A new report released on Monday by the Pentagon reveals that some of the unidentifiable remains from victims at the Pentagon and Shanksville sites on September 11th were disposed of in a landfill.

The details come from the findings of a review committee examining operations of the Air Force Mortuaty division at Dover Air Force Base. In the report, it is noted that before 2008, disposal of unidentified remains was delegated of by subcontractors. The guidelines at the time called for the contractors to incinerate the remains and dump the ashes in landfills.

In a press conference earlier this week, Pentagon spokesman John Abizaid confirmed that this section of the report applied to the remains of some of the victims of 9/11.

New Evidence Reveals Half of Pilots Were Only Assigned to 9/11 Flights at the Last Minute

February 10, 2012

Thomas McGuinness, the co-pilot of American Airlines Flight 11 before it became the first plane to be hijacked in the 9/11 attacks, only assigned himself to be on the flight the afternoon before September 11, 2001, and pushed from it the original co-pilot, who had put his name down for the flight less than half an hour earlier. This new information means that, curiously, half of the pilots and co-pilots originally at the controls of the four aircraft involved in the attacks are now known to have been assigned to the doomed flights at the last minute, very shortly before September 11. Additionally, more than half of the flight attendants and many of the passengers are known to have, similarly, not originally been booked onto those flights.

The details of McGuinness’s late assignment to Flight 11 were revealed recently by Steve Scheibner, who was originally going to be the plane’s co-pilot. In a short film released on the Internet just before the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Scheibner described how McGuinness came to replace him on Flight 11 and thereby saved his life.

FLIGHT 11 HAD ‘NO PILOT ASSIGNED TO IT YET’

At the time of the 9/11 attacks, Scheibner was a fundamentalist Baptist pastor and a commander in the Naval Reserves, but he also worked part-time as an on-call pilot for American Airlines. [1] He had been available to fly on September 11. “So at about three o’clock in the afternoon of September 10,” Scheibner recalled, “I sat down at the computer and I logged in like I normally do, to check to see if there was any unassigned flying for the next day. And sure enough there was one trip that was available on September 11. It was American Airlines Flight 11 out of Boston’s Logan Airport to Los Angeles.” Scheibner looked at the flight and could see that “there was no pilot assigned to it yet.”

Scheibner checked if there were any reserve pilots available to take the flight. But, he said, “It just so happened [that] on September 11, 2001, there was only one guy available to go flying on that day and that was me.” He therefore put his name down for Flight 11. He told his wife he would be flying the following day and packed his bags ready for the trip.

Lorie Van Auken joins us and shares with us her reflections ten years on about the events of 9/11 and her loss. She discusses the still- classified 28 pages of the JICI dealing with terrorist financing, the 9/11 families’ stalled lawsuit to bankrupt the terrorists and the direct interventions by the White House to protect the Saudi regime against the justice-seeking families, and the many uninvestigated questions and facts covered up by the 9/11 commission. She questions our current many-fronted wars and the senselessness of the occupation of and our military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan with Saddam Hussein and Bin Laden both dead, while our economy is crashing here at home.  Ms. Van Auken talks about the three versions of the NORAD timeline, the passage of the Patriot Act as a vehicle to erode our civil liberties, NSA’s illegal wiretapping of our domestic communications under the guise of security, and more!

Report: Bush Thought United Flight 93 was Shot Down on 9/11

October 29, 2010

Is Bush preparing for the inevitable? –  A new 9/11 investigation…

The preface I have offered below is from the Complete 9/11 Timeline at History Commons.

So what did the Commander in Chief do with the knowledge that the United States was under attack?

He did nothing.

Bush did not say one word. He did not ask Card any questions. He did not give any orders. He did not know who (or which country) was attacking, whether there would be more attacks, what military plans had been taken, what military actions should be taken—indeed, he knew virtually nothing about what was going on outside the room. He just sat there. Bush later recalled: “There was no time for discussion or anything.” [Fighting Back: The War on Terrorism—From Inside the Bush White House, by Bill Sammon, 10/02, pp. 83-84] Even stranger, as one newspaper put it, although the nation was under terrorist attack, “for some reason, Secret Service agents [did] not bustle him away.” [Globe and Mail, 9/12/01]

Military pilots must have “permission from the White House because only the president has the authority to order a civilian aircraft shot down.” [CNN, 10/26/99] But if retaliatory strikes needed to the authorized, Bush was not available. If one of the planes had to be shot down to save more lives on the ground, Bush was not available. Although several fighters had been dispatched to defend New York City, the pilot of one of the planes flying to catch Flight 175 later noted that it wouldn’t have mattered if he caught up with it, because only Bush could order a shootdown, and Bush could not be reached in the classroom.

