Hey all,

It will soon be determined the general origin of the attackers.  The black 
box from the Pittsburgh plane will be found soon.  Whether the speakers 
speak english, spanish or arabic will be instantly obvious.

If Bin Laden is found to be the generator of this attack, I expect an 
ultimatum for his arrest shortly.  God help the countries that harbored him.
