I wish I could remember where I read it, but someone did a story along this vein recently specifically about memories of 9/11 and showed how people's memories aren't completely accurate and how people remembered things as happening that day that they couldn't have actually known until later. It might have been diaried at Orange but I don't know how I'd find it.
But you're exactly right. It seems unbelievable that someone actually would have been thinking that on that day unless they were already part of the Rush brainwashed group. So either he isn't what he says he was or his memory is faulty and he's let later Rush infitrate his memory.
A study conducted weeks after the terrorist attacks found large numbers of participants had rearranged the order of the day's events in their minds and had forgotten some of its key moments, said the study's author, Kathy Pezdek, a psychology professor at Claremont Graduate University.
Although the study did find that the memories of people watching TV in New York were more accurate than the memories of people watching on TV in Hawaii. So proximity to the traumatic event did make a difference.
