9-11 Blogger Now Posting No-Planer Stuff?
We haven't heard much from this segment of the Troof in awhile.
The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) originally did not show American Airlines Flights 11 and 77 as having been scheduled or having taken off on September 11, 2001.
The late researcher Gerard Holmgren identified this fact and made it public on November 13, 2003.
By 2004, the BTS records showed something completely different about these flights. The new explanation said the following:
" On September 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight #11 and #77 and United Airlines #93 and #175 were hijacked by terrorists. Therefore, these flights are not included in the on-time summary statistics."
As a public employee, I can safely assert that doctoring an official record is a serious matter. Public employees (and probably private ones, too) may be fired for engaging in this conduct. It seems someone up high did not want the public to see the original records.
It's amusing to see the "sacred list" argument stated so blatantly. Apparently the author (Dean Hartwell) believes that the government would willingly engage in the murder of thousands of people, but change a list somewhere? That's a firing offense!
Hartwell apparently isn't quite a no-planer (although Holmgren was). Instead he falls into that offensive, David L. Griscom category of a "no-passenger" theorist. Loonier than a Canadian dollar, in other words.
Update: Reader Len reviewed Hartwell's "book" (really a tract) at his blog.
One thing that potential buyers should be aware of is that this not really a 144 page book because it is set in extra-large type. It is just over 15,000 words (i.e. a little more than 5x longer than this review), if normal size type had been used the “book” would be only ¼ - 1/3 as long. So for $10 plus shipping you’ll get a 40 or so page essay that the author had to self-publish, by contrast 350 – 700 page commercially published books by Griffin, Tarpley and Ruppert (which I think are crappy too) go for $12 - $18.
But as Len notes, it's not as if Hartwell leaves you wishing his book was longer.
Update II: Well, that got results; the post is now gone from 9-11 Blogger.
