain open.

High Alert, Evacuations Nationwide

By David Crary - AP National Writer

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001; 12:10 p.m. EDT

NEW YORK –– Authorities went on alert from coast to coast Tuesday, halting all air traffic, evacuating high-profile buildings and tightening security at strategic facilities following the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Many federal and state office buildings were closed, as well as prominent tourist attractions – Disney World in Florida, Seattle's Space Needle, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and Knott's Berry Farm in southern California. Even the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles was shut down.

Evacuations were ordered at the United Nations building in New York, and the tallest skyscrapers in Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Cleveland and Minneapolis.

In Massachusetts and Maine, most state employees were sent home, and state buildings shut down.

Military bases across the country went on alert. Extra security was added at the Department of Energy's nuclear weapons and research complex in Oak Ridge, Tenn., the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, and at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md., home to the Army's main germ warfare defense laboratory.

The Kennedy Space Center in Florida was under an "enhanced security awareness."

In Louisiana, the state police urged petrochemical and pipeline companies to be on alert. Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, which handles supertankers in the Gulf of Mexico south of New Orleans, suspended operations.

In California, Gov. Gray Davis convened a meeting of the State Emergency Council and requested heightened security in all state buildings.

In Los Angeles, the police went on tactical alert, and mobilized an anti-terrorist division. A tactical alert means officers are held over from the earlier shift to bolster the day shift and police only respond to priority calls.

In Virginia, authorities ordered intensified security at the naval complex in Hampton Roads and imposed a lockdown of offices at the state Capitol.

The horrific attacks prompted Gov. Mike Leavitt of Utah to meet with law enforcement officials to reviewing security planning for the 2002 Winter Olympics.

"It's a reminder the entire world is vulnerable to lunacy," Leavitt said. He said he was more determined than ever to have "the world's most sophisticated security" for the Olympics.

Under orders from the Federal Aviation Administration, airports nationwide halted all outbound flights, while keeping their runways open for incoming plans.

"We're like everyone else, in shock," said Carol Windham, spokesman at Birmingham International Airport in Alabama.

New York City and Washington turned into war zones

Tue Sep 11 2001 11:59:33 ET

Millions of Americans watched in horror Tuesday as television networks broadcast the first images of smoke and fire billowing from the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center.

What was apparently a horrific terrorist attack quickly got worse. Within hours, the twin towers had collapsed into clouds of ash and debris, the fate of the estimated 40,000 people who work there uncertain. Shocked tourists, office workers, police and rescue personnel staggered in panic through the streets of lower Manhattan, their clothes torn and coated with dust, their cries mingling with the urgent wail of sirens.

The television images looked reminiscent of war-torn Kosovo or terror-racked Jerusalem. It wasn't supposed to happen here, even though everybody knew that it could.

The panic spread quickly to the nation's capital, where the Pentagon was rocked by an explosion that ripped away a 60-foot section of the building's facade. A third plane had been purposely crashed into a symbol of American power.

``It was a huge orange and red fireball that erupted in seconds from the building,'' said a Deutsche Presse-Agentur reporter who witnessed the Pentagon blast from a nearby highway. ``My car shook with the vibration.''

Almost immediately, the highway was clogged with ambulances and police vehicles rushing to the scene. It was evident to all that the United States was at war, the enemy unknown and unseen.

Federal buildings across Washington were quickly evacuated as workers spilled onto the streets, frantically calling loved ones on cell phones and ducking whenever a plane or helicopter flew overhead. Members of Congress were evacuated to a secure location.

The city's roadways and highways were clogged with late-morning commuters coming to work and others trying to get home.

In Florida, President George W. Bush cancelled a scheduled speech on education and rushed back to Washington. Speaking before the third plane crashed into the Pentagon, Bush called the attacks ``a national tragedy''.

He ordered ``a full-scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act.''

``Terrorism against our nation will not stand,'' Bush said. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ordered all U.S. airports closed, the first time it had ever taken such a measure. International flights destined for U.S. airports were diverted to Canada.

It was too late to help United Air Lines Flight 93 from Newark to San Francisco, which crashed southeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Another United flight, from Boston to Los Angeles, was unaccounted for, the airline said. American Airlines also reported the apparent hijacking of two passenger planes.

Terror attacks on U.S. soil were not unheard of. In February 1993, a bomb inside a rental truck exploded in the basement of the World Trade Center, killing six. That bomb was tied to Egyptian cleric Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman.

In April 1995, another truck bomb demolished a federal building in Oklahoma City. That attack, committed by a former U.S. Army soldier named Timothy McVeigh, ranked as the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, leaving 168 dead - until Tuesday.

Bush: U.S. Will Find Attackers

By Sonya Ross

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001; 1:15 p.m. EDT

BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. –– As chaos unhinged New York and Washington, President Bush commanded the full force of the United States government to "hunt down and to find" the terrorists responsible.

"Terrorism against our nation will not stand," he declared Tuesday.

In Florida for a pair of education speeches, the president scrapped his schedule and said, at the first reports of attacks on New York's World Trade Center, that he was hastening back to Washington.

But, with the White House evacuated under threat of attack and his wife hunkered down in an unidentified secure location, the president and Air Force One were rerouted – under escort by military fighter jets – to this Louisiana air base.

In a conference room dotted by portraits of decorated Air Force officers, the commander in chief announced that the U.S. military was on "high-alert status."

"Freedom itself was attacked this morning and I assure you freedom will be defended. Make no mistake. The United States will hunt down and pursue those responsible for these cowardly actions," Bush said.

First lady Laura Bush spoke with her husband by a secure military phone line before he took off from Sarasota, Fla.

Mrs. Bush and a handful of aides were whisked by motorcade from Capitol Hill, where she was to have testified to a Senate committee on education, to a hide-out away from the White House. There, the sequestered group huddled around a single TV in their hide-out and channel-surfed for the latest news, according to one person in the group.

Mrs. Bush also checked with her twin daughters at college to make sure they were safe.

