Submitter, I had a view of that thread from my office chair on 1/31, and I don't think you really appreciate how traumatic that was.
 
2012-07-10 04:40:31 PM
IIRC, the book was mentioned in the article linked to the original thread.

Eh, standard Evangelical "spiritual warfare" influenced tripe.

I was at a coffee shop in Alpharetta on 9/11. Everyone's mobile phone began ringing immediately after the first impact. The guy that was with me INSISTS that angels had something to do with it.

What the hell could she have to say about it for a whole book? I mean... can't it be summed up in about one single sentence.

"I saw angels around the crash site."

But somehow that will become some long drawn out story of religious fealty because... aren't they all?
 
2012-07-10 06:09:39 PM
So did these angels get their asses kicked by demons or something? I thought they were guardians.

Since we're doing where we were, I was in jail reading Dale Brown's "Storming Heaven" having discussed the security afforded by 12 inch thick cast in place concrete walls in the even of a nuclear attack on the big city 40 miles away.

From last time we had this thread

OgreMagi: She was the first on the scene. PTSD can do funny stuff to a person's memory. No, I don't think she actually saw angels. I do think she genuinely thinks she saw angels.

Exactly what I was thinking. Oh, and do we have verification that she was a) an FBI agent on 9/11 and b)that she was on the scene?

They were too busy helping a prima donna wide receiver practice his fly route to prevent four thousand deaths. God has priorities and a vig to recoup, man.

Here Subby,
Watching those planes get grounded for the greater good, though only after terrible destruction was the motivation you needed to finally kick your decade long smack habit. the book is about the habit and the recovery and how you see the entire 9/11 event as a metaphor.

\you're welcome.

It's probably because I'm not a paying member.

i watched bush run away to nebraska on 9/11. I stood in the parking lot of work smoking a cigarette and watching airforce one land, all the while shouting "get out of here, you dummy! go away! go somewhere else!"

can i get an agent? a witness? a farkin' CLUE!?!?

It may have been a miracle that you could all get a signal in that location.

Just a guess.

The original thread mentioned the book, too.

Not shocked.
 
2012-07-10 09:53:01 PM
Was this woman even an agent? She worked as a Community Relations officer--she was a media specialist.

That's not the same thing, according to my brief perusal of the FBI website, as what most people think of when they see "FBI agent." Also according to her own bio, she left that office in 2010. It took nine years for her PTSD to kick in? Or was it that she had her ten years and qualified for her pension?

She's a weirdo, there's no doubt about it.

Here's another question I've been pondering - what is all this shiat about angels? Have you heard this? Three out of four people belive in angels. What are you people, farkin stupid? Has everybody lost their mind? You know what I think it is? I think it's a massive, collective, psychotic chemical flashback for all the drugs smoked, swallowed, shot, and obsorbed rectally by all Americans from 1960 to 1990. Thirty years of street drugs will get you some farking angels, my friend!

Did you ever notice how in the Bible, when ever God needed to punish someone, or make an example, or whenever God needed a killing, he sent an angel? Did you ever wonder what a creature like that must be like? A whole existence spent praising your God, but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel?

I'd really like the read the book about how the only thing the government has ever accomplished in the shortest amount of time was cleaning debris from a plane crash out in the middle of nowhere.

How long did it take to clean up the world trade buildings? Four years?

How long did it take to respond to katrina victims? 4 days?

How long did it take to set up the 9/11 commission? 13 months?

Whoever was on that government crew should be promoted for being the only government agency in history to have their shiat together.

It could be they were union angels. It was a busy day and so many of them were already working overtime.

Of course, the really amusing thing to me (re "angel sightings") is that they're always fair attractive winged humanoids (with two wings)...

...whereas most of the actual descriptions of angels in the Bible at best tend to describe them appearing like something that Gendo Ikari would send a bunch of teenagers out in EVA units to swat down and more often can be described as "nightmare fuel derived from a very bad mushroom trip".

(Yes, I'm serious. Neon Genesis farking Evangelion is closer to actual Biblical descriptions of angels than the average "angel sighting". This actually never ceases to amuse me.)

/no, seriously, I want to see someone claim an "angel sighting" and note the angel looked like some six-winged lion with a human face
//or a six-winged pillar of farking fire
///or a shiatload of wheels within wheels within wheels
////or other weird geometric shapes or with hundreds of eyes or similar...

Is this woman a legitimate PTSD case who actually believes she saw angels or just a cynical ex-FBI agent who saw a way to cash out on her way to early retirement?

I can't seem to care either way. It's a little late.

I was working in DC (TechWorld near chinatown) on the 12th floor. Our office had a distant view of the pentagon on 9/11. Had to evacuate. Luckily I was on a motorcycle so I could go around the major jams and snarls. the only way into VA was Int 66. I wound my way over Shirlington and went to bistro bistro just in time to see the first tower fall. I could see the smoke in the air from the pentagon. In shirlington there a pedestrian bridge over I395.The road was closed because it goes right next to the Pentagon. Little bands of people could be seen walking down the highway trying to get home after evacuating. It was post apocalyptic surrealism. I went back to the bar and drank heavily.
