And who does DoD report to? We The People or to Pres. Obama? Tell us, can you tell if a plane is armed when it is coming at you at 500 mph?
But then again the Russians do not seem to be able to tell a AN-26 turbo prop from a Boeing 777 jet airliner.
Hummm, did I say I could tell if a COMBAT plane doing 500 mph is armed? Well no but I assume they are. How many of you assumed that all F-15s and F-16s in the US are armed prior to 9/11/2001? You do they lunched to UNarmed F-16 to intercept UAL Flt 93 and where ordered to bring it down and the twp pilots had decided to RAM their aircraft into it as they had no weapons of their aircraft.<quoted text>
Birfoons lapped up the fake story that the press release included 27 letters of resignation from crying sailors.
Incidentally, you can tell if a 500 mph SU 24 is armed with missiles. Duh!
But what is sad is that in two seconds this post will self destruct in the back of you brain as it conflicts with what you think you know as the truth.From Wiki: Two F-16 fighter jets from the 121st Fighter Squadron of the D.C. Air National Guard were scrambled and ordered to intercept Flight 93; the pilots intended to ram it since they did not have time to arm the jets. They never reached Flight 93 and did not learn of its crash until hours afterwards.
