Now i know there is a similar thread here but this has a slightly different twist....

onlinejournal.com...


The last paragraph talks about Brig. Gen wherley who ordered the planes up and shot down flight 93

"The Commander of the 113th Air National Guard fighter unit at Andrews on 9/11 was then-Brigadier General David Wherley. Wherley and his wife Ann were killed in the crash of a Red Line Metro train on June 22 of this year. It was Wherley who ordered the F-16s off of exercise status and into attack mode on the morning of 9/11. Wherley is reported to have been aware of who in the chain of command ordered the F-16s into exercise status and disarmed."

They took two fighters on permanent flight duty and had them disarmed, then brought them to Andrews AFB and had them re-fiited with missles and then sent them over pennsylvania to shoot down flight 93.

He had knowledge of who had ordered this and was killed in a train accident...A little too convenient don't you think. If they could have got this guy to testify who knows what he might have told them!!!

Andrews was taken off the Alert mission well before 9/11. They had no armed fighters there from the mid to late 90s. The DoD had to cut missions under Clinton and the Alert mission was gutted. As to having jets dearmed, flown down, and rearmed, by the time all that was done the entire event would have been over. It doesn`t take just a few minutes to dearm and arm a fighter. Several AF people involved stated just after 9/11 that to fully arm the fighters would have taken between 90 minutes to two hours from a cold start.

That's what i thought as well. You can't just turn one these things off and then re-start it like that, and they can't put missles on a plane like changing tires at a NASCAR pit stop......

That's a good point. You also can't disarm fighters which aren't armed in the first place and you can't take fighter off of alert when they aren't on alert status to begin with. Exercise status is called training and no one above Squadron level needed to authorize that.

BTW, you forgot to provide evidence that anyone shot down anything on 9/11. Don't bother, you've wasted enough bandwidth starting a pointless thread that's about as valuable as used toilet paper.
