This is the best footage I have ever seen of the World Trade Center attacks.
That is truly, truly amazing video. They seemed to have edited out the “most important” parts though— the hit of the second plane and then the collapse of the first building. That’s unfortunate, if they did edit it....
Three things struck me— the incredible noise from all the emergency vehicles, the sound of the news choppers, and the amazing amount of debris and smoke after the second building collapsed. When the first building is first hit, the noise is just deafening from the firefighters and police. Then, after the first building collapses, there is almost an eerie silence and then you hear the echo of one fire engine. Terrible and eerie.
I had never really thought about the news choppers— I wonder what footage they got that we’ll never see.
The cloud of smoke that envelopes everything when the second building collapsed is just amazing.
Sickening. The religion of peace.
Yes, done by the two French brothers. Their day certainly didn't turn out the way they had planned. They did a fantastic job of documenting this national horror.
Sobering indeed. But New York is still there, and will be for a long time. The Taliban, most of OBL’s band of losers and Saddams empire of terror isn’t.
Not a plane
Just ask the moonbats
Whoa. Very sobering. Our politicians haven’t got a clue, except for probably GWB.
It took til post 2 for someone to recognize it was terrorists.
FReepers are good.
That’s the one. I remember that they were French.
Betcha there were two Frenchmen whose attitude about the US changed that day.
mark for later
I heard that bin laden wanted to bring the US to its knees. Someone posted a picture of a man kneeling in prayer and said that he did.
The fool had no idea of the size and resilience of the US if he thought bringing down the towers would cripple us.
PING for later viewing
Bump for later
Isn't it amazing (disgustingly so), that the MSM will keep images from the American public that will outrage us to the point that our fighting spirit is ready to fight and win the War on Terror(ist Muslims), yet they will gladly show images from the terrorists (beheadings, etc.) that are intended by the enemy to demoralize us and destroy resolve?
At minute 22:12 there are lines of people like ants going up something to get to a road to escape. I asked my husband what they were going up to get to the roadway. He said he didn't know in that particular roadway but said, "That's us....That's what it looked like going over the Williamsburg Bridge." He was 7 blocks away from the towers on 9-11.
He telecommutes now.
bump for later...
Because he don’t like black people?
We need to go in an finish the job and .....( don’t want to get banned)
Sobering video. Bookmark ....
God Bless you John. No one will ever forget you.
Dang. I still bawl everytime I see these. But it’s good to remember. NEVER forget. Thanks for the ping, BIGLOOK.
The Man who predicted 9/11 =
9/11 WTC Lifesaver RICK RESCORLA, R.I.P.
(The Rest of the Story)
Current for me as well. And a little personal. I didn’t know anyone killed or injured on September 11, 2001. It is still personal. It was my 46th birthday. It was the birthday of many of those killed in this brazen attack, I found out later. A few years prior, I sort of looked forward to 9/11. Since then, I really could care less. The two events can never be seperated, at least to me. On September 11, 2001, on my 46th birthday, I witnessed 3,000+ of my fellow Americans, and some foreigners, brutally murdered. How can one seperate those two events?
We NEED to see these images every day. Why the media took them off the tube so quickly is beyond me. Must be part of their agenda. I have not forgotten and many here of FR haven’t. These images are the reason we are in the fight we’re in. President Bush said it will be a conflict unlike all others. It is. And we must achieve the ultimate victory over these scumsucking slugs. The Earth need to be purged of this virus called islam.
He did not say pull the building...he said pull it, referring to the removal of the fire fighters as the building was a lost cause. The misquoting of Silverstein has been the basis for a great deal of conspiracy theories. He stated that he was referring to the firefighters on scene, as enough had died that day already.
marking, with hesitation...
A reminder of WHY we fight. Thanks to the people who were kind enough to post the video.
I have been on Ground Zero on 9/11, 2004.
It was the second time I went to NY. The first time I get in the WTC, South tower.
It was frightening to come back just three years after the attacks.
God bless America

