No strawmans. You are reading into it.

IN fact, the older aerial view photos show fewer obstructions than currently exist. That is nat a straw fact.

Your logic still makes absolutely no sense Weed . . . why would a building or any obstructions at all that were constructed years after the event have any influence on the flight data recorder?


The blue linkys in your response are unconvincing, sorry.

It would take anyone at least an hour to go through all of the things in my links for this thread.

You responded within several minutes. There’s no way you even looked at everything.

What do you think is unconvincing about them?

I’m dieing to hear this, because I know that there is no way in hell that you looked at everything

Now you’re going to be bashing your brain in trying to find a hole in my logic and you won’t.

This should be interesting.


There is NO valid evidence of a "tainted" FDR. Talk about a "strawman"!

That isn’t a straw man at all. You are claiming the FDR is reliable; I’m saying it may be tainted. That has everything to do with your argument.


What has been shown by P4T, in concert with CIT (since they seem to be joined at the hip) is a pattern of obfuscation, misdirection and outright lying when it concerns the FDR.
Those are your opinions, but for arguments sake, let’s forget the FDR, since I would rather not here any more of you ad hominem attacks directed at Citezen InvestigationTeam and Pilots for 9/11 Truth.


AND, the 'Inconvenient Truth" quip was not intended to diminish the tragedy of the Pentagon, nor of the events of that day. Recall, please, that I was acquanted with the First Officer (co-pilot) of American Airlines flight 77, David Charlesbois. Noone's death is alaughing matter, of course.
If they’re actually dead it isn’t.


CIT and P4T, however, are. In the sense that they are ridiculous and, indeed, it is they who are shamelessly stirring the pot and causing pain by their very actions.
Appealing to emotion . . .


And all, it would seem most likely, NOT in the pursuit of any "truth", but instead while chasing the Almighty $$$$$$$$$.

Appeal to motive . . .


Because the truth is lost so often, lately, by the lies and misdeeds of some....
Very true. When you pissed all over their black kettle you must have been high Weed. Pun intended.

Pieces of plane parts are not proof of a plane crash. Try logic next time.

The burden of proof is not on me to prove that something didn’t happen.



In this case it is.

The statement "AA77 hit the Pentagon on September 11 2001" is a priori true or false. You believe it to be false. I am asking that you prove that, which you seem unable to do.




If you are not an OS supporter then you’re wasting my time with semantics.


Absolutely not. I don't acknowledge an OS, so it's you who are using semantics - ones which you and other Truthers have invented. You've brought a term into the debate which only you consider valid.


If you are genuinely looking for the truth, read the thread in its entirety.
...Good luck.



You've completely dodged the question by demanding that I stay within the parameters of the thread. This may be good internet forum practice - in which case I'm happy to start another thread - but it isn't going to help you with the logic of your position.

Once more:

I surmise from this thread that you believe the statement "AA77 didn't hit the Pentagon" to be true.

I require proof in order to believe you. That is all.



This thread is about the OS and it’s supporters having no ground to stand upon. So if you are not concerned with the OS why are you here?


As I say I will happily start another thread if you like, or debate you in another medium. As I have also said, I don't believe in something called the "OS". Your evidence for its existence remains on the level of bare assertion.



Because you are the one demanding I provide negative proof when the burden is theirs. I never said that the OS and its supporters are you friend. They would be the equivalent of “your friend” in the analogy. There is a difference.


I'm aware of that. I clearly meant "why is the "OS and its supporters" my friend in the analogy?"



So? That has nothing to do with the discussion. You are making a bare assertion fallacy that they are my "friend" and therefore implying that I have some responsibility for their pronouncements.

Um I would have to make the assertion before you could call it bare. I never said that the OS supporters are your “friend” nor did I imply you have “responsibility for their pronouncements.”


Then the analogy falls down, because the relationship of "OS Supporters" to me in real life is not equivalent to the "friend" and "me" in the analogy. Indeed I'm struggling to see why you even introduced it.




I posed a question for OS believers and you responded. If you are not an OS believer, then I was never addressing you to begin with. It is no fault of mine that you misrepresented yourself.


I don't believe there is such a thing as an "OS Believer". You are tilting at windmills.

It's the equivalent of me asking you to account for the use of lasers from space to destroy the WTC. You may protest that you don't believe it, and I can point you to parts of the 9/11 Truth movement that do. You would then protest that there is no single "TM". In the same way I don't consider there to be a single "OS".

