    Written by Starrgaizr: Upon request, I have collected links to many of the earliest threads from September 11, 2001 below.

    Al-Qaeda accused the United States of withholding necessary medication from "Blind Sheikh" Omar Abdel-Rahman, the mastermind of the deadly 1993 World Trade Center bombing who died behind bars Saturday. They also released a final statement from the sheikh complaining of strip searches that explored his private parts "front and back," claiming that he could be poisoned behind bars and calling for "the most powerful and violent revenge" in the event of his demise. Abdel-Rahman, 78, was serving a life sentence at the Federal Medical Center, Butner, in North Carolina. He had been blinded at a young age by diabetes, and...

    Mzoudi was a liaison to al Qaeda, witness said. A man claiming to be a former Iranian spy testified Friday that Abdelghani Mzoudi, the second man to be tried for an alleged role in the Sept. 11 attacks, was involved in the preparations to hit the World Trade Center. The witness, who goes by the alias Hamid Reza Zakeri, took the stand at the Hanseatic Higher Regional Court in Hamburg and claimed that Mzoudi, was "responsible for part of the organization" of the suicide attacks that destroyed the twin towers in New York and damaged the Pentagon. Zakeri testified Mzoudi...

    The Jersey Journal ^ | September 13, 2016
    Like countless other people, freelance photographer Rich McCormack of Jersey City snapped a photo of the Tribute in Light at the World Trade Center site last week. But unlike the others, McCormack captured something more than the beams of light reaching up into the night sky. Just what it is that the frequent contributor to The Jersey Journal captured in his image is open to interpretation. It looks like "a vision of the Lord (Jesus) with his arms folded," said McCormack, who took the photo Friday night, Sept. 9, from the Hoboken waterfront.
  • 104 Jumpers Who Flung Themselves From The Twin Towers Have Been 'Airbrushed From History'

    The London Daily Mail ^ | 05:01 EST, 11 September 2011 | Tom Leonard
    From the earliest days after the 9/11 attacks, the American establishment have showed an overwhelming reluctance to dwell on those who jumped or fell from the Twin Towers. Unofficial estimates put the number of jumpers at around 200, but it is impossible to say for certain because their bodies were indistinguishable from others after the collapse of the Towers. As part of its research into where the fire was at its most intense, NIST analysed camera footage and still photographs, and counted 104 jumpers, often recording the floor and exact window from which they left. All but three leapt from...

    The Western Center for Journalism ^ | 8/29/2012 | Derrick Hollenbeck
    Sharia SC Islamists to open DNC with prayer for sharia to replace US Constitution When the Democrat National Convention/”hate-America” festival gets started, it will begin with a “Jummah” or Muslim prayer group. There will be about 20,000 people gathered for a celebration of the Islamists’ plans to eventually overthrow our government and replace our Constitutional government with a Sharia-controlled theocracy. This begs the question: who will be there and what do they represent? The leaders of the Jummah will be Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahha. Both men have a long track record of hatred for America and our way...

    Nearly 15 years after 9/11, New York firefighter and Battalion Chief Larry Stack is slowly but surely moving toward his final resting place. Stack and 342 other firefighters died trying to save lives at the World Trade Center that were destroyed in the September 11th, 2001 attacks. Stacks' remains like many others were never found or identified. So his family didn't hold a funeral for him. They were hoping his remains would be found. Plus, the Catholic Church requires physical remains be present in church for a funeral. After 15 agonizing years Stacks' family remembered he had gone into the...

    LONDON (from compiled intelligence briefs) - Al-Qaida had extensive contacts with Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security, as well as with an elite military unit which helped the terrorists train and plot attacks against Americans, according to a former intelligence officer who recently fled Iran. Hamid Reza Zakeri, a former inspector and director of Iran's Revolutionary Guards and Ministry of Intelligence, or MOIS, member said models of the World Trade Center, the White House, Pentagon and other United States government buildings "were in our headquarters." In an explosive interview with a London-based Arabic newspaper last week, Zakeri stated that...

    A man accused of funneling cash from Osama bin Laden to a radical Muslim cleric who helped plan the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center was on the payroll of the Clinton administration throughout the 1990s. Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was arrested Sunday after being accused of trying to smuggle $340,000 in cash from Lybia to terrorist groups in Syria, worked at the Clinton State Department as a global emissary for religious tolerance. When confronted with news of the curious arrangement just a week before Mrs. Clinton was elected to the Senate, a State Department spokesman told the New...

    On the eve of the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, stunning photos show a rainbow appearing to originate from the World Trade Center in New York City on Thursday.

On Thursday morning, Sturner stepped outside of his apartment in Long Island City, Queens and onto the terrace to check the weather as part of his daily routine. The sight that he saw while standing outside just after 7:00am was...

    This town hall meeting took place Sep 10, 2001 in Amherst Mass 12 hours before the first plane struck the towers in New York City, before the Pentagon was hit, and before Flight 93 was taken down in a suicide dive by the terrorists who were beign overrun by brave Americans. This video is significant because of the statements made at the 40 minute to 50 minute mark and again at the 1 hour 10 minute mark which were in response to comments made at the 45 minute mark. Keep in mind this was made 12 hours before the World...