Subj: WTC Towers' Collapse Due to Explosives on Lower Levels, NOT Jet Crashes

Date: 9/11/2001 2:48:50 PM Pacific Daylight Time

From: top_viewer@yahoo.com (TOP_VIEW)

9.11.01

Further proof has surfaced that there is far more to military assault which led to the destruction of the World Trade Center towers in New York City than we are being led to believe.

Analysis of film and video footage of the collapse of the two World Trade Center towers subsequent to the buildings being struck by hijacked jetliners, along with eyewitness accounts, lead to the inescapable and provable conclusion that the collapse of the towers was NOT caused by the jet crashes. Massive explosions at lower levels of the towers that took place well AFTER the jets crashed into the upper levels of the towers were POSITIVELY responsible for the total collapse of the two buildings. These explosions has NOTHING to do with the plane crashes.

This aspect of the hideous disaster shows clearly the tremendously extensive coordination, organization and planning which went into the military attacks today in New York City and Washington D.C., providing even more proof that what occurred today was an INSIDE JOB in every way imaginable.

WAY inside, and all the way to the very top. Right to the Oval Office, and the global power elite of the Bush International Crime Family.

Arafat Horrified by Attacks

By Mohammed Daraghmeh

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001; 11:49 a.m. EDT

NABLUS, West Bank –– Thousands of Palestinians celebrated Tuesday's terror attacks in the United States, chanting "God is Great" and distributing candy to passers-by, even as their leader, Yasser Arafat, said he was horrified.

NOTE: Which version is true? Which one is disinformation????

http://www.rense.com/general13/camera.htm

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/RMNEWS_DAILY_EMAILS/message/18395

The U.S. government has become increasingly unpopular in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the past year of Israeli-Palestinian fighting, with many Palestinians accusing Washington of siding with Israel.

In the West Bank town of Nablus, about 3,000 people poured into the street shortly after the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and government targets in Washington.

Demonstrators distributed candy in a traditional gesture of celebration. Several Palestinian gunmen shot in the air, while other marchers carried Palestinian flags. Nawal Abdel Fatah, 48, wearing a long, black dress, threw sweets in the air, saying she was happy because "America is the head of the snake, America always stands by Israel in its war against us."

Her daughter Maysoon, 22, said she hoped the next attack would be launched against Tel Aviv.

In traditionally Arab east Jerusalem, there was a smaller gathering of about two dozen people, many of them young children led in chants by adults. Some drivers passing the scene honked their horns and flashed victory signs from their windows.

Arafat and his top advisers huddled at his seaside office in Gaza City, watching the events unfold on television. Arafat later emerged to speak to reporters.

"We are completely shocked. It's unbelievable," he said. "We completely condemn this very dangerous attack, and I convey my condolences to the American people, to the American president and to the American administration, not only in my name but on behalf of the Palestinian people."

In the West Bank, meanwhile, the leader the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine denied his group was involved in the attacks.

Qais Abdel Rahim was reacting to reports that two Arab satellite stations in the Gulf had received anonymous claims of responsibility on behalf of the DFLP, a radical PLO faction. Abdel Rahim said his group condemned the attacks.

Palestinians in Lebanon fire with joy at anti-US attacks

AIN AL-HELWEH, Lebanon, Sept 11 (AFP) -

Dozens of Palestinian refugees fired into the air with joy Tuesday at news of apparent anti-US terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, AFP correspondents witnessed.

Guerrillas in military fatigues from various factions fired assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades into the air in the Ain al-Helweh refugee camp at the outskirts of the southern port city of Sidon, one correspondent said.

Camp residents, some still in pyjamas, interrupted afternoon rests to rush down to the streets and fire assault rifles into the air, they said.

At the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, Palestinian fighters also went out to the streets as soon as they heard the news from their television sets to fire into the air with joy, an AFP correspondent said.

Taliban diplomat condemns attacks

September 11, 2001 Posted: 2:04 PM EDT (1804 GMT)

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Afghanistan's Taliban ambassador to Pakistan has condemned the string of astonishing terrorist attacks on the United States.

"We want to tell the American children that Afghanistan feels your pain. We hope the courts find justice," ambassador Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef said in a statement in Pakistan after America was hit by a series of attacks that have been called the worst since Pearl Harbor.

U.S. President George W. Bush has said they were "terrorist attacks" and American officials say their "working assumption" is that the attacks in New York and Washington are acts of "overseas terrorism."

They have added they cannot rule out additional attacks.

Officials say they had no intelligence beforehand that a massive terrorist plot was under way.

There have been a number of denials of responsibility by Palestinian groups and by the Al Quaida group headed by fugitive Saudi accused terrorist Osama bin Laden.

U.S. officials say they have no credible claim of responsibility.

Angered U.S.

The Taliban has in the past angered the U.S. for giving sanctuary to wanted Saudi dissident bin laden, described by Washington as "the world's most wanted terrorist."

Apart from the embassy bombings, U.S. officials also link bin Laden to last year's bombing of a U.S. navy ship in Yemen and with foiled plots in the United States and Jordan at the turn of the millennium.

The Taliban sprang from religious schools in Pakistan near the Afghan border and, with almost no military experience, swept from obscurity to their 1996 capture of the capital in only two years.

Beyond Pakistan, the Taliban have few friends.

Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates are the only other countries to recognize the Taliban as the legal government, but they have not joined Pakistan in maintaining embassies in Kabul.

World Watches U.S. Attacks

By Beth Gardiner

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001; 11:39 a.m. EDT

LONDON –– Astonishing terrorist strikes in the United States quickly reached a global audience Tuesday, with many around the world watching live coverage as both World Trade Center towers collapsed.

Audiences were transfixed by the awful images from New York and Washington.

Key indexes sank on world stock markets and some European airlines canceled flights to the United States and recalled planes already in the air.

Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his condolences to the American people over the terrorist attacks, calling them "terrible tragedies," the Kremlin press service said.

