REEVE, MURRAY, LIZ, STAN. (WOMAN) U.S. EMBASSY. D.S.S.H... MADAME AMBASSADOR.

HOW DO YOU DO? (CLEARS THROAT) YEAH? THANK YOU. IS THERE ANY QUESTION IN YOUR MIND ALL RIGHT, MR. O'NEILL, AS TO WHO IS IN CHARGE HERE? IN CHARGE OF WHAT, MADAME AMBASSADOR? ANYTHING YOU DO, ANYTHING ANY AMERICAN PERSONNEL UNDERTAKE IN THIS COUNTRY HAS TO GO THROUGH ME AND ME ALONE, AND YOU MIGHT WANT TO DITCH THOSE SUITS. IT'S 113 DEGREES OUT THERE. I APPRECIATE YOUR CONCERN, BUT MY PERSONNEL AND MY EQUIPMENT ARE BEING HELD UP AT THE AIRPORT BY THE LOCAL YEMENI AUTHORITIES, SO I'M IN A STALEMATE.

IS THIS THE KIND OF COOPERATION I'M TO EXPECT? IT'S YE-MENI, NOT YAY-MENI. CAN YOU SAY THAT? YEMENI. I THINK THE PEOPLE HERE MIGHT APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD PRONOUNCE THE NAME OF THEIR COUNTRY PROPERLY. PARDON ME. I'M SORRY. BUT YOU STILL HAVEN'T ANSWERED MY QUESTION. I AM NOT GOING TO HAVE YOU INFLAMING TENSIONS WITH THE YEMENIS. YOU UNDERSTAND? THIS IS A FLEDGLING DEMOCRACY, WHICH I HAVE NURTURED ON BEHALF OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT, AND I DO NOT WANT YOU COMING IN HERE RUINING ALL MY GOOD WORK.

IT SEEMS TO ME THE BOMBERS OF THE "COLE" MAY HAVE RUINED A BIT OF IT. I WAS TALKING TO A PETTY OFFICER OUTSIDE BURNED OVER HER ENTIRE BODY. SHE COULD BARELY SPEAK. SHE MANAGED TWO WORDS-- "GET THEM." THAT'S WHAT I INTEND TO DO. I INTEND TO GET THEM, TOO. BUT YOU'VE BROUGHT MANY MORE PEOPLE HERE THAN I WAS LED TO BELIEVE, TOO MANY, AND I DON'T WANT ANYONE WAVING ASSAULT WEAPONS AROUND. HANDGUNS ONLY, AND NOT ON DISPLAY. AND HOW ABOUT, UH, TEACHING YOUR FEMALE PERSONNEL HOW TO DRESS IN AN ISLAMIC COUNTRY? FOR INSTANCE, IN YEMEN, WE DON'T TUCK OUR SHIRTS IN. NO FORMFITTING GARB ALLOWED, SO COVER YOUR ASS, WOMAN. THAT CURRENCY IS FOR WASHINGTON. LISTEN, LISTEN! DO NOT MANHANDLE MY AGENTS. THEN TELL 'EM TO BUTTON THEIR DAMN SHIRTS, ALL RIGHT? DON'T MANHANDLE MY AGENTS. I WILL DO WHATEVER THE HELL I PLEASE! THIS MEETING IS OVER. CAN YOU EXCUSE US A MOMENT? CLOSE THE DOOR BEHIND YOU. MADAME AMBASSADOR, WHY WON'T YOU HELP ME HERE? YOU COME IN HERE WITH YOUR PREJUDGMENTS AND THIS BIN LADIN FIXATION. HALF THE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS IN THIS TOWN, INCLUDING THE AIRPORT, WERE BUILT BY BIN LADIN'S FAMILY, WHOSE ORIGINS ARE IN THE HADRAMOUT REGION. THAT'S NORTHWEST YEMEN. I KNOW WHERE IT IS. I KNOW WHERE IT IS. THE MAJORITY OF THE SUSPECTS ARRESTED IN THE "COLE" BOMBING ARE FROM THE HADRAMOUT KINDAH TRIBES, THE SAME TRIBE THAT SPAWNED BIN LADIN'S FATHER, BUT THANKS TO THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES,

WE'RE UNABLE TO QUESTION ANY OF THEM. BY THE WAY, YOU WILL NOT BE OFFENDING THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

I'M NOT HERE TO OFFEND ANYONE! I'M HERE TO DO A JOB! MR. O'NEILL, YOU ARE THE EPITOME OF THE UGLY AMERICAN. I'M CALLING MY SUPERIORS. YOU'RE WHAT? GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR INVESTIGATION. (ADHAN BEING SUNG)

THE PENTAGON HAS BEEN KIND ENOUGH TO PROVIDE US WITH MATERIAL

ON UPDATED TARGET DECKS THAT INCLUDE BIN LADIN'S TRAINING CAMPS, COMPOUNDS, BUILDINGS IN KABUL. AS WELL AS KEY TALIBAN NOW WITH THE NEW PREDATOR DRONE, WITH G.P.S. PINPOINTING WE CAN I.D. TARGETS DESIGNED FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION. IN LITTLE TIME, COULD BE HIT TONIGHT TARGETS LISTED UPON PRESIDENTIAL ORDERS. WE HIT THEM ALL, MY SUGGESTION-- SIMULTANEOUSLY. EVERY KNOWN AL-QAEDA TARGET

WAIT A MINUTE. HAVE CONFIRMATION WE DON'T EVEN FOR THE ATTACK ON THE "COLE." THAT AL-QAEDA WAS RESPONSIBLE WITH INTERNATIONAL LAW. ANY STRIKE MUST BE CONSISTENT NOT RETALIATION, FROM FUTURE ATTACKS. BUT SELF-PROTECTION WE DON'T HAVE (SIGHS) IF YOU'RE SAYING COURTROOM PROOF, ABSOLUTE UNDENIABLE YOU'RE RIGHT. WE DON'T. BUT WE DO HAVE WHAT I WOULD CALL GOOD FIELD INTELLIGENCE, WHICH IS PRETTY DAMNING AND PRETTY CONCLUSIVE, WOULDN'T YOU SAY, GEORGE?

BASED ON EVERYTHING I'VE READ AND EVERYTHING I'VE HEARD, IT SOUNDS LIKE THE AL-QAEDA, BUT BEFORE LAUNCHING A RETALIATORY STRIKE, I THINK WE HAVE TO BE ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE.

