bombs away

the most damning bit of evidence that "bush knew" is still underreported in the press. why did it take so long even after the wtc attacks for the airforce to scramble planes over washington. andrews air force base is 10 miles from washington dc. the third plane did not hit the pentagon until 40 minutes after the second plane hit the south tower. you could have towed a plane through dc rushhour traffic jams in that amount of time. the faa know almost immediately when a plane deviates from its flight pattern. so there is no rational explanation other than that they wanted it to happen or that the military is manifestly incompetent. neither option is particularly comforting.
