"I'm Going To Die, Aren't I?"

During the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui today, jurors listened to the tape of a 911 call made by a woman named Melissa Doi, who was trapped on the 83rd floor of the WTC south tower.

It's disturbing, but I believe very important to hear. The link is here; scroll down a bit to the center of the page.

Enraged at the madmen responsible for 9/11? You bet I am. I'm also furious with a feckless president who---while we stumble around in Iraq---has allowed Bin Laden an extra half-decade of life that this poor woman never had.

I agree that it's important to hear, and I think doing so drives home exactly what happened on that day.

I also am critical of Bush and Co. However, I find your unrelenting harping on the admin. neither cunning nor realistic. You should be on the "Daily Kos'

What exactly do you propose we DO about Islamic terrorism, Iran, etc. I have only heard what NOT to do from you.

MSJ, good work.

Prescott, it is completely reasonable to complain about enacted policy and not necessary to suggest actual policy. Though, suggesting changes in the policy-makers is something that TCR has done... Note who he voted for in 2004.

Now, to suggest actual policy. We need to redouble or retriple out efforts on al Qaeda now. Bin Laden says they are planning another attack (said so in January, I believe) and that is exactly the warnings he gave Europe in the past few years. He is usually true to his word, the bastard.

I suggest you watch "Dire warning on bin Laden" from 60 Minutes. (scroll down about a dozen clips or so)

Those have got to be the most quaint notions I have ever read. They don't want to enrich uranium for nuclear energy. They want to build a bomb, and protect themselves ala North Korea.

“Iran’s proven oil deposits have officially been put at over 132 billion barrels, 102 billion barrels of crude oil plus 30 billion barrels of liquids"

Why would Iran possibly need nuclear energy?

ADDICTION, anyone???

I assume they want to protect themselves from political/military pressure from the U.S., Israel and other Gulf Regional powers.

But threatening to rain fire on Israel, denying the holocaust, and agitating in Iraq is probably not the best course of action if, as a country, you are looking to be left alone by the U.S.

Sorry to go off topic.

C.R., I just wrote a long post and explained why the Johnelle Bryant case is important to the 9/11 investigation but once again my post mysteriously disappeared.

I'm not going to recreate it but if you are interested, I posted a news story about Johnelle Bryant along with some other info in the TPM Cafe as Mrs Panstreppon.

Yesterday, I called the USDA in Washington DC after finding Johnelle Bryant's name in the USDA directory. After all of this time, she still had a message at the number advising callers that she was moving to Miami.

Today, I wrote an email to the manager of the Florida City Farm Service Agency and asked whether he could put me in touch with her.

Think about it, C.R. Johnelle Bryant claimed to have met with several 9/11 hijackers. According to all other records, Atta was not in the US in April 2000 when Bryant said she met with him. The 9/11 Commission omitted any reference to Johnelle Bryant.

When I mentioned Johnelle Bryant here a couple of times, I referred to her interview on CBS 60 Minutes but there is no record of it in the CBS archives so I may have made a mistake. But there is no record of the Johnelle Bryant interview in the ABC News archives but other stories refer to it including the BBC.

I checked Lexis-Nexis and the Johnelle Bryant story seems to have been scrubbed from major US newspapers. All I got was a citation in the Toronto Star and some other foreign papers.

The Johnelle Bryant interview was on a major network in prime time. She was a federal employee and would have to have gotten approval to go on television to talk about the 9/11 hijackers. That story was frightening if you believed it.

The FBI would have investigated her story six ways from Sunday but no one from the FBI was interviewed. No one from Bryant's office was interviewed but they surely were all questioned by the FBI.

Bryant's story went straight to a major network, not a newspaper like the Miami Herald. Who arranged the interview? Who approved it? Who at ABC vetted the story?

If ABC had any doubts that Johnelle Bryants' story was not true, it should never have aired it. ABC owes it viewers an update as to why the 9/11 Commission left it out of the report.

The FSA employees who worked with Johnelle Bryant must have had a tough time when the FBI investigated Bryant's story. I'm sure they were all trying their hardest to remember if they ever had any contact with anyone suspicious. You would do your best and tell the FBI everything and anything that might be helpful.

I can't imagine what Johnelle Bryant went through but she managed to remember a great deal about what Mohammed Atta said to her. As I said, her story was quite frightening if you believed her.

No more quaint than the notion that we would be greeted, with flowers, as liberators in Iraq or, similarly, that the Iranian pro-American youth will rise up if we bomb the hell out of Iran to oust the radical leadership or that we can just get away with dropping a couple of tactical nuclear weapons on a sovereign nation without consequence. So, yeah, I am quaint. It beats being delusional. It's really tragic how Bush supporters don't seem to fathom that Bush's policies did so much to push Iran to Islamist fundamentalism and away from the very thing he says he supports; democracy.

As a fellow New Yorker, TCR, I whole-heartedly agree with this post.

Wow, a liberal agreeing with a conservative on something. Go figure! (I agree with you more often than not.)

Here is something that struck me funny.This woman claims she is a bank loan officer.She is one cool cucumber if you asked me for a bank loan officer,here is what she claimed she said to Muhaammed Attah in her ABC interview when Attah said "What stops me from coming behind that desk and cutting your throat and taking the money".Her response JOHNELLE BRYANT: "Coming behind your desk and cutting your throat and making, and making off with all the cash in that safe because you don't have any security in your office." And so I told him, "No, there's no cash in, in the safe, number one. And I told him number two, my, my training would prevent him from coming behind the desk and cutting my throat."
