9/11 PANEL SUSPECTED DECEPTION BY PENTAGON
Via WaPo, here:
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 . . .
"We to this day don't know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us," said Thomas H. Kean, the former New Jersey Republican governor who led the commission. "It was just so far from the truth. . . . It's one of those loose ends that never got tied. . ."
"I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described," John Farmer, a former New Jersey attorney general who led the staff inquiry into events on Sept. 11, said in a recent interview. "The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. . . . This is not spin. This is not true."
(I was shocked, shocked to think that our Fearless Leaders would lie to us, were not you?)
The 9/11 Norad Tapes
Via Vanity Fair, here, and you can listen to the tapes themselves.
8:46:36NASYPANY: Hi, sir. O.K., what—-what we're doing, we're tryin' to locate this guy. We can't find him via I.F.F. [the Identification Friend or Foe system]. What we're gonna do, we're gonna hit up every track within a 25-mile radius of this Z-point [coordinate] that we put on the scope. Twenty-nine thousand [feet] heading 1-9-0 [east]. We're just gonna do—we're gonna try to find this guy. They can't find him. There's supposedly been threats to the cockpit. So we're just doing the thing … [off-mic conversation] True. And probably right now with what's going on in the cockpit it's probably really crazy. So, it probably needs to—that will simmer down and we'll probably get some better information.
American 11 slammed into the north tower of the World Trade Center four seconds into this transmission.
(I was shocked, shocked to speculate that a fictional military exercise might have been cooked up in order to white-out and obscure oh say an evil Veep's usurpation of power at a time of national emergency, while his Preznit froze like a deer in the headlights, were not you?)
So, you see, Virginia--there are motherfuckin' snakes on the motherfuckin'plane:

Oh, and just wanted to give a hi! and a wave to a recent visitor from Iran, via Chahar Mahall va Bakhtiari, who arrived somehow here after googling 'porno pix' (linked to our story about JimmyJeff GannonGuckert). Repressed a little, are we?
