  Has Reuters gone wonky?
 
Color me shocked:
Final WTC Victim Count 2,749, Say NY Officials

A spokeswoman for the New York medical examiner's office said three names were taken off the list this week when investigators determined they could not definitively prove these people were at the site when Islamic militants slammed two hijacked planes into the twin towers.

This might be the first time I've seen a Reuters or AP story actually refer to the hijackers by their religion. They almost make it sound like their wacky, fundamentalist religious beliefs drove them to do it. Imagine that! Now, if they'd only complete this transformation and call them what they really were: Islamic terrorists.
