I don't know what my thoughts are. The official record states it was the first to confirm the impact crater, so they put it there. Odd, huh?

NORAD was not under a stand down order, the president of the United States had ordered any plane threatening a major city be shot down. This is confirmed by the vice president on meet the press.
At 10:39, the Vice President updated the Secretary on the air threat conference:
Vice President: There's been at least three instances here where we've had reports of aircraft approaching Washington-a couple were confirmed hijack. And, pursuant to the President's instructions I gave authorization for them to be taken out. Hello?
SecDef: Yes, I understand. Who did you give that direction to?
Vice President: It was passed from here through the [operations] center at the White House, from the [shelter].
SecDef: OK, let me ask the question here. Has that directive been transmitted to the aircraft?
Vice President: Yes, it has.
SecDef: So we've got a couple of aircraft up there that have those instructions at this present time?
Vice President: That is correct. And it's my understanding they've already taken a couple of aircraft out.
SecDef: We can't confirm that. We're told that one aircraft is down but we do not have a pilot report that did it.
“If the enemy is using radio, we can affect that. But,” Captain LeGrand conceded, “the only way to affect a land line is to drop a bomb on it.” That’s exactly what happened in Bosnia and Kosovo — while the jammers made mincemeat of Serb defensive radio signals, the bomb-droppers cut the land lines.

If this was EMP from a nuclear blast I'd agree with you snafu, but this was directed jamming which is a whole different issue. The bizjet and the Cessna would have caught the fringes of the jamming signal not the whole jolt. I don't think that they would have had any permenant damage.

Greetings Fellow Believers,
Remember the thing the "leader" of this said that was quoted over and over: "saddle up"? Could be wrong about it specifically--but I recall it had a very John Wayne sort of flavor.
the wife of the leader of the attempted takeover of the cockpit: blue eyed, blonde, and beautiful.
Too convenient. Sure, many wifes are beautiful! But this had the flavor of Hitler's speeches. He also highlighted Aryan women too.
Am I reaching on this one?
