Attack On America and Homeland Defense
|Below you will find links
to many web sites and pages where you can find more information relating
to the current declared National State of Emergency in the United States
of America due to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon,
and 4 airliners on September 11, 2001. Initially, DejaNET had decided
to stay out of this arena of bombarding the public with info on the current
national incident and the particular company feelings, regrets and sympathetic
mournings about the incident figuring there was an onslaught of info available
to all and that all media would give truthful and informative info and
links to more info on the Internet. In the beginning stages of this
incident, the major TV networks were supposed to share all info and images
relating to this incident - meaning that no matter where you turned and
whatever channel you tuned to, you would get the exact same info at the
exact same time. Somewhere along the line, and as usual, the networks
lost this innocence once again. What a surprise! Now we have
changed our minds as this country moves to a war effort which affects all
US citizens. We originally thought about adding the links and info
to the main dejanet.com page, but then decided to add a special section
which could contain more info and links and not effect the loading times
of the main page which is already very large with content. We sincerely
hope the info and links listed below will be useful to you in order to
help you find any info that you are searching for relating to this incident.
We do not intend on marketing this info in any way or any advertising on
this web page. It is now a time of people helping people and this is what
we are attempting here. We have tried to make your search easy by
providing direct links to many official news and info organizations so
that you do not have to search the Internet or other means looking for
this info. We have done the searching for you in advance. Hopefully,
this info is of some use or value to you or someone you know. If
in fact, this country does go to war (which at this time is highly likely
and may happen very soon), we will also use this same page for info and
links related to such a war. This page will be updated with more
links and info as we become aware of it. NOTE: The dates listed below
refer to the dates the info was added to this web page and may not be the
date that the info was released. The info onthis web page and the
page itself will be maintained until it is no longer informative with new
information. If you would like to help out, please see the last section
at the bottom of this web page, "WAYS YOU CAN HELP", for ways to help out
and some important info relating to how to you help you from getting screwed
over. If you would like to pass this info on to a friend, the link

There are many scams floating around the Internet and in local areas of
the country in the past few days with people soliciting funds that will
not be used for any disaster relief - they will use this money for themselves.
These people are just trying to scam a buck or two or are looking for credit
card numbers for illegal use later down the road via Internet fraud or
other methods. If you wish to make a financial donation, PLEASE BE
SURE that you are making the donation DIRECTLY to the organization that
you wish it to go to. Look at your web browser closely and see that
the true web site name appears there and that it is prepended with an https://
(which means encrypted/secure). Also, look for a notice from YOUR
browser (not the web site) or a PADLOCK SYMBOL at the top and/or bottom
of your browser window that shows you are actually on a direct and secure
server. It is very sad that we have to warn you of such things during
this time, but keep in mind, evil tends to bring out more evil. eBay
has already forbid any merchandise relating to the Pentagon or WTC on its
auctions due to the scammers that turned out within the first couple of
hours of this incident. The links shown on this web page are all
to official web sites of the respective organizations themselves.
We verified these links to be true and accurate. Also, keep in mind
that any monetary donation is tax deductible, so be sure to ask for a receipt
if you would like to use the donation as a tax write off (all legit non-profit
organizations which take donations WILL give a receipt - if not, then they
are not legit). Many other organizations such as radio stations,
TV stations, banks, and Internet Companies are also taking donations -
with these organizations, you cannot get a receipt and cannot prove the
money went were it was supposed to go. These organizations will then
use the money as a tax write off for themselves if they legitimately pass
the money on to a legit non-profit organization as a donation. The
IRS only recognizes certain non-profit organizations for tax write-off
purposes. The IRS does not recognize donations to a third party (such
as a TV station, radio station, etc.) for tax write off purposes.
