Thanks for the thread and it would nice if you could post TV coverage for those of us who don't have cable. I look forward to seeing this on the networks once the President's coffin arrives in Washington.

It's good you are not there...

I was just on another thread that said intercepts have been handed over to US authorities and two terrorists arrested. The intercepts talk about a chemical attack planned for Washington, DC as well as suicide bombers.

Inbound aircraft is being noted. Brian Wilson says people in the line were told to run. Wilson says whatever it was, crisis seems to be over.

Al Qaeda terrorists in Washington? I haven't heard anything to that effect. Still, its a reminder 9/11 as well the memory of President Reagan both live on in our country's consciousness.

Also, I should clarify...

Article says chemical attack planned for America but didn't identify Washington, D.C. specifically.

They were able to identify the plane and they let people go back to their rightful places in line.

Brian Wilson reported they were told to RUN. Lester Holt on MSNBC said he had never been in a situation where such deadly serious warning had been issued and people told to RUN.

All Clear now. Unidentified plane had been identified.

Whew

You are full of dumb comments. If a plane's identity can't be established, precautions are taken.

It seems that Mineta's boys are doing what they're supposed to do.
