It is clear that at least five if not six training exercises were in operation in the days leading up to and on the morning of 9/11. This meant that NORAD radar screens showed as many as 22 hijacked airliners at the same time. NORAD had been briefed that this was part of the exercise drill and therefore normal reactive procedure was forestalled and delayed.

The large numbers of 'blips' on NORAD screens that displayed both real and 'drill' hijacked planes explain why confused press reports emerged hours after the attack stating that up to eight planes had been hijacked. Click here for that article.

The drill scenario also explains a comment made by air traffic control personnel which was featured in a July 2004 BBC television report. Click here for that video clip and article. The controller is told that a hijacked airliner is heading for New York and responds by saying, "is this real world or an exercise?"

Here are the names of the exercises taking place on 911.


What were the drills called and what was their nature?

1) OPERATION NORTHERN VIGILANCE: This was planned months in advance of 9/11 and ensured that on the morning of 9/11, jet fighters were removed from patrolling the US east coast and sent to Alaska and Canada, therefore reducing the amount of fighter planes available to protect the east coast.

2) BIOWARFARE EXERCISE TRIPOD II: Alex Jones first reported on this back in May when Rudolph Giuliani let the details of it slip in his testimony to the 9/11 Commission. FEMA arrived in New York on September 10th to set up a command post located at Pier 29 under the auspices of a 'biowarfare exercise scheduled for September 12. This explains why Tom Kenney of FEMA's National Urban Search and Rescue Team, told Dan Rather of CBS News that FEMA had arrived in New York on the night of September 10th. This was originally dismissed as a slip of the tongue. Giuliani was to use this post as a command post on 9/11 after he evacuated WTC Building 7. As we reported back in January, Giuliani knew when to leave WTC 7 because he got advanced warning that the Trade Towers were about to collapse. "We were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was gonna collapse," Rudolph Giuliani told Peter Jennings of ABC News. How did Giuliani know the towers were about to collapse when no steel building in history had previously collapsed from fire damage?

3) OPERATION VIGILANT GUARDIAN: This exercise simulated hijacked planes in the north eastern sector and started to coincide with 9/11. Lt. Col. Dawne Deskins, NORAD unit's airborne control and warning officer, was overseeing the exercise. At 8:40am she took a call from Boston Center which said it had a hijacked airliner. Her first words, as quoted by Newhouse News Service were, "It must be part of the exercise." This is another example of how the numerous drills on the morning of 9/11 deliberately distracted NORAD so that the real hijacked planes couldn't be intercepted in time.

4) OPERATION NORTHERN GUARDIAN: The details of this exercise are still scant but it is considered to be part of Vigilant Guardian, relating to simulating hijacked planes in the north eastern sector.

5) OPERATION VIGILANT WARRIOR: This was referenced in Richard Clarke's book 'Against All Enemies'. It is thought to have been the 'attack' component of the Vigilant Guardian exercise.

United States military and Department of Defense ongoing and scheduled operations and exercises for September 11, 2001
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from War games in progress on September 11, 2001)
Jump to: navigation, search
On September 11, 2001, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) was involved in an ongoing operation which involved deploying fighter aircraft to northwestern North America. The US Military and NORAD had also planned to conduct several military exercises and a drill was being held by the National Reconnaissance Office, a Department of Defense agency. The operations, exercises and drills were all cancelled following the September 11, 2001 attacks.

en.wikipedia.org...



