Phones started ringing early on the morning of February 16th. Representative Cynthia McKinney of Georgia, newly returned to Capitol Hill for her sixth term as a member of Congress was, within minutes, going into a House hearing on the Defense Appropriations bill and she was going in loaded for bear… or goose, depending on one's viewpoint. She asked me how quickly I could email select documents establishing that as many as five wargames were simultaneously underway on the morning of Sept. 11th, 2001.

I think you'll find there is great cause for concern and investigation when one of the wargames, Operation Vigilant Warrior was a LIVE-FLY exercise run by the Chief Joints of Staff that simulated a hijack scenario within the continental United States.
Hmm, what convenient camouflage!
To dismiss Cynthia McKinney as a nut just because she's asking pertinent questions is ridiculous.

The other guy is a Naval Pilot who was stationed in Norfolk on 9/11 and when they heard an attack was underway they instinctively made ready to get their jets off the ground and were told to stand down immediately.
I make no claims as to whether they are full of mularky or not, but I find it all a little odd. that's all.

If they avoided answering and looked uncomfortable it isn't because
of any conspiracy ... it's simply because Cynthia McKinney is a certifiable
wing nut and EVERYTHING she says and does is beyond strange.
Kinda' like that dingbat Helen Thomas at the White House press
conferences. When either woman speaks, groans are heard and
eyes roll ... by the right AND the left.
The New York Times’ Lynette Clemetson revealed her comments went even further over the edge: “Ms. McKinney suggest[ed] that President Bush might have known about the September 11 attacks but did nothing so his supporters could make money in a war.”
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush's uncle made more than $450,000 last month by selling stock in a defense contractor whose profits are growing because of the Iraq war, records show.
Bush-Linked Company Handled Security for the WTC, Dulles and United
1. by Margie Burns
George W. Bush's brother was on the board of directors of a company providing electronic security for the World Trade Center, Dulles International Airport and United Airlines, according to public records. The company was backed by an investment firm, the Kuwait-American Corp., also linked for years to the Bush family.
The security company, formerly named Securacom and now named Stratesec, is in Sterling, Va.. Its CEO, Barry McDaniel, said the company had a ``completion contract" to handle some of the security at the World Trade Center ``up to the day the buildings fell down."
How will President George W. Bush personally make millions (if not billions) from the War on Terror and Iraq? The old fashioned way. He'll inherit it.

I don't dismiss her because she's asking 'pertenant questions'.
I dismiss her because of her history of being a nut. She's a
complete loon. If Sen. McCain or someone else with some
credibility stepped forward asking questions, I'd listen. But
from her ...
My brother is in the air force and was stationed in N. Dakota
at the time. They were in the middle of a war game when it
was cancelled because war 'Real World' happened. They
had to stand down their exercise and geer up real world.
September is a popular month for war games. So is May.
I have no doubt that the Fog of War happened in some
places. This situation unexpected. Heck ... the Emergency
Broadcast System SHOULD have gone off for New York,
DC and probably Connecticut and New Jersey as well.
It didn't go off. For decades this was used in practice,
but when the time came, everyone was in shock and
no one pushed the button to activate the EBS.
When the real thing happened .... all the training failed.
Everyone was in shock. Heck ... I was in the Army for
5 years and I watched what was happening on TV and
I was in shock. I didn't believe it. It was unworldly.
It took a good three months until it sunk in before I
actually believed it was real and that the world had
changed so drastically.
On September 11, at least five different "war games" were being conducted by the military and intelligence agencies. These exercises included simulations of 9/11 type events, a plane into building scenario near Dulles Airport in Virginia, and deployment of fighters to northern Canada and Alaska (which reduced the number of fighters that were available to protect the US?). It seems that these exercises were the means used to paralyze the air defenses, thereby ensuring the success of the "attacks."
1. The British Navy was conducting exercises in the Indian ocean near the Middle East. A biowar exercise was also about to start in New York City. Who has the power to coordinate all of these exercises? Osama bin Laden? Saddam Hussein? Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah? Dick Cheney and the White House National Security Council?
the war games do not answer the question of how the air defenses were suppressed for another half hour after the second tower was hit (at which time everyone knew that an attack was in progress). The Air Force had another half hour after the second tower to scramble interceptors to defend the Capitol (the plane that is alleged to have hit the Pentagon made its 180 degree turn over Ohio to head back toward D.C. about the time that the second tower was struck).
