Im curious about your response to the ACTUAL THREAD,
What happened to the missing footage from the video camera's at the pentagon?
If they were removed and hidden, why?
And do you honestly believe the Pentagon ,the US MILITARY HEART that is RIGHT NEXT to the building the PRESIDENT works in, does not have air
What, back in the coldwar, we never proactivley prepared for a russian attack on the United States capital?
Your a public peasant, and by your understanding of 911, not a very smart one.
So I wouldnt expect you to comprehend the notion that the US government has air defenses that maybe you dont know about!
As has been addressed on ATS many, many times. The FBI visited the local businesses to confiscate their security tapes in the hopes that they MIGHT
show something of the airliner. The Pentagon cameras, those that were still in use on 9/11, their video (or photos, because no one has shown that
they were continuous video as opposed to the type of camera at the parking gate) was also added to the FBI case file in case it ever needs to be used
in a court case. Nothing was "hidden"
As for the Pentagon defenses, on 9/11/01 there were no missile emplacements or any other systems to defend against an air attack on site too great a
risk to the civilian aircraft flying in and out of Reagan National. And do not bring up IFF systems. Military IFF (which is used by things like
missile defense systems), is different from civilian IFF. The Pentagon, also is not right next to the White House, there is quite a bit of distance
between the two. The secret service does have some other weaponry they can use against a hostile aircraft, but in the end even what they have would
be using a spitball against tornado.
Then you mention the Cold War and the big, bad Soviets.....In case you missed it, the Cold War was declared over in the early 90s. Back then, we had
dozens of aircraft "hotcocked" for battle up and down the coasts. That ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union. On 9/11/01, the extent of our
alert defenses were 14 fighter aircraft for the entire 48 states, and of those 14, not all of them carried air to air missiles.
Then the last, your pitiful attempt to insult me. Ive been called far worse by far better people. You can chose to believe what you want, your
choice to remain ignorant really doesnt affect me one way or the other.
