I hadn't seen *any* footage at that point - I am in the UK and my normal
working day doesn't include TV sets (and of course streaming video reached
saturation and vanished long before we even knew anything was happening over
here) - and come to think of it, I *still* haven't seen any footage of the
pentagon attack. UK coverage seems limited to the second plane strike,
collapse, talking heads, rinse & repeat.....
