The other three hit their targets — the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. — with the kind of “precision” we now associate with the laser-guided weaponry of the U.S. Air Force.

The other three hit their targets -- the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC -- with the kind of "precision" we now associate with the laser-guided weaponry of the US Air Force. From its opening salvo, in other words, this conflict has been an air war.

(Though no one knows just where that plane in Pennsylvania was heading, undoubtedly it was either ...