“Yo can be sure that Iraq was behind the 9/11 attacks and the anthrax letters that followed”
Dr Laurie Mylroie, professor at Harvard, former adviser for Bill Clinton on Iraq, in a mail to FReeper drzz on May 30, 2007
“If Saddam’s operatives manipulated simple-minded zealots to bomb the World Trade Center, it is only prudent to assume they are capable of striking again”. Boston Globe, January 18, 1995
Here, over a year ahead of time [On July 21, 2001]in the open press in Iraq [Baathist paper Al-Nasiriya], they are writing that this man [Bin Laden]is planning not only to bomb the White House, but where they are already hurting, the World Trade Towers. Senator Hollings, speech about the early warning that could have prevented 9/11, US congress, 2002
Wednesday, June 29, 2005;
NEW YORK (CNN) A Republican congressman from North Carolina told CNN on Wednesday that the evidence is clear that Iraq was involved in the terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11, 2001.
Saddam Hussein and people like him were very much involved in 9/11, Rep. Robin Hayes said.
Told no investigation had ever found evidence to link Saddam and 9/11, Hayes responded, Im sorry, but you must have looked in the wrong places.
Hayes, the vice chairman of the House subcommittee on terrorism, said legislators have access to evidence others do not.
IRAQI PAPER ANNOUNCING THE 9/11 ATTACKS 50 DAYS BEFORE IT HAPPENED
“The arm that is already hurting = the WTC, hit in 1993
Sinatra’s songs = New York, New York
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
According to the court of Justice of New York, Naeem Abd Muhalhal was an Iraqi operative
ABOUT THE PAPER
Al-Nasiriya was a paper edited by the Iraqi regime in Baghdad. This issue was delivered on July 21, 2001.
[From Al-Nasiriya, July 21, 2001] America, an Obsession Called Osama Bin Ladin (By Naeem Abd Muhalhal) Osama Bin Ladin says that he took from the desert its silence and its anger at the same time. He has learned how to harm America and has been able to do it, for he gave a bad reputation to the Pentagon as being weakened in more than one spot in the world. In order to follow one step taken by Bin Ladin America has put to work all its apparatus, its computers and its satellites just as the governor cowboy of Texas has done. Bin Ladins name has been posted on all the internet sites and an amount of $5 million dollars has been awarded to anyone who could give any information that would lead to the arrest of this lanky, lightly bearded man.
In this mans heart youll find an insistence, a strange determination that he will reach one day the tunnels of the White House and will bomb it with everything that is in it. (...) Bin Laden still thinks seriously, with the seriousness of the Bedouin of the desert about the way he will try to bomb the Pentagon after he destroys the White House . . .
The phenomenon of Bin Ladin is a healthy phenomenon in the Arab spirit. It is a decision and a determination that the stolen Arab self has come to realize after it got bored with promises of its rulers: After it disgusted itself from their abomination and their corruption, the man had to carry the book of God and the Kalashnikov and write on some off white paper ``If you are unable to drive off the Marines from the Kaaba, I will do so. It seems that they will be going away because the revolutionary Bin Ladin is insisting very convincingly that he will strike America on the arm that is already hurting. That the man will not be swayed by the plant leaves of Whitman nor by the ``Adventures of Indiana Jones and will curse the memory of Frank Sinatra every time he hears his songs.”

Here is a news story from July 21, 2001, before 9/11 of last year, in the Iraqi news. The name of that particular newspaper is Al-Nasiriya. It refers to an exercise called ``How Do You Bomb the White House. They were planning it. [the author of the Iraqi article writes that Bin Laden] . In other words, the World Trade Towers.

HOMELAND SECURITY ACT, US CONGRESS, 2002

Maybe the US people should know that they are fighting at the right place.
The anthrax letters attacks were committed by Iraqi secret services, according to Richard Spertzel, former ISG inspector : http://www.lauriemylroie.com/files/Spertzel_on_Shoham_Jacobsen2.htm