"This mass terrorism is the new evil in our world today," said Prime Minister Tony Blair, who canceled a speech at a trade union conference. "It is perpetrated by fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life, and we the democracies of this world are going to have to come together and fight it together."

President Jacques Chirac of France, in a nationally televised statement, called the attacks in the United States "monstrous" and expressed his solidarity with the American people.

"France has just learned of these monstrous attacks, there is no other word for it, that have hit America," Chirac said from Rennes, in the western region of Brittany.

Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and his top aides followed the events at his seaside office in Gaza City, gathered around a TV set.

"I send my condolences to the president, the government and the people for this terrible incident," said Arafat said. "We are completely shocked. It's unbelievable."

In Berlin, Foreign Ministry officials huddled in a crisis meeting.

Virtually all German TV channels switched to live coverage. "This is pure mass murder," one commentator said.

"My government condemns these terrorist attacks to the utmost," said German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder.

"Italy is at the side of the United States," Italian President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi told Bush in a telegram. "The international community must respond together to this abhorrent act."

Czech president Vaclav Havel said in a statement that he was shocked by the attacks and was closely watching news from the United States.

Airlines including British Airways, Scandinavia's SAS and Belgium's Sabena canceled flights across the Atlantic and recalled planes that were already in the air.

In Puerto Rico, people scrambled for news of relatives and friends in New York, where an estimated 2 million Puerto Ricans live.

Group, making the sign of the cross as he watched the second tower explode on TV.

In Thailand, Suranand Vejjajiva, a spokesman for the office of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said they were watching the news in disbelief.

A spokesman for Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said: "The president has been monitoring the events since an hour ago and she condemns what is obviously the worst terrorist attack on a leader of civilized society."

Broadcasters around the world broke into programming to show images of the disaster.

"It's incredible. I thought I was watching a Hollywood movie," said Hong Kong school teacher Doris Tang.

London's Evening Standard, already out of date when it hit the streets, carried a front-page photo of the burning World Trade Center and the headline "Planes Hit Skyscraper."

Russia goes into high alert, Putin supports tough response

MOSCOW, Sept 11 (AFP) -

Russia put troops on alert Tuesday after a spate of unprecedented attacks rocked Washington and New York as President Vladimir Putin told his US counterpart he supported a tough response to the strikes.

"The series of barbaric acts directed against innocent people fills us with indignation and revolt," said Putin in a telegram to US President George W. Bush.

"Such inhuman acts must not go unpunished," he said, according to the Interfax news agency.

Putin later telephoned US national security advisor Condoleezza Rice to ask her to convey his condolences to Bush.

Two planes crashed into the World Trade Center in New York, destroying it entirely, and another ploughed into the Pentagon in Washington, in the worst wave of terrorism to hit the United States.

Putin convened an emergency meeting with his "power ministries," including foreign, interior and defence ministers and head of the domestic intelligence agency to give them special instructions, the RIA-Novosti news agency said.

The country's air force meanwhile announced a series of emergency anti-terrorist measures to protect Russian air space.

"The Russian anti-aircraft defenses are constantly on a state of war readiness. In connection with the events in the United States, a series of anti-terrorist measures are being put into action," the air force said, as quoted by Interfax.

Interior ministry forces were placed on a state of alert and security reinforced around key sites across the country while Russia halted all plane departures to the United States.

Putin later said in a televised address that the world should unite to combat the threat of terrorism, "the plague of the 21st century,"

These strikes are "an unprecedented aggression by international terrorism" which "go beyond the borders of the United States," the Russian president said.

"This is a challenge to the whole of humanity," he added, saying the unprecedented terrorist acts underlined "the relevance of the Russian proposal to unite efforts to fight terrorism."

Russia is waging a military crackdown in the separatist republic of Chechnya, which it describes as an "anti-terrorist" operation.

Former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev said the attacks were a catastrophe for mankind.

They represent "not only a national tragedy (for the United States), but a tragedy for the whole of mankind," he said in a message of condolence to the US administration, as quoted by Interfax.

"In my opinion, countries and nations must unite against this folly, and do everything to stop the escalation of terror," Gorbachev added.

The US embassy in Moscow meanwhile sent Americans in Russia Tuesday an e-mail advising them to exercise caution.

And at least three money exchanges offices in the Russian capital refused to accept dollars. Cashiers said they had been given instructions not to accept the US currency, universally used as a safe haven by Russians.

Blair condemns terrorist 'evil'

Blair offered sympathy to Americans

UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has spoken of his "shock and outrage" at the terrorist attacks in the US.

Britain has also offered the United States "whatever help" necessary to track down the perpetrators.

As evacuations were carried out across the City of London - including the stock exchange where the FTSE 100 shares index plunged nearly 6% - states of alert were raised at UK government and state buildings in Britain and abroad.

An emergency number for Britons worried about friends and relatives has also been issued: 020 7008 0000.

The Queen, sending a message of sympathy to President Bush, expressed her "growing disbelief and total shock".

Travel problems

There were widespread travel problems as American airspace was effectively closed, forcing widespread cancellations and some trans-Atlantic flights to turn back to the UK.

Mr Blair cancelled his planned speech to the TUC conference and instead made a sombre statement condemning the "terrible, shocking" events.

The prime minister headed back to London to chair a meeting of the Cabinet's emergency "Cobra" committee.

Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, Home Secretary David Blunkett and Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon were also at the security discussions in Downing Street which ended shortly before 1800.

His voice cracking with emotion, a clearly shocked Mr Blair had earlier told TUC delegates: "I'm afraid we can only imagine the terror and the carnage there, and the many, many innocent people that will have lost their lives.

"I know that you would want to join me in sending the deepest condolences to President Bush and to the American people on behalf of the British people at these terrible events."

He went on: "This mass terrorism is the new evil in our world today.

"It is perpetuated by fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life and we, the democracies of this world, are going to have to come together to fight it together and eradicate this evil completely from our world."

