A Quick Note about the 2,996

I’ve received a couple of comments on this so I just want to be clear that the list of 2,996 name does NOT contain the hijackers.

When I downloaded the list 5 years ago I chose to include both those officially listed as killed, AND those listed as missing. In the last 5 years a small number of those originally listed as missing have been added to the list of official victims. As of right now, the number of missing is 19, the same as the number of hijackers.

My list is not identical to the official list of victims. From the beginning I decided that I’d rather accidentally include a name than accidentally exclude someone.
