2,432. 9/11/2001

The 9/11 Commission’s report “reduced to a footnote details of the three major war games being conducted on 9/11 [2001], including an exercise by the Northeast Air Defense Sector of NORAD that initially confused officials responsible for protecting New York. Worse, it ignored a remarkable account cited earlier by the commission’s own chairman, [former New Jersey governor] Thomas Kean, that F-16s from his home state of New Jersey were moments away from Lower Manhattan but never called by NORAD to interdict the Twin Towers attack.”