'Acts of evil'

He went on to tell delegates he hoped they would understand he would not be delivering his planned speech and would be returning to London immediately.

Speaking at the Foreign Office on Tuesday afternoon Mr Straw said the scenes from America were "acts of evil and horror beyond the imagination of any of us".

He said he had passed condolences onto Colin Powell, the US Secretary of State.

"I have also told the US government that we stand ready to give whatever help we can to assist in tracking down the perpetrators behind this evil and ensuring that they are brought to justice."

British citizens are being advised to take great care if they are living abroad in sensitive areas, to stay in their compounds, to avoid obvious areas of potential risk and to have great care for their safety.

'Sickening outrages'

Outgoing Conservative leader William Hague, comparing the attacks to the Second World War strike on Pearl Harbor, said: "Whoever has committed these atrocities has committed a monstrous act of war against the civilised world.

"Britain must, and I am sure will, stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the United States of America and peaceful nations across the world in deploying every possible resource to bring to justice the people responsible, and make sure terrorism never prevails."

He announced that in the contest to find his successor as Tory leader the counting of votes and result, due on Wednesday, would be postponed 24 hours as a mark of respect.

Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy said: "We offer our profound sympathies to the US public and to the families of the countless numbers that must have been killed and injured in this blatant set of attacks.

"The international democratic community must come together as never before to see down the forces of sheer evil that perpetrate such crimes."

Who might have done it?

Some in the Middle East have welcomed the attacks

Within minutes of the horrific chain of events unfolding at the World Trade Center, information began emerging suggesting it was not a terrible accident but a terrorist attack.

It did not take long for suspicions to begin falling on the US's most wanted terrorism suspect: Saudi dissident Osama Bin Laden.

"There is reason to believe people with links to him may have been responsible for this," an unnamed US official told the Reuters news agency in Washington.

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak also said his guess was that "a Bin Laden organisation" was responsible.

Meanwhile in London the editor of the London Arab daily newspaper Al-Quds, Abdul Bari Atwan, said Mr Bin Laden had warned three weeks ago of "a big attack" against the US.

"Maybe this is the outcome of it," he said.

However Afghanistan's ruling Taleban - on whose territory Mr Bin Laden lives - rejected the idea that he could have been involved.

"We are not supporting terrorism. Osama does not have the capability. We condemn this," said Taleban spokesman Abdul Hai Mutmaen.

In the immediate aftermath of the tragic events there were few other leads.

In remarks from Gaza City reported by the French news agency AFP a senior official with the radical Islamic Jihad movement said the attacks were a consequence of United States policy in the Middle East.

The first group to claim responsibility for the attack was the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

However, the claim was subsequently denied by a senior official from the group.

Mr Atwan said false claims of responsibility for terrorist attacks were a frequent occurrence, and more could be expected.

This is not the first time the World Trade Center has been the target of a terrorist attack.

In February 1993, a bomb went off in the basement car park, killing six people and injuring hundreds of others.

Blind Muslim cleric Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman was jailed for in 1995 for plotting the attack on the centre and on the United Nations, also in New York.

But the man blamed for ultimately being behind that campaign was none other than Mr Bin Laden.

His followers were also blamed for lethal bomb attacks on US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were blown up in 1998, and he himself has been indicted in the US on charges of complicity in the attacks.

In October 2000, an attack on the USS Cole warship in Yemen was also attributed to Bin Laden supporters. No link has been found, but the dissident has been quoted as praising the attack.

His organisation openly seeks "to kill Americans and the allies, both civil and military," and declares that this is the responsibility of every Muslim.

However, Americans have frequently been hit by foreign terrorism from other sources.

Gadaffi

When Pan-Am flight 103 was blown up over Lockerbie, in the UK, the trail led back to Colonel Gadaffi's Libya.

In October 1983 the US Marine barracks in Beirut was hit by a suicide bomber in a car, killing more than 240 US servicemen.

A Lebanese Shia was held responsible.

Investigators may also look closer to home.

When the Oklahoma City bomb went off, Mr Bin Laden was everyone's prime suspect.

But it became clear that attack was the work not of a Middle Eastern extremist, but a disaffected young American man, Timothy McVeigh.

He was one of hundreds of Americans who see the federal government as an enemy of individual freedom, and have vowed to fight against it.

Professor Paul Rogers, of Bradford University's Peace Department, warned against assuming Middle East extremists were behind the tragedy.

He said: "We've been here before. With Oklahoma, everybody assumed it was Middle East, then it turned out to be home-grown Timothy McVeigh.

Whoever is responsible for the latest attack, they clearly knew that they were attacking one of the highest profile buildings in the world.

President George W Bush said there would be "a full-scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this attack".

He added: "Terrorism against this nation will not stand."

As I write this from an office in LA, most of downtown LA has been shut down. Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, City Hall, evacuated and closed. LAX closed. Short of martial law, everything is in place.

Of course, Bush had full knowledge of what was about to take place, and so did most of his cabinent. For any competent FBI anti terrorist specialist to say "why, we had no idea they'd ever resort to such a sophisticated preplanned attack" is full of BS.

Note how he and other top players are conveniently located somewhere else when the tragedy occurs. What will tell even more is once the rubble is sifted through and the bodies ID'd, is who - as in OKC - was NOT present when this happened...

The war within the intel community got a kick in the ass today. Fellow patriot spooks, we cannot rest and we cannot let this divert us from our mission of exposing the faction within our government that has been corrupted and has fed our constitution to the dogs.

FYI this was prefaced here in LA yesterday by a 4 point something earthquake, and odd weather afterwards. Also yesterday, military choppers over the 405 freeway and a blimp, monitoring what was a "traffic jam" on the 405 near Torrance. Read: control situation, and not at all what it appears to be...

Too many of us are getting too close to truths the NWO wants kept shushed up. This is Psyops in it's most terrible form. Do not lose faith, do not lose sight of the goal and do not give up the fight.

