just how did sweeney, olsen and beamer make those cell phone calls on 9/11?

CPL's picture

The plane never existed and never disappeared and they hired actors for camera on the ready?  Just a theory of course.

The story of 9/11 in its entirety is false.  A dim-witted monkey knows it, but try to get your average American to understand that.

johanngalt's picture

The hijackers dropped the planes to below 5000 feet on the way into NYC- that's how they could make the phone calls.  For chrissake, they've got volumes of recorded phone calls from dead people on those planes you fucking retards.  Put down the cheetos and wash your dicks.

I mentioned nothing about phone calls from planes.  The story of 9/11 in its entirety is false.

Johann the troll doesn't realize that even at 5000 ft the planes were traveling too fast to stay connected to cell towers.  Also, at 5000 ft, 500 mph will cause the plane to break apart.  But he's good with his impassioned sarcasm.  Guess that's why he's a troll.


Massimo Mazucco has the definitive overview of everything associated with 911

gogo STINKS! as a comsumer i think it's a garbage product. and another air related travel rip off.

Follow the money. Who benefit the most from the "attack". Huge financial and political gains were made as a direct result. Insurance payouts? Security contracts? Wars?

 Look towards those who benefit from such an act. It sure as hell wasn't Bin Laden.

  Anyone want to hazard a guess on who took out two massive short AA positions days before? For some reason the SEC had all documents related to that shredded.

sure thing... pretty cool how the long calls got transfered from cell tower to cell tower, even though the plane was travelling at several hundred miles an hour.  seriously, those were good old days for cell calls.   these days, i can't even get ATT to maintain a good call without dropping as i drive around town at 35 mph.

One of the better explanations of what happened, although there's a more updated Pentagon analysis.  It was written in 2003.


http://www.serendipity.li/wot/operation_pearl.htm (by A.K. Dewdney, PhD mathematics)

"Editor's note (September 2003):  Some people have said that this account of the events of September 11th 2001 (a detailed extension of the Valentine-Plissken Hypothesis) is "too convoluted to understand".  Actually it's quite simple.  Here's a synopsis for those who have a slight comprehension problem or don't have time to read it all: 

  1. Four commercial passenger jets (American Airlines Flights 11 and 77 and United Airlines Flights 93 and 175) take off and shortly after the pilots are ordered to land at a designated airport with a military presence.
  2. Two previously-prepared planes (one a Boeing 767, painted up to look like a United Airlines jet and loaded with extra jet fuel) take off and are flown by remote control to intercept the flight paths of AA 11 and UA 175 so as to deceive the air traffic controllers.
  3. These (substituted) jets then fly toward Manhattan; the first crashes into the North Tower and (eighteen minutes later) the second crashes into the South Tower.
  4. A fighter jet (under remote control), or a cruise missile, crashes into the Pentagon.
  5. Back at the airport the (innocent) passengers from three of the Boeings are transferred to the fourth (UA 93).
  6. This plane takes off, flies toward Washington, and is shot down by a U.S. Air Force jet over Pennsylvania, eliminating the innocent witnesses to the diversion of the passenger planes.
  7. Under cover of darkness later that evening the other three Boeings are flown by remote control out over the Atlantic, are scuttled and end up in pieces at the bottom of the ocean..."

remember how the banned using cell phones on flights right after 911?  had nothing to do with safety, afterall, no planes crashed before 911 due to cell calls...   in reality, this rule was to keep the people from realizing that phones don't work once you are in the air, proving the 911 stories to be utter fabrications...

Speaking from personal experience, phone calls do work on planes when they aren't at cruising altitude.  Even at cruising altitude I have had periods where my phone has service.

So.... the hijakerz were able to pull off a maneuver that would've broken the plane apart?  A devil dog pilot would not have been able to do that.  Not to mention...why were there no F-16's deployed as soon as it dropped below the threshold?  Take your head outta your anus, sir.

The hijackers dropped the planes to below 5000 feet on the way into NYC

That is simply not true.  Here is complete reserach on phone calls on 9/11:

Given the cell phone technology available in 2001, cell phone calls from airliners at altitudes of more than a few thousand feet, especially calls lasting more than a few seconds, were virtually – and perhaps completely – impossible. And yet many of the reported cell phone calls occurred when the planes were above 25,000 or even 40,000 feet24 and also lasted a minute or more – with Amy Sweeney’s reported call even lasting for 12 minutes.25

Three problems have been pointed out: (1) The cell phone in those days had to complete a “handshake” with a cellsite on the ground, which took several seconds, so a cell phone in a high-speed plane would have had trouble staying connected to a cellsite long enough to complete a call. (2) The signals were sent out horizontally, from cellsite to cellsite, not vertically. Although there was some leakage upward, the system was not designed to activate cell phones at high altitudes.26 (3) Receiving a signal was made even more difficult by the insulation provided by the large mass of an airliner.

