Let me pose a another question.
On 9-11 President Bush was visiting a school. While at the school he found out that the planes had crashed into the towers. Assuming terrorists from another country are smart enough to infiltrate our airlines and crash planes into 2 large buildings and the U.S. defense system then they probably know of President Bush's whereabouts at that time as I am sure he had this school trip planned for a while. Wouldn't Bush and his cronies have assumed this also and got the heck out of dodge once they heard the news? I mean why stay in one place and jeopardize themselves and and whole school of children? He just sat there leisurely and read with the children...seems a bit odd to me.
Even if they did know, what would they have done about it? Shoot it down over NYC?
Even if they didn't want to shoot down the planes ...fighter jets should have been on their tail and trying to figure out what was going on. there is evidence that in fact fighter jets were sent to intercept flights 11 and 175 but the planes were called from Otis Air Force in stead of Andrews which is nearer. Stalling???
Because of where the building was it, and the structural damage it sustained was far more severe.
I just don't see how it could have been hot enough to melt steel down to the lower floors. The fires were certainly hot on some floors but not on all. Steel buildings have burned in the past and were still standing after 24 hours. Not to mention there are eyewitness accounts that people heard flashes and heard the popping sound that controlled demolition makes.
Where are the remains of the planes that hit the pentagon? I never remember seeing plane parts on TV. Not to mention why hit the side of the pentagon where there were no top officials? the size of the hole in the pentagon is not the size of a huge plane.
Yes it was what? I could not say for sure that something moving that fast was actually what it was....not to mention the mind can play tricks on us. We would assume it was a plane so our mind thinks/sees plane. A missle could also look like a plane. I would be interested in seeing footage of the plane ...I have yet to find any pictures of the remnants online (other than tiny pieces) http://911research.wtc7.net/mirrors/kil ... ll3070.jpg
Where is the plane????
When asked by a journalist: "Is there anything left of the aircraft at all?"
To a fire chief.
"First of all, the question about the aircraft, there are some small pieces of aircraft visible from the interior during this fire-fighting operation I'm talking about, but not large sections. In other words, there's no fuselage sections and that sort of thing." "You know, I'd rather not comment on that. We have a lot of eyewitnesses that can give you better information about what actually happened with the aircraft as it approached. So we don't know. I don't know."
"His gas station, open only to Department of Defense personnel, is the last structure between the Pentagon and the hillside that, hours later, would become a wailing knoll. "By the time I got outside all I could see was a giant cloud of smoke, first white then black, coming from the Pentagon," he said. "It was just a terrible, terrible thing to be so close to."
"Velasquez says the gas station's security cameras are close enough to the Pentagon to have recorded the moment of impact. "I've never seen what the pictures looked like," he said. "The FBI was here within minutes and took the film." -National Geographic (12/11/01)
How could a plane burn up so fast. There have been many plane crashes and plenty of evidence of a plane.
Besides you didn't answer my question as to why the pentagon didn't know ...wouldn't the building have some sort of defense. if some large fast moving object was barrelling at it wouldn't there be guns/cannons to stop it?
A final note taken from a book by David Griffin is that according to a document prepared by the Project for the New American Century which inlcludes the likes of Rumsfield, Libby, Cheney that there are 3 major themes. 1. to place more military bases around the world from which power can be projected. 2 the need to bring around regime change in countries unfriendly to american interests. 3. the need for greatly increaed military spending - esp. defense. The document stated that the desired transformation of the military would be politically impossible absent some catastrophic-catalyzing event - like a new pearl harbor. Coincedence?
Don't get me wrong I feel deeply for those who sufferred because of it. I just feel our goverment had a hand and this could have been prevented.
doesn't anybody think anything fishy is going on with Delay, Libby, Cheney with Enron?
