1. Great post!
Edited on Wed Jun-22-05 05:56 PM by John Doe II
And here my favorite:

You said earlier in your testimony that we had not scrambled any military aircraft until after the Pentagon was hit. And so, my question would be: why? {stickdog's note: why, indeed!}

GENERAL MYERS: I think I had that right, that it was not until then. I'd have to go back and review the exact time-lines.

Yeah, that's the kind of answers that you get promoted....!

When did who phone whom?

In the above mentioned statement Myers says that he phoned Eberhart after the second attack (not explaining of course why then they waited for another 35 minutes and the Pentagon attack to happen before scrambling fighters.
In the following account by Myers it"s Eberhart who phoned him AFTER the Pentagon hit!

Sometime during that office call the second tower was hit. Nobody informed us of that.
But when we came out, that was obvious. Then right at that time somebody said the Pentagon has been hit.
I immediately,
somebody handed me a cell phone, and it was General Eberhart
out at NORAD in Colorado Springs talking about what was happening and the actions he was going to take.
We immediately,
after talking to him, jumped in the car, ran back to the Pentagon.

(Armed Forces Radio and Television Service, 10/17/01)

And did the Commission ask for clarification ...........?
