One of the planes was reportedly an American Airlines Boeing 757 that took off from Boston. BBC is saying 6 killed, hundreds injured.

Bush, in Florida visiting a school, made a brief statement in which he called the crashes an act of terrorism. Cheney, who is in Washington, earlier in the administration had been put in charge of an anti-terrorist task force, presumably has put his team into action on investigation. Bush is enroute back to DC.

Six people are the number of people who were killed in the bombing of the world trade center in 1993. Sadly, I suspect the fatality list is much higher this time, however I don't think anyone has publically speculated on a number. <BR>

What on earth? Just awake here in the West. TV showing World Trade Center on fire and the Pentagon also? Yikes!

Fuel: Pentagon in VA; Executive Bldg behind White House.

CNN reports that AP reports that the FAA has cancelled all flights nationwide for the next 7 hours.

Suddenly the size of a hotel room doesn't seem so important.

MSNBC reports that one of the two planes may have been a hijacked jet from American Airlines... Does anybody know more about how this happened?

God bless and protect us, each and every one.

North Tower hit first; 18 mins later a second plane hit the South Tower. A third plane went into the Pentagon, which has been evacuated. White House is evacuated and reports are AirForce One will be in the air soon (this is where the Prez goes when we declare war). All air traffic is stopped over the U.S.; anything other than AirForce One will be shot down. <BR> <BR>One of the Twin Towers just collapsed when a third plane hit it. <BR> <BR>We are at war, folks.

Does anybody know with WHO???

anon Sep 11th, 2001 06:06 AM

I just read this: <BR> In the past few minutes the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine Abroad has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

anon Sep 11th, 2001 06:07 AM

That was in the Irish Times. <BR> <BR>Plane also crashed into the Pentagon.

3 airplanes highjacked and used in the attacks, 2 of them from Boston, the other they don't know <BR>

WTC tower has now collapsed! <BR> <BR>Oh my God; all of our problems and difficulties seem rather petty now. <BR> <BR>Lynn <BR> <BR>:-(

Kavey Sep 11th, 2001 06:11 AM

Oh my goodness. <BR> <BR>I keep hoping that as few people as possible have been killed and injured. <BR> <BR>I cant get onto any news website. <BR> <BR>Please keep me updated. <BR> <BR>Kavey

Kavey, it's a bit old fashioned, I know, but you might try television or radio. :-)
