Bush reveals that he gave the order for any further suspected hijacked planes to be shot down after the first aircraft were flown into the World Trade Centre in New York during the 2001 terror attacks.
He at first thought the crash of United Airlines flight 93 in Pennsylvania had resulted from this instruction, although it later emerged that passengers had stormed the cockpit as hijackers flew the plane towards the Capitol building in Washington.
bolded....the orders were given...and that's what I think happened to Flight 93 (and Flight 77)
but because of the trauma that the US was already experiencing with what happened at the WTC...it was
decided to keep the true facts classified.
For the sake of discussion, I'll entertain the possibility that Flight 93 was actually shot down and the fact that it was shot down was hidden for the very hypothetical reason you mentioned. Given the options between reporting that the flight was shot down or that the valiant efforts of the passengers' revolt brought it down, most people would prefer the latter. More than anything, the country needed shining examples of heroism in the wake of the attacks.
That being said, I don't personally doubt the heroism of the passengers on 93. Had I been on that flight and armed with the knowledge of the other crashes, I would have done the same exact thing. I think that just about anyone capable of mounting such an effort would have done the same exact thing as well. What was the alternative? Sit cowering in the back of the plane waiting for inevitable death when it reached the intended target? At least by taking action you have a chance, however small, of surviving and/or saving hundreds or even thousands of lives.
Of course they would take action. Of course they would try to regain control of the aircraft from the hijackers.
the Official Account or the Inside Job conspiracy....there is a third possibility...
that it wasn't an Inside Job, but because of what had to be and/or, was, done on the day....there has been a
cover-up and some things have been classified. This is the position I take re. 9/11.
I think the things that are covered up are.....(in brief)
Some kind of Directed Energy Weapon was used at the WTC to dramatically reduce the rubble and ensure the damaged buildings
fell into their own footprint.
That flights 93 and 77 were shot down as a defensive measure.
[extended pause while I take a deep breath in a failed effort at restraint...]
I will say this though...
WTC 1 and 2 didn't fall into their own footprint. Not even remotely. So if the purpose of this hypothetical Directed Energy Weapon was to accomplish a hypothetically small collapse zone, it hypothetically failed with hypothetically huge proportions to achieve this hypothetical goal. So whoever hypothetically developed this hypothetical weapon should go back to their hypothetical drawing board and tear up their hypothetical papers to focus on more realistic things...
Well, so much for deciding against it.
While I'm at it... 77 wasn't shot down. I have no idea what makes you think it was and quite frankly I'm afraid to ask... but no, it wasn't shot down. It crashed into the Pentagon. It was all over the news actually.
