Mono print depicting the World Trade Center complex, including the Twin Towers, and the legs and torso of a male figure. Four circled X's are depicted on the Twin Towers, indicating possible points of explosion in the foundations and the points of impact of the planes on 11 September 2001. On the left of the image, a box of text taken from a newspaper report is quoted. Artist Roger Morris has also inserted several of his own words. The text reads: "Lieutenant Colonel Eric SCHwar-tz did not see much of Baghdad as his battalion of 60 tanks, bradleys and other armoured vehicles churned along high-way B, rumbling through an industrial and then residen-tial zone not far from the city centre. All he recalled when it was over, were the IRAQI soldiers, artillery batterie, then pick-up trucks mounted with machine guns, and DEBORAHs sweet arse. ... the whip and blast of rock-et propelled grenades, the whipzz of bullets and the firey explosions of cars full, he presumed, with students cramming for April exams but who all unfortunately died under Lt. Col Schwarts' fire." The artwork draws attention to the bombastic nature of reporting around the 'War on Terror'.

Depiction of the World Trade Center Towers and their foundations. The towers and the surrounding earth are painted black. Two white X's mark the points in the foundation where, according to alternative viewpoints on why the towers collapsed, explosives may have been planted. Two large red X's are also painted on the towers and red paint extends up the length of the towers from the foundations, indicating perhaps both the structural cores of the buildings and the progress of the explosions. Several arrows point to both the explosives in the tower and at two frames printed on the left of the image. The images in the frames are indiscernible but may indicate surveillance, grainy television or night vision images. The artwork features hundreds of small dots, which are used to suggest pixellated media images. The artwork questions who controls information about world events.

Collage of comic book elements and painted elements. A black military aircraft with the silhouette of a pilot is printed over a comic book page. The bottom of the aircraft shows a string of white numbers and letters that refer to the code printed into a piece of metal retrieved from an American missile dropped on a residential area of Baghdad, Iraq, in March 2003. The missile killed dozens of civilians. The words "HIT HERE", stencilled in white and yellow paint onto the body of the aircraft, refer to targets attacked by the US military. Also on the body of the aircraft, a figure is silhouetted against a red outline. On the left of the image, a vertical frieze of paintings has been glued to the comic book page. The images are virtually indistinguishable, perhaps reminiscent of CTV or night vision images. The bottom frame in the frieze features a red dot, which represents the laser dot of a sniper's gun. On the right of the image another piece of comic has been glued on separately. It depicts a space ship shape in an explosion, with the word "BLANG!" in capitals. The text in the frame reads: "Of course, bugbomb are also highly explosive." A white sticker with red diagonal lines and the letters "UM" is also adhered beneath the aircraft. The collage is from Morris' 'Enduring Freedom' series, which explores differing version of truth surrounding the September 11, 2001 'terror attacks' in the United States of America.