It's simply a convenient lumping together of various reports, investigations and MSM articles and broadcasts which allows people like you to protest at inconsistencies between them. "If it's an Official Story it should be consistent", runs your logic, conveniently forgetting that you invented the notion of an Official Story in the first place.

Furthermore, you are not the only one who gets to "pose questions". I am posing one of you now, and you remain unable to answer it.

You would have no choice in the matter. You need ME for there to be a WE. So If I decide to no longer speak with you. WE are done here and now.


Which would strongly suggest to me that you have no evidence.


"There is an Official Story regarding the events 9/11"

is true.

Prove it.


You do realize that Official Story is synonymous with “The story supported by the National Transportation Safety Board, Mainstream News Media (The Times, Fox News, NBC etc.), The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, and various other government organizations.”?


Yes. But I don't consider those bodies to constitute a single voice or to agree on all aspects. You simply pretend that they do so you can slay a dragon that doesn't exist.

Furthermore you say it is "The story supported by...". You use a definite article, meaning that the "story" must exist independently of its supporters - they are, after all, merely supporters of it, not the source of it - so where does it exist? Where can I read summary?

Let me give you another example. Here is an article from the Guardian which suggested that Bush was warned about the 9/11 attacks weeks before they happened.

www.guardian.co.uk...

This is in stark contrast to your "OS", and yet the Guardian is a British national newspaper, an integral and traditional part of the MSM. If people within the Official Story can't even get the Official Story straight then it is not evidence that that story is flawed - rather it suggests that it doesn't exist.




Unless you believe that these organizations had no opinion regarding 9-11. I have just proved that there is an Official Story.


Bare assertion again.

Russell was arguably the eminent logician of his time, so not exactly obscure. His Principia Mathematica is one of the most important works on mathematical logic ever. He was indeed also "into metaphysics". But you might find his more accessible work on the application of logic to human problems quite interesting.

Actually, I'm not an OS supporter, but the evidence is overwhelming in regards to the flight path of AAL77. If radar data from 4 ASR and 3 ARSR radar sites is not 'reliable evidence', then I guess there is none. If changes in the long and lateral acc in the FDR corresponding to pole strikes is not 'reliable evidence', then what can I say? Not to mention the vast majority of eyewitness accounts supporting the physical damage at the scene in the conclusion of a plane hitting the Pentagon.

So yeah, in the twisted 'fly over' mindset, there is no such thing as 'reliable evidence'. But the 'evidence' would win in Court (already has), so I guess forum talk is cheap.


This is where the truth lies. In careful examination of the physical evidence, examination of the radar data, teasing out more and more information from the FDR.

It pains me that 911 files can make a post amongst all this useless verbiage and it is virtually ignored in the haste to post some speculative rubbish.

So truthers, if you are indeed seeking truth, what do you think of the radar data, what do you think of the new data from AA 77's FDR. Do you care ?

Again....not sure where this jumped the shark. I had thought that somewhere, somebody NOW is looking at Google Map NOW and saying that the buildings there that they see NOW somehow "prove" that the FDR was invalid. I should have made that more clear, I suppose.

So, even though I thought I said it clearly enough the first time, will say again, using different words: It appears, from the aerial photos shown that date from the months just AFTER 9/11 attacks, the lack of obstructions seen TODAY indicates that the argument that some have made based on what they see TODAY is invalid.

Capisce?

You may find it surprising, but I actually HAVE been reading along on this thread, for a while. I choose to post only occasionally.

Not sure which of your many blue linkys are broken, but one of the web posts you linkyed to had a few that went nowhere...might be a new development.


You are claiming the FDR is reliable; I’m saying it may be tainted. That has everything to do with your argument.


I wonder if I should refer you to the FDR thread. The discussion there is far more involved than we can get into here, and that would be duplication anyway...and urinating into a strong wind, to boot.

But, just in a nutshell: Since you have now laid the claim that a Flight Data Recorder may somehow have "tainted" information, it is encumbent upon you to find any source, example, anything at all to support that claim. There are many, many instances of FDR data being published (from other accidents/incidents), and much is on the Web. If you could find just one case where the data was called into question, then your claim would merit some examination. Otherwise? Bupkis.

Oh...while researching, an additional place to look would be the manufacturers. (Honeywell or Fairchild, to name two).

Credible evidence for AA77 striking the Pentagon:
Physical damage and fuel fire.


