Two Boeng 747's crashed in the Twin Towers.
Why couldn't the Air Force send some figter jets up there.
This is the reason why, as Hordon stated, that we don’t have complete access to flight data recorders and FAA tapes, which in the case of a conversation between six New York Air Route Traffic Control Center controllers was ordered to be shredded, because if studies of that evidence were undertaken it would become very clear as to who was really behind the attack.
“What they did is they cherry picked transmissions, communications and statements made all on these four flights that were able to paint and write a story that the public would look at and so ooh wow, this really happened – but it wasn’t factual, it was a story and it tell not tell anything other than what the high perps wanted the public to hear – they cherry picked this information,” said Hordon.
It is also dedicated to Scott Shuger, who was the only mainstream or alternative media writer, beside myself, who had the courage to write about the elementary mathematical facts (that the two United States Air Force (USAF) F-15 fighters ordered to intercept United Airlines Flight 175 and the two or three USAF F-16 fighters ordered to intercept American Airlines Flight 77 were flying at only 25.8% and 27.4% of their top speed) of the NORAD Press Release of September 18, 2001. Scott’s article is called IGNORAD The Military Screw-up Nobody Talks About. Scott Shuger astonishingly died in a scuba diving accident on June 15, 2002.

Uuuuh Duff and Nasty, the two intercepted when Flight 11 turned off its transponder... eg. Straight away, Were travelling at Subsonic speeds.
8:53 a.m. - Unaware that their intended target has already crashed into the World Trade Center, the F-15s from Otis Air Force Base are sent to military-controlled airspace off Long Island and ordered to remain in a holding pattern until between 9:09 and 9:13 a.m. [National Geographic]
At first, the planes were directed toward New York at top speed, and probably reached 600 m.p.h. within two minutes, General Haugen said [obviously they were on a go-slow]. Then, flying in formation, they were vectored toward the west and given a new flight target: Reagan National Airport. [New York Times]
"If a stand down order were given it probably would have to come from at least as high as the vice president".....
"There was a young man who came in and said to the vice president "The plane is 50 miles out" [from Washington], "The plane is 30 miles out", and when it got down to "The plane is 10 miles out" the young man also said to the vice president "Do the orders still stand?", and the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said "Of course the orders still stand, have you heard anything to the contrary?"

The fact that they would tie in the NORAD training program with the actual work going on that day is just crazy. I wonder if that is normal procedure for their training programs in the past. It does not make any sense to do that, surely someone realized that tying in training and actual work going on at the same time would be confusing to anyone and that if an actual problem occurred there would be doubt as to what was real and what wasn't.
Does anyone here know if putting the training and the actual work together is common procedure for NORAD? Surely the gov. could afford to set up a training program separately. None of it makes any sense and the fact that the terrorists just happened to pick this day either means they were extremely lucky or had inside info. .