This means the third party gets the write off if they really donate the
money to a non-profit organization and not you. This helps the company
you gave the money to at tax time and not you. Also, you are not
sure the money was passed on as you thought it would be. Just be
sure to get a receipt, pay directly to your charity of choice and make
sure they are legit, otherwise stick to the names of organizations that
you know well. If you are donating via the Internet, be sure you
are at the legit web site by verifying the web link on this web page or
in a search engine. There is nothing wrong with giving donations,
and there is nothing wrong with giving your credit card over the Internet,
just be sure you know what you are doing, who you are giving it to, and
where exactly your info and money is going to. There is also nothing
wrong with using a donation as a tax write off. The funds will simply
be used by whom and where you say instead of by the government's choice
of use. Essentially, you will pay the same amount of taxes either
way, its just with donations that you get to direct where the same amount
of money is used and how it is used.

10/10/2001 - LOST PHOTO / FREAKY PICTURE: Email with the subject "Amazing Picture", "WTC Picture - Kinda Freaky" - Below is the photo and the text of the email. DejaNET has decided that this photo is a fake and has been touched up by a very sick individual. PLEASE DO NOT PASS THIS EMAIL AND ITS PHOTO ON! DELETE ALL COPIES OF THIS EMAIL AND NOTIFY ANYONE YOU PASSED THIS EMAIL ON TO!
Once again, you need to be sure of the info you receive before you pass it on to others. Verify the source and try to verify any truth it may seem to have. Simply put, do not believe everything you see on the Internet.
The reasons DejaNET feels this email and photo are fake are as follows:
1). The man is standing on the observation deck which was located on World trade Center #2. World Trade Center #1 was attacked first - so therefore, no one in their right mind would have stayed on the observation deck of Tower #2 after witnessing the crash into Tower #1. Tower #1 was attacked at 8:48AM EST - Tower #2 at 9:16AM EST. No one would have been allowed to stay or to go up to the observation deck after the incident at Tower #1.
2). The man is shown with a shadow coming from his right - which means the sun would have been coming from the east since it was roughly 9:00AM EST - given this info, the plane came in from the south and crashed into the tower from the picture's view. The actual plane that crashed into Tower #2 came in from the south-east.
3). The plane shown in the picture has red, white, and blue stripes around the nose - this is the same coloring used on American Airlines airplanes. The plane that actually crashed into this tower was United Airlines (totally black or dark colored nose).
4.) The date is shown in the lower right hand corner of the photo as if it was scanned. Anyone can verify that the date images that show up on photos show up with a slight blur to the edges of the lettering - this photo shows no blurring at all - very crisp - also, the coloring of the date info is yellow - normal colors are reddish in color.
5.) All the buildings as well as the man in the photos cast a shadow on the ground - no matter how small - the airplane in the photo does not.
6.) The airplane struck in the 80th-90th floor range - this man is standing on top of the 110th floor - the plane is too high up to strike where it actually did.
7.) A camera from a photographer on the ground was recovered and the film was developed, but this person was supposedly on the observation deck, the camera survived a 110 plus drop to the ground, survived shock from falling, survived fire and heat, and was supposedly recovered and developed by who knows whom, and it worked. The photos were then passed from out of state firefighters and then onto you via the Internet - but were never shown on national TV - as a real instance of this issue has been - by a photographer who died on the ground taking photos and his camera was recovered away from the direct scene. Also, if this plane was as close as is shown in the photo, the person taking the photo would have seen the plane coming in close BEFORE the actual photo was snapped and action would have been seen by the man standing there as well as the person taking the photo either looking at the plane or trying to run away.
8.) Someone this close to an airplane would be able to see an exhaust plume coming from the jet engines of the plane - no plume is shown here.
9.) The plane that crashed into the tower was traveling between 200 - 400 mph. If you have ever been to a NASCAR or Indy Car race (120 - 180 mph), then you know it is impossible to see an object up close that is moving this fast, let alone snap a clear picture of it. The equipment and film that would have been needed to take such a fast moving picture is well beyond the financial means of any Joe Blow.
Simple notice to you all - use your head and think for a second before passing on anything.
