"What matter who's speaking, someone said, what matter who's speaking."
Urgent warnings to Rice, Rumsfeld and Ashcroft; truly mindboggling incompetence or something much worse; perjury; cover-ups; and a 9/11 Commission in the government's pocket.
PROSECUTE THE CRIMINALS.
Didn't know about this until I read it on the omnibus today.Ben Sliney was the Federal Aviation Administration's operations manager on September 11, 2001, his first day in the job...First day in the job, only time NORAD had a civilian in charge, concurrent, confusing wargames....Those a-rabs sure picked the right day. If I was that lucky, I'd do the lottery.
Yup. And John O'Neill just removed unceremoniously from the FBI's counter-terrorism unit and starting his first week's work at the WTC. And fresh-faced Captain Charles Leidig enjoying a baptism of fire..."8:30 a.m.: Rookie in Command of the NMCC Captain Charles Leidig, the deputy for Command Center operations at the NMCC, takes over temporarily from Brigadier General Montague Winfield and is effectively in charge of NMCC during the 9/11 crisis. Winfield had requested the previous day that Leidig stand in for him on September 11. Leidig had started his role as Deputy for Command Center Operations two months earlier and had qualified to stand in for Winfield just the previous month. Leidig remains in charge from a few minutes before the 9/11 crisis begins until about 10:30 a.m., after the last hijacked plane crashes. He presides over an important crisis response teleconference that has a very slow start, not even beginning until 9:39 a.m. [9/11 Commission, 6/17/2004; 9/11 Commission, 6/17/2004]"http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/entity.jsp?id=1521846767-1968Meanwhile, Rumsfeld was enjoying a long leisurely breakfast and was apparently unreachable even by mobile.