Planned military exercises
The military exercises (war games) planned for September 11, 2001 included:

Global Guardian, an annual command-level exercise organized by United States Strategic Command in cooperation with Space Command and NORAD. Primary purpose is to test and validate nuclear command and control and execution procedures. Global Guardian is performed in conjunction with NORAD's Vigilant Guardian and Amalgam Warrior, as well as exercises sponsored by Air Combat Command (Crown Vigilance) and Space Command (Apollo Guardian).[3][4]
Vigilant Guardian, the semiannual NORAD exercise that had been running in conjunction with Global Guardian for several days and which postulated a bomber attack from the former Soviet Union. Vigilant Guardian is a Command Post Exercise (CPX), meaning it is conducted in offices and with computers, but without actual planes in the air. The exercise involves all NORAD command levels.[5] Out of a range of scenarios being run on September 11, 2001, one was a "traditional" simulated hijacking.[6] According to General Eberhart, after the first attack, "it took about 30 seconds" to make the adjustment to the real-world situation.[7] Because of an increased number of staff, the exercise would prove to be an enabler of rapid military response for NORAD and its NEADS component, as senior officials who were manning NORAD command centers throughout the U.S. were available to make rapid decisions.[8]
There is also one other, disputed account of a planned exercise:

Vigilant Warrior, in his book Against All Enemies, Richard Clarke claims there was a NORAD exercise ongoing called Vigilant Warrior.[9] The claim is based on a comment that Richard Myers made to Clarke via a video link on September 11, 2001. However, there is no other record of a NORAD exercise named Vigiliant Warrior. Myers was possibly referring to Vigilant Guardian (the aforementioned yearly NORAD exercise held in conjunction with Global Guardian) or Amalgam Warrior (a large-scale, live-fly, CINCNORAD sponsored exercice which is held twice annually).[10] Vigilant Warrior was also a 1994 operation by the US army in the Persian Gulf region, in response to Iraqi troop movements towards Kuwait.[11]

This story was odd.... Fema was prepared on 911 because they were preparing for an exercise on the 12th of September,2001.

Operation Tripod bioterrorism exercise
On September 12, 2001, there was due to take place the second part of an exercise known as Operation Tripod, set up to "test the plan to distribute antibiotics to the entire city population during a bioterrorism attack"[13] Richard Sheirer, director of the New York City mayor's Office of Emergency Management (OEM), had hired "over 1,000 Police Academy cadets and Fire Department trainees to play terrified civilians afflicted with various medical conditions, allergies, and panic attacks." Various individuals were invited to watch, including Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, the police and fire commissioners, and representatives of the FBI and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).[14] Pier 92 was set up as a model distribution station where the "victims" of the mock attack who needed to receive antibiotics would be treated.[15] The exercise was a follow-up to a previous training exercise in New York, called RED Ex, which took place on May 21, 2001.[16] According to the MTI Report Saving City Lifelines: Lessons Learned in the 9-11 Terrorist Attacks, "September 11 was going to be a busy day at the OEM. Staff members arrived early to prepare for Operation Tripod."[17]

When the September 11, 2001 attacks began, Operation Tripod was immediately canceled as attentions turned to the real ongoing emergency. Because Pier 92 had been set up ready for the exercise, OEM staff were able to move there and quickly convert it into a large emergency operations center when their original command center (in WTC Building 7) was evacuated and later destroyed. Thus, within 31 hours of the attacks, OEM has a functional facility able to manage the search and rescue effort, just four miles north-northwest of the WTC site.[18] The exercise was later rescheduled and took place on May 22, 2002.[19]

9/11 War Games No Coincidence

by Michael Kane -June 08


(special thanks to Barbara Honegger for her early work on this line of research)

?I have an on-the-record statement from someone in NORAD that on the day of 9/11 The Joint Chiefs of Staff (Richard B. Myers) and NORAD were conducting a joint, live-fly, hijack Field Training Exercise (FTX) which involved at least one (and almost certainly many more) aircraft under US control that was posing as a hijacked airliner?.
Mike Ruppert - June 5, 2004, editor of FTW www.fromthewilderness.com

On September 11, 2001, Richard B. Meyers, the acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has thus far claimed he was in a meeting with Senator Max Cleland, and was ?unaware? of the ongoing 9/11 attacks until after the Pentagon was struck.

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld claims that he was in the Pentagon giving a lecture to members of Congress about the need for America to ?be prepared for the unexpected? pertaining to future terrorist attacks. As the 9/11 plot unfolded, Secretary Donald Rumsfeld claims he was effectively out of the loop while inside the Pentagon until it was struck at 9:38 am. That comes from his testimony to the 9/11 Commission on March 25, 2004, while under oath.

