Lisle man used 9/11 experience to pen novel
LISLE – Twelve years ago this Sept. 11, George and Barbara Banas were on a boat, halfway between Morocco and Spain.
When word arrived that both World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon were struck by hijacked airplanes, the boat turned around and headed back to Tangier.
“We were detained because the Moroccan government didn’t know exactly what the consequences of the attack would be on them, because there was at least one Moroccan national [who aided the attack],” said Banas, now 72. “So they didn’t know if the U.S. government would retaliate against them one way or another.”