Do not lose any sleep or extend any extra prayers over this email and its picture - it is a fake and deserves nothing more than pointing this fact out to others to stop the passing of it. This individual is sick and twisted and should be slapped for such ignorance. If such people could spend such time and money on doing something good, we could look up to these people.

10/29/2001 - EMAIL HOAX
- STAY OUT OF THE MALLS ON OCTOBER 31, 2001
The story is false and unproved - it seems to be a hoax in the works at this time. People have nothing better to do than make up or try to strengthen tales to place fear into others. I blame the media for this mostly - but not this particular story - I have many reasons why I feel this one would not be true.
First off, here is the email:
START OF EMAIL
I think you all know that
I don't send out hoaxes and don't do the
My friend's friend was dating
a guy from Afghanistan up until a month
This is not an email that
I've received and decided to pass on. This
OK, sounds pretty good, huh? Maybe so if it wasn't so twisted and different each time it is mailed out. Key thing to see and think about here - and truly keep in mind. I say this because it is already too late - if a freak decides to pull this one off, it is not due to what I say or anyone else, it is simply because the freak already got the email and decided to try it once - just as with the last two greyhound bus hijackings - they saw it on TV and thought, why not. Just as the media said - oh no, anthrax might be the next move - oh ok, lets try anthrax now. This is the same.
STOP PASSING THIS CRAP and giving complete morons with no life and reason to live the ideas they need to feed upon.
Think about the high school shootings from not too long ago...notice how they picked up and occurred everywhere once one was seen on TV.
Remember the Tylenol/Cyanide scare form 20 years ago?
Did you realize it was Excedrin that was originally poisoned by a wife who killed her husband but the media and coroner got it all wrong and stated his death wrong and shorted her $100,000 of life insurance money so she went and planted the cyanide capsules herself? Others saw this and started their own cyanide tampering after she did this. Now today, we have sealed bottles of everything.
Do you remember and did you know that is why it happened?
OK, here goes my opinion. My two cents so to speak...
Why would someone choose October 31, 2001 as a date to bomb all the malls? REALLY - WHY? Who will be in these malls? Not me - I plan on being at home passing out Halloween candy to all the neighborhood kids (maybe after a quick stop at the local grocery store or drug store to stock up on more candy to pass out since I may have already eaten what I stocked up on in the first place - but I'm definitely not going to be in any mall). This would be more believable if the date was November 23, 2001 - the day after Thanksgiving - the number one shopping day in America. Now then it would seem credible - ooops - I guess the prankster who sent this one on is not too smart.
Think about it once...
The World Trade Center was probably chosen for it shear size and the amount of damage and people who could be killed in one spot. Who will be in the malls on Halloween? Not many. Who will be in the malls the day after Thanksgiving - many (probably not now though - you will be too scared). How many of you change your spatula or other utensils during the handling and cooking of raw meat? How often do you go out into a public place and touch a door knob, toilet handle, toilet seat, salt and pepper shaker, ketchup bottle, table top,
Lets really face it here folks - more of you in your daily lives are at risk of death and damage to yourself in more possible ways than idle threats of terrorist attacks - right? How many of you wash your hands after every trip to the bathroom? How many of you sterilize your cutting boards? How many of you wipe your hands on a kitchen towel after handling raw meat? How many of you kiss others with cold sores? How many of you touch a dirty pay phone or parking meter in a day? How many of you sit down at a public computer and use the keyboard? How many of you touch machines that others have touched at work? How many of you reach into the newspaper box at the store or pump your own gas? How many of you are within close contact to other living and breathing people and/or animals every day? How many of you drive a car on the public roads? Walk across the road to get the mail and then touch the mailbox? Touch money? Touch ink pens? Breathe the air? Have sex without protection and trust your partner is healthy and has only been with you? If you are absolutely sure of these things, and what you are in contact with daily - you never leave your own home, wear gas masks 24/7 in an oxygen purified home, touch nothing or you are stuck in an ICU unit at a local hospital.
