Looks like it hit around the 85th floor. Nothing else as of yet.

They just said that if this was an accident, it would be a "needle in a haystack" type of accident. FOX NEWS - don't know who said it.

Obviously a coordinated attack. Empire State Building should be evacuated immediately.

"I'm afraid war will be the result of this."

To have done this they were asking for war. At the worst possible time also, when people were just arriiving at work...

Is it time to reconsider our nation's policy against assasinating foreign leaders? Is Arafat going to do the the U.S. what he done to Israel?

Bury that animal!

I'm afraid this is a large scale coordinated attack.

Fires are being reported at the Old Executive Building near the White House and at the Pentagon.

It may be a good idea to exclude CNN coverage of these events for now. They're pretty much off target on this stuff today.

This is the response we reap from clinton's chickenshit, one day, "War on terrorism" when he bombed Osama Bin Laden as a diversion on the day Lewinsky testified..

I doubt Arafat had anything to do with this. This was almost certainly Osama Bin Laden.

This is war. It needs to be declared, and we need to start invading Afghanistan, Pakistan, and anywhere where these vermin are hiding, and take them out. Yes, all the pissant little countries will scream and yell, but what else can they do to us they haven't now already done?

See, that's the problem with terror. It is more potent when it is a THREAT than when it is a reality. Once the unthinkable has happened, as it now has (I still feel like I'm inside a Tom Clancy novel), then we have nothing left to lose.

Start moving carrier-based invasion groups into position, start moving the Marines onshore. Occupy capital cities if we have to. Kill the vermin, not only for us but for the safety of the rest of the world.
