Canada and 9/11: FYI
Ever wonder why it was that during the aftermath of 9/11, Canada was so prominently fingered. The answer might lie in the new Vanity Fair expose of NORAD military tapes that they obtained.

Full story here: 9/11 Live: The NORAD Tapes

A Must Read for 9/11 Enthusiasts and an important document for everyone else, not really interested generally in the subject...

BUT: back to the Canada thing

From the article:

Meanwhile, however, NEADS has gotten a call from a NORAD unit in Canada with yet another suspected hijacking headed south across the border toward Washington. In the barrage of information and misinformation, it becomes increasingly difficult for the controllers to keep count of how many suspected hijackings are pending. So far, it is known that three have hit buildings, but given the uncertainty about the fates of American 11 and American 77no one knows yet that this is the plane that hit the Pentagonthe sense at NEADS is that there are possibly three hijacked jets still out there, and who knows how many more yet to be reported. At this point, no one on the military side is aware that United 93 has been hijacked.

At what feels on the tapes like the moment of truth, what comes back down the chain of command, instead of clearance to fire, is a resounding sense of caution. Despite the fact that NEADS believes there may be as many as five suspected hijacked aircraft still in the air at this pointone from Canada, the new one bearing down fast on Washington, the phantom American 11, Delta 1989, and United 93the answer to Nasypany's question about rules of engagement comes back in no uncertain terms, as you hear him relay to the ops floor.

10:10:31NASYPANY (to floor): Negative. Negative clearance to shoot. Goddammit!
FOX: I'm not really worried about code words at this point.
NASYPANY: Fuck the code words. That's perishable information. Negative clearance to fire. ID. Type. Tail.

Could it be simply because of some spurious hijacking report handled by NORAD on that day, the Bush criminals simply grabbed this up from the information stream and 'blue sky'ed' it?
