"Besides, where else could flight 77 have gone?"<quoted text>
Yep. It sure did. You ignore the evidence which are well documented and photographed. Besides, where else could flight 77 have gone?
The pilots opinions are irrelevant as is everything else presented in your links.
Nice try though. Still nothing. Try again.
Several other proposals were included within Operation Northwoods, including real or simulated actions against various U.S. military and civilian targets. The plan was drafted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed by Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer and sent to the Secretary of Defense. Although part of the U.S. government's Cuban Project anti-communist initiative, Operation Northwoods was never officially accepted; it was authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then rejected by President John F. Kennedy.
One of the most fascinating aspects of Operation Northwoods involved the proposed hijacking of an American passenger plane. The JCS proposed that a real plane containing American passengers would be hijacked by friendly forces disguised as Cuban agents. The plane would drop down off the radar screen and be replaced by a pilotless aircraft, which would crash, purportedly killing all the passengers. Under the plan, the real passenger plane would be secretly flown back to the United States.
But in the 911 scenario, they were secretly flown to an unknown undisclosed destination.
Now tell me the US govt couldn't pull off this type of operation and cover their tracks after it was executed.
You'd be a fool to answer no.
