Here is what I think is going on about the crash:
If you already know of the family who was put in jail for the rest of their life (Elderly couple I know, last name Brown?/ Article was on site) this man was pissed at how he was getting screwed by the IRS. He wanted to send a message to TPTB and also send a message to the sheeple in the country. If he was able to get national attention and actually have his letter read on the mainstream media, wouldn't you think the public would read it and react? He mentions how this country and our history are a joke, those who think something is wrong will read it and research, right?
I don't think this is a coverup or a conspiracy and its definitely not a false flag. He figured that his life was screwed and he gave it up to send a message.
Not really the best approach to send the message really but his letter should compensate for the destruction caused by his suicidal and sacrificial move.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

YOU A REAL STOOGE. nOW SHUT THE UFCK UP AND GET THE f**k LOST. No one here sympathizes with that letter. NOBODY. We don't even know if this WAS the guy who flew the f**kin plane, they could easily steal his identity.

Don't post until you read and research false flags DUMB f**k.

Hey, feel free to say whatever the fuck you want.  Just don't be surprised if people here don't like what you have to say.

I would like to here more from Megan Riley...How extensive of a response crew was already in the area.  Was it just a fire truck, was it multiple, multiple cop cars, etc.  This could go a long way.  I mean one firetruck could mean out to lunch or responding to an alarm but a gaggle of response crew, that would open the door up a bit more.

Propeller driven planes can still spool up, and you can tell when they are running at higher output. People tend ot speak in generlaizations, and in terms they are familiar or remotely familiar with. One witness might call an SUV a jeep that they observed at a crimescene, ebcuase they perceive a jeep to be a common term for SUVs, while another person i nthe know may corrdectly identify it at a Chevy Blazer, or simply as an SUV. People are bad witnesses in my experience, and their phrasing or language usage isn't always as telling as we might like it to be.

oh wait, I forgot to add that within 2 hours of the event the news knew the mans name, the fact that he stole the plane, that he burned his house down and that he was the one who did this.  within 2 hours. Fox news had the story online.  that's some goooooood detective work.  

It's the new normal.

i have difficulty believing a plane crash would blow out car windows. unless they were right by it
seems more like explosives to me.

people said they thought it was a bomb before they saw they plane wreckage. i wonder why they didnt hear it coming

Looks very dooable Sad

Airport only a few miles away. Fuel would not be a problem, if indeed that's what did it. I don't think so tho...

At slowest speed of 60mph, he would take, what, 10 minutes to get there??

Austin Suicide Pilot Joseph Andrew Stack Planted Bomb At Airport, Bomb Squad Trying To Defuse
Joe Weisenthal | Feb. 18, 2010, 5:31 PM |
Tags: Terrorism

Apparently Joseph Andrew Stack had larger ambitions than ramming his plane into a government building.
NBC reports, via @breakingnews, that Stack also planted a bomb in a car at an airport, and that bomb squads are trying to defuse it.

Update: The good news is that the bomb is at the relatively minor Georgetown airport north of the city. Still, it's a bomb.

Just keep in mind, within minutes of knowing his name, people here had already dug up his webpage and suicide note. They ARE proffessional investigators, even if they are paid shills for the gubment but they may also have had an inside track too. We need to be mindful in making easy arguments that are easy to debunk. When we make a claim, we need to look at proving and disproving that claim, so that we are prepared for the rhetorical attack which is surely to follow. We might say well, within two hours they knew everytrhign about him. Well, they have unlimited resources, and they are investigators, its whjat we would expect of them to do. So our claim would then look unreasonable, and as though we were reaching.

I don't know if anyone has already made this observation yet, but this building got hit by a small airplane, not a jumbo jet of course, and it's still standing. WTC7 was not hit by anything. Was WTC7 a poorly constructed building or something? This is a rhetorical question, but it seems... a little strange, to say the least.

he had a facebook page.  wanna guess what it looks like?  




http://www.infowars.com/joseph-andrew-stacks-facebook-who-is-emily-walters/?

Quote
This afternoon, there was a Facebook page with Joseph’s name on it, and it gave the distinct impression of him being a TEA Party-type, citing Ron Paul and using the Gadsden Flag as the FB icon. It would appear he was nothing more than a right-wing extremist who had an axe to really grind with the IRS. Please notice I said, “it would appear.”

