Some of what happened on 9-11, such as planes flying into

The crash of the first hijacked jet into the World Trade Center
made it clear
the United States was faced with an extraordinary situation.
This should have

'American Forces Press Service' reported that ordinary people
working at the
Pentagon worried they could be next:

U.S. air safety and air defense emergency systems are activated
to problems every day. On 9-11 they failed despite, not because

high positions worked in a coordinated way to make them fail.
Such operatives would almost surely have failed if they tried
to disrupt and

Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force General Richard B.
In the following summary of evidence we will demonstrate
probable cause for
charging the above-named persons with treason for complicity in
of thousands of people whom they had sworn to protect.
The summary of evidence covers the following areas:
* Andrews Air Force Base and the myth of 'no available planes;'
* The air safety/air defense systems and the myth that they
were not prepared;
* The actions of George Bush on 9-11 that clearly violated his
and constitutional obligations and demonstrated consciousness
* The testimony of General Richard B. Myers at Senate hearings

Myers attempted to cover up what had happened 9-11 when he was
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. He offered three mutually
stories and demonstrated consciousness of guilt;
* The cover story floated by CBS evening news, September 14th.
Until that time, officials reported that no planes had been

testimony, CBS broadcast an improved version of 9-11. In the
fighter jets from Otis and Langley Air Force Bases did try, but
intercept the hijacked planes. This is now presented as the
story and has been repeated uncritically by media and
alike. We will demonstrate that this cover story is both weak
SECTION 1, PART 1: Why did no fighter jets 'scramble' to
LIE #1: 'NO COMBAT READY FIGHTERS WERE STATIONED NEAR THE
As noted, Andrews Air Force base is 10 miles from the Pentagon.
The media has
mainly avoided talking about Andrews. An exception is 'USA

contradictory stories to explain the failure to scramble jets
prior to the Pentagon crash:
FIRST 'USA TODAY' STORY:
"Andrews Air Force Base, home to Air Force One, is only 15
miles [sic!] away
from the Pentagon, but it had no fighters assigned to it.

--'USA TODAY,' 17 September 2001 (3)
SECOND 'USA TODAY' STORY:
"The District of Columbia National Guard maintained fighter
planes at Andrews
Air Force Base, only about 15 miles [sic!] from the Pentagon,
planes were not on alert and not deployed."
--'USA TODAY' September 17, 2001 (4)
Both stories are false.
Only one newspaper told the truth. That was the 'San Diego

Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland near the District of
Columbia border. The
D.C. Air National Guard is also based there and equipped with
planes, a National Guard spokesman said.
"But the fighters took to the skies over Washington only after
devastating attack on the Pentagon..."
--'San Diego Union-Tribune' 12 September 2001. (5)
Andrews Air Force Base is a huge installation. It hosts two
* the 121st Fighter Squadron (FS-121) of the 113th Fighter Wing
equipped with F-16 fighters;
* the 321st Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA-321) of the
49th Marine Air
Group, Detachment A (MAG-49 Det-A), equipped F/A-18 fighters.
These squadrons are served by hundreds of full-time personnel.
THE 121st FIGHTER SQUADRON, 113th FIGHTER WING
"...as part of its dual mission, the 113th provides capable and
forces for the District of Columbia in the event of a natural
civil emergency. Members also assist local and federal law

THE 321st MARINE FIGHTER ATTACK SQUADRON (VMFA-321)
"In the best tradition of the Marine Corps, a 'few good men and
support two combat-ready reserve units at Andrews AFB.
"Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 321, a Marine Corps

So Andrews AFB had at least two 'combat-ready' squadrons.

Our research has been carried out mainly by volunteers.
Newspapers and TV
news departments have full-time research staffs. The important
bureaus in Washington DC, just a few miles from the Andrews
haven't newspapers and TV news programs reported the truth:
that Andrews job
was to protect DC?
This failure is especially striking because some media did
fighters scrambled from Andrews, but only after the Pentagon
was hit. Thus
they were aware that Andrews was supposed to defend D.C.:
" Within minutes of the attack American forces around the world
were put on
one of their highest states of alert - Defcon 3, just two
notches short of
all-out war - and F-16s from Andrews Air Force Base were in the

"WASHINGTON - ...an audible gasp went up from the rear of the
audience as a
large black plume of smoke arose from the Pentagon. Terrorism
suddenly was at
the doorstep and clearly visible through the big glass windows

Andrews Air Force
Base and other installations and cross-crossed the skies...
"A thick plume of smoke was climbing out of the hollow center

--'Denver Post,' 11 September 2001 (8)
"It was after the attack on the Pentagon that the Air Force
then decided to
scramble F-16s out of the DC National Guard Andrews Air Force
Base to fly
cover, a--a protective cover over Washington, DC."
--NBC Nightly News, (6:30 PM ET) 11 September 11 2001 (9)
The media should have demanded to know the truth about why
assigned to protect Washington didn't scramble an hour BEFORE
Besides fighters, tanker planes and AWACS were also readily

least 250 miles. This is almost the full distance from the

Cheney admit that these planes did not go into the air over
after the Pentagon was hit.
Here is General Myers, testifying 13th September:

"MR. RUSSERT: And you decided?'
"VICE PRES. CHENEY: We decided to do it. We'd, in effect, put a
air patrol up over the city; F-16s with an AWACS, which is an
system, and tanker support so they could stay up a long time."
the Press' (10:00 AM ET) 16 September 2001 (11)
As we shall see, Mr. Cheney's statement that "the toughest
decision was this
question of whether or not we would intercept incoming