If it's credible, I think you should be able to answer all of the following questions:
1- Where's the bulk of AA 77s massive wings? For that matter, why was there so little airplane debris in general?
2- Why did the wings not damage the pentagon?
3- Probably most important of all, if all the North of citgo gas station witnesses are correct, how can you account for -all- of the physical damage, since none of it lines up with such a flight path?

Concerning the fuel fire, could not the generator tank account next to the pentagon account for it?


Originally posted by pteridine
Aircraft parts consistent with the aircraft.


I've heard from PFT that an engine allegedly found there was -not- that of a 757. Furthermore, why was none of the debris positively identified as coming from AA 77?



Originally posted by pteridine

DNA evidence can be planted. Do you have any evidence that it wasn't? For that matter, do you know who, precisely, picked up this evidence?


Originally posted by pteridine
No evidence of high explosives, evidence planting, or collusion.


There was atleast one witness who smelled cordite. I know you have claimed that it was something else they smelled, but you have presented no evidence that this was in fact the case.


Originally posted by pteridine
Lack of alternate explanations consistent with the above.


I maintain that the flyover theory eliminates the need to explain any of the above questions I've posed, as the whole thing was just staged to make it -look- like the plane crashed there. Perhaps more importantly, it also explains all those north of the citgo flight path witnesses.

1.The wings went with the airplane. See witness statements posted previously. Airplane debris was scattered and airplane pieces were found outside and inside the Pentagon.
2.The wings did damage the Pentagon. 911review.com...

3.Obviously, the NOC witnesses must be in error or their testimony was distorted by CIT.

The generator tank could not account for the fire. The tank that was struck was small and was burning outside. How did thousands of gallons of fuel get inside?

PFT is wrong. See Catherder’s thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...

DNA evidence can be planted. Do you have evidence that it was? I don't know who picked up the remains. Are you a voyeur like some other members who want to see pictures and then demand to know who the poor soul was? Try this: NOC witnesses can be bought. Can you prove that they weren't?

One witness claims to have smelled “cordite.” Cordite is a smokeless nitrocellulose based propellant and burned cordite smells of nitrogen oxides, not surprisingly. Indoor shooting ranges and power plants smell of nitrogen oxides. Nitrogen oxides are common in high temperature fires and form from combustion air. Read up on stack gas scrubbers for the details. The witness would have no way of knowing the source of the nitrogen oxides. The only way to prove explosives would be to find physical evidence of explosives. None was found here or at the WTC.

Why are you basing everything on the NOC witnesses who provide the least accurate information by estimating a flight path? What about the NOC witnesses who say a the plane hit the Pentagon? Are they correct at guessing a flight path and wrong about where they watched the plane fly? All the other evidence supports a plane striking the Pentagon.

Please provide a rationale of why there would have to be such a tortuous plot when crashing a plane into the building is much easier.

Yeah, I get it, but I believe you have been misinformed; No one to my knowledge has made an argument based on what you are saying. That’s why I said it’s a straw man.

Well at least that’s believable.

I wonder if I should refer you to the FDR thread. The discussion there is far more involved than we can get into here, and that would be duplication anyway...and urinating into a strong wind, to boot.
I’m not a pilot nor am I able to interpret a FDR.



But, just in a nutshell: Since you have now laid the claim that a Flight Data Recorder may somehow have "tainted" information, it is encumbent upon you to find any source, example, anything at all to support that claim.
I never said that the FDR was tainted. I said that it may be tainted. There is a difference. The logic behind why it may be tainted is the NTSB would have a conflict of interest in regards to releasing authentic data, if indeed the government was involved in the attacks.




There are many, many instances of FDR data being published (from other accidents/incidents), and much is on the Web. If you could find just one case where the data was called into question, then your claim would merit some examination. Otherwise? Bupkis.
Other examples are not needed. Conflict of Interest. That is enough reason to doubt the authenticity of the FDR.



Oh...while researching, an additional place to look would be the manufacturers. (Honeywell or Fairchild, to name two).
Not needed.

Thanks for your input.

Of course you're talking about the plane crash at the Pentagon on 9/11.

These people are talking about some bizarre fairy tale they truly believe happened that day - cooked up by people who've never been 50 miles from home and couldn't figure out what happened if someone dropped a bomb on the house next door. They'd think it was some government scheme.

Sounds like you're afraid to find out to me.

Data is about quality, not quantity by the way.