On September 11, 2001, the Air Force was in its second day of annual wargame drills, titled VIGILANT GUARDIAN, designed to test national air response systems, which incidentally involved hijacking scenarios. In addition the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) which is staffed by military and CIA personnel, and is in charge of most American spy satellites, was running a drill for the scenario of an errant aircraft crashing into its headquarters. NRO headquarters also happens to be located just four miles from Washington?s Dulles airport ? where Flight 77 (the flight said to have hit the Pentagon) originated...

On the very morning of 9/11/01, five war games and terror drills were being conducted by several U.S. defense agencies, including one "live fly" exercise using REAL planes. Then-Acting Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force General Richard B. Myers, admitted to 4 of the war games in congressional testimony -- see transcript here or video here (6 minutes and 12 seconds into the video).

Norad had run drills for several years of planes being used as weapons against the World Trade Center and other U.S. high-profile buildings, and "numerous types of civilian and military aircraft were used as mock hijacked aircraft". In other words, drills using REAL AIRCRAFT simulating terrorist attacks crashing jets into buildings, including the twin towers, were run. See also official military website showing 2000 military drill, using miniatures, involving a plane crashing into the Pentagon.



In addition, a December 9, 2001 Toronto Star article reprinted here, stated that "Operation Northern Vigilance is called off. Any simulated information, what's known as an 'inject,' is purged from the screens". This indicates that there were false radar blips inserted onto air traffic controllers' screens as part of the war game exercises.






Moreover, there are indications that some of the major war games previously scheduled for October 2001 were MOVED UP to September 11th by persons unknown (first paragraph).



Please review this story at this page www.globalresearch.ca... there is sources and many links to inform you.


One of the imagined targets was the World Trade Center. In another exercise, jets performed a mock shootdown over the Atlantic Ocean of a jet supposedly laden with chemical poisons headed toward a target in the United States. In a third scenario, the target was the Pentagon — but that drill was not run after Defense officials said it was unrealistic, NORAD and Defense officials say.

NORAD, in a written statement, confirmed that such hijacking exercises occurred. It said the scenarios outlined were regional drills, not regularly scheduled continent-wide exercises.

"Numerous types of civilian and military aircraft were used as mock hijacked aircraft," the statement said. "These exercises tested track detection and identification; scramble and interception; hijack procedures; internal and external agency coordination and operational security and communications security procedures."

Its amazing how these government supporters and debunkers dont want to touch this thread.......

War games were cover for the 911 attacks.

All the of the 911 planes were involved in the 911 exercises. Find out who was controlling them.... obviously remote control.

Here's your debunking....

Check your sources. With the exception of USAToday, all of your other sources, PrisonPlanet and 911review.org have what credibility, exactly?
Your Wiki links would be great too, if only I couldn't access Wiki and write an article reagrding the Flying Spaghetti Monster's involvement in the recent Iowa descruction...

I realize that there were drills on and around 9/11 that eerily matched the events of 9/11, but some of these are going too far.

None of you will ever be happy. People try to debunk, you get irritated with them. No one tries to debunk, you're irritated that no one's trying to debunk.

Face it, this is more about proving your point that anything else isn't it? Isn't it more about you being right?

Look at 7/7 London Bombings ........ there were excercise drills going on for bombing at the exact time and locations of the real bombings ... duh... of course they were both inside jobs how the f&$% would terrorist coincidentaly schedule their bombings to coincide.

Anyone who can't see the obvious must certainly have the attention span of a retarded mosquito.

What's the point? You have spent the whole thread posting link after link, quote after quote from sources that are laughable at best and you have proven to be just another conspiracy guy who either makes up an excuse or simply ignores anything that doesn't back up your theories.

The problem with proof . . .

I immediately asked myself where our air defense was when I sat and watched the towers and Pentagon burn while some fourth plane was flying around without a transponder for so long. But . . . nothing. As if the guards had left the palace. . .