(RICHARD) OUR BEST INVESTIGATOR, JOHN O'NEILL, JUST GOT ROTATED OUT OF THERE. TO KNOW CONCLUSIVELY. WE'RE NEVER GOING ON TOP OF THIS, GEORGE? WHY WEREN'T YOUR PEOPLE WAS THE INTELLIGENCE WHERE IN THE HELL PARDON ME? REGARDING THIS ATTACK? GONNA FAIL THE PRESIDENT HOW MANY TIMES IS THE AGENCY AND THIS COUNTRY? I MEAN, THERE'S GOTTA BE A LIMIT! HIT 'EM OR NOT? OKAY, ARE WE GONNA YOU'RE REALLY PUSHING HERE, DICK. OF DEFENSE, BILL. YOU'RE THE SECRETARY THIS COUNTRY TO DEFEND ITSELF? WHAT'S IT GONNA TAKE FOR SUFFICIENT PROVOCATION WELL, I DON'T THINK THERE WAS FOR WHAT YOU WANT TO DO HERE. TO OUR CITIZENS, I THINK WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO OUR PEOPLE IN UNIFORM, TO SHOW THEM THAT WE GIVE A DAMN! HAVE BEEN KILLED, MURDERED, 17 AMERICAN SAILORS SOMETHING NOBODY IN THIS ROOM SEEMS TO HAVE MENTIONED. THEY WERE ATTACKED WITHOUT PROVOCATION, AND YOU'RE TELLING ME WE HAVEN'T BEEN PROVOKED ENOUGH TO FIGHT BACK?

WE ALL ADMIRE YOUR ZEAL ON THIS ISSUE, DICK, REALLY. IT'S VERY IMPRESSIVE, BUT THERE ARE OTHER CONSIDERATIONS. LET ME GUESS, REGIONAL ONES. THE PRESIDENT IS ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN TRYING TO BROKER AN ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN SETTLEMENT, THAT IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT SOMETHING IN THE LONG RUN THAN A ROTE COUNTERSTRIKE AGAINST PEOPLE HIDING IN CAVES. OF SUCH A STRIKE THE DIPLOMATIC IMPACT TO THE PRESIDENT'S EFFORTS. COULD BE DEVASTATING WHILE WE'RE BOMBING MUSLIMS. WE CANNOT MAKE PEACE WELL, IT SEEMS THEY'RE BOMBING US, AND I'M NOT SAYING-- WE BOMB MUSLIMS IN GENERAL. I'M NOT SUGGESTING THE PERPETRATORS! I'M TALKING ABOUT IN THREE WEEKS. DICK, THERE'S AN ELECTION THE REPUBLICANS I CAN JUST SEE MISSILE STRIKE CHARGING A CLINTON IS PART OF SOME STRATEGY WIN THE ELECTION. TO HELP AL GORE IT IS A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE. IT'S NOT AN ELECTION ISSUE. WE HAVE GOT TO GET OFF THE POLITICAL TRACK HERE. WE ARE AT WAR! WE ARE AT WAR. CONSEQUENTLY, A MISSILE STRIKE OR AERIAL BOMBING ISN'T GOING TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU WANT. WHAT YOU NEED IS BOOTS ON THE GROUND. YOU NEED A FULL-SCALE MILITARY INVASION WITH A MINIMUM OF 50,000, PERHAPS 75,000 MEN TO START. ASK THE RUSSIANS. YOU WANT TO INVADE AFGHANISTAN? MASSOUD? WE HAVE A STRONG ALLY IN AFGHANISTAN. EXACTLY. A MILITARY INVASION NO PRESIDENT HAS EVER LAUNCHED OF HIS TERM. IN THE LAST THREE MONTHS YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO THAT BIN LADIN'S SEEKING WMDS. WAIT FOR THAT? WHAT, ARE WE JUST GONNA THE PENTAGON? LET HIM HIT NEW YORK, HE SEEMED A LITTLE UPSET WITH ME. LISTEN, I CALLED TENET, BUT TO TELL HIM, BUT I WANT YOU FROM PRESIDENT CLINTON, AND THIS COMING STRAIGHT OUR INTELLIGENCE, USE THE DRONE TO CONFIRM GOOD. AND GET BACK TO US. of the World Trade Center Dawn is breaking over the site almost exactly five years ago. where planes hit the Twin Towers, Relatives of the thousands who died are gathering there to remember the victims. A suicide bomber has blown up a minibus carrying new Army recruits in Baghdad, killing 14 people.

Steve Irwin's wife and children are expected to attend a public memorial service in Brisbane next week also. for the Crocodile Hunter Stay with Seven. in an hour. I'll be back with more news JOHN, I WANTED TO... ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN YEMEN I WANTED TO SAY I'M SORRY WITH AMBASSADOR BODINE. SHUT ME DOWN. OUR OWN AMBASSADOR GENTLEMAN, SANDRA. THIS IS TARNAK FARM, NOT FAR FROM KANDAHAR. AN AL-QAEDA COMPOUND THEY'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT. (JOHN) THIS IS THE PREDATOR DRONE TARGET ACQUISITION. RECONNAISSANCE, SURVEILLANCE, EQUIPPED WITH COLOR DAYTIME CAMERAS, INFRARED NIGHT VISION, CEILING OF 25,000 FEET SATELLITE UPLINK BY THEM. CONTROLLED BY K.U.-BAND WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT. PAUL, TELL THEM THIS IS UNCONFIRMED, BUT WE SUSPECT THIS IS A SECURITY DETAIL, AND THE TALL MAN IN THE WHITE FLOWING ROBES IN THE CENTER IS BIN LADIN HIMSELF. TANGO COMMAND, GO. COPY, FIVE-BY. THE TALIBAN HAS SCRAMBLED SOME MIGS OUT OF KANDAHAR AIRBASE. THE TALIBAN'S GOT AN AIR FORCE? WHAT THE SOVIETS LEFT BEHIND. LOOK, THAT'S CONFIRMATION IF YOU ASK ME. THERE'S BIN LADIN. HE'S RIGHT THERE. LET'S GET OUR PEOPLE IN THERE! (SHOUTING IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE) IT'S A LASER SITE. WHAT IS THAT? SOMEONE'S HONING ON THE DRONE. (MEN SPEAKING IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE) (STATIC)

(JOHN) WHAT HAPPENED? WE LOST CONTACT WITH OUR BIRD.