Our military/spook sources predicted this was coming last month.

Passengers face US flight chaos

All US airports have been closed

Passengers flying out of the UK to the United States are facing severe disruption to their journeys following the closure of all US airports.

Many US-bound flights had already left the UK when American officials decided to shut its airports after two planes crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City.

The collisions were followed by another attack, when a plane crash into the Pentagon in Washington.

London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports and Manchester Airport are not expected to operate any flights to or from the US and Canada on Wednesday.

Passengers to North America are urged to contact their airline or travel agent for updated information.

Flights to Europe and other destinations are expected to operate normally on Wednesday, but airports are warning passengers to expect "substantial" delays.

Turned back

Passengers on flights which were turned around on their way to America said they were told nothing of the events in the US.

Harriet Lyons, 27, who was flying to Florida with her parents, said: "We were four-and-a-half hours into our flight and we were told we were turning back because America had shut down.

"There wasn't any panic because we had no idea what was happening.

"Nobody knew anything. We assumed there was an air traffic control strike or something."

As well as disruption to North American-bound flights, other  services were hit by security measures announced by Tony Blair on Tuesday evening.

Private flights have been stopped, except where specifically authorised, and flight paths into London have been changed so there will be no civil flights over central London.

Contact numbers

British Airways (BA) confirmed that none of its aircraft was involved in the crashes in the US.  

A BA spokesman said British Airways flights en route to the USA were diverted to their nearest airport while others returned to the UK.

BA has released a telephone number for passengers who require further information.

They should contact the airline on 0845 7799977.

American Airlines passengers should contact 08457 789789 for more information.

Another major UK-US carrier, Virgin Atlantic, said it had suspended all American flights until further notice.

Underground service

A Virgin spokesman added that flights that had already left the UK for America were returning to Britain.

London Underground is running special shuttle services between Heathrow and central London to help travellers left stranded at the airport.

The trains will run throughout the night at 30-minute intervals and stop at Hounslow Central and Acton and terminate at Hammersmith.

Passengers at Gatwick airport are travelling to Brighton where they will be put up in hotels until their flights are given clearance to resume.

Buses will run from Hammersmith into central London throughout the night.

Another shuttle bus will run between Hammersmith and Liverpool Street, stopping at Paddington and Kings Cross, to serve travellers at Stansted Airport.

Bin Laden Warned of 'Unprecedented' Attack

By Karen Matusic

9-11-1

LONDON (Reuters) - Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden warned three weeks ago that he and his followers would carry out an unprecedented attack on U.S. interests for its support of Israel, an Arab journalist with access to him said Tuesday.

Abdel-Bari Atwan, editor of the London-based al-Quds al-Arabi, an Arabic-language weekly news magazine, said Islamic fundamentalists led by bin Laden were ``almost certainly'' behind the attack of the World Trade Center in New York.

``It is most likely the work of Islamic fundamentalists. Osama bin Laden warned three weeks ago that he would attack American interests in an unprecedented attack, a very big one,'' Atwan told Reuters.

``Personally, we received information that he planned very, very big attacks against American interests. We received several warnings like this. We did not take it so seriously, preferring to see what would happen before reporting it.''

Atwan has interviewed bin Laden and maintains close contacts with his followers.

Bin Laden is wanted in the United States for the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed 224 people and injured more than 4,000.

Two planes crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center Tuesday morning as office workers began work, setting them on fire and causing both to collapse, live television coverage showed.

Another plane crashed next to the Pentagon in Washington, a U.S. official said. Eyewitnesses said the building was being evacuated. The White House and State Department were also evacuated.

An anonymous caller told Abu Dhabi television in the Gulf that the radical Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine was responsible for the two New York crashes, but a senior DFLP official in the Palestinian territories denied any involvement.

``I emphasize that the story released on Abu Dhabi TV by an anonymous person is totally incorrect,'' Tayseer Khaled, a senior official of the DFLP politburo in the Palestinian territories, told Reuters.

``The DFLP is against hijacking planes and against endangering the lives of civilians who are not connected with the struggle of this region,'' he said.

President Bush called the crashes an ``apparent terrorist attack,'' and pledged the U.S. government would ``hunt down'' those responsible.

Atwan said anti-American sentiment in the Middle East was at its peak and moderate Arab governments had been ''embarrassed'' by what they saw as Bush's reluctance to lead peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

``The more moderate Arab governments were pleading with the American administration to intervene and to resume its sponsorship to the peace talks and put an end to the Israeli aggression. The Bush administration let them down,'' Atwan said.

He said the United States, if convinced that bin Laden was behind the attacks, would probably retaliate in Afghanistan where bin Laden is thought to be in hiding.

``I will not surprised that the Americans will send their cruise missiles to Afghanistan. There is no other country because bin Laden is in Afghanistan.''

Experts: Terrorists must have had own pilots in scheme that defied planning

http://www.canada.com/national/features/wtc/story.html?id={ED755EC4-4E4D-4651-B3DF-4D0076FCAC71}

Tuesday, September 11, 2001

NEW YORK (AP) _ The terrorists who apparently hijacked four planes and attacked the World Trade Center and Pentagon could only have succeeded by using their own trained pilots in a scheme that defied all scenarios envisioned by national security officials, terrorism experts said.

``They flew the planes themselves,'' Gene Poteat, president of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, said Tuesday.

``No pilot, even with a gun to his head, is going to fly into the World Towers,'' he said.

The hijackers used the airplanes as weapons, Poteat said, adding that they may also have had the ability to disable communications systems used to alert authorities to trouble.

``This has been an enormously long-planned and obviously carefully planned operation,'' Poteat said.

That massive planning effort was far beyond anything conceived by counterterrorism officials, who have focused on preventing individual attacks, said Steven Emerson of the Investigative Project, a research group focused on international terrorism.

``No one thought there was a capability of doing simultaneous attacks so none of the counterterrorism scenarios ever envisioned this,'' Emerson said.

