9/11 Report: The Chapter On The Hijackings

Fri Jul 23, 2004 4:54 am

Here is the link to the chapter in the 9/11 Commission's Report on the hijacking of the planes. It's sobering reading. The chapter is titled "'We Have Some Planes.'"

http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/US/resources/9.11.report/911Report_Ch1.pdf

For me, two sentences stood out about United Flight 93:

"Jarrah's [The hijacker's] objective was to crash his airliner into symbols of the American Republic, the Capitol or the White House. He was defeated by the alerted, unarmed passengers of United 93."

Bless.
