9/11 – THE ATTACK ON THE TWIN TOWERS AND PENTAGON
The New York Times
September 12, 2001
“U.S. ATTACKED” screams the famous Times headline to a shocked American populace. “HIJACKED JETS DESTROY TWIN TOWERS AND HIT PENTAGON IN DAY OF TERROR.” “President Vows to Exact Punishment for ‘Evil'” Here is the now famous New York Times issue announcing the terrorist attacks on America and including many of the most graphic photographs taken that day including a man tumbling from the Trade Center to his death to avoid the intense heat and flames that consumed the Twin Towers. The story says, in part, “The attacks seemed carefully coordinated. The hijacked planes were all en route to California, and therefore gorged with fuel, and their departures were spaced within and hour and 40 minutes.”
This highly sought-after newspaper is complete and in mint condition as issued. See the scans for just some of the photos, headlines and stories. I only have one issue at this point–they’ve become tough to locate of late.
