    You said it was a false flag attack, which by nature means America was behind it. Unless you're going really nuts and blaming Israel.

    There's a reason why I never venture into the Conspiracy Theory section. This is a reminder why.

    Dear doG, can someone please stop the 9/11 truther madness and get back to this story?

    This is your quote. You're surely insinuating as much...
    There are so many factual problems with the official story regarding the events of the day at WTC and elsewhere that it simply cannot be true. Not trying to hijack or derail the thread. It's just a straight answer.

    So if the story cannot be true, it is not true. It cannot be proved that any aircraft were hijacked that day, and 2 of the 4 were not even where they were supposed to be.

    No sir, AQ was not "behind" the attacks, though it is certainly possible that they played along with their previous handlers. I don't know the details because I wasn't in on it.
    I would love to hear how your "aviation perspective" lead you to the conclusion that "al Qaeda was not behind the attacks".

    I say again Hammer, for the comprehension impaired: "The story is impossible, it is not true".

    Further, it's off topic.

    What do you think of Bergdahl's disillusionment with the war he was in?

    Can we give him just long enough to explain how his "aviation perspective" gives him such insight into 9-11. His claimed expertise peeked the commercial pilot side of me.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/05/wo...dier.html?_r=0

    "KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban released a video on Wednesday showing its fighters handing over Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to American troops, providing a direct look at a moment in the Afghan war that has prompted relief in some quarters but has drawn sharp criticism in Afghanistan and Washington.

    Sergeant Bergdahl is seen in the video wearing traditional Afghan robes, and his face and head appear to have been recently shaved. For much of the video, he is seen waiting in a silver and red pickup truck surrounded by Taliban fighters armed with assault rifles and at least one rocket-propelled grenade launcher, standard armaments for the insurgents. The faces of many of the Taliban fighters are covered by scarves.

    As an American Blackhawk helicopter approaches, one of the insurgents is heard telling Sergeant Bergdahl: “Don’t come back to Afghanistan. If you do, you won’t make it out alive next time.” Other insurgents standing nearby laugh at the warning.

    Then the helicopter lands and Sergeant Bergdahl is handed over to Americans wearing civilian clothes. The Americans quickly lead him away, patting him down and casually dropping a plastic shopping bag he was holding. They board the helicopter and fly off.

    Much of the video clip’s audio track consists of an interview with one of the Taliban fighters who is described as having taken part in the handover. He talks about the arrangements that were made with the Americans, and then narrates how the American forces arrived by helicopter, with warplanes circling in the sky above. At times, the camera shifts from the Taliban fighters and Sergeant Bergdahl to show aircraft overhead. If the Taliban fighter’s account is accurate, the video adds new details to what had been reported about the transfer, which took place on Saturday in the eastern province of Khost."

    He doesn't seem to want to. And reading his conspiracy theory posts makes my teeth hurt.

    I'm lost anyway how we got from this soldier to the WTC anyway.

    My "aviation perspective" and your unwillingness to answer tells me you're clueless.

    As far as Bergdahi, at first sight, I don't like it, but I'm not in the know. I'm going to wait and let this play out before I draw any conclusions.

    If we end up covertly killing these 5 war criminals in Qatar, I give it 5 jalapeños (good job)! If they don't kill these bastards...I don't like it, but I don't have to like everything all the time.
