Tuesday, 11 September 2001 : "bit more"Flipping between CSPAN, CNN, FOX News, local channel 9, ABC, MSNBC...
Some eyewitness accounts from Politechbot:
Radio is out due to loss of transmitters on the collapsed WTC towers.
The WTC towers had a distinctive structural system which utilized the exterior wall framing for lateral bracing -- a so-called lattice framework. This allowed minimization of internal lateral bracing and opened up the floor plans. You can see the effect of that when the buildings collapsed, with the lattice framework crumbling and the interior imploding. The lattice works so long as it remains intact as a system: if a part of it goes, then the whole system goes.
[Reuters] A senior official from the radical Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine denied Tuesday the group had any connection to a double plane crash onto New York City's World Trade Center.
Mayor Giuliani said on CNN that when the WTC2 collapsed, there will still many many emergency personnel inside.
There hasn't been another strike for a little bit... I don't expect that this is all over, though. To increase total terror, one would probably allow people to breathe again and then hit them once they relaxed.
