Thirty Years Ago Today Was The FIRST Attack Of The World Trade Center.

People say never forget when referring to 9/11 but they DO forget 2/26/93 when six people lost their lives.

I remember it because I was visiting NY that day with a friend, we were sitting in an Egyptian cafe having falafel and hibiscus tea (awful stuff) when we heard the sirens and the cafe television interrupted with the news.

I was waiting at Logan Airport for a flight home watching coverage on CNN.

People forget that it was an FBI informant who suggested the WTC as a target to the group

Do you mean the blind sheikh, r5? Was he already an informant or did he become an informant later on? If the former...wow.

I vividly remember that day. I was in junior college full time Mon-Thurs, & had Fridays off. That Friday was cloudy & rainy & I woke up early to do housework & homework & saw the news during GMA.

I kinda forgot about the attack, but my Grandma, who was very into the news, was talking about Osama around this time, I forget how knowledgeable she was.
