A Key Clarification Needed

Reader comment on item: "Death to America"

Submitted by A Reader from USA (United States), Sep 10, 2002 at 00:16

I disagree with the following statement:

"February 1993: Six people killed at the World Trade Center."


This should instead read:

"February 1993: 50,000 attacked at the World Trade Center"

Just because 'only 6 died', misses the whole point that the documented goal was to topple both towers -- and the 50,000 people within them -- with several tons of explosives, which left a crater six stories high in the basement of one of the towers.

That this stated plan was not realized, is nothing short of a miracle.
