The whole world saw two planes fly into those buildings. You can't mistake passenger planes flying into two buildings with passengers inside both. Neither can you mistake a plane flying into the Pentagon or deny another plane flew into the ground to avoid flying into another landmark.
If you want to believe a touched up video and your lying eyes, that's your problem.
But shame on you for showing a video like this on a day like this.
This is what the rest of us saw. A plane headed straight for the first tower and hit its target.

The second plane hit its second target. What you want to see under the second plane is a shadow.

Poor old retarded Flack, still attempting to paint a pretty picture of that pig. Bush is a proven coward and liar, who was deprived of his flight status because he refused a drug test, it is also a "FACT" that he went AWOL and eventually deserted. And all know that he got a boost from his influential daddy in oreder to jumt ahead of over two hundred men that were in the waiting line..A "FACT" Paint it as you will but those are the "FACTS" Numbnuts. Your blind allegiance is duly noted, along with your desperation..

Was the first attempt to bring down the towers in 1993 a conspiracy under the Clinton administration?

Were the passengers and stewardesses on the 9/11 planes who called officials and loved ones to report what was happening on those planes part of the conspiracy? Or actors reenacting it?

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) investigated and rejected the claims made by 9/11 conspiracy theories. The civil engineering community accepts that the impacts of jet aircraft at high speeds in combination with subsequent fires, not controlled demolition, led to the collapse of the Twin Towers. This also was the conclusion of the 9/11 Commission, chaired by Governor Thomas Kean.

All of you conspiracy theorists on the left have some personal issues.

There are people today who don't believe the Holocaust really happened. Maybe you should all meet up for lunch someday and discuss your denial issues. Get a big table that seats at least 12.

American voters feel:

- Barack Obama is weak and indecisive.

- The U.S. is less respected since Obama became president.

- The U.S. should do more to stop the Islamic extremist group ISIS.

- Obama isn’t willing to do what it takes to defeat ISIS.

- ISIS will try to attack the U.S. soon.

- Embarrassed about Obama not having a strategy for dealing with ISIS.

- Obama will try to “manage” ISIS rather than “defeat” it.

The poll also finds:

- For the first time, more voters than not feel the U.S. is less safe today than before 9/11.

- Obama’s job approval is at record lows on Syria, Iraq and terrorism.(Obama’s overall job approval matches his all-time low.)

- Most would tell Obama to kill extremists beheading Americans now, rather than caution him against overreacting.

The new poll was released Wednesday, hours before President Obama’s prime-time address to the nation about ISIS.

<quoted text>He made a great speech last night. He said things Bush or Cheney would have said. A speech that if you or I said the same thing in a post, the clueless Obama worshippers would be screaming and posting reichwinger or fearmonger comments, right about now. The most challenging thing for Obama is Obama. Can he now walk the walk? He never has before.
Or was he just trying to save the Democrats this November.
Bush and Cheney would never have said we weren't going into combat or agreed to "chair a meeting of the U.N. Security Council to further mobilize the international community around this effort". They had no qualms about killing sending our military into battle to die.

On occasion you have comprehension problems. At no time did I say Cheney was president. If you recall the poster said Cheney was a war criminal. I asked the poster to provide details of the trial that declared him a war criminal. To date he has not.

That's his opinion but I bet ISIL thinks they are religious.
They aren't combat troops but they got boots and weapons. He keeps sending more and more. Sounds just like the mission creep of Vietnam.
This is the closest he's ever come to the truth. The President and Congress need to work together to fight this threat. But maybe not in the way he thinks!!!
Combat troops are already on the ground no matter what he tries to call them!!!!!!!
And reich wingers are open to sending in more son.

What's your point?

One more time you demean and slur our military. How many fighter pilots in the last 20 years or so never were engaged with fighting anyone. So you are saying because the were not called on use their skills they were not fighter pilots. More words of wisdom from you, the potato peeler - first class.

SO much for building coalitions and a new way of governing....

<quoted text>So.... what F-102 units were deployed to Vietnam?
The F-102 made its first flight in 1953 and entered service with the Air Defense Command (ADC) in 1956. About 1,000 Delta Daggers were built, and although eventually superseded by the related F-106 Delta Dart, the F-102 remained one of the most important aircraftin the ADC through the mid-1960s. At its peak, the aircraft made up over half of the interceptors operated by
the ADC and equipped 32 squadrons across the continental US. Additional squadrons were based in western Europe, the Pacific, and Alaska.

As the 1960s continued, many of these aircraft were transferred from the US Air Force to Air National Guard (ANG) units. By 1966, nearly 350 F-102s were being operated by ANG squadrons. A total of 23 ANG units across the US ultimately received the fighter, including squadrons in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin.

One of the primary ANG units to receive the F-102 was the 111th Fighter Interceptor Squadron (FIS) at Ellington Air National Guard Station, which operated the aircraft from 1965 through 1974. These planes were given responsibility for patrolling the Gulf Coast and intercepting Soviet Tu-95 bombers that regularly flew off the US shore while carrying a payload of nuclear weapons. The 111th was and still is part of the 147th Fighter Wing in Houston, Texas. It was here that George W. Bush was stationed following his enlistment in May 1968.

It is a common misconception that the Air National Guard was a safe place for military duty during the Vietnam War. In actuality, pilots from the 147th Fighter Interceptor Group, as it was called at the time, were actually conducting combat missions in Vietnam at the very time Bush enlisted. In fact, F-102 squadrons had been stationed in South Vietnam since March 1962. It was during this time that the Kennedy administration began building up a large US military presence in the nation as a deterrent against North Vietnamese invasion.

F-102 squadrons continued to be stationed in South Vietnam and Thailand throughout most of the Vietnam War. The planes were typically used for fighter defense patrols and as escorts for B-52 bomber raids. While the F-102 had few opportunities to engage in its primary role of fighter combat, the aircraft was used in the close air support role starting in 1965. Armed with
rocket pods, Delta Daggers would make attacks on Viet Cong encampments in an attempt to harass enemy soldiers. Some missions were even conducted using the aircraft's heat-seeking air-to-air missiles to lock onto enemy campfires at night. Though these missions were never considered to be serious attacks on enemy activity, F-102 pilots did often report secondary explosions coming from their targets.

These missions were also dangerous, given the risks inherent to low-level attacks against armed ground troops. A total of 14 or 15 F-102 fighters were lost in Vietnam. Three were shot down by anti-aircraft or small arms fire, one is believed to have been lost in air-to-air combat with a MiG-21, four were destroyed on the ground during Viet Cong attacks, and the remainder succumbed to training accidents.
