On seeing the photos of the September 11th hijackers

My first thought upon seeing the FBI photos of the hijackers was disbelief, these are the people that did this horrible crime? They look so normal. They look like people I've worked with. I can picture myself walking over to Saeed's cube to ask if he's finished up the JavaScript widget. Even now, I don't think I'd look twice if any of these guys got on a plane with me, and that may be the most terrifiying realization I've had: that terrorists look just like you and me. [via Dave]
