9-11 how lucky is that (flight 93)
 
the night before i was msning with a friend ( A A flight attendent out of bosten) who was killing time before heading to bed... he had to work on a flight from newark to San Francisco early the next morning....( i had met him earlier in guelph ont at a friends party) thought nothing of it.....that night when thing's sort of settle down at my fathers house ( where sarah and i camped out for the next few days after 9-11) and got a frantic e-mail from my friend in guelph to call her...flight 93 was down and our friend was on it!!!! my brother being a air line pilot, i tried to pull some string's and tried to conferm that our friend was on that flight....to no advil it didn't work...tried the cell phone and no answer........i belonged to a firefighters, ems, police chat group, and some of the guys i knew in washington and in new york we're gone for days but reported in....( he was a ret cop turn air line attendent) ....5 days had past and we already had a Memorial for him on our chat site.......well!! he popped in looked and said thanks guys!!!....it turned out a co worker wanted to work that flight...being the guy he is gave it to her and desided to fly home to ohio for a few days...leaving his lap top and cell in boston......could 9-11 have been stopped? it was reported by a inkeeper at goose rocks maine to the FBI a few days prior that 2 strange men had been lurking around portland (maine) jet port for a few days......the fbi brushed it off but interviewed the inkeeper that night (9-11)...why did george bush blame canada for the men who plotted the attacks?....wasn't it the u.s border agents who let them in?

That was lucky - for him.

Being politically correct here has gotten way out of hand.If two 'suspicious' men were reported before 9-11, nothing would have been done because the liberals have determined that kind of action was "profiling" and some how violated their rights.

No, I'm not kidding.

And the politicians have noooooo clue how tired the general population seems to be of this crap. Our election is gonna be very interesting, to say the least.

This friend is very fortunate. As for the rest there are thousands of what if's that came up regarding the incident. I don't think anyone could claim having an answer for that one. To many factors involved.

I will post what I always say tho. Everything happens for a reason.
