Mom, This is Mark Bingham

By James B.

One of the subjects the 9/11 deniers frequently bring up is the Mark Bingham phone call. Jim Fetzer in particular seems to find this especially hilarious. As Loose Change says:

A man claiming to be Mark Bingham called his mother, Alice, who was visiting his sister-in-law. The caller says, "Mom? This is Mark Bingham."
When was the last time you called your mother and used your full name?

Well, why don't they ask his mom? From a Discovery Channel interview with Mark's mother, Alice Hoglan:

Hoglan: I was staying with my brother Vaughan on the morning of September 11th, and, uh, the phone rang.

Bingham (reconstruction): Mom... Mom, this is Mark Bingham.

Hoglan: Once in a while he would say that. He would call up, and he was, he was a young businessman, and used to, used to introduce himself on phone as Mark Bingham, and he was trying to be, uh, strong, and level-headed, and, and strictly business. "Mom, this is Mark Bingham".

So how did the conspirators know that Mark Bingham would address his mother in this unusual way? Even more, how did they know to call his mom at her in-law's house? The "fake"Mark talked to three people, how was he able to tell who was who? How did he manage to fool all three of them in real time? Come on Dylan, you are claiming to be looking for the truth. Answer this. Or are you going to claim she had her son killed, just like you did to Bernard Brown Sr?
