64. I'm very skeptical about all this
You answered my question about why the military couldn't get a fighter plane up in the air until 9:30 with a very technical (though possibly correct) but unsatisfying answer, so I'll try again, since this is a very important question IMO: Why couldn't the military get a figher plane up in the air to defend the capital before 9:29? AND, in view of the fact that they didn't, don't you find Minetta's conversation with Cheney extremely suspicious?

With regard to the towers, I'm sorry, but I just can't picture the idea that the explosives that resulted in the worst single day disaster in our country's history were put there because those who ordered it thought it would make us safer. I don't doubt that they were put there prior to the attacks, in fact I strongly believe that they were. But for safety reasons?

It seems to me much more logical that our government had them put there, not for safety reasons, but to justify two wars that it badly wanted long before 9-11-01. The military's resonse (i.e. lack of response) to the attacks strongly supports that theory IMO.