OF THAT DRONE, IF WE'D HAD AN ARMED VERSION

WE COULD HAVE OBLITERATED WITH A HELLFIRE MISSILE THE WHOLE GROUP THEY SCRAMBLED THE MIGS. AND BEEN OUT OF THERE BEFORE TO A $3 MILLION PRODUCT. THAT'S A $7 MILLION ADDITION BUT BIN LADIN WOULD BE DEAD. THAT'S TRUE, IT'S WORTH IT, GEORGE. THAT IT WILL SUCCEED, BUT WE NEED TECHNICAL PROOF HOW MANY MORE TESTS THAT IT'S PRECISE. ARE WE TALKING ABOUT? AND TRIAL MISSIONS AS MANY AS WE NEED. WE HAD HIM. (HORSE WHINNYING) (MEN AND WOMEN SHOUTING IN ARABIC) (CAMELS BRAYING)

SEE, YOUR ENEMIES WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE A FLYOVER. NOT AT ALL. NOT AT ALL? NOT AT ALL. NOT HEAR IT NOR SEE IT. (SPEAKS IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE) (BRAYS) (MASSOUD) YOUR MISSILES, YOUR TECHNOLOGY, IT'S ALL VERY IMPRESSIVE. IF YOU NEVER USE IT? BUT WHAT USE WELL, WE INTEND TO USE IT. TOO LATE FOR US. WHEN, NEXT YEAR? WHAT THEN? AND WHEN YOU KILL BIN LADIN, TO REMAIN IN POWER? WILL YOU ALLOW THE TALIBAN WELL, THAT'S A POLITICAL QUESTION. I CAN'T ANSWER THAT.

I DON'T NEED MISSILES

OR FANCY PICTURES OF MISSILES. HELICOPTERS, TANKS. I NEED MORTARS, TRUCKS, I NEED EVERYTHING. SEND IT. JUST WHAT I PROMISED. I'M SENDING CASH AND LIGHT ARMS, NOTHING SERIOUS. ALL YOU SEND IS TRINKETS, ALL RIGHT, I HEAR YOU. WHEN I FOUGHT THE SOVIETS, I ASKED FOR, AND I USED IT, KIRK. THE CIA SENT EVERYTHING THEY DIDN'T FIGHT. NOT USAMA, NOT HIS FOLLOWERS-- THEY JUST HAD THEIR PICTURES TAKEN THAT I DESTROYED, NEXT TO THE TANKS THAT THEY DEFEATED THE RUSSIANS, AND THEN THEY TOLD THE WHOLE WORLD BUT THAT WAS REAGAN. HE UNDERSTOOD. AND AMERICA DID HELP, COMMON ENEMY NOW. WE HAVE A DIFFERENT HE HAS MONEY AND OUTSIDE SUPPORT. I DON'T. GO CONVINCE THEM, KIRK. TELL THEM I CAN WIN THIS WAR AND RID AFGHANISTAN OF THESE INTRUDERS FOREVER, BUT THEY HAVE TO SEND ME WHAT I NEED, AND ONLY I KNOW WHAT I NEED. OKAY. BEG THEM, KIRK. BEG THEM TO TRUST ME. I WILL.

TELL ME.

(POLICE SIREN WAILING) WHEN THE MIAMI POLICE CONTACTED YOU, WHAT DID THEY SAY? JUST THAT THEY'D FOUND THE LOST BRIEFCASE, AND I COULD CLAIM IT. WHEN I GOT THERE, EVERYTHING WAS INSIDE EXCEPT A CIGAR CUTTER AND A LIGHTER. ALL CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS WERE INTACT? THE POLICE REPORT CLASSIFIED IT AS A PETTY THEFT. THE PAPERS WERE PROCESSED FOR PRINTS. THEY WEREN'T HANDLED BY ANYBODY EXCEPT SPECIAL AGENT O'NEILL. AS FAR AS MIAMI P.D. IS CONCERNED, CASE CLOSED. NOT AS FAR AS THE FBI IS CONCERNED. OUR FOCUS IS ON THE FACT, AND I KNOW YOUR CLIENT'S WELL AWARE OF THIS, THAT PAPERS IN HIS BRIEFCASE WERE CLASSIFIED. AGENTS ARE FORBIDDEN BY FEDERAL LAW FROM REMOVING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION FROM ANY FBI FACILITY. GOOD MORNING. GOOD MORNING. I, UH, WANTED TO DISCUSS WITH YOU, DICK, A SERIES OF N.S.C. CHANGES THAT I'M CONSIDERING. GOOD. THERE'S BEEN A DRAMATIC SPIKE IN INTELLIGENCE FROM BOTH THE N.S.C. AND THE CIA SAYING SOMETHING SPECTACULAR IS GOING TO HAPPEN INVOLVING AMERICAN TARGETS. I RECOGNIZE THAT. WE ALL DO, AND WE'RE ON IT. TRUST ME, PRESIDENT BUSH HAS BEEN MEETING REGULARLY WITH THE D.C.I. WE'RE NOT MOVING FAST ENOUGH. I WANT TO BRIEF THE PRESIDENT ON COUNTERTERRORISM, MEET WITH THE PRINCIPALS. WE NEED TO ACT ON THIS PREDATOR TECHNOLOGY, KILL BIN LADIN AND HIS DEPUTIES AND DEVISE A ROLLING ACTION AGAINST THE TALIBAN. LOOK, EITHER AL-QAEDA IS A THREAT WORTH ACTING AGAINST, OR IT IS NOT. SIR, ALL THOSE PAPERS PERTAINED TO CASES I WAS WORKING ON FOR THE BUREAU. NO PAPERS WERE STOLEN, NO SECRETS REVEALED. ALL THE FACTS ARE KNOWN. THE PANEL WILL RECOMMEND A FULL INTERNAL INVESTIGATION BY THE OFFICE FOR PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY. LOOK, THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR WEEKS

AND FRANKLY, I AM TIRED OF IT. GIVE ME MY PUNISHMENT, AND LET'S GET ON WITH THE HUNT FOR THE BAD GUYS, BUT SPARE ME THE DEATH OF A THOUSAND CUTS. I'M DOING A RESTRUCTURING, WHICH IS WHY I ASKED TO SEE YOU. I'VE DECIDED THAT YOUR POSITION AS NATIONAL COORDINATOR OF COUNTERTERRORISM WILL BE REDEFINED. YOU'LL NO LONGER BE INCLUDED ON THE PRINCIPALS COMMITTEE. THAT'S NOT A GOOD IDEA. I WANT YOU TO STAY ON, KEEP YOUR STAFF IN PLACE, BUT I WANT YOU TO FOCUS ON OTHER FOREIGN POLICY SECURITY CONCERNS. I'M CONCERNED ABOUT CYBER SECURITY. I BELIEVE IT'S A SERIOUS ISSUE. GOOD. WELL, WE'LL TRANSITION YOU BY OCTOBER. THIS ISN'T A DEMOTION, DICK. IT'S-- IT'S A RESTRUCTURING.

