They Were Convinced it was Terrorism

Reader comment on item: Why Did American Airlines 587 Crash?

Submitted by Leonard W. (Israel), Sep 18, 2004 at 17:15

Flight 587 crashed in Queens, NY. People I know were near the crash site. They found leaflets spread nearby that proclaimed that it was a terrorist attack. They assumed these leaflets fell from the plane. Soon after, security people showed up and took away all the leaflets. These people were convinced that it was a terrorist attack even before the official explanation was made. After it was labeled an accident, they said it was probably a coverup.
