Why did numerous ear-witnesses say at least one attacker was firing a fully-automatic weapon?


16 year-olds aren't firearms experts

Why did police concentrate on setting up a perimeter at the same time dispatch(via phone) is hearing the sound of gunshots within the school?


see: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/30283811/ns/u ... e-tactics/

Why did it take police so long to enter the school, and why did it take almost three hours for them to reach the library, the area where the shooters were last seen? Who gave the orders not to go in?


see: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/30283811/ns/u ... e-tactics/

If the two shooters committed suicide shortly after noon, as police claim, how come at least 35 witnesses saw or heard suspects/gunshots/explosions after that time?


see: http://dylanklebold.com/columbine-shoot ... gh-school/

Why are there conflicting eyewitness accounts on the place and manner in which at least four of the dead victims were killed?


fog of war

How did students manage to keep seriously wounded teacher Dave Sanders alive for more than three hours while awaiting rescue, yet he was dead within 20 minutes of the police taking control of him? His corpse was later found with his shirt off. Is that first-aid?


yes

If you want to fly, you just have to throw yourself face first at the ground and believe you will fly. You will succeed if you truly believe you can fly, but if there is one atom of doubt in your mind you will hit the ground.

OK, now lets all try it.

I was quoting a book, but I can't for the life of me remember which book it was. I think I read it at least 10 years ago.

I don't usually put much stock in what well-known Larouchists like Wayne Madsen, Webster Tarpley, et. al. say are "100% certain" but, in this case ...



... I wonder if it was the GRAIN CARTEL that ordered the hit???

It's one of the Douglas Adams ones. "Mostly Harmless"?

also, I think you have to not notice you're flying rather than believe you can do it.
