9/11 NORAD tapes, commission deception, and outright lies

Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.

Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission, hoping to hide the bungled response to the hijackings, these sources said. [NOTE: these are the types of matters the the Inspector General of DOD would handle. If David H. Laufman is confirmed forget about any honesty. He is a BushBoy...has been for decades.]

Vanity Fair has an exclusive on the release of the the NORAD tapes from September 11, 2001. Click here for the article.

BOSTON CENTER: Hi. Boston Center T.M.U. [Traffic Management Unit], we have a problem here. We have a hijacked aircraft headed towards New York, and we need you guys to, we need someone to scramble some F-16s or something up there, help us out.
POWELL: Is this real-world or exercise?
BOSTON CENTER: No, this is not an exercise, not a test.

09:04:50—Is this explosion part of that that we're lookin' at now on TV?—Yes.—Jesus …—And there's a possible second hijack also—a United Airlines …—Two planes?…—Get the fuck out …—I think this is a damn [wargame] input, to be honest.
[Thank you Dick Cheney.]

More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll. You may say, "There is no way that our government would do such a horrible thing." I wish you were right. Our government can and has proposed similar things in the past. Not only that, but Daddy Bush drilled for 911 all the way back in 1976. It should be easier to believe such a seemingly outlandish claim considering that 50% or US citizens wrongly believe that Saddam Hussein had WMD and that is why Bush invaded Iraq. Sadly, the WMD claim has yet to be proven. Hussein had a bad attitude and tried to kill Bush's dad, but he did not have WMD. Call the Pentagon and ask for proof of any WMD in Iraq...good luck. Do your research. Don't just believe what you are told.