Authorities have examined the chances of individual attacks on high-profile targets such as the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, including an attack on a large building using a commandeered plane, he said.

But most research examining the potential for attacks causing devastating loss of life has focused on chemical or biological means, he said.

WTC-Eyewitness Account

10AM, Wednesday, 12 September 2001

The Horror, The Horror

My entire family is safe. We evacuated our lower-Manhattan residence at about noon yesterday and migrated north on foot to Grand Central Terminal (about three miles) where we took Metro North to the home of my parents in Westchester, from where I write this message.

We live six blocks from the World Trade Center, in view of both Towers, City Hall, and City Hall Park. I happened to be working at home yesterday. My wife went to work at 8:20AM. I left at the same time to vote in NYC's Mayoral Primary. My 9-month old son was at home with our nanny. My 5-year old daughter was attending her second day of Kindergarten at PS-234, three blocks from World Trade Center. Lineup time in the yard was 8:40AM in full view of WTC 1.

When the first plane hit at 8:50, they evacuated the school without incident. I noticed WTC 1 on fire in a high floor upon returning from voting, about 8:55AM. Large crowds of onlookers were gathering along the base of City Hall Park as countless fire engines, police cars, and ambulances screamed past.

I went home, grabbed my camcorder, went out to the street and started filming. I consider myself to be emotionally strong. What I bore witness to, however, was especially upsetting, with indelible images of horror that will not soon leave my mind.

1) I first see WTC 1 on fire at a high floor. Not just flames coming out of some windows, but four or five entire floors on fire with smoke penetrating floors still higher.

Upsetting enough, but then...

2) Among the papers and melted steel fragments fluttering to the ground, I notice that some debris was falling distinctly differently. These weren't parts of the building that were falling. These were people, jumping from the windows, their bodies tumbling in rapid descent from the eightieth floor. I noticed about ten such falls, morbidly capturing three of them on tape.

Upsetting enough, but then...

3) A firey explosion burst forth from a corner of WTC 2 about two thirds of the way up, perhaps the 60th floor. The fireball created an intense radiative impulse of heat from which we all had to turn our heads. From my vantage point, I could not see the plane that caused it, which hit 180 degrees on the other side of the building. Nor did I know at the time that a plane caused it. I first thought it was a bomb, but the explosion was not accompanied by the tell-tale acoustic  Shockwave that rattles windows. This was simply a low frequency rumble.

As it burst from the building's corner, the fireball was so large that it extended all the way across to WTC 1. The fact the building's corner exploded tells me that the ignited jet fuel got focused by the sides of the floor into which the second plane flew, meeting at the corner with increased explosive pressure. The flames were accompanied by countless thousands of sheets of paper that burst forth, fluttering to the ground as though every filing cabinet on multiple floors was emptied.

The fact that the second tower was now on fire made it clear to us all on the street that the first fire was no accident and that the WTC complex was under terrorist attack. Morbidly, I have the explosion on tape and the sounds from the horrified crowd surrounding me.

At this point I stopped filming, and went back inside my apartment.

Upsetting enough, but then...

4) As more and more and more and more and more emergency vehicles descended on the World Trade Center, I hear a second explosion in WTC 2, then a loud, low-frequency rumble that precipitates the unthinkable -- a collapse of all the floors above the point of explosion. First the top surface, containing the helipad, tips sideways in full view. Then the upper floors fall straight down in a demolition-style implosion, taking all lower floors with it, even those below the point of the explosion. A dense, thick dust cloud rises up in its place, which rapidly pours through the warren of streets that cross lower Manhattan.

I close all our windows and blinds. As the dust cloud engulfs my building, an eerie darkness surrounded us -- the kind of darkness you experience before a severe thunderstorm. I look out the window and can see no more than about 12 inches away.

Upsetting enough, but then...

5) Outside my window, after about 15 minutes, visibility grows to about 100-yards, and I notice about an inch white dust everywhere outside my window. That's when I realize that every single rescue vehicle that had parked itself at the base off the World Trade Center must now be buried under 110 collapsed floors of tangled debris, and multiple feet of dust.

This collapse took out the entire first round of rescue efforts including what were surely hundreds of police officers, firefighters, and medics.

As visibility increased and I could now see the blue sky, there was blue sky where WTC 2 used to be.

Upsetting enough, but then...

6) I decide it's time to get my daughter, who was taken by the parents of a friend of hers to a small office building, six blocks farther from the WTC than my apartment. As I dress for survival: boots, flashlight, wet towels, swimming goggles, bicycle helmet, gloves, I hear another explosion followed by a now all-too familiar rumble that signaled the collapse of WTC 1, the first of the two towers to have been hit. I saw the iconic antenna on this building descend straight down in an implosion twinning the first.

This dust cloud was darker, thicker and faster-moving than the first. When this round of dust reached my apartment, fifteen seconds after collapse, the sky turned dark as night, with visibility of no more than about a centimeter. It was getting harder to breathe in the apartment, but we were stable.

At this point I offer no hope of survival for any of the rescue personnel who were on the scene.

Upsetting enough, but then...

7) The cloud settles once again, now leaving a total of about three inches of dust outside my window. Another dark cloud of smoke now occupies the area where two 110-story buildings once stood. This cloud, however, was not the settling kind. It was smoke from ground-level fires. At this time the air in the apartment is getting harder and harder to breathe and it becomes clear that we should evacuate -- especially with the likelihood of underground gas leaks. I load up my largest backpack with survival items, put my son in our most nimble stroller and leave with our nanny, who then walks across the Brooklyn Bridge toward her home.

I go to where my daughter was held, which was upwind from all debris on a quiet street. She is in good spirits, but clearly upset. I have a crayon drawing of hers, sketched while waiting for me to arrive, which shows the Twin Towers with smoke and fire coming from them, as only a 5-year old could draw. "Daddy, why do you think the pilot drove his plane into the World Trade Center?" "Daddy, I wish this was all just a dream" "Daddy, if we can't return home tonight because of all the smoke, will my stuffed animals be okay?"

