In 2006 the Norwegian magazine Økonomisk Rapport (Economic Report) revealed that several NASAMS were used to guard air space over Washington, D.C. during the 2005 presidential inauguration. According to the report, the same NASAMS units has since been used to protect air space around the White House. The magazine received access to the deal which mentioned specifically that the equipment be used for protection of the President in Washington. Director Tore Sannes of Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace refused to comment, other than acknowledging that they had made a weapon systems deal with U.S. military contractor Raytheon and the United States Air Force.
Although Økonomisk Rapport claimed to have revealed this in March 2006, the official webpages of the Royal Norwegian Air Force gave very clear hints about the event one year earlier—giving specific mention to the fact that the NASAMS had been used to protect Washington, D.C. during the recent presidential inauguration. The official site popped the lid on what had become a not so well kept secret.

One possible reason is that the transponder on the plane was turned off...the air traffic control in that region had no idea where the plane even was...
For the first time since the Cuban missile crisis almost 40 years ago, armed missile launchers will be protecting the nation's capital by day's end Tuesday -- a precaution that comes amid a heightened alert status on the eve of the one-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
When I was 10 or 11, to the best of my memory, which means 1957 or 58, I recall going outside and sitting down on a silver metal box. My father told me to get off of it. When I asked why he said it was a surface to air missile. (I could be off by 2-3 years on this recollection, but it was certainly before 1961).
In 1962, 82 Army National Guard units manned Nike Ajax air defense batteries in 15 states and the District of Columbia, according to a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command
Not only that, in my trip during 96 (think it was 96), as i was touring the "tour section" of the white house, i was just BS'n with the SS agents there keeping an eye on everyone. They were just telling me stuff about DC etc, and somehow we got on the subject of how do they defend their buildings. And the SS agents CLEARLY told me they have DOZENS of SAM launchers ALL over the White House, Capitol Building, and Pentagon (among other facilitys)

Radar is capable of tracking aircraft without transponders otherwise how did we track aircraft in WW2 ( and the modern radar is significantly better than what we had then)

from 1997 till june of 2000 there were standing orders to take out any hijacked plane with military aircraft.
found the info on a podcast on pilotsfor911truth.org.

It is difficult to understand why SS agents were talking about SAM placement to a tourist.
Actually the last time I was in DC, I got held-up by an agent while a motorcade was disembarking for somewhere. The agent was very polite, talking with several of us, and answering our questions about what was going on.

Please explain to me why its rediculous to consider if AA defense existed at the central point of our nations infrastructure?
i personally would consider the idea "theres no defense" a wild conspiracy theory and the idea "there is defense" a rational expectation
think of all the wasted tax $$$ , if we actually had no last ditch AA defense in DC....i just cant believe it lol
