According to NBC News, a top al Qaida official who are now held in custody has told the interrogators that the hijacked UA093 that crashed in Pennsylvania on September 11th was heading to the White House.

The passengers on UA93 was trying to seize the plane after hearing the tragedy in New York and Washington. Unfortunately, the attempt was failed. But fortunately, the plane didn't hit the original target: The White House.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Those passengers and crew who fought back on UA93 are truly heros.

It makes sense, the White House would be a prime target, whether the President was there or not.
Is there going to be any kind of memorial to the pax. of UA93 at the crash site?

I think there should be a memorial AT the White House.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.
