Surely our Air Force with jetfighters that fly 3x faster than the hijacked planes and are always on alert and patrolling our skies could have at least intercepted one of these four hijacked planes.
Where was NORAD with all of its expensive and sophisticated radar and warning systems? How did the hijackers successfully infiltrate the cockpits on all four planes and take over without a single one of the eight pilots and co-pilots on board activating any distress signals from the planes? And the most puzzling one for me was, how in the hell did they manage to hit the Pentagon???
The Pentagon is our nation's military headquarters, arguably our most prime military target to be attacked. It has a restricted airspace around it. Andrews Air Force Base is less the 15 miles away and is home to the D.C. Air Nation Guard and Air Force One.
The plane that hit there crashed at approx. , 35 minutes after our military knew we were under attack after the 2nd WTC plane crash at , 42 minutes after Flight 77’s transponder was turned off at approx. 8:56 am, and 105 minutes after NORAD first claimed the FAA alerted them at approx. 8:43 am of the 2nd hijacking in the air. Why didn’t our military send up jetfighters immediately to protect Washington D.C. and other strategic areas of our country during an attack? Are we supposed to believe that our military, with all of its knowledge and might, never thought to protect its headquarters against an attack?
Things just didn’t add up. The attacks just seemed too massive to just come out of the blue without any warnings and it seemed so odd to me that the terrorists would plan multiple hard-target suicide attacks and no soft-target attacks. We were attacked in a most dramatic way and then as fast as it happened, it was all over. No follow up attacks, no nothing. Not even a peep out of any terrorist group trying to claim responsibility that I was aware of.
Weeks later, my skepticism grew. On the radio, I heard that the area where the plane hit the Pentagon just happened to hit a section that was nearly empty due to renovation and to top it off, it was being renovated to "bolster it against an attack." As my eyes rolled after I heard this whopper of a coincidence, I remember saying to myself, "Oh geez, they [the military] probably allowed it to crash there." I know what I was saying had severe implications, but at the time I really didn’t think too much more about it. I was still going through the shock and horror from the attacks and thinking about all those poor souls who died so horribly when watching the WTC towers collapsing and crushing them to death over, and over, and over again from being glued to the TV for days afterwards.
Another thing that I was wondering about was how weird it was that two huge skyscrapers could not only collapse, but virtually disintegrate...
into a pile of rubble only a few stories high.
Even though I believed planes crashed into them and without knowing much about structural engineering, they just seemed to collapse too perfectly. If one tower collapsed straight down as they did, but the other one didn’t collapse or the top section that started to collapse slid off to the side and left most or some of the tower still standing, I probably wouldn’t have ever thought anything weird about it.
Then, a couple months later, it all came together for me. One day while killing time on an internet message board (you know, I was bored at work) I came across a post with a link on it that changed my thoughts about 9/11 forever. When I clicked on it out of curiosity, it showed something that never dawned on me to check out before; pictures of the Pentagon crash scene.
Literally within seconds of looking at the photos, I instantly knew that the plane we were told that crashed into the Pentagon didn’t.
A few weeks later after that, my belief in a government conspiracy regarding 9/11 was reaffirmed exponentially after seeing another whopper of a discover on the internet, the collapse of another huge WTC building on 9/11 that I somehow missed seeing or even hearing about in the news even though I was glued to the TV, radio, and internet for weeks after the attacks.
Funny how the collapse of a third huge skyscraper, one that collapsed hours after the North Tower did and wasn’t hit by a plane or right next to the twin towers, barely got any media attention.
With these two obvious smoking guns in my mind, I thought it would be easy to help wake up the rest of the country to what really happened on 9/11 and to bring the real culprits to justice. Little did I know that these were the types of people I was up against...
That's when I started Killtown.
