Hmmmm....in the weeks prior to 9/11 there were frequent "blackouts" at WTC 1 & 2. GW/Cheney's Master's must be planning another "terrorist attack". After all, I'm sure the "powers that be" do not like the fact that Mr. Obama is doing well in this election. Get ready for another "terrorist attack" and for Martial Law to be declaired.

9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB!!

Haha, very true, I knew there were issues with the metro that day, but its not uncommon for trains to share a track.
I live in NW, and honestly had no idea that there was a power outage.
