The recent release of air-ground transcripts should bury some 9-11 conspiracy theories once and for all.
In the years since the government released air traffic control recordings from the four hijacked planes, the 9-11 conspiracy theorists are still going strong with daily posts on sites like 911truth.org, perhaps the web’s largest manufacturer of pseudoscience and unsubstantiated claims on the topic.
Many of today’s most popular 9-11 conspiracy theories were made popular by the documentary Loose Change. However, since its release, all of the “evidence” in that film has been picked apart and disproved.
The Pentagon Theory
As one example, one specific claim in the documentary was that a commercial airliner could not have hit the Pentagon, because the hole was allegedly too small.
However, air-to-ground recordings released by the government and published in the National Security Archives proved that particular theory as pure bunk.
Recordings from the flight that hit the Pentagon also show that it was indeed hijacked and flown directly into the Pentagon.
The released transcripts of other flights also provide details on information summarized in the 9/11 Commission Report.
The Harrowing Transcripts
At 9:23 a.m. Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania received a warning:
“BEWARE OF ANY COCKPIT INTROUSION [sic]. TWO AIRCRAFT IN NY, HIT TRADE CENTER BUILDS ]sic].
At 9:28 a.m. Flight 93 sent the message “mayday” and “hey get out of here.”
Flight path studies further debunk the conspiracy theories, showing the actual routes of American Airlines Flight 11, American Airlines Flight 77 and United Airlines Flight 175 on that day.
The information was compiled from both recorded radar data and information from Flight Data Recorders. That information helped the National Transportation Safety Board determine takeover points, which was the point where the hijackers gained control of the airplanes.
Both science and fact have long dispelled the massive catalog of 9/11 conspiracy theories that are floating around out there, yet websites like 9/11truth.org and others continue to post their ludicrous claims.
Perhaps the “donate” button has become a profitable venture for the top-ranking 9/11 conspiracy theory websites?Originally published on TopSecretWriters.com
