Okay, I have not found a thread on this. If there has been one than I apologize. I know there's alot of different opinions on this board about what
actually brought down flight 93 over PA. Was it the passengers, the Air Force or the Hijackers? I'm not here to tell you what I think because I
really don't know. I would love your veiws on this. Below are different news articles and websites on differet version of what really happened. Now
please note how I'm only quoting exactly what it says off these sites.
Passengers brought down plane
"An FBI official said the crash "appears" to be an act of terrorism, but Pentagon officials firmly denied to ABCNEWS rumors that the U.S. military
shot down the aircraft to prevent it from being crashed into Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, or another government facility."
"Officials said that they believed that the plane took a dip and nose-dived into an abandoned strip mine."
"The plane went down after it was seized by four hijackers on Sept. 11. Some of the 33 passengers and seven crew members are believed to have
struggled with the hijackers, preventing the terrorists from slamming the jetliner into the White House or U.S. Capitol."
"There is little doubt that the passengers on Flight 93 became aware that their hijacked plane was likely to be
used as a terrorist's weapon. The numerous heart-wrenching, last-minute calls are evidence of the passenger's
knowledge of the hijacker's intentions and the subsequent passenger plan to overthrow the hijackers."
"A quiet, grassy field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, was crowded with thousands of mourners today on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Memorial services were held to honor the 40 passengers and crewmembers of United Airlines Flight 93, who died last year while trying to take back the
"The passengers and crew of that flight have been hailed as heroes for challenging their hijackers and apparently keeping their plane from hitting
its intended target."
Airforce brings down plane?
Hijakers bring down plane
"Cockpit tape recordings appear to contradict the popular perception that passengers forced the crash of Flight 93 to avoid the plane being flown
into a landmark building in Washington, they say."
Now having put that information down I was unable to find many sources that state the hijakers or the Air Force brought down the plane. Now I could be
wrong. If you could find some sources out there that would be very much appreciated. Plus, I have not been able to find what the 9/11 commision had to
say in their reports about flight 93. So what is my opinion in all of this? Do I believe the government is responsible? Absolutely not. I honestly
don't know what to believe. All I want to know why there are different reports on what actually brought the plane down and what really brought the
plane. Thank you.
