I had almost given up the idea that Flight 93 was shot down, but this revives my doubt. It wouldn’t surprise me; the government has a history of covering up any sort of terrorist act, so the next step would be to try to distance themselves from any indication that they had to make a tough decision. This way, the decision was made by the victims themselves, and no one can question thier judgement in death.
The history is long:
- The OKC bombing
- The first WTC bombing
- Flight 800 being shot down with a missile
- The 9/11/01 attacks
- The shoe-bombed Airbus over Queens
- The Israeli plane bombing that was blamed on a Ukranian missile test
