Here's a new analysis of how 9-11 could have gone down. It's somewhat lengthy, but worth the read. I'm curious to know what our resident experts
think of it...

It is possible to produce the appearance of a terrorist attack on the United States by means that do not employ terrorists, as such, but by the simple
substitution of one aircraft for another, particularly when the transponders of the aircraft involved are turned off. The only people who need to be
deceived by such an operation are the radar operators at air traffic control (ATC) centers.
The scenario explored here, called Operation Pearl (after Pearl Harbor), has been described in sufficient operational detail that sound judgments can
be made about a) feasibility and b) consistency with evidence on the ground. At the time of this writing it is probably the best available description
of what probably took place on September 11, 2001.
