FBI Says Space Needle Not a Target.

Business Editors

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 28, 2001

The following is the official statement from the Space Needle Corporation in response to news stories suggesting the Landmark was a target for terrorist activities on Sept. 11:

"We do not take risks with public safety.

"Ever since the tragedy of Sept. 11, the Space Needle has been in direct and ongoing contact with the FBI about potential threats to the Landmark. According to the FBI, there is absolutely no basis for these reports.

"In fact, the FBI's Special Agent in Charge for Washington State has assured us several times today and over the past few weeks that the Space Needle was never a target of terrorist activity and that media reports suggesting so are completely false.

"On Sept. 11, the Space Needle immediately implemented its Emergency Security Plan. The safety of our guests and our employees continues as our top priority.

"We continue to keep in contact with law enforcement agencies monitoring the situation. Since 1962, the Space Needle has stood strong and proud as a symbol of our city and it will continue to do so."
