This struck me as really strange. Anyone have more info on this?


Yes, I do. There is really nothing strange about it at all.

Lets look at flight 93.

13 of the 33 passengers were not even scheduled on that flight.

So far, in my brief search, 17 of the 33 passengers did not even live in CA. It appears many were going on business, getting connecting flights to overseas..etc.

Linda Gronlund was going on a business trip.

Mark Rothenberg was another passenger from NY traveling to Taiwan.

Toshiya Kuge was on his way back home to Japan.

Colleen Fraser was on her way to a writing seminar.

I think you get the picture here. Might I suggest you go through the passenger lists and figure out what each of them were doing on 9/11.

I will not spend the rest of my morning dealing with people questioning the actions of family members that have just suffered the deaths of their loved ones. Anyone that wants to suggest all the family members are in on it too are simply disgusting.




No one said any such thing.

The idea of family invovlement was brought up by you only.

Feigning disgust to make a point is just that.

It figures you would deflect from the real question.


reply to post by ImAPepper
 


I only asked for names and credentials, because I figured someone would try to twist this into an issue of academic literature once it is realized that more experts are outspoken AGAINST the government story than there are outspokenly in favor of it.


So I counted the names, and no, you didn't list more than are members of those organizations. Sorry. "Truthers" have you beat by the professional numbers. And listing entire organizations is bull crap because Griff was a member of the ASCE, for example, so you can't erroneously try to claim everyone in the ASCE supports the government account just because you haven't heard from them. Most of them are probably entirely ignorant of the issues anyway. I want names of specific people. You should have no trouble if you are really in such a clear majority.

You listed Bazant 3 separate times, Zhou twice, and I didn't even bother looking for redundancies after that because my point is made.

Not to mention most of those papers are hypothetical and/or devoid of any real data whatsoever in the first place. The reason there is a lack of papers coming from the people in these organizations, is the exact reason why they put their names with the organizations in the first place: they realize that a massive amount of information has been neglected and a much more thorough investigation is needed. And again, they outnumber the people you list. Not that it makes any difference by numbers alone at the end of the day, but you can stop parading around like all the experts agree with you now please.

So show us their papers in peer reviewed journal.... Oh, you cannot as nothing they post is of any worth - like the door on flight AA77. That is the quality of their "research"

My response to you is in my last post.

You are moving the goal posts, and to no consequence. There are more experts calling for re-investigation and further study than there are claiming to know anything definite about the collapses, even amongst the papers listed above.

I am still waiting for someone to posts undeniable facts about the OS. So far no one has, I guess this proves the OS is a lie. I was expecting an OS believer and God know there are plenty of them, to come up with something since they defend it day and night yet not one of you are willing to step up to the plate. Must be fun defending a proven lie.

Dereks, you just got owned man..

A wealth of 9/11 information has been provided to you as asked, yet you have provided nothing more than posts that ask for more. Let me ask you, Why has the "9/11 Commission" never answered question brought up by CT's? Huh?

Why was that commission made up of FORMER WHITE HOUSE STAFF and government officials. Yet you continue to shut down the work of top DOCTORS in their respective fields to your silly Official Theory BS.

I can tell you damn sure if I was on a plane and a terrorist stood up to hijack it with BOXCUTTERS I would beat the living @#$%% out of them.

How a man that never flew a 747 was able to hit a perfect crash landing 700ft off the ground (near impossible).

How no planes were scrambled immidiately on that day, whos responsibility laid in the hands of NORAD. May I add that its unprecedented to not send fighter planes in this situation.

How Dick Cheney took control of NORAD 6 months before 9/11 and was the one who KNEW no planes were being scrambled that day. He was in command in the White House Bunker.

How Engineers, Scientists, and Pilots, experts in their fields, can confirm the Jet-A fuel would have completely burned in MAX 20 min, the accepted number is somewhere around 7min. Why did they collapse 2+ hours after it was done burning?

Why do countless fire fighters recall CLEARLY hearing "bang, bang, bang" repeating constantly explosions going off? Right before the collapse?!!!

Why did firefighters and emergency personnel report fire burning in the underground for 99 days!! NOTHING except something as reactive as THERMITE could have burned that long with that intensity. NOTHING MAN NOTHING, find me what material could have possibly been in the plane or the towers that could have burned fires underground for 99 days!

Looks like you gotta face some facts man..

But I must say Thank You,

Your ignorance has inspired me to write, for the first time in a while.
Hope you can wake up...

Merry Christmas

As proven by the quick intercept of the airliner that flew past its destination and was out of contact with the ground not to long ago. Wait, nobody scrambled to intercept that airliner..........

If you are going to start speaking authoritatively about NORAD, you might want to actually learn a little about the subject....and not from reading conspiracy sites.



Not to mention, if you are going to start off your post commenting on someone being owned....you might want to make sure that your post is based in reality. You failed in that.

(Most common OS supporter "argument")

Please,

answer the other ones and SHOW me the proof otherwise. I mean your so quick to say its BS right, maybe you should open my eyes to this "data" you seem to think I should have.

I just gave you undeniable FACTS of the day, JUST ANSWER MY LAST QUESTION.

On how the firefighters reported burning for 99 days and bombs going off countless times. Surely you can't be implying ALL OF THE NYFD and NYPD are lying, now that son.. is a conspiracy.

