Interesting how they just know what happened on a flight where everyone died and the 'black' boxes weren't (officially) recovered and the last radio contact that happened at 8:13 am was routine.

Come on people, you're being bullshiatted. One way or another someone is lying somewhere.

Lady Indica: Wow, never heard this story. Hope it also shuts up the 'why didn't more fight back' crowd.


That peaked with Virginia Tech, I think, where you had fairly big-name pundits floating the idea that the shooter was a deranged madman, but the REAL criminals were the pampered students who, when they heard gunfire, failed to spontaneously pour out in to the hallways, forming flying wedges and trying to crush the shooter under the weight of their dead bodies.

Compare that with Fort Hood, where most of the "fight back" crowd directed their anger at the seekrit commie mooslim president who was single-handedly responsible for the policy that meant every file clerk and swimming instructor on the base didn't have an M60 slung over their backs.

Or Aurora, where they blamed the theater's no-weapons policy, but mostly talked amongst themselves about the interesting tactical challenges of taking down an armored shooter using gas grenades in a noisy and crowded theater. (Consensus: they'd all still have put a bullet square between his eyes inside of three seconds.)

I kept waiting for the Breitbart.com article about how those little snots at Newtown should have grabbed that shooter's ankles, instead of hiding in closets like cowards, but it never came. Well, there were a few posts along the lines of "whoa, what's with all this fuss over the dead teacher who shielded her kids with her body? If she really loved them, she'd have been packing!" But that was about it.

I'm sorry to say the joy of Monday morning quarterbacking mass tragedies seems to have gone away for a lot of these guys. If you ask me, it was killing bin Laden that really spoiled it. Now how are they supposed to say what they'd have done to him if they ran into him in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot?

There were people on the ground. Those people were in radio communication with two flight attendants during the hijacking. The attendants are dead. The people on the ground are not. The people who are not dead can be interviewed. At that point, they will talk about what they recall of their conversations with the people who are dead.

People have already shown that they won't sit calmly anymore if something happens on a plane. How many stories have there been about some drunk / crazy person losing it on a flight and passengers have taken the matter into their own hands. Plenty.

C'mon! Like, isn't that the average IDF guy's wet dream? On a plane full of terrorists and no holds barred?


Two of my really good friends are ex IDF.  I have seen one literally explain to 7 guys who wanted to kick his ass(because he floored a guy for grabbing his girls tits) that he did not want to fight them he would rather buy them a drink and all be friends, because if they were going to try and fight them his words were "look guys, i am a lover not  a fighter, i also am a krav maga instructor and an Jewish version of Rambo, so if this does go down, someone is probably going to die, and at leat three of you are going to lose an eye and a couple of fingers, on the Ghaza we call that tuesday."  He said that in spanish in Colombia to some young toughs, his eyes were so dead they just left.

Not thinking straight, most likely. It's 3.30am in the UK.

Anyway, I just can't get over the fact that people in the air spoke to people on the ground - and that two air attendants talked about a guy whom they know by name, telling people that he gets killed etc - all the while during a hijacking.

It can't possibly happen now because no hijacker would be able to sneak a large container of mouthwash past security.

Seriously, tho, flight 93, for example, had 33 passengers out of 182 (not counting the 4 evil bastids).  The hijackers had studied flights and deliberately picked ones they expected to be near empty.  When's the last time you were on such a flight?  When's the last time you had so much as a frickin empty seat anywhere near you on a plane?  If the flight will even be half full the airline cancels it and makes up a bullshiat excuse, unless they desperately need that plane at the destination later.

Yes, well ...

Many of the passengers used their cell phones during the hijacking. This was in clear violation of FAA regulations! Then, those airplanes crashed. Now, I'm not saying that the cell phone interference caused the crashes, but there is a heck of a correlation here! I'm just asking questions!

Odds are it was government narrative, a myth, a legend, an emotional manipulation and an intentional leak.  I would find it difficult to believe that a man of such training could be killed by a guy with no where near the hand-to-hand skills armed with a box cutter. The writer of the first memo probably realized this and that's why that story has a gun. But the gun was troublesome in other respects so then they had to back track to being stabbed. That jives with the 'someone in business class was stabbed' statement over the airphone.

