The 9/11 Passenger Paradox: Case Study of Flight 11

According to the official theory of the events of 9/11, all passengers of American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the World Trade Center and died upon impact.

Twelve years of research have produced a number of facts to contradict this assertion.  Among them are two courtesy of the original Bureau of Transportation records before they were altered:

  • American Airlines Flight 11 was never scheduled.
  • American Airlines Flight 11 never took off.

From these two facts, we can make the reasonable inference that no one boarded Flight 11 and took off in it.

We can also infer that people said to have been passengers on Flight 11 were either (a) real people who went somewhere else or (b) were not real people.

Recently, I received an email from a man who claimed he knew a specific person said to be a passenger on Flight 11.  He alluded to a source who claimed that he overheard the passenger, whom I will call “11X”, calling a taxi on the morning of September 11, 2001 and then saw board with luggage a taxi shortly thereafter.  He claims neither he nor anyone else who knew him has seen 11X again.

In this essay, I will assume the good faith of the claims of the man who emailed me.  Let’s say that 11X was in fact a real person who indicated to others he would take a flight from Boston to Los Angeles on that morning and that 11X’s name ended up on a passenger list (whether it was an unofficial list or the manifest is not at issue here).

How does this stipulation fit in with the facts established about the flight?

11X shows up at Boston Logan Airport.  He goes to one of the two gates alleged for Flight 11’s departure, Gate 26 or Gate 32.  He boards the plane he believes is Flight 11.

What happened there is subject to debate.  A writer on the “Let’s Roll Forums” came up with what I believe is the best explanation.  Here is the link.  My summation follows:


The writer, who goes by the nickname “LoopDLoop,” asserts that the plane was used as a simulation, which would explain phone calls made by flight attendants about hijackings on a flight that never flew.  Loop cites an early interview of airport personnel who saw the plane for Flight 11 on the ground quite some time after its alleged 7:59 AM take off.

As for the “passengers,” Loop does not know for sure what became of them but suggests that no one remained on board, but rather, that the people needed for the simulation took the airplane phone with them to another location to conduct the simulation.

What was next for 11X?

He could have left the airport at this point, but as we know he did not return home again, this scenario seems unlikely.  It would leave him without any purpose.

If he intended to go to Los Angeles, he would have looked for another flight out there.  If he expected that Flight 11 would not take off, he would have likely arrived at the airport ready to go to his next place.

In either case, the most likely possibility would have put him at Gate 19 for United Airlines Flight 175.

As I have pointed out in books on this subject, he had time to get from either Gate 32 or Gate 26 to go to Gate 19.  I have suggested he (and other passengers) could have been “taxied” to Gate 19.  Some say that such a plane would have been noticed.  Maybe so. If it were noticed, there is no telling if anyone reporting it would have been believed.  Furthermore, the plane would have gone around a corner, possibly losing the interest of onlookers.  With a little effort, passengers could make the distance on foot, anyway.

In any case, 11x now boards United 175.

If he had an American Flight 11 ticket, he could have quickly gone to the United Airlines booth and exchanged tickets for the 175 flight.  And who is to say what ticket 11x held?  With no direct information on this matter, it is possible he was instructed to go to United 175 all along.

United 175 takes off (late, according to some sources).  Thanks to ACARS, we know that this flight was over Western Pennsylvania TEN MINUTES after its supposed crash into World Trade Center Two.  We also know that an unidentified plane (by flight number) landed in Cleveland some time later, matching the description of the plane for United 175.

This places 11X at the Cleveland Hopkins Airport.

Newspaper articles noted a large group of passengers walking from the area where the unidentified plane landed toward a building managed by NASA.  This walk takes place long after the airport has been evacuated!

11X goes into the NASA building.

There are no facts available after this point.  His execution or his decision to hide both explain his absence.  Those who insist he was murdered could point to his character or his ties to the community but neither prove the point.  If he went hiding (as an agent, for example), there may be circumstantial evidence of participation in a plan but not enough evidence to prove that point.