WELL, TENET'S CONVINCED OF THE INTELLIGENCE THAT AL-QAEDA'S GOING TO ATTACK U.S. TARGETS SOON. WHAT ARE YOUR PEOPLE TELLING YOU? SUSPECTS I.D.'ED BY CIA AT A TERROR CONFERENCE IN MALAYSIA MAY BE IN THIS COUNTRY. THE FACT IS, WE DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY ARE, AND WE DON'T KNOW THEIR NAMES. BUT INSTEAD OF CHASING THEM DOWN, I'M THE ONE WHO'S HERE ANSWERING QUESTIONS ABOUT A MISSING BRIEFCASE, WHICH ISN'T EVEN MISSING. (CHUCKLES) I'M THE BAD GUY. THANK YOU. I'M CONSIDERING GETTING OUT, DICK. WHAT DO YOU MEAN? THE BRIEFCASE DEAL. THAT SHUT ME DOWN. AND DESPITE ALL THE RED FLAGS, NO ONE'S TAKING TERRORISM SERIOUSLY. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS RULES THE DAY. YEAH. YOU SURE ABOUT THIS? I'VE GIVEN MY LIFE TO THE BUREAU. EVERYTHING ELSE CAME SECOND. I BELIEVE MY COUNTRY TO BE IN DANGER, AND I'VE SPIT BLOOD TO HELP TRY AND KEEP IT SAFE. AND WE'RE NOT SAFE YET, AND NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE. YEAH. SO, UM, MR. ATTA, YOU WANT $650,000

TO PURCHASE A TWIN-ENGINE, 6-PASSENGER CROP DUSTER? CORRECT. YOU KNOW, THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE DOES GRANT INDIVIDUAL LOANS, BUT NOT FOR THE PURCHASE OF CROP-DUSTER PLANES. YOU MIGHT HAVE BETTER LUCK AT A COMMERCIAL BANK. THIS IS WASHINGTON, D.C., YES? MM-HMM. CAN I HAVE THIS PHOTO? WELL, THAT'S KIND OF A KEEPSAKE OF MINE. IT REMINDS ME OF WHERE I USED TO WORK. I HAVE FRIENDS BACK THERE. (TELEPHONE RINGS) EXCUSE ME. HELLO. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF SOMEBODY FLEW AN AIRPLANE INTO YOUR FRIENDS' BUILDING? WELL, WELL, WELL, LOOK WHO'S HERE. JIM FIELDING. DID YOU CHECK YOUR CLOAK AND DAGGER AT THE DOOR? EVERYONE'S TALKING COOPERATION BETWEEN THE BUREAU AND THE CIA. THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE. GOOD. GOOD TO SEE YOU. AND YOU. WHAT HAVE YOU GOT? PHOTOS. SOME OF THESE GUYS ARE FROM THE YEMEN ATTACK OF THE "COLE,"

BUT THERE ARE QUITE A FEW OTHERS THERE THAT WE'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE, AND THEY'RE NOT SHARING. ARE THESE FROM KUALA LUMPUR? THAT MEETING WAS NEARLY A YEAR AND A HALF AGO. WHY ARE WE JUST GETTING A LOOK AT THIS STUFF NOW? DO YOU KNOW THE NAMES OF THESE OTHER PEOPLE? THESE GUYS.

HIM? I DON'T HAVE CLEARANCE TO SHARE THAT INFORMATION. (LAUGHS) JIM, WHAT KIND OF GAME ARE YOU GUYS PLAYING? YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. YOU'RE ASKING THE J.T.T.F. TO I.D. SUSPECTS, BUT YOU DON'T GIVE US ANYTHING? COME ON, COME ON! FOR GOD'S SAKE! I'VE GOT NAMES AND I.D.'S OF SAUDI NATIONALS REQUESTING ENTRY VISAS. I.N.S. IS STREAMING 'EM THROUGH, AND I NEED INTEL! HOW ARE WE GONNA STOP THESE PEOPLE FROM GETTING IN IF WE DON'T KNOW WHO THE HELL THEY ARE? KEEP THESE. YOU GOT IT. IT'S CLASSIFIED MATERIAL, JOHN. ARE YOU GOING TO SHARE? NOT MY DECISION TO MAKE, AND I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHING ELSE. I'M NOT GONNA LEAVE IT HERE SO SOME SPECIAL AGENT CAN LEAVE IT IN THEIR BRIEFCASE SOMEWHERE. IT'S ALL RIGHT. I HAVE ANOTHER ONE. I'M GONNA GO GET IT, AND I'M GONNA COME BACK AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS. LAME-ASS.

HERE, HAVE A GLASS OF WATER. YOU LOOK LIKE YOU COULD USE ONE.

HEY, LOU. THEY WON'T LET US KEEP THE PHOTOS.

GREAT. AND FOR ALL WE KNOW, THOSE SUSPECTS ALL HAVE VISAS AND ARE ALREADY IN-COUNTRY PLANNING ATTACKS. THEY'RE PROBABLY RIGHT DOWN THE BLOCK IN THE BASEMENT MAKING BOMBS. AND THE GROUND TRANSPORTATION BOOTHS ARE OUTSIDE THE TERMINALS IN FRONT OF THE BAGGAGE CLAIM AREA. (MAN SPEAKING IN SPANISH)

THOSE ARE BASIC QUESTIONS. (SPEAKING ARABIC) JOSE, CAN I TALK TO YOU FOR A MINUTE? (SHOUTING IN ARABIC) (SPEAKS ARABIC) THIS GUY'S A SAUDI. WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE NICE TO THEM. THIS GUY IS A HIT MAN.

AND COMMUNICATING WITH AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL. WHAT ARE YOU GETTING AT? IT JUST DOESN'T MAKE SENSE, YOU KNOW? WHAT DOESN'T? THIS GUY WAS AT A FLIGHT SCHOOL IN NORMAN, OKLAHOMA. YEAH. THEY GROUNDED HIM. SAID HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING, AND HE KEPT ASKING WEIRD QUESTIONS, LIKE HOW TO GET INTO THE COCKPIT OF A 747. SO ONCE HE'S GROUNDED, HE RUSHES UP HERE LIKE HE'S GOT SOME DEADLINE TO MEET OR SOMETHING. PAYS UP FRONT IN CASH, RIGHT? WELL, HE MADE A DEPOSIT BY CREDIT CARD IN EARLY JULY. WHEN HE CAME IN, I ASKED HIM FOR THE BALANCE--$6,800. HANG ON. SO THIS CAT'S A TERRORIST? A HIJACKER COULD DO A LOT OF DAMAGE FLYING A 747 FULL OF FUEL. BECAUSE HE'S MIDDLE EASTERN.

