Jets were scrambled but very late, and by design.

if you look into it you will find out that dick cheney (bush jr's VP) was heading up a training event that brought all the jets from the area and placed them far away, hence the delay. the training was to stop a terrorist event, so when you look at the jets that do show up the flight recorder shows that they were confused as to weather this was part of the training excercise.

Oh, I'm fully aware.

Also, does it make at least a little bit of sense that there would be more caution taken with stolen planes after several of them are used to murder thousands of people?

[–] EndTheFed2 2 points 9 points (+11|-2) ago 

2 planes.. 3 buildings fell

Israel did 9/11

And the reason the press won't tell the truth.

List of some "coincidental" exercises on 9/11:

  • Timely Alert II something about concrete barriors

  • Operation Northern Vigilance: jets were removed from patrolling the U.S. east coast and sent to Alaska and Canada

  • Tripod II: joint New York City-Department of Justice bio-warfare exercise, scheduled for Sept 12th, 2001 at New York’s Pier 29, and mentioned in testimony by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani at the 9/11 Commission

  • Operation Vigilant Guardian: simulated hijacked planes

  • Operation Northern Guardian: simulating hijacked planes

  • Operation Vigilant Warrior,: referenced in Richard Clarke’s book, Against All Enemies. He writes that acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Richard Myers, tells him via video link that ‘‘We are in the middle of Vigilant Warrior, a NORAD exercise"

  • Global Guardian: According to the Center’s research, Stratcom may have incorporated a computer network attack into Global Guardian with the claimed ability to actually shut down its own systems.

Lt. Col. Dawne Deskins, regional Mission Crew Chief for the Vigilant Guardian exercise said that everyone at the North East Air Defense Sector (NEADS), part of NORAD, initially thought the first call received about the real 9/11 hijackings was part of the war games scenario(Seely, 2002).

Seely, H. (2002). Amid crisis simulation, ‘‘We were suddenly’’ no-kidding under attack. Newhouse News Service, (January 25), 18–22.

Also if you were unaware: Bomb sniffing dogs were removed from the towers 2 weeks prior to the event.

Marvin Bush quit his job at the towers prior to the event and the day he chose as his last day: 9/11. His next job was American Airlines. Barbara Bush confirmed this in an interview and possibly in her book.

You forgot the newly negotiated insurance polices on the WTC buildings 6 weeks before the attack. The policy was so fresh, in fact, that there was much haggling for years over which policy was in effect at the time: the old one or the new one which had not been finalized at the time of the attack.

Seems like there were a lot of coincidences on 9/11.

[–] BLOODandHONOUR 1 points 17 points (+18|-1) ago 

9/11 was SUPPOSED to happen, remember? This particular incident wasn’t. Know the difference

[–] RaptorJesus 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

9/11 is when everything started going to shit.

[–] BLOODandHONOUR 2 points 6 points (+8|-2) ago 

70 AD I think you mean

[–] thedayismine 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

their plan worked perfectly and we may never see justice for 9/11 happen, it's sickening.

Unfortunately, this pretty much sums it up.

I remember jets being scrambled after the 2 hit the towers. Was near the crash site in PA at the time. FYI I believe it was shot down in that rural area to avoid it reaching the target of 3 mile. (5-10mins away with rough calculations) I remember many news stations talking about what would happen if a plane hit a nuclear power facility. This is based on locals that described the tail being blown off and the consequential crash and also evacuations of city centers (The one I know of was Johnstown - famous for being flooded from a broken dam) in the area prior to the crash.

I was in NY on that horrible day. I have a loved one who worked a few buildings away, and I was at Penn Station when the first plane hit. I watched both buildings fall with my own eyes, and heard fighter jets overhead after the first one fell and before the second one.

I remember they were so loud, I thought they were low flying commercial jets. I remember standing in the middle of 7th avenue swiveling my head, waiting for one of them to hit the Empire State building.

I remember the stink as I tried to push further down to find my loved on, and I remember the dead silence and dusk that covered everything as my reunited lived one and I escaped the city by train for a parent's home in the north the next day.

I remember the cabbie from that northern train station who clued me into the date "Sept 11, 911, get it?" Bad days that I try to forget.

Sounds like those jets didn't quite get there in time.

My parents woke me up (west coast) after the first tower was hit, and we watched the second tower get hit on TV. I went to school, but we didn't really have real classes that day, we mostly just watched the news, and then the towers collapsed. Everyone was pretty freaked out and confused at that point.

The only other time I remember classes being cancelled for a news broadcast was for the OJ Simpson verdict... and I remember the one muslim kid in the class jumped up and cheered when they said OJ was not guilty. Everyone else looked at each other like, "wtf? that nigger is hella guilty." That kid was always an dumb asshole. Ultimately he got "asked" to leave and go attend a different school.

It’s funny how it was timed like a Hollywood script in real life. Im sure the whole world was awake and watching by the time the second plane hit, if not surely for the building collapse. Just like in a good movie script get everyone paying attention before the big surprise

Surprised no one replied with this: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x26miir at about 6min 45s

Most military air resources were used up doing training missions on 9/11. What are the odds?

[–] Doglegwarrior 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I would put the odds at .000001 percent.

You conspiracy kooks. Next thing you'll be saying is the NSA reads my emails.
