I've always found it strange how much we knew within the first hour of the WTC plane hits
as well as the detailed info on Osama and Al'Queda within the first hour on national news
As for the hijackers, my concern has always been how within such a short time after the plane crashes we knew all their names and their faces. (not certain how long after, but I could have sworn it was within the day - again, if anyone can straighten me out on that, I'll be in your debt)

what about the hijackers who were still alive (i think it was 7 or 9) after 911 - is that just a case of other people using their alias'?
The BBC had similar mistakes on an early report of 9/11 Hijackers and has retracted as well.

This is only one of the "mistakenly" identified hijackers. Furthermore, I have seen no evidence of any of the reported terrorists actually being on the plane.
The media are ususally quite accurate about defaming someone, in the interests of not getting sued.
Never was it more important to get the story right.
Yet we are to believe that various news outlets all made the same exact mistakes on both sides of the Atlantic?
because it was newsworthy information
Why were they in such a rush?
Probably a "suspect list " from any number of investigative departments-- If I had to venture a guess, I would say Boston PD. (speculation) It seemed in the early days of the multiple investigations the Boston Globe had a lot of information on the terrorists, especially Flt 11. Which leads me to believe the Boston press had a good rapport with BPD. (again speculation-- but having previously been in law enforcement for 10 years I can see that being plausible)
Where did they get their information?
The story was not erronios. This cuts to the core of the truth about 9/11 and you label is erronious?
