Those who fought the terrorist?
I read about this on dembloggers and found it interesting.


Snip: < On September 11, following the terrorist attacks, George Bush was busy reading My Pet Goat, and then took 48 hours to show any semblance of being in control . Who ever was making decisions quickly decided to use the attacks for partisan gain, as well as to push through preexisting neoconservative foreign policy goals and conservative views on restricting civil liberties.

While the White House cared more about politics than national security, there was one group on September 11 which responded immediately by fighting the terrorists. This was the passengers on Flight 93. Discovery Channel will be showing a recreation of the hijacking on the fourth anniversary of September 11. AP reports that, "The program will be called 'The Flight That Fought Back' and will include about 45 minutes of re-created scenes depicting what happened before the plane crashed in a Southwestern Pennsylvania field. Forty passengers and crew members were killed." >
