9/11 Hijackers Still On "No-Fly" List

Ordinarily I haven't given much credence to the "9/11 Truth" gang.

It just seems SO implausible that someone could have rigged the World Trade Center and gotten away with it.

One thing that DID catch my attention in some of the 9/11 conspiracy literature, however, is the claim that many of the named 9/11 hijackers are still alive.

Of course with Elvis being sighted several times daily as gas stations all across America, I didn't even give THAT much credit until I saw this NBC story about people with the same names as Irish terrorists being on the TSA "No-Fly" list.

An investigator was able to get hold of the list and discovered that the 9/11 hijackers are still on the list!

Of course there are obviously some database issues and whatnot, but that REALLY made me sit up and go, "WHAT???!!??".

Oh, yes ... I'm thinking at this point there just MAY be some serious foolishness going on with this event that hasn't completely come to the surface yet ...

What's wrong with that?

If being known-dead took someone's name off the list, then faking a Mohammed Atta ID would be a sure-fire way to get a hijacker onto a plane.

If someone shows up at an airport with credentials identifying him as Timothy McVeigh, I don't want that guy flying either.

Yeah ... but we're talking about guys named "John Thompson" primarily.

Besides ... if a person has the capacity to forge a convincing "Mohammed Atta" ID wouldn't they make an ID of someone with a name associated with a country with little known terrorism?

Probably not. Why roll the dice on a "John Thompson" or "Kareem Ali" ID if he can be certain that Atta's name is off the list?

Besides, who merits more scrutiny, a middle-eastern-looking "John Thompson," or another arab named "Mohammed"?

The no-fly list is just a tool to automatically flag certain names for additional checking so busy airport folks don't blithely admit a potential terrorist. From what I've read about it, many of the names come from arrested forgers when they're interrogated about what IDs they've made.

I still don't see how leaving dead guys' names on the list means there's a conspiracy. It sounds to me like they're forcing the bad guys to pitch their old IDs and get new ones, hoping they screw up along the way. What's so bad about that?

It just raises the tiniest bit of suspicion that the names we have been told were the 9/11 hijackers might still be alive.

Peace activists are on the no-fly list. i'm hardly shaking in my boots over it.
