Debunking 'United 93' debunkers

From: Bredon Clay, DeKalb, IL

This is in response to the letter that you printed from Frank Cecrle citing evidence that Flight 93 was shot down deliberately as well as repeating many other well-worn urban myths about the WTC attack.

Of course, he can, and probably will, still refuse to believe that. But if he is going to be talking about open-mindedness, he should at least understand that just because a film does not subscribe to his view of the events of September 11th, 2001, does not make it a propaganda piece.
