    TWT: Yes, I think so.

    I think there were other explosions near the base of the World Trade Center.

    More explosions were heard in New York. Unconfirmed locations. It's a mess.

    Is it a coincidence that these attacks are happening on September 11 (S11)?

    When the planes crashed into the WTC towers, the heat and flames from the crash caused the steel to just melt and implode upon itself.

    There were terrorist reports received at the White House. The West wing was evacuated immediately.

    There were S11 protests last year in Melbourne against the World Trade Organisation meeting in Melbourne, Australia. No explosions, of course.

    What the the hell is going on. Personally -- right now -- I am very angry, even though I'm not affected by any of this. It makes me want to blow the crap out of whoever is responsible.

    Both of the WTC building have collapsed. !!!!!! COLLAPSED. I'm speechless. 110 stories each.

    Bush stated an apparent terrorist attack. Heads to DC. All news sites down with demand.

    State Dept & Whitehouse evacuated. Pretty much all of DC evacuated. Capitol Hill with fire. Pentagon with an apparent plane crash. DCMall fire reports.



    ALL U.S. PLANES GROUNDED. Planes in air escorted and diverted by air force. A few planes have been diverted from DC almost by force. One plane reported but not confirmed to have been shot down 30mi outside of US airspace. Didn't respond to communications. Rerouting many commercial flights to Canada.

    Stock exchange closed.


    Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine has supposedly claimed responsibility for something. Still unconfirmed.

    That claim was made anonymously and then later refuted.

    Lots of times terrorists claim things they didn't do. Which may have been what happened. They thought they could claim this as a show of force.. then changed their mind because they didn't want to get destroyed.

    And it shows how any country's defenses against real terrorism are weak. This is scary.

    There's a chilling story about the fellow who bombed the WTC in 1993 ..once he was captured, the FBI said to him "look, the trade towers are still standing" and he said "if I had more money, they wouldn't be."

    On this day in history:


    1941 - In Arlington, VA, the groundbreaking ceremony for the Pentagon took place.

    1990 - U.S. President Bush vowed "Saddam Hussein will fail" while addressing Congress on the Persian Gulf crisis.

    Yes, until there's no doubt about the identity of the terrorist group, it can be any group. And the responsible group can have a great interest in casting the responsibility of the attacks on another one.
