It was clear that the Saudis were behind it all along. I feel so sorry for our Mpls/StP FBI woman who reported that these Saudi Arab guys were suspicious, as they signed up and took training to fly planes, but didn't want the courses on how to land. She was reprimanded and removed, before 9/11.

But Bush didn't want to embarrass his Sheik buddies, so blamed it on Iran, and there we went!

*woops, meant Iraq

I think 9/11 is what got me politically engaged.  Back then it was Michael Moore with Fahrenheit 911 and Stupid White Men.

It would seem very little has changed.

I definitely remember 9/11, working at the bank, no customers, and pulled up the news. Called coworkers over, and we cried as we watched live, the towers collapse, cried because we knew how many people  were dieing in those buildings. Can't even imagine the horror they felt, or the horror of those in the streets of New York watching. Crying as the rescuers were giving their own lives to help others.

We cried, they died, it is a sadness only those with hearts of stone can ... oh

It was about 10pm at night for me.  My mum called me and told me to turn on the news.

I just remember the overwhelming shock.

I'm sorry, but this thing looks like a grain silo.

Just watched a documentary called Turning Point, tracing events that lead to 9/11 from  the US helping the mujahideen (who became alquaida and taliban) train and fight the Russians, through the war on terror becoming nation building, through 9/11 and it's aftermath, through our 20 year intervention in Afghanistan.   It is heartrending, but horrifically pertinent to current events.  Will we ever learn?
