I totally agree with you east coast kid. It's totally a lost cause. We people as a whole SHOULD KNOW what happend that day and what the u.s
government could of done to prevent it. You know damn well those stray airliners were picked up by NORAD and what did they do about it? Not a damn
thing. The government should come forward and spill some answers to the american public. I've always known there was much,much more behind those
You gotta be shi*ting me. Aren't you the guy who is so proud that he is going into the AF? Aren't they the main component of NORAD? Are you
saying that you do not believe that your AF did anything when those airliners were flying around?
I think that the AF is making a big mistake taking someone in who is basically trash talking them before even spending a single day amonst them.
, I suggest you go read the Bill of Rights. According to the first Ammendment, until Jeffrey is sworn in, he has every right to voice
his opinion. That 'you can only say what I
agree with' mentality belongs back in Nazi Germany.
If you've read many of my previous statements regarding Clinton, I have never had anything favorable to say about him and what he was involved in.
He's thick as theives with the Bush syndicate. And you take that to the bank. (See: Terry Reid's "Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA to
understand how much so.)
Clinton's turning a blinde eye to Osama allowed the plot to go ahead. And you're right. Clinton did have plenty of opportunity to capture him.
The thing most disgusting thing to me about Clinton is that he is the ultimate political whore. There's nothing he wouldn't do for power and
privelege. And that whole Monica Lewinski thing was the least of his impeachable offenses. He lied under oath and that was the only thing they could
Having said that, though, it doesn't absolve Bush in least. His cronies are up to their eyeballs in what went down on 9-11. Whether Bush himself knew
what was going on is debateable. Dick Cheney damn sure did, though.
As for Cool Hand's comments regarding NORAD: I'll help you out.
On October 26, 1999, the famous golfer Payne Stewart boarded a private Learjet in Florida and left for Texas. Shortly after takeoff, Stewart's jet
veered sharply off course and began heading northwest. All contact with air controllers was lost. Within 15 minutes of having gone off course, US
fighter jets had already intercepted the jet. Everyone on board was likely dead due to depressurization. These fighter jets were dispatched by NORAD,
the branch of the US air force whose job it is to monitor and defend US airspace 24 hours a day. NORAD maintains a huge array of land based radar
systems and has fighter jets on alert 24 hours a day so that they can respond to a crisis. The jets escorted the doomed airplane until another group
of Air National Guard jets took over the escort mission. Finally, Stewart's jet ran out of fuel a crashed in South Dakota. The quick reaction time
and military precision with which NORAD intercepted and escorted Stewart's jet was impressive, and exactly what one would have expected from the
greatest military power in world history. (86)
THIS IS A BIG, BIG, LIE, plain and simple.
For example: remember two years ago, when golf pro Payne Stewart's small
PRIVATE Lear jet went off-course and out of communication just after
takeoff in Florida?
Within MINUTES, on an immediate alert from the FAA, U.S. Air Force and
Air Guard jets were scrambled to intercept Stewart's jet and see what
the heck was up (not that it helped much in that case...): "Several Air
Force and Air National Guard fighter jets, plus an AWACS radar control
plane, helped the Federal Aviation Administration track the runaway
Learjet and estimate when it would run out of fuel." --CNN, 10.26.99
This is an excellent archive on 9-11, btw:
The Prevention of Interceptions of the Commandeered Planes
It is standard operating procedure (SOP) to scramble jet fighters whenever a jetliner goes off course or radio contact with it is lost. Between
September 2000 and June 2001, fighters were scrambled 67 times. 1
These are just a few of many articles on this.
