[世界歷史] American Conspiracies



[隱藏]
The devil is in the details
魔鬼藏在細節裡

轉載】The planes are all hijacked between 7:45 and 8:10 AM Eastern Daylight Time. Who is notified ? This is an event already that is UNPRECEDENTED. But BUSH is NOT notified and going to a Florida elementary school to hear children read.

By around 8:15 AM it should be very apparent that something is terribly wrong. BUT BUSH is glad-handing teachers. By 8:45, when American Airlines' Flight 11 crashes into the World Trade Center, BUSH is settling in with children for HIS photo ops at Booker Elementary. Four planes have obviously BEEN hijacked simultaneously, an event NEVER before seen in history, and one has just dived into the world's best-known twin towers, and STILL NO one notifies BUSH (the Commander-in-Chief).

轉載】NO one has apparently scrambled [sent aloft] any Air Force interceptors either. At 9:03, United Flight 175 crashes into the remaining World Trade Center building. At 9:05 Andrew Card, BUSH'S Chief-of-Staff, whispers to BUSH [who] "briefly turns somber" according to reporters. (BUT) Does BUSH cancel the school visit and convene an emergency meeting ? NO. BUSH resumes listening to second graders ... and continues the banality even as American Airlines' Flight 77 conducts an unscheduled point turn over Ohio and heads in the direction of Washington DC.

Has BUSH instructed Chief-of-Staff Card to scramble the Air Force ? NO. An excruciating 25 minutes later, BUSH finally deigns to give a public statement telling the United States what they have already figured out -- that there's been an attack by hijacked planes on the World Trade Center. There's a hijacked plane beelining to Washington, but has the Air Force been scrambled to defend anything yet ? NO.

【轉載】At 9:30 when BUSH makes his announcement, American Flight 77 is STILL ten minutes from its target, the Pentagon. BUSH'S Administration will later claim they had no way of knowing that the Pentagon might be a target, and they thought Flight 77 was headed to the White House, BUT the fact is that the plane has already flown South and past the White House no-fly zone, and is in fact tearing through the sky at 400 nauts.

At 9:35, this plane conducts another turn, 360 degrees over the Pentagon, all the while BEING tracked by radar, BUT the Pentagon is NOT evacuated, and there are STILL NO fast-movers from the Air Force in the sky over Alexandria and DC. Now the real kicker: a pilot (i.e. the scapegoat) BUSH'S Administration want us to believe was trained at a Florida puddle-jumper school for Piper Cubs and Cessnas, conducts a well-controlled downward spiral descending the last 7,000 feet in two-and-a-half minutes, brings the plane in so low and flat that it clips the electrical wires across the street from the Pentagon, and flies it with PINPOINT accuracy into the side of the building at 460 nauts.

When the theory about learning to fly this well at the puddle-jumper school began to lose ground, it was added that they (i.e. the scapegoats) received further training on a flight simulator. This is like saying you prepared your teenager for her first drive on I-40 at rush hour by buying her a video driving game ....

There is a story BEING constructed about these tragic events.

轉載】January 28, '02. The Canadian media analyst Mr Barry Zwicker summed up on CBC-TV:

Throughout the northeastern United States are MANY air bases. BUT that morning (i.e. 9/ 11's morning) NO interceptors responded in a timely fashion to the highest alert situation. This includes the Andrews squadrons which have the longest lead-time and are twelve miles from the White House. Whatever the explanations for the huge failure, there have been NO reports, to my knowledge, of reprimands. This further WEAKENS the "Incompetence theory." Incompetence usually earns reprimands. This cause me to ask -- if there were "stand down" orders.

A year later, BBC (August 29, 2002) reports on  9/ 11 that "there are ONLY four fighters on ready status in the northeastern U.S." Conspiracy ? Coincidence ? Error ?