The first details about former President George W. Bush’s new book have begun to leak out.

According to a report at Matt Drudge’s website, The Drudge Report, the new book Decision Points talks about topics including alcoholism, his order to shoot down planes on 9/11, Katrina and the financial crisis.

According to Drudge, the book begins, “It was a simple question, ‘Can you remember the last day you didn’t have a drink?’”

The book also discusses the events of Sept. 11, 2001. That morning, Bush says he made the order to shoot down hijacked planes.

At 10:03 a.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, United Flight 93 slammed into an empty field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Most believe it was brought down when passengers tried to overtake the hijackers.

Federal Court Rejects 9/11 FOIA Records Fee Waiver Request

July 9, 2010

by Aiden Monaghan  source: 9/11 Blogger  July 9, 2010

In an order issued on June 17, 2010, the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada rejected a plaintiff request for a waiver of search and reproduction fees for FBI records pertaining to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Such fees are often significant and can inhibit release of requested records. Now pending before the court is the FBI claim that FBI 9/11 records are exempt from public disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. Requested records include those that may settle public questions regarding the crash scenes of American Airlines flight 77, United Airlines flight 93 and releated passenger phone calls first described as cellular and later as placed from aircraft seatback phones.

 ORDER

 Presently before the court is plaintiff Aidan Monaghan’s (hereinafter “Monaghan”) motion for summary judgment as to fee waiver. (Doc. #19). Defendants filed an opposition (doc. #22), and plaintiff filed a reply (doc. #24).

 Also before the court is defendant’s motion to strike exhibit 1 to plaintiff’s reply brief, (doc. #25) to which plaintiff filed an opposition. (Doc. # 26).

Awareness of Military Cell at FAA Headquarters of Events on Day of 9/11

October 20, 2009

source: 9/11 Blogger

As people who follow the issue closely are aware, there has been some debate over the involvement of a group of military officers stationed at FAA headquarters–generally referred to as the “military cell”–in the events of 9/11. Although I don’t mean to recap the whole debate here, the basic jist is that the 9/11 Commission claimed that the military were unaware of the hijacking of United 93 until a few minutes before it crashed, but what about the military cell–were they too unaware of what was going on?

Yesterday, I was reading through the commission documents we have posted at the 911 Document Archive at Scribd , and I came across a transcript of FAA communications on the day of 9/11. You can find the following at page 59 (approximately 9:45 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.):

MR. : Tactical Net–

MR. : And this is Cleveland Center. Who’s up?

MR. : It is the Command Center with about five or six people listening.

MR. : Okay. Mr. [inaudible], the chief, just asked if we have any military up or not? Are we pursuing that? We’d like to be able to track this guy (United 93) so we know what’s going on, especially when we lose a transponder.

MR. : We have been in contact with the military cell here in the building and they’re working the issue. I’m not sure where they are with

Obviously, this does not prove that the military cell at the FAA was aware of the hijacking of United 93 (still less that they passed it on to other elements in the military), but a contemporary reference stating their involvement is certainly interesting evidence.


Plane crash comparisons.

June 10, 2009

In the video below you will see some controlled plane crash tests(Except for one of the planes, which was at an airshow). The planes were controlled by remote, auto-pilot, advanced auto-pilot….whatever sounds best to you. Notice how in one of the tests some pole-like oblects are shredding apart the wings of the aircraft.

Below we have just a scratch on the surface as to the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania on 9/11/01.

The picture below shows one of 5 lamps that  were “downed by the plane” officially. If that is the case, where is the wreckage, skid or burn line heading to the pentagon?


Plane Crashes in Indonesia, leaves wreckage, unlike Flight 93 on 9/11/01

May 20, 2009


-My best wishes to the families of those on board this plane.
Anytime there is a plane crash, it is good to relate it to the events on 9/11/01. Many people are skeptical of what really happened to flight 93, due to a lack of wreckage at the scene. Obviously, there are differences; terrain, plane, speeds….but those don’t account for a complete lack of wreckage in Pennsylvania. The video below gets really interesting about 49 seconds in…
