Breaking,Terrorist attact on world trade center NY : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

On CNN,2 planes have rammed the trade center in NYC.

-- Jax (, September 11, 2001


Boston - American Airlines flight No. 11 to LAX was hijacked and was one of the planes.

per ABC TV

-- PHO (, September 11, 2001.

Latest news off ABC (approx 10 AM) is that three commercial planes were hijacked, two hit the two towers of the World Trade Center in NYC; the other hit the Pentagon in Wash D.C.

The FAA has grounded *all* planes over the continental U.S.

The President took off from Florida on AF1 a few minutes ago, headed toward D.C.

An early report is that a media outlet in Abu Dubai was told a Palestinian group is taking responsibility.

As always, all information including especially the claims of responsibility needs to be seen as preliminary.

Folks, this sends a signal more strongly than the targets themselves and even more strongly than the hundreds or thousands of people who were no doubt killed.

The message is: airport security can be beaten. This means air travel and tourism are DEAD.

Think about it.

The economic hit is the push that sends the U.S. economy and hence the world in Great Depression 2.

Mark my words, remember this 10 years from now.

Health to all.

A young friend just called from Pittsburgh: schools & colleges have been closed and students (including herself) sent home owing to another hijacked plane, said to be bound for DC, being shot down in Somerset County by the military.

L.C., heard that rumor about it being shot down, noticed how quickly the PA story fizzled along with the Chicago rumor. Do you know anymore on the Chicago thing?