The nagging question is, however, who created this Facebook page for Joseph Andrew Stack? The answer: a woman named Emily Walters. However, the FB page in question has been removed due to the sensitive nature of this morning’s event. The link to see it, that I have set here, is from Bungalow Bill’s Conservative Wisdom.

Who is Emily Walters, and why would she create a Facebook page for a dead man? It seems suspiciously convenient for her to place several TEA Party-ish and right-wing links and articles onto that FB page, now doesn’t it? It is suspiciously convenient that the media has already started to paint a picture of Joseph Andrew Stack being a fringe right-winger whose hatred for government, and the IRS specifically, drove him to kill himself and try to kill IRS employees in Austin.

Hating the IRS is not an issue that can be solely claimed by the left or the right, or pinned onto the left or the right exclusively. People from all “political stripes” don’t really care for the IRS. There is more to this story than we are seeing.

Again, who is Emily Walters and when will she be questioned as to how she put Joseph’s Facebook page together? There are questions that are not being asked, and it’s time we started.

1. Is it possible the plane could have been "remotely" controlled by someone with no pilot inside?

2. Could it be this Joseph Stack being an engineer knew too much about something? So they burned down his house to hide evidence?

3.  Where were all the people in the building if bombs went off? I believe there could have been a bomb either in the plane or the building but there should have been more casualties--unless like Oklahoma City--many were "off" that day.

Flight Instructor Witnessed Crash
From: FoxNewsChannel | February 18, 2010 | 310 views
Man on the ground saw impact of plane into building, knew pilot must have been experienced

http://www.youtube.com/user/FoxNewsChannel

What are the chances of a flight instructor being at the scene of the crime right when the plane is about to hit?  The video offers no indication of him being in a car, it was directly above his head is mentioned several times.  Alex should try to get him on the show tomorrow as well as Megan Riley.

Well Joseph did possess almost *EXACTLY* the skill set needed to create a remote control for an airplane himself.  He was writing device drivers for embedded controllers for several years.

Joseph Andrew Stack Did Software Work For Hughes Aircraft, Warner Bros Studios Stores, More
Gillian Reagan | Feb. 18, 2010, 2:37 PM

Software engineer Joseph Andrew Stack, the pilot who intentionally crashed a plane in Texas this morning, did contract work for several companies including Hughes Aircraft, Equinox Industries/Warner Brothers Studio Stores, Sorrento Electronics, according to his business website.

He ran a firmware/software development service company called Embedded Art. Here's a description of his business, from his homepage:

Embedded Art is a small independent software house, specializing in process control and automation. In its current form it represents the culmination of 20 years of experience in the software development consulting business. Founded by Joe Stack in 1983 (under the name of Prowess Engineering) in Southern California, the company thrived for 15 years until shifting focus to the Sacramento area to take advantage of growth in the Silicon Valley.

Now, 5 years later, the expertise of Embedded Art has landed in the Austin Area expecting to lend a hand to the growing high technology industry in South-Central Texas.

The concept behind the success of Embedded Art is that we provide the experience and muscle for addressing complex software engineering development tasks. Much of today's programming is a step-wise refinement of previous development projects. With 20 years of experience, we provide the expertise that can effectively navigate around many of the pitfalls that snare the unseasoned engineer (indeed, we've seen many of the same mistakes made again and again by the inexperienced).

Here's his list of clients and the description of his projects, according to the site:

Cylink Corporation
Project: The Cylink CY8300 IPSec high-performance security processor

DMC Stratex Networks
Project: The Spectrum and Altium product lines, high-capacity wireless communication platforms (i.e., microwave radios)

Western Digital Corporation

Sorrento Electronics, Inc.
Project: Process Control System

Here's the screenshot of his client page:


___________________________________________________________
Why is Cylink highlighted in red?  Perhaps I have found a possible motive.  Perhaps Joe Stack wasn't going to play ball with Jay Rockefeller/Snowe/CSIS/NCOIC/Cyber Tyranny mandates over all software coding.  Sounds to me like he had non-backdoored, proprietary, real security technologies that his company developed.  And therefore, he had to be killed.  Fake suicide note, replete with remote control commandeering of his plane, flown into the building, and concocting a completely fake story as to why it happened.

