    OK guys this one is still fresh so Im going to give it its own post, if there are other events for this date make a new post or use this thread to remember all our citizens that lost their lives.

    September 11, 2001: Four planes were hijacked by forgein terrorists. Two planes hit the World Trade Center in NYC, one crashed in Pennslyvania, one hit the pentagon. It was the worst attack on US soil since Pearl Harbor. I dont recall the exact number but around 3,000 people were killed.

    One quick question about that: Supposedly there was a fourth plane that hit the pentagon. Whats up with that? The government maintains that it happened, and the conspiricy people have found no evidence of a plane. Should that be mentioned and corrected, or do you support the three plane theory?
