I go with the evidence that is made publicly available. You take all that massive evidence and voila! you draw your conclusion. It's pretty simple.
Did I watch them during their recovery mission at Shanksville? Nope. Did you? Nope.
Did one of the 2,500 people that worked the crash site mention ANYTHING out of the ordinary? NOPE
Did ONE investigator at the NTSB, UA, FBI, or any first responders think that flight 93 DIDN'T crash there?
You see, I will take the words and photographs from the thousands of people that were there.
Here are 10 points of evidence that you can use, and please, be my guest in trying to refute them.
1) The four hijackers purchased tickets under their own names and boarded the plane. One was randomly selected for and passed additional security
screening. Ziad Jarrah was a licensed pilot and had recent training on professional large jet flight simulators. United flight 93 was scheduled to
depart at 8:00 am, but left 42 minutes late due to airport traffic. Aboard were 33 passengers, 7 crew members, and 4 hijackers.
2) Several passengers and crew called from the plane, spoke with loved ones, described the hijackers' attack, and related their plan to try to retake
the plane so that it would not be used as a suicide weapon against a populated area. All but two of these calls were made using the plane's seatback
3) The cockpit voice recorder recorded the hijackers' attack and apparent murder of the pilots and a flight attendant. Air traffic controllers heard
a radio transmission by a man with an Arabic accent, warning of a bomb on board. Passengers reported that one of the hijackers had what appeared to be
a bomb strapped to him.
4) After learning about the other attacks, passengers and cabin crew attempted to retake the cockpit but were apparently unable to gain entry. The
sound of their attempts was recorded on the CVR. The CVR also recorded the hijackers' decision to end the flight, followed by repeated shouts of
"Allahu Akbar!" ("God is greatest.") until the plane crashed. Families of victims heard the CVR recording.
5) Flight 93 was tracked by radar until it went down.
6) Many people in Pennsylvania saw the Boeing 757, traveling at low altitude and high speed, roll to the right and plummet upside-down, nose first,
towards the ground. Many people witnessed the subsequent enormous explosion and fireball. Val McClatchey photographed the mushroom cloud.
7) Hundreds of first responders (mostly volunteer firefighters) and crime scene investigators were quickly on the scene. They saw human remains,
aircraft wreckage, personal effects, jet fuel, etc.
The cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder were recovered and had usable data, all of which is consistent with the other evidence.
8) The remains of every victim was positively identified. Somerset County Coroner Wallace Miller personally collected many remains and made 12
identifications through fingerprints and dental records. Personal effects of most passengers and crew were recovered and returned to their
9) Hijacker identification documents and personal effects were recovered, along with the remains of four people identified as the hijackers through
the process of elimination.
10) Nearly all of the aircraft was recovered by professional investigators and by civilians. The debris was returned to United Airlines after being
examined for evidence of explosives use.
Now, when will you be contacting United Airlines? I again, offer you their information and the contact information of their attorneys.
