Are you clairvoyant or something? Why those dates?

Oh... It stands to reason that you could be a terrorist too.

Election time. Both terrorists and incumbents will benefit from playing the terrorist card.

"...the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes or cancer" combined, do not have the "gravitas" of this

More tapes of the 9/11 tragedy were released yesterday under court order. I listened to some of the terrified people trapped in the WTC. An example:

One of the most agonizing calls came at 9:17 a.m. from Melissa Doi, 32, who spoke from the 83rd floor of the south tower.

"Holy Mary, mother of God," said Doi, a manager at IQ Financial Systems, when the operator picked up. "There's no one here yet, and the floor's completely engulfed. We are on the floor and we can't breathe and it's very, very hot."

Over the next four minutes, as the operator advised her to stay calm and wait for help, Doi panicked: "I'm going to die, aren't I?" she asked.

"No, no, no," said the operator.

"I'm going to die," Doi said.

"Ma'am, say your prayers," the operator replied.

"Oh, God, it's so hot. I'm burning up," Doi said.

Several minutes later, Doi's voice went silent, but the operator continued to speak, soothingly, for about 20 minutes, repeating her name over and over and calling her "dear."




From http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...la-home-nation.

(What was not related but which I heard on the original tapes is Ms. Doi screaming twice before her voice went silent.)

We must never forget what was done to us by muslim fanatics on 9/11 when they murdered 3000 Americans in the name of their God.

Good post! I heard some of those too. It is very scary and depressing. We must never forget!
