    Inside 9/11: Zero Hour on National Geographic

    It's the best documentary done to date detailing what to take place and who knew what and when. Turns out the military were involved far earlier, the flight attendants and passengers of all four planes were in communication with the ground almost immediately. The weak link in the chain seems to be the FAA coordinating with the Department of Defense. They include some of the footage of the jumpers so be careful watching this with kids. Death accompanied by Muzak is surreal.

    It's really, really, hard to watch this. :frown1:

    Thats been around for a while, I agree it is the most complete documentary on 9/11. Unreal when they play some of the messages left by people in the building.

    I find it amazing that collectively we continue to refer to that location as "Ground Zero",
    even though supposedly no "high-energy"* explosions took place there...
    and we don't refer to any other location of major tragedies with the same "GZ" label.

    And though I'm so NOT (not, not... did I mention not) a conspiracy theorist... and I've seen all the alternative 9/11 research from the physicist, scientist and engineer communities (ex. - AE911Truth) and even (911 University) -
    for my money - I'm tending to agree w/ non-conventional explosives involved...

    (* ie: HIGH energy explosions... not exploding crashes w/ jet fuel...)

    In the buildings, on the planes, on the ground. Two women I worked with had husbands in the north tower. When it collapsed one woman, my boss, fainted. The other just screamed. My boss's husband, a fireman, miraculously survived, jumping from platform to platform from the tenth floor with another man on his back, when he heard the first rumble. The other woman's husband talked to her only a few minutes before but he was on the 33rd floor. He didn't make it and she knew it.

    Fuck that day sucked.

    I could imagine how uncomfortable and rather terrifying it must be for some Americans to watch a documentary like that. When it first came out, i watched with my full attention and thought it was excellent in how it detailed everything on that day. I still remember where i was when it happened (in high school and during an assembly, a moment of silence was held). During the moment of silence, I still remember being surprised about the whole thing and our reactions even in the Bahamas, but then i totally understood the gravity of the situation when i came home from school and turned on CNN. Sad day, but it's good to see how New York recovered so wonderfully from it.

    I saw a few minutes of it -- I don't really like reliving that day but I guess now I will try and catch the whole thing.

    The conspiracy theories have always seemed too far-fetched,a manifestation of severe paranoia.Most of us don't really want to think about the possibilities,as David Lynch says here :

    The imbeciles who put together loose change also have some loose screws.

    They don't even understand how an accordion works...
