Hijacked planes on September 11
U.S. says al Qaeda-linked man tries to blow up plane
It also is the latest in a string of terrorism-related plots in the United States over the past few months. Al Qaeda militants carried out the September11, 2001, attacks in the United States in which three passenger planes were hijacked.
I believe that FOUR planes were hijacked on September 11, 2001, not three. Please fact check.
Can you please explain to me how only 3 planes were hijacked on September 11, 2001? I am sure the families of the passengers and crew on Flight 93 that crashed in PA would like to know how that plane was NOT hijacked. Nice to try and rewrite history but he will have to wait a few more decades until all of the public who witnessed it die.
Nobody is trying to “rewrite history.” That was a bad mistake made by us in a rapidly developing story. We fixed it, but not before a number of readers noticed: GBU Editor
