Autopsy: No Arabs on Flight 77

By Thomas R. Olmsted, M.D I am an ex Naval line officer and a psychiatrist in private practice in New Orleans, a Christian and home school dad. It troubled me a great deal that we rushed off to war on the flimsiest of evidence. I considered various ways to provide a smoking gun of who and why Sept 11th happened. Astute observers noticed right away that there were no Arabic sounding names on any of the flight manifests of the planes that “crashed” on that day. A list of names on a piece of paper is not evidence, but an autopsy by a pathologist, is. I undertook by FOIA request, to obtain that autopsy list and you are invited to view it below. (1) Guess what? Still no Arabs on the list. It is my opinion that the monsters who planned this crime made a mistake by not including Arabic names on the original list to make the ruse seem more believable. When airline disasters occur, airlines will routinely provide a manifest list for anxious families. You may have noticed that even before Sep 11th, that airlines are pretty meticulous about getting an accurate headcount before takeoff. It seems very unlikely to me, that five Arabs sneaked onto a flight with weapons. This is the list provided by American of the 56 passengers:

American Airlines Flight 77, from Washington to Los Angeles, crashed into the Pentagon with 64 people aboard.

produce the names of all the bodies identified by the AFIP and compare it with the publicized list of passengers. I figured that the government would want to quickly dispel any rumors so we could get on with the chore of kicking Osama/Sadaam’s butt (weren’t these originally two different people?). being the trusting sort. . The AA list only had 56 and the list just obtained has 58. The satanic masterminds behind this caper may be feeling pretty smug about the perfect crime. but they have not responded. They did not explain how they were able to tell “victims” bodies from “hijacker” bodies. Fourteen months later. Now. three ADDITIONAL people not listed by American Airline sneaked in. The new names are: Robert Ploger. Zandra Ploger. 5 .The AFIP suggest these numbers. whose parents and young sister are on the list of those identified. Believe me that they weren’t a bit happy to give it up. but they have left a raft of clues tying these unfortunates together. and I really have no idea why they choose now to release it. The AFIP claims that the only “passenger” body that they were not able to identify is the toddler. from the beginning NO explanation has been given for the extra five suggested in news reports except that the FBI showed us the pictures to make up the difference. I sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the AFIP and asked for an expedited response. So. however. many Iraqi civilians pushing up daisies. 125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were “passengers” on the plane. It seemed simple to me. 189 killed. a few US soldiers dead.

I did give American the opportunity to “revise” their original list. because we were getting ready to send our boys to war on the pretext that Osama/Sadaam had done the deed. and I finally get the list. Stay tuned for part two to take a much closer look of the cast of characters on this ill-fated flight. Dana Falkenberg.
