    ok, that's reasonable.  I wonder why he believes that, he wouldn't be privy to such information if that was the case or not

      ....than having the crew and passengers fight back.

    •  Well, from Hamdan's POV, which would you believe? (5+ / 0-)

      That the US responded to a potential threat by shooting down a hijacked plane, or that the passengers revolted, forcing the hijackers' hand?

      I'm not commenting one way or another, here, on what may or may not have occurred. I'm just saying that Hamdan was able to watch the news unfold in the days after 9/11, and I'm sure his take on the situation would be the one that casts the US government in the worst possible light.

      The premise of this diary is REAL interesting, and I'm willing to swish it around in my mouth for a little while, but let's also not see a conspiracy where none exists.

        as I said upthread, I am not saying that we shouldn't be skeptical.

        Perhaps I read the statement the wrong way and so my original point would be moot.

        It just jumped out at me, the way I read it of course, that this wasn't a CT nut but a prosecutor.

        I think perhaps now that I read it wrong, the clarification given could've been a little clearer
