The State of the Union address by President Bush to the 107th US Congress of the United States is in progress at the time, an evacuation was ordered, but too late. All of the Congresspeople where killed, apart from three survivors. The White House is destroyed, and the Pentagon is damaged by two other hijacked commercial airliners, a fourth plane was downed by thr US Air Force, shortly before it reached its target, Yale.
