It was initally thought that a radical Palestinean liberation group has claimed responsibility thanks to an anonymous call, but the group have denied it. At this point, I don't think anyone has officialy claimed responsibility. Palistnean president Yasser Arafat has condemned the attack.

There was a plane crash outside of Pittsburg; it is unconfirmed if this is related to the other crashes.

Apparently this is the anniversary of the Camp David Peace Treaty.

There is an unconfirmed report that the plane in Pennsylvania was shot down by the military after the crew radioed that an arab had stabbed a stewardess and tried to enter the cockpit.

It is believed, but not confirmed that the Islamic terroist group lead by Ossama bin Laden, the man responsible for the 1998 US Embassy Bombing in east Africa, may be behind it. Some weeks earlier, bin Laden made a statement that he would attack the US in an unprecidented attack.

Again, no one has yet claimed responsibility.

Ugh, I can't even load the first page here at school. I know almost nothing about this, our 2nd hour teacher wouldn't even turn it on. Guess I should check a news site or something, maybe. Recomended news sites?

I heard about this, but I didn't know it was that major. I was picturing damage to the trade center, not total destruction.

Good lord. This is sick.

The facts in brief:

1) Two small jet planes commandeered by terrorists with passengers inside flew into the World Trade Center buildings.

2) The South tower collapsed, followed shortly after by the other.

3) The Pentagon was also attacked.

4) Air Force bases are on top alert.

5) Many rumours are now propagating.

The area near the World Trade Center is being further evacuated due to a bomb threat in a nearby school.

No confirmation on Camp David explosion.

I can't believe they let Bush onto Air Force One, that can become a target in no time.

That rumour is particularly unbelievable.

But if they could do nothing else to force it down, that would have to be the last resort if it was heading somewhere important.

The US financial center has been hit during a slow down. That' gonna make things WAY WAY worse financially in the US.

Seat of government also attacked

This is a very well planned and calculated attack.

This way he scared Ossama bin Laden (?) and he acted by sending some friends...

Newt Gingrich is saying that this is a 21st Century Pearl Harbor attack.


There saying that 55,000 soldiers died in Vietnam, and that 50,000 people worked at the towers almost equaling the war if they didn't make it out of the towers

Not too likely. Maybe from the ground, but not from hijacking like the other planes. Air Force One isn't exactly American Airlines.

The whole country will go into martial law if this crap goes on much longer.

Gingrich is a moron.

Pearl Harbour wasn't unprecedented. The Japanese declared war late the night before, but the US was too lazy to translate the message.

Not related. Aaliya's plane was overloaded and unballanced when it took to air.

The world financial markets are already starting to show symptoms of this attack.

It's almost 9:00 on thw west coast. I hope nothing happens.

It's completely different from Pearl Harbor.

a - We don't know who did it this time.
b - No sign they would've his time.
c - etc.

But it does have a similar effect, probably.


Would it be in bad taste to mention this is my 1200th post?

According to my sources:

South Manhattan is being evacuated. NYC is under martial law for the evac.

Two planes are confirmed to be shot down by us pilots.

Bin Laden is the US Gov's no1 suspect, actions against him are being planned.

Sources: NBC employee, people living in NYS.

confirmed: all tv and radio in the uk have been changed to reports on this attack

the thing that strikes me about terrorism is how it has the opposite of the desired effect. if you want to stop western capitalism and blow up the center of NY, then it will not make people think 'oh this capitalism thing is bad, lets stop' it will make people more resolute in their efforts. this was the source of the 'blitz spirit' during ww2 in large cities in the uk, such as sheffield, where i come from.

stupid f--ks.

nothing's happened for a while, but there are at least 2 planes still hijacked up in the air. I will not sleep until I find out what happens.
