What if the terrorists of 9/11/01 had been able to complete their actual plans to use as many as 10 planes on that horrific day? Their original plan was to use far more planes on that day. Today the results of an investigation into the events of that day reveal that the original plan was to bring far more death and destruction than the terrorists actually unleashed on the U.S.A....

WASHINGTON - The Sept. 11 terrorist plot initially was designed to wreak even more destruction on the United States, with 10 planes simultaneously attacking targets on both the East and West coasts, the independent panel investigating the attacks reported Wednesday.

Providing new details on the planning of the plot, the commission staff said that al-Qaida planner Khalid Shaihk Mohammed initially proposed a Sept. 11 attack involving 10 planes that would be used to attack CIA and FBI headquarters, unidentified nuclear plants and tall buildings in California and Washington state.

Mohammed, who is in U.S. custody at an undisclosed overseas location, also told interrogators that he planned to lead the hijacking of one aircraft himself. He intended to kill every adult male passenger aboard, then land at a U.S. airport and make a "speech denouncing U.S. policies in the Middle East before releasing all the women and children," according to the report.

This should show that perhaps it could have been far worse that day. And now that we know this it may have given us some idea of the designed will of these terrorists to bring death and destruction to us on a much more massive scale. This plan was involving hijacked planes and could have killed many more than the approximate 3,000 that found death on that day at the hands of these terrorists IF they had been able to complete their entire original plan.

I hate to even imagine what these terrorists could or will do if they are able to obtain real weapons of mass destruction.

So now they are trying to say "it could have been worse we didn't do that bad." I don't buy any of this for some reaosn.

Thank god this never happened. I think that this is why we always need to be aware of what is going on. And to think Bush blames this on the Clinton Administration.

This 10 planes business is old news, the al Qaeda bosses said it months ago.

Who cares about what "could've" happened? It makes absolutely no difference. What matters is what did happen, and catching those responsible. Not finding out what "could've" happened.

People are losing sight of what's important.
