The minutes of 9/11

The Rotten Library, a site I highly recommend for trivial and serious information alike, has a stellar timeline on the events of September 11, 2001. It offers the known facts, minute-by-minute, a pretty remarkable feat when you think about it. The timeline is the clearest documentation I've yet seen regarding the intelligence failures of that tragic day. The page also features hard-hitting and compelling pictures, including footage of Mohammed Atta boarding a plane in Maine at 5:45 a.m., the planes crashing into the World Trade Center, Bush looking busy and damage at the Pentagon.

While you're at the library, check out some of the other great stuff. If only this had been around when I was making papers in high school...