Upsetting enough, but then...

8) From the calm of an upholstered couch in the office where my daughter was kept, with my son under one arm and my daughter under the other, I realize that, fully loaded, each tower off the WTC holds 10,000 people. From what I witnessed, I have no reason to believe that any of them survived. In fact, I would not be surprised if the death toll reached 25-30,000. Beneath the Towers is an entire universe of six subterraneous levels containing scores of subway platforms, plus a hundred or so shops and restaurants. The Towers simply collapsed into this hole -- a hole large enough to have supplied the landfill for the World Financial Center across the West Side highway from the World Trade Center.

Upsetting enough, but then...

9) I realize that if the death toll is as high as I suspect, this incident is much, much worse than Pearl Harbor, where several thousand people died. It's more spectacularly tragic than the Titanic, the Hindenberg, Oklahoma City, car bombs, and airplane hijackings. The number of deaths in one four-hour period will be nearly half of the American death toll in all of Vietnam.

I reconnected with my wife by 4PM, meeting her just north of Union Square Park, before we hiked another mile north to Grand Central Terminal for our ride to Westchester, above New York City.

I will never be the same after yesterday, in ways that I cannot foresee. I suppose that my generation now joins the ranks of those who lived through unspeakable horrors and survived to tell about it. How naive I was to believe that the world is fundamentally different from that of our ancestors, whose lives were changed by bearing witness to the 20th century's vilest acts of war.

Peace to you all

Subj: Towers Withstood Impact, but Fell to Fire, Report Says

Towers Withstood Impact, but Fell to Fire, Report Says

By JAMES GLANZ and ERIC LIPTON

Fireproofing, sprinkler systems and the water supply for hoses were all disabled in the twin towers on Sept. 11 in the face of a blaze so intense that it drove temperatures as high as 2,000 degrees and generated heat equivalent to the energy output of a nuclear power plant, a federal report on how the towers fell has concluded.

The fire, combined with these failures, brought down the towers even after they had shown surprising and lifesaving resiliency to massive structural damage caused by the impact of two hijacked airliners, the report says.

The report's findings detail for the first time the horrific series of events that led to the collapse of two of the world's tallest buildings. They are contained in a draft of a report commissioned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the American Society of Civil Engineers.

The draft describes a structure that showed both remarkable strength and critical weaknesses. As was obvious to television viewers worldwide, the towers sustained the initial impact of the planes. But the buildings were
able to redistribute loads away from damaged columns so well that they could probably have remained standing indefinitely if not for the fires, an earthquake or a windstorm, the report said. Team members are still debating
the delicate question of whether the tremendous fires could have brought the towers down on their own.

"The ability of the two towers to withstand aircraft impact without immediate collapse was a direct function of their design and construction characteristics, as was the vulnerability of the two towers to collapse as a result of the combined effects of the impacts and ensuing fires," the report concludes.

The report, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, is not due to be released officially until late April or early May. It provides documentary evidence that simultaneously supports and rejects many of the
theories about what happened to the towers on Sept. 11. What is already clear is that the jet fuel played a role somewhat different, though still critical, than some experts had speculated. After the planes slammed into the towers, the fireballs that burst over Lower Manhattan consumed perhaps a third of the 10,000 gallons of fuel on board each plane, for example, but did little structural damage themselves, the report says.

Like a giant well of lighter fluid, though, the remaining fuel burned within minutes, setting ablaze furniture, computers, paper files and the planes' cargo over multiple floors and igniting the catastrophic inferno that
brought the towers down.

Under normal circumstances, fire suppression systems are designed to allow a high-rise blaze to burn itself out before the building collapses. But the report concludes that there were across-the-board failures in the towers'
fire suppression systems, raising disturbing questions about the safety and integrity of other tall buildings in out-of-control fires. But the ultimate significance of those failures is extremely difficult to gauge, the report
says, because of the extraordinary circumstances of the attack.

In fact, besides just setting the fires, the impact of the jets may have jarred loose the light, fluffy fireproofing that had been sprayed on steel columns, and flying debris almost certainly sliced through the vertical pipes that supplied water for the hoses and sprinklers. 

Because of those uncertainties, the report says, building codes and engineering practices should be studied extensively to consider changes, a step the federal government is already planning, with a $16 million two-year
inquiry by the National Institute of Standards and Technology now getting under way. The final version of the FEMA report may recommend specific changes in building codes and standards.

The report is also significant for what it does not include. With the exception of a few contorted steel beams from 5 World Trade Center, a nine-story office building that also burned and had localized collapses because the beams failed where they were bolted together, little evidence collected from the piles of debris contributed in a meaningful way to the report's conclusions.

That absence could intensify criticism of an early decision by the city to recycle steel from the trade center rather than make it immediately available for collection and analysis by the research team. About 60 pieces of trade center steel are being sent to the technology institute for the investigation, so future analysis could provide additional answers.

The draft report also does not contain any discussion of what could become a contentious new issue in attempts to explain why the south tower, though struck after the north tower, fell first. That question involves a program,
started after the 1993 bombing of the towers, to increase the thickness of the fireproofing on the lightweight steel joists that held up the floors.

At the time of the attack, 18 floors on the north tower and 13 floors in the south tower had been upgraded, by increasing the thickness of the fireproofing from three-quarters of an inch to an inch and a half. As it happened, the planes hit floors in the north tower where fireproofing thickness had already been increased, and floors in the south that had not been upgraded - with one exception, the 78th floor.

Team members are carefully debating what role that difference may have played in the length of time the towers stood after impact: 56 minutes, 10 seconds for the south tower and 102 minutes, 5 seconds for the north. But
there are several other possible explanations. The plane that struck the south tower was moving at least 100 miles an hour faster than the other one, heightening the energy upon impact. And it hit 10 floors lower, resulting in far more weight from above bearing down on the damaged area.

