Donald Trump's Offer Still Stands: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight, we go one on one with Donald Trump. He says he's got a way out for the planners of that Islamic Center near the World Trade Center site. His way out is a buy out. But they say they're not selling.
So, is he taking no for an answer? Stay tuned and hear it as only Trump can tell it. Plus, ahead of the 9th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks we take you inside the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    @Nakia, "Do you honestly believe he's stayed in one country all this time?"

    I didn't say that,but chances are he may have been in Pakistan right after 9/11. I am well aware that Al-Qaeda has terror cells all over the world. They even have influence inside U.S. military bases, let's not forget Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan.

    wow. ouch. now THAT'S even better than "between the eyes with a two-by-four". only saw part of a season finale of "amazing race" several seasons ago.

    pleasantly surprised to see live show and blog tonight. have a great weekend.

    Rather presumptuous (and childish) to assume someone is tweeting about you when you're not mentioned, don't you think?

    Thank you Anderson for the history segment of 911. I'm sure there will be other stories all weekend long. Great blog as usual. Evening all...see you next week.

    That is a great retort by Palin! She did get Arnold nicely on that one!

    Yes, it would be nice to catch bin Laden but there are plenty more where he came from and a family can only get so much pleasure out of catching a loved one's murderer. It doesn't really change anything or bring back the loved one.

    I truly feel that the United States has never had serious intentions of capturing/killing Osama bin Laden. The media throws out his name every couple of months to remind us that we are still searching, but we just keep hitting the wrong cave he is hiding in. Please, we are not 1st graders! Give us a little more credit than this.

    The utility company shld've informed the residents in the area about what they found when looking for the gas leak, did that happen before or after resident noticed a gas smell by the stop sign?

    September 10, 2010 at 10:53 pm |
  29. Nakia

    @Jo Ann: for all you know, Bin Laden could be here. Do you honestly believe he's stayed in one country all this time? FYI – not all countries with Al-Qaeda affiliated terror cells are in the Middle East. There are many places he could hide.

    @Nicole The Netherlands,
    I look forward to seeing you each night on the blog, too. 😛

    I've not seen that video footage of 9/11, yet it's burnt into my mind. I really hope that the memorial will be built soon.

    Just a common sense reminder on natural gas.

    If you smell the common odor associated with natural gas, call your fire department to report the order. Generally, they have the detectors which can snif out such a problem.

    With local, regional and interstate pipelines, it is unlikely that you could quickly determine which company is responsible for location and repair.

    Thank you for another amazing show, Anderson, have a great weekend... Praying that more love prevails then hate this weekend, and hope that, that awakens inspiration to uncover what we need to bring about a lasting peace.

    @Samantha Rowley – Nashville, TN, "I'd be curious to know if there are military troops assigned to look for Bin Laden (e.g. covert ops teams). Or are they off limits to go into Pakistan"

    Except for some unmanned Predator drone missiles, I have always heard that U.S. troops were not allowed to go into Pakistan.

    When I hear comments like Tom said "there are not enough inspectors", and we're facing higher levels of unemployment, why is this the case? Perhaps some workers can be retrained or reskilled and enter these fields. Talk about getting jobs back to these unemployed people and help our economy.

    I never really think about all the gas pipelines that are running underground in my neighborhood.,,After this gas explosion,it made me think about it.

    September 10, 2010 at 10:49 pm |
  38. Dave

    I've often thought about the massive network of natural gas underground.
    Does anyone kow what caused the problem? I find it surprising that in a place such as CA they allow underground gas lines with all the quakes & I wonder if a quake or tremor didn't cause the problem that resulted in the explosion.

    People seem to think that engineering is perfect, or should be. It's not. Bridges collapse. Pipes fail. Planes crash. If we want perfection, we'd need to pay 100 times more for everything. Life is calculated risk.

    Some of my best friends and relatives are moderate Muslims and they are considerate to others. I don't think the Imam is moderate. If he were a man of peace and if he were a patriot he would back off until healing and restoration take place. Then we can start a mutually respectful interfaith dialogue. Isn't making peace worth the sacrifice of moving a few blocks away even if he has the right not to?

    @Casey-'PG&E has been faithfully referred to (for more than 50 years) by customers as Pig Goat & Elephant. They've definitely had more than their share of PR blunders.'

    Are they the same company that had the water issue that sparked the movie 'Erin Brokovich'? They sound like it....

    September 10, 2010 at 10:48 pm |
  43. Emily

    Another problem with PG&E...
    I don't want to see this movie. The very images of that vast & destructive fire is more than enough.

    United States of America was the first put a man on the Moon....but we cant find "1" man "bin Ladden in our own world....i think this is one thing that America need to finish ...as we get closer to the 10th Anniversary or it may haunt Americans forever...

    PG and E are accountable to check if there are danger, and smell odor gas..... That is best safety very important to call Gas company right away.
