Flight 93 headed towards Pittsburgh instead of the White House? Preposterous you say.
Well maybe but then again Pittsburgh has a secret most people do not know about back in 2001.
Its that the AT&T building in downtown right across the street from USX Tower on Grant Street and this building handles all international call and most of the internet traffic in and out of North America as well as much of cross country traffic at that time . Had the terrorists managed to knock the USX Tower into the AT&T building the damage and confusion caused by losing all those lines as well as what was going on in New York would have been devastating.
In fact the day of 9-11 US marshals with automatic weapons formed a perimeter around this building to protect it as well as federal court house as seen on KDKA TV 2 and other local stations that day.
I am not the only one to realize this possible scenario I have talked to many others including pilots who say it could have been done I am just the first to write and talk about it that I know of.
In fact this same scenario could have well played out in New York as well as Nyex Telephone Exchange supplier to wall street could have been knocked out as well when the towers fell imagine the confusion and severe financial loss that could have been created had wall street been knocked out for months to a year compared to a couple days. Had this or Pittsburgh been pulled off it would have created tremendous panic in the streets when no one can communicate.
with just the towers themselves falling many large radio and TV stations went off the air in New York
luckily some had back up sites but most did not. There is nothing worse during a panic than the ability to not be able to communicate to authority or loved ones. During 9-11 it happened nation wide for several hours where phone lines where jammed but imagine picking up the phone going on internet and having nothing.
If you go to the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville Pa. and look at the placard which shows the flight path of 93 although yes it looks like it is headed for the White House it flew right over Pittsburgh
OK so if it was the USX tower they where after why did they fly over Pittsburgh and not hit it ? this would have been when the fight broke out on board and the pilot was distracted and unable to take the objective. It is only a few seconds flight time from Pittsburgh to Shanksville the fight aboard would have been well under way.
One would have to believe that well planned terrorists would have more than one objective to hit if they where unable to hit the initial targets . It should also be noted that only a few air miles from where the plane went down are important towers which provide Cross country phone and data communication as well . Of course miles of fiber optics has been laid now along railroad tracks to help harden up communications but in 2001 not nearly the amount was available like it is today.
If it is true there was a fight and this brought down the plane which in all likely hood did happen
despite conspiracy kooks who insist a jet shot it down. Which yes there was a white jet seen in area but this was a small private corporate jet the FAA controllers asked to look for the flight after it dropped off radar.
Of course all I have proposed is speculation and I doubt we will ever get the whole truth on 9-11
but what I conjecture makes a lot more sense than so many of the outright bizarre conspiracy's now floating on the internet. I do not belive our goverment was involved in this attack bu that their laxness allowed it .I and others have always said we are too open to attack . Becuse just like the known EMP threats to this country we know people want to kill us every day but we ignore the dangers and do not harden up our infrastructure.
If you understand communications and also understand its importance then you know just how devastating 9-11 would have been had we lost international and cross country communications.
