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.

However, updating it is not.

I would guess that the 'public employee' running the list probably was a little unsure what to add to a routine file documenting aircraft movements following the events of 9/11.

Truthers often have difficulty understanding mundane human behaviour.

Oh, for fuck's sake.

I debated this moron at the Education Forum, reviewed his "book" at Amazon and wrote about it on my forum.

He is especially clueless even by truther standards

From Len's review @ Amazon...

"The author claimed 'I use the large font so my wife can read it.'”

Troofers will never run out of these great facepalm statements, no matter what they're talking about. Comedy gold.

Well that figures. For the group that screams "We want the truth about 9/11!" they sure are in a hurry to conduct their own cover-ups of their mistakes, because God forbid anybody have the truth about thier insanity.

Billman, so somebody writes something stupid on his own blog at the 911blogger website (not on the front page), and then somebody takes it down and that's a coverup of what, exactly? Do you expect blogger to censor everything everybody posts on their own blog? Should James and Pat pre-approve all the stupid comments that are published on this blog?

Isn't it best to take down stupid posts?

What is your point?