Limiting encryption may open doors to criminals

* Tags: * Cyberterrorism, * Security, * World Trade Center, * FBI

Stefanie Olsen and Robert Lemos, ZDNet News ZDNet US
Published: 27 Sep 2001 10:26 BST

A new call for limits on encryption technology is finding weak political support in the United States, despite a looming clandestine war against terrorism that is likely to hinge on the effectiveness of police and military intelligence.

In response to attacks this month on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Senator Judd Gregg, a New Hampshire Republican, said he favoured establishing mandatory backdoors in the software used to scramble digital messages and to ensure that only the intended recipient can read the contents.

The spectre of unbreakable encryption falling into the hands of criminals, terrorists and hostile governments has long been used to promote policies limiting commercial data-scrambling products. Such arguments are out of date, however, according to many experts. Critics include not only civil libertarians and a self-interested software industry, but those concerned with preventing terrorism as well.

Two factors have decisively changed the playing field: So-called strong encryption technology is already widely available and can't realistically be recalled. In addition, fear of cyberattacks hitting strategic targets such as electrical grids and nuclear power plants has raised the stakes for domestic security.

"The danger in weakening encryption is that our infrastructure would become even less secure," said Bill Crowell, a former deputy director of the National Security Agency, the organisation charged with gathering electronic intelligence for the military and protecting the United States' own communications networks. "There is no indication that the administration is serious about these proposals."

Already, some members of Congress are readying opposition to Gregg's proposal.

Representative Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican and longtime critic of anti-encryption measures, said he is working to build Senate opposition for such a bill that equals momentum in the House. Goodlatte belongs to a camp of lawmakers that believes such legislation would be a threat to national security.

"It's not a matter of privacy vs security, but security vs security," Goodlatte said in an interview.

"Encryption protects our national security," he said. "It protects the controls of everything from nuclear power plants to the New York Stock Exchange, government communications, credit cards and the electric power grid. Encryption plays a critical role in our entire communication system, and to require that a backdoor be built into that system is just an incredibly dangerous thing to do."

Former NSA Deputy Director Crowell, now president and chief executive of security software maker Cylink, said intelligence and law enforcement agencies will have to find other ways to gather information than plucking it from the ether.

"Yes, it's hard," he said. "But that is the world that we live in today. I think the alternative of having banks, companies and the government use weak encryption is not a good one."

Gregg stated that he would present legislation to create a "quasi-judicial entity," appointed by the Supreme Court, that would act as an independent third party giving authority to the lawmakers with proper warrants to crack encrypted documents.

"This judicial element would have the ability, with absolute search-and-seizure rights protected, to get access to security keys with cooperation from the industry," said Brian Hart, press secretary for the senator.

Gregg is discussing the proposal with other senators and is waiting to see Attorney General John Ashcroft's full anti-terrorism recommendation, expected to be released next week, Hart said.

"We want to defer to the president and the Bush administration to combat terrorism," he said.

For law enforcement and officials of the newly formed Office of Homeland Security, encryption holds both a promise and a threat.

Today's encryption technology allows anyone with a PC to scramble their email and files so that even the most powerful computers in the world would take centuries, if not longer, to crack the code. Only the correct key can decipher the original message.

On one hand, encryption has made the Internet more secure. In the past, most information on the Internet was sent in plain text with no encryption protecting it. Anyone listening on the line could capture passwords, financial transactions or personal emails. Today, the ability to encrypt the content of messages has heightened the security of the Internet.

However, that same ability to scramble messages has left lawful authorities bereft of any ability to eavesdrop on suspected terrorists when encryption is being used. Although there is no evidence yet that encryption was used by the terrorists that attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, many consider it likely.

The dangers of giving criminals the ability to hold absolutely private communications has been debated often in the past decade.

In the late '90s, a group of federal regulators including former FBI Director Louis Freeh and former Attorney General Janet Reno championed legislation that required encryption software to include government safeguards and that restricted US exports.

The Clinton administration introduced a proposal for technology known as the "Clipper Chip," or an extra key held by the government, which could with a warrant unlock encrypted electronic messages for criminal investigations. The proposal met with opposition from the American public, businesses and foreign governments, and eventually failed. Critics said foreign consumers or businesses would not buy US encryption software accessible by the US government.

