Norad - Tracking Station
Despite government rejections that such
an attack had ever been envisaged, the North American Aerospace
Defense Command (NORAD) ran drills in the years previous simulating
the exact 9/11 plot:
NORAD had drills of jets as weapons
In the two years before the Sept. 11 attacks, the North American
Aerospace Defense Command conducted exercises simulating what the
White House says was unimaginable at the time: hijacked airliners
used as weapons to crash into targets and cause mass casualties. One
of the imagined targets was the World Trade Center...
USA Today, 18 March 2004
It has been reported that similar drills also occurred on the
morning of 9/11 itself, apparently confusing air traffic
controllers, and were offered as one of the many excuses for
military failures. Indeed, NORAD did not respond until 85 minutes
after the initial impact. Standard operating procedure is to
scramble jets the moment a plane leaves its course, a procedure
already put into practice 67 times by the American military that

Grounded on 9/11
In response to
the attacks on September 11, 2001, the FAA orders all planes out of
the air. American and Canadian air traffic controllers face a
difficult situation: how to safely re-route and land 6,500 planes
carrying close to a million people. For individual air traffic
controllers, the work is chaotic, intense, and deceptively simple:
pick a new route for each flight; radio instructions to turn; listen
for pilot confirmation; hold traffic to keep airways from
overcrowding. From Cleveland, Ohio to Gander, Newfoundland and
Labrador, controllers on September 11 searched for alternate
airports to land large jets as their traumatized colleagues return
from breaktime having watched the attacks on TV.
of All Airplanes by FAA - ABC News ( 2 mins)
There are 35 USAF bases within
of the 9/11 flights, which included
restricted airspace surrounding the Pentagon, Capitol Hill and
White House. It is hard to believe that a military which
possesses such a highly-sophisticated radar
system would not
have been able to track the highjacked aircraft without
a transponder signal.
One explanation offered was
that the terrorists turned off the electronic device known as a
transponder, which helps
identify aircraft on radar. As stated by
the 9/11 Commission, it is possible, though
more difficult, to track
an aircraft by its primary radar returns without the transponder.

Returns do not show
the aircraft’s identity and altitude.

Most people don’t realize that on
September 11th, planes were known to be high jacked and flying
around the Eastern US for over 70 minutes. After September 11th,
many wondered why our air force was unable to stop the high jacked
aircraft, especially American Airlines Flight 77 which struck the
Pentagon. American Airlines Flight 11 was high jacked at 8:14. By
8:25 Boston air traffic controllers confirmed that the flight was
indeed high jacked and the aircraft struck the North Tower of the
World Trade Center at 8:46. At 9:03, United Airlines Flight 175
struck the South Tower and at that time, the whole world knew that
America was under attack. It was not until 9:37 that American
Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon. ...

Although I said earlier we should resist the
temptation to favor one witness statement over and above another,
there is nonetheless one witness whose testimony I believe deserves
particular mention. Actually this witness wasn't an eyewitness at
all because she did not see the incident directly. Nevertheless her
account is of particular significance because her exposure to the
incident was not as a shocked and surprised observer. It took place
within the context of her everyday professional work.
O'Brien was on duty that day as an air traffic controller at Dulles
Airport and tracked the approaching Flight 77 on radar as it entered
Washington airspace. Of the incoming plane she reported to ABC
"The speed, the maneuverability, the way that he turned, we all
thought in the radar room, all of us experienced air traffic
controllers, that that was a military plane....And it went six,
five, four. And I had it in my mouth to say, three, and all of a
sudden the plane turned away. In the room, it was almost a sense of
relief. This must be a fighter. This must be one of our guys sent
in, scrambled to patrol our capital, and to protect our president,
and we sat back in our chairs and breathed for just a second".
So while the overwhelming majority of eyewitnesses were convinced
they saw a regular Boeing passenger jet, professional air traffic
controllers were convinced they were tracking a military plane. If
this puzzling contradiction is to be resolved we must turn our minds
to the other evidence.

