    There is only one thing which would make me think the Airlines are responsible for 9/11 and that was an article that was on the net on 9/12 but gone two days later that said the box cutters used by the hijackers were placed there by the cleaning crew, many of which were illegal immigrants.

    Since that article is gone, I have to assume either A) our government doesn't want us to know that illegals were responsible for 9/11 or B) illegals are not responsible for 9/11.

    Now if the cleaning crew didn't plant the box cutters on the airplanes, I can't see how you could possibly blame the airlines for 9/11. They lost the most on that day. United Airlines lost 2 planes, several crew members as well as employees that were flying on passes and friends of employees that were flying on passes. Everyone at United lost their pension plans. Many of them lost their jobs. Those that were left took several pay cuts...how much exactly do you want them to pay?

    I think the idea of a pension plan is a bit outdated. You're supposed to work and save, work and save, work and save. Not work and spend, work and spend, work and spend and then when you retire, you'll make the same salary for the next 20 years as you made in your final year. I think companies set this up after the Great Depression, but never took into account what would happen if the company could no longer afford to pay its pensions.

    The pensions were money that was suppose to be placed into a safe fund and it was part of their pay. In the 70's changes in corporate law allowed companies to use the pension fund as assets or even borrow from it.

    I think it's wrong for corporations to promise a pension and then not deliver because they didn't think it through. It's like telling someone that they're not getting paid for work they already did.

    I agree bad taste, but what if a plane landed in your house and took it out? Would you not want compensation from the company that took your house out? Now image if your house is worth billions of dollars, in which your insurance company runs to the hills instead of paying?

    Or the reports that emerged in Newsweek, the Washington Post, and the New York Times that at least “five of the alleged hijackers received training in the 1990s at secure US military installations”, including Mohamed Atta who attended International Officers School at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama. The US Air Force later argued that they “might not” be the same persons, due to some “biographical discrepancies” – which of course were never revealed to the public. When Senator Bill Nelson tried to investigate, shocked at the possibility that Pensacola Naval Air Station could have hosted and trained Saeed Alghamdi, Ahmed Alghamdi, among others, he was told by the FBI – after several weeks - that they were trying to work through something “complicated and difficult.” Daniel Hopsicker, a former Producer at PBS Wall Street Week and investigative report at NBC News, decided to investigate. After pressing an official at the Defense Department, he was finally told: “I do not have the authority to tell you who attended which schools” – in other words, terrorists did train at secure US military installations, but who trained where is none of our concern. It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that these people were, for reasons undisclosed, protected.

    and in conclusion it happened on Clinton's watch. That's why he dosen't want to talk about it. and that is why the Gov. made sure the families of the victims got payoff so they would not sue the Federal Gov. Good luck to Silverstein, he will probably win his 2 Billion.
