27. General Myers is lying
I know this from second-hand experience. My wife worked at CINCPACFLT, had an ultra-super-secret clearance and would act as a courier at times. She went to the CINC's house in the middle of the night and rousted him from sleep to give him important information. He was "just" a lowly Admiral (equivalent to a General), but there was no way he could be out of touch.

Since intel had already warned of strikes in the US and we had properly secured Genoa against airliners, the first report of any aircraft striking the WTC would have caused alert levels to rise. The second one would definitely raise an alert, particularly since it was clearly seen to be a large aircraft flown purposely into the building. And any strike against the Pentagon would immediately place our forces at a war-time alert.

To think that no one brought this information to Gen. Myers in the middle of the day is absolutely ridiculous.