There are several reliable sources documenting the fact that fighter jets were in training on missions involving interception of planes used as missiles on large buildings in major cities during the morning of 9/11. There is a recorded request from one of the control tower operators to NORAD reporting one of the high-jacks in which the NORAD representative asked "Is this real world or exercise?" See www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqUsB_RcL3s. Even NORAD admits these war games were going on at this point.

My expertise in my own work is evidence. "Proving" or "disproving" is a matter of evidentiary quality. But the person offering the proof and the person trying to poke holes in that proof both have to have the same amount of quality evidence (i.e., read the 911 Commission report, look at the cited sources and the live news coverage of first hand witnesses - we call these "primary sources") and even then all credible evidence is submitted to a peer-review group, judge, arbitrator or a jury. It is a logical fallacy to try to prove a negative simply by saying something isn't true. Any debunker would have to produce their own evidence - show that our fighters were actually engaged in another exercise or were in for service, or whatever.

So far, on this thread and elsewhere, a neutral party would have to conclude that NORAD was so otherwise occupied by fighting imaginary high-jacked planes heading toward imaginary major cities that the pilots could not distinguish between "real world" and "exercise" when they were contacted for intercept.

Now, is it possible that this was coincidental? That is one miracle of a coincidence.

Some of the wargames


CIA / National Reconnaissance Office "plane into building" exercise
Associated Press, August 21, 2002 simulation of a plane crash into the NRO headquarters (near Dulles Airport, Virginia) - this was not a "terrorism" exercise but it did result in the evacuation of most NRO employees just as the "real" 9/11 was taking place, making it more difficult for the nation's spy satellites to be used to track the hijacked planes

Vigilant Guardian
Aviation Week & Space Technology, June 3, 2002, Newhouse News, others (these articles are reproduced below) The publicly available mass media articles about these exercises state that they were similar enough to the actual events that top NORAD personnel were confused, not sure if 9/11 was "part of the drill" or a real world event.
Vigilant Warrior referenced by Richard Clark, "Against All Enemies" (March 2004)

Northern Vigilance
Toronto Star, December 9, 2001 "Operation Northern Vigilance, planned months in advance, involves deploying fighter jets to locations in Alaska and northern Canada." This ensured that there would be fewer fighter planes available to protect the East Coast on 9/11. Simulated information was fed into radar screens - is this what confused the air defenses that morning?

Northern Guardian
Toronto Star, December 9, 2001 only mention was in the early edition of this article, no details publicly available (probably related to Northern Vigilance)

Tripod II
US Department of Justice and City of New York
Rudolph Giuliani's testimony to the 9/11 Commission, May 2004 biowar exercise in New York City scheduled for September 12, 2001

Would anyone like to add?

Is this one of those threads that debunks the debunkers?

I think so.

Duh , mabey the terrorists knew about top secret exercises taking place on 911 and used that as cover for the attack.

The current US administration has been caught out on so many lies over 9/11 nothing they say can be believed anymore.

The problem with a lie is it doesn't stand up to close scrutiny, no matter how well it is made.

Light will always confound the works of darkness.

Your beating a dead horse when it comes to debunkers. They believe the government is looking out for there best interest now thats laughable.

I wish there was a knob on the TV for intelligence theres a knob for brightness but it sure doesnt work.....

Keep up the fight.

What about the TRIPOD II stuff from Giuliani's own testimony to the Kean Commission, and the reference from ABC news (and I also have more detailed excerpts from NY Times transcripts as far as that reference goes) about how command stations were set up in and around WTC7, and Giuliani's testimony to it being set up on Sept. 10th for the TRIPOD II bio wargame? You really don't think a criminal investigation would find that odd? Those command posts are where they helped direct the FDNY and NYPD from the next day.

There is another thread called the 911 wargame timeline here at ats.

That thread shows that certain agencies not only planned but practiced almost every thing that happened on 911.

Attacking sources and or people for exposing the truth only admits that you cant argue the facts.
