I know, Angel, you cannot just let this drop. It would invite to more action like it. But retaliation would also spark a problem - I do not know, I really do not know what you can do.

I feel, too, that it doesn't take a gun made of metal to hijack a plane. C4 comes to mind. All you have to do is flash it and people will be scared.

Major government installations, including Treasury and the State
Department, were also evacuated.

A senior U.S. intelligence official, speaking on the condition of
anonymity, said, ''We don't know who's doing it. Clearly, it's
terrorism related, a carefully coordinated attack. It's not the
work of an unsophisticated enemy. It's too soon to say who.''

Paul Begala, a Democratic consultant, said he witnessed an
explosion near the Pentagon.

''It was a huge fireball, a huge, orange fireball,'' Begala said in
an interview on his cell phone.

He said another witness told him a helicopter exploded. AP
reporter Dave Winslow also saw the crash. He said, ''I saw the
tail of a large airliner. ... It plowed right into the Pentagon.''

Gen. Richard Myers, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
said that prior to the crash into the Pentagon, military officials
had been notified that another hijacked plane had been heading
from the New York area to Washington. He said he assumed
that hijacked plane was the one that hit the Pentagon, though
he couldn't be sure.

Meanwhile, one of two planes that crashed into the World Trade
Center was hijacked after takeoff from Boston, a U.S. official
said, citing a transmission from the plane.

The second plane may have flown out of Newark, N.J., the official
said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Asked if there was any possibility the crashes were anything
other than deliberate, the official said it appeared not to be an
accident, the official said.

A somber Bush told an audience in Sarasota, Fla., gathered to
hear an address on education that ''this is a difficult moment for
America.'' He said he would be returning immediately to
Washington.

''Today we've had a national tragedy,'' Bush said. ''Two airplanes
have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent
terrorist attack on our country.''
