Hijack Field Training Exercise on 9/11

From Michael Ruppert:
I have obtained an on-the-record statement from someone in NORAD, which confirmed that on the day of 9/11 The Joint Chiefs (Myers) and NORAD were conducting a joint, live-fly, hijack Field Training Exercise (FTX) which involved at least one (and almost certainly many more) aircraft under US control that was posing as a hijacked airliner.
Michelle asks "How nice a cover might that be for what actually took place?" I ask: "What if those FTX planes were the ones that did hit the WTC towers and the Pentagon?" It is well within U.S. technological capabilities to hijack planes by remote control. This would also explain the reports that many of the 19 supposed hijackers are alive and living in north Africa.

The extent of the coverup and misdirection used by the Bushies to prevent us from finding out what really happened on 9/11, and the subsequent documentation of how readily they will lie about anything, makes even the most implausible of conspiracy theories seem possible. These people used lies, dirty tricks, and outright theft to gain the White House. They distribute huge amounts of taxpayer money to their cronies in secret. They've started two wars on false pretenses (three if you count Haiti), killing thousands in the process. They've taken steps in advance to protect themselves from being prosecuted for war crimes which they subsequently committed. They have systematically violated the Constitution they swore to uphold. There really is no basis for believing that there are certain things so awful that they are not capable of doing them. They are criminals. Criminals commit crimes, and try not to get caught.
