9/11 NORAD Tapes Released

Michael Bonner publishes in Vanity Fair after getting full access to the NORAD tapes fromĀ  9.11. Contradictions from the investigation reports and testimony:

Vice President Cheney was not notified about United 93 until 10:02 – only one minute before the airliner impacted the ground. Yet it was with dark bravado that the vice president and others in the Bush administration would later recount sober deliberations about the prospect of shooting down United 93.

United 93 had crashed before anyone in the military chain of command even knew it had been hijacked.

[C]ommission members I spoke to dismissed this fog-of-war excuse and pointed out that not only had the military already reviewed the tapes but that the false story it told at the first hearing had a clear purpose. “How good would it have looked for the government in general if we still couldn’t have stopped the fourth plane an hour and 35 minutes [into the attack]? How good would it have looked if there was a total breakdown in communication and nothing worked right?”
