Terror Threat Latest: Join the Live Chat

Anderson will be reporting live from the World Trade Center Site with new details on the terror threat that has New York and Washington on alert. Plus, why 10 years after 9/11 first responders in some cities still can't count on fully functioning communications systems – lifesaving systems – if catastrophe strikes.

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 $#&*)

    Very, very touching to hear the kids talk. So much loss and grief. They were brave to share.

    What an excellent idea to show the children who were probably the Most affected of all.

    It's a heart breaking piece. God bless them all – i bet All of them are and will be a tribute to our country!

    Fascinating report from Pakistan and conversation with Lawrence Wright, Anderson.
    –Amazing view of Ground Zero from where you are.

    I complete agree that it is important that we do not give in to fear. We must endure on everything we do,

    September 9, 2011 at 8:47 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

      Exactly right, Gloria...... Very important to do thing remember!

  11. Starr, formerly know as vincent

    What a remarkably True statement by this gentleman about the 2 unfunded wars.

    Bush et al, did Exactly what Bin Laden wanted – almost bankrupting the USA!

    Our Gov' s reaction to 9/11 was a reaction based on fear And arrogance.

    Great interview Anderson!

    September 9, 2011 at 8:47 pm |
  12. Sharon Hastings

    Oh boy is he right. Just what I've thought all along since 9/11. We've made some mistakes but we can get back on track. We need to stop being so reactive.

    September 9, 2011 at 8:46 pm |
    • Starr, formerly know as vincent

      I agree Sharon. We should be Smarter (using our Brains), Not our muscle. We need to be very selective when using "muscle."

    Anderson just showed two pools. This is the first I've seen this. I was always aware of just one. Elaborate.
    I bet a lot of people don't know this!

    September 9, 2011 at 8:36 pm |
    • Starr, formerly know as vincent

      I didn't know there were two pools either.

      I wonder if both are commemorations for the people who expired on 9/11/01?

      September 9, 2011 at 8:42 pm |
      • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

        Yes, It is.......Starr.... There are 2 pools underground by 2 towers.......
        Thanks for info, Gail...... You're so right about 2 pools.

    Uniforms,i.d. & vehicles of police,fire or emergency services could be easily obtained to effect access to area, since two of the terrorists are american. It troubles me to think this, but it is true.

  16. Starr, formerly know as vincent

    My heart breaks for the Syrian people.

    It is also concerning that Egypt does Not want an Israli delegation in their country.

    I hope they catch one suspect look like they are close

    September 9, 2011 at 8:29 pm |

    Greetings everyone,

    Remembering all the victims of 9/11 – we honor the lives cut short and for those suffering from the continued lost of that horrific day, the much needed comfort and strength – from day to day.

    September 9, 2011 at 8:28 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

      Vince, I agree with your comment, It is so sad 10 years since we lost love ones dear.... To hard for us remember the day!!!!

      September 9, 2011 at 8:50 pm |
  19. Paula, Colorado

    The first responders should be given the highest priority in their work.

    September 9, 2011 at 8:23 pm |
    • Starr, formerly know as vincent

      I completely agree Paula. I just can't understand Why, after 10 yrs., such an Important issue has Not been taken care of!

      September 9, 2011 at 8:30 pm |
  20. Tim Cathcart-Black

    Anderson.. Could you ask your expert guests if Authorities give consideration and weight to the possibilty that the "credible info" about a possible terror plot in New York or Washington could be to misdirect security resources?

    Thanks
    Tim

    September 9, 2011 at 8:21 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

      Good point question, Tim......
      I think that they have believe 2 of citizens who lives across the U.S... We don't know where they are right now, They are investigating wether to be found 2 cities both of them.

      September 9, 2011 at 8:32 pm |
    • Vince

      Tim,
      You can never rule out diversions – I expect that due attention would be given to ensure that hightened security goes well beyond NY/DC – as the secured and prudent approach.

      September 9, 2011 at 8:49 pm |
  21. Starr, formerly know as vincent

    I had No idea that communication issues were associated with the HOuse – it figures and explains Why nothing has been done!

    I will be writing to my congressman and quite a few others who are assocated with getting the Proper communication devices to 1st responders to All cities in America!!

    Everyone, please write too.

    September 9, 2011 at 8:21 pm |
    • Vince

      Starr,

      I like the fact that you are always proactive in contacting your congressman on the issues!

      September 9, 2011 at 8:33 pm |
      • Starr, formerly know as vincent

        Thank you Vince. It's our responsibility & right to contact our rep's & sen's & President.

        Let me not be the only one.

        September 9, 2011 at 8:37 pm |
  22. Sharon Hastings

    Oh good, sounds like they have made progress in identifying one of the suspects.

  23. vic , nashville ,tn

    Good evening everyone

    this sad that Congress didn’t want allocate money to improve communication for firefighter and police

    September 9, 2011 at 8:18 pm |
    • Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

      Sad true, I agree...... Congress don't want to help them as well...... I hope they will pass the bill for sure, Vic!!!!

      September 9, 2011 at 8:24 pm |
  24. Sharon Hastings

    We haven't been the same country since 9/11. We lost that feeling of security and feeling safe in the U.S. and we began fighting wars all over the place. Sparked alot of fear.

    September 9, 2011 at 8:17 pm |
    • Starr, formerly know as vincent

      I agree Sharon. We all need to try and emulate the Greatest Generation, who grew up during the depression and then fought in WW2!

      September 9, 2011 at 8:28 pm |
  25. Starr, formerly know as vincent

    Hey BettyAnn! How are you, your family & your pets? Great to see you on the blog!!

    I remains Astonished that the communication systems for the 1st responder has Still Not been solved!

    I am looking forward to the report to find our what's the Holdup on matching communication between 1st responders!

    September 9, 2011 at 8:11 pm |
