Did you know our government KNEW Osama Bin Laden was planning to attack the US as early as 1997?!? He told an ABC reporter on camera! But they didn't take him seriously.

  • Yep, I knew that. They also knew that Pearl Harbor was going to be attacked before it was, and discounted THAT information too. One major failing of Americans is that we think we're invulnerable, and that no one would DARE attack us, because we're the USA. (unpuffs chest and rolls eyes)

  • I don't think the people on the plane had much of a choice, they never knew what was happening.

  • FDR knew before hand that the Japanese were going to attack Pearl Harbor. He wanted the US to get into the war to help the economy from the Depression. I'm not surprised.

  • And I've never understood how a plane full of people could just sit back and let the plane they're on be hijacked by 3 or 4 guys armed only with boxcutters. At least we've learned from it... We'll never let it happen again.
