Dear WasteWater,<quoted text>
The offical report explained that. Basically ATC and NORAD did not work together effectively. Also, there is a chain of command which required authorization from the Commander in Chief to fire on a civilian aircraft.
Element of surprise. Obviously the guys doing the job got it done. The pilot was at a disadvantage strapped into his seat and occupied flying the plane.
Yes it was a well executed. I doubt they cared where they hit the Pentagon. Go online, look at it from the air. The Pentagon looks like a huge target which they almost missed.
Can you please quote the portions of the official report that "explain that"?
Also, can you explain why fighter planes did not intercept this civilian aircraft? Note that intercept does not mean fire upon. Intercept simply gives NORAD options and information that they do not have otherwise.
"Yes, it was well executed" by a man who can barely fly a small plane? How is this possible, do you think?
I saw a comparison of the Pentagon to the Empire State Building here - http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bestand:Building...
The Pentagon is much bigger target from the top than it is from the side/ ground level, where it was hit.
