Loose Screw #2--The Coroner
The Somerset County Coroner, Wally Miller, comes in for some selective quoting in Loose Change. Here are two quotes that Dylan Avery finds particularly convenient for his argument that Flight 93 did not crash in Shanksville:
But of course that there weren't bodies or blood evident at the site does not mean that the plane did not crash there; it just means they were largely obliterated in the crash.
Here's an article on Miller three weeks after the crash:
The FBI has mandated DNA testing to confirm the identities of remains, a process just beginning that Miller said could take four to six months. But using mostly dental records, Miller and staff have identified remains of 12 passengers -- a number that the coroner said might grow with last weekend's recovery of additional remains.
Remains, like the aircraft wreckage itself, were scattered when the jet hit the ground at as much as 575 mph, then exploded in a fireball of fuel.
With those of 12 people identified, Miller and his team have identified the remains of 27 percent of the people on the plane, more than the 20 percent match he said that experts predicted at the outset.
Here's another quote from Miller that you won't see in the film:
All that debris, and the fact that only 8 percent of the human remains could be recovered, mean the site is, essentially, a cemetery, Miller says. "The real story is about what those people did, deciding to rush the [terrorists] and sell everyone else on the idea," says Miller, who spent weeks crawling around on his hands and knees searching for remains and would rather talk about anything else. "Where it landed is not what matters. The most important thing is that they be properly remembered."
This is typical of kook conspiracy theories; one quote by somebody will be highlighted, while other quotes that disprove the theory will be ignored.
