What do you think of this new theory?
This theory proposes that the hijackers were just that, hijackers. They were not suicidal, and did not intend to die in a crash. This made it easier to recruit 19 or more men to volunteer for the mission. The true intent of the organizers of 9/11 was to knock out the hijackers with cyanide-like gas, along with the crew and passengers. Then the plane would proceed by remote control, which all the Boeing planes were equipped to do.
Common pattern that merges from the WTC and Pentagon attacks
Hijackers intended to land the planes and make demands in return for hostages. After hijackers took over the planes, pilots notified ground control, passengers notified their relatives, and possibly voice morphed calls got the story out. Cyanide gas tanks, hidden in the luggage area and triggered by remote control, spread gas through the plane, and knocked unconscious the passengers, crew, and hijackers. The hijackers were duped. The Boeing planes were equipped with remote control, and continued on to their target buildings. The buildings also had explosives, planted during their renovations. After the impact, and a delay to allow some people in the building to escape, the explosives did the remainder of the damage. The press was spun, so the plane got all of the blame.
Differences between the WTC and Pentagon attacks:
WTCs: Explosives went off just after the impact in the WTC, to ensure a huge fire ball, and maximum internal damage
Pentagon: They went off just before the impact, to minimize internal damage, explaining the smaller than expected hole and wing marks.
The 9/11 Conspiracy Team
* Bin Laden provided the hijackers, and told them to hijack 4 planes, land, and demand the USA get out of Arabia in return for the hostages.
* Mueller made sure no FBI agents arrested the hijackers, taking pilot training in the USA (not in other countries with flight schools) to create a plausible cover story.
* Airline baggage men (agents) put the bags with remote controlled cyanide gas tanks in the planes, to knock out the crew, passengers, and hijackers (who were duped, and died too).
* Airline maintenance (agents) installed enhanced remote control in the passenger jets.
* ACE Elevator workers (agents) placed the nano-thermite and other explosives in the WTC elevators by day, and above ceilings panels by night
* Cheney made sure no fighter jets intercepted the planes
* Rumsfeld had workers strengthen the Pentagon Wing wall for the impact.
* Bremer arranged homing beacons installed in WTCs, and first blamed Bin Laden on TV
* Gen. Myers provided the NORAD stand down and timelines
* Bush leveraged the attacks into a reason to invade Afghanistan and Iraq.
This helps explain, better than any theory, the physical evidence and testimony the witnesses.
