...With the exception of immediate responses as authorized by reference d*, the NMCC will forward all requests for such assistance to the Secretary of Defense for approval....
The Secretary of Defense retains approval authority for support to civil authorities involving: use of Commander in Chief (CINC)-assigned forces (personnel, units, and equipment) when required under paragraph 4.5., below; DoD support to civil disturbances; DoD responses to acts of terrorism; and DoD support that will result in a planned event with the potential for confrontation with specifically identified individuals and/or groups or will result in the use of lethal force. Nothing in this Directive prevents a commander from exercising his or her immediate emergency response authority as outlined in DoD Directive 3025.1
Immediate Response. Any form of immediate action taken by a DoD Component or military commander, under the authorities outlined in DoD Directive 3025.12 (reference (e)), to assist civil authorities or the public to save lives, prevent human suffering, or mitigate great property damage under imminently serious conditions occurring where there has not been any declaration of major disaster or emergency by the President or attack.
4.5.1. Imminently serious conditions resulting from any civil emergency or attack may require immediate action by military commanders, or by responsible officials of other DoD Agencies, to save lives, prevent human suffering, or mitigate great property damage. When such conditions exist and time does not permit prior approval from higher headquarters, local military commanders and responsible officials of other DoD Components are authorized by this Directive, subject to any supplemental direction that may be provided by their DoD Component, to take necessary action to respond to requests of civil authorities. All such necessary action is referred to in this Directive as "Immediate Response."....

But since when did truthers require the truth? They have been relying on hunches and misinformation the entire time.
How long did that thermite crap go on?

You both are seriously obsessed with "truther" bashing.. It's very disgusting actually.
That's not damage from an impact. It's not from shearing or bending forces. It's from planted cutting charges and the evidences is dripping from it.

I find it mind numbing that someone like you and the others can actually be hostile toward people looking for answers about this event. We're not the enemy. We didn't fly those planes into those buildings. We have doubts, but those doubts hurt no one and they don't kill. What motivation could we possibly have other than a better understanding of what happened and why the fail safes failed?
You apparently have some other stake in this. It's obvious from your heated posts and your attacks on those who question what should be questioned by not only every American, but every human on this planet. Maybe you're not human? Or maybe it can only mean one of two things, you either know the real truth and are complicit in it in some way, are part of the coverup and need to perpetuate the official tag line or you really know jack #. Which is it?
