Still Wondering Where NORAD Was On 9/11

The Day – New London, CT -- May 20, 2005

We had another off-course plane in Washington, D.C., on May 11. Two United States Air Force jets were in the air within minutes and escorted the plane down. That is exactly the way the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) was set up to protect America from malicious or terrorist planes.

On Sept. 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 11 left Logan International Airport and went off course at 8:15 a.m. and failed to follow instructions at 8:20 a.m.

At 8:45 a.m., it crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center. That's 25 minutes. American Airlines Flight 77 left Dulles Airport, Washington, just 10 minutes from Andrews Air Force Base, at 8:10 a.m. It disappeared from radar at 8:56 a.m. when the hijackers turned off the transponder. It was out of touch and off course for 46 minutes, flying to the Ohio border and back before crashing into the Pentagon at 9:40 a.m.

At 8:56 a.m., when Flight 77 went off radar, flight 11 had already crashed into the north tower of the WTC. At 9:06 a.m., United Airlines Flight 175 was the third plane to crash. It hit the south tower of the WTC.
Sequentially, this is 80 minutes of lost and off-course plane traffic.

As a result, more than 3,000 people were killed and a motive for war was announced. On Sept. 11, 2001, not one NORAD jet was dispatched until it was too late. This was the work of a few senior officials and was never investigated. This timeline and much more detailed information can be found at www.public-action.com/911/norad (http://www.public-action.com/911/norad) send.html.

I urge Americans to ask their elected officials where NORAD was on September 11, 2001, and also demand an independent investigation into the whereabouts of NORAD that day.

You know what I find interesting about all of this is not once, but three times in the same day.. If they did this, why not 5 or 6 planes, and have them handle two of them by protocol. Then at least the odds wouldn't have been so glaringly against them. I love it too that out of all of this, no one lost their job... Where were the patsies? Ya know, the guys that you set up to take the fall in these situations. How could they be soooo on the money with the plot, right up to the follow through? I mean, this musta been a logistical nightmare to set up, and it's like they got tired and gave up like 73% of the way through.

The other thing is... Payne Stewart's flight went off course, and had 6 planes on it by the end of its' ordeal. How many planes were sent for each "hijacked" plane?

Well Jon, what you don't understand is there was cataclismic failure on the part of the govt that handles that stuff. You see, they were all off playing Bingo for a twenty lb. turkey at the American Legion, or some such that day. Cheney saw to that. Oh no wait, I remember, weren't they out performing mock exercises that simulated exactly what in reality WAS really happening, and they all got confused? Even though they hadn't considered the possibility that terrorrists would use planes as weapons, isn't that EXACTLY the nature of the exercise they were performing that day?

I’m pretty darn sure that the transponders being turned off would not blind the existing (on 9/11) radar systems from detecting and pinpointing the location, and quite likely with only a few more minutes of work, identifying, an airplane to within a couple hundred feet of its true position.

Also, I’m not sure about the use of the word “sequential” in the description of time, as the events were happening in parallel.

Isn’t it enough to show how many things were happening in parallel and how long this went on in real time in order to show how absurd it is to think that bells and whistles were not going off all over the place, both in people’s minds and on their tracking consoles in the command and control centers?

(It is perhaps past time to get some information on marketing strategies and general principals of teaching.)
