21. ad hominem attacks will get you nowhere
You guys don't have anything specific to say about the evidence but instead attack the mere idea of it. As if people should be embarrassed to mention "your pod is showing".

So you consider the truth a popularity fad, hoping it will go out of fashion? There is nothing you are discrediting but yourself with such an attack.

Look at the videos people. And try to ignore the low level of comments attached to the videos, and here. They are just trying to scare you away from discovering what they couldn't hide.


"The Appendage or Pod on the Fuselage of "Flight 175" One of the more controversial issues among 911 researchers, if for no other reason than it is so obvious and easy to see that something is terribly wrong with this aircraft. It was recorded and shown by all News Media sources, CNN, ABC, FOX, New York Times, Camera-Planet, Newsday Magazine and countless others. It doesn't matter what it is. What matters is that it shouldn't be there, and shows beyond reasonable doubt that this was not Flight 175, which took off from Boston International Airport on 911."

"Boeing was asked to identify this equipment, obvious in almost all the news photos from 911. They refused to identify it, and instead suggested that these questions be answered by the 911 Omission."
