A Television News Archive of 9/11


The horrific events of September 11, 2001 are not about politics… or even religion. They were about how a thought — and that’s how it starts — leads to a perverse devotion to a belief that, if certain events occur, some kind of paradise awaits the “brave” crusaders who are the executioners.

And make no mistake: ‘Executioners’ is an apt (and polite) description for the cowards who triggered what will eventually be noted in the annals of history as the tipping point where the extreme and visceral display of mass murder on an unprecedented scale removed the illusions of safety and, more recently, prosperity with a single, heartbreaking and faithless act.

To attempt to grasp the dizzying influx of information on that day, try to make it thru the televised accounts of confusion in this remarkable collection.
