"None of these Calls Could Have Taken Place"
I previously discussed some of the evidence arising out of the Zacarias Moussaoui trial. This is one of the more interesting exhibits. It is a detailed flash presentation (28MB) which lists data on all 4 flights, includings details on all the passengers (including the hijackers) and what seat they were in.
Someone tell Jim Fetzer, who still insists the hijackers did not appear on any passenger lists. Included in this presentation are also details on every phone call made during the flight. This is important because we can compare this information (entered into court records under penalty of perjury) with the speculation included in Loose Change.
In Loose Change, Dylan and Co. display quotes from the following phone calls:
Marion Britton, Flight 93
Tom Burnett, Flight 93
Jeremy Glick, Flight 93
Lauren Grandcolas, Flight 93
Linda Grondland, Flight 93
Peter Hanson, Flight 175
Brian David Sweeney, Flight 175
Honor Wainio, Flight 93
CeeCee Lyles, Flight 93
Barbara Olson, Flight 77
He then discusses phone calls made by Betty Ong, Madeleine Sweeney, and Mark Bingham. After talking about this for several minutes, he then dismisses all of 13 of these calls:
But to be honest, none of that matters. Why? Because none of these calls could have taken place.Why could they have not taken place? Well because according to Dylan, some computer science professor, while circling above Ontario in his Cessna decided cell phone reception is poor on airplanes. Now one could certainly argue that his methodology, which was not conducted with the equipment, or at the geographic location of the flights was poorly done.
But to be honest, none of that matters.
Why? Because everyone of the calls cited in Loose Change was made with an Airfone.
For example Marion Britton called at 9:49 from the Airfone in row 33ABC. Jeremy Glick called at 9:37 from 27DEF. Betty Ong, Madeleine Sweeney, and CeeCee Lyles were all flight attendents, and were obviously quite familiar with the use of Airfones. In fact, in this flash presentation you can listen to the recording of the phone calls made by Ong and Lyles.
So when the Loosers claim that "none of these calls could have taken place", what they actually meant to say was, "there is strong evidence showing everyone of these phone calls did take place". Maybe they will get it right in "Loose Change: The Final Weak Attempt at the Truth"?
Don't count on it.
