Nature of the Attack

On September 11, 2001 four jetliners, the Pentagon, and Manhattan were struck in a complex and coordinated military operation involving a series of individual assaults. A critical view of the timeline and targeting of the attack undermines the official story that bands of Islamic terrorists armed only with primitive weapons executed the attack, and that the deadly collapses that followed were merely engineering failures.

The attack killed nearly 3,000 people on September 11th alone. Of course, thousands more would die in the ensuing attacks and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, both predicated on the 9/11/01 attack. Thousands more might eventually die prematurely from exposure to the toxic dust and gases that emanated from Ground Zero for months after the World Trade Center bombing.

The core of the attack -- the events that killed the most people and caused the deepest psychological trauma -- was the demolition of the Twin Towers at 9:58 AM and 10:28 AM. Yet the image seared into most people's memories is that of the South Tower impact. A survey of about 60 newspapers shows that most ran an image of the South Tower crash on their front page, while only one ran a collapse photograph. It is difficult to escape the conclusion that the attack was designed to draw attention away from the collapses by focusing on the plane impacts, and associating bin Laden's image with the events.
