Does the author have any sources substantiating his claim that the aircraft accident exercise was done in December of 2000?
The following is a link to more than few airline crash results. I warn they are deeply disturbing to view. However, they do prove the valid point several people have made. The photos, at the link, soundly refute those making rationalizing arguments related to an alleged Flight 93, while desperately attempting to make the "official" report work.

NO PLANE crashed in Shanksville.
Its not debatable if a plane crashed. what should be debated is.. Did they fake the plane crash to remove a false radar blip that was being followed by legit people?
And flight 93 had plenty of time to be brought down by our own military. Hence the debris was scattered, instead of being confined to an area conducive to a crash.
Then could you provide evidence of the cockpit and first class section located in PA? I have seen no evidence of a cockpt and first class section. How does anyone find human remains in something has not been proved to be there?
How did they handle that evidence? Did they use gloves to prevent contamination of evidence?
Did they wrap every piece to avoid contamination of evidence before they placed it in a roll away dumpster?
That is beside the point. As I said, the Bush administration is highly suspect.
I do trust you will not insult my intelligence by saying federal agencies and departments are not controlled by the presidential office of the US bureaucracy.
I have relatives who worked for the federal government. If they were told it was a matter of national security, and not to tell the truth, they did what they were told or lost their jobs, plus, faced being discredited on their employement records.
As I recall, the one name on Flight 93 I remember, above any other, is Mark Bingham. The alleged gentleman who was supposed to have cell phone called his mother and said, "Hello, this is your son, Mark Bingham." I know no one who indentifies him or herself to a parent by first and last name, and found that extremely odd at the time.
Let me respectfully suggest that you do not understand the big picture here.
I thought it was time to set the record straight on a website error that's gotten out of hand. I've been getting calls and e-mails for several years, all from folks who have seen my byline on a story (Plane Lands In Cleveland; Bomb Feared Aboard) about Flight 93, the plane that crashed in a Pennsylvania field on September 11, 2001. The story in question, an Associated Press bulletin, was posted on WCPO.com during the morning of September 11, 2001. The story stated that Flight 93 landed in Cleveland. This was not true. Once the AP issued a retraction a few minutes later, we removed the link.
There were two problems:
1)I only removed the link TO the story. We did not remove the story itself. This was my error probably due to the busy nature of the day - I was the only person updating the website until about noon that day, and things were crazier than they’d ever been.
2) The byline was incorrect. In my haste, I pasted the “Reported by: 9News Staff” byline from a previous story, but this was actually an Associated Press story
Sometime in 2003 I received an e-mail inquiring about the story. I quickly removed the story, and wrote back to the person, thanking them for the heads up about the incorrect story. Things didn't stop there. Messages and phone calls started coming in about "Why did the government make me remove the story?" As is the nature of the net, folks had gotten a hold of the old story and posted it on their own blogs, fueling even more interest in the situation. So, for everyone who is still wondering about this story, here are some frequently asked questions. I'm hoping this clears everything up once and for all!
1. Where did the original story come from?
The story was an Associated Press bulletin that came across the news wires. Associated Press is a news service that many news organizations subscribe to for non-local news. The idea is that a local news organization can’t possibly have reporters everywhere in the world, so for that reason, we publish stories written by Associated Press journalists.
2. So you didn’t report the story yourself?
No, I work at the website in Cincinnati. I generally do not do any reporting out in the field. Also, I was not in Cleveland, nor does WCPO-TV have a Cleveland-based reporter. If you’re not familiar with the geography of Ohio, Cleveland is a good four hours away from us.
3. Why didn’t you remove the problem story page from the outset?
My mistake, that’s why. I removed the link TO the story, but didn’t remove the actual story. Then, the story page was indexed by the major search engines. I didn’t even know the story hadn’t been removed until after I was contacted by a member of the public
4. Why DID you remove the page?
Because it was in error.

Let me know where and how you are going to post that video. Unless...its been.....lost?
Lost? nope, sitting in my entertainment center with the rest of my videos...as for posting it..not going to happen. You can do your own research and find the news footage for yourself.
As many times as you have called my integrity into question Mr. Lear, I will do no favors for you.

I never called it a retraction. It's a correction. You and jackinthebox asked for their retraction, I posted the link of the correction.
Sorry if you misunderstood.
