Okay okay, I'm not with the "Loose Change" people, but you've got to admit this is weird.

I watched "The Lone Gunmen" alot but didn't remember this.





The pilot episode, which first aired on March 4, 2001, concerned a terrorist plot to fly a hijacked airplane into the World Trade Center towers.

i saw that episode. i thought it was creepy, and might give ideas to someone. after 9/11 condoleeza rice said that no one would have imagined using planes as weapons, but obviously she didn't watch enough trash tv.

spectral_ev, I'm really surprised I didn't since I was a huge X-files fan and tried to catch all the 'Lone Gunmen'ones. Yeah, no one would think about it 'cept one of these guys....

Does this mean Fox is in cahoots with Al Qaeda? Osama Bin Rupert Murdoch? (If you didn't figure out that was a joke you have issues.) Also if you didn't think a plane could be a weapon you need to read up on WW2, not that Condi has ever been the sharpest tool in the shed.

yeah, that was some of the best evidence way back when the Condi was a dipshit. That and the Tom Clancy novel, and the FedEx hijacking, and the Geneva summit, and the design of nuclear reactors, ....

The real science fiction has always come from the White House. I just hope we never get reruns.

Creeeepy.

And the fictional character indicates the plotters' nefarious purpose is to fuel an arms race. How prescient, Mr. Carter.

I've never been a subscriber to the conspiracy theories. I still don't, because OBL has admitted as much. I feel no conflict being against the death penalty but for assassinating OBL. He's a mass murderer, unless the translations are wrong, and I wish the US govt would focus on him for once. I suspect y'all agree.

Just under 6 years since the worst day ever, and this mofo is still breathing our air.

Hopefully not for much longer.

Bin Laden is NOT wanted for 9/11. That he allegedly confessed is BOGUS. Ditto that Amadinajad said he wanted Israel wiped off the map (violently).

"Just under 6 years since the worst day ever"...

You Americans have a habit to overdramatize things. Sept 11 2001 was a bad day, I agree, but the "worst day ever"??? That's a bit of an exaggeration.

Try telling that to the residents of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945... Or the residents of Dresden is February 1945. Or the current residents of Iraq, which could reasonably count March 20th 2003 as the "worst day ever".

This is like the bully who clobbers all the kids in the school yard sobbing because one of his victims decided to pinch him. I have every sympathy for those directly victimized in the 9/11 attacks; but for America as a whole? Absolutely not.

when I first saw the towers get hit, that's what went through my head, that pilot episode.
I never bought the 19 hijackers (who turned up alive elsewhere) angle either. Hitting the Pentagon and claiming it was a Boeing is too crazy even for TV. People at least insist that their fiction make sense.
EG:)

I cant believe some crybaby here wouldsay that 9/11 was is nothing compared to WW2.Then again,probably a terrorist or worse,a liberal.Try explaining why Muslims are allowed to kill women and children and yet in the liberal mindset,we arent supposed to engage an enemy who does this or wont even fight like real men would.As if we left Iraq now,they would stop.
Give it up liberal terrorist,there were crusades againest these savage scumbags and no matter what religon you are,if you dont say allah(a fat faggot)you die...Sorry to disagree with you,but you know Ive read your blogs and see you dont care about anybody but yourself and forget that people have fought and died for your right to sit hear and preach your double standard hypocrisy.Then again,maybe your just another muslim,liberal scumbag who lives in mommies basement counting the days tillyou get the nerve to admit to jerking off on your sisters face...LOL..Your a terrorist muslim liberal scumbag!!
The end of western civilization begins with liberalism.The holy than you mindset.
