As we observe the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, it's important to remember that some of the information that will be passed on electronically and presented as fact will in fact be nothing more than speculation, rumor, and sadly, in some cases, outright fabrication.

Rich Buhler, creator of TruthOrFiction.com, has dedicated himself to separating fact from fiction and reminds us that, especially during this emotional time, we should be careful what we choose to believe and, more importantly, what we choose to pass on to our friends and family without checking the facts beforehand.

Ten years later, Americans are still wondering if it was wise to sacrifice some privacy and freedoms in order to fight terrorism.
