‘…Until now, Lewin’s story has remained untold-mainly out of respect for friends and family who closely guarded their memories of the brilliant commando-turned computer scientist. In addition, the official reports of what happened on Flight 11 were, for some time, conflicting and confusing. A memo mistakenly released by the Federal Aviation Administration stated that terrorist Satam al-Suqami shot and killed Lewin with a single bullet around 9:20 a.m. (obviously inaccurate, as the plane crashed at 8:46 a.m.).

‘The media got the story all wrong because the panic paradigm is still pervasive and because no one in the media had read the disaster-research literature. –
Mind bending 9/11 “coincidences”
Kevin Ryan on “Another 19 Suspects”
‘Anyone who thinks that hundreds, even thousands, of people can’t keep a secret is an idiot.
‘Ever heard of “The Manhattan Project?” Thousands of people kept it secret that the US was developing a nuclear bomb during World War II.
‘Millions of people are involved in a global industry that’s as big as the consumer electronics business – the illegal drug business – and expect for arrests of users and very low level street dealers, the industry operates in secret.
