44. It makes sense to me that the hijackers thought they would hijack planes
to take them to Afghanistan with hostages to make demands.

But wouldn't it be muich easier if they hijacked a 747 and flew straight to Afghanistan? Why would they want to make extra stops? Who would be coordinating these movements and allow them to switch planes? I suppose they thought if they had hostages they could demand new planes?

And why would they put all the passengers on one plane? Just so it's easier to handle them? Who on the American side was coordinating the passenger movements? Someone at the airport had to allow this.

I like your idea a lot, but there is still a lot I don't understand. It sure would be great if you wrote it out somewhere!

And it sounds like the hijackings were real in your scenario, but I have trouble imagining real hijackings for the four 9/11 flights. They seem fake to me for a few reasons.
