I disagree, the poster simply sounded intelligent, and knows how to think logically.

At this point I can see that no other evidence has come up proving what the OP really seen. I see speculation but no evidence. I will then go with the idea that there was either a mistake or all evidence was eradicated from the web before the thread was made aside from that is the twitter post. It is possible I suppose that all evidence was taken off cyber space and therefore erased forever from history but it is just as likely there was a mistake in the reading.

As another poster mentioned though how many people that have heard of ATS also use twitter, and are watching/not watching the news that is on at the time and read the tickers either correctly or incorrectly. I think either way rather if the reading was correct or not that the likelihood of such people are fewer than most would guess. Say one thousand people saw the news at that time. Then say that of those people 800 of them read the ticker. Then think of the number of people that use twitter as close to 700 then guess the number of people that have heard of ATS. All of those numbers are a guess and they could go either way. But for each thing you add the number of people that could be included lowers in some cases greatly.
Hello all - After spending the past several hours muddling through all 56 pages of posts in this thread, I would like to propose a few points that have not been previously addressed:
It does seem that the most likely scenario here is that the OP and her grandmother were simply mistaken as to what it was they thought they were reading on the FOX News ticker - HOWEVER:
No one seems to have uncovered evidence for ANY ticker line from the appropriate time period that could readily account for such a mis-read. Yes, there has been speculation involving news stories from the approximate time frame which discussed what al Qaeda might do if Bin Laden was killed, but I did not see anyone state that they had actually seen such words appear in a news ticker crawl, and, despite the fact that several people have been unsuccessfully searching online sources for evidence of the OP's alleged ticker, no one has reported finding any other ticker lines that might have been misconstrued in the manner under discussion
FURTHERMORE, if there had been a ticker on FOX News that was worded in such a way that could be so readily misconstrued by the OP and her grandmother, it seems likely that a large number of other people would have made the same mistake. Thus, we should be just as likely to find some evidence for a "collective mis-read" as we would for mass reports of the genuine article.
In other words, at this point there doesn't seem to be any definitive evidence for either the ticker line as reported by the OP and her grandmother, or for a similar-but-different ticker line as required for the mis-reading hypothesis. No amount of speculation or personality bashing is going to resolve this issue, but pending more solid evidence for a mundane explanation let me just say that....
I'm frankly quite surprised that no one in this forum has considered the possibility that the OP and her grandmother were involved in a time slip experience of some sort. All the signs of such an occurrence are there if you would only read between the lines.