Yep, and the two "muscle" hijackers are just going to stand there while you pound them one at a time. Not likely.




How a man that never flew a 747 was able to hit a perfect crash landing 700ft off the ground (near impossible).


Umm, none of the aircraft were 747's. And the pilots involved, at least a few of them, were licensed pilots. In addition, a "perfect crash landing"? Not that hard really, to hit a large building.




How Dick Cheney took control of NORAD 6 months before 9/11 and was the one who KNEW no planes were being scrambled that day. He was in command in the White House Bunker.


Except, he didn't take control of NORAD. I am going to guess you are referring to this Alex Jones gem.........

"....In May of 2001, by presidential order, Cheney was handed direct control of all wargame and drill operations. This meant he was solely in charge of the overlapping NORAD drills and wargames on the morning of 9/11, that prevented Standard Operating Procedure from being implemented, and any of the hijacked planes being intercepted...."

www.prisonplanet.com...


Now, here is the actual Presidential Order.....




Statement by the President
Domestic Preparedness Against Weapons of Mass Destruction





Protecting America's homeland and citizens from the threat of weapons of mass destruction is one of our Nation's important national security challenges. Today, more nations possess chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons than ever before. Still others seek to join them. Most troubling of all, the list of these countries includes some of the world's least-responsible states -- states for whom terror and blackmail are a way of life. Some non-state terrorist groups have also demonstrated an interest in acquiring weapons of mass destruction.

Against this backdrop, it is clear that the threat of chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons being used against the United States -- while not immediate -- is very real. That is why our Nation actively seeks to deny chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons to those seeking to acquire them. That is why, together with our allies, we seek to deter anyone who would contemplate their use. And that is also why we must ensure that our Nation is prepared to defend against the harm they can inflict.

Should our efforts to reduce the threat to our country from weapons of mass destruction be less than fully successful, prudence dictates that the United States be fully prepared to deal effectively with the consequences of such a weapon being used here on our soil

Today, numerous Federal departments and agencies have programs to deal with the consequences of a potential use of a chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear weapon in the United States. Many of these Federal programs offer training, planning, and assistance to state and local governments. But to maximize their effectiveness, these efforts need to be seamlessly integrated, harmonious, and comprehensive

Therefore, I have asked Vice President Cheney to oversee the development of a coordinated national effort so that we may do the very best possible job of protecting our people from catastrophic harm. I have also asked Joe Allbaugh, the Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, to create an Office of National Preparedness. This Office will be responsible for implementing the results of those parts of the national effort overseen by Vice President Cheney that deal with consequence management. Specifically it will coordinate all Federal programs dealing with weapons of mass destruction consequence management within the Departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, Justice, and Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other federal agencies. The Office of National Preparedness will work closely with state and local governments to ensure their planning, training, and equipment needs are addressed. FEMA will also work closely with the Department of Justice, in its lead role for crisis management, to ensure that all facets of our response to the threat from weapons of mass destruction are coordinated and cohesive. I will periodically chair a meeting of the National Security Council to review these efforts.

No governmental responsibility is more fundamental than protecting the physical safety of our Nation and its citizens. In today's world, this obligation includes protection against the use of weapons of mass destruction. I look forward to working closely with Congress so that together we can meet this challenge


White House Press release, May 2001

Nothing in there about being in control of NORAD. Its about dealing with the aftermath of an WMD attack against the United States. Now, why would the Vice President be in charge of the Situation Room at the White House when the President is out of town? You should be able to figure that out. And since we know that planes WERE scrambled that day......




How Engineers, Scientists, and Pilots, experts in their fields, can confirm the Jet-A fuel would have completely burned in MAX 20 min, the accepted number is somewhere around 7min. Why did they collapse 2+ hours after it was done burning?


Well your "experts" are being arrogant if they are stating without doubt that all the fuel would have been completely burned in 20 minutes. Ask anyone who has attended an aircraft firefighting school. But I will grant you that the majority of the fuel burned off in 20-30 minutes. At that point, however, everything else was burning within the impact areas (furniture, desks, carpets, floor tiles etc). Then, you might want to recheck how short a time it was before the towers collapsed.....




Why did firefighters and emergency personnel report fire burning in the underground for 99 days!! NOTHING except something as reactive as THERMITE could have burned that long with that intensity. NOTHING MAN NOTHING, find me what material could have possibly been in the plane or the towers that could have burned fires underground for 99 days!


Well considering that there are places on Earth that have had underground fires burning for YEARS.... More assumption on your part. There was a frigging underground mall under the towers full of combustible materials, not to mention air coming into the bottom of the pile from the subway tubes to feed the fires. (thermite burning for 99 days...LOL)

Okay, I addressed a few more of your points.........

Not twisting at all. It upsets you that not one of your so called "experts" that speak out have ever written anything that was appropriately peer reviewed.

Opinions mean nothing when it comes to science.

You counted the names of the authors. Nice job. Now, tell me:

How many engineers did it take to peer review these papers ?

How many people attended these conferences?

You seem to have a thing for Griff and his opinion. IIFC, Griff wanted to take his name off A&E for Gage being deceptive. I also recall Griff stating that the NIST report on 1 & 2 was possible to have happened the way explained in their report.
