Flight 93 Memorial construction to start in Nov.

Associated Press Writer

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The federal government will pay about $9.5 million to acquire land so the Flight 93 National Memorial can be built by the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Monday.

With the National Park Service reaching agreements with eight landowners, construction is expected to start in November, Salazar said.

Salazar called the site where the plane crashed, near Shanksville in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, hallowed ground and said the nation was "eternally grateful for the heroes of Flight 93."

United Flight 93 was traveling from Newark, N.J., to San Francisco when it was diverted by hijackers with the likely goal of crashing it into the White House or Capitol. The official 9/11 Commission report said the hijackers crashed the plane as passengers tried to wrest control of the cockpit.

All 33 passengers and seven crew members died.

The agreements cover nearly 1,400 acres and include the actual impact site. That site sits on a 275-acre parcel owned by quarry business Svonavec Inc. The company and the government agreed in January to allow a court to decide the property's worth.

Salazar said the $9.5 million includes the Svonavec site. It also covers relocating a scrap metal and recycling business owned by Anthony Kordell and about 950 acres owned by Families of Flight 93, which has been acquiring land and fundraising for the memorial.

Lisa Linden, a spokeswoman for the family group, said it was "tremendously relieved" that the core land acquisition had been completed.

Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., also welcomed the announcement. He brought Salazar together with landowners in June in hopes of avoiding the government using eminent domain to acquire the lands.

"The landowners deserve our deepest thanks for their cooperation and the sacrifices they have made to allow for construction of the memorial to honor the passengers and crew of Flight 93, who gave their lives to save countless others on September 11th," Specter said in a statement.

Some property owners complained this year that the government had not provided them offers, or had done so only recently, despite claims that negotiations had been ongoing.

Christine Williams, whose family owned about 6 acres with a log cabin they had planned to retire to, said she was pleased to settle, given the alternative of government seizure.

"It was just a matter of someone sitting down at the table and saying 'Yes, we can do this.' And no one had," Williams said Monday.

She said that she has been paid but that her family hasn't found another cabin. They must be out in October.

Looks like the Woman who by chance snapped the "ordnance" photo

will get a second check.


So now this land will be turned into another pilgrimage site. The Let's Roll memorial site? I wonder who will buy the land if and when we manage to reveal the truth about the day? I wonder if they've got an Option B for the place?

Might I suggest...

...that, like Ground Zero...

...this be considered a FANTASTIC site which provides an opportunity to peform CI...Civil Informationing to get our POWERFUL information planted [ POLITELY ] right into the hands of THE most radical people who believe the OCT...

If AJ shows up and begins to yell "sheeple" and harrasses them using his true gift in communications...antagonism...no good will come of it...simple as that.

But, if some FAB Truthers [PUUUUHHHLEEESE...NO RON PAUL DRONES!!!!!!] politely offer opposing information on each and every 9/11, there is little doubt that some of our most fervent critics...

...will become passionate advocates and Truthers...

Ever smoke in front of an X smoker? GEEESH!

IF we adopt the principles of CI...Civil Informationing...
and respect the "space" of visitors...they will return that respect.

AND WONDERFULLY...from what I'm seeing more and more of as of late, there is far less "crying in 9/11 Truth" now. And many, many more Truthers are coming to understand that an event , a TV show, a video or an article which opposes the 9/11 TRUTH [for World PEACE] Movement...it creates yet another opportunity for us to respond and spread the TRUTH...thusly...these Truthers are turning the tables and taking advantage of the opportunity. BRAVO!

In the end...we will turn the HI PERP's intended interpretation of: "Remember 9/11" into the very sword upon which they will fall...and it will become the reason that they will to go to prison...

This time is coming...and it AIN'T gonna happen by YELLING AT PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!...let me YELL AT YOU...STOP YELLING AT PEOPLE...

All but 25% of our citizenry are somewhat reasonable...

...that leaves about 75% who are potentially convincible with our evidence...

[well...the 10% of Knee Jerk Liberals are certainly way beyond reasonable too...but they may be on our side in spite of themselves...]

Instead of yelling, how about we start by simply talking with them at all these cool opportunities that will continue to surface all the time.

Remember, the HI PERPS and their media whore minions will get more and more uptight...and more hot under the collar...and will work harder and harder at TRYING to develop opportunities to keep their story lines out...and their self-services hidden...

SO...we should be at the ready to hand out some 9/11 Truth [for World Peace] info that exposes these corporate thugs as to who they are...and what they are up to...whenever and wherever such opportunities arise....

love, peace and progress...with:


...just for starters as we collectivize to throw theses criminal politicians [sorry for the redundancy] out of office...

Final resting place

Just as a point of information, has there ever been an excavation into the "old mineshaft" to find the "buried airplane"? Or did I miss it? If not, why not?
