We did not keep armed planes on alert during that time, it went away with the end of the cold war to save money.
Fighter jets are regularly scrambled by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) in response to suspicious or unidentified aircraft flying in US airspace in the years preceding 9/11. [GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE, 5/3/1994, PP. 4; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 8/14/2002] For this task, NORAD keeps a pair of fighters on “alert” at a number of sites around the US. These fighters are armed, fueled, and ready to take off within minutes of receiving a scramble order (see Before September 11, 2001).

On the morning of 9/11/01, there were three rooftop cameras ( per side). One on each corner and one in the middle.
Then they should have got the plane on Video.
Why won't they show it an put the controversy to rest?

That point-of-view of the Pentagon camera wasn't even set up to view license plates.
I believe that a commercial airplane flew into the Pentagon, but like the OP, I think there should have been more views, more camera angles.
