five minutes had gone by and I had seen the impact of the plane against the
tower in twenty different channels, the spectacular flames, the deafening fall
of the towers, already a thousand phone calls had been made from relatives and
friends in my country and from far away countries, asking me what would happen

doctors, that that building wouldn't stand the impact and would cave in ?, if
now, after it had happened, they are capable of saying that the collapsing was
produced by the impact and the flames.
finally, without understanding much of this question, I ask myself: how could it
be possible that the Pentagon's computers
malfunctioned? What is left for us, ordinary mortals, if the powerful,