Whatever its thickness, much of the fireproofing was probably dislodged by the impact of the planes, the investigators concluded. One official knowledgeable about the fireproofing said the woolly, mineral-based material
could be brushed away with the wipe of a finger.

Stripped of its fireproofing, a steel column heats up much more quickly in a fire. The hotter the steel, the less it is able to support loads, as it eventually becomes as soft as licorice. Investigators believe that the structural steel was also greatly imperiled because the sprinklers and standpipes supplying water for firefighting were almost certainly disabled, their supply pipes cut by debris sent flying in the initial crash.

The sprinklers were installed by about 1990 and tanks were stored as high as the 110th floor of the buildings. Witnesses below the areas of impact, and therefore below the primary fires, described water cascading down the
stairwells where pipes from those tanks ran. The hoses that firefighters carried on their backs up the same stairwells would therefore have been largely useless, since the standpipes used the same supplies.

The report cites the tight clustering of the exit stairways, three per tower, as a factor that may have made it easier to cause damage to all of them with one blow. These exit stairwells also had relatively lightweight gypsum board sheathing, providing little armor. Partly for these reasons, thousands of people above the floors of impact were trapped.

Most of the tenants in the floors below impact, to the credit of the building and the emergency lighting in the stairwells, escaped. More than 400 firefighters, police officers and other rescue personnel and dozens of
tenants who stayed behind during the evacuation were also killed when the buildings finally collapsed. An estimated 2,830 people are considered dead or missing in the collapse.

Against the Manhattan skyline, the gleaming towers looked nearly identical, except for the television tower atop the north tower. But the inquiry found that the forces that toppled them had distinct differences.

Their basic structures before the attacks were extremely similar, even if they were not quite perfect twins. Each tower was supported against the downward force of gravity by a tightly arranged matrix of columns at its
core and another palisade of columns, spaced just 40 inches apart, around its exterior.

The core and perimeter columns were connected by lightweight, weblike floor supports called trusses at each floor. The trusses held up corrugated metal decks on which the concrete floors were poured. The same trusses provided
lateral support for all the vertical columns, preventing them from buckling under the tremendous force of gravity.

Wide plates called spandrels tied the exterior steel columns together, creating a rigid surface that could resist hurricane-force winds.

These structural elements would become fateful as the jets plowed into the north tower at 8:46 a.m. and the south tower at seconds before 9:03 a.m.

The report - assembled with data collected at ground zero, in scrapyards, in laboratories, by analyzing more than 100 hours of videotape and by talking to witnesses - turned up the greatest amount of detail on the south tower
attack.

The United Airlines jet, its wings slightly canted, angled into the south facade of the south tower, slicing through about 30 of the 59 exterior columns on that face. The immediate damage, probably including unseen devastation to the steel core, stretched from the 78th to the 84th floors.

The impact of the plane, which had been traveling as fast as 586 miles an hour, was so great that it gathered office material like a snowplow and apparently forced it toward the northeast corner of the building. Parts of the plane came to rest there and others punctured the far wall, soaring as far as six blocks to the north before hitting the ground near the intersection of Murray and Church Streets.

A fuel-fed fireball emerged from three sides of the tower and consumed roughly one-third of the estimated 10,000 gallons on the plane. Some of the rest flowed down the face of the building and into elevator shafts and
stairwells. What remained burned ferociously, setting acres of office space afire as well as the plane's cargo.

The incredible energy generated by this blaze was estimated to be three to five gigawatts at its peak. A typical nuclear power plant generates about one gigawatt. All of that energy was converted to deadly heat that began
weakening the steel.

But the tower did not fall immediately. Preliminary calculations by the engineering team have revealed that the tight spandrel connections, built to resist the wind, gave the building a remarkable ability to redistribute loads from severed columns to those that remained intact.

This rearrangement was so efficient, the calculations show, that stresses on columns no more than 20 feet from the hole punched in the tower's face were barely higher than what they were before the impact. Like a horse with a bum
leg, the buildings, though wounded, still stood.

But the fires continued to burn. Black smoke poured from shattered windows on floor after floor, fresh oxygen sucked in from the gaping holes caused by the impacts. In the northeast corner of the south tower's 80th floor, where
office furniture had been shoved by the plane, the fire burned so hot that a stream of molten metal began to pour over the side like a flaming waterfall.

The apparent source of this waterfall: molten aluminum from the jet's wings and fuselage, which had also piled up in that corner. Within minutes, portions of the 80th floor began to give way, as evidenced by horizontal lines of dust blowing out the side of the building. Seconds later, near the heavily damaged southeasterly portion of this same floor, close to where the aircraft had entered, exterior columns began to buckle.

Fifty-six minutes and 10 seconds after it was hit, the top of the south tower tilted horribly, to the east and then to the south, and initiated the collapse of the entire tower, floor upon floor.

Unfolding at a slower pace, the disaster at the north tower will require study before it can be explained in such detail. The plane entered the north tower between the 94th and 98th floors, the report says, destroying about 35
columns on its north face and wreaking indeterminate but probably substantial damage to the core.

The building stood for more than an hour and a half. Videos of the north tower's collapse appear to show that its television antenna began to drop a fraction of a second before the rest of the building. The observations
suggest that the building's steel core somehow gave way first, pulling down the rest of the tower with it.

For a few unreal moments, after the north tower had plummeted to the ground, a giant spear-like fragment of the facade remained standing, as if defiantly, still looming above the lesser skyscrapers around it. Then the last shard of
the tower fell, leaving behind only its arched, cathedral-like base and a narrow trail of smoke to trace its path to the ground.

Julia Ward Howe

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord

He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored,

He has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift sword

His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps

They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps

l can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps

His day is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnish`d rows of steel,

"As ye deal with my contemners, So with you my grace shall deal;"

Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel

Since God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat

He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat

Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!

Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

He has sounded form the trumpet that shall never call retreat

He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat

Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!

Our God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

ln the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,

With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:

As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,

While God is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
