MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) reminds us that six people were killed when jihadists first attacked the World Trade Center 20 years ago today;
The news reader says that the attack was “unsuccessful” but if some folks died and the nation was terrorized, I’m thinking it was successful.
The victims, according to ABC News;
Four of the six killed — Robert Kirkpatrick, 61, Stephen A. Knapp, 47, William Macko, 57, and Monica Rodriguez Smith, 35 — were employees of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owned the buildings. John DiGiovanni, 45, a dental-supply salesman visiting the World Trade Center, and Wilfredo Mercado, 37, a purchasing agent for Windows on the World restaurant, also died.
