REMEMBERING THE FIRST WORLD TRADE CENTER BOMBING – February 26, 1993

Posted by FactReal on February 26, 2010

Islamic terrorists have been attacking Americans long before 9/11. One of those attacks is the 1993 World Trade Center bombing:
“On the morning of Feb. 26, 1993, Eyad Ismoil drove a rented Ryder Ford F350 Econoline truck packed with 1,500 pounds of fertilizer-based explosives into level B-2 of the underground garage beneath the World Trade Center. Ismoil departed, leaving a timing device set to detonate the explosives a while later.

At 12:18 p.m., the bomb exploded, killing six, creating a crater 150 feet in diameter that blew a hole five floors deep in the parking garage. The towers, however, did not fall.

Killed were John DiGiovanni, Robert Kirkpatrick, Stephen Knapp, William Macko, Wilfredo Mercado and Monica Smith.

Yousef, the mastermind of the plot, later said he had hoped to kill tens of thousands.

The explosives were manufactured at a Jersey City apartment, using chemicals ordered from a supply company. They were placed in the truck at a rented storage shed alongside three tanks of compressed hydrogen gas, purchased to enhance the destructive power of the explosives.

The plotters, including Yousef and Yasin, built the bombs using manuals brought from Pakistan.”
