"Those on the inside know it as The Order. Others have known it for more than 150 years as Chapter 322 of a German secret society. More formally, for legal purposes, The Order was incorporated as The Russell Trust in 1856. It was also once known as the 'Brotherhood of Death'. Those who make light of it, or want to make fun of it, call it 'Skull & Bones', or just plain 'Bones'." —Anthony C. Sutton, America's Secret Establishment, 1986

My hunch says that these new breed of suicide bombers are not aware that they are suicide bombers .

Bombing took place in departure lounge - terrorists were told to target the largest concentration of people to
maximize the casualties
Gloves were there to prevent any static discharges causing premature detonation as well as hiding the detonator
Wearing only one glove is not a criminal offense so nobody would take notice of it
As for Marvin Bush and WTC - Bush was on board of directors for Securcom, which had contract for security camera at WTC
Company was replaced in 2000, 1 1/2 years before attack (and before Bush was even elected)
According to Catherine Herridge, chief intelligence correspondent for the Fox News Channel, the gloves may have concealed a ‘dead man’s switch’ - a detonator switch attached or taped to an attacker’s hand. When a suicide bomber loses the grip on the switch, it sets off the detonation.
“So if they were shot and brought down, the bomb would still explode,” she said.
is it just me? Or do the does the image look photoshopped? Or is it my eyes? The two gloves look exactly alike...

Not sure if this has been thought of yet or posted about, but when I saw the pic of the suspects pushing the carts with one glove on each I had a thought.
Here is the pic:
So they each have a left gloved hand and right bare hand on the push carts. The third suspect has no gloves on and I am unsure if he is even related. I have heard reports that there were two loud bangs before the explosions. I have also read that police think the gloves were put on to hide a detonation trigger.
My thought is that the gloved hand and bare hand WERE the detonation triggers. By that I mean, and I am no whiz at circuits, the hand was gloved so as to not complete the circuit and the bomb was rigged to the cart such that if both hands were bare the circuit would be complete and BOOM, but if the bare hand were taken off, the same thing....BOOM. So these guys had essentially created a deadmans trigger by using their bodies as the circuit completion.
Does that make sense to anyone else at all?

I think if I had one shot to accomplish my mission, the very last thing I'd want to do is use some hinky half tested touch switch crap when a simple contact switch would do the job.
