Here’s what I know so far. First plane crashed in to the World Trade Center this morning. As news cameras were showing the wreckage, and people were speculating if this was a navigation error or what, a second plane crashed in to the other tower. One of those planes was confirmed to be a hijacked commercial flight as a 767 that was supposed to be going from Boston to LA. Potentially up to 158 people on that one plane. Another one was a flight with 57 people. Both towers later collapsed while they were being evacuated. Another plane then crashed in to the Pentagon, but most of that is underground, so… Part of the White House and most other major government buildings were evacuated in D.C., New York, and the rest of the country. Many other major landmarks have been evacuated as well, including the Mall of America over here by me. There have been bomb reports around New York as well, about 4 additional explosions so far from either car bombs or over heated cars. There was a threat at a high school, but no one was there and I don’t know what’s happened with that one. No one is sure who has done this, but something this complex and well coordinated could only have been done by a few. One report has come from a reporter with access to Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden that he threatened a major attack like this a few weeks ago. As far as the U.S. infrastructure goes, New York (Manhatten at least) has lost all cell phone and some land line service. I currently cannot send any emails out of my two way pager.
