Two Criminals

Exhibit A: Mohamed Atta, an Egyptian, a known associate of al-Qaeda, and the ringleader of the 19 hijackers in the September 11 attacks. Atta was at the controls of American Airlines Flight 11 which was the first plane to strike the World Trade Center.

Exhibit B: Philippe Petit, a French high-wire artist, who gained fame for his illegal walk between the Twin Towers in New York City on August 7, 1974.

He is featured in the eloquent and moving documentary, Man on Wire. See it!
