I saw their special tonight. They are offering it on VHS and DVD with a special reprint edition of the TIME magazine 9-11 issue. I forgot the number, but it is worth the $17.00.

I've heard the media plans to shift focus on the 2 year anniversary to evaluate our success or lack thereof in the WOT. Interesting that Commie News is showing this tonight--makes me wonder what they have planned for closer to the date.

I ordered this very same DVD on amazon for $11.00 today.

This is a very good archive; intense, yet comprehensive.

Don't know what all they are showing... but to me without a doubt one of the most moving things was the CBS show called 911 which was basically that film of those two French guys doing a documentary at the time.

I still can't forget hearing folks die who jumped... or for that matter looking at all of those firemen/cheifs on their phones in the Lobby of (tower 1 I think it was) and seeing how frantically they were working... and knowing that all of em were going to die within minutes of the taping.

Heroes... every one of em.

Sure wished CBS would have bleeped out the profranity (as I'd kinda like my kids to see it and they're still young). But other than the language issue (for those with kids), it is definitely worth watching. Just yet another very good reminder of the who the heros are and what the villans are willing to do.

What I would like to be able to set up is several hard drives with video streams synchonized with each other connected to multiple large screen monitors. That way it would be possible to compare the coverage of several networks as it unfolded in real time.

Heroes is right. How I wish our country could be united again as we were in the days following 9/11. It's the only good that could have come from that horrific day.

A book worth taking the time to read;

Report From Ground Zero, by a New York Firefighter that was there Dennis Smith

...and interviews with various other firefighters and EMT personnel who were at different area's during 911. It goes (very specifically) into that day and what all of those brave men and women went thru, it even mentions those two French guys and even has an interview/recounting from one of them I believe.

CNN- America Remembers.

Whatever you do, the first DVD you must order is 9/11- The Filmmakers Commemoratvie DVD Edition. It is the archive of the French film crew who were with a particular firehouse in New York.

It's excellent, and provides footage inside Tower One of the firemen, the sound of bodies crashing through to the ground, and one of only two pieces of footage of the first plane hitting the North Tower.

Together, these would be the best pieces you could own.

DISH with PVR is the only way to go, Lurker.

Cut the cable (unless, of course, you tethered to it because of your cable modem for web access).

I've had satellite for seven years, and I'd NEVER go back to cable.

Hey! How are you - I haven't seen you for awhile!

Sorry your cable went out - but CNN is supposed to be showing 9/11 connected stuff all week. Besides, there are some great threads on FR which have some great links to 9/11 threads or videos.

Also sinkspur told me they just bought the CNN 9/11 video at Amazon for $11.

I give credit to CNN for showing the tower jumpers. They are the first network to do it in a long time.

For whatever providential reason, men from that firehouse and the young firefighter who was the subject of the film all survived that day. This is one riveting tape and one of the most astounding films ever made. I taped the original CBS broadcast and am ordering the DVD. And yes, there is rough language that has not been edited out. But (unfortunately) only very young and sheltered children have not heard these words before, and probably should not be watching the film, due to its intensity, in any event.

I watch this DVD once a month, at least, and never fail to cry, and rant, and marvel at the heroism of my fellow Americans.

You can often get the CNN DVD shrinkwrapped on eBay for about five bucks. Probably not this week, of course, but if you're willing to wait about a month...(I've had the DVD for more than a year, got it for free as an office perk; it'll keep, trust me.)

Amen.

BTW, a (possibly true) sea story from the Pentagon:

The plane hit in a mostly-Navy area.

Well, if you're going to be in a building that takes a catastrophic impact that starts a major CONFLAG, best to be there with a bunch of sailors. The US Navy has two official religions: damage control and firefighting. Everyone organized into teams to fight the fires, communicate with other teams, and rescue trapped or injured personnel. They couldn't do it for very long, but the word is that "dozens" of people were saved by the teamwork and refusal to quit shown by our sailors. But the fires were too intense, and the tools at hand too small, so everyone had to fall back pretty quick.

Around that point, Secretary Rumsfeld went towards the damaged area of the building to get a first-hand look. A Marine Gunnery Sergeant, headed the other way, bellowed, "You are in the Presidential Line of Succession, GET YOUR (Biblical beast of burden) TO A SECURE AREA NOW!

Word is Rummy just made a U-turn and beat feet. You don't argue with a senior Marine Corps noncommissioned officer, even if you ARE the SECDEF.

I give them no credit. They are sitting on video thousands of times more graphic than mere tower jumpers, but have steadfastly refused to air one second of it from the moment it was recorded. Why? Because we the Little People can't handle it. They, the Journalists, have spoken.

(I call them "mere" tower jumpers because, if you did not know the circumstances of the video before watching it, your only thought would be, "Why are these people jumping out of a burning building?" Only via the knowledge that it is video of the WTC on 9/11 does it become bone-chilling. The true story of the carnage that took place that day, however - the photos and videos that would enrage you beyond belief the moment you saw it, regardless of the circumstances - well, CNN isn't ever going to allow you to see that. After all, it might make you mad enough to demand revenge against those that perpetrated the crime ... and to do that wouldn't be very liberal and peace-loving of CNN, now would it?)

I saw part of it, I think everyone should see it at least yearly in perpetuity so that we never lose our anger and resolve to wipe those slimy no good terrorist scum from the face of the earth.

I agree - when I had Windows ME - you could set your pictures folder so it would rotate as your screensaver. However, my son just installed Win 2000 and now it doesn't do that - bummer. The problem is - I have all these pictures of 9/11 which I had rotating as a screensaver. I miss being able to see them - you're right - it kept the anger up and kept me motivated to write emails and fight against the awful influences we are subjected to on a daily basis.

I first saw the CNN film when I was attending an FR function in Las Vegas. I did not have cable at home, so I got to see it in the hotel room - it was stunning.

Did anyone else watch the A&E special the other night? It was called 7 Days or something like that?

The first hour or so was riveting, I cried multiple times. Then after that I noticed a definite "left leaning" theme.

It started by showing President Clinton (who actually, in my opinion was pretty good during the immediate aftermath), when asked if we were going to war with Afgahnistan said something to the effect of "The President will decide that, after an investigation". But soon they started showing all of the "peace" lovers fighting with the "war" lovers. They also never mentioned or showed President Bush, and only one quick audio of Mayor Guilliani.

I was pretty disappointed by the end of the two hour special. It gave the impression that we deserved this, and if we don't start treating the Arabs with respect we will be doomed to Hell.

Maybe it was only my impression, but I couldn't believe the lack of conservative opinions.
