Whether 9/11 was manufactured by the government or merely allowed to happen with government knowledge and inaction, it was perfect for the US economy, Halliburton, Bush Senior, Boy George and all of their cronies

According to standard operating procedures, the FAA is supposed to contact the NMCC whenever it suspects that an airplane has been hijacked. There are three major signs that a plane may have been hijacked: (1) if it deviates seriously from it's flight plan; (2) if radio contact is lost; or (3) if it's transponder goes off.'
The NMCC then tells NORAD to have jets sent up - "scrambled" - from the nearest Air Force base with jets on alert.
Interceptions evidently occur, in fact, about 100 times a year. The FAA reported, for example, that there were 67 interceptions between September 2000 and June 2001.
...a 1998 document warning pilots that any airplanes persisting in unusual behavior "will likely find two [jet fighters] on their tail within 10 or so minutes".