WHAT ARE THOSE FOR? YOU PLAY HOCKEY? AM I UNDER ARREST? YOUR VISA EXPIRED ON MAY 22ND, MR. MOUSSAOUI. AND YOU FAILED TO RENEW IT OR GET ANOTHER ONE. HEY, NICK. (COUGHS) (NICK) YEAH? THIS IS AHMAL, THE ROOMMATE. HE SAYS MOUSSAOUI HERE SAYS IT'S COOL TO KILL CIVILIANS IN THE NAME OF ISLAM. HE'S CRAZY. I WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM. TAKE HIM AWAY, PLEASE. COLLEEN SAYS HE'S GOT 32 GRAND IN THE BANK. AND WHEN SHE ASKED HIM WHAT HE DOES, HE SAYS "MARKETING CONSULTANT" FOR A COMPUTER COMPANY. NO, HE HAS NO JOB, OKAY? NOTHING, NOTHING AT ALL. HE CAN'T PROVIDE THE NAME OF AN EMPLOYER OR A COPY OF A PAYCHECK. THANK YOU, AHMAL. SO WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?

HOLD HIM ON AN EXPIRED VISA. I GUESS THAT'S ALL I CAN DO.

BUT IF YOU WANT A PROFESSIONAL OPINION, THIS GUY REEKS. THERE'S NOTHING HERE EXCEPT BAD NEWS. YEAH, OKAY. WELL, PLAY ALONG WITH ME HERE.

OKAY, MR. MOUSSAOUI, RIGHT NOW WE'RE HOLDING YOU ON A VISA VIOLATION, AND YOU'LL BE BOOKED ACCORDINGLY. YOU'LL BE ALLOWED AN ATTORNEY, PROBABLY GET A COURT DATE. WITH BAIL, YOU'LL BE OUT SOON. WE ARE GONNA NEED TO GO THROUGH YOUR LAPTOP AND PULL A FEW OTHER ITEMS FOR INSPECTION.

IS THAT ALL RIGHT WITH YOU? YOU DO NOT HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO DO THIS. I HAVE RIGHTS. THAT'S WHY WE'RE ASKING YOU, SIR. MY ANSWER IS NO. SIR, STAND UP. SIR, PLEASE STAND UP. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT. IF YOU GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT, ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU IN A COURT OF LAW.

Roasted in France for a dark, COLLEEN, YOU'VE GOT TO GET INTO THAT LAPTOP. WHAT'S WASHINGTON SAYING? BUT RESISTANCE FROM WASHINGTON. BUT RESISTANCE FROM WASHINGTON. I GOT OFF THE PHONE TWO HOURS AGO WITH FRENCH INTELLIGENCE. THEY HAVE GOT A HUGE FILE ON THIS GUY. TRIPS TO PAKISTAN, TO AFGHANISTAN IN '99, TIES WITH ISLAMIC RADICAL GROUPS, RECRUITED PEOPLE TO FIGHT IN CHECHNYA. HE IS ON WATCH LISTS THROUGHOUT EUROPE. WHAT DID THE HIGHER-UPS SAY ABOUT THAT? IT DOESN'T PROVE THAT HE'S A TERRORIST. RIGHT. WHICH IS WHY YOU'VE GOT TO GET INTO THAT LAPTOP. MOUSSAOUI'S VERY UPTIGHT ABOUT THAT COMPUTER. THIS GUY IS DIRTY, JOHN. YOU'VE GOT TO PUT IN A FISA REQUEST. THIS WARRANTS IT IF ANYTHING DOES, SEE IF THE COURT WILL GRANT IT. OH, GOD. IT'S YOUR ONLY OPTION. YOU'RE AN ATTORNEY. YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. I WISH I COULD HELP YOU, BUT I'M OUT OF HERE. I'M VERY SORRY TO HEAR THAT. LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS UP TILL THE LAST MINUTE, COLLEEN. I WILL. OKAY, YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. BYE, BABE. (CHUCKLES) INCREDIBLE. IT'S LIKE USAMA BIN LADIN'S GOT A MOLE IN THE FBI. COME ON, JOHN. YOU CAN'T REALLY BELIEVE THAT. YEAH, HE DOESN'T NEED ONE. HE'S GOT US.

I DON'T SEE THE AL-QAEDA CONNECTION. (COLLEEN) IT'S THERE. IT'S DETAILED. THE TRIPS TO AFGHANISTAN, CHECHNYA. THE FRENCH HAVE BEEN TAILING THIS GUY SINCE '95. THEY CLAIM HE'S AL-QAEDA ALL THE WAY. WASHINGTON SAYS THE CHECHEN GROUPS ARE SEPARATE FROM A.Q. THEY'RE LINKED.

BIN LADIN IS THEIR BIGGEST FINANCIER. THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

YOU HAVE TO PROVE MOUSSAOUI'S AN AGENT OF A FOREIGN POWER. WITHOUT THAT, YOU CAN'T GO FORWARD. WE NEED TO LOOK INSIDE HIS COMPUTER. THAT'S ALL THIS IS ABOUT. I UNDERSTAND. BUT THERE'S NOTHING THERE TO JUSTIFY A FISA REQUEST. IN THE RAMZI YOUSEF CASE THE LAPTOP REVEALED THE BOJINKA PLOT INTENDED TO DESTROY A DOZEN AIRLINERS IN ONE DAY, WHICH WE BROKE UP. LAST DECEMBER THE JORDANIANS CAPTURED A LAPTOP THAT WE USED TO DEFEND AGAINST THE MILLENNIUM PLOTS. WE NEED TO GET A LOOK INSIDE MOUSSAOUI'S COMPUTER. YOU CAN'T. LOOK, THIS IS NOT COMPLICATED! WE ARE TRYING TO STOP A GUY WHO'S BEEN TAKING FLIGHT TRAINING, WHO'S ASSOCIATED WITH RADICAL ISLAMIC GROUPS. I APPRECIATE YOU DOING YOUR JOBS, BUT I HAVE TO DO MINE.

THANK YOU. (CHOKES BACK TEARS) (BELL DINGS) MY MESSAGE FOR PRESIDENT BUSH IS THIS. IF HE'S NOT INTERESTED IN PEACE IN AFGHANISTAN, IF HE DOESN'T HELP THE AFGHAN PEOPLE TO ARRIVE AT THEIR OBJECTIVE OF PEACE, THEN AMERICA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD WILL HAVE TO FACE THE PROBLEM OF THE TALIBAN AND USAMA BIN LADIN'S AL-QAEDA THEMSELVES. THANK YOU.