Then the question is, why weren't he or others fighting back? Unaware until it was too late? Following standard procedure to have the hijackers land and make demands? Waiting for the right time to strike at the hijackers and not expecting them to crash the plane?

We've had a dozen of years of government made up stories of heroic actions now. It's hard to believe anything that institution spews out in that vein now.

Well, it was (from the articles timeline) about 30 minutes from the hijacking to the impact. "They killed the guy in seat X," doesn't seem that unbelievable to me. This sounds more reasonable though:

Old Man Winter: I suppose I'll get called out as a jackass about this, or told I am diminishing his legacy, but the article added no new information about his death and the 911 Commission Report concluded he was stabbed in his seat immediately as the muscle hijackers made their move.  They speculated it was because he looked like a physical threat, being a larger man. No one reported that he had confronted anyone

It's not like the passengers knew for certain they were all going to die. Maybe if this all happened again it would end differently, but up until that point hijackers were typically trying to flee the country, not kill people or blow up buildings.

That I can appreciate...but the guy's name? Not so much.

The sad part is Heywood got food poisoning from a deli on 63rd street and died 3 weeks later.  That's why most people don't know the truth.

The problem for me is that so many aspects of the official story are obvious lies or just pulled out of some bureaucrat's ass. The cell phone thing never made any sense. They just won't work as far as I know. The vertical distance to the cell tower alone is too far. At that time I was in cellular handset development and the only thing with that kind of range were car kits. They were still made back then for people who drove into the middle of nowhere.

The narrative we are reading about today was probably made up and intentionally leaked. When obvious problems with being shot etc showed it was massaged to jive with airphone conversations with one of the flight attendants. Basically it's a made up story altered to fix a few pieces of hearsay testimony.

It seems that when everything is perfect range can be significantly better than I recall. (wasn't the part I was working in so my memory has failed me)  Perhaps if everything is just right a call might go through but given the speed of the aircraft it wouldn't take long to be out of range of a tower.

leadmetal: The cell phone thing never made any sense.


Most of the calls were airphones, you know, the old swipe the credit card things.  Cell phones indeed work, just not well, and the telecoms hate it when people use them from the air because they'll connect to multiple towers and confuse shiat, or at least in 2001 that was the case.

But yeah, you're probably right, it's a massive conspiracy involving every single person who was called agreeing to lie about someone calling them and saying stuff, who in some cases was the person they loved most in the world and had just died.  That totally is more plausible than some people using existing technology to find out what the fark is going on or say goodbye.

Aidan: I checked this thread just to make sure everything seemed kosher (heheh) before I related the story to my husband. Funny thing is that I said "Well he did X for the internet", but I mispronounced the company name. He corrected me.

So yeah, apparently what Akamai did was a big deal. Good to know.


Actually what Akamia did was "smart" (cause that's what that word means.

Bacontastesgood: I take a bite, and if it's just meh I have no problem A1ing it.  Hell, I'll use BBQ sauce sometimes if it's real crap.  But if it's a perfectly done filet, it's pretty farked up to put anything on it, let's be honest here.


I smoked some hamburgers once for several hours over hickory wood.  They were so damn good not a single person applied a topping or condiment.  Id recommend it if you ever have a chance... just pack it real good or it'll fall apart.

/Only talking about hamburgers because I have those in the fridge... no steak.... :/

super_grass: This is why scum like Manning, Assange, Snowden, and their supporters need to be ridiculed as much as possible. Imagine how many more 9/11s will happen if they got their way and we dismantled our defenses against terrorism?

fark privacy, fark the constitution, I would rather be alive as a slave than be dead and "free".


Why not both, patriot?

Holy shiat. I knew the first guy killed on 9/11 was a former IDF commando trying to handle the situation, but I had no idea he was also an Akamai co-founder. He's like a real-life Forrest Gump. Where wasn't he?
