So how long do you think it will take until they realize that the entire 186,000,000 of us that aren't Cter's are getting paid off to keep our mouths shut? With all their finger pointing and screaming that everybody's in collusion with the gubamit to cover up the inside job, you'd think they'd have figured out that they're the only people in the country who aren't in on the coverup.

When they gonna realize that all they have to do is come over to the dark side and collect a big paycheck just like the rest of us did?

Based on your assertations of an inside job, you do realise how ridiculous this statement above is, right?

Released.

The fact that you la-la's think there are more is irrelevant.

(And you do realise it would be ILLEGAL for the government to release evidence that is private property, right?)

NTSB only investigate accidents. The destruction of the four flights on 9/11 was a criminal act, and the investigation is conducted by the FBI. The NTSB provide expertise in given areas, such as FDR analysis. These NTSB reports are available online. Try looking.

You realise it is illegal for them to release such information, right? Surely, given you are spouting federal law, you understand all this? I am sure you are well up on, for example, the law passed in the early 90's making it illegal to publicly release CVRs from air crashes, right?

I don't believe it is standard practise to publicly release evidence from a crime. How about all those murder scene photos? Why haven't they been released? Huh?

(By the way, if you have not seen photographs of aircraft wreckage in The Pentagon you SERIOUSLY have made NO effort to look)

Why haven't the government publicly released the vending-machine re-filling schedules for all government buildings? DISGUSTING!

You want a bit of information? Stop whining and ask for it.

RANT! Complaints like this make me furious. You are utterly oblivious and ungrateful for the nation you live in. Are you aware of how few countries around the world allow their citizens to gain access to official government documents? And yet with the United States FOIA, ANYONE IN THE WORLD can make requests! I have never even BEEN to the USA and yet I can file a FOIA Request and get stuff sent to me. Do you have ANY idea how significant that is?

Sometimes I honestly just wish the USA did become a police state so ungrateful cretins like you got a taste of what living in one is REALLY like.

Excuse my ignorance, but what, exactly, is "DU." I'm assuming it's another troother site/forum.

It took me all of one post to get banned at the LC forum (funny how dissent is NOT allowed on a forum looking for 'truth') so I may as well continue my good will journey...

Yeah... that's how Woodward and Bernstein did it. They sat on their asses and waited for the government to hand them the keys to the kingdom. Or better yet... I think what they did was stand on the sidewalk out in front of the Watergate Hotel hooting and hollering like lunatics.

Welcome!

While debate here can be fierce, and unsupported claims will be decimated, you will find this forum to be very fairly moderated. As long as you do not violate the few simple rules of the forum, you will never get banned here.

Democratic Underground. Their alliance with CTers is born of a "we hate Bush" mentality than a real belief in the veracity of the CTs.

Why wait? According to the CTers, there's plenty of evidence already out there. Otherwise, what is your theory based on? Fairies? Use what you've got, grab yourselves a lwayer, and go to town!

I don't see the point in waiting if you think your case is already so slam shut.

Can't wait to call them JAQ-offs on Saturday.

In all seriousness though, where'd Truthy-poo go? I'd honestly like an answer to why they need to see the 4,082,756 other Pentagon tapes. C'mon Truth. You guys rave and salivate over how many "experts" you have in your Scholars for 9/11 Truth. Half of you fellate Alex Jones every time you see him. (Side note: I could've SWORN I saw at least two male truthers throw their boxers at Jones on Monday screaming, "I love you Alex!!!!"). Get these people to work!

You don't need the government. It's evil. They're lying to you. Anything they still have at this point is tampered with, planted, or disposed of. You're essentially asking Dahmer if you could look in his fridge.... Ya' know. Just to see.

You're waiting for the government to tip their hand when every last one of you claim they already have. Smoking guns abound. It's all so obvious!!!

So get up off your pimply [rule8]ing ass, and do something about it.

Yes, it was Democratic Underground that was referred to. They have a September 11 forum that is referred to as "the dungeon". It is so named because the administrators don't want the conspiracy crap showing up on the main forums, and have made it so that threads in the dungeon cannot be nominated for more prominent display and whenever someone starts a conspiracy thread on the main forums, it gets relegated to the dungeon.

Killtown has had so many names there (he gets banned regularly) that it's hard to keep up with them all. But his style is unmistakable.

Can't you file a law suit with the voluminus evidence you already have and then supeona the additional information that you need?

DU = Democratic Underground.

I will not tar the entire site with the same brush, but the wingnuts in the 9/11 thread are just as close minded to logic and real evidence as any over at LC. Same church, different pew.