COLIN POWELL HAVE PROMISED $43 MILLION, WHICH FOLLOWS $113 MILLION ALREADY GIVEN BY CLINTON'S PEOPLE. THEY CALL IT FARM SUBSIDIES AND HUMANITARIAN AID. DO YOU KNOW WHO THIS MONEY'S GOING TO? YES. IT'S NOT COMING TO ME OR THE NORTHERN ALLIANCE. IT'S GOING TO MY ENEMY THE TALIBAN! I UNDERSTAND, GENERAL. DO YOU KNOW WHO WILL CONTROL THAT MONEY? BIN LADIN HIMSELF. HE IS THE POWER IN AFGHANISTAN, NOT MULLAH OMAR! IF IT WERE UP TO ME, THAT MONEY WOULD GO TO YOU, ALL OF IT, BUT IT'S NOT UP TO ME. THEY'RE PLANNING SOMETHING, A TERRORISM BEYOND COMPREHENSION. CAN YOU GIVE ME SPECIFICS, GENERAL? I CAN TELL YOU THAT IT WON'T BE IN YEMEN OR AFRICA. YOU KNOW WHERE IT WILL BE. YOU KNOW. LOOK, I DON'T TELL YOU THIS BECAUSE I'M LOSING MEN OR A CIVIL WAR TO THESE BRIGANDS. I TELL YOU THIS BECAUSE I FEAR FOR YOU, MY FRIEND. I KNOW YOU DO.

(HELICOPTER WHIRRING) Hello again. More pressure on the ACT to toughen up anti-terror laws...on the fifth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks. The PM joined the US Ambassador at a service at the embassy in Yarralumla this morning. And Opposition Leader Bill Stefaniak says it's a timely reminder of why our laws need to be brought in line with the other states. Criticism over another attempt to fix hospital waiting lists. Health Minister Katy Gallagher launched a new plan. But the Opposition claims it'll do nothing to fix our hospitals. A recent report found too many people wait too long for help at Canberra and Calvary Hospitals. Claims there'll be chaos at public schools next year ...if the teacher's dispute isn't resolved. The Save our School group's demanded the ACT Government fix the problem. Teachers are expected to formally reject the latest 10.8 percent pay rise offer this week. And the Raiders have been bungled out of the NRL finals. They went down to the Bulldogs 30 points to 12. Enjoy the rest of your evening. Thanks to Zyrtec, allergy days can get turned around fast.

OKAY. BIN LADIN IS CALLING HIS PEOPLE BACK TO AFGHANISTAN, ORDERING THEM BACK TO RETURN IN EARLY SEPTEMBER. THEY'RE MOVING THEIR TRAINING BASES DEEPER INTO THE MOUNTAINS, SHORING UP DEFENSES. FOR WHAT PURPOSE, GENERAL? CAN YOU TELL ME WHY? THEY INTEND TO EXECUTE AN OPERATION INSIDE AMERICA. IT INVOLVES AVIATION, HIJACKINGS, PERHAPS FOR RANSOM, PERHAPS TO RELEASE RAMZI YOUSEF OR THE BLIND SHEIKH. THAT IS ALL WE KNOW, BUT IT IS INTENDED TO BE SPECTACULAR. THEY EXPECT SOME KIND OF REACTION OR ATTACK. THAT IS WHY THEY'RE MOVING THEIR CAMPS. THIS IS GOOD TO KNOW, GENERAL. THANK YOU. AMERICA MUST PREPARE. TELL THEM, KIRK. I WILL. I WILL, GENERAL.

THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH FOR YOU TO AT LEAST WARN THE AIRLINES. AND START A PANIC? NO. GIVE ME SPECIFICS, OKAY? GET ME SPECIFICS. GOOD MORNING, GENTLEMEN. AS A RESULT OF THE AUGUST 6TH PRESIDENTIAL DAILY BRIEFING, THE PRESIDENT IS TIRED OF SWATTING FLIES. HE BELIEVES AL-QAEDA IS A REAL THREAT, AND HE WANTS TO CONSIDER REAL ACTION. HE SPECIFICALLY ASKED ABOUT THE ARMED PREDATOR. WHERE ARE WE WITH THAT? IS IT ACTIONABLE? WELL, FOR RECONNAISSANCE, YES, BUT THE HELLFIRE MISSILE CURRENTLY BEING TESTED IS NOT READY FOR USE AGAINST ANY ATTEMPT ON BIN LADIN OR ANYONE ELSE, IF THAT'S WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS PROPOSING, SOMETHING WHOSE LEGALITY IS STILL IN QUESTION. THE DEPUTY'S COMMITTEE HAS CONCLUDED, AS DID THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION,

THAT IT IS LEGAL FOR THE CIA TO KILL BIN LADIN. MY PEOPLE SAY DIFFERENT. I, NOR ANYONE ELSE AT MY AGENCY, ACCORDING TO COUNSEL, IS AUTHORIZED TO PULL THE TRIGGER ON ANY SUCH ATTEMPT. EVEN IF ORDERED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? BOY, I GOTTA TELL YOU, GEORGE, THE CIA IS BECOMING MASTERFUL AT PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR. DID YOU HEAR AN ORDER? LOOK, DR. RICE,

THE REAL QUESTION BEFORE YOU, THE PRINCIPALS COMMITTEE, AND THE PRESIDENT IS ARE WE SERIOUS ABOUT DEALING WITH THE AL-QAEDA THREAT? IS AL-QAEDA A BIG DEAL? WE HAVE TO IMAGINE OURSELVES ON A FUTURE DAY WHEN WE HAVE FAILED TO ACT AND HUNDREDS OF AMERICANS LAY DEAD. WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING NOW. I CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME UNDERSTAND WHY WE CONTINUE TO ALLOW THE EXISTENCE OF LARGE-SCALE AL-QAEDA BASES WHERE WE KNOW PEOPLE ARE BEING TRAINED TO KILL AMERICANS!

JIM, I NEED YOU! TOWER ONE! (MAN) UNDERNEATH THE PORTICO! BACK THERE, HALT. TURN RIGHT. GO! (MAN) IT'S NOT ENOUGH JUST TO GET OUT OF THE BUILDING. (VOICES OVERLAPPING INDISTINCTLY) (RUMBLING) (SIRENS WAILING) (RICHARD CLARKE) MR. VICE PRESIDENT, DR. RICE? ARE YOU GOING TO EVACUATE THE WHITE HOUSE? NO, WE'RE A COUPLE OF MINUTES OUT. LISTEN TO ME. WE'RE GONNA NEED TO GET EVERYONE TOGETHER! I JUST TRIED TO GET NEAR THE TOWERS, BUT FOR OBVIOUS REASONS, IT'S BLOCKED OFF. AND NOW WITH THE SECOND TOWER BEING HIT, WHATEVER WE THOUGHT THIS WAS, WE NOW KNOW WHAT THIS IS. THIS IS A TERRORIST ATTACK. (MAN ON TV) ...A SECOND PLANE CRASH. IT APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN DELIBERATELY FLOWN DIRECTLY INTO THE TOWERS. (WOMAN ON TV) WE HAVE JUST WITNESS ANOTHER-- A SECOND EXPLOSION. THIS ONE HIT THE OTHER TOWER AND NEAR AS I CAN TELL... (MAN) THAT WOULD SUGGEST... I'M ASSUMING HERE... (TELEPHONES RINGING) I'M ASSUMING HERE THERE ARE QUITE A LARGE NUMBER OF STOREYS ABOVE THAT SECOND EXPLOSION. (WOMAN) ...THAT WOULD INDICATE UNTOLD NUMBERS OF OFFICES THAT ARE ABOVE THE DAMAGE WHO MAY BE TRAPPED OR UNABLE TO EVACUATE. UH, WE'RE GONNA... MR. VICE PRESIDENT...

