A.K. Dewdney

Alexander Keewatin (A.K.) Dewdney, a professor of computer science at the University of Western Ontario, had a Computer Recreations column in Scientific American. He writes lots of books about math and science and the environment and computers and logic and reason and bad science. His latest book, Beyond Reason, tells how, despite media spin, there are things that are beyond our ability to know or do or make, like squaring the circle or building perpetual motion machines or predicting the future of chaotic systems. The guy really knows a lot.

His analysis of cell phone calls from airliners, such as those we all heard about on 9/11/2001, is eye opening.
Under the weight of evidence that the cellphone (not airfone) calls were essentially impossible as described by the Bush White House and the major media on the day in question, we have no alternative but to give serious consideration to the operational possibilities, as outlined here.

And what he outlines "here" is the way the calls could have been faked.
