What a blow it would have been if this plane had struck The Capitol or The White House. From the bottom of my heart, I thank the passengers for their bravery.

Color me skeptical, but I don't remember ever seeing or hearing concrete proof of whatever it was that happened on that plane, other than this jingoistic interpretation.

guitarmn--The flight recorders were recovered from the crash site and many of the passengers were able to contact loved ones from cell phones during the seige. I think the events have been fairly well documented; there are credible recordings of much of went on in that plane . Surely you have hears the "Let's roll" story by now?

"There was nothing there". Not looking to persuade anyone but I think that statement says it all. For me anyway.

Can't comment on the Dearborn article...but I am so sick of people shouting racism when those that condemn Islam are involved. Racism involves race, Islam is a religion. One can be racist towards a person, but not because of their religion. Small point, but a pet peeve...

Perhaps this is out of place, but people need to wake up. No plane ever crashed at Shanksville. Look at the pictures. Go on You Tube and look at the video. For the first time in an aviation history there's a crash but there are no wings, no engines, no wheels, no luggage, no bodies, no fire, no fuselage. Look at the picture and ask yourself, where's the plane. It's also very interesting that many people, including FOX news reported on 9/11 that plane fragments can be found 6-8 miles away. Let me repeat that. Fragments from the plane reported by Fox News was found 6-8 miles away. Ask yourself a simple question: How can a plan nosedive into the ground at a 45 degree angle and have parts land 6-8 miles away? It cannot happen. The ONLY way that can happen if the plan was blown out of the sky at a high attitude. It's the ONLY way that can happen. End of Story.
