  •  I recall back then switching off TV and radio... (1+ / 0-)

    after about the fourth or fifth terrorism "expert" (retired military or retired CIA) reiterated the same talking points.

     (I mean, I figured it was AQ and OBL as soon as I saw the news about it.)

    Actually, the TV came earlier, when one of the networks touted "exclusive" video of one of the planes striking the towers.  No, I'm sorry, that was not the time for marketing BS, a$$holes.

    Anyway, here's something I view every 9/11 since then.

    Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity, nothing exceeds the criticisms made of the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. - Herman Melville.
