    1. This is exactly what was said to be discovered on the computers taken from OBL,s house. We were told that Al Quida would derai trains on the tenth aniversery, but I guess, onve the news was out they went ahead and just did it.
      Just my speculation

    2. Looks like he just didn’t stop & he hit the end of the line – literally.

      Anyone from NJ who uses Hoboken Station should probably seek alternate routes on Monday including NJT transfering at Secaucus for a train to NY Penn Station.
