A horrible thought. But what's the alternative? I wouldn't want to give that order.

We can try to stop them, but there is so little we can do.

The terrorists have proven they can strike anywhere, even in the heart of the United States, with devastating effect.

We can stop this plane, but what about the next? What about the people onboard?

Commercial airliner or commuter?

************PLANE HAS JUST CRASHED JUST SOUTH OF THE SOMERSET AIRPORT IN PITTSBURGH. NO WORD ON WHETHER IT WAS RELATED OR NOT.

Pray that the pilot ditches it somewhere other than a targeted building.

Just guessing, but if this plane did not hit anything then this plane may have been a hi-jacked plane that was shot down. Or the pilot may have been fighting with terroists.

Yes, assuming the original pilot is still flying it.

Speculation: A commercial pilot would never crash a plane into a populated area, even under threat of death. This seems to mean the terrorists had their own pilots on each of these planes. The crew was killed and the kamakaze pilot took over. This implies a very coordinated and sophisitcated operation with terrorist pilots who can fly these commercial airliners?

I'm afraid you are probably correct about the pilots being killed. What happened to all of the increased airport security??????

WE have got to shoot these hijacked planes down. We've got to. If, God forbid, I was a passenger on one of these hijacked planes, I would understand.

It time to put bounties on the heads of all known terrorists, starting with Osama Bin Laden - $50 Million - DEAD OR ALIVE!. And if thats enough to tempt some destitute Arab to drop a grenade in Osama's shorts, then make it more more.

Its also time to go after these punks with the full weight of the U.S. military - international borders be damned. If Afghanistan wants to shelter this prick, then they should be given one warning of the consequences and then slapped aside!

About the time those posts were made, PJ was already criticizing the president for not being in DC (diverted to a safe location).

Bump for a heart stopping re-read of that mornings posts. "Insane" being the operative word.

Yeah, a bump for the FReepers who had it right, but seeing that headline a minute ago made my heart stop until I checked the dates. It still makes my blood boil, though.

I'm in the process of reading for the first time some of the actual posts of 9/11 and re reading some of them.

You were so correct with this remark that morning:

Speculation: A commercial pilot would never crash a plane into a populated area, even under threat of death. This seems to mean the terrorists had their own pilots on each of these planes. The crew was killed and the kamakaze pilot took over. This implies a very coordinated and sophisitcated operation with terrorist pilots who can fly these commercial airliners?

At 7:52 am on 9/11 you posted what happened on those planes. Hours, days, weeks and months before the mediots ever got around to it.

You are a prime example of why when news breaks, I come to Free Republic not the tv.

We were on the Oregon Coast when this terrible mass murder happened.

We didn't get back home until the evening of 9/12/2001. I'm now reading some of the replies/posts that I didn't read that week.

They are incredible!

I'm responding to some of the people who posted some incredible insight just minutes or hours after the WTC were hit.

With Free Republic, that is a great way to "recycle this news!"

As you posted: We must never forget!

We had checked in on the 9th into the Westin Salishan. It was our 40th anniversary, and we planned on 5-7 nights there. We had spent 5 days in Gold Beach and drove up on the 9th and checked into the Salishan. We did the tourist things in Depot Bay on the 10th and had dinner, a walk on the beach and went to bed early, which is why I was up early on the 11th.

That drive down the Oregon Coast was really surreal on 9/11 last year. As you know that drive south on 101, is one of the most beautiful drives in the world. We would catch ourselves looking some of the awesome scenery and then both of us getting tears in our eyes when the nightmare of the day came back. We knew that thousands of Americans that day would never see another coastal day or drive or just be with their loved ones.

So when are you getting married?

Hi, Gramps! The headline scared me!

On 9-11, I was in Mississippi, just 15 minutes away from going to the airport to return to Oregon. What was to have been a 4 day weekend turned into a 10 day long vacation! Believe me, I almost rented a car to drive home, but hubby wouldn't let me make the trip. ;o(

The flight home was surreal. Very few passengers on the planes, and the airports (especially DFW) seemed empty. Some businesses at DFW had already closed shop...permently. While the flight attendants were pleasant, the pilots looked as though they hadn't slept in weeks! And, bless their hearts, they profusly thanked us for flying with them. BTW, I flew on American, so it was understandable that they were jumpy.