Those who plotted this crime are probably laughing at us for being unable to untangle the mess they left for us.  It is my hope that presenting this essay will spark an idea or uncover a fact to get past this paradox.

Shallel, I believe Barbara Olson changed her identity after 9/11.  She may have become Booth but I cannot say for sure.  In any case, the tale of her calling Ted was a part of a psychological operation to get the public to connect with the "loss" of someone they had heard of.  Please let me know what you find out about her.  Thanks! Dean

Interesting thread on LRF... 

Thanks, Dean. I guess Barbara Olsen could be considered a "Vicsim", although with her CIA background was good enough to play herself in the drama... 

Dastardly stuff.

"Is Barbara Olson back from the dead?  An anonymous person sent me a photo of Barbara Olson (said to have died on 9-11) side-by-side with an image of Lady Booth, the wife of Theodore Olson, former U.S. Solicitor General.  There is no doubt that these two women look nearly identical.  The question is whether the Barbara Olson (born Barbara Kay Bracher in Houston on December 27, 1955) is the same person as Lady Evelyn Booth (born in Louisville, Kentucky, on October 26, 1960) - or do they simply look very similar?  While it is certainly possible with plastic surgery and the theft of an identity that this could happen, it is also possible that Ted simply chose a new wife that looked very much like his previous wife.

The similarity between the two wives of Ted Olson is remarkable.  Is Lady Booth really Barb Olson after plastic surgery?  The face on the right seems to have had cosmetic surgery.

This is a very interesting question, which I will look into.  What is very interesting about Barbara Bracher is that she earned her Juris Doctor at Yeshiva University in New York City.  Yeshiva University is a private Jewish school which is very Jewish.  Why would a young Catholic girl, who had worked for H.B.O. and Stacy Keach in Hollywood, choose to study law at Yeshiva University?  It is likely that Barb Olson has Jewish roots, from the Schneider family, for example, and that this is why she chose Yeshiva University.  The second odd thing about Barbara Bracher is that she lived in McLean, Virginia in the early 1990s which makes one wonder if she was working for the C.I.A. 

While Barbara Olson had very close connections to orthodox Jews and Zionism, her husband actually worked to protect the crimes of the state of Israel when he defended the Israeli spy, Jonathan Jay Pollard.  Ted and Barbara Olson were closely tied to Israeli intelligence, a fact that has to be taken into consideration while pondering their role in supporting the official lies about what happened on 9-11.

At Yeshiva University, Ted Olson recalled that Barbara Bracher had been the person who officially kicked the Palestinian office out of the United States:

In her third year of law school [Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University], Barbara somehow managed to finesse herself into an internship in the Department of Justice in Washington. And, as a very brassy and gutsy intern, she managed to be the only employee of the government of the United States willing, feisty, and fearless enough to personally serve the papers on the PLO mission to the United Nations in New York announcing that it was being expelled from this country—because they were terrorists. How proud Barbara was to tell that story to her friends at Cardozo!"

Andy, Hoi and September Clues have done a fantastic job reporting on "vicsims" on 9/11. The list offers an explanation of supposed victims on a macro level. But it does not explain the Flight 175 takeoff from Boston and its landing in Cleveland. Exactly who took that plane and who walked toward the NASA building at Hopkins airport is still unanswered. I keep an open mind as to "11X" and others for whom there is some evidence of.

Dean, what is your reaction to Hoi Polloi's "Vicsim Report" over at the Septemberclues.info website?  This remarkable pdf document intricately dissects CNN's semi-official "9/11 Memorial" website which, when it was put up a decade ago, contained hundreds of highly suspicious (apparently morphed or Photoshopped) photos and very questionable biographical data about many of the flight-crew members, passengers, office workers, first responders and bystanders who are alleged to have died on 9/11.
