    Really important questions would be *who* the responsible parties were and
    *where* their associates are now. It seems fingers are pointing toward bin

    I'm dumbfounded. I talked to a friend who lives in New York last night and
    was so happy just to hear his voice. It took him 8 hours to get home from
    work. He wasn't in the middle of it. I can't even imagine what the people
    with loved ones who were injured or killed due to the terrorist attacks on
    NY and DC are dealing with right now.

    Why questions could, if Islamic jihad terrorists are indeed responsible,
    involve US policies toward Israel over the years and our military
    involvements in Iraq among other things. I was trying to be moderate on the
    Israel-Palestine issue before these incidents. I was even thinking
    critically toward Israel. Now I'm gravitating toward Israel.
