Past history prior to 9/11 has shown that you never pissed off the hijackers.
No resistance by passengers or pilots during the 70 and 80s. No until they land and thats when hijackers will meet real resistance with bullet in the head.
Guess there is a policy not to antagonize the hijackers that could have a bomb on board until they land. IMHO.

Is it not possible that the pilots were forced to give up the cockpit because the terrorists were killing passengers? What if one of them had a knife to a kids throat threatening to kill them? What would YOU do?
And seeing the passengers wouldn't have known where it was they were heading or that the hijackers had plans to kill them all, why the hell would they rush them? They would almost certainly die then.
eyewitness, you make out that all pilots are rambo who could take anyone down when confronted with a knife. You can't train or prepare for events like that. Yes you're concerned for the safety of the passengers, but your own safety comes first and foremost.
They're pilots, not ninjas.
Originally posted by forestladyThe pilots would not risk the lives of all the passengers by trying to save just one person. Many pilots, if not most, were in the military and are trained at combat, etc. And, you may find it hard to believe, but many, if not most, pilots would give their lives to save the passengers. It's the mindset they have - they are very aware that they are responsible for hundreds of lives on the plane.

BREAKING 9/11 NEWS: FBI Says Barbara Olsen Did Not Call Ted Olsen. Bush Solicitor General LIED !!
by Bill Douglas Page 1 of 2 page(s)
Nationally syndicated talk show host Charles Goyette uncovered blockbuster information in his drive-time interview with author David Ray Griffin.
A center piece of the increasingly apparent BULLSH*T story our government and corporate media have fed us for six long years was a complete fabrication!
We were fed a lie by Ted Olsen who served as Solictor General for the Bush Administration, when on 9/11 he held a press conference to tell America and the world that his dead wife had called him before her demise from the jet she was on that had just been hijacked.
Personally, I thought it was odd at the time that a man would decide to hold a press conference minutes after hearing of his own wife’s death, when it happened on 9/11. If my own wife had just died, the last thing I’d want to do would be to talk to anyone, let alone call a press conference. It didn’t “smell” right.
Now we know why it didn’t smell right. It was a lie. The FBI has reported that no such call between Barbara Olsen and Ted Olsen ever took place on 9/11/2001.
It was part of the rapidly unraveling scam that is the official story of 9/11.
