On May 22 and 23, 2003, the 9/11 Independent Commission held its second set of public hearings, focusing on the issue of air defense. It's not
surprising if you haven't heard about this, because the hearings were poorly covered by the media, with major papers such as the New York Times and
Los Angeles Times failing to write any articles on them.
That's unfortunate, because the hearings were important, and the issue of air defense is critically so. Could at least some of the 9/11 attacks have
been stopped if the US air defense system had reacted faster? We need to know the answers and identify possible failures if we are to prevent future
attacks from succeeding.
