Possible 9/11 Plane Landing Gear Part Found in NYC [at the proposed mosque site]
ABC News ^ | April 26th, 2013 | Jake Pearson

Posted on 04/26/2013 4:40:23 PM PDT by Third Person

A rusted 5-foot-tall piece of landing gear believed to be from one of the hijacked planes destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks has been discovered near the World Trade Center wedged between a luxury apartment building and a mosque site that prompted virulent national debate about Islam and freedom of speech. The twisted metal part, jammed in a sliver of open space between the buildings, has cables and levers on it and is about 3 feet wide and 1.5 feet deep. It includes a clearly visible Boeing Co. identification number, New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said Friday. "The odds of this being wedged between there is amazing," Browne said, adding it was not surprising that it went undiscovered for more than a decade given the location. "It had to have fallen just the right way to make it into that space." Other World Trade Center wreckage had been discovered at the buildings and around the area in years past. The piece of equipment was discovered Wednesday by surveyors inspecting the lower Manhattan site of a planned Islamic community center, at 51 Park Place, on behalf of the building's owner, police said. An inspector was on the roof and noticed the debris and then called 911. Police secured the scene, documenting it with photos. Police detectives and National Transportation Safety Board investigators will determine whether the equipment is from the American Airlines plane or the United Airlines plane that slammed into the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, destroying the towers and killing nearly 3,000 people.

Man. I’ll bet CAIR is going to do a lot of whining about this. Accusing the Americans of “stirring up old bad memories” and hatred of the Muzzies.

Now in this case I must agree with Hillary..."at this point, what does it matter?"

The leader of the Mosque said it was far enough away from ground zero to have a mosque there. It was far enough away to be “respectful”. Now we find part of the plane, which to me is part of ground zero, wedged against the mosque. Gotta be respectful the mosque spokesman said, so GET OUT!

Also, the tin foil hat side of me says it was put there, after 9/11, as a symbol to those radicals in the mosque, a symbol of “victory” , but that’s just me strung out on flu medicine I guess. (Sick today :( )

Leave it to an ABC ahole reporter to categorize legitimate debate over the proposed mosque as “virulent” national debate.

As time has proven, the whole “mosque” and center affair was a fraud, and the key players in it basically Islamic criminals (a story not told by much of the media). And their ties to Islamic extremists has also been revealed.

But then again, ABC is justifiably known as the All Bullcrap Channel, so this type of writing is par for them.

When the new Islamic center is completed, how long will it be until the armory in the basement “accidentally” detonates?

At this stage, does it make much difference whether the debris is from the American plane or the United plane? Can we learn anything more of significance about the events of 9/11 from studying this piece of wreckage? I tend to think that the answers to both questions are "no."

About the only thing positive that may come out of this new discovery is more determined opposition to the construction of the proposed super-mosque, which ironically was planned for the same location where the debris was found.

“...which ironically was planned for the same location where the debris was found.”

There is NO irony. No scarring was found on adjacent walls, ergo, the fragment of landing gear was placed there, most likely as a trophy.

Looking at the current prices for steel and aluminum at Vito’s Salvage and Scrap Metals in Jersey, I doubt if the one who placed it was holdng it as a nest egg.
