    I think snopes is good for things like "is that 2 headed cat pic real"

    Was watching some things tonight and found some things that seemed to be real, (Mainstream media) yet were called false by snopes.

    Who does the checking for Snopes and do they update on things that were later told differently, (via FOIA or otherwise)?

    Here's one on 911
    Did a bunch of Saudis and Bin Laudens fly out of the US on 9/12 and 9/13, while all other US flights were grounded?
    Snopes says no way:

    But I found this that shows .gov admitting it did happen?
    http://www.sptimes.com/2004/06/09/Tampabay/TIA_now_verifies_flig.shtml
    and this from CBS:
    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2001/09/30/archive/main313048.shtml
    another... I found hundreds and all are credible...

    So why does snopes say False?
