The networks are issuing conflicting reports about that, but it's clear it
wasn't a helipad on a nearby building. The Pentagon is apparently severely
damaged and there's been considerable loss of life. Of course that's nothing as
compared with the WTC disaster, now that both towers have collapsed. They're
saying that over 50K people work in or immediately near those two towers. There
are apparently some gas fires/explosions associated with that as well. The NY
fire department has their hands full for sure. Morever, there were many fire
fighters in the second tower evacuating people when it collapsed.

The heart of Washington D.C. OTOH is apparently being (relatively) quitely
evacuated. I don't know how the key government agencies can function if they're
not going to work, however. They've shut down the CIA, the NSA, and other
security-related agencies. You (Jeff) can probably provide more detail, since
you're there.

I note that Dubya is on the tube. I wonder where they set him down. He was in
the air when this happened. Likewise, Colin Powell apparently turned around
from his trip to Columbia, or wherever he was going.