HAVE YOU SPOKEN TO THE PRESIDENT? ONLY AFTER THE FIRST PLANE HIT. UH, DICK CLARKE'S ON HIS WAY. HE JUST CALLED. (WOMAN OVER 2-WAY RADIO) ENGINE 228. (SIRENS WAILING, HORNS HONKING) EXCUSE ME. (MAN) THE EXPLOSION WOULD INDICATE AN ONGOING... MR. VICE PRESIDENT. THIS IS AL-QAEDA, DICK, AS I'M SURE YOU'RE AWARE. THEY MAKE SIMULTANEOUS ATTACKS. THIS MAY NOT BE OVER. WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND? YOU WANT ME TO HANDLE THIS? YOU'RE THE CRISIS MANAGER, DICK. MAKE A RECOMMENDATION. A SECURE TELECONFERENCE, EVERYBODY ON THE PHONE. MR. VICE PRESIDENT, AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT NUMBER 77'S BEEN HIJACKED, SIR, AND IT'S HEADING TOWARDS RESTRICTED AIRSPACE HERE IN WASHINGTON. MY GOD. SIR, MY ORDERS ARE TO EVACUATE YOU IMMEDIATELY. (MAN) WHAT IS THE EXACT EXTENT OF THE DAMAGE? WHAT ARE THESE EXPLOSIONS? WHAT EXACTLY, (WHISTLE BLOWS) (SIRENS WAILING) (DOOR CREAKS) (MAN) ...SO FAR TO GET HARD FACTS, ANY DETAILS ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW. (CLARKE) WE'VE GOT TWO THINGS COMING IN HERE. YEAH, YEAH. WE'VE GOT BOTH THESE MONITORS. RIGHT HERE. CAN I HAVE THAT, PLEASE? ALL RIGHT, YEAH. ALL RIGHT, HANG ON, HANG ON. PLEASE TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW, JANE, WHAT F.A.A. IS TELLING YOU. THE, UH, TWO AIRCRAFT THAT WENT INTO THE WTC WERE AMERICAN FLIGHT 11, A 767,

AND UNITED 175, ALSO A 767, UM, HIJACKED. WE'VE PUT A HOLD ON ALL TAKEOFFS AND LANDINGS IN NEW YORK AND WASHINGTON. (MAN) UNITED 93, CHECK-IN 3-5-0. VERIFY 3-5-0. (RUMBLING) UNITED 93, THIS IS CLEVELAND CENTER. VERIFY YOUR LEVEL. UNITED 93, VERIFY YOUR LEVEL. THIS IS CLEVELAND CENTER. UNITED 93, CHECK-IN 3-5-0. VERIFY 3-5-0. UNITED 93, CLEVELAND. SAY AGAIN. THIS IS CLEVELAND CENTER.

UNITED 93, CLEVELAND CENTER CALLING.

UNITED 93, CLEVELAND CENTER. DO YOU READ? UNFORTUNATELY, WE'LL BE GOING BACK TO... UNITED 93, NINER-THREE, DO YOU HEAR CLEVELAND CENTER? (GEORGE BUSH) ...AND THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR WILL TAKE THE PODIUM AND DISCUSS EDUCATION. TODAY WE'VE HAD A NATIONAL TRAGEDY. TWO AIRPLANES HAVE CRASHED INTO THE WORLD TRADE CENTER IN AN APPARENT TERRORIST ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY. I HAVE SPOKEN TO THE VICE PRESIDENT, TO THE GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK, TO THE DIRECTOR OF THE FBI, AND I'VE ORDERED THAT THE FULL RESOURCES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GO TO HELP THE VICTIMS. (MAN ON TV) ...THE TARGET OF AN ATTACK. WE DON'T YET KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TYPE OR SIZE OF AIRCRAFT

ARE INVOLVED, BUT THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THIS WAS DELIBERATE, IT WAS INTENTIONAL.

(TELEPHONE RINGS) (RING) HELLO? (MAN) DEENA, DEENA, HONEY. TOM? I'M ON UNITED AIRLINES 93 FROM NEWARK TO SAN FRANCISCO. THE PLANE HAS BEEN HIJACKED. WE'RE IN THE AIR. ONE GUY KNIFED A GUY, AND THEY'RE SAYING THEY'VE GOT A BOMB ON BOARD. PLEASE CALL THE AUTHORITIES. (CLICKING) TOM? OH, MY GOD. WHAT IS THIS PLANE DOING? WHAT IS THIS GUY DOING? (ALARMS BLARING) (WOMAN) UP AND DOWN, CLIMBING AND DESCENDING, ERRATIC. TERRORISM AGAINST OUR NATION WILL NOT STAND. AND NOW IF YOU JOIN ME IN A MOMENT OF SILENCE...

UH, YES, MY HUSBAND JUST, JUST CALLED ME FROM FLIGHT UNITED 93, AND, UH, HIS PLANE'S BEEN HIJACKED. (RUMBLING AND SHAKING) MAY GOD BLESS THE VICTIMS, THEIR FAMILIES AND AMERICA. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WHAT FLIGHT IS IT? UNITED 93. SEE IF YOU CAN RAISE 'EM. UNITED 93, THIS IS CLEVELAND CENTER. DO YOU READ? UNITED 93, ARE YOU THERE? UNITED 93, THIS IS CLEVELAND CENTER. UNITED 93, DO YOU READ? WE HAVE REPORTS OF 11 OTHER AIRCRAFT EITHER OFF COURSE OR OUT OF COMMUNICATION. 11? WE NEED A NATIONAL GROUND-STOP, ALL PLANES. IT'S BEEN DONE. ONE FLIGHT THAT HAS US, UH, WORRIED IS WASHINGTON-BOUND AMERICAN 77. THE TRANSPONDER'S BEEN TURNED OFF, AND WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE IT'S REALLY HEADED. ALL RIGHT, GENERAL, TELL ME ABOUT THE SCRAMBLED FIGHTERS. ARE THEY WITHIN RANGE OF WASHINGTON? UM...

(MAN WHISPERS) THIS NEEDS TO BE SIGNED.