Do you believe Lloyde England's cab was impaled by a light-pole as the result of a 757 hitting it?



I can answer this question and provide reliable proof. Can you? Does any of your FIVE HUNDRED GIGS of data give you the answer to this question?

Since you won't go to the link, I guess the link will have to come to you. I'll give you Rob Balsamo's take on it:

If a wingtip did hit that pole at 500 mph, impacting more than half the diameter of the pole as the photo suggests, do you really think there would just be a scuff and no dent?
...

By the way, if they... view the links we provided in the other thread [I can't remember what thread he was referring to, but video coming up], they would realize the final heading has the VDOT pole well within the wingspan. In other words, the VDOT pole should have been toast! The heading doesn't contact pole 2 either... If we incorporate Pitch and bank, the aircraft doesn't hit anything. The people... are cherry picking heading and disregarding all other data. If they use heading, they have to use pitch and bank as well. This is an airplane, not a car.

Instead of posting a link this time since people refused to click it last time... here is the video itself...

The north of citgo witnesses themselves, ofcourse. And evidence of staging the physical evidence found is also strong evidence. There was also a story at PFT that some people were trying to sell AA 77 -years- after the event. Quite doable if the plane never crashed into the pentagon.

911files that was a troll like post. You think JPhish has no clue? Well then step up and debate. Good to hear you have plenty of information, it is def quality over quantity in this situation.

JPhish, I have been occasionally popping into this thread to watch you tear the OS crew apart. Mad respect, it has been entertaining, educational and at times awesomely brutal. Better a cruel truth than a gentle lie.

It has been good to see this ATS BIG thread continue. It has allowed for a clear divide between the two sides and exposed debating skills or lack thereof.

There has been some great posts from both camps but I would have to say that it appears the OS believers have been coming up a bit short and shying away from the heavy questions. That was a slightly biased view, given with an attempted emphasis on impartiality.

IMO, 9/11 screams INSIDE JOB. The PentaCon is a huge part of it but when you combine that with all of the other evidence it becomes quite obvious.

Great thread, great posting, and great skills all round. Keep it real and let the truth be known. Peace

Many, many pages and a lot of electrons have been wasted about this, and yes, this is NOT the FDR thread, but it relates to the problem for CIT's crediblity.

...The track over the ground, when aligned with the impact point, shows that north of the gas station is fantasy.


Personally, I believe that the FDR data was fabricated. But as mentioned in the past, the FDR data isn't my strong point; I see JP has responded to your post on one of your points, however. I'm more into the witnesses, Lloyd England in particular.

Any 'eyewitness' testimony saying otherwise (and, again...only certain peoples' testimony were included...anything different from the desired result was rejected by CIT)


I believe they showed that most of the witnesses were consistent with a North of Citgo flight path; there were a few that weren't, but I believe their credibility is highly suspect.

...any 'north of Citgo' testimony is probably in error, whether from faulty memory, msleading (and leading) questioning, or point-of-view and perspective issues, depending on the person involved.


I don't agree with this...

It's important to note that many, many other people, NOT part of the small handful that CIT trot out, saw the airplane hit the Pentagon.


CIT has covered all the witnesses of note, not just the ones they interviewed. Here is their complete list of alleged witnesses:
Witness List Broken Down, No such thing as 104 "impact" witnesses

With their own eyes. This fact tends to get shoved aside, when the CIT and P4T proclaim loudly so many different scenarios...they have so many, by now, that I've lost track. I think they have too....


I only recall 2- that a missile hit the pentagon was one that PFT had considered for a while, but since then, it's essentially been that the plane didn't hit the pentagon. CIT and many within PFT believe the plane flew over, but some refuse to comment on what became of the plane if it didn't, in fact, crash into the pentagon.

ETA, member 'JPhish' has conveniently supplied good visuals, in just a few posts up, to help picture what I mean about the ground track geometry.


I see JP's responded to that point of yours...

1.The wings went with the airplane.


I have seen very little alleged wing debris, and none of it has been confirmed as coming from a 757. Why do you suppose that is?

There's a lot of posts, and I'm not sure what you'd have me looking for...

Airplane debris was scattered and airplane pieces were found outside and inside the Pentagon.


Mostly the size that you could pick up by hand; in other words, the type that could easily be planted and easily removed. Don't you find this atleast slightly suspicious?

2.The wings did damage the Pentagon. 911review.com...


