I assume this means that even the State Department might come to admit that the "Spirit of Oslo" is dead.

If it can be confirmed that this is an official claim (that is, authorized by the group's leadership), then everyone we can find who is connected with that group should be killed, whether they actually did it or not.

By this time next month, I want Satan to be welcoming hundreds of terrorists to Hell.

If that's true it was the stupidest thing they've ever done. I am not sure I believe it. I think China is ultimately behind it.

At this point, I don't believe anything that Israeli Radio has to say, either.

They have not reclaimed responsibility at all. They have denied it. This story is a nonsense designed to stir up hate before the facts are known.

with a coordinated attack like that, how many dozens of 'people' knew what was about to happen and did nothing, knowing that tens of thousands would be murdered?

I doubt China would risk the loss of business. It was Palestinians. Time to throw them out of the US. Time to tell Yassar to bring the people forward or we start hammering him.

It's time to write Israel a blank ckeck. They can do anything they want now.

Looks like the FBI had it right, to investigate InfoCom.

Wanna bet your buds in Hamas had something to do with this?

You better lay low for awhile.

God Bless the victims and their loved ones.

I think every crazy terrorist group would want to claim responsibility for this. It could be anyone, but I don't think it's China. These are 3 independent suicide attacks, similar to those we've seen in Israel and against the USS Cole and Lebanon. I would bet on Bin Laden or another anti-western element. This one was very complicated and well executed. We are going to smash some heads.

Business? China's prime business is to kill us. The only reason palestinians would do this is if they wanted to commit mass suicide of their race.

I don't think whoever did it wants to admit this one. Gonna be some heat. If the Palestinians did it they won't need liberating anymore.

NPR also reporting the "Democratic Liberation Front" or some such group is taking responsibility.

"Democratic" ... only appropriate.

Didn't even make the connection. You could be right. Maybe they had an inkling of something to come and needed the evidence ASAP. Obviously the obvious choices are obvious, but it could be any group.

DFLP Claims Responsibility for World Trade Center Attack The United States Pentagon has officially announced that the plane crashes into the World Trade Center in downtown New York City was a terrorist attack. Abu Dhabi television reports that the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, headed by Naif Hawatme, has taken responsibility for the cataclysmic terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

The Pentagon has also suffered an explosion, and is being evacuated at this time. The White House and the Sears Tower in Chicago, too, are being evacuated.

State Department officials are already releasing unofficial statements that Palestinian terror organizations are claiming responsibility for the attacks.

This is from the arutz 7 website

Some group called "The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine" has taken responsibility. I have never heard of this group before.

However the Israeli Gov't thinks it is the work of Osama Bin Laden.

It appears that lots of folks have been killed, according to some of the people being interviewed on television

I think your assertation that China is behind this will prove to be true but most probably will take a while. Mr. Clinton & Gores Chinese connections have finally paid off. I would like to know where Clintons, Gores,Jacksons and the Congressional Black Caucuses were at the time of these bombings.When you cant or wont follow the money it leaves you wide open to something like this.

Bush needs to make this a national emergency (duh) Get all foreign ambasadors out of the country. Deport all palestianians period. Deport anyone from a country that commits terrosist acts period. Close the borders period. Find out who is responsible and eliminate the entire country from the face of the earth.

I hope he has the balls to do it.

If it is the Palestinians, my vote would be for B-52s and 24-7 carpet bombing til there ain't nothing left over there. Gen. Haig just said we should be resolute and firm. What General was it in the Philipines turn of the century who threatened to bury them with pigs?

Breaking-another hijcked plane on route to Washington. 9:30 PM CDT. Fox news.

It would be too stupid of the Israelis to try to smear the PLO because the truth will come out soon.

The second building at the world trade center just collapsed now. Such a tragedy.

It's called lack of security. It's called complacency. Because we are soft, we expect every one else is. We don't control our borders. Any one can come right in. We seem to have no intelligence. No competence. Bush wants to loosen our southern border even more. It is insane. We have disbelieved the threat to our nation because we have "peace and safety".

After two terrorist attacks nearby, our military could not even secure the airspace around the Pentagon.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. Incompetence can not be afforded any longer.

Are there any innocent ones? The pictures I see from over there show them dancing and carrying on every time one of their bombers kills people. IMHO, the hell with "measured" responses and "restraint." This is blood for blood time. They seem to like death and destruction and I say give it to them until they are sick of it.

Agreed. There is apparantly a 4th hijacked plane in the air - or now they say it just crashed near Pittsburgh!. 5th plane on the way to Washington? Or was that the same as the one in Pittsburgh? This was very well coordinated, and they hit us hard. I can't believe they were able to take 4 planes at once!

Someone needs to pay for this.