THINK ABOUT THIS ONCE - SERIOUSLY! THINK ABOUT WHAT I AM SAYING HERE!
You put you and your family's lives in more danger in your day to day activities than can be found with these threats and anthrax scares going about right now. I'm sorry to say, but if your day is up - its up. Some are lucky (if you think they really are - ask them once - see what they say) to know when they may die - for the rest of us, it comes as a complete surprise. This is life folks. This is how it is. Yes, there are some terrible things going on right now that Americans are not comfortable with - BUT, there are terrible things going on every day in life that no one is comfortable with - it seems many have forgotten this lately.
Maybe you need a little wake up call to remind you...
How many people are terminally ill right now, how many people die in car crashes, plane crashes, train crashes, building disasters, due to disease, due to starvation, the elements, smoking, drinking, drugs, school shootings, co-worker shootings, robbery, crime, exposure to an unhealthy environment, listeria, food poisoning, explosions, military duty, and natural death. These are all the things that effect us every day - and always have. The game has changed a bit, yes. But it is only another factor such as car crashes, bicycle accidents, and being in the wrong place at the right time. You cannot change these things. You really cannot.
So please, continue living your sweet life while you have it - enjoy every day to its fullest - as you already should have been up to this point. The date September 11, 2001 doesn't change this - it only clarifies your goals and your life even more. Just ask someone who cannot enjoy every day as you do - just ask someone who might not make it to tomorrow - just ask a friend or stop by a hospital - I'm sure you can find someone not far suffering and passing away as you read this. Just ask them and feel the pain and stress they and their loved ones are going through. Do you want to add this crap assed fear to their life - another death factor as some see it. Anyone who is ill or terminally ill would if they could, I bet they would take it any day! I bet they would trade your shoes. Many others who are not even ill would. People tend to rank their lives lower than they are worth - until something shows them how beautiful it really is - but then - they still do not see the whole picture.
Enjoy your life - God (or someone) gave it too you. Take it and live it while you can. Don't abuse it, don't live it in fear. Simply live it up and to the fullest. You only have one (so we know so far) - so make the best of it. Living in fear will do you, your family and others who could benefit from your knowledge, personality and fun no good at all. Maybe you are better off dead if you think I'm wrong. Maybe you really are. Go ahead, stockpile those drugs that might not be there for me when or if I need them, go ahead and make those gas mask companies and the others who prey on your fear, patriotism and dollars to keep them living their lives. You can bet they are living life to the fullest right now.
Flags have been available for over 200 years - you are just buying and displaying one now??? WHY??? Must be to make the vendors rich...guess I'm in the wrong business...Well at least the guys who work at the flag companies, gas mask companies, and Bayer AG (Germany) will still have a job - Thanks for really thinking about these people who never really made any money in the past - maybe after I lose my job due to your fear of buying anything lately except the stupid things you think will help you - that these folks will turn around and support us all. Boy, I really hope I keep my job.. and I hope these folks support me...I really hope I do...
Patriotism is not simply owning a flag - its standing behind it bravely and keeping your head...do you remember the phrase, land of the free and home of the brave...where are the brave now - buying Cipro, gas masks, flags and staying out of the malls, airplanes, buildings, the general public, not buying stocks or anything and not opening mail but are passing on false and hoax filled emails to their family and friends from the safety of home.
Oh what a great land to live in and a great time to be alive...As if this wasn't the thought of the terrorists in the first place. Chaos is great, huh...
As for me, I'm going to be out enjoying my life even more and taking great advantage of the deals you created for me in the retail, travel, and day to day industries called life. I won't be out there buying gas masks, Cipro, or human parachutes. I won't be hiding in my home and trying to grow my own food and building a fallout shelter as was done already in or lives. I'm out there and enjoying it while I can - too many cannot.
Hey, do you remember the Y2K scare that many tried to hype and make money on?
If you want to get in touch with me, leave me a message - because I'm not home...
By the way, since I got so off on a tangent on this topic, here is the official FBI press release regarding this email:
