There's a researcher who has a recollection of the jet fighters being called off the chase on 9/11. I've read many accounts of this as well, but
never seen it quoted by the military intelligence personnel as this guy has.
Can anyone help him?
A request from Ed Griffin:
If you recorded TV news on 9-11, I need your help. On 9-11, or shortly therafter, an Air Force general was asked on TV why he did not respond in time
to divert or destroy the hijacked planes before they hit their targets. His reply was that his pilots were prepared for takeoff, sitting in their
planes on the runway, waiting for orders from above. This is astounding because, although I did not realize it at the time, standard procedure up
until 9-11 was to scramble jet fighters into the air immediately upon first knowledge that any craft is significantly off course. It normally takes
less than three minutes to accomplish that. On 9-11, it took one hour and five minutes. Launching interceptors should be automatic and no presidential
order is required for that – except on 9-11. It appears that, on that day, someone very high up had altered standard procedures. Why they would do so
is the subject of my presentation entitled The Grand Deception, available as a download elsewhere on this site. My recollection of the general’s
statement is strong, but we need to have the video to verify it. I hope that someone out there captured it on videotape. If so, I would be grateful to
obtain a copy. Thanks for your help. Ed Griffin.
