An airport in Summerset confirmed that there's a large plane crashed near their airport. It's a Boing 767 plane 80 southeast of Pittsburg.

God help us all... Pearl Harbor was nothing compared to what we are seeing today. I can't imagine what kind of retaliation we will be raining down upon the damn arab terrorists.

I really do appreciate you guys posting the updated info on here, it's great. I can't get on to any of the news sites and I'm stuck at my desk so I can't watch it on the TV like everyone else (tech support never gets a day off)

I also fear what kind of retaliation this could bring, mainly because I'm a male, age 18-25, signed up for the draft. But after seeing s*!t like that, I'd love to go and fight against a country that does that to innocent people.

A very well planned attack more planes may still be in the air- unconfirmed though. Crazy Sad day.

I'm off the board for a few days but had to come here for a quick post. This is not just a couple of planes. It is precise timing. If they just wanted to crash the planes for the most damage, they would have crashed them lower into the towers. Instead they hit them high for most visual effect and then waited a little while for all the TV news to begin coverage.

They knew we would be watching news after the first hit and timed it so we could all see the second tower get hit. Awhile later after ALL of us had time to turn on the news then they completely collapsed one of the towers. That was NOT a secondary explosion from the plane; the timing was too good. This is confirmed by the well-timed second collapse later on. We already also have the Pentagon and possibly other things still happening as I post this. It is not over today yet.

Today we just entered a war, and we are watching another Pearl Harbor occur right now as I am posting this.

God help us all.

My take on the crashes at the Trade Center was that they killed the crew and had their own "pilots" fly into the buildings. There is no way a US pilot would have aimed his craft into the building even at gunpoint.

Today was my day to volunteer at the Arizona Science Center. I was called and informed that the Science Center is closed for the day as well as many other buildings and government offices in Phoenix.

NO car bomb at State

News just came back and corrected their earlier reports- very fluid situation.

Ok... 7 planes crashes so far...
4 on the WTC
1 outside Manhatten
1 outside Pittsburg (Pilot prolly refused and just crashed it)
1 on Pentagon.

There is one plane in the air right now heading for the capital, with 6 F-16's following. That begs the question.... do you shoot it down and spare whatever they are going to crash into?

Remember... these are ALL PASSENGER PLANES... not cargo.

There have been several car bombs outside the pentagon, capital building etc.... I'll try to post more when I know more.

That does bring up a good point. I am 18 and entered the draft only 11 months ago.

The President was as you know here in my town this morning.

Sarasota County EMS and others are locked down now on a 24/7 watch. The President's plane may be on the way back here as I type.

I wouldn't be suprised at all if the arabs or the arabic-type people start getting gunned down in the streets. I see a whole new race war about to begin.

My prayers for the people in the buildings AND the people on board the planes.


Bush, you better start hunting this guy down NOW!! AS for you young guys, get ready, you may be going a little south.

I also get to wondering what will happen to the nation, not just because of the terrorism, but think of businesses who have the big guys located in the trade towers that may have died, as well as all business data, etc. I know we have a few customers near the trade towers and I just pray that when the towers collapsed, they didn't take the other buildings with them.

If they were to start a war, I'd fight for it...

looks like they got one into camp david.

this date is an annaversary of a peace accord that was signed at camp david between arabs and jews. this is significant.

i have to ask you guys and gals.. how are you prepared for this? not to understate the sit but this is serious and i believe that we need to be prepared to protect our families. dont fuel the situation with unecessary hatred or racism. keep your wits. you need to know where you would go in case of an evacuation. you need to know your course of actio nduring the worse case senario. get soem supplies for over a month of rationed living if you dont already. dont panic.

may Yahweh proctect us.

Smoke billowed out of the World Trade Center's north tower after the first plane hit it

wtc6.jpg

Less than 18 minutes later, another plane closed in on the other tower. The plane seemed to swerve to hit the south tower


wtc7.jpg

The second plane caused a massive explosion and fire on the second tower


wtc8.jpg

The south tower collapses in a cloud of debris and smoke. The collapse obscures much of downtown Manhattan.

George Bush was told the news as he spoke to children in a Florida school

All picts and captions taken from BBC News

I can't find picts after the second tower collapsed... all the sites are really slow right now.

The Democratic Front for the Liberation of
Palestine has claimed responsibility for the
attacks on the World Trade Center, according
to the BBC and Abu Dhabi television.
However, DFLP sources have denied any
involvement.



It is unclear who is responsible for today's
apparent terrorist attack on the World Trade
Center in New York, but it is unlikely that
Palestinian groups are involved, said an
expert on international terrorism.

"They have a lot to lose because America
would react very harshly against the
Palestinians, however it is not impossible that
a radical group was involved," said Eli
Carmon, of the Herzliya Interdisciplinary
Center's counter-terrorism department.

Two jets, one of them apparently an American
Airlines 767 hijacked from Boston, crashed
into the Twin Towers shortly before 9 am.
EST.

Carmon noted that the World Trade Center has
been targeted once before in 1993, when a
bombing killed six people and injured more
than 1,000. Carmon said that there have been
threats by unidentified Islamic groups to target
the World Trade Center again if Sheikh Omar
Abdul Rahman, the militant Egyptian cleric,
who is serving a life sentence in the US after
his conviction in a plot to bomb the United
Nations and New York landmarks, was not
released.

He added that it is possible that terrorist
mastermind Osama Bin-Laden is also
involved.

Carmon said that the alleged terrorist attack
amounts to a "declaration of war" on the US,
and that the US will have to "react in an
extremely harsh manner."

Israel, he noted, had already envisioned the
possibility of an air attack, and shot down a
small plane that took off from Lebanon in May
after it flew menacingly into Israeli airspace.
