The NORAD Papers

Testifying before the 9/11 Commission General Richard Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the commission in response to NORAD’s mission, "I can't answer the hypothetical. It's more - it's the way that we were directed to posture, looking outward."1 This is utterly false. As we will see below NORAD, since its inception, was tasked to monitor and intercept aircraft flying over American and Canadian air space seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
"Aircraft flying over our air space are monitored seven days a week, 24 hours a day." -- NORAD: Air National Guard manning stations across the country; National Guard Association of the United States, Sep. 1997

Various individuals in the US military were lying at the 911 Commission. General Myers (among others) needs to be hauled before the courts and made to account for himself.

The fact that no hijacked aircraft were intercepted in over an hour on 911 is preposterous considering that errant aircraft in past instances had been intercepted in less than 20 minutes.
