I remember on 911, news agencies were reporting many more planes hijacked early on. I don't recall the number but it was close to double the 4 planes it turned out to be. People speculate and confuse information, particularly early on when people are panicked and grasping for details...I'm very sorry for the double posting, my computer got confused or something ... I would also like to add another link to my post, one of the reports that mentions the 5 unexploded devices.
I hope anyone who reads my little rants and rambles at least thinks about it a little. I'm just confused (as most of us probably are) about the events that took place yesterday and that continue to unfold today. Tons of information draggining us in a thousand different directions, people pointing fingers, spreading rumors (like the rumors about someone claiming responsiblity which have since been proven false) No real leads, no real evidence. Just theory's. I just want the facts. All of them. I want to sort out the mangled mess of news reports and numbers and quotes. If we could take any knowledge, away from all the events since 9/11, it's that mis-information breeds hatred, discontent, and fear in people. I don't want to be a victim of misinterpreted facts, or words out of context.
Thanks to anyone who made it through all my words, and I hope you at least found it interesting if not helpful in some way. I will be compiling my own timeline including every detailed fact I can verify, that will include every news report, tweet, facebook posting, youtube video, and photograph that I can piece together to give a full display of how the events started and how the news spread through social media and television. I will include a full list of sources and first time instances of quotes and reports made public. When it's done I will post a link here to a site where it will be.
Monday I had heard of the 2 explosions and two other devices undetonated... Very easy to think that someone along the way misunderstood somewhere and reported incorrectly and everyone jumped on it because the idea of more devices undetonated is terrifying.
The 5th would be the JFK Library fire that they thought was another explosion. I think the problem is that too many people start throwing out information before they actually know the facts. I certainly had friends on facebook posting incorrect information. With the internet the way it is now... information (correct or not) flies around so fast it is hard to sort it out.
