WTF? That's their job, to thoroughly investigate airplane wrecks and determine the cause. So why didn't they investigate the tragic events of 9/11 properly?
Are we just supposed to trust what the FBI and Richard
"Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name" Cheney has said all along about 9/11?
NTSB Elaborates On Absent Records Pertaining To Positively Identified 9/11 Aircraft Wreckage, Including 2 Flight Data Recorders
Within a August 11, 2008 Freedom of Information Act appeal reply from the National Transportation Safety Board, the NTSB affirms that it possesses no records pertaining to positively identified wreckage recovered from the 4 aircraft involved in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Such wreckage includes the Flight Data Recorders attributed by the NTSB in Factual Reports to American Airlines flight 77 and United Airlines flight 93.

Dear Mr. Monaghan:
I write in response to your letter, which the Safety Board received on July 31, 2008, in which you appealed the response of the National Transportation Safety Board's FOIA Officer to your FOIA request for "copies of records revealing the process by which wreckage recovered from the aircraft used during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, was positively identified as belonging to: American Airlines [flights 11 and 77], and United Airlines [flights 175 and 93]." Your request opined that the Safety Board must have utilized unique serial numbers of components from each of the four aircraft in order to identify the wreckage from each aircraft. The Safety Board's FOIA Officer responded to your original request on July 18, 2008, in which the FOIA Officer indicated that the Board did not have any records within the scope of your request.
And from the excellent blog of Willy Loman,here's more:
There’s a guy named Aidan Monaghan who has been attempting to get the records from the NTSB that show how they determined what flights hit what buildings on Sept 11th 2001.
It should be a pretty straight forward request actually, considering that the NTSB does analysis of the parts that are recovered from every plane crash, verifies that they came from the plane in question, then they tie the ownership of those parts to that flight number of that airline.
In hijacking situations that result in crashes, they typically, like with flight 800, take all the parts and reconstruct the plane as best they can in order to determine what happened in those last few minutes. You would think that might be useful in the case of Flight 93, that apparently crashed, on it’s own accord, and disappeared into a hole in the ground (first time I ever saw that on dry land).
But, as Mr. Monaghan has discovered thru his pains taking work of filing FOIA requests over and over again, the NTSB DID NOT in fact verify the part numbers on these planes and they did not verify the flight numbers with the airlines.
So, as it turns out, there is NOTHING BUT THE FBI’s SAYSO that connects ANY of the flight numbers to the wreckage found. I do believe this is the first time in our history that the normal process of the NTSB was NOT followed to the letter.
Who says the NTSB didn’t verify the part numbers on the wreckage and that the FBI provided THEM with that information? Why, the NTSB says so. That’s who.
From the "It gets weirder and weirder file," the acting head of the NTSB at the time of 9/11, is one Carol Carmody,
who is a former CIA agent.
Carmody was also in charge of the investigation of the plane crash death/assassination? of then Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone, which opened the way for the Republicans to take over the Senate.
Wellstone voted against authorizing Bush to go to war against Iraq.
