I had often heard bits and pieces of this story.
But until recently,I couldnt find any hard evidence proving it.
It has to be asked,why this isnt refered to,when it comes to the events of 9/11.
Why is this swept under the rug?
Who were in those vans,and why is so little known about this event?

If the van had been parked a few feet closer to one of the pillars, it could have collapsed an entire tower of the Trade Center, killing tens of thousands.

I know, I was just throwing that out there because probably not a lot of people know much about the 1993 bombing.
The FBI was also in contact with the "terrorist cell" they blamed it on, through a man named Emad Salem (another Google search for anyone interested). He ended up becoming suspicious of what the FBI was actually using him for, and started taping the conversations he had with them, which is probably the only reason this information is public today. They gave him a live bomb to give to the "extremists," suggesting that they had to have it in their possession in order to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Of course the bombing actually occurred and then the FBI basically claimed incompetence. The FBI was pretty much egging on a group of Muslims using Salem as a proxy the whole time.

As someone mentioned already, I too remember hearing about vans with explosives being stopped prior to hitting the bridge(s).
What ever became of them??
If the audio is in fact legit, what was situation with the 'Remote Controlled Plane' packed with explosives?
It was mentioned several times from the middle to the end, but nothing else seemed to be reported on it.
