I think it was shot down by our military....
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld spills the beans in his Freudian slip that he tries to recover from:
All I'm saying is that if passengers on flight 93 managed to rescue the plane from the hijackers in Shanksville, then why did they crash it straight into the ground? Why didn't they at least try to land it upright for a chance of survival? Are you trying to tell me that Bruce Willis and Achmed the Hijacker both had their hands on the wheel at the same time while punching each other and couldn't pull up soon enough? And if for some reason the passengers taking control of the plan from the hijackers is true, then one of the passengers flying the plane committed suicide and mass murder by crashing the plan on purpose to kill everyone on board. Ahh, F#$^ it... let's celebrate the American heroism of the OS!
Debunkers are quick to dismiss Rumsfeld's statement about the missile shooting down the plane by claiming he "misspoke" due to fatigue or what not. Let me just say, "LOL" to that.
I find it quite a stretch for even the feeblest of minds to make the leap from a plane crashing after it's passengers tried to overtake highjackers, to the scenario that the plane was shot down by a missile.
I seem to have misinterpreted your post pretty hard, can you explain that last quote?
Ah yeah I completely agree. But why bother covering it up? I think Colonel Bob Marr put it best, they took some lives in the air to prevent the death of hundreds on the ground.
What I'm saying is that it's hard for me to imagine that a person in Rumsfeld's position could "mistakenly" say that the plane over Pennsylvania was shot down by a missile if the true reason for the crash was passengers trying to overtake highjackers. The two scenarios couldn't be more different, yet there are still who try to make excuses for Rumsfeld by claiming he simply "misspoke."
I think the military was justified in shooting down Flight 93, what do you think?
But yeah, the Shanksville plane crash site is a joke. There were like 4 pieces of debris larger than a phonebook. There was also a secondary debris site 6-8 miles away that was closed off by the FBI, and a witness saw a jet flying away from the crash site. I think it was shot down by our military, and there were members of the military basically admit that it was shot to prevent life on the ground.

The plane in your OP skidded off the runway on landing and everyone lived..
Are you seriously trying to compare the two?
Think man think.
So those reports of the FBI closing off another site were just some conspiracy theorist razzle dazzle? I guess the witness testimony of a fighter jet passing over a guys house just happened to coincide with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld saying that Flight 93 was shot down.
As for secondary debris field - it was in reality only 1 mile away. Composed of paper scraps and insulation,
lightweight materials blown by wind
The 6-8 miles comes from dumb asses who typed location into mapping programs and got "DRIVING
INSTRUCTIONS" - tell me the debris followed the roads there
Really? Because Alex Jones interviewed Col. Donn de Grand and he says some interesting things:
According to cockpit voice recorder passengers were attempting to batter in cockpit door, never actually
got into cockpit. Had killed the hijackers assigned to guard them and were attempting to get into cockpit
to wrest control away from hijackers
At this point hijackers made decision to crash plane rather than lose control
John: And was United Airlines Flight 93 shot down in Pennsylvania by a U.S. or NATO pilot and was that what was supposed to hit the Pentagon?
DGP: No, that was hit at 10:00 hours. It was taken out by the North Dakota Air Guard. I know the pilot who fired those two missiles to take down 93.
John: Was it shot down because the airline pilots actually regained control of the hijacked auto-pilot or was that to replace the unmanned drone that was shot down?
DGP: No, it was the aircraft, you see, had totally unconscious people on board. There were no hijackers. At 9:35, the Happy Hooligans, the Air Guard flying the F-16s were ordered to take that plane out. And they took it out from 9:35 to 10:00..........Well, this is correct, but you see the Adj. General of the State of North Dakota gave the command to take it out. And, by God, they took it out.
