Heres more flawed logic from Aura Myths.
1. Aura Myths states: No reason to consider SAM's, because the intercept aircraft failed.
In reality, the Pentagon did and does have access to SAM battery protection, and using SAM's is irrelevant to the failure of the aircraft intercepts.
"Mr. Vice President, the plane is 40 miles out, then 30, then 20, do your orders still stand?"
"Of course they do, have you heard me say anything different?"
That is a stand down order, plain and simple.
2. Aura Myths states: No one predicted planes could be hijacked and used as weapons.
In reality, the drills on 9/11, and before, that crippled our ability to respond and prevent some of the damage, were based on exactly that scenario. In the mid 90's, Tom Clancy wrote a book on exactly that scenario.
3. Aura Myths states: It was impossible to intercept those aircraft, given their short range after hijack to target.
In reality, this is just patently false. What made it impossible was how drills, supposedly intended to give us better security, instead destroyed our security by cluttering up our ATC radars with false tracks, engaging our alert fighters so airbases near the hijacks were unavailable for deployment.
Aura Myths parrots propaganda that It was impossible on 9/11 to prevent it. Reality & logic state that only on 9/11 was it impossible to prevent or minimize 9/11, due to the crippling training exercises.
The idea that the terrorists accidentally timed their attacks to coincide with our drills, that severely disabled our response to it, is the real myth.
But Aura Myths fits in nicely with the smear campaigners of anti-truth that inhabit this topic. He knows as they do, that you don't need logic to debate your points, all you need is fraudulent condescension, because
Insults Are Easier
Why is it twofers like Ignorance are always lying to cover for other lies they previously told?
Oh right, it's the twoof!