Why the Planes Were Not Intercepted
on 9/11 – Article
The 9/11 Commission wrote in its report that – “On 9/11, the defense
of U.S. airspace depended on close interaction between two federal
agencies: the FAA and the North American Aerospace Defense Command
According to the Commission, this interaction began with air traffic
controllers (ATCs) at the relevant regional FAA control centers,
which on 9/11 included Boston, New York, Cleveland, and
Indianapolis. In the event of a hijacking, these ATCs were expected
to “notify their supervisors, who in turn would inform management
all the way up to FAA headquarters. Headquarters had a hijack
coordinator, who was the director of the FAA Office of Civil
Aviation Security or his or her designate. “
The hijack coordinator would then “contact the Pentagon’s National
Military Command Center (NMCC)” and “the NMCC would then seek
approval from the Office of the Secretary of Defense to provide
military assistance. If approval was given, the orders would be
transmitted down NORAD’s chain of command [to the interceptor

Visibility 911: A dozen
Questions about Flight 77 from Kevin Ryan
A dozen questions about Flight 77 and the
Pentagon that might lead to justice, and one that won’t.
There are many questions to be
answered about the events at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
Here are a dozen such questions that, if answered, might help to
bring about justice.
* Exactly how was Flight 77
hijacked, considering, among other things, that the alleged
hijackers were said to be identified as security risks (possibly
linked to al Qaeda) when they tried to board, and were not
physically imposing (all 5 and a half feet tall or less, and
slender in build)?
* H ow was the nation’s air defense system disabled on 9/11, and how could
anything have hit the Pentagon approximately 80 minutes after
the first plane was known to be hijacked?
* Why was Dick Cheney tracking Flight 77?
* Why were explosive experts, who had a history of covering-up the OKC
bombing and have since been accused of obstructing other
investigations, hired to write the FEMA report? (Mete Sozen and
* Why did the roof of the Pentagon collapse 30 minutes after impact,
giving additional evidence for the use of explosives? Note: The
use of explosives at the Pentagon seems to be in agreement with
the use of a large plane, which would have had little
Why was AMEC, the company that had just finished refurbishing
Wedge 1 of the Pentagon, hired to lead the clean-up effort at
* Why did the NTSB not make public reports on any of the planes as is the
* Why did none of the planes squawk the hijack code?
* Why was the official explanation for alleged phone calls made by Flight
77 passenger Barbara Olsen changed several times, and ultimately
how could Ted Olsen’s story make any sense?
* Why did high-ranking Pentagon officials cancel travel plans for the
morning of September 11 “…apparently because of security
* How could Hani Hanjour still have successfully piloted Flight 77 given
his poor qualifications?
* Why are those interested in The Pentagon not intently reviewing
documents released by the FAA and 9/11 Commission that reveal
startling questions about the aircraft and events of that day?
* Why are these questions NOT being
pursued by independent investigators? That’s because the attention
of many potential investigators has been hijacked by the much less
useful question of “What hit the Pentagon.” This is certainly the
favorite subject of intentional disruptors and official story

Why there probably was NOT (?) a
"stand down" order:
explaining the "failure" of the Trillion Dollar Air Force to defend
One of the first anomalies that many people noticed immediately
after 9/11 was the inexplicable non-reaction of the military air
defense system to the hijackings.
It has been standard operating procedures for decades to
immediately intercept off course planes that do not respond to
communications from air traffic controllers. When the Air Force
"scrambles" a fighter plane to intercept, they usually reach the
plane in question in minutes. The Air Force plane will then fly next
to the non-responsive plane, and rock their wings -- a way to say
"follow me" to a nearby airport (if the plane merely has lost its
radio equipment). If the intercepted plane refuses to respond, there
is a graduated series of actions the Air Force can use -- firing
tracer bullets in front of the plane, even shooting it down if it is
a threat. This is analogous to police pulling motorists over for
having their lights out - every driver in the US knows that when a
police car behind them turns on their siren, they are supposed to
pull over, just like every pilot knows that when an Air Force
fighter plane pulls beside them, they are supposed to follow their
orders, too. If the light bulb has merely burned out, the motorist
will get a warning, but the police have a graduated series of
responses they can employ if the driver is not merely having a
mechanical problem (ie. they have just robbed a bank and are driving
with the lights off to avoid being seen). ...

