NU Online News Service, Sept. 13, 10:15 a.m. – Cerulli Associates, Boston, a consulting firm, was closer than it wanted to the action Wednesday when FBI agents swarmed into a nearby downtown hotel.

The agents were checking rooms at the Westin-Copley Hotel used by travelers who may have a connection to the Sept. 11 attacks on the Manhattan World Trade Center complex.

The two planes involved in the suicide mission both originated at Boston’s Logan airport, investigators say.
