Where Was NORAD Sept. 11, 2001?
On Sept. 11, 2001, American Airlines Flight 11 left Logan Airport, and went off course at 8:15 a.m. and failed to follow instructions at 8:20 a.m. At 8:45 a.m. it crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center. That's 25 minutes.
American Airlines Flight 77 left Dulles Airport in Virginia (just 10 minutes from Andrews Air Force Base) at 8:10 a.m. It disappeared from radar at 8:56 a.m. when the hijackers turned off the transponder.
It was out of touch and off course for 46 minutes, flying to the Ohio border and back before crashing into the Pentagon at 9:40 a.m. At 8:56 a.m., when Flight 77 went off radar, Flight 11 had already crashed into the north tower of the WTC.
At 9:06 a.m., United Airlines Flight 175 was the third plane to crash. It hit the south tower of the WTC. Sequentially, this is 80 minutes of lost and off-course plane traffic.
As a result, more than 3,000 people were killed and a motive for war was announced. On Sept. 11, 2001, not one NORAD jet was dispatched until it was too late.
This was the work of a few senior officials and was never investigated. This timeline and much more detailed information can be found at www.public-action.com/911/noradsend.html.
I am urging Americans to ask their elected officials, "Where was NORAD on Sept. 11, 2001?" Demand an independent investigation into the whereabouts of NORAD on that day.