Norman Mineta - Cheney - Stand-down
Order on 9/11 ??
On the morning of September 11th,
2001, Vice President Dick Cheney was in charge of the military
response to the attacks while the President flew around the country
in Air Force One. The 9-11 Commission failed to follow up on the
nature of and order the Vice President had given which related to
American Airlines Flight 77 which hit the Pentagon at 9:36. Many
have wondered if these orders were NOT to shoot down Flight 77 as it
approached the Pentagon.
We know about this order because on May 23, 2003, then
Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta testified before the 9-11
Commission. Secretary Mineta testified that he was present at the
Presidential Emergency Operating Center (PEOC) in a bunker below the
White House on the morning of September 11th under the direction of
Vice President Dick Cheney. During questioning by Co-Chairman Lee
Hamilton, Mineta was asked if he was in the PEOC when the
Presidential order was given to shoot down suspected hijacked

Transportation – Testimony at the 9/11 hearings ( 4 mins)
Bush Knew of 9/11. Cheney Forced NORAD to Stand Down
The thing that sticks out - Cheney knew about an incoming flight!
What were the orders? If it was for a shoot down, why weren't the
Pentagon, Capitol building and White House evacuated... What if the
orders were to let the incoming aircraft hit?
Cheney's Stand-down Order
In giving evidence to the 9/11 Congressional Commission, and despite
coercive questioning to the contrary, Secretary of Transportation
Norman Mineta described how Dick Cheney was informed well in advance
that a plane was headed for the Pentagon but consciously failed to
issue a shoot-down order. From the testimony:
"There was a young man who had come in and said to the vice
president, 'The plane [headed for the Pentagon] is 50 miles out
[...] The plane is 30 miles out.' And when it got down to, 'The
plane is 10 miles out,' the young man also said to the vice
president, 'Do the orders still stand?' And the vice president
turned and whipped his neck around and said, 'Of course the orders
still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?' Well, at the
time I didn't know what all that meant.
Mineta and the Secret Orders of
Cheney ( 5 mins)
In 2003, Former Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta testified
before the 9/11 Commission:
The Stand down order is related to new Military Rule
changed in June 2001 where the New Rule was that only an
Intercepting Plane could shot down a Highjacked or Terrorist Plane
by direct orders from the DOD/Pentagon Secretary of Defense ...
They couldn't locate Donald Rumsfeld for more than 2 Hrs on 9/11
That left the door open for any "Stand Down Order" to apply....
Willie Brown -
San Francisco Mayor
Three months before 9/11, Vice President
Dick Cheney usurped control of NORAD, and
therefore he alone had the power to call for military aircraft on
the hijacked airliners on 9/11. He did not exercise that power. On
the contrary, the Secretary of Transportation on 9/11, Norman Mineta,
testified that Dick Cheney gave a stand-down order to U.S. air
defense on 9/11. Three months after 9/11, Cheney relinquished
command of NORAD and returned it to military operation. Dick Cheney
was the CEO of Halliburton before becoming vice president.
Halliburton was awarded no bid contracts to occupy Iraq.
Donald Rumsfeld -
announced that the Pentagon could not account for $2.3 trillion
dollars on September 10, 2001 – (The Day before 9/11?? We never
again heard of those issues again??)
.The next day, the story was conveniently lost in the news of the
9/11 attacks. Rumsfeld also admitted that
Flight 93 was shot down, which was obvious given the fact
that parts of the plane were found scattered over 8 miles

know how they spend it, is just not accounted for.!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A number of top pentagon officials and
San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown
were warned not to fly into New York on the
morning of 9/11. Why didn’t the people on the targeted planes get
the same warnings?
The FBI had foreknowledge of the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing
and refused to stop it. Their informant wanted to
replace the live bomb with a fake, but the FBI then removed him from
the case. The informant felt he was being set-up and taped his
conversations with the FBI. The bombing killed six people and
injured over 1,000.
Governments, including the U.S. government, admit they engage in
false flag terror like Operation Northwoods, and the more recent
BATF Operation Fast and Furious scandal.
