When the tragic Amtrak crash happened, initially, the media and the FBI reported that foul play or terrorism was ruled out. When this misinformation came out on the 13th of this month, Shoebat.com reported on the same day, that such reports are not likely accurate, and that foul play or terrorism cannot be ruled out:
Just before Tuesday’s deadly Amtrak derailment, at about 9:25 p.m, Tuesday, SEPTA’s northbound Train 769, en route to Trenton on tracks on the Northeast Corridor beside the Amtrak rails, was struck by “an unknown projectile” that broke the engineer’s window, SEPTA spokeswoman Jerri Williams said.
Strange that about three minutes later and four miles away, near Frankford Junction, Amtrak’s northbound Train 188 derailed on the Northeast Corridor tracks, killing at least six and injuring scores.
Two trains, separate incidents within three minutes from each other and both incidents caused damage on the engineer’s window (one confirmed due to a projectile) which now some photos surfaced of the Amtrak crash also showing signs of engineer’s window shatter. Whether this is another projectile or was caused by the crash is unknown, but what is known is that both incidents were either coordinated around the same time with damage to the engineer’s window. Were these simply due to accidents? One is not. But this new revelation begins to lessen the possibility that chance was involved and that foul play becomes a possibility.
Shoebat.com stated this 5 days before the news came out confirming our suspicion. But this was not only of two incidents, but three confirmed “projectile story”. It then becomes probable that what we are dealing with is a coordinated attack:
The FBI is looking into whether there is any link between three different trains that were all apparently hit by objects just a few miles apart, within a few minutes, the night of the deadly Amtrak derailment.
Prior to these reports, Shoebat.com even provided photos of the Amtrak train showing that a projectile also have hit the derailed Amtrak train:
The SEPTA incident which is a confirmed projectile also shows a similar concentric window shatter, a confirmed “projectile”:
The third train was “another Amtrak train, a southbound Acela train that was apparently hit in a passenger window” as ABC reported. The SEPTA “train personnel believed someone had shot at them” which “Philadelphia transit police dispatchers can be heard on scanner audio from Tuesday night, warning that a commuter train may have been shot at.”
Such concentrated shatter holes are not easily formed by flying debris. Train driver windows are 223 Type 1 standard windows which have “minimum requirements for glazing materials in order to protect railroad employees and railroad passengers from injury as a result of objects striking the windows of locomotives”.
debris are unlikely to have caused such damage. From the Amtrak driver photo one can see what seems like a possible bullet size hole which may rule out that such “projectile” was a rock.
As far as the crash, indeed it is likely to have been caused by speeding. But such a scenario as a projectile hitting the engineer’s window could easily distract the engineer at the worst time while the conductor notices the curve when it was too late and applies the brakes sending the train off the tracks. The other scenario was that the engineer fell forward against the throttle, and then reacted too late.
