Disgusted July 17, 2006 5:01 am (Pacific time)

Where were all the skillful fighter jets on 9/11. They were deliberately removed to Canada and Alaska on a bogus training mission. Our government allowed and created 9/11 but they are not as good as Ziegfried and Roy. People have found out the truth because of people speaking out in the New York area and documentaries like Loose Change. You can see it on the internet under Free Press International or American Free Press. Never trust the government. All they do is take your tax money so they can give it to themselves or their cronies in one way or another. Trade Towers don't collapse from fire, jets or anything else. They were demolished, that is why they went down with such pin point precision. Flight 800 off of Long Island was brought down by a friendly fire screw-up. Everyone, hundreds of people saw the same thing. When some people called into the police to tell them what they saw, they were told, "You did not see that." What kind of system are we living under. The families of the dead have a right to know what all of the eye witnesses saw. Instead just like the B.S. 9/11 report. The government lie and cover-up becomes the official version. People who know nothing about aircraft are so easily fooled.