"Everyone gets really nervous when you start talking about backdoors because you have to trust the other fellow a lot," said James Lewis, director for the technology and public policy program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, based in Washington D.C.

"If you put domestic restrictions on US encryption use, it doesn't do any good, because first, there are real costs to the economy -- the Internet is weakened -- and second, without the cooperation of every other crypto supplier in the world, it doesn't prevent terrorists from getting their crypto from somewhere else," Lewis said. "None of these issues have changed."

For now, Gregg seems unlikely to gain many adherents.

Scott Schnell, senior vice president of corporate development for encryption technology seller RSA Data Security, argued that a backdoor could make the Internet far more vulnerable to attack.

"The fatal flaw is that if the terrorist ends up with a key [to a backdoor], it could be disastrous," he said. "A single key could compromise a whole company or a large segment of the population."

Rather than preventing terrorism, argued Schnell, Gregg's proposal would empower terrorists by allowing them to focus their attack on a single weakness.

"The proposal not only wouldn't work, but it would force the country to pay a huge penalty to get access to a small body of potential evidence," he said.

Privacy advocates weighed in against the proposal as well. Richard Smith, chief technology officer for the Denver-based Privacy Foundation, characterised any potential encryption laws as a "total waste of time."

"It will take years to get updated forms of the software, assuming that people will even upgrade voluntarily," Smith said. Worse, such legislation would have little effect on terrorists who could just use the software publicly available now. "The bad guys will keep using the old products without the backdoors."
[INSERT:  This was (and is) the perfect excuse they are already beginning to use to internationalize all software globally.]

Steve Bellovin, a security researcher with ATT Labs, said any impression the United States has of pre-eminence in the encryption field is wrongheaded. The encryption algorithm to be used by the US government in the future, known as the Advanced Encryption Standard, was originally developed by two Belgian scientists.

Terrorists outside the United States will have access to such expertise, he said. "These people are not stupid," he said. "They will write their own code. I know high-school students who could take the AES specification and write a program."

Gregg hopes to head that off by enlisting other nations' help. One key to legislation would be the cooperation of governments around the world, which Gregg has urged in congressional hearings. Global enforcement is essential to ensuring that terrorists and hackers are unable to obtain encryption software without backdoors.

But opponents to encryption laws believe such cooperation to be impossible.

"Because you can download software on the Internet, people outside the country could sell encryption without a backdoor," said the Privacy Foundation's Smith. "To have practical value, it would have to have worldwide enforcement, and plenty of countries wouldn't want to do this."

Development Services

Throughout our twenty-year history we have grown as the software industry as it has grown. Twenty years ago the industry largely regarded the development of end-user software to be an entirely different pursuit than that of an embedded controller application. The main reason being because the operating environments were vastly different. Firmware generally was associated with tight processing constraints in minimally capable hardware environments (and, of course, was burned into ROM).

In recent years, however because of the proliferation of low cost, abundantly capable microprocessors and support hardware, the difference between the embedded firmware operating environment and that of the typical end user application has become almost insignificant.

It is not at all unusual to find embedded systems with a multitasking operating system, a full network protocol stack, a relational SQL database server, a multi-user graphical user interface server and more.

Visit our list of Environment Element Components page to see a catalog of some of the many processors, protocols, languages, libraries, and facilities we have worked with over the years.

Embedded Systems Development

    In this age, almost every device we encounter that is electrical has some kind of electronic automation. Microprocessor controllers play a part in everything from devices as simple as home appliances to complex computer peripherals. Over the years, we've produced firmware for a wide spectrum of these fascinating devices.
    Embedded System Development Areas of Specialization

    In every firmware development process there are frequently trouble spots which engineers encounter. Our experience in these areas allows us to help insure a development effort will remains on schedule, and within budget. Some specific areas include:

        * Environment Development
        * Microprocessor Start-up Code
        * Operating System Integration
        * Device Driver Implementation
        * Algorithm and Process Refinement
        * Firmware Product Maintainability

End-User Application Development

    Our end-user application development experience started with an interactive text editor built for a port of Unix back in the early 1980's. Since then, we've garnered praise from numerous customers (Western Digital, Sorrento Electronics, Warner Bros. Studio Stores, and many more) for the demonstration of our ability to define application user interfaces that present information in a clear, concise, and efficient format which is intuitive and productive for the user.
Software Quality Assurance

    In software engineering circles, it's an odd fact of lift that many of the most talented developers have an aversion to both the Software Quality Assurance (SQA) and the documentation processes. It has been our experience that one of the most expensive mistakes a company can make is to short-change the SQA process.