From your link:

One deficiency of analyses purporting to show that a 757 impact could not have produced the observed damage to the Pentagon is a failure to take into account the blast hardening of the facade. The nature of that hardening remains, like all information about the structural composition of the buildings attacked on 9/11/01, the subject of considerable uncertainty. For example, if the windows were composed of thick carbonate panes, they may have been able to repel lighter fragments of the plane without breaking. Nonetheless, the apparently unscored limestone in the supposed path of the wing ends and tail section seem difficult to reconcile with such a crash. However, if [emphasis mine] these portions of the jetliner were destroyed just before impact, as proposed by French researcher Eric Bart, it is conceivable that they would have been reduced to small debris so as to leave no impression on the facade. Meanwhile the punctured areas of the facade were large enough to admit the vast majority of the aircraft into the building.


Your site offers no evidence that that 'if' was true. If it's not, even your site makes it clear that the lack of damage to the windows is highly suspect.

3.Obviously, the NOC witnesses must be in error or their testimony was distorted by CIT.


I strongly disagree. I think that the NOC witnesses are mortal to the official story; I really don't understand how you can see it differently.

The generator tank could not account for the fire. The tank that was struck was small and was burning outside. How did thousands of gallons of fuel get inside?


Here I admit I don't have an answer.

It seems to have stopped, but I took a look at the last 2 posts. Have you? Here they are:

DNA evidence can be planted. Do you have evidence that it was?


No, I don't. My point is that there is no evidence that it wasn't. A proper investigation would have carefully scrutinized if this might have occured. Do you have any evidence that this was done?


Originally posted by pteridine
I don't know who picked up the remains. Are you a voyeur like some other members who want to see pictures and then demand to know who the poor soul was?


I have heard it was a team. If a team, or a member or 2 of this team -did- plant evidence in various forms, be it DNA or plane debris, wouldn't you want to know about it?



Originally posted by pteridine
Try this: NOC witnesses can be bought. Can you prove that they weren't?


Think about motive; why on earth would anyone -want- to do that? As to why someone would want to cover up the fact that various elements of 9/11 were an inside, I think the motive for such a thing is obvious, don't you? Since there's a potential motive, there's that much more of a reason to investigate to find out whether or not it happened.

One witness claims to have smelled “cordite.” Cordite is a smokeless nitrocellulose based propellant and burned cordite smells of nitrogen oxides, not surprisingly. Indoor shooting ranges and power plants smell of nitrogen oxides. Nitrogen oxides are common in high temperature fires and form from combustion air. Read up on stack gas scrubbers for the details. The witness would have no way of knowing the source of the nitrogen oxides.


My point is that he believed he smelled cordite, which adds another piece of evidence that lends support to the theory that explosives were used.


Originally posted by pteridine
The only way to prove explosives would be to find physical evidence of explosives. None was found here or at the WTC.


As far as I know, you're right that no explosive residues were found at the pentagon; but then, do you have any evidence that anyone ever looked to see if any residues could be found? Over at the WTC buildings, NIST admits it never looked for such residues, claiming that there was no evidence that they had been used. Meanwhile, lots of explosive residues, in the form of unexploded nanothermite, was found by independent investigators at the WTC buildings. If NIST truly wanted to uncover the truth, don't you think that atleast -after- explosive residues had been found by these independent investigators, they should have gone back and looked for explosive residues from the debris they still had?

Why are you basing everything on the NOC witnesses who provide the least accurate information by estimating a flight path?


Why do you believe that the NOC witnesses provide the least accurate information? And as to why they would have staged this scenario instead of just crashing into the building, I'm not sure. However, I asked for theories in a thread I started over at PFT back in February, and got some interesting responses:

It's good enough to convict people murder, especially if you can show MOTIVE and MEANS, which we know are both present in spades!

Instead of dealing with the evidence, you go into your opinion and speculation. Debating you guys on the CIT foolishness would be like debating a 5 year old about Santa Claus. You argue subjective opinion, not objective facts.


Alternately amusing, spooky, disturbing dealing with people who truly think if they close their eyes to whatever conflicts with their beliefs their wish will come true. Religious faith here not data analysis.

As more and more information and data has come in to look at, we're now just dealing with the last holdouts suspending reality to keep the Inside Job myth alive. I noted they're like the Japanese soldiers on found on Pacific islands in the 50s who didn't know WWII was over. Never surrender.

They'll continue to get outraged and indignant when you point out the facts claiming it's faked.

Even kids figure things out after a while. Not these guys.
