Greatest Hits -- War On Terror

Originally published on July 20, 2005, this post was related to the war on terror, and included links to some incredible photographs of that day by a photographer who gave his life getting the shots. Please visit the links.


These are two sites I have found recently that can best be described as creepy and cool.

Here, a flash player video maps and summarizes the war with Al Qeada since its jihad declared in 1998. It has a world map, then with text, a time line and some photos, shows the major terrorist attacks linked to the jihad. Many took place before the war with Iraq.

A must see. Some background music if you are at work.

At this site, we see the last photos of Bill Biggart (right). Mr. Biggart was a professional photographer in New York on 9-11-2001. He took several really impressive photos of the events that morning. Then, when the second tower fell, he was crushed to death.

His equipment was salvaged, and his photos saved for us to see.

And see them you must. These are some incredible shots, made more incredible because we know how his story ended.
