I could see this being real. I had a similar experience. just b/c he's a congressman, actually doesn't mean a whole lot - The majority of those in
Congress do not have special access to anything, especially top secret classified documents unless your on a certain intelligence committee. However,
they may hear rumors or he may form his own opinion - which is quite normal and expected. Its really nothing profound or out of the ordinary. Other
government officials, military personel have come forward in the past as well..
His story is not suspicious. its a personal account. It's hear say and nothing more, nothing less.. grammar doesn't matter either.. And, its
straight to the point and doesn't have to be filled in with so many details either. As how much else could he really say to back up his story unless
he was going to provide a recording or an affidavit from the Congressman.. Granted for such a mind blowing claim, its stil believalbe for a few
reasons.. just b/c its a congressman, doesn't mean he knows what he's talking about.. he just has his opinion like the rest of us..
So, I find it plausable b/c i had a similar experience last summer - I'm on the Amtrak train from Denver to NYC. and its late at night and I find
myself talking to another man in the dining car. he's about my age, similar background, similar age. I will actually post this in another thread b/c
its off topic - but its regarding a conspiracy that began in 1996 - the crashing of that TWA flight over Long Island sound.
So, point is tho.. I can totally see the OP of this thread, having some random conversation with a Congressman who believes that 9/11 was an inside
job. its just the law of averages. of course people who are in our very own government, leaders of this country will question the official story.
It's just bound to happen. Problem is, I doubt this Congressman can offer up any evidence himself... Also, if this story did NOT happen.. It would
rather be naive and just plain stupid for him to use the name of an actual Congressman saying that he believes the attacks were covered up by the very
own government he was elected to lead! which, makes it believable. As if word gets out, some reporter may just call up this Congressman and start
to ask him questions - So, he's either very dumb for making this public, or he's telling the truth. I think he's telling the truth!
********THE one problem I have with his story however, is the account of his mother and having COPD and being denied benefits. I have NO idea where
this Congressman came up with SSDI being some lottery system. I find it ridiculous. I've been on SSDI. Yes, its hard to get. it can actually take
up to 2 years or more b/c of the back log. Having COPD is a very serious condition. Yet, she still can be denied. what she may not have realized is
it can be denied, but you can still fight it and reapply!!! and its very easy to. get a Social Security Disability lawyer just like I did, and he
got it approved. What his mother may or may not have done is provide necessary proof and documents. such as other cases of people who had COPD and
recieved SSDI. Also, medical evidence as to why COPD can prevent her from working - its basic buerocracy and politics and stupid paperwork! its a
shame too!! OR, your mom just may not have worked long enough. Perhaps she worked off the books ... No one is guaranteed SSDI.. You must work long
enough to get the "credits" to then recieve SSDI if that's the case... Typically working on the books, making a certain salary for at minimum 5 years.
Also, each state maybe different too. But, Social Sec. is a federal program where most people can get it "IF" they worked long enough and "IF" they
made enough money!!!!!!!! Also, if she was denied SSDI, she then may have been approved for just basic SSI.
I apologize for not believing in this part of the story - but this actually gives your "Congressman" less credibility!!!! b/c this whole lottery
system is just BS. there maybe some lottery system where they pick applicants at random to process their applications.. But every person I know
thru my support network from being sick and disabled.. ALL of them eventually were approved!!! Those that weren't, were given very specific reasons
such as not having enough credits or income!
