106. And I've told you that I don't believe
Edited on Tue Oct-20-09 03:01 PM by GirlinContempt
they were altered to that extent. That is why I think she's lying, not because I "don't like her", which is silly. I don't know this person.

I read the story with my usual skepticism, heightened by the videos then released. I don't think most people are objective, and I don't really care that I'm not. She threw it out there in to the internets, not a court of law. We have to judge and assess situations as they come. Yes, I had a personal experience with a problem in an airport (well, biggest problem was on the actual airplane), I wouldn't call it an emotional connection to her story, just a comparison of reaction. I tried to suspend judgment, and I did for a while, but the additional information from her and the TSA makes me believe she's lying. You, or anyone else, don't have to agree with me. I don't expect people to hear that and say "ALY says she's lying so it MUST be true". If I'm wrong, I'm wrong and I'll own it. Frankly, I don't even know why I'm still posting about it because I don't even care that much. I do that a lot though, keep coming back to things and continuing conversations even though they aren't really that important (important to me personally, I'm sure it's very important to her and others involved).

It's ok that we don't agree. We don't have to. You can think she isn't lying, or wait to find out more, or think the TSA is up to no good, or whatever you want. The animosity about something so completely irrelevant isn't worth it, who cares what one person or another really thinks about this blog post? I shouldn't even have posted about it as much as I did, it isn't worth it. Initially, I was curious about it, and if/when the whole thing actually comes to light 100% for sure, I'll probably be curious enough to read it. But that's where it ends for me as of now.
