Failure To Imagine The 9/11 Attacks Debunked

The Officiial Excuse for 9/11, 'Failure To Imagine' Excuse Debunked!

The Bush Administration offered up the 'failure to imagine' excuse for the response to 9/11.
President Bush: "We knew he [Osama bin Laden] had designs on us, we knew he hated us. But there was nobody in our government, and I don't think [in] the prior government, that could envision flying airplanes into buildings on such a massive scale," he said.

Well according to NORAD's own statements, Project Positive Force, a Special Operations unit tasked with thinking like a terrorist and how they might attack the United States, "imagined" that a hijacked plane would be crashed into the Pentagon.

Terry Ropes, the Special Operations officier, defended the idea, but Pacific Command thought it was too unrealistic. Numerous warnings in the late 1990's also included a possible plot to fly an explosive laden aircraft into an American city.

The information contained in the explosive report, also discusses NORAD's regular intercept exercises of hijack aircraft prior to 9/11!

NORAD

This is one of the MAJOR problems with the official account, and NEEDS to be resolved.

The NORAD Papers II

http://deanjackson60.googlepages.com/thenoradpapersii

In The NORAD Papers we learned from documents dating from the 1990s that NORAD had three core missions since its creation in 1958. These are:

a. surveillance and control of the airspace of the United States and Canada;

b. providing the NCAs with tactical warning and attack assessment of an aerospace attack against North America; and

c. providing an appropriate response to any form of an air attack.

The last two missions constitute NORAD’s "outward" search for hostile aircraft approaching the North American continent. NORAD’s first mission, however, tasks the agency to monitor and control all aircraft within the United States’ and Canada’s air space. This is what NORAD calls "air sovereignty". Let’s take a closer look at what constitutes "air sovereignty".

As reported by the Government Accountability Office in 1994 "NORAD defines air sovereignty as providing surveillance and control of the territorial airspace, which includes:

1. intercepting and destroying uncontrollable air objects;

Midwest Pilot Almost Hit Plane On 9/11 (Touching History)

Wait; are they suuurre that wasn't a missile surrounded by a hologram? Well, it's just establishment propaganda anyway; i do hope someone or many are checking it for new info, contradictions, lies, distortions, slip-ups and the like, i don't have the time (or the brains)

Midwest Pilot Almost Hit Plane On 9/11
Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Midwest Airlines pilot Gerald Earwood was flying about 100 miles west of New York when he first noticed what seemed like wisps of smoke coming off the World Trade Center.

Roughly 15 minutes later, Earwood and co-pilot Eric Fjelstad were frantically maneuvering their DC-9 jet to avoid colliding with United Airlines Flight 175, the second airplane to hit the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Their work, following orders from air traffic controllers, saved the lives of about 30 passengers and five crew members of Midwest Flight 7.

A minute or so later, United 175 -- which also came close to colliding with other planes that morning -- struck the south tower of the World Trade Center.

Pilot Adds Perspective To Sept. 11 Attacks: "Touching History"

"In some cases, the facts published in this book, as told to her in interviews with airmen and airline pilots who were involved, differ markedly from the account in The 9/11 Commission Report," retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Larry Arnold, the commander of 1st Air Force in Panama City on Sept. 11, said in "Touching History."
"After reading this book, you decide," Arnold wrote."

Pilot Adds Perspective To Sept. 11 Attacks

By TED JACKOVICS
The Tampa Tribune
Published: June 8, 2008

Updated:

"Touching History: The Untold Story of the Drama That Unfolded in the Skies Over America on 9/11," by Lynn Spencer (Free Press, $26)

The late U.S. Army Col. Milton "Bud" Halsey once shared his thoughts on how Cold War air defense units would have responded in an attack on the United States.
"You never know how individuals will react in combat," said Halsey, a Bronze and Silver Star-decorated veteran of two wars. "You have to wait until they take some hits. You won't know how well they will perform until you learn how they respond to casualties."

Retouching History

On her June 4 program Diane Rehm's guest was ExpressJet pilot Lynn Spencer promoting her "inside" account of the purported 9/11 FAA/NORAD Keystone Cops debacle, "Touching History".

http://wamu.org/programs/dr/08/06/04.php#20305

http://www.amazon.com/Touching-History-Untold-Unfolded-America/dp/1400107601

In the course of selling her book and the (latest) official narrative, Spencer nervously contradicted herself and repeated various breathtakingly false, easily-dismissed assertions about the aerial events of 9/11.

Incredibly, she echoed Rice's perjury that "no one had ever imagined terrorists using airliners as missiles", apparently unaware that even USA Today reported in 2004 that NORAD had conducted exercises based on this scenario, specifying targets including the World Trade Center.

Official account re: NORAD not true

From DNotice.org:

5/28/08 One Of Our Aircraft Isn't Missing

From the Ministry of Defense, June 4, 2008
Air America

Testifying before the 9/11 Commission General Richard Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the commission in response to NORAD’s mission, "I can't answer the hypothetical. It's more - it's the way that we were directed to posture, looking outward."1 This is utterly false. As we will see below NORAD, since its inception, was tasked to monitor and intercept aircraft flying over American and Canadian air space seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

I don't have much experience with "GovernmentAttic.com", but their site has the following statement:

Video Book Review: "9/11 Contradictions"

TRANSCRIPT:

David Ray Griffin provides more food for thought with the release of his 5th single-author book on the events of September the 11th... 9/11 Contradictions. (Purchase a copy from 911truth.org here.)

Soon, we will be seven years away from an event scorched into our collective consciousness, (and collective unconscious), but for those of us who have taken the time to revisit that day in our memories and in various forms of media: audio, video, the written word... it hasn't put seven years of distance between us and 9/11, rather, 9/11 has become a historical event known in intimate detail by students in a global, open-university setting.

Bill Doyle, Father of 9/11 Victim, SPEAKS OUT!

From infowars.com
Sunday, February 17, 2008
"A condensed video of an original Alex Jones radio interview with 9/11 activist Bill Doyle, father of Joey Doyle, who was killed in the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York."

EXCERPTS:

“We have two planes fly into the towers and all of a sudden they get blown up within an hour and a half - that’s impossible,” said Doyle.

Doyle estimated that around half of the family members his organization represents think that there was government complicity in the attacks.