Well-known Canadian scientist and mathematician A. K. Dewdney, who for many years had written a column for Scientific American, reported early in 2003 on experiments showing that these difficulties would have rendered impossible at least most of the reported cell phone calls from the 911 airliners.27 His experiments involved both single- and double-engine airplanes.

Dewdney found that, in a single-engine plane, successful calls could be counted on only under 2,000 feet. Above that altitude, they became increasingly unlikely. At 20,000 feet,

“the chance of a typical cellphone call making it to ground and engaging a cellsite there is less than one in a hundred…. [T]he probability that two callers will succeed is less than one in ten thousand.”

The likelihood of 13 successful calls, Dewdney added, would be “infinitesimal.”

Back then, they had those phones in the back of everyones seat.  I don't think those were "cell" phone calls that happened.  All you needed was a credit card to use the phone in the back of the seat.  I don't ever remember thinking they were cell phone calls that originated on any of those hijacked airplanes, I always assumed they were the built in ones in the back of the seat that people were using.

Even today, you can't use a cellphone at cruise, I have tried it.  I get no signal and can't even use the internet.

not available on the 911 planes...

The best 9/11 song - 9/11's a lie on FKN Newz.  The song starts at 4:57


Jadr's picture

I have made/received phone calls on planes when they are at lower altitudes.  Browsing the internet is nearly impossible but I've had text messages and phone calls work decently well on a few occassions.

Xibalba's picture

wait a sec...Att is just now making 4g available to passengers at 30,000ft?  How the hell did all those people call home on 9/11?

BREAKING 9/11 NEWS: FBI Says Barbara Olsen Did Not Call Ted Olsen. Bush Solicitor General Lied

We were fed a lie by Ted Olsen who served as Solictor General for the Bush Administration, when on 9/11 he held a press conference to tell America and the world that his dead wife had called him before her demise from the jet she was on that had just been hijacked.


Personally, I thought it was odd at the time that a man would decide to hold a press conference minutes after hearing of his own wife’s death, when it happened on 9/11.  If my own wife had just died, the last thing I’d want to do would be to talk to anyone, let alone call a press conference.  It didn’t “smell” right.


Now we know why it didn’t smell right.  It was a lie.  The FBI has reported that no such call between Barbara Olsen and Ted Olsen ever took place on 9/11/2001.

What I'm often wondering : What do 'they' do with all the people in all these false flag theatrical productions..??

Invent and deliver services no one ever needed to an industry that won't be around much longer.  Good job.  Whole team of monkey working around the clock on that 'offer' obviously.

lordylord's picture

Commercial air travel won't be around much longer?  Are the continents smashing in to each other faster than expected?

CPL's picture

Unless you are swimming or carrying them...nvm, wait for it.  It's going to be pretty weird soon.

Otherwise this is all recent news on what is happening in the airline industry.











My favorite...a lack of pilots.  Understand today that most flight rigs are being outfitted with the same technology that goes in drones because of the shortage of pilots. 

It's supposed to be a big secret but it's really noticable when tracking investments and proxy projects that spin out of drone technology.  So next time you step into a plane understand that all the parts in it are second hand and there possibly might be no pilot on the plane.  Anyone feel the blood leave their face yet?  No?

...there's a couple more things, but do your own research.







A clear picture of an industry is tough to find today because every piece of investment advice you recieve anywhere is now worthless.  Heads up though, the airline industry is broken badly.

Well, as long as they are not chinese products.

Oh, so NOW "investors" understood that this could also be done by somebody else than GOGO?

This would be so funny if it wouldn't be so sad.

Spitzer's picture

Tyler, usually you explain what these are.. Wtf is gogo ? And when is atandt going to introduce their own version snap chat and whatzap

mkhs's picture

Damn, even google will not let me do chat.

If this new service is as good as AT&T's wifi service in starbucks and McDonalds, Gogo doesn't have much to worry about, although from the one time I paid for it, gogo sucked too.


Where did all the volume to hit on the way down go?

NoDebt's picture

Anyone ever been on a flight that had this company's interent service.  I think I may have been not long ago.  If this is the one I'm thinking of..... it sucked.

cougar_w's picture

ATT will deliver late a service that doesn't work.

mumbo_jumbo's picture

if AT&T is involved it will suck donkey balls and be so slow as to be unusable, i should know i have their DSL service and they have a monopoly in my area.

i call them once a month to complain, the weekends are the worse for connectivity and also speed and i once said why don't you just charge me $1000 a month, it's not like i can go anywhere else. the price has more than doubled in 7 years for 2.5 MIPS download and .43 MIPS upload.

this internet is a nightmare and I've thought of moving my whole office just to get an internet that us usable.
