I've been coming to this website for about two years, and enjoyed reading many interesting threads. Recently I began participating in the discussions.
Anyway this is my first thread.
I lived in Brooklyn NY on 9/11, although thankfully none of my friends and family were killed or injured by the attacks, like most New Yorkers this
subject is very close to home. I didn’t question the events of that day for many years, I didn’t even know that there were any controversy
surrounding the official explanation. It seemed simple, terrorists hate us, so they used airplanes as weapons and killed 3000 people, and destroyed
the Twin Towers. I didn’t know about WTC 7 at all.
Then one day I met a guy at work who used to be a mechanic at American Airlines, and we were talking about random things, and he said that after 9/11
the airline industry was on a decline and many people were loosing their jobs, etc. But then he said that a lot of people think that 9/11 was an
inside job, and that he thought that is crazy. I remember specifically he said “ I can assure anyone the airplanes were destroyed on 9/11". The idea
of an inside job sounded crazy to me as well, so I Googled it.
Anyway that's how I started reading up on the subject.
In my research I came across a lot of very disturbing things regarding 9/11, Foreign Policy, and Politics in general.
I don't know what happened that day as far as control demolition, or any one of the other theories out there. What I do know tho is that the
government is actively covering up the events leading up to 9/11, and on 9/11, and the reality that we are living in today (wars, economic distress,
loss of our liberty in the name of safety) is for the most part a result of 9/11.
I don’t know if it was an inside job, but for me to believe the official story I would need a time machine so I can travel back to the day I met
this guy at work, and call in sick.
I'm reading a book written by FDNY Paramedic Supervisor, it's called The Downwind Walk. In the beginning of the book he describes that on September 8
2001 the office of emergency management had a drill at LaGuardia airport called Operation Low Key which is according to him a yearly drill for code
10-40 confirmed plane crash.
I'm not making any accusations, this is just a question.
I can't find any information on this type of drills before or since 2001. I’m wondering if anyone know if this type of drill is always conducted
around this time of the year, or is this just a coincidence?
