9/11 Timeline

First of all, the best and most complete 9/11 timeline has to be Paul Thompson and cohorts' amazing work at historycommons.org. I've not footnoted anything in the timeline here, in order to keep it uncluttered. That makes it useless as a serious research tool, I know. But, on the other hand, it's uncluttered. And fun to play with. And kind of pretty. And more timeliney, in the graphical sense. Anyway, I got a lot of the information from the historycommons timeline. Another source I used a lot was David Ray Griffin's 9/11 Contradictions: An Open Letter to Congress and the Press. And that's the main purpose of the timeline, to highlight contradictions, reveal stories that have changed, and examine the plausibility of the military's "oops" explanation of its (non) response that day.

So, this timeline covers only the 2.5 hours of the morning of September 11 from 8:00 to 10:30. Click on arrows. Hover over dots. Click on dots with plus signs on them. Play around. Enjoy. Then when you get annoyed at the lack of citations, go do some real research.
