Photos: World Trade Center, September 13, 2001 (Graphic intensive)
http://www.zombietime.com/wtc_9-13-2001/ ^

Posted on 03/27/2006 1:01:41 PM PST by Wooley

These photos were taken at Ground Zero, the World Trade Center site in New York, on September 13, 2001.

They were taken by someone named "Ed" who was allowed into the area by a member of the emergency response crew, at a time when all civilians -- including most journalists -- were forbidden to enter the area. As a result, these photos are just about the only close-ups ever taken of the World Trade Center site so soon after the 9/11 attacks.

When I see those pummeled neighboring buildings, I wonder what it must have been like for people in them. Is anyone aware of any anecdotes from people who were in buildings that had debris raining down on them?

A sad price we've paid for sucking up to the Saudi's.

Why we had troops in their pithole of a country is beyond me.

Energy independence is the only answer to this stupidity.

Wow, amazing. It seems hard to believe now this ever happened. I wish this would be published in a widely read source somewhere to snap Americans out of their vile complacency that is telling them we need to withdraw from the fight against these very Al Qaeda animals in Iraq who did this to us on 9-11. But the MSM will never print these photos because it might help Bush if people remember how terrible and horrofic that day was.

"Energy independence is the only answer to this stupidity."

Al Qaeda will not cease wanting to do us in just because we no longer buy Saudi oil, which I've never heard as a stated reason for their wanting to attack us to begin with. And we have nearly all our troops out of Saudi Arabia now since we no longer need to patrol a no fly zone in Iraq (a fringe benefit of having overthrown Saddam). Yet Al Qaeda still wants to do us harm.

Let's not fall prey to the battered wives syndrome interpretation of why Al qaeda hit us which says "They had to hit us, we made them mad!" No, they hit us because of who we are, what we believe, what we represent and because of what we stand in the way of their doing. Make no mistake about that.

Too bad America has forgotten 9/11 completely.

They should show the video of the attacks weekly and pics like these daily.

Instead, 9/11 was just a "misunderstanding" the MSM would like to bury.

"Islam and smoldering wreckage" go together perfectly. So many pictures from the Middle East show people going about their business with burning cars and wrecked buildings in the background. That's daily life. And here it was in our nation, in New York.

I still can't get my mind around the magnitude of the destruction on that fateful day for America.

Many thanks- as my old pal from long-dead boards, ALOHA RONNIE, likes to say, "Never Forget!"

Crosslinked:

Where It's 9-11 All the Time...Click the picture...

"Where it's nine-eleven all the time
and no Sun sets, and no clocks chime
where no voice speaks and no bird trills
the Moon hangs frozen o'er the hills
The winds are still, they seem to say,
Reflect, remember, stop to pray..."

"NEVER, EVER FORGET!!!!"

Looking at these photos, it occured to me why the left has forgotten.

People on the left can be angered easily. When they want blood, they want it now, and a lot of it. But this event... it didn't touch them. Take for example, someone in Ohio, where I am. We saw the images. We heard the stories. But, if one is self absorbed, the effect on our daily life was negligible. The internet didn't go down. Our electric stayed on. We could get gas and food. There was virtually no inconvenience of any type.

If the left is hit with something that say... disrupts the flow of coffee to starbucks, then look out, they'd be behind invading Iraq, Iran, Saudi, and Syria all in the same day.

Thank you for the excellent pictures. I find it truly amazing that the MSM never shows us the awful pics anymore (oh, we cant handle it) but everytime I turn on the radio I hear about who got blown up in Iraq in the last 15 minutes. Unreal.

And now we have Sen. Feingold attempting to censure the President for having NSA intercept phone calls to Al Qaeda 'freinds and family'. Feingold has forgotten who is the real enemy, if he ever knew.

A friend's son worked in Building 7 and had to dodge falling bodies as he escaped his building.

The word trauma doesn't begin to cover what the people involved in that day experienced.

And to know that it was the NYSlimes who sued to obtain the recordings that are now being played on TV and radio of the frantic calls of trapped people......there really are no words for my hatred of the media.

I consider them too, enemies of our country.

I disagree. If Bush was President and Starbucks was hit, the left would still oppose.

Remember this:

The left despises 9/11 because they cannot capitalize on it. Period.

Flashback time.

I haven't seen photos from the windows of the neighboring building like that. I think I was in that building, maybe even at that window, in October of 2005.

That big crane was huge. You don't really get a sense of scale in the photo. You could see it from Staten Island.

These need to be seen by more than just FReepers.

Just remember they came in from out of our country on visa's that were expired REMEMBER that AND also REMEMBER that if people enter with no visa's and sneak in could they possibly mean harm to our country as well??

Yes I am definitely referring to the illegal aliens who sneak in and we do not know where they are and what they are doing, do NOT ASSUME they came here to work.
