    Thousands dead in raids; nation shaken
Terrorists hijacked four passenger jets and turned them into guided missiles yesterday, striking at US government and financial capitals, in choreographed attacks that left thousands feared dead and that shredded the nation's sense of security.

Crashes in NYC had grim origins at Logan
Long-standing concerns about the adequacy of security at Boston's Logan International Airport took on new weight yesterday after two jets that had taken off from Boston were hijacked and later crashed into the twin World Trade Center towers in New York.

Planes left trail of grief

    In unfathomable way,
we now know terror

It was a day of infamy, but Sept. 11, 2001, was a day of infamy unlike any other. It marked the most lethal attack on the United States in history. It marked the beginning of a period of incomprehensible domestic fear and vulnerability.
-- By David M. Shribman, Globe Staff
