One of the major carriers (I forget which) has already publicly announced
that they will not interpret their war exclusion clause to apply to the WTC
attack. They have vowed that their clause will be interpreted to include
only armed conflict between soveriegn nations. Like I say, I forget who it
was, but it was a biggie. I think all the other major carriers will now
follow suit to avoid being seen as "unAmerican."