    No amount of effort will turn up all possible software problems (indeed, any given module only functions within its specification in a tightly controlled context). However, the key to achieving stellar results from SQA efforts lies in understanding how a given software environment works and what must be done to methodically examine each possible failure point.
Technical Documentation

    Writing high quality, comprehensive documentation (whether it's a requirement specification or an end-user document) and designing an efficient software algorithm are very similar exercises. In both cases it takes skill and dexterity at defining a problem to be solved, organizing just the right pieces of information into the optimal order so that everything is presented as it is needed, and carefully presenting all that is necessary and nothing more.

    Designing a good documentation set can be almost as complicated as a good systems design (and every bit as important). However, many of the technical writer staff (while highly qualified authors) have a poor grasp of the documentation tools and the ramifications of how to design a system that can live and breath in an engineering department over the years without quickly becoming unmanageable and obsolete. We've solved this problem, and have the know-how to do it again with the next generation of tools.

Gee think there's a connection here?  Nothing to see here move along.  Wink

According to Stack's own website, he's been writing device driver software for these controllers for 20 years.

 Corporate Media Blames Kamikaze Attack On Tea Parties


Corporate Media Blames Kamikaze Attack On Tea Parties 
Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Thursday, February 18, 2010

UPDATE: Both the Washington Post and New York Magazine are also blaming the Tea Parties for the attack.

A Washington Post writer says “I am struck by how his alienation is similar to that we’re hearing from the extreme elements of the Tea Party movement.”

New York Magazine says “In fact, a lot of his rhetoric could have been taken directly from a handwritten sign at a tea party rally.”

Hat Tip: Information Liberation

Time Magazine has wasted little time in crudely exploiting the kamikaze plane attack in Austin today to smear Tea Party activists as violent domestic terrorists, implying that anyone upset with big brother and the federal government is in league with Joe Stack, the pilot who crashed his Piper Cherokee into a building that housed IRS offices.

With Obama supporters already crawling over message boards labeling the incident a “right-wing domestic terror attack,” Time Magazine has already jumped on board with a piece by Hilary Hylton which equates Stack’s rambling manifesto with “the angry populist sentiments that have swept the country in the past year”.

Below the third paragraph of the article, there appears a red link to a story entitled, The Making of the Tea Party Movement, which was also published today.

(ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW)

The agenda is transparent – despite the fact that Stack does not mention the Tea Party once in his lengthy manifesto, Time is attempting to blame the kamikaze attack on the Tea Party mentality within hours of the incident.

“The White House was quick to say the incident was not a plot by overseas terrorists. But was it terrorism nevertheless?” asks Hylton. “In his note, Stack was very clear he was unhappy with the U.S. government. He complained about onerous and merciless taxation of individuals like him as well as corruption and the special treatment the executives of big corporations allegedly received after their companies failed. And he seemed to be as emboldened as any suicide bomber.”

So according to Time Magazine’s implication, anyone who is upset and angry at the government wants to crash planes into buildings and kill themselves.

1. Is it possible the plane could have been "remotely" controlled by someone with no pilot inside?

2. Could it be this Joseph Stack being an engineer knew too much about something? So they burned down his house to hide evidence?

3.  Where were all the people in the building if bombs went off? I believe there could have been a bomb either in the plane or the building but there should have been more casualties--unless like Oklahoma City--many were "off" that day.

I was thinking this myself...that Mr. Stack had been drugged to his demise and that they remote control the plane into that building...shades of the Lone Gunmen pilot.

Better size this pic.

no damn way on earth a light plane caused that much destruction, just look how many many windows were blown out! not even the 9/11 planes blew out that many windows!! something smells rotten in the state of denmark.

The fact that the guy pointed out that he didn't like capitalists and communists and there is a "Don't Tread on Me" Flag on his Face Book Page is just creepy!

How could a guy hate both sides when an "Independent" likes alittle bit of both sides?
