Now, you throw some of the people in these threads into the aviation forum, and I'll sink every freethrow or three pointer you can want to see.
Sheikh Mohammed said that targets that were not included in the 9/11 attacks were to be carried forward to the next operation, and that the original plan called for Moussaoui to lead the next attack operation in the U.S.
Two sources familiar with intelligence information said the West Coast plot targeted the tallest building in Los Angeles, since renamed the US Bank Tower, and involved Malaysian militants and Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, who was captured in 2003. Previous reports on Mohammed's interrogations in custody said that before Sept. 11 he mapped out an attack on the tower that was later aborted.
KSM denied that Moussaoui ever had a 9/11 role, reiterating his previous statements that Moussaoui was intended for the second wave of attacks. Sheikh Mohammed explained that Moussaoui was preparing for a second wave of attacks which entailed the same steps as the september 11th hijackers:
getting flight lessons, purchasing knives, etc.

If there were terrorist in the tower planting bombs, what is the point of keeping that a secret. It honestly wouldn't have made a difference in anyone's mind.

i like how everyone uses the elevators to say that gas and other stuff went down them and exploded or whatever they say. yet so many people dont realize there isnt one huge elevator that goes from the bottom floor to the top.....its actually split into 3 sections..you ride one up 1/3...get out and get into a diffrent one...ride another 1/3 up and finally get into a diffrent one...so please explain how flammables goes down the elevator to the bottom?

I mean just think if we jump to fast toward this and say this is a fact Bush will say that we "misinterpret" and say exactly what leftbehind said.
It good that we fought to see who right or wrong but after all this reading it bad information and we should just keep for reference. You just in case.
It is also good that we found out the information is flawed so we can't spread it around a say it fact.
I think that what they had in mind with this speech.

one small observation for my part. to those who say that when he said explosives, he actually meant the planes.
that is a BIG difference and bush would know this because he was trained as a pilot and would know flying terminology. he even stated that he thought the pilot was bad, having been a pilot himself. one CRASHES a plane, GUIDES a plane, AIMS a plane, one PLACES explosives. taking into account all the other high rises in new york, the actual target zone for impacts on the towers drops. the planes could only really hit the upper thirds safely. so, if one were to place explosives, it would be in conjunction to have them high enough with the plane impacts for maximum effect.
