    I remember that day thinking a truck bomb would never do it.



    Little did I realize.

    :(

    Thanks to teachers and a liberal education system most of these kids don't even know about the history and perpetrators of all of the NYC attacks.

    Some planes did something some bombs did something.

    Google "The Phoenix Memo".

    The entire 9/11 thing was basically spelled out by an FBI agent in Phoenix 2 months before it happened but the Hacks in D.C. were to busy shining their wing tips to bother with it. Thats why they paid off the familys 8 b $.

    Hard to believe how many seemingly rational people think George Bush ordered the hit on the towers and black ops carried it out.
    Kind of explains why there are so many Bernie supporters.

    I remember that day. They originally thought it was a transformer explosion. Crazy stuff.

    Of course a truck bomb would do it; the right charge, in the right place , and it would have been plenty.

    McVeigh did it 2 years later in OKC. Smaller building, but same principle.

    You never know what the day holds when you put on the uniform (whether fire, LEO, or EMS). Thank you @seanmac45.

    Appreciate you being there and doing your job. more important is the thanks from those who were actually there and benefitted from the first responders like yourself.

    Certainly debatable. A bigger bomb might have done it if they could get the truck in the garage. I understood their Ryder was stuffed to the gunnels; a bigger one may not have fit.

    I actually think they went after the wrong target. With the unique construction of the Towers, the columns they went after didn't offer much support and the explosion was attenuated by the multi level parking garage.

    An error they corrected with the airplanes taking out the major structural support of the many wall columns around the circumference of the buildings.

    I don't think so.




    "In May 1998, George J. Tenet, then director of central intelligence, scrapped a heavily rehearsed raid to kidnap Osama bin Laden from his compound in Kandahar, Afghanistan, according to the report by the Sept. 11 commission.

    Under the plan, developed from satellite photographs and on-the-ground intelligence, Afghan operatives would execute a daring kidnapping and later hand over Mr. bin Laden, the leader of the Al Qaeda terrorist network, to the Central Intelligence Agency.

    ''No capture plan before 9/11 ever again attained the same level of detail and preparation,'' the report said. ''Working-level C.I.A. officers were disappointed.''

    https://www.nytimes.com/2004/07/26/...idnapping-bin-laden-was-rehearsed-98-but.html "


    "In late 1998 or early 1999, bin Laden summoned Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to Kandahar and gave approval for Mohammed to go forward with the plot.[14]

    A series of meetings occurred in spring of 1999, involving Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Osama bin Laden, and his deputy Mohammed Atef.[14] Bin Laden recommended four individuals for the plot, including Nawaf al-Hazmi, Khalid al-Mihdhar, Walid Muhammad Salih Bin 'Attash (Khallad), and Abu Bara al-Taizi. Al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar were both Saudi citizens, thus making it simple for them to obtain U.S. visas. Khallad and al-Taizi were both Yemeni citizens, thus not able to easily obtain visas to the United States. The two Yemenis were assigned for the Asia component of the plot. When Mohamed Atta and other members of the Hamburg cell arrived in Afghanistan, bin Laden was involved in selecting them for the plot, and assigning Atta to be the leader.[15]
