Loose Change Fried 7

      See Loose Change Fried 1, Loose Change Fried 2, Loose Change Fried 3, Loose Change Fried 4, Loose Change Fried 5, and Loose Change Fried 6.

     Once again, it’s time to expose Loose Change for the pack of lies and misinformation that it is, this time with respect to Flight 93 ( source).

     Now, at 56 minutes and 7seconds, Loose Change claims that there were 45 passengers on board Flight 93.  The problem is, as we see here, there were only 37 passengers ( including the hijackers) and 7 crew, for a grand total of 44 people.  Hint:  the flight crew doesn’t count as passengers.

     Furthermore, Loose Change claims that the official story had flight 93 headed for the White House: however that was, in point of fact, what Moussaoui said (reference).

    In addition, whether or not Loose Change ( or “truthers” in general) want to admit it, most of the plane was indeed recovered from Shanksville, Pennsylvania, positive ID was made of the passengers, and personal effects and large chunks of debris were found there (source).

     At 56 minutes and 44 seconds, this quote from Loose Change is provided here: “Chris Chaniki he’s a photographer with the Pittsburgh affiliate a Fox affiliate. He was back there just a couple minutes ago and Chris, I’ve seen the pictures, it looks like there’s nothing there, except for a hole in the ground.”  As this link correctly points out, the phrase “looks like” indicates a simile.

     Since the CT’s seem to be struggling with the definition of a simile, Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary defines a simile as “a figure of speech comparing two unlike things that is often introduced by like or as.”  While we’re at it, seeing as how “truthers” are incapable of understanding literary devices, Merriam Webster defines a metaphor as “1: a figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting one kind of object or idea is used in place of another to suggest a likeness or analogy between them (as in drowning in money) ; broadly : figurative language” or 2: an object, activity, or idea treated as a metaphor”

     Notice also, that Chris Chaniki is NOT an investigator; he’s a PHOTOGRAPHER ( source).

     Also, in this time frame, Loose Change states that Chris Chaniki did indeed see some broken trees ( reference), which would indicate something, such as a plane travelling at a high rate of speed, hit them, unless you buy the theory that a directed energy weapon caused the damage, in which case you’ve been watching far too many  Star Trek episodes.

     Loose Change also ignores the fact that eyewitnesses saw a mushroom cloud when the plane hit, and the fact that debris, including most of an engine, was scattered all over the area ( source).

     At 58 minutes and 5 seconds, Loose Change compares a Nigerian plane crash to that of Flight 93, while ignoring the fact that the circumstances were totally different.  For one thing, the Nigerian plane was a Boeing 737, Flight 93 was a Boeing 757.  In addition, the Nigerian plane crash was NOT hijacked; it crashed due to severe weather ( source). In short, those two plane crashes were unrelated to each other and Loose Change is again comparing apples to oranges.

     At 58 minutes and 53 seconds, Loose Change repeats the theory that Flight 93 actually landed in Cleveland, despite the fact that it’s been debunked many times ( reference).

     This is because at 11:43 am on 9/11/01, a TV station in Cincinnati reported that two planes landed in Cleveland due to a bomb threat and   United Airlines identified one of them as flight 93.  However, Loose Change ignores the fact that that was an erroneous report, which was immediately corrected ( source).  Again, the erroneous report is NOT evidence of a conspiracy.  In the case of disasters, natural or otherwise,  confusion immediately afterwards is quite typical.

     Suffice it to say, I am constantly amazed at the ability of “truthers” to perform proctologic exams on themselves.
