United 93

"A persuasively narrated, scrupulously tasteful re-creation of the downing of the fourth and final plane hijacked by Islamist terrorists on Sept. 11," writes Manohla Dargis of the New York Times.

On September 18, according to CNN, "FBI Director Robert Mueller said a preliminary investigation indicated 18 hijackers were on the four planes," and "U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell named suspected terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden as one of the primary suspects in the hijackings and crashes."

But we're not persuaded. Here's a few reasons why:
- Why are the alleged hijackers' names not on the passenger lists released by the Associated Press on September 17, 2001?
- Why were several of the alleged hijackers reported to be alive by BBC News on September 23, 2001?

And in a speech at the prestigious Commonwealth Club of California on April 19, 2002, Mueller IIIadmitted: "In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper—either here in the United States, or in the treasure trove of information that has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere—that mentioned any aspect of the September 11 plot."
