A few interesting screenshots from the Terrorism Research Center on September 11, 2001.
Here is a message that Neal Pollard and I wrote that greeted our visitors when they first hit the terrorism.com domain. Having founded the company on the 1st anniversary of the OKC bombing we were sensitive to drawing too many conclusions too soon and were worried about the backlash against Muslim Americans. In reality, we had already drawn some of our own conclusions and were sharing them with our customers and colleagues. However, given we were the top result for “terrorism” on Google and were getting millions of visitors, we felt we had a responsibility to provide calm consistent messaging focusing energy on the rescue operations. Several months later I would learn how widespread the distribution of this message was, with some companies printing out copies for all employees.

We also set up a special section of the site to track developments relating to the attacks. This screenshot is from some time in the 24-72 hours following the attacks.
