The Failure to Defend the Skies on 9/11

Found an interesting web site that has interesting information and timelines on 9/11.

http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/essay.jsp?article=essayairdefense

And here's a timeline for GWB that morning:

http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/essay.jsp?article=essayaninterestingday

For instance, did you know that the morning of 9/11 in Florida:

At about the same time Bush was getting ready for his jog, a van carrying several Middle Eastern men pulled up to the Colony's guard station. The men said they were a television news crew with a scheduled “poolside” interview with the president. They asked for a certain Secret Service agent by name. The message was relayed to a Secret Service agent inside the resort, who hadn't heard of the agent mentioned or of plans for an interview. He told the men to contact the president's public relations office in Washington, DC, and had the van turned away.

I agree with a lot of the accounts, except for the accounts about the NORAD not scrambling the F-15s from Otis AFB. I was there. I came out of Tower Two (or the South Tower) at about 9:14 a.m. and about 9:16 a.m., I saw the two F-15s in spread formation. Yes, I was there. 82nd Floor of Two World Trade Center. Nothing has been erased from my memory.

Wow man, thats pretty incredible. When and ONLY IF you feel comfortable, you should start a thread detailing your experiences on that day. I for one would be enthralled by what you had to say.

IanMB,

Yes, you must have seen the 2 F-15's from Otis, which (according to the 9-11 timeline, arrived at 9:11am. There is also a video on this site that questions whether they were actually there before that time.

http://www.911timeline.net/

66) 9:11 a.m.: The two F-15 Eagles from Otis Air National Guard station in Falmouth; Massachusetts finally make it to NYC and the WTC. So it takes these two F-15’s, which have a top speed of 1875+ MPH, 19 minutes to cover the 153 miles from Otis to the WTC. This means their average flight speed from Otis to the WTC was only 483.2 MPH or just 25.8% of their top speed.

-----------------------------------
I can't image what you went through that morning and thankfully you made it out safely.

Well, I will be really happy to share my experiences if you guys really, really want to hear. Some people, for reasons unknown, get bent out of shape when I share without asking them first (and I end up having to console them.. can you imagine?).

I came down the center stairwell of Two WTC, for real, but it wasn't as big a deal as those who came down One WTC, except for those in Two WTC above the 77th floor sky lobby after the plane had hit. A guy in my company was still on the 81st floor and he saw (verified and confirmed a million times) the nose of the United 767. He was touched by the hand of God and now has devoted his life to the Ministry.

OK. I'll stop there for now.

Yes, I would like to hear about it. There are so many stories, yet few we really hear about, especially 1st person.

Sitting here on the opposite side of the country that morning, I could only watch in horror.

I was sound asleep and my husband woke me up. He told me, 'Honey, you better get up. Someone just flew a plane into the World Trade Center. I think we're under attack."

Hearing those words in my sleep brought me to my feet. He left for work and I called my girlfriend in LA. We watched together in near silence and disbelief.

I remember calling both my daughters who lived in LA and told them not to go to work. Remember, at the time they were saying there were planes headed for LA too.

All this time, I knew it was Bush's fault those planes crashed into the buildings and that farm. Finally, somebody makes the case.
