That is uncanny.
People forget that New Yorkers never forgot the earlier attack on the WTC and that repeated threats from AQ to attack the US had bigger play in NYC media in the pre-9/11 period. There was an expectation by many that terrorists would come back to finish it, and representations of the WTC being attacked were not uncommon. There was even an X-Files spinoff episode about something along those lines just before 9/11. I myself remember, as an adolescent, reading about OBL's latest threat to the US and assuming he would hit NYC.

September 11, 1609 - Henry Hudson discovers Manhatten

September 11, 1941 - Ground is first broken for the construction of the Pentagon

September 11, 1978 - Jimmy Carter, Anwar Sadat, and Menachim Begin meet and agree on the Camp David Accords as a framework for peace between Israel and Egypt.

September 11, 1990 - George Bush sr gave his "Toward a New World Order" speech to a joint session of Congress

I'm thinking that the date was chosen by AQ to counterpoint the Camp David Accords and/or Bush's New World Order speech. That the two targets were also founded on the same date puzzles me.