THE CLOSEST PLANES ARE THE SELFRIDGE AIR BASE

NEAR DETROIT. I DON'T SEE THEM MAKING IT HERE IN LESS THAN 15 MINUTES OR SO. ALL RIGHT, I THINK WE NEED TO CONSIDER AUTHORIZING THE AIR FORCE TO SHOOT DOWN ANY AIRCRAFT, INCLUDING A HIJACKED PASSENGER FLIGHT, THAT'S THREATENING TO ATTACK AND CAUSE LARGE-SCALE DEATH ON THE GROUND. ALSO, THE PRESIDENT NEEDS TO GET OFF HIS ITINERARY. I DON'T RECOMMEND THAT HE COME BACK HERE EITHER.

IT'S BEST THAT CONTACT US IN "AIR FORCE ONE." SECRET SERVICE CONCURS. ANY SHOOT-DOWN AUTHORITY HAS TO COME FROM THE PRESIDENT. MEANWHILE, WE'VE GOT A PLANE HEADED FOR WASHINGTON. WE HAVE GOT TO DO SOMETHING. GENERAL, WE NEED TO KNOW WHERE THOSE FIGHTERS ARE AND BE ABLE TO CONTACT THEM. WE'VE GOT TO GET THE PRESIDENT IN ON THIS CALL. NO, MY HUSBAND'S NOT ON EITHER OF THE PLANES THAT WENT INTO THE TRADE CENTER. HE'S ON UNITED 93. NO, I JUST-- I SPOKE TO HIM A FEW MINUTES AGO. (CALL WAITING BEEPS) HOLD ON, THAT'S HIM. THAT'S HIM! TOM? THEY'RE IN THE COCKPIT. HONEY, THERE HAVE BEEN OTHER ATTACKS. TWO PLANES WERE FLOWN DELIBERATELY INTO THE WORLD TRADE CENTER. THERE'S A POLICEMAN HERE, MOMMY.

WE'VE JUST RECEIVED WORD IN THE STUDIO THAT A LARGE PLANE, PERHAPS ONE OF THE OTHERS REPORTED MISSING, HAS CRASHED INTO THE PENTAGON IN WASHINGTON WHERE REPORTER JOHN OLETA IS ON-SCENE.

(MAN) I NEED TO KNOW WHERE I'M SCRAMBLING THESE GUYS TO. I NEED A DIRECTION, DESTINATION. HUNTRESS, BE ADVISED WE ARE NOW PICKING UP HEAVY SMOKE 2-6-0

FOR 80 BACK OVER MANHATTAN. WHAT ARE MY ORDERS? YOU ARE TO ESTABLISH COMBAT AIR PATROL OVER MANHATTAN. HUNTRESS, PLEASE ADVISE. DO WE HAVE SHOOT-DOWN AUTHORITY? DO YOU KNOW THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT? STAND BY. SIR, THE FIGHTERS ARE UP, BUT THEY-- THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT TO DO. SIR, IT MAY REQUIRE EXTREME MEASURES.

(MAN ON TV) ...BECAUSE OF THE WARNING OF IMMINENT... WHERE'S DON RUMSFELD? (MAN) WAS THAT AMERICAN 77 OR UNITED 93 THAT JUST HIT THE PENTAGON? I'VE STILL GOT 93 ON MY SCREEN, UH, ABOUT 20 MINUTES OUT OF WASHINGTON. IF THAT PLANE'S HEADED FOR WASHINGTON, IT COULD BE SERIOUS. I KNOW, I KNOW. A WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE JUST LEFT THE ROOM. UH, THEY'RE MAKING PHONE CALLS. THE PRESIDENT HAS JUST GIVEN THE SHOOT-DOWN ORDER. (TELEPHONE RINGS) (MAN ON TV) SOME OFFICERS HERE AT THE PENTAGON REPORTED... TOM, ARE YOU OKAY? NO, I'M NOT. THEY JUST HIT THE PENTAGON. I THOUGHT IT WAS YOUR FLIGHT. IT LOOKS LIKE THEY'RE TAKING PLANES AND HITTING DESIGNATED TARGETS UP AND DOWN THE EAST COAST. (CHILDREN LAUGH) HOW MANY ARE INVOLVED? I DON'T KNOW. THREE HAVE ALREADY CRASHED. THEY'RE SPECULATING TWO MORE HAVE BEEN HIJACKED. I ALREADY CALLED THE AUTHORITIES. THEY DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT YOUR PLANE UNTIL I CALLED. (THINKING) HAIL MARY, MOTHER OF CHRIST... (VOICE ECHOING) HAIL MARY, MOTHER OF CHRIST... OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME. THY KINGDOM COME... PROTECT THEM WELL. SAVE THEIR SOULS AND KEEP THEM SAFE... PORT AUTHORITY, COME IN. DO YOU COPY? (BOOM) DO YOU COPY? (LOUD RATTLING)

PLEASE KEEP ME SAFE, LORD. PLEASE KEEP ME SAFE. (GLASS SHATTERING) PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO JUMP OFF THE BUILDING. DAMN RADIO'S NO GOOD. I'M NOT GETTING A DAMN THING! (MAN) DO NOT LET ANYBODY OUT! WE GOT BODIES FALLING FROM OFF THE BUILDING! (SHATTERING CONTINUES) MAKE SURE YOU KEEP MOVING! UNDERNEATH THE PORTICO! ...REVOLVING DOORS ONE BY ONE, AND THEY'RE COMING OUT... (CONTINUES SILENT PRAYERS) SAVE THEIR SOULS. KEEP THEM SAFE. HAIL MARY, MOTHER OF CHRIST... (PRAYERS CONTINUE INDISTINCTLY) YOU OKAY? I'M FINE. JUST HAD THE WIND KNOCKED OUT OF ME.

(RUMBLING)

(BOOMING RUMBLE)

(HIGH-PITCHED WHINE) (SHATTERING BOOMING)

HI. JOHN O'NEILL. LEAVE A MESSAGE, AND I'LL CALL YOU BACK. (HELICOPTERS APPROACH) HI. JOHN O'NEILL. AND I'LL CALL YOU BACK.

(BOOM)

(TOM) A GROUP OF US HAVE VOTED. WE'RE GONNA DO SOMETHING.

NO, SIT DOWN. BE STILL, BE QUIET AND DON'T DRAW ATTENTION TO YOURSELF. NO, DEENA. I'M A FLIGHT ATTENDANT, TOM. I KNOW THE PROCEDURE. THEY INTEND TO CRASH THE PLANE. IF WE'RE GONNA DIE, WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING. (CRYING) OKAY. PRAY, DEENA. OKAY. I LOVE YOU. I LOVE YOU.
