Bush Administration mulled using nukes after 9/11An assistant to former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder claims the Bush government ‘really played through all possibilities’ in responding to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including the use of nuclear weapons.

Germany’s Der Spiegel reported on its official website on Saturday that the United States thought about employing nuclear weapons against Afghanistan, according to Michael Steiner, who was as a political counselor to then-German Chancellor Gerhard Schroder.


Marcy Borders Was Much More Than 9/11’s ‘Dust Lady’

Karcy Borders diesWith Marcy Borders’s death from stomach cancer, aged 42, the picture is back again, of course: Borders, caked in dust on September 11, 2001, looking stunned at the camera, caught on the day that would come to define her far-too-short life.

When I see that famous image I recall meeting her nearly 10 years later, and us both standing in the living room of her apartment in Bayonne, New Jersey, looking at the dress she wore that day which she had kept unwashed. It still smelled of smoke and burning, it was still dusty, and had a soot-like film to it, a thick, claggy texture: a remnant of a terrible day that still reeked and felt of that day.

Paul LioyPaul Lioy, the scientist who analyzed dust from the fallen World Trade Center and its potential danger to first responders, died after suddenly collapsing at Newark Liberty International Airport. He was 68.

After 9/11, Lioy raced down to lower Manhattan from his home in Cranford, N.J., and collected bags of the dust. He discovered that the thick gray dust contained a dangerous mix of elements like wood, plastic, glass, asbestos and concrete.

In 2010, he published his findings in a book "Dust: The Inside Story of Its Role in the September 11th Aftermath."


After 9/11, We Were All Judith Miller

Judith MillerIf the sales of Judith Miller’s memoir are commensurate with the vituperation of the attacks on her, the royalties will mount. Her critics—they are many and loud—say the former New York Times reporter bears a responsibility for the Iraq war because the articles she wrote in the lead-up to the invasion advanced the Bush Administration’s contention that the country had weapons of mass destruction.

It’s easy to disparage Miller. Too easy. Censure her and we can sidestep looking at our own reporting, at broader disquieting questions about journalism since 9/11. As journalists, we all let our guard down in the aftermath of the worst terrorist attack on American soil. We abandoned some of the most important journalistic principles—speak truth to power; hold governments accountable; display healthy skepticism—at the base of the American flagpole. And I don’t just mean the royal we, the institutional we. I, too, am culpable.

9/11 defendantA defense lawyer for an alleged 9/11 plotter said Thursday that his Saudi captive client was rectally abused in CIA custody — and continues to bleed now, at least eight years later.

Attorney Walter Ruiz made the disclosure in open court in a bid to get a military judge to intervene in the medical care of Mustafa Hawsawi, 46, accused of helping the Sept. 11 hijackers with travel and money.
