The 23 Biggest 9/11 Coincidences
10. JOHN ASHCROFT STOPPED FLYING COMMERCIALLY
Despite everyone in government playing stupid that they had no idea attacks were coming, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, was advised by the FBI to stop taking commercial flights as reported by CBS on July 26, 2001.
The FBI claimed this issue was the result of a threat assessment and "neither the FBI nor the Justice Department... would identify what the threat was, when it was detected or who made it," CBS News reported.

14. THE SHORTING OF AIRLINE STOCKS
On September 6, 2001, airline stocks, including United and American, suddenly had a put/call ratio 25 times higher than normal. Over the next few days, as the numbers kept climbing, Bloomberg reported a high on airline put options that was as much as 285 times their average.
