Trust me, I have studied martial arts for over 15 years, and most people attacking me with a weapon as pathetic as a box cutter would be unpleasantly surprise with the results of the attack. Superficial slashes will not stop a trained martial artist.

mytym, you are incorrect when you say there have been no multiple hits prior to september 11th. that is a flawed argument simply because the embassies in kenya and tanzania in 1998 were attacked by alqaeda..at the same time.
i think people need to give al qaeda more credit. they are well educated people, with access to money. theyve been educated at places like oxford, the university of egypt. they are not dumb, and to postulate that they were able to pull off 9-11 is not far fetched. airline security was a joke prior to 9-11 (i can probably argue it still is now), and the common operating procedure in regards to hijackings was much softer, because people always figured they had demands and wanted to go somewhere.
im not suprised they pulled it off.
time for classs (last day of freshman year 8-)
be back soon

OK, perhaps there were other multiple attacks, but the method of 4 planes crashing into buildings almost simultaneously, seems very out of character.

Unfortunately that is a prevailing theme among many conspiracy theorists. It reeks of latent racism. How many times have you seen the argument that goes something like this: “there is no way that 19 Arabs with boxcutters could take over and fly those planes;” with the implied argument that because the men were Arabs, they should not have been able to that.
