"We need all the airports closed right now and the military in here.

I certainly hope that the Air Force has a number of assets in the air as we speak.

unconfirmed--American Airlines is saying one of their planes was hijacked and deliberately crashed into the tower. There's also speculation the commuter plane was hijacked.

Yes, the 2nd plane flew straight between the towers and banked sharply right slamming into the 2nd tower. It hit lower than the first plane.

Not yet, I'm afraid. First plane was apparently a 737

Hijacked planes. Probably with passengers aboard. There's no way around this, there's going to be major loss of life. And who knows the number of people in the towers. The smoke is so bad I don't know how they can evacuate.

..time for the Arabs to feel the might of the United States. I suggest we take out Medina and Mecca...

Abwehr, could I gently suggest that staying as calm as possible is the best way to handle any crisis?

"Any word on who hijacked it?"

Just saw a crawl-line on Fox News that said that the Pallies are calling off truce talks.

Coincidence?

They also said the NYSE is being evac'd. I hope we don't go into some war-footing national lockdown. We need to hit the mofos FAST and HARD.

Don't be too sure. It doesn't cost much to hijack a plane beyond a plane ticket.

They have sealed the Lincoln and Holland tunnels and suspended PATH train service. They're probably going to have to shut down the subways too, I think, at least the West Side lines. Reports that cell phone service is out.

I think, maybe, it is time to make a large area of desert in the middle of the world glow in the dark. Just my opinion.
