fact and fiction, part 2
I mentioned the other day that I am re-reading Nelson DeMille's The Lion's Game.
I picked up the book tonight and hit this passage, whrere the fugitive-on-a-jihad Kahlil is in a taxi cab with a compatriot:
"If you look that way, sir, to your right, you will see lower Manhattan, what they call the Financial District. You will notice the two very tall and identical towers."
Kahlil lookeed at the massive buildings of lower Manhattan, which seemed to rise out of the water. He saw the two towers of the World Trade Cener and appreciated Jabbar pointing them out. Kahlil said, "Maybe next time."
Jabbar smiled and replied, "God willing."
That was written in 2000.
I put the book down and looked for something else to read.
