Muaddib, I have seen Stories and reports of these from NEWS
Sources. I have not personally seen The White House neither confirm or deny this in
my travels. It may be out there, but I have not seen it.
"We were looking for symbols of economic might," he told his captors.
He specifically mentioned as potential targets the Library Tower in Los Angeles, which was "blown up" in the film "Independence Day," and the
Sears Tower in Chicago.
A British newspaper over the weekend published a detailed account that it said was taken from transcripts of the interrogation of Mohammed, who
was captured last year in Pakistan.

It for one says "that it said was taken from transcripts". I have not seen these transcripts, have you? It does not name the source of the claim,
yet it does name sources of the AP, and London Sunday Times for others. Was it the Daily Mirror? I don't know. I see no credibility in there
Two they were potential targets claimed by someone who:
The transcripts are prefaced with a warning that Mohammed, the most senior al Qaeda member yet to be caught, "has been known to withhold
information or deliberately mislead."
I have no doubt that these are likely targets. I can believe that there was suppose to be more to the 9-11 attacks than what happened. I think the
grounding of ALL flights did more to thwart an attack. It would cause them to regroup and figure out another way

The officials, who work in law enforcement and intelligence, spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. They said about two dozen
arrests have been made across Europe of people suspected of being involved in the planning of those attacks.
The arrests have resulted from a global manhunt led by the FBI and aided by CIA intelligence that has produced dozens of raids and searches in the
past two weeks.
Information about the overseas attacks emerged this summer, well before the Sept. 11 hijackings, when authorities captured an alleged associate of
Osama bin Laden and he began cooperating, officials said.
The alleged associate, Djamel Begal, provided overseas authorities with information about possible targets and the names of others who might be
involved, officials said.

Again this started Pre-911, the posting of this article is © St. Petersburg Times,published September 28, 2001
so this is very fresh
information, 17 days later.
I still have not seen Geroge W. Bush comment or declare the His Policies and The Department of Homeland Security Have Stopped an attack on the US
since 9-11. Again it may be somewhere, I have not been able to find anything. Not even on The White House Website.
I commend you on doing some research on this. The more people do, the quicker we may come to the Truth. I Hope you, or anyone else can add some more
positve discussion and debate on this...
